Love strolling trough neighborhoods and exploring new streets. This weekend look is simple but chic with the "never goes out of style" utility vest. So practical and versital. It has many pockets to keep my son's legos and little nic-nacks he finds on our adventures! haha. Instead of the denim norm, I wore fresh crisp white trousers and my fave Isabel Marant dupes from Jessica Buurman! Thanks for stopping by have a lovely week! xoxo Karina

Thoughts

Have you ever thought to yourself, what am I doing? Where am I going? What will become of me? Those questions haunted me growing up as I had trouble pin pointing what my life was meant for. Others knew exactly what they wanted and what they wanted to become. So naturally a shy and quiet girl like myself, questioned why I didn't have a strong sense of self.  

I wanted to be more like them. More outgoing, more courageous to tackle obstacles within my own head. What I did know was, I was and I am a creative soul searching for something to feed that desire to create.  As the years went by I dove into different careers and I enjoyed them all. Why I didn't I stick with one? I like the challenge. The challenge to drop everything and start fresh. It could have been a disaster but everything always worked out. Blogging and content creation was something I thought I never could have done back then. I was too hard on myself and didn't believe in my own talents. Now that I'm older, and have kids of my own, I look back and cannot believe how much this feeling stopped me from doing the things I loved. It was so silly. I want to always encourage my kids to dream big, to always strive to be their very best, and to NEVER think they aren't good enough. I am in a good place surrounded by loved ones and have an amazing career. I don't know what the future holds or where this blog is going but I am definitely enjoying the ride!  It has been the creative outlet I've been searching for. I guess what I'm trying to get across is, it's never too late to make even the smallest of dreams come true. To anyone reading this going through the same struggles, please don't allow yourself to believe your own self doubt. Be positive and find inspiration all around! 

So back to business, how fun is this Cape?! I was surprised at the quality of the material and the faux fur. The weight and texture are just perfect! It really looks and feels like I paid much more for it. You wouldn't believe it's from Forever21! I wanted a full on grey-scale look so I paired it with a snake print blouse and light wash denim in the same tones. The western inspired belt, and my Balenciaga really go with everything. I felt powerful in this look so I wanted a statement shoe so I paired it with these OTK boots from Sam Edelman, which are a really good dupe for the Stewart Witzman OTK boots. If I had them in grey it would have been much better but the truth is I don't own them. Yet! Haha

I searched high and low for you guys to find a link to this cape, but sadly it's is sold out online. You might stilll be able to find it at your local F21 store, but I did find other similar options below! 

Comment and let me know what you think! Happy shopping! Xoxo

Tick Toc. Moments in time with JORD

We all know how precious our time is and lately it seems as though it's flying by way to fast. Time manegement is something I've struggled with my entire life. Running late to this, forgetting to do that, it's kind of embarrassing. You would think by now I would have it together, but as a creative, I can get lost in whatever I'm doing. I've teamed up with JORD watches to showcase their beautiful timepeices with you guys, and to remind myself to be more present. 

Wearing a watch that is both fashionable and substantial is something we can all relate to. There are so many choices out there, but I love ones that can strike up a conversation. 

 JORD has made gorgeous timepieces made from various types of wood from around the world. This Frankie watch I'm wearing is made from Zebrawood native to West Africa. Considered a luxury hardwood, it has beautiful contrasting stripes, hence then name Zebrawood. The champagne quartz dial is protected with sapphire glass. It actually is synthetic crystal and not glass. It's second to a diamond in that it's hardness and scratch resistant qualities are equal. So cool! I can easily dress this watch up or down. In this case I choose a more laid back look.
