Forever 29?

As my 29th birthday is approaching I always try and make a list of goals to accomplish within that upcoming year.  I know a lot of people do this on Jan 1st at the start of a new year, but I never have done it like that. Some of the goals are light and simple ie: “Obey more traffic rules than break them.” (OK- this was one I had for 23 and I still haven’t gotten there yet!) And some of them contain more substance and depth. ie: “Volunteer with Big Brothers, Big Sisters.” Each year discovering new things about myself and attempting to diversely challenge myself to MORE. Knowing more people, reading more, growing more, serving more, loving more, eating more healthy, slowing down more, being more patient, working out and taking care of my body more, listening more, giving more, learning more, being more quiet…etc. As you can tell by now I am a total Leo and love every minute of it.

Which brings me to today’s outfit. This top and shorts are recently from Forever 21. Each year as I get older this store, as it states in the name remains the same age and as a result contains less items that I can purchase.  I am ok with it. I love a deal and when buying “new clothes” they have very savvy options.  I was surprised when I went in and found these two gems last month.  My BFF Krystal has these shorts and I loved them on her so much I got the same pair.  After all, I have a soft spot for polka dots. I can’t wait to pair this top with a colored jean and flats for the fall/winter.
