Melancholia

Something I love about this world is all of the different types of people in it. Different personalities, looks, opinions, dreams, beliefs, etc. Choosing to be relational is an opportunity to understand another's beliefs. Through that, we learn to respect and gain a better understanding of other people, while maintaining relationship. One individual who is so good at this is Liza Odachowski who many know as the musician, Liza Anne. Yesterday was her 23rd birthday so I want to dedicate this post to her and to all that she has accomplished in 23 years!!

There are always unique individuals who are so talented, dream big, feel everything, are in touch with their and use those emotions, using them to create something beautiful. Liza is one of those people. She expresses herself through music (which you need to check out if you haven't already). Her music makes me feel like I am a part of the song, feeling every emotion. It draws me in and gives me the opportunity to interpret the lyrics to mean something special to me and all that I might be going through at the moment. Honestly, her lyrics are just straight fire. So shoutout to Liza, for always knowing how to make the lyrics come to life. And for having such a passion for music, and fighting for what she believes in. Always feeling everything and being so in tune with her emotions. We can all use some people like that in our lives. Her lyrics make you feel literally every type of emotion with all that is within you. It is something special.

So this outfit represents all of that. The true simplicity of life, beauty of our surroundings, and all of the emotions we go through. Life really is simple, if we choose to let it be simple. We can live every day worried, stressed out, and anxious about the future. Or we can choose to be okay with where we are, not worry about the future, and just live in the simple truth that our life is a gift and we don't need to waste our time worrying and stressing out about it. Whatever is supposed to happen will happen. 

This shirt, to me, represents not always having it together, which is fine. Feeling everything and being okay with being sad sometimes. Choosing joy through it all. And through all of these emotions, being able to understand others better and what they might be going through. True empathy for one another and real love for each other. 

 

If you want to feel everything with all that is within in you, check out Liza Anne's music. She is so talented and sings lyrics of poetry. Her music makes you feel like you are a part of the story, feeling everything together. You get to interpret the music any way you want to, in such a way that makes you have a better understanding of all that you are feeling. 

This outfit is simply and easy. Pair a simple t-shirt with some jeans and casual shoe and you're good to go. I like to wear this outfit to get coffee with friends or just on a casual outing. If you wear this outfit during winter and get cold, throw something over it to add to your personality and unique style. I added a warm furry jacket. It is fun and sassy, which represents me so well. Also, I got this jacket for half off, which is a steal if you ask me.

 I paired this outfit with some blue velvet shoes from Steve Madden because I am obsessed with all things velvet. All together, this outfit is simple, and unique. It doesn't necessarily match, which can be a good thing sometimes. Outfits that don't match perfectly give you the opportunity to create something unique. 

Thats all for today. Happiest of birthdays to Liza. Check out her music if you haven't! And live in simplicity with the simplest of outfits.
