Perspectives changed

Jacket – C/O REBEL REBEL    Bracelets – C/O CECILY LONDON    T-shirt – iOffer    Shorts – American Apparel    Shoes – Jeffrey Campbell    Hat – H&M

I’m sat here staring at the screen, possibly in disbelief but more than likely I’m just lost for words. This morning my brothers Fiance gave birth to a beautiful baby boy called Leo and I feel like my world has shifted. I’ve never been very good with words so it’s hard for me to take what I feel right now and make it legible for you to read, but I will do my best.
This year has been one of the hardest of my life, I lost sight of who I was for a long time and have been longing for 2012 to end and then I’m blessed with a week like the one I’ve just had, consisting of incredible news at work, amazing times with friends, purchasing my first pair of Louboutins (which in my eyes can only suggest that I’m smashing it professionally) and then at 7 am this morning I heard the cried of my first and only Nephew, the only boy I have sworn that will ever make me sob uncontrollably like that again. This has changed my perspective on everything, I’m now sad to see 2012 go but I know that 2013 can only be better. My world just changed forever.
Note to self: Stop touching your hair in photos, it’s not going anywhere.

    Congrats on becoming an aunt, and Happy New Year…..
    Love your look…love the poses………. ;love the colors……. they work for you soooo well……
    You’re so chic! So pretty…and you have such a great sense of style.
    Love your legs in the sheer tights and those lovely shorts….…… ……You match perfectly…everything you wear…… Adorable, as you are! the jacket is so wonderful and colorful…… your eyes WOW
    Perfect balance. And your hair is over the top lovely……… I’ve always worn my hair almost as long myself……..just wish mine could look as gorgeous as yours……
    I grew up in tights, being in ballet for 13 years. In fact, mom raised me rather androgynously, so I also wore tights under big sweaters and hip length tunics and such around the house growing up. Your lovely look reminds me of all those days….epsecially when the delivery man would come and I’d meet him at the door and he’s refer to me as Miss……
    Oh, by the way, I’m a guy…and I love fashion as much as I love dance.
    I’m traveling in Europe this fall,
    It looks like you have the same affinity for tights as I have…..

    I’ve been raving to my new friends about how much I love the tights/shorts look, so they encouraged me to try it myself…
    and I have in a big way,….. denim cutoffs, high waisted shorts, even a romper…….
    I will following your blog religiously….. thanks for sharing your lovely taste and your beauty
