lightness of being.....a boy

jacket: yanuk
shirt: rvca
shorts: rogan
sneakers: repetto zizi (canvas)

smoking is naughty. don't do it. seriously.

been feeling really good lately. calm, even, eager to take on new challenges. it's nice, really, not being pressured or exhausted. but having grown accustomed to being under a perpetual burden of one sort or another, i have also found myself worrying about losing this sense of peace and lightness. double-edged sword? on the one hand i'm giddy to have moved forward in my life and on the other, i'm worried about the security of what i left behind, a security that is now gone. it's a strange duality. so i went shopping. all a part of my trying to live in the moment and take advantage of this newfound free feeling. but more on that haul later.

5 things of note:
this morning i crossed the street and saw the most beautiful young girl. cupid's bow lips, beautiful skin, the most incredible green/grey/blue eyes. she looked almost tragic. had to force myself not to stare!

this morning i walked by a man wearing these toe shoes(?). much like the tabis, these have an individual section for each, individual toe. i was teased to bits for my obsession with the tabi flats--going back to the ninja references--and here is this man, 6-feet plus, with massive headphones, and toe-shoes. i'm so getting the tabis now. ninjas are wicked cool.

i figured out how to use twitter properly (sort of).

i'm taking up ballet. apparently, i'm not allowed to wear the tutu though (@#$%!!!)

i'm starting ashtanga. i haven't started either of these things yet, but if i put them here, i know you guys will needle me about them. so it's sort of forcing myself to be accountable and not just say 'yeah, yeah, sure....................what? i never said that...'

do you guys find things to be more beautiful/special when you're happy?

ETA: DOOODS!!! i also got my first blog award evarrrrrr. super stoked. thanks very much to simply chic. totally forgot to mention it.

It worked this time! You must have done something with the template! I adore the layout, and those shoes. I often have to force myself not to look at beautiful children, lest people think I'm not right in the head. But they can have such wide, unblinking eyes!

Lovely photos! Congrats on Twitter, I may just give in a get my own, though...we'll see....

I think I know the toe shoes you're talking about. Like the "ugly" popular shoes (uggs, crocs...) but I haven't seen anyone wearing them in my locale yet. glad life is going your way right now. :D and thanks for the award. :)

I LOVE YOUR SHOES. Wow. Yes. I agree with you and Julia about gorgeous children...It's a strange feeling. I only hope my future-offspring will be mesmerizing, too....although maybe not toooo mesmerizing...
I'm glad you're feeling good. I'm feeling pretty good too.
Thanks thanks thanks for the award, lady!

Congrats on your first blog award! It must be so relieving not to feel pressured or burdened anymore. I can only dream of that day...
