Happy Tuesday friends! We have finally been getting some fall feels here in Dallas and like any basic girl would do, I of course didn’t hesitate breaking out my favorite over the knee boots. I bought these boots last season– and while they are a splurge they are absolutely a staple in my wardrobe, amazing quality, and an item I know I will take care of and wear over the next few years. I even purchased them in black this year! Sorry not sorry because over the knee boots are just about all I wear during the fall/winter months. While I love my booties as well I usually always reach for my over the knee boots instead. Per usual, you can shop all the details of this outfit below!
However, today I want to touch on something that I have been thinking a lot about recently. Like I mentioned in this post I have kind of been in a rut– both creatively and personally. I have just been feeling like the lord has been speaking to me and telling me to take some time to step back and “look at the bigger picture”. With that being said, I have just felt compelled to get away and take some time for myself. A small getaway to be alone with God, my thoughts, and really take that time to reflect and restore some positive energy. I am also feeling the need to creatively take this time to brainstorm for this blog of mine so I am providing more value to you guys which is something I feel like I am lacking here over the past few months.
I don’t know what this solo trip looks like quite yet– I am thinking somewhere within driving distance because I would love to make the trip with Ellie. However, I am just imagining somewhere peaceful where I can spend time outside, journaling, and gathering my thoughts and preparing for changes I am going to implement in my professional and personal life. Over the past two years I have discovered more than ever that it is SO important to take some time to yourself. For some reason this is just something that has been weighing on my mind and my heart pretty heavily these past few weeks… and I know there is a reason for it. Have any of you guys ever taken a solo trip or a few days to yourself like this? What was your experience? What did you take away from it?
**And just to clarify… this is not to be an “emo” post or depressing in anyway! haha I am just always about keepin it real here on the blog and want to share my life with you guys and be vulnerable with my struggles because I know these are feelings that many of you have felt as well. I have talked with many of you and that has encouraged me to share more here on Gal About Town.**
