Outfit: Pouring My Purse in the Dirt

Every now and then, I start getting a vague sense of restlessness. I’ve got to do something–anything–that has a little bit of drama, something that can be noticed.  Most often, it’s my hair–I’ll cut it short or maybe change the color.  But since I’m happy with my long blonde locks, that’s not an option right now.  I would love to adopt another dog, but my building wouldn’t allow it.  Should I take up knitting?  Should I join the circus?

To be honest, there are two things that I really want to do, neither of which are all that prudent to disclose on my blog.  Suffice it say that both of them are terrifying but exhilarating and could have some pretty nice payoffs.  Both of them require me stepping–or leaping, rather–out of my comfort zone.  Both carry the potential for losing friends but one opens the door to make new ones.  Anyway, I realize I’m speaking in riddles, so if you really want to know what they are, please email me at moxandsocks@gmail.com.

I’m going to leave this post at that.  I could write more, but it would be even more rambly and nonsensical, so I’ll spare you.  In fact, let me turn it over to you–do you ever get that way, where you feel restless and need to do something new?  If so, what usually helps?

  1. Whenever I get restless, I also like to experiment with my hair! I feel like all my major life changes have had a corresponding hair style. I used to live above a tattoo shop and sometimes when I would come home from work and lock my bike up I would think…maybe I should go get a tattoo! I never did and I’m happy I didn’t put an impulse decision on my body for the rest of life.

    Other things I find that help – getting a piercing (WAY less permanent than a tattoo), buy something new (which is admittedly not the most productive way to shake things up), or reorganize my home. I find that my hanging new things on the walls, moving furniture around or getting rid of clothing can help to change things up in a good way. Good luck!




    1. Oh man, I would be SO tempted if I lived anywhere near a tattoo shop! I (briefly) considered getting one over the summer because I was going through an edgy phase, but I’m glad I didn’t. I like your ideas, though! I think a good closet makeover may be in the cards.


  2. I loooove this outfit! I adore the shoes, and the cardi looks sooo comfy, I want to steal it out of your wardrobe! haha!

    I don’t often get restless but when I do I just go into the kitchen and bake something new that I’ve never tried before. Haha! That’s all it takes for me really. I realise it’s not much of a help… Well, sorry.


    1. Thank you! I feel like I’m in a little cocoon whenever I wear that cardigan. And I think baking is a wonderful way to get rid of restlessness. Come to think of it, my oven hasn’t seen any action in a while…


  3. Such a cute outfit! I really love your shoes! And I always get the itch to do something different with my hair too when I’m feeling restless, haha. I’m currently experiencing that right now (and I’m visiting my hairdresser this weekend, oh boy lol). I’ll also do different things to challenge myself physically, training for a race, trying kickboxing, taking a self defense class, etc. Anything to take me just a bit out of my comfort zone. Or exploring a new place where ever I happen to be living. I could go on, I guess I feel restless quite frequently, huh? I hope everything works out for you in the end! Change can be scary, but is always, always worth it. 🙂



    1. Oooh, I’m excited to see your new hair next week! It sounds like you have a lot of great, healthy ways of beating restless energy–all of them sound like things I would like to try! I’ve been thinking about running quite a lot lately, so perhaps I could focus my energy into that 🙂


I'd love to hear from you!
