I’ve found myself falling for the same outfit in this inconsistent {and very difficult for me} weather. Cropped trousers, cute blouse, heels and fall colors. It’s a bit of a shame that I am no where near wearing a scarf or a trench coat. If I tried to put on a cardigan, I may actually die of heat stroke. 
Since moving back I’ve mentioned that my body and skin have not accustomed to the heat. I have sensitive skin to begin with and add heat and sun and I’ve got blemishes, breakouts, hives and heat rashes. Aloe has been my best friend along with Nivea cooling cream and moroccan argan oil {yes, for skin}. 
To top it all off, I feel as if I haven’t had a chance to breathe since being back home. Lots of traveling piled on with some stuff for the blog, projects on the side and setting up my professional plans. There is just not enough time in a day. There are times that people are expecting me, but I can’t be there. Therefore, I disappoint someone. It’s been hard. Very hard. I’m just hoping once I get one part of my life sorted out, I can relax a bit. 
So I guess you can say… I have not truly transitioned.

Special thanks to Ivan from Illusion Image Films for capturing this outfit!

  • Love this look! Those pants are a great color!

    I totally feel you on the whole seeking balance thing. I’m not transitioning from school and living abroad to trying to get back into life at home and set up a job and I’M having trouble with balance. Make sure you cut yourself some slack, lady! You can’t be everywhere and everything all at once!

    I’m loving that blouse on you! So classy and chic. Transitional weather is always hard to dress for, but you look amazing 🙂

    I hope you’re able to transition and get settled in soon! I know how it feels to be uber stressed. On a better note, though, this outfit is amazing! I love the color combination.
