As today is my birthday I can proudly say that I am a year wiser today than I was yesterday, I have come to a realization that the older I get the more simplicity I crave. Meaning eliminating all the noise around me, and focusing my energy and time to the things that really matter. Becoming clutter free not only mentally, but also physically. Over the weekend I took some time to clean out my closet because I believe that how you live on the outside will affect how you live on the inside. I’m one of those girls that can’t get anything done knowing I have a messy closet or room! Lucky for my sister, who recently moved from NY to LA , was able to benefit from this closet cleanse of mine! The things i’ve held on to are the most simplest of pieces, whether it be a nice tailored blazer, numerous of basic white blouses, and a few other classic pieces. Although I love experimenting with trends I’ve come to a conclusion that the only things I don’t ever get sick of are the timeless classic pieces, this LBD being one of them.
This particular dress is one of five dresses from Kate Hudson’s LBD capsule collection for Ann Taylor, and it embodies the woman I am today or currently striving to be…simple yet strong. I absolutely love how powerful this dress looks on any woman’s silhouette. The body con dress shows off the woman’s curves in the most subtle way , yet the strong asymmetrical lines gives this sophisticated dress a bit of edge. Everything a woman should be- strong & powerful yet vulnerable at the right moments.
I think it’s safe to say that my daily encounters with all of you (on the blog, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube) for the past few years have played a powerful role in the woman I am today. Thank you for allowing me to share my journey and passion with all of you for the past few years. Although today is my birthday, I wake up every morning feeling like the luckiest girl in the world as I get to do what I love most!
