The other day when I was out walking our dog and I was looking around and it dawned on me just how long we’ve lived where we live. Since I was 12 years old i’ve been walking around the same village. Before that we never stayed in one place for any longer then two – three years and the original intention was never to stay where we are now for as long as we have. When I take Koko out I am hit with nostalgia, every street holding different memories from my long gone teenage years, which helps keep those important memories even more vivid. It’s nice, its familiar and for someone who instinctively feels uncomfortable with the thought of change, it’s reassuring. At the same time, it almost makes me nervous with how long we’ve lived here and gives me the feeling of a need for change. Whilst its home, its never quite felt like home or better yet, where I’m supposed to stay. I long for somewhere more idyllic and more secluded. And I guess it almost frightens me staying in the same place for the rest of life in the same way it frightens me to leave. Ultimately though, I think the need for change of location outweighs the need for it to remain the same.
Before I go I just want to touch on this outfit and how I absolutely loved wearing this!! The long layers and proportions felt dramatic in a minimalist kind of way. I am also rather obsessed with neutrals, so this outfit felt so right.
