Rips & Tassels

Denim jacket- Cotton On/ Boyfriend jeans- Mr Price/ White T-Shirt- Mr Price/ Boots- Timberlands/ Sunglasses- Raybans ( Sold in Sunglass Hut stores)

I am almost done with my studies and that means entering "adult world" and beginning my career. I am at a stage in my life where I am not quite sure what my next step is going to be. I have always been a long term planner,But for some reason I have not quite figured out the steps I have to take to get to where I want to be. I know the destination, but I am uncertain about the path I need to take in order to get to that destination. Does that make sense?

 I just feel so anxious and confused. I suppose I feel this way because I am such a control freak and the thought of not knowing what is going to happen next gives me major anxiety. Family and friends can put so much pressure on you. "So, what are your plans for the future?" "Where do you plan on working?". If you don't have the answers, or the answers that they were expecting, then your future doesn't seem so bright. Should I really have everything figured out at 21? Deep down I know I don't have to have everything figured out, but the thought of leaving my life to fate is scary. I have come to the realization that I have to learn to be content and trust that everything will work out the way its suppose to. 

 Lately, I have been doing more formal polished looks, so I figured I should take it down a notch and do more of a laid back look but still with some edge to it. Boyfriend (ripped) jeans are still very much on trend and don't seem to be going anywhere any time soon. A good pair of boyfriend jeans can be so versatile, it should definitely be a staple piece for every season. I love the tassels at the back of my stone-wash denim sleeveless jacket, cowgirl vibes LOL. 

 Let me know if you guys like this look. Also, I'd love to hear about your experiences on transitioning into a new stage in your life.
