Fashion on a budget. It's not easy. We're being conditioned into believing that $100 is a reasonable price for plain white t-shirt. And on top of that, we should 'splash out' when it comes to those one-off statement pieces. Wardrobes (and their contents) are undoubtedly a large investment for many women - particularly those so inclined to read a fashion blog.

But I think it's important to remind ourselves every so often that fashion is supposed to be fun. Not every piece has to last forever. Not every piece has to fall within your carefully crafted signature style (I mean it's probably Kim K-esque neutral crop and pencil skirt combo with optional trench). Have a little cheap thrill every so often. Try something new. Do something fun. After all, fashions aren't forever.

Limbo. I'm not talking about the game. Rather the state of being. It's somewhere I seem to find myself a lot lately. The uncertainty of the future. The lack of contentment with the past. And the sheer unease when I realise that the present may not be laying the foundations for the life I've always dreamt of. 

Maybe this is all just a premature quarter life crisis. Perhaps it's only a temporary feeling. Perhaps it's something more. Either way, when so many aspects of my life are leaving me in a state of confusion, I find it helps to keep others simple. Lucky for me, no fuss outfits seem to be 'fashionable'. I can fool some people into thinking I'm 'on trend', when really I'm just preoccupied with other things.

We will all face success. Sure, to varying degrees and in many different ways. But sooner or later, somewhere along the road, something will go just - if not better - than how we expected. I'm not here to say that that isn't marvellous and something to be celebrated. Of course it is. Just with success comes the responsibility to be mindful of how you express it.

Often our own success is born out of the set backs of others. To isolate your 'win' by comparing only your outcome to the others' you 'beat' risks blowing it all out of proportion. I am guilty of talking it up. Believing my own hype. And talking about it in a way that has the potential to make others feel less-than for not reaching the same success.

So maybe the next time you find yourself down at the tennis courts, maybe don't talk it up like 'yeah yeah'. (Yes, that was an out of date Lorde reference, thanks for noticing.) And instead, focus on encouraging yourself and others for the new challenges that await you.
