Outta Here

I'm off to Vegas for the weekend. We are visiting our friend who lives there and are going to have some poolside cabana action. This getaway couldn't have come at a better time.
Outfit Details: Pants: Express, Shirt: ASOS, Shoes: Blowfish,
Ring: c/o My Life in Lavender, Necklace: UO

My life has been pretty stressful lately. Lots of challenges have been popping up at inconvenient times and I've just been trying to breathe my way through it. I really do love my life and feel so fortunate for what I've been able to accomplish in the last year. But the more I take on, the more challenges I face and I'm still learning how to deal with them in the best way. In this instance, I'm getting outta here! Sometimes you just have to get back into a good mind set, am I right?

So this weekend I plan to step back, relax and come back on Monday with a clear head. I closed my shop.  If I kept my shop open over the weekend I'd be thinking about work every time I got a sale. I'd start getting anxiety about the orders I'd be behind on come Monday. That's not a vacation. That's not stepping away. Sometimes you need to completely 100% step away so that you can return feeling fresh and ready to go. I'm already looking forward to feeling that way on Monday.

I hope you have a good weekend! xo JA
