My newest obsession: stars. Okay, that's a lie... it's nothing new. I have always loved celestial bodies like the moon and the stars. I mean, we are all made up of stardust, after all. Rather, it's the fact that stars are trending on clothing and patterns and I cannot get enough. This printed oversized sweater from Chicwish for instance? HAD TO HAVE (turns out that was a good decision because it is sooo soft). Plus, it went oh-so-well with my Marc Jacobs cross-body bag in mustard yellow. Yes, puhhhlease. I even went so far as to capture this outfit by myself using a tripod. Can I get a, "you go girl"?

NOVEL on COMPARISON: On the real, real, though, I’m just so damn sick of myself and constant comparisons. She’s prettier. She’s fitter. She’s richer. She’s more successful. She’s smarter. It’s tiring to be on a constant cycle of self-doubt. This morning I found myself in a rabbit hole of another blogger I look up to, endlessly scrolling and pitying myself more. & then I snapped out of it. I literally had to close Pinterest (I was looking at how many re-pins her photos get and thinking about all the page views she must receive) and had a self-chat. Listen, self, her success does not take away from your hard work. Her triumphs don’t mean that I won’t have triumphs. There is enough room in the world for each one of us to see the prosperity of our hard work, and taking time to put myself down based off of the comparison of another only takes away from the hours I could spend putting myself up. The only thing you should ever feel bad about is not working, trying, or putting forth your best (& then paying it forward). This is a life lesson that I have had to learn over and over again; I’ll probably continue to relearn this lesson throughout my life.

Just remember (and especially if I have ever made you feel this way): the worth of your soul does not depend on another.
