Why It’s Important to Give Yourself A Break

I haven’t been feeling like myself lately (probably 5 weeks). I finally went to the doctor yesterday to get some blood work done. She told me my body is showing signs of stress which apparently I’ve been letting build up over the past few months. I am trying to give myself a break and practice what I preach a little more. I feel like I need to press a reset button. Not get so caught up on my phone, do things that I enjoy and spend more quality time with the ones I love. I also need to dedicate more time to myself – reading a book in bed, closing my computer, relaxing, taking naps, cooking…(this list goes on, ha!). I just need to be and let be. Something we all deserve once in awhile. Let’s talk why it’s important to give yourself a break…

Do you ever feel like you’re watching the world go by behind your phone screen? Ugh. I hate that. There are mornings where I feel so guilty watching Charlie play while I’m also scrolling through instagram. It is the age that we live in and I guess these moments are inevitable. Sometimes it feels like everything is on a timer. I’m always in a rush to get things posted or respond to an email when I should be in a rush to be by Charlie’s side. These thoughts are the reason why we all deserve a break. A break to breathe, a break to stare at the wall, a break to not feel the pressure of those around us, a break to stay in our pajamas all day, a break from makeup…a break to just be. So on this random Wednesday this is a friendly reminder that your phone can wait and that there is no rush to finish your to-do list. Liz said so, so it is totally fine 😉

You know those items in your closet that you wish you had in every color? That would be this top. It is swingy without being overbearing and works for both day and night. I love that it is shorter so it doesn’t completely drown your figure. It hits right at the waist so you can still see your shape. Club Monaco just released my top in white and I am so tempted to buy because you can never have too many white blouses. 

My favorite open toe booties from last year are back in stock. The wedge version has been hugely popular too (super similar to Chloe’s famous wedge). They are super comfortable but also one of my most stylish shoes. I love that they can be worn into fall with dresses, flared denim, etc.

Alright, love you guys! Hope you’re having a great week! xx
