Sometimes you need to take a step back from everything in life to appreciate what you have in the moment and to understand that not all your dreams can be accomplished overnight. More importantly, you have to love yourself before anything. I read an article recently written by Alexandra Harra on Huff Post titled "The Art of Self-Love" (highly recommended for everyone) and it really inspired me to take some time for myself and do more of what makes me happy.
What stood out to me in her piece was when she said "I would come to find out that there was nothing missing within me — nothing wrong with me and nothing that I didn’t deserve. Through honest reflection and a mindful shift, I rediscovered the secret hiding place of my self-love. It was all there where I had left it — perfectly". With the New Year approaching, I made a pact to: do more of what I love, cut out negative influences, release love to myself, and thrive on creativity.
Now on to the good stuff, the Puffer Coat is probably my most overused piece this season. It's always my go-to when I'm running out of the house. I find that they're super cozy, surprisingly keep you warm, and instantly make any look a bit more edgy. The only issue I have is that I want them all...in my closet...now. Free People kills it with outerwear EVERY YEAR. This cropped slouchy green number from Free People was actually purchased at a discounted price on Revolve (keep your eyes on the radar for those sales). Scroll down for the direct link to my coat along with other current favorites.
The limit does not exist when it comes to coats. The Puffer trend is one of my top favorites this season - I'm loving the way this pop-of green meshes with the black.
If I could describe myself in one picture, it would be this. Always on-the-go.
Living my best life in the Free People Bunny Cuddles Jogger, seriously the comfiest pants I own.
