I Just Can’t






Jacket: c/o Topshop x Nordstrom; Skirt: c/o Topshop x Nordstrom; Tank: Vince; Heels: Valentino; Watch: c/o Nine West; Sunglasses: Burberry, old; Cross Necklace: Boticca; Chevron Midi Ring: All the Wire; Knotty Pinky Ring: All the Wire; Lips: Nars Dragon Girl

Over the last couple of weeks, specifically, the word “can’t” has ruled my vocabulary:

You can’t make people like you.

You can’t make everyone laugh.

You can’t always dress to everyone’s liking.

You can’t give love uncondtionally and always expect to get the same in return.

You can’t assume that people will do what they say they will do.

And you can’t be entirely vulnerable without realizing you will receive backlash for your honesty.

But what you can do is control how you react to all those things….and you can continue to love those who hate you.

Spread the love this weekend.  Find one thing you can’t do and turn it into a can. React with kindness. Rejoice with humility. And celebrate one another.

And if all else fails, remember it’s Friday….and pour a cocktail.

    I think I need a plaid skirt. I remember in middle school I had a plaid midi a-line skirt. How I so wish I still had that piece right now!
