These were taken last week, when it was much, much colder. I know the temperatures are bound - guaranteed - to drop this week, but for now, I'm enjoying the sun, and post-work daylight hours. Oh, it's incredible to have the windows down, to be just a little too warm in a sweater and coat. Spring is almost here, and it can't come soon enough. To be completely honest, I'm feeling extremely uninspired when it comes to getting dressed lately. It takes all I can muster to just pull on jeans and a tee. I can't wait for the days of bare legs, easy dresses, and sandals.

Thank you so much to everyone who left book recommendations in yesterdays post, I can't wait to check them out! It's been so long since I've had a good book to read, and I gave up on magazines a long time ago. I find that when writer's block sets in, reading other people's work always helps to inspire, and lately I've needed that inspiration. This year, I've been working on conveying more of myself on this blog, something that I've always found a little difficult. To me, it's easier to write from a brand-perspective, a polished voice that carries the direction of an 'other' point of view. Not so much when it comes to conveying real emotions and motivations. Not to mention that, at the end of the day when it comes down to it, I'm exhausted. And exhaustion doesn't lead to better writing (take this entire paragraph for example).

I always appreciate your neo-grunge looks. I wouldn't wear them myself, but you carry them so well.

There were times that whatever good you wanted to show to a person or people still you can't please them but the only thing you need to do is to keep yourself calm, be professional, open-minded and patient. Everything has a reason,and an end.
