Stop Waiting...

"I have always, essentially, been waiting. Waiting to become something else, waiting to be that person I always thought I was on the verge of becoming, waiting for that life I thought I would have. In my head, I was always one step away. In high school, I was biding my time until I could become the college version of myself, the one my mind could see so clearly. In college, the post-college “adult” person was always looming in front of me, smarter, stronger, more organized. Then the married person, then the person I’d become when we have kids. For twenty years, literally, I have waited to become the thin version of myself, because that’s when life will really begin.
And through all that waiting, here I am. My life is passing, day by day, and I am waiting for it to start. I am waiting for that time, that person, that event when my life will finally begin.

For me, life is what was happening while I was busy waiting for my big moment. I was ready for it and believed that the rest of my life would fade into the background, and that my big moment would carry me through life like a lifeboat.
Life is a collection of a million, billion moments, tiny little moments and choices, like a handful of luminous, glowing pearl. It takes so much time, and so much work, and those beads and moments are so small, and so much less fabulous and dramatic than the movies.

But this is what I’m finding, in glimpses and flashes: this is it. This is it, in the best possible way. That thing I’m waiting for, that adventure, that move-score-worthy experience unfolding gracefully. This is it. Normal, daily life ticking by on our streets and sidewalks, in our houses and apartments, in our beds and at our dinner tables, in our dreams and prayers and fights and secrets – this pedestrian life is the most precious thing any of use will ever experience.”

It's no secret that every fashion guru has a strong urge to shop, and by strong I mean an uncontrollable addiction. So naturally we feed into this addiction and take advantage of as many sales, new arrivals, and deals that you could possibly imagine. Personally I really just love the feeling of receiving that big fat paycheck at the end of the week (very hard earned and deserved) and treating myself to something I have had my eye on. For today's post I just wanted to share an OOTD of some of the things I have recently picked up on my last shopping binge. You all know I love me some kimonos and of course I had to snag this sheer floral one for my collection. I also picked up a few dainty necklaces, an oversized  simple tee, and some shorts. So for all the shopaholics out there, don't worry because I am right there with ya! Oh and if you need a shopping buddy feel free to hit me up:) I am always available to shop! Thank youuuuuuu xoxo Kendall
