Learning to Let Go - Pish to Posh

Learning to Let Go

 

Letting go isn’t a one time thing, it’s something you have to do everyday, over and over again

Isn’t that the truth.  Everyday we spend a lot of our day letting go of things, or at least we should- sometimes they are big things and sometimes they are just little minor aspects of life.  Letting go of your past- or letting go of the frustration of traffic- or letting go of expectations… all take a lot of practice.  Practice everyday.  Like when I saw these photos I hated them (not the photography, just the subject). Like when I realized it is winter here, in London, and I wasn’t ready for it.  But thank goodness for this amazing hat and cozy scarf.  Or when I think about all the things I am, maybe, missing in Colorado.  But each day I learn to let a  little more go… it truly is very liberating.

shop the look: Dress // Shoes // Scarf // Bracelets // bag //

 

In life we come across so many opportunities to set an example for others, or even ourselves, to just let it go. Just like the next person I have a ton of pet-peeves… and some REALLY bother me… but each day I am learning to let it go.

Before we continue on letting go we need to address the amazingness of this dress, scarf and shoe combo- something I do not plan to let go of anytime soon.  Sometimes I love to be a little grily and noting says girly like a dress but I also have a toddler… so I wear trainers (translation: sneakers) constantly.  And in case anyone forgot I am also obsessed with camo.  So… I wear camo trainers– duh! These babies are good year round- fall, winter, spring, summer- year round.  And this midi bodycon dress is also a perfect addition to my year round wardrobe.  The color lends itself to the winter months and pairs perfectly with a chunky scarf.  As scaf’s are concerned you can’t really go wrong… can you?? BUT this one is so soft and brightens up any look given the lighter color plus it is ridiculously warm.

These bracelets were individually made by an amazing artist based in Denver.  She custom makes every piece to be as original and unique as you.  Check out her shop here and use coupon code PISHTOPOSH for $5 off all orders over $20 from now until December 20.  Talk about amazing Christmas gifts!!!! This hat was a gift from British Bobble Co and I am obsessed.  Not only is this style 100% on trend it is so soft and never itches my head.  Pick one up ASAP.

Let it go friends!

Recently I have really been a fan of pairing unlikely combinations together- like this dress and trainers. I mean part of it is practicality and part of it is deciding to do what I want.  I try to think outside the box a bit- I like to keep people on their toes!  It all falls in line with letting it go.. letting go of prescribed fashion rules, of fashion stereotypes and perceptions from others. Wear a dress and sneakers- let it go.  Wear white after labor day- let it go.  Mix black and blue- let it go. In the wake of working on letting it go I have found a lot of space in mind for more positive things- for things that make me happy.  I am able to concentrate on being present in the moment and think about the future in a good light.

Imagine how wonderful it would be if all you worried about was how fabulous you looked????

Make it a great day,

With Love,

    You are stunning! I love this casual chic look with the dress and trainers. It’s interesting, letting go is a lot easier said than done, but once you do it it is so liberating! Being near water always does the trick for me! x

      Shannon- It is a lot easier to say than to do.. certainly a work in progress but something I strive to do everyday.
