So Nostalgic

Sweater: Target {in store}
Jumper: Forever 21{in store}

I love, love, love this jumper I scored at Forever 21 recently.  
The fact that it's in one of my favorite prints this season was just an added bonus.
Jumpers bring back some Catholic school nostalgia for me.  I adored my school uniforms growing up.
Adding the turtle neck underneath, also made me feel a little like Marsha, from The Brady Bunch or even Cher, from Clueless....
Anyone else sense that vibe? 

{side note: The Brady Bunch was one of my favorite shows growing up...a close second to Friends.}

There's something so comforting about a little nostalgia every now and then.

My mom has always told me, "don't wish your life away".  
I wanted braces at 5, my drivers license at 14, 
a college acceptance at 16, and to start my career at 19.
Needless to say, I have always been thinking about the next step.

It's still something I'm working on, but as I get older, 
I understand the importance of not "wishing your life away." 

It's silly things like a girly jumper, flipping through old pictures, or watching a nineties sitcom that help me slow down....
To not think about my next move so much,
but to count my blessings, enjoy the present, remember my past, 
and know that with faith and prayer, everything will happen if and when it's suppose to.  

"Again you can't connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards.  So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.  You have to trust in something-your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.  This approach has never let me down, it has made all the difference in my life"
-Steve Jobs

Love the jumper and turtleneck combo - definitely a 90's vibe but in a good way! And also a great reminder we need, especially during the hectic holidays to slow down a bit :)
