Another year older, another year wiser. It almost feels like time moves quicker, the older you get. Do you remember when as a kid one year seemed almost endless? When you thought the world would be a whole different place after those five weeks of summer holiday? And now it’s just like “What already more than half a year has passed since celebrating New Year’s Eve? That was quick”.
But it’s not like I feel that I missed out on anything, on the contrary I am once again grateful for all the memories I lived through, the people I met and the places we traveled. Coming back to the another year wiser-part I must say that I learnt to have a more relaxing attitude towards life. We tend to beat ourselves up over the smallest things when sometimes we are best advised to just take a step back, breathe and then deal with it step by step. For example a lot of my friends still aren’t sure in which direction they want to go job-wise. And while I am lucky enough to have found something that even makes me want to get up on a Monday and go to work I know that it isn’t something to take for granted. But I am also almost certain that the things in life that you like and make you happy will reveal themselves at one or another point in your life. It’s just a matter of time and until then you might as well take a step back, breathe and deal with it step by step.
That’s why today we share with you an editorial with a 70’s chic look. The shirt is another great find from the MR PORTER sale that I love for its print. Combined to a light blue blazer, dark blue trousers and some camel colored loafers and sunglasses this outfit is perfect for a summer party. I chose to wear my hair in a slightly wild manner so that it makes the whole appearance more relaxed. Yep, already following my advice seriously.
