So Let The Sunshine In

It is hot outside! As I am writing this it is currently 35 degrees outside (38 with the humidex), and despite not having air conditioning in my apartment I refuse to complain.  Instead, I am going to make the best of the warm summer months and enjoy my time in the sun.  One way that I plan to enjoy my summer is by planning an August vacation, so my mood board for July is all about vacation wardrobes, fabulous swimwear and motivation to make the best of it. Enjoy!

Healing, moving forward and savouring my freedom with style

Happy August Everyone!

The past two months have zipped by, and it’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through the summer! I realize that we are already a week into August but I was having a difficult time putting together my mood board for the month as I entered August under a bit of a dark cloud.  I had finally decided to re-evaluate a toxic relationship in my life that I had let fester for far to long. I took it upon myself to reach out and be completely honest about how I was feeling.  I thought that I was heard, and I was hopeful that things would change for the better.  I gave the person some space to think about our conversation, quietly hopeful to enter a new chapter in our relationship. Unfortunately despite trying to reach out to this person I was met with resounding silence.  Rather then being treated with respect, I was ignored and put off as if my concerns and issues were not valid.  While I am generally a pretty easy going person who hates confrontation, I was left with no choice – either I could accept being treated as an after thought who’s feelings didn’t matter, or I could cut the cord.  That’s when, while scrolling through Instagram I saw the words of wisdom that I posted above “do not look for healing at the feet of those who broke you – Rupi Kuar”.  And I knew what I had to do.  So while I am sad that things didn’t work out, I am grateful for the opportunity to move forward without any regrets. I can honestly say that I tried my best to salvage what could have been, but I couldn’t do it alone. And now I have to move on.  So for the month of August, I will be enjoying my freedom from finally being out from under a dark cloud.  I will be healing any residual wounds I may still carry and taking some time to live in the moment and breathe, all the while rocking some of my favourite warm weather fashion.  My mood board for August reflects all of these goals – enjoy!
