From her suede-covered toes to her knitted cap, she looks like she’s not in the campus chaos, but in a winter wonderland.
Fast moving traffic. It’s a lifestyle. Cars are moving at the speed of light and people are crossing the streets, left and right. Green, yellow – flashing white man – red.
She breathes. No bustling busses, tortuous taxis or honking horns, just a break in the moment, a moment for the city to appreciate herself – the moment that has almost lost its value.
Time isn’t just simply taken out to breathe. You must be kidding me if you think I have a moment in my day to just sit.
With technology moving faster than flipbooks and life passing by in the blink of an eye, you might just fall behind if you take that moment to appreciate it, right?
I mean, who needs to hear that wave crash, or then second-hand on your watch tick? Who needs to hear the church bells at noon or see that special someone smiling at you from across the way? You’re running late for your meeting!
But think of it this way: you’re never going to get that moment back. You’re never going to hear that wave crash, that hand tick and who knows, you may never see that person again, not that you saw him in the first place.
Life has been given to us to appreciate; each person was given a role to play and a task to attain.
Walking down State Street, going to fulfill her task and play her role, this Fashionista was taking a moment to breathe… to appreciate life.
It’s like the screenshot where one person is moving in slow motion. There was only one difference in her and the other passer-bys: she had taken a moment to herself in the morning, and the slouches in sweats had not.
Being ready to roll helps one conquer the busy day, and from head to toe, the Fashionista will make her way straight to the top!
From her suede-covered toes to her knitted cap, she looks like she’s not in the chaos, but in a winter wonderland.
Well, Wisconsin’s not a winter wonderland quite yet. But just imagine: fat fluffy snowflakes falling on her DWS boots and dissolving onto her charcoal jacket and Urban Outfitters cap.
This Fashionista delicately wears colors to contrast one another – tan with grey and black with brown.
Try Nordstrom for her top, and Buckle for her bottom. She also mentioned parts of her outfit we’re from Michael Kors and American Eagle. Not only did this Fashionista take a moment in her day to make sure she wasn’t strutting sweats, but she managed to get her nails and accessories on, as well.
A moment to yourself is all you need to get your day started, not only so you can appreciate what’s around you, but also so you can appreciate yourself!
Take a second to breathe, I mean, it is involuntary after all.
