Hi friends! I’ve been loving off-the-shoulder tops so much lately and so this is a recent look that I’ve been wearing on warm evenings, the off the shoulder stripes with wide leg trousers. What I love about this top is that the tie-up can be worn in the front or back, and I chose to wear it in the front to make the bow my accessory.
On a different note, I feel like I haven’t been posting much on Velvet & Vino in the past week and it makes me feel like I miss you guys! I guess it’s these types of things that indicate to a person that you love what you do. It’s been so interesting looking back at Velvet & Vino over the years. Although it started out as a hobby and a personal challenge for me, it’s become something that I’ve been able to craft into a full time job.
Sharing my life, my outfit inspirations, and travel adventures with you is something that I have a deep desire for and most importantly to be a source of inspiration for you. My dream has always been that Velvet & Vino will be a platform that not only offers valuable input on what to wear and places to visit, yet also a happy place where you can join and walk alongside with me in the journey of life. What’s interesting is as we’ve embarked on this summer season, I’ve been seeing so many different graphic t-shirts and sayings about living your dreams, chase your dreams, be a dreamer. It’s that wanderlust theme that we’re all hoping to achieve in our life.
What makes me so sad is seeing individuals who are never happy with their life, where they feel like they’re missing out on the things that they “wish” they could be doing. Why is that? What’s stopping them from doing that or achieving what they hope for? Although I’m a firm believer that dreams need to be chased responsibly, meaning we need to ensure we’re meeting our life needs in the meantime. I do believe that it’s so important to have that element of pursuit always present in our lives.
It gets me thinking, am I living out my dream and that calling that I’m to be a part of? How can I make a difference in this world during the pursuit of my dreams? I would absolutely love take this moment to hear what your dreams are. If you could share one or two things on your wishlist, what is that? Or have you allowed yourself to dream, so say “what if”?
I can’t wait to get your comments and thoughts, and as always thank you so much for reading!
