Keep calm and carry on

Outfit Details:

tunic - Winners, leggings - Hue, boots - Frye

I feel like this outfit is missing a big ole statement necklace to complete it.  Hmm...



The phrase "Keep Calm and Carry On" has become my mantra over the last few weeks, and in particular, the last few days.  I feel like I'm constantly running, but not getting anywhere... just running in place like a hamster on a wheel.  Of course, if I slowed down and tried to relax, I'd probably fall right off the wheel and chaos would ensue.

Work has been busy, and I'm jugging a number of tasks at once.  Home is home as usual... meaning grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, laundry and all those mundane tasks that fill my non-working time.  To top it off, Maya is going through a rough patch at school.  She has one close friend at school who has recently been wanting to play with other friends and not Maya. Poor Maya is feeling hurt and excluded.  It's hard to explain to a 4 year old that if your friend suddenly doesn't want to play with you, while it isn't very nice, there's not much you can do except go find another little friend to play with.  And that there are lots of other nice kids just waiting to be your friend.

I know it's something that she's going to encounter again (probably several times) in her life. But it still breaks my heart.

I think a big, chunky statement necklace would complete the outfit too.

Sorry to hear about Maya's troubles at school. I have no advice to give, but I hope she'll hang in there, be her charming self, and will hopefully make new friends in no time :)

What a beautiful tunic. The bold splashy print can be cheerful on such a crazy day.

Thanks Cee! She did have a much better day on Thursday and Friday. Hopefully, she's learning that its good to have more than just one friend. :)

Jamie, thanks... the print did totally cheered me up!
