Train observations

Have a seat and I’ll tell you what I mean…

Coat: Zara (thrifted). Jeans + Mens shirt: Uniqlo ASOS men has similar ones. Shirt seen before in this post with shorts. Boots: ASOS (seen before here with a skirt).  Bag: Alexander Wang. Necklace: bought in London. Shades: Ray Ban

I started to really think when looking at these pictures of me getting a train into the city recently.

I don’t miss the rat race.  The twice a day commuting in and out on the trains.  Little things now like getting a seat on half empty trains and doing reverse commutes where a packed train goes by at 5.30pm while I’m going the other way.  The other way – both literally and in life.

It’s scary but right now I would not have it any other way.

Please have the courage to follow your love. However silly it seems to others. No one can do it better than you because it’s YOUR love. Not anyone else’s and it’s your life anyway.  Find a way to make it happen and stick at it.

I don’t usually write like this but these thoughts were (and still are) on my mind sometimes.  I’ll be my usual fashion obsessed person tomorrow.

ps. That trench posted below? I found another small. Email me if you want it.  Also just saw this two tone version (watch the runway. That alone sells it).

      Never thought of it that way until you just said that!

    I can appreciate your reflective/introspective moment in this post! I was having a conversation about following your dreams the other day.

    Love this outfit too! The touch of bling under the color is a lovely touch!
