You know those days when you feel blah for no reason? Today has been one of those days. I can't seem to put my finger on any one particular thing, but I just don't feel myself. I did spend most of my day listening to lectures which really brought my mood down. The topic was pretty sad, so maybe that's it.
Over the last few weeks I've been thinking about what I want to accomplish in my life. I have come to realize how the public health arena is where I belong. I want to make a difference in the world. One that will change the world or at least how some of us view the world. I want to exact great change. I want my existence to stand for something. I have so many ideas, but I need to start by focusing on one and seeing it through to the end. I hope that I'll have the time to share with you all how this part of my life will take shape and hopefully become a reality. Wow! I've really taken on a huge task for myself. I want my being a part of this world to mean something, and it's going to be a challenge.
Enough crazy talk; let's talk clothes. This outfit was a last minute decision. I was going to a ribbon cutting at work and was running late, because I couldn't pick an outfit. I wanted to wear the skirt, but the blouse I had chosen was totally not right. As I was rummaging through my closet, I came upon the cardigan and then threw it on over the cami and ran out the door.
Price Tag: Cami-$8, Cardigan-$30, Skirt-$6, Wedges-$9, Earrings-$10 = $58
As I type this post, I've realized I don't have a last minute go-to item. Well, there is one dress that I've been wearing a lot lately. I need a more sophisticated way of wearing the dress, because it's very casual. Hmmm...I think I've just challenged myself again.
Do you have a last minute go-to item in your closet?
I think I've been soul searching for quite some time now, which was what led me to go back to school. I love that my current job allows me to save lives, but I have it in me to do more. Although I would love to spend the rest of my life working in the fashion industry, I can't wait to take the next step in my career. My passion has always been to eliminate homelessness. If I can at least somehow make a dent in the number of individuals living on the streets, I think that would go a long way to lessoning many other public health issues, such as tuberculosis. I know this is a fashion blog, but it's also about me, and public health is my greatest passion.
