STYLE
Florals never seem to go out of season. Particularly this summer, flower prints in magnified sizes are such a hit among fashion enthusiasts. Wearing any item in such bold prints and fun-loving colors is a sure way to make a statement and have all eyes on you.

There are certain times when I find it a bit tricky to wear the floral print because it has an inherent girly and dainty characteristic to it. For this outfit, I  tried to find a way to marry my edgy aesthetic with a feminine piece such as this floral blazer.

Some of my readers say I have "perfect" hair but this is how it really looks like when I don't blow-dry it. Two words: wavy and unmanageable. For a day of walking and commuting, this floral blazer adds a little extra something to a very mundane and practical t-shirt-skirt-boots combo.


SOUL
Many of our dreams and aspirations have led us to a fast-paced life. By aiming for "success" in such a short period of time, we tend to over-schedule our days and rush through daily tasks thinking that it was the most productive and efficient way to live.

If we've been working so hard to make a living and never took a break to give ourselves time to enjoy life and truly have fun, then we'll grow weary, impatient and restless.

I myself have lived this way once and it has caused me to overlook the important things and the valuable people in my life. When you're too focused on your ambitions, you become too distant to those around you as well. Although it's not really a bad thing to be goal-oriented because it propels you to be at your best, you must never forget to just slow down and live. Welcome the idea of stopping on a red light and use the waiting time to meditate, to rest, to play and to just breathe.
