Boyfriend & Lace OOTD

Hello there lovelies!

I am so glad to see the end of this super stressful week! Exams has taken over and everyone is highly strung, luckily the kids still have music practice and club soccer to work off that nervous energy. I believe that physical exercise is still essential during this tense time, it helps to calm my babies and bring them back on an even keel. They are then able to pick up the books and resume the studies - these essential breaks are even scheduled in their study time tables. 
What I have found is that they also need me to be around, I may not interact with them but they somehow feel more grounded if I’m there in case they need assistance with a problem or something they need clarified. This basically means that most of my work meetings need to happen before they finish school each day, and that my work day has suddenly become so much shorter. However, I realise that this won’t be forever and one of the reasons I decided to leave the corporate world was to  be there for the kids, so I shall  continue on my journey taking it a step at a time.
The realisation that things happen when they are meant to has never hit me as hard as it did this week. While I was, at times, lamenting the lack of time I have for work, things just kind of worked out. Unexpected opportunities open up and the path is illuminated a little more, so you can navigate to the next step. All you need to do is be real, be authentic, be you and focus on you and your path - all the rest is just noise. 
Just Be You
Today’s outfit features a lace top from Kapsule Online Boutique (last season but repeated this year) and my favourite iridescent Vince Camuto heels. Spring has not decided to stay and we’ve had some mixed weather days - typically Cape Town! I also managed to find this fringe Rebecca Minkhoff bag (which I have been coveting since seeing it abroad) from a fellow shopper and friend. It was one of those pieces that haunted me - you know the saying: “Nothing haunts you like the things you didn't buy”. 
So it now no longer haunts me and instead adorns me :-D
