Outfit: Time Won’t Change You

Here’s the thing about me and stress:  as much as I work myself up, get anxious, and generally freak out about all the things I need to do, I absolutely thrive on it.

Over the last few months, I’ve become that person who’s always busy.  At work, I despise taking breaks and generally prefer to forge ahead all day long.  At home, I fill up all my leisure time with runs, taking pictures, teaching myself photography, walking and playing with Moxie, cooking, seeing friends, “dating” (I’m conveniently going out with a guy who’s super busy all the time, too), and not letting my butt touch a single chair.  It’s kind of like the “floor is lava” game for grown-ups.

Sometimes I get to a point where I consciously understand that I need to take a break.  At those times, I write a note in my planner to take a break.  I’ve even begun scheduling one “rest” day each week for me to do nothing.  The thing is, when I get to those times and days, I want to fly to pieces!

Still, I know it’s good for me, so I’ve been practicing resting.  I’m not that good at it right now, but I hope that soon I can be a regular couch potato (or bed potato, since I don’t have a couch).

Anyway, these pictures are from a day when I was supposed to rest but didn’t.  How could I pass up this gorgeous evening, though?  Speaking of resting and generally letting loose, I’m getting kind of sick of this “serious” thing going on in all of my pictures.  I gotta start teaching myself to have fun, too!

  1. Beautiful pics! You look gorgeous!
    Resting is very important, a good book (e.g. Harry Potter 😛 ) could help calm you down when you’re supposed to rest 😉


  2. “The floor is lava game for adults” – loved that. Being busy is always good, but yes try to take a little downtime. 🙂 Also, I must say, I think this is my favorite outfit of yours! Gorgeous I love every bit of it! And your hair is perfection.

    Hope you’re having a great weekend, Devinne! (And try to take a little downtime. Haha.)


    P.S. I’m loving the new name!


    1. Thank you! I wanted to get a little dressed up, lately I don’t have much occasion to do that so I thought it would be fun for an outfit post! As for downtime, well, I’m working on it!


  3. Love the new name for the blog, and the details on this dress are so pretty! Your photos always have such good backgrounds.


    1. Thank you very much! I’m extremely lucky to live in a town that’s got so many parks and well-maintained turn-of-the-century houses. If only I lived in one!


I'd love to hear from you!
