photo 810683x1024_zpsd38e36ba.jpgSo lately I have been trying to gather my Athena DNA and be that strong and independent woman. I ‘m used to being tough, being vocal, and dominating most situations. I’ve learned to get the things I want I have to work hard, I have to be better and I have to continuously reinvent myself to prevent from staying stagnant. So this weekend I did something I’ve thought about doing for a very long time but just never had the guts to do or known if I truly believed in it. Yes…I saw a psychic. I must admit the whole thing was quite weird and I am a realist. I’m sure when I walked in with a look of “ummm hmm girl what you about to tell me that I don’t already know” she knew she would have to do some convincing.

Top: American Apparel | Skirt: Thrifted from Etsy | Earrings: Thrifted

Needless to say the experience was enlightening. She told me a lot of things I already knew about myself. Things I’ve been struggling with personality wise. I must say when I was younger, well maybe like 5 years ago I had a very bad habit of word vomit. Meaning I didn’t think about what I was saying before I said it…ever. I’ve spent quite some time toning that down but there is still a lot more I have to work on. She also told me that I’ve already met my soulmate and a few things about him. I’m really trying not to let what she told me have any influence over my daily life. I mean she could be Ms. Cleo for all I know. One thing that kept resonating with me was being softer. This is something I keep hearing over and over again from different people in my life. I do have a habit of being overbearing but its only because I care so much. Anywho lets get to the fashion!

This is one of my favorite skirts that I thrifted off of ETSY.com I love love love etsy for one of a kind pieces. Its a heavy knit and the colors are amazing. I immediately knew I had to have it. I paired it with an American Apparel crop top (i have this top in every shape), and my favorite thrifted gold earrings which are actually clip ons. Its funny the last time I wore these earrings I was in the Palace of Versailles in France. I feel super regal and powerful in this outfit. So maybe I can dress strong…but inside be softer.

PS. Crop tops and maxis skirts are gonna be a thing this Spring…you heard it here first!

    Pretty! I’ve taken a liking to Etsy myself. I’m trying to do more shopping on those kinds of sites for more original items in addition to the regular stores I shop at.
