"Change the way you look at things….. And the things you look at change."- Wayne Dyer. Love, life, happiness….every now and then its good to reassess what these things mean to you and sometimes…..change is the best possible outcome.

I recently read a quote that hit pretty close to home…"Sunshine all the time makes a desert." As much as we would like to avoid hard times and just have sunshine and happiness all of the time life just doesn't work that way. I always remind myself that in order to appreciate the good times you have to let bad times hit you, often like a ton of bricks. You build a certain armor….much like this vintage moto jacket has become my outer armor when I'm not quite feeling like myself. I throw this on and immediately feel a little stronger. I'm still working on the inner armor……but nothing comes over night right?

Funny Thing About Dreams…..

The funny thing about dreams is that they are like styling a favorite vintage piece. As incredible as a vintage piece can be chances are it probably won't fit correctly…. so you adapt it by adding a belt to shorten it, throwing some leather shorts under….and adding a leather moto jacket which pretty much takes every outfit to the next level. In the same way, sometimes you have to adapt your dreams….the original dream is still there but it has to be tweaked as your life twists and turns. I'm chasing my dream till I hit the moon….no matter how many times it has to be tweaked :)

Nothing beats the way the sun rises over the water and the way the air smells in the morning on the beach. Well…..a vintage lace skirt and some Valentino rockstuds come in for a close second :)
