Berry Fever

'Berry Bliss' Dress: c/o Quirky Circus (only shorts version avail. here)
Denim crop jacket: Forever 21
Boots: Lovelyshoes.net
Heart necklace: c/o Rings and Tings
Photo cr: myself

I wore this outfit to my little sisters' birthday party on the weekend! Both my sisters' friends and my family and extended family came along, so I wanted to wear something that was modest but still bright and trendy. Luckily I received a package from Quirky Circus the day before, as if it had read my mind :) I'm so obsessed with rich berry shades like this- the colour reminds me of raspberries and my favourite lip tint from Tony Moly. One of the best things to wear with a cute sundress is a cropped jacket, because it complements your shape and helps cinch in your waist!

Lately I've been realising that a curse can often be a blessing in disguise. I don't know about anyone else, but I believe there is always a reason for everything. I believe the universe gives us signs and I often listen to them to steer myself on a different path, to make certain decisions, or to see things in a different light. I strongly acknowledge gut instincts and I don't act on anything I have a bad feeling about.

In the past week, I realised something I was upset or frustrated about was actually something the universe gave me to make my life for the better. It was the impetus to break out of a period of stagnation and to set myself up for a brighter future and a stronger me, and it was from one perspective, a blessing. There will be countless curveballs thrown at you throughout your whole lifetime, but some of them do make sense- if you stop to think and acknowledge what you have learnt from it, or some time in the future when you've been shaped into the a much stronger, smarter person than you ever thought you'd be.

  1. You look gorgeous doll. And I believe too that things come to us when we least expect it and in ways we don't often realize, it makes me try to be more aware and open really. You look amazing, love this outfit :) Hope you have a great week xx

  16. The dress is really cute!
    Though I don't know what exactly happened to you, I'm glad you see it from a positive perspective! I don't really see such a deep meaning behind obstacles (I mean, the universe and fate part), but I agree that it's best to turn them into opportunities for growth instead of moping around. :)
