Although this is not exactly the outfit I had planned to take blog pictures in, I think it actually ended up better than expected. Today was what seemed to be a never ending series of unfortunate events that kept throwing punches at me until I was on the edge of giving up. But instead of holding onto the negativity I have decided to find the highlights of my day like I got to go shopping for a new pair of pants (and ended up with ones I really like), there was a note waiting for me at work saying how well I did last month and after getting home from this hard day I was able to hug my mom and tell her how much I love her. The lesson for today is to always tell the ones you love that you love them and to not drown in the negativity that tries so hard to engulf you. If you look hard enough there is almost always something good, even if it is only a little bit of unexpected retail therapy!
