Akira basic taupe strap dress/Missguided Duster/Ego mesh booties

Happy first day of Spring!  Sooooo…I know you all are wondering where the H+*L I’ve been and I’m super happy to give you all an update on what’s been going on with me, why I took a break, and of course  THIS LOOK!

Two months!  OMG it feels good to be back!  Let me fill you all in!  I just moved into a town home, which I am super excited about.  Moving is the best and worst thing at the same time!  There’s just so much to do and not enough time to do it!  The good news is the move was a success…the bad news is I’m still unpacking and getting things situated!

I felt that I needed to take a break really just to get my life in order for a bit.  Not saying that it was out of order, but I just had a lot of things going on at once and wanted to pause and slow things down a bit.  I’m going to be going back to school to get my Master’s this summer, which I am ecstatic about.  It’s been a long time coming.  I actually can’t wait to get back in school and stack up on these degrees. OKAY?!
I don’t know why but it’s like the older I become, the more introvert I am.  Is it just me?  It’s like I’m less concerned with what others are doing or showing everyone what I’m doing.  I’m just trying to enjoy life, you know?…Without it having to be perfect or look perfect through a screen of some sort.  I enjoy those moments where they’re no cameras or videos…just me and my people living in the moment.  It’s important, especially in this day and age, to realize when it’s okay to go missing…in order to find that peace.  I’m just thinking aloud here…don’t mind me 🙂
Now to this look!  This dress is from Akira.  It’s a basic, spaghetti strap taupe number and I paired it with this missguided duster.  My locs, I think, pulls this entire look together.  Something about the naturalness that comes from them, I just love.  It’s hard to explain.  I did these myself by the way, and they took FOR.EV.ER.  But, the time was definitely worth it.
Sorry that this post is so long, but what did you expect after 2 months?!  I promise to never go missing for that long again!  Feel free to comment and let me know your thoughts!  Peace and Love!
