Hi guys – since I am freshly turned 26, I wanted to reflect on something a little more personal. Lately I’ve been trying to just feel things and listen more to those feelings to ultimately do what feels right (all the FEELS right?? LOL). After for so long of me pushing my feelings away, I’m trying to really bring them to the forefront and listen to what they tell me.

Thus, FEELING MYSELF is très appropriate. As I’ve stated before, I’ve recently made a lot of changes in my life and I’m starting to be really happy again with who I am. I think this is because I’ve put feeling happy as a goal of mine and have put that in forefront of what I’m looking for.

I’m at a point in my life where I don’t want to spend anymore time doing something that doesn’t truly make me happy. I mean, why should we? I’m still battling some anxiety, but it’s improved dramatically from where I was a year ago this time… and I am so grateful. I am surrounded by amazing people and I’m finally doing things I love EVERYDAY. So finally, I am feeling myself in all aspects of the phrase (que Beyonce). 26 is my year!

OK – outfit details: When I saw this crop top at Forever 21, I knew I had to have it. I love the fit and the vibes it gives off! It’s perfect for the Fall transition period so stock up now, because we all know Forever 21 sells out quick and the items don’t come back! For the sunnies, I got these at Free People and I love literally all their styles… plus they are all $20!!
