Sage[esse] LOTD


This is a rather similar set of photos to my last post so I apologize in advance for my lack of creativity, here!  The truth is, I have been simply exhausted from my day job this week. I’m sure so many can relate to this sort of exhaustion… The kind that comes from hard work that doesn’t feel recognized, the hours that feel wasted and the emptiness you feel from a total lack of control… 

It’s no secret that a fulfilling career for a creative-type is hard to come by, so I keep that in mind and try to keep a realistic perspective. But your gut still knows when your potential isn’t being met and getting out of that rut feels so dire that you just want to run away right then and there with your bags packed and hop on the next train going wherever! 

Anyway, I guess what I’m getting at is I love having this blog as an outlet. If I could afford to quit my day job, run my vintage shop full time and just blog every day I would be the happiest girl in the world. Sadly that doesn’t seem possible for me right now so the time I do get to squeeze in buying for the shop, packing orders with care and snapping photos & writing a few words here and there is time I cherish. 

So, here is a quick look for today loosely reminiscent of Belle from Beauty & the Beast and I hope these quick photos will suffice because though I am just simply exhausted, I didn’t want to miss out on a chance to write here today. I’m finding that I really love sharing these bits and pieces and absolutely love having this outlet to do so. Fashion and personal style had always been a huge part of who I am and I get lost in fantasy when I begin putting together an outfit or dreaming up new coordinations. I’m just thankful to have this escape though I wish I would have started blogging so much earlier! ❤
