dare to wear?

Good morning! Last night’s Justin Bieber concert was amazing. He might not have been at his best, but that didn’t stop us from having a blast. Before we became parents me and my husband used to go to concerts and other cultural events quite frequently. I’ve learned that even though I almost every time feel like I want to cancel last minute, I never regret going and always end up having the time of my life. Yesterday was amazing not only because I’m a belieber (haha sorry just had to), but because everyone in our loge let loose and rouse the energy to the roof.

Enough about Bieber. What I really wanted to say was that I’m so glad I saved this timeless pleated Dolce & Gabbana silk dress in my wardrobe. I’ve had it for almost 10 years and completely forgotten about it until I tried to come up with an outfit with something pleated. This little black dress might feel boring since I wore it so much back in the days, but I love how versatile it is and that I dare to take it out for a stroll also during daytime. This fall the collections are filled with wonderful party dresses and dressy pieces. Why not purchase something extra ordinary for once, and wear it with soft knits during daytime and glitter and heels for night time?

Wow! Life really can be wonderful can it? and when it is it’s important to stop and take notice. Lately I’ve been in the middle of all kinds of news. Both good, surprising and bad. You never know where life takes you, but it’s important to know life is happening right now. Not once a project is coming to an end or when a tough phase is over. It’s now. I try to keep that in mind in the middle of everyday chores and sometimes chaos. It helps me to put things into perspective and remember to be thankful.

Right now I’m thankful to have my other half back home after a long trip. I got to sleep in and what makes me happier than anything is seeing my children be so excited to have their dad home. Also, having my best friend close to me to share and juggle life with is unbeatable. Every day and every individual is blessed with something. To recognize those blessings is the key to a positive spirit. At least in my life.
