I have had this 80s agora mix sweater for ages…I never had the guts to wear it because, well, it’s green. I just don’t really know it this color suits me all that much. Green, yellow and purple are colors I never usually gravitates towards because I feel like they make my complexion even darker than it already is. But today, I put my big girl pants on and got some courage to wear it. It’s so freaking soft too!!!
Hubs and I were walking around town and just went for a small stroll into the woods before we hung out with family. The weather was beautiful and it was good enough for me to just get away with wearing a sweater without a jacket. October has been a good month so far and we’ve been super lucky. Hubs has enjoyed every moment he got here so far because it wasn’t too too cold (as it usually is in October).
So here’s how my outfit turned out…I guess you can say I kept it pretty simple because the green was a little overwhelming for me.
WHAT I WORE:
SWEATER: Vintage (80s) Rino Rossi (posted for sale on ETSY)♦ JEANS: Buffalo (thrifted) ♦ BOOTS: Aldo ♦ SUNNGLASSES: Forver 21 ♦ BELT: Calvin Klein
In person, I guess I felt a little awkward wearing such a powerful color…but looking at myself through these photographs, I realize that I may be a little too harsh on myself and that green actually suits me and that my complexion is fine. We sometimes just put limitations and boundaries from ourselves to ourselves (if ya gys know what I mean). We need to be kind to ourselves once in a while…we tend to forget we’re human.
Wearing green actually made me happy as I fit in with nature and mt surroundings…or whatever green left there is in my surrounding. Taking some time off these past few weeks has made me realize that life needs to be enjoyed fully…make every moment worth it and last. Sometimes, we run to catch up with life and then we forget about the true core values of our lives such as family and health. It is necessary to taste what’s around us with our senses and our hearts.
As mother Teresa said: “Be happy in the moment, that’s enough, Each moment is all we need, not more.”
