holiday 2013 day 9


river island tee*
topshop skirt
zara wedges

Off home today! Sorry things have been sporadic but I've been reacessing loads of things and planning on how to changing things up a little upon my return to the UK. I think its always nice to come away from things and think about what you really want to do and where you want to go in life. I've been feeling so lost recently and the last 6 months have really taken it's toll on me emotionally and physically. Sometimes you need to be alone, think about life and just work out what you really need to do in order to be the best person you can be. I feel like I haven't been me in so long now, IM a shadow of my former self and reading my blog back, Im really not that person I was a year, two years or even three years. My life is different now Im older, I have adult responsibilities and more on my plate than I did when I started this blog. My life has changed from living in a small town, working in a bakery and having nothing to my name. I now have a successful blog, live in a city I've always dreamed of and sometimes I think my life is so surreal I don't even realise how not normal my life actually is.

I think John Green said it best "Don't forget to be awesome". Time to be awesome again. Watch this space.

    This outfit is really cute. There aren't enough polka dots in the world! Hope you're enjoying your holiday.

  8. The vacation sounds like it was great timing for you because you had time to relax and think about a lot of things that were on your mind without the added stress. Just remember to save time for yourself and don't rush things. Take it easy and breathe. Watch a chick flick :)

  16. Love this look. I know how you feel, I've been feeling very lost and I'm not the person I was even a month ago. I could really do with a holiday or a little break too x

  43. this is such a cute outfit lily - i love it! :) i wish i could pull something like this off but unfortunately crop tops just aren't for me! when i first saw flatforms out and about (e.g. people wearing them, in shops etc) i wasn't all that keen but they've now grown on me and i'm really keen on getting myself a pair - i think they look especially great in this outfit! i'm also super glad that you're feeling more like yourself (and also that you're so comfortable sharing how you're feeling with us all!) - can't wait to see what your future holds, especially in regards to your blogs/youtube channel! :) X
