All About That Balance

Ahoy!

I bring to you, some truly interesting outfits I wore this week. Wearing hair clips from Sally Beauty Supply that the box states is for children, and risk-taking pattern mixing?

‘TWAS NOT A DULL WEEK…

Aight, so the heart hair clips are from Sally Beauty Supply as I mentioned, and the choker I paired with it collectively just screams: Oh 90’s, Where Art Thou?

The choker necklace, I have no idea where it is from. My sister gave me it because she said she didn’t like how it looked on her. Score for me – I love it! It’s such an unusual choker…I don’t think I’ve ever seen one like it.

It’s a Friday so I thought why not; let’s pair a bird-printed top with a floral skirt. Because I have only one life to live and I’m going to live it well. At first hesitant, I then decided to give it a go.

YET SOMEHOW…IT WORKED.

With the dark blues and light blues, it comes together gloriously in an explosion of irony. Birds and flowers, unite. Mixed prints, unite. I wore my black T-strap flats with the outfit, which tied it all together.

A lady this morning at the café I go to said I looked “fun” today.

YESSS!

Fun is what I aim for. I like my outfits to be fun and playful, so it was a success.

In other news, it was a good week and seemed to go by really fast. I blinked and it was suddenly Friday. Outside of work, I’ve been drawing and reading, even more so…

I made a pretty new drawing, and I’m going to get it framed and take it with me to my next art showcase, which will be September 1st! I love the colors I went with…I wasn’t sure what kind of colors I wanted initially, but I just thought, the brighter the better. Very pleased with the outcome. ♥

As for reading, I’m only a chapter away from finishing No Easy Day, an autobiography of a Navy SEAL. This is my third SEAL book and I love it just as much as the others I’ve read.

It’s the dichotomy. I love extremely girly things, but I need a balance, and that’s where the testosterone-fueled, jumping-out-of-helicopters, action-packed genre of books I enjoy comes in.

It’s like the yin and yang. Or YANG AND YIN?

This leads me to an observation. My fascination with things totally opposite of me isn’t just with books. Come to think of it, if I reflect on my very short list of guys I have gone out with in the past: one was super logical/technical-minded, and another was in law enforcement and really loved guns, and very much was a logical thinker.

In other words, polar opposite from me.

SEE WHAT I MEAN?

If I (ever?) at some point feel like dating again in the years ahead, perhaps I should lean towards dating a fellow artist, or something along those lines? The thing is, I enjoy learning about someone who is totally different than me. I still am not sure if the whole opposites attract is good or bad when it comes to the romantic spectrum. What do you all think? Enlighten me.

I tend to gravitate towards the more left-brained I suppose, to offset my blissfully creative albeit scattered right-brain. You know I’m all about the artsy life…

Or more accurately for me, a Dodge.

See ya!!! ♥

  1. You look fun every day! Kids’ barrettes and pattern mixing? Yes, please! Your new artwork is lovely; orange and purple always pop! As for dating, I think it’s hard to say which “type” of person, opposite or otherwise, is best. I think the most important thing is that the guy gets you. Oh, and having the same sense of humor. Or any sense of humor! I once briefly dated a humorless guy, and I always felt like I was on a job interview. Anyway, good luck if you decide to get back out there. If it’s meant to be, you’ll find your Prince Charming. 🙂
