"You don't set out to build a wall. You don't say 'I'm going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that's ever been built.' You don't start there. You say, 'I'm going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid. You do that every single day. And soon you have a wall."

Oh I just heard about this quote and I needed to share it with you guys! I just love this quote so much I cant believe its by Will Smith... Anyway, happy Monday girls are you digging todays look? The top is from persunmall it came in the mail last week and I knew I needed to do an OOTD featuring this top ASAP. When I first spotted this checkered trend I loved it but I never though I would wear it... But what do you girls think?

Try a similar look:

  5. I nearly picked up a top like this from Zara but was afraid I'd look too much like a chequered flag. You're making me kick myself now though as it looks great.

  24. Love this outfit very sporty luxe and the pop of neon is great! I remember reading somewhere Will Smith saying that when he and his brother was kids his father took them to lay bricks to create a wall every weekend, that is how he taught them that working hard consistently produces big results. I think the quote comes from that story.
