So, I get lost. A lot. Probably more than your average person does. Or maybe not – after all, I’ve only ever been me, so it wouldn’t be very fair to make assumptions like that. But it feels like a lot. My lostness (is that even a word?) – it seems big. Profound. Intense. Sometimes scary. But I’ve grown to love it. All of it. I used to be quite deadly afraid of these lost episodes, but now I see that they’re just inevitable parts of human existence. It’s in our nature. No matter how often it occurs – it just simply does; over and over. And it’s quite funny in a way. You organize your life, find all the missing pieces to your puzzle. And it finally feels like you’ve got IT (!!!), something that you were looking for all along. Now you can start living. You finally found yourself. How cool, right? Until you wake up one beautifully painful morning with that nagging feeling in your chest, telling you that something is missing. And suddenly, without you even noticing, there’s a bunch of new riddles you’ll have to uncover. And it starts all over again. It’s the oldest story in the world, really. From the first sight it can seem sort of annoying. And it is, it truly is. It’s confusing, illogical and it kind of sucks a lot. But I’ve come to conclusion that it’s the only way to grow. To discover new things about yourself. To somewhat make sense of the world that on its own makes no sense whatsoever. It’s the only way to really live, I guess.
So, embrace you lostness, kiddo. That’s the whole point.
And now about the outfit.
As you can probably tell from the photos, I’m wearing this black knee length dress that I actually thrifted a few weeks ago. At the moment I’m very into layering, especially when it’s slip dresses, so yeah, this gem works perfectly for that. I paired it with a simple black short-sleeved crop top, but I feel like you can pair it with almost any basic shirt. And my favorite Dr. Martens to finish off the look.
