Tales of A Wanderer


Blouse: c/o Romwe (buy it here)  skirt: thrifted  bag: Francesca’s Collections   shoes: Call It Spring
Yesterday as I was driving home from work and thinking about how I need to find a job and how I need to apply for more jobs, and how I really need to find a job like yesterday and will this subject ever leave my mind??? You know as I was caught up in all of this hulabaloo a giant semi full of leaves pulled in front of me, and the leaves were just gushing out of this truck, I was caught in this completely magical tornado of red and orange and yellow and for one second I just felt like the universe was telling me to chill out and enjoy the leaf parade in front of me. So you know what I did, I followed that truck way past my house, just because I wanted to enjoy those dang leaves. I followed him past the park where I always see just the darndest babies wobbling around like drunken sailors, I followed the leaves past the bus stop where an old man with a shopping cart filled with trash bag paced back and forth, I even followed him past the tanning salon that is actually part tanning salon part Laundromat part restaurant and  thought about tan people in their clean clothes eating bean burritos and giggled just a little. I just followed those leaves you know, because sometimes you just need to keep feeling that reminder that everything’s going to be okay. That everything’s going to work out and that someday you’ll look back and laugh at how silly you were for ever feeling scared about the best decision of your life.

  1. You are amazing. My sisters and I were at a farmer's market recently and a clown walked by. I was thinking, 'How funny! A clown" but the Littlest-Little begged for us to follow the clown to see where he/she was going. The moral of the story? You're like a child in your wonderment. I'm very jealous.
    Good luck on this new transition period of your life. I know it can be scary. I'm in one too.
    But it helps to be dressed to the nines right? You look so professional!

  6. i love this. not only do you look AMAZING as usual, but your message, while simple is SO TRUE. Hindsight is always 20/20; take out the stress of worrying and enjoy what you have around you. It's more than you think!

  14. New mantra for Sarah:
    "just follow the leaves"

    Ha, love it. Seriously though, it will be ok. Everyone panics a bit without a j-o-b, but you are basically going to rock it with your clothing designs and become famous & what-not. Please keep up your blog when you are a big fashion designer...please please please

  16. This outfit is amazing! I love that top on you, like, a lot. Woah, valley girl moment.

    You'll find a job soon, I'm sure. There is something waiting just around the river bend. Yep, that was Pocahontas. Oh well - it still applies here. :)
