We Are The Creators

"In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only do with somebody else. It's important to combine the two in just the right amount."
- Haruki Murakami, After Dark.

I'm not a rule breaker, never have been and didn't think I ever would (minus a very brief moment of kleptomania in second grade. But that's a whole other story). So when Jeff encouraged me to ignore all warning signs about trespassing it would be an understatement to say that I was a bit apprehensive. Fortunately, it was easier done than said seeing as how not one, but two, of the would-be-locked gates were open and entering this abandoned silo was literally a hop, skip and jump away.

Sometimes, it seems hard to try something new. But all it takes is a closer look at the bigger picture, and what you thought was out of your reach, is actually more attainable than you think. You just have to take control of what you want, and create your own pathway.

General Uniform

Jacket: Dotti // Flannel: Bardot // Skirt: Somewhere in Singapore // Tights: ASOS 
 Boots: Betts for Her // Bag: Alexander Wang

Ever have those days where you open your closet, glance over at the coagulated mess of colour sitting inside, and reach in to try detangling a sleeve from another? But as you're wrestling each shirt from each other it finally dawns on you, You have absolutely no clothes to wear, because despite the hoards of t-shirts, blouses, coats and jeans you have accumulated over the past few years, nothing is worthy enough to sit upon your naked skin.

Yeah, I get that a lot.

So when I was faced with that dilemma before going to brunch, I opted for my uniform: one of my many white v-necks (they're all the same, but different), a skater skirt, and boots. This never fails to start me off with a good foundation to either dress up or down depending on the occasion. In this case, it was super cold and windy, so I went for a trusty denim jacket and tights, with an extra flannel layered underneath to really cut through that iciness.

If you don't have a general uniform, you need one. Trust me!
