Fear of Walking on the Mines I’d Laid

What I’m Wearing
* Provenance Embellishment tunic c/o Jigsaw London
* Tilda mid-rise straight lucy in the sky jeans c/o Hudson Jeans {they’re much more of a cropped style on the website and I actually like them long like I’m wearing here. I’m not sure if it’s a photo glitch or I was sent a really random and really long pair, but I love them. I find Hudson jeans to be quite flattering AND comfortable and not just because they gift them to me.}
* Vintage Matisse turquoise necklace {there’s very cool green one for sale here that I’m tempted to buy} worn with Jami Rodriguez chain & turquoise gem necklace
* Various bangles, vintage and new, branch bangles, vintage Hermes double wrap bracelet
* Paul Smith Westburne sunglasses from GILT
* Kooba Sabrina handbag with rose gold hardware c/o Kooba
* Charles Jourdan anklestrap sandals in white/snake

* Hair: curled with hot rollers

* Title: lyrics from Sting “Fortress Around Your Heart”

In the midst of photographing models for my book and finishing my re-write for an early next week deadline, well, today is Memorial Day. A day to remember… but for many, simply a day off of work. There are many bonuses working for yourself, but there are many sacrifices you make as well {though nothing like the sacrifices of soldiers}. I am not comparing the two… but for instance, you never really get a day off, even on the weekends. And while it’s all 100% worth it, there is definitely something to be said for returning home from a days work knowing you’ve done your job and have left it behind at the office to relax the evening away. The same cannot be said when it’s yours… because you never leave it at the office. You never stop thinking about it. So no, I really shouldn’t take time off today, but I must. We’ve been invited to mingle and relax and BBQ and enjoy ourselves for the afternoon and honestly, it will be a nice little break. I hope you are all having a wonderful day off… remembering all the brave men and women we’ve lost to war {even though it’s rather depressing really}.

Happy Memorial MonDay!
