love it or hate it

I used to be a lot more 'black and white' about...everything really. Things were either right or wrong; fair or unfair; I either loved something or hated it. But now I find myself knees deep in the 'grey area' of early adulthood; realizing that things in life are a lot more complicated (than they should be, at least according to the 12 year old me). Although I don't always like it, the 'grey area' has a few benefits, which frivolous as they may be, help me stay positive. One of them is the fact I've eased my do's and don'ts when it comes to clothing. I figure now is the time to try things; some will work, others I'll have pics of, so my kids can make fun of in years (until it suddenly becomes cool and they'd beg me to borrow them).
Case in point, I used to not be a huge fan of jean shorts and tights...clearly I've converted. Turns out, it's a super comfy combination, and I kind of can't believe I've missed out on it for so long.

    But your wear this so well! And I love the pop of color with you green jacket!

    And I'm so glad we agree on the "future" questions! They are just no fun. Ha. Definitely just living for the present :)
