I am going to work in a couple of hours, so I am glad I woke up early to post this post. Im trying to be a little bit more consistent with my blogging and so far is going well. I took these pictures yesterday and Im glad to be and different location. I think it goes so well with this look and the colour palette of this outfit. I don't know if you have noticed, but I like wearing looks that show my figure I know my curves help a lot. But I tend to stay way for looks like these. Because I kinda feel shapeless. To my surprise even though the lines in this look are very straight cut.  I still mange to owned it... 

For some reason while I was going home from this shoot and I was wearing my low sandals I put my hair in a low ponytail. And as I watch my reflection in one window 
 I couldn't help myself to think about the movie "And While We Were Here" with Kate Bosworth. Here character always was wearing easy breezy casual and preppy blouses in blues and greys and all her skirt were a line skirts and she wore a lots of khaki preppy shorts ...  I love her fashion in the movie. Because it was everything that I'm not.. 
 I know this movie is about being shut down or caged in the of love. Its also about liberation. But I also feel that is about friendships and the people that come and go in your life. Sometimes you wonder why you bumped into a certain person in your life and you wonder if the universe is trying to tell you something. Or teach you a lessons... I have learn a lot of lessons... But  I say all this to say that I had a very unpleasant situation with a friend yesterday and my reaction was unexplainable, just like the ending of the movie " And while we were here"... And now I wonder if what the male character Jamie from the movie said its true: 

“Did you ever hear that story about the red string? […] It’s this Asian proverb. It says that when you’re destined to meet your soul mate or your family or, you know, someone you bump into on the street, we’re all connected by this red string. It can be tangled or stretched, but it can never be broken.” -And While We Were Here
