About a month ago my husband and I separated and our 3 year old son and I moved down to my hometown on the coast. This happened just as my parents were packing up to move to a different state……and everything changed very rapidly.
Obviously major life changes like going through a divorce and moving from your home of 4 years are tough…..and I'm sure you guys have been noticing my grieving process through the blog. But I will say this much…..I never thought I would be happy living back in my hometown…..in fact, the thought of small town life used to depress me. However……for the past month everything has been incredibly surreal….and being back here has been rather therapeutic.
Being around people who have known me most of my life has made me remember what's important. Sometimes, going back to your roots allows you to wipe the slate clean.
So back to this outfit….I actually wore this while in New York for Fashion Week a couple of weeks ago but I loved the juxtaposition of wearing it back home……its a spot on metaphor for my life: 4 inch heels in a field…..being all dressed up with nowhere to go…..and that's ok with me…..because that's how I've been my whole life and those that love me know that's never going to change. So right now "I'm gona live where the green grass grows……"
