Hello!  How is your week going?  Today, I wanted to talk about finding peace in our daily lives, so I put together this outfit with soft cream tones. Then, I added some definition with this silver cream lace shawl and a mother of pearl pastel pink statement necklace.  I wanted to keep my shoes neutral so the lace details and necklace could be the focal point. I cut this piece of lace and tied it up into a shawl.  What do you think?

Vacations are over, classes are back in session, and the hustle and bustle of daily life has started to kick back into high gear.  

For some of us, we never stop working and texting and bury ourselves in our phones and computer screens.  We never take the time to look up from those screens and pay attention to those we love who are sitting right in front of us!  Has anyone noticed this trend?  

I admit, I have also been guilty of this since I started this blog. How about you?  Simply taking the time for ourselves to relax in a tranquil environment (and away from our screens) seems unheard of when we have tons of errands to run, homework to do, photos to edit, and blog posts to get up (not to mention laundry, exercising, cooking, shopping, cleaning, and all that fun stuff).  It's so important to take some time each week to unwind in a tranquil environment away from all of life's daily stresses.  My favorite ways to relax are: spa days, walks by the beach, stretching, blogging (of course), and listening to classical piano.  How do you like to relax?

  1. I love the creamy tones here! That shawl is exquisite! I completely agree (and am guilty) of being tol attached to my phone and being so busy with all of lofe's daily tasks. It is so important to have a little me time away from it all. I've always loved taking a drive or going for a walk with some tea/coffeetl relax.

  4. This look is absolutely gorgeous! I love your shawl - what a fantastic idea! You look so ethereal..I love it. :) And to answer your question, I am completely guilty of being glued to my phone and computer. I really need to get better about just putting it all away for a while. My current way to escape, though, is going for a run on the trails in a nearby woods. That always clears my mind. :)

  22. You look so gorgeous! I love this cream color on you, and it's so nice to see a post like this during fall...cream totally works for fall! To answer your question, relaxing means different things to me. Sometimes going to the gym or going for a run is a form of relaxing. Other times just watching bad TV shows on Netflix is ;) Haha. XO
