REFLECTIVE


WEARING: Melissa Araujo Slit Top, Topshop Skirt, Alexander Wang Marion Bag, H&M Sunnies and Shoes.

Though I feel that I deserved it, I still felt guilty about taking a week off from my work, projects and my routine. It was hard to step away from the studio, and my circle of friends. It was a bit of a self reflective trip. I got to see some old friends and try to understand how much different we are now. Change and some self reflection are good. I found myself re-encountering some very lovely people whom I have not seen in years, yet it was like we had never left each other. I also discovered that some people are still the same, but that same is no longer something that we have in common.

This whole trip was literally a constant connection and disconnection between worlds and people. It was a reminder of how much different I am, and have always been. I wish I could have brought the ones back with me, who are so very special in my life, and that have understood me since day one. I am not your typical person, but not everyone needs to get me. I also think this is the last post that I won't need some form of layering, as it is that time of the year. Goodbye Summer, Fall is fast approaching. Life is a constant reminder of change.

  8. You know you have real friends when you get together after a while but it feels like it's only been few minutes. Love this combo and sadly, yes, soon we will need at least two or three layers to keep warm. I am not looking forward to that, but oh well... xx

  13. Perfect sunglasses on you!
    "Not everybody needs to get me", it took me years to learn (and re-learn...and re-learn) that.
    Don't feel guilty about taking time off. We all need that every now and then.

  14. Entendo perfeitamente quando tu dissestes que algumas pessoas estão na mesma coisa. Umas realmente parecem até que perderam o brilho de viver...e não é porque pensam diferente de nós!! O entusiasmo, sei lá, se esvaiu.

    Beijos e tudo de bom.

    1. Marcela, e' incrivel com certas pessoas e' como vc disse nao tem mais brilho. Eu tenho varios amigos que nao sao bem diferentes de mim , isso nao e' problema. O problema e' quando ficam com a mente fechada e julgando os outros qu nao sao ou nao pensam como eles. Nao tenho tempo pra esse tipo de gente. Beijo
