Instagramming and some thoughts

I feel like I'm in some sort of limbo period of my life lately. I just got back from the biggest adventure of my life so far, and now I'm waiting to start a new one. I'm not ready to say exactly what I will be doing or where I will be going, but I am most likely going back to school this summer, if everything works out. And I'm crossing my fingers that everything works out.

I am so lucky that Matt supports and encourages my dreams. If not for him, I would honestly put my aspirations aside and think to myself, "I'm not good enough. I can't do this. I'll fail. It's not worth it." It's something I unfortunately have told myself many, many times. I still feel that way as I make my preparations. Matt helps me see the good in me, even if I have to try really hard to see it. I know I'd be letting both of us down if I didn't at least try.

That's where I'm at right now. Waiting in my in-between phase. Wondering how everything will work out...


  1. I absolutely love your bracelet and shoes. You are beyond darling. xo, rv


  2. You'll be wonderful! And that has to be the cutest phone I've ever seen. :)

  3. I feel like I'm ALWAYS standing on a diving board, getting ready to leap into something new and exciting and also scary. It's great to have someone hold your hand and jump with you, huh?

    Love those gold shoes, too.

  4. SO SO CUTE! i love this! xx


  5. Great photos!
    I often feel I'm stuck in a weird limbo phase. I mean - so much is happening in my studies and it's going really well - but I guess part of me feels so limited by school, like I'm not ACTUALLY advancing even though I totally am! I guess it's a similar feeling anyway. The good thing is that phases are just that - phases. Temporary :)

    i love following you on instagram girl. you are simply adorable!
    aww, and crossing my fingers for you in your next adventure of going back to school. how exciting for you!

  7. I am in that stage, too. I feel like its our age. But there's nothing like having a man who will back you up, be there for you, and see the best in you!! Just take in the 'in-between' feelings and find ways to come out feeling more powerful, more ready for your next adventure! And relax, enjoy the little things...so that when you're busy or stressed, you can reflect on those moments, and decide where/how you'd rather be :) good luck, beautiful! I'm along with you on this journey we call life!! <3

  8. You have so many adorable pairs of shoes! Whatever you plan on doing, I'm sure it'll be a great adventure!

  9. Definitely have been there and I am there again!! Still trying to figure it out for myself though, but having to wait before I can actually do these things too!! You'll be fine girl!!

  10. oh those limbo life moments! full of stretch and growth, that's for sure! keep kicking up those fabulous gold heels and live fully in the moment, in the meantime:-) xoxo

  11. what a truly great thing to have a man who supports you. this is hard to find, consider yourself lucky. also, consider yourself lucky because those aqua and purple peep toe t-strap sandals are to.die.for.

  12. I'm really so eager to hear...but understand totally how those limbo moments feel.  When you're ready, share the exciting news...and here's hoping you make it to school this summer!

    Love all the bright jewel colours in these photos...and the cute little animal-themed stuff!

  13. It will work out trust me on this one. I was in the same situation. Was living in DC, things didn't work out like I wanted to and now I have the best job in NYC and moving to Europe in the fall for grad school. Lot of sweat and tears, but it works out. :) 


  14. I hope you learn to believe, without Matt's help, that you are good enough and you can do whatever it is you want. It is incredible that you have him as your support, though, don't get me wrong. Also, I can totally sympathize with the state of limbo--I'm graduating in June and moving on to an unknown adventure thereafter. Not knowing is both exciting and draining!

  15. Even in Instagram your outfits look great and I'm loving both of those color blocked shoes!  Good luck with whichever path you choose.  It is wonderful that you have a loving and supportive husband.  Take care!

  16. Good luck with your new adventure!  Trying new things can be so scary, I am going through that right now and your post has been fun to read for me because it encourages me to not be scared and to try it out.  Oh, and all of your shoes are too cute!

  17. I understand what you mean about limbo; I've experienced several times of waiting.  I'm going to pass along the advice of a wise woman -- take your vitamins, exercise, and get enough rest. :)
    It's a blessing that you have someone to support you in realizing your dreams. In time you will have the confidence and understanding to support other people in their journeys.  Whatever happens will be for the best, I'm sure! Looking forward to hearing more as things develop. :)

  18. I love your style!  What a cute blog.


  19. I know what you mean. We moved last summer, but we are staying with family until we save up enough to buy a place. It feels like we waited and waited to start this new adventure in a new place, but we're just in limbo for now.

    You'll get there!

  20. you are sooo cute!! i love all the colors and patterns you wear!!

  21. I just found your blog via twitter lol but it's very nice. I feel like I'm in that in between stage a lot with various aspects in life. Cute bracelet!

  22. Just found your blog via twitter. Hello! I love that bracelet. And I also feel like I'm in the in between stage a lot with various aspects in life. I guess that's what 20s are for...:-/
