"Ma'am Please Step Away From the Computer" (see Instagram picture). A sign so perfect for todays world that I actually needed to bring it home with me. The weekend is an ideal time for relaxation and I always find it nice to disconnect a bit from the city (and technology) and reconnect with a calm natural environment that I don’t visit as much as I’d like. When I really want to clear my mind and gather new thoughts, nothing heals quite like Mother Nature herself.
I like when the color palette of my clothing reflects the natural earth tones of the outdoors. This tawny brown shearling jacket was the perfect fit for my carefree stroll. The natural fleece material that lines the inside is lightweight and extremely comfortable and I like how the plush interior frames my face at the collar. The boots also add a durable feeling to the look. They are strongly built and reliable for longer walks because though hiking in heels might look cute, your feet will become upset quite quickly. Also, I think that wearing a bold red lip and matching it with an accessory, like this bag, is suited to the rustic surrounding and secluded atmosphere. Whether I’m alone or accompanied by friends, stretching my legs on the weekend always helps to refuel me for the week ahead, filling me with positive vibes and new creative ideas. What about you?
