With every new season I always adjust my wardrobe to make sense with the current temperatures. In the Summer I pull out my shorts and tanks while in the Winter I pull out my coats and boats, as I’m sure most of you do as well. Three weeks into Spring I’ve found myself more concerned with adjusting my surroundings than I am my wardrobe. As I mentioned in a previous post, I didn’t plan on buying much this spring which gave me the opportunity to be more creative with the items I already own and more time to focus on cleaning up the things around me. I say that phrase in a figuratively way.
The phrase Spring Cleaning have always been something we hear around this time of year to mean exactly what it says, to clean up. Often times it’s associated with cleaning your home and doing things around the house. Dust the counters, clean the floors, wash the dishes, wash the clothes and take out the trash. But what about your mental home? Your spiritual home? Your emotional home? I think we can apply this to our lives as well. This year for me personally I took it and applied it to my personal life, there were some things & people that definitely needed to be sorted out. We all get so caught up in our daily routines that we often times forget to stop and actually evaluate our surroundings, ask ourselves if what we’re doing, saying and participating in actually doing us any good? Are we happy? Are the people around us adding to our lives or draining the shit out of us? Are they even good people? I stopped and asked myself a list of questions and got the answers I had been ignoring.
I think its important to do inventory on the people and things we’re allowing to stick around in our space. Some people don’t mean us any good while others just stick around to have a front row seat to your life. You can usually spot out the rotten apples in your space, for me my intuition is always spot on! There’s been so many times where I ignored my intuition just to learn that I wasn’t crazy all along. People will reveal their selves in time and most of the time you already knew how they were. In such cases you know what to do, time to get them scissors out lol its always cutting season and this goes with anyone or anything. The longer you let something linger the harder it’ll be to let it/them go. Under no circumstances should you allow someone or something to stick around and disturb your peace, your peace of mind should always be your top priority. Many times we give people the benefit of the doubt because we love or care about them and a lot of time they show us exactly why we shouldn’t had. Get rid of all the things not serving you, period. Clean your contacts list, your IG feed, your Facebook friends, start to say “No” when you don’t want to do something, get some new books to read, get some sage, clean your home, de-clutter your closet, buy a journal, start a new healthy hobby, do whatever you can think of that will serve your highest good and leave the rest behind. Life is to short to deal with anything less. Be intentional with your time, energy, space & life…make sure the things you allow are all in tune with the type of life you can live peacefully in.
Now I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t serve you some Spring style along with some Spring cleaning lol. As I stated before life is to short to deal with any negative energy and its also to short to wear boring clothes…which leads me to this lime green turtle neck dress. If you guys read my posts you already know I am not a fan of color, especially bright colors. Neon green has literally been all over social media, The blogs, in stores, online sites etc it is definitely the color of the season. It’s currently trending in a big way making it close to impossible to ignore. I’ll admit I have given in and this dress was the perfect way to get my feet wet lol. I’ve always been a fan of these style dresses but always steered away from them because of the way they fit. I am a petite woman so any garment with absolutely no shape would easily lose my entire frame. With that I decided to put on a belt to help cinch the waist and create a shape, otherwise I probably wouldn’t had worn this at all. Another trending item right now is the plastic handbag, shoes and accessories. This bag in particular I’ve seen on several of my favorite bloggers and fashionista’s, after searching the web for one I became discouraged when I saw the prices they were going for. Uuummmm $200.00 plus was a bit much for a plastic bag, I mean I couldn’t understand why a hard, plastic, see through bag would cost that much. Maybe it’s me, I don’t know, but what I did know was that I wouldn’t be purchasing one for that price lol. Boohoo held me down though, as always they had several of them on their site for way less than half of the price of other retailers…Boohoo is definitely clutch. I am in head to toe Boohoo in this look, (i’m sure no one’s shocked lol) I’ve had these snake print booties since Fall and never had them on. They’re surprisingly comfortable and super easy to walk in, they’ll be making several more appearances before summer starts.
Spring is in full swing and I have been trying to enjoy this random ass weather; I don’t know about where you live but here in Baltimore there hasn’t been much sun AT ALL, not even a Spring thunderstorm (which I am a huge fan of). Just back to back sunless gloomy days. How are you guys enjoying Spring so far? Have you done any Spring cleaning? Both literally & figuratively? I sure as hell have & I couldn’t feel better! Remember to keep your space, energy & wardrobe in tip top shape and get rid of anything you no longer need. Thanks for stopping by and as always whatever you do, do it with style.
