What I'm Wearing: Hat: ASOS, Coat: Urban Republic, T-Shirt: Apt 9, Pants: H&M, Shoes: Converse
Hello everyone! I hope your January was amazing! I can't believe the month is over and we are already headed into February. I don't like how fast the year is going. I feel as if I'm running out of time. But we live in a world full of possibilities. My other half just told me yesterday that anything is possible. With all that said, it got me thinking, although time may be going by fast, i'm not running out of time. Anything is possible with a little hope and faith. The point of this outfit is the reflection of life and the beauty around us giving us hope for a new and beautiful tomorrow filled with many possibilities.
I look around at all the neighborhoods surrounding the city and see such rich history in everything. I look out over the water and see the Golden Gate bridge. For me that bridge is a symbol of hope and yes, possibilities. People cross that bridge to enter a city to look for new possibilities or leave that bridge to start a new life elsewhere for new possibilities. I chose to wear blue with a touch of white for these reasons. Let's start with the coat. I love this coat from Urban Republic. It's very thick and has 2 layers. I'm not sure if you can see that, but it does. For me the color blue is reminds me of the water. When I think of water I think of cleansing my soul. When you jump into the water you take a chance. I look at blue as if i'm taking a risk at life. Sometimes you get so used to living the life you are used too, but god has better plans for us. Sometimes we are scared to jump over the cliff and into the water. Blue reminds me that god wants us to jump into the water, and if not he will find a way to push us in himself. Do you get what I mean? Sometimes we have to jump into the water to find our best self and our best life. I could have worn a different color t-shirt or a different kind of shirt, but I chose to go with white. White reminds me of a fresh start. White for me is a sign of purity. I wanted something pure to let go of the first month of the year. I wish I could have done more this passed month, but I feel with the incoming month that more is possible. I want to start fresh and a white t-shirt is a great way to start fresh. Blue pants just felt right with this outfit. It brings me back to the definition that I gave about the blue coat. With these pants I felt like they are symbolizing something different. My previous post was titled "It's not that easy being green", It got me thinking being green can make us feel blue sometimes. Life has a weird way of working and sometimes along this crazy journey you just feel so down. I feel down on my so many days. The pants are meant to represent feeling sad, but with a slight chance of hope for a better tomorrow. Obviously my shoes are Converse. I chose to wear these grey converse with studs because life can be wild! Every now and then we should let loose and have fun. I feel as if these shoes are fun! There is many different layers to life, and fun and happiness is one of them. Lastly, my hat. I saw this hat on ASOS and had to buy it! I love hats and for me this hat represents the darkness of life. It's a black hat, what else could it mean? We have to be reminded of the darkness in order to have the strength to find the light. As I wear this hat with the blue & white combo, I am reminded that no one is perfect. Everyone goes through some rough patch in their life. Don't ever let the darkness over shadow the possibility of finding new light and letting it in so you can shine.
I seem to be getting more in depth with these posts, I guess it's just the songwriter in me. I hope you can understand what I'm trying to say. I enjoy doing this. It's therapy for me to write what I'm thinking and feeling inside. I hope you like this outfit and the post that went with it. Sometimes I just don't feel like writing about how the clothes fit well, or feel on me. Days like today, I feel like writing what the clothes and the colors make me think about. I hope this post gives you something to think about as well! Let me know what you think of my complete outfit and the things I have to say in a comment below or on instagram. I will see you all in a few days with my first February post. Thank you guys for stopping by and reading what I have to say. Continue to look for new possibilities, it's out there somewhere.
I'll see you soon.
