{LOVE} Everyday

Lately I've been feeling like a recipe for a breakdown, with the main ingredient being stress. Everyday is a challenge to remind myself to simply relax and realize that the weight of the world is not on my shoulders--telling myself that everything will be OK even if I can't hangout with that person, or don't have time to get that task done. This week I was reminded through flowers, friends, and fashion that life can be beautiful and simple if you want it to be. 

{After a down day, finding yummy roses in my room was exactly what I needed.} 
{Not to mention the sweetest post-valentine box from a dear friend.}
{Loving the crisp spring weather and getting a chance to wear my 
coat before the blazing hot warmer weather hits. Jeans: Express 
(old); Coat: Forever21 via Poshmark; Boots: Urbanog
Striped Shirt: Old Navy; Bag: Urban Expressions }
{Enjoying a few sips of hot coffee and quiet time before work.}

How do you  "stop and smell the roses" in your everyday life? 



  1. ohhhh I love that wallet!!!! Want to follow eachother?

  2. I've even feeling the same way. We seem to think we're superwoman sometimes. : ) you look beautiful as always!!

  3. I can totally relate! Your post made me feel better! I missed a friend's birthday party tonight because I am still getting over being sick (it's been two weeks!!) and have a ton to do before my big trip next week. Felt completely guilty, but it was what I needed to do for me. When I get like this, I have to remind myself to do what I need to do for me. It's hard, but I need time to decompress and relax before the breakdown happens! This week was out of control crazy, so relaxing tonight was amazing :) I won't fully get over the guilt though...

  5. I think it's safe to say..."Mama said there'd be days like this..." haha Love that song! I can totally relate. My stress levels have been through the roof lately! Keep your head up and do take time to appreciate the little things. I think we all forget to do this sometimes.
