daring to be great

i talked to a friend today…and we got to the topic of ‘just going the flow..’ this friend has a ‘go with the flow’ vibe..and doesn’t really make long term goals…when asked why he stayed with a company for a year, all he said was that he stayed just because…and he left because something happened that caused him not to attend work for quite some time…although i am most of the time a happy-go-lucky person and at times, just choose to go with the flow, i cannot stand not being in control of my life… my friend chooses to be mediocre..because if he aims high, he and the people around him have high expectations of him… but i have always chosen to be great… mediocrity for me is just choosing to not make the most out of your life…i have always believed that not trying and not taking risks is not living at all… but that’s just me. and that’s just my friend too.
ps. this is the very first time i’ve worn deep berry lipstick..saw it on my mom’s dresser and tried it out before i asked dad to take photos of me. yes, my dad takes my photos. *wink*

black blazer – linea italia
striped top – thrifted
skinny jeans – chillypapa
strappy heels – so fab!
dog tag – custom-made
rings – blue: props | howlite: dane’s giveaway
sunnies – thrifted

  1. Definitely need to wear that lipstick more – IT LOOKS SO GOOD ON YOU.

    And I'm kind of like you. I definitely HATE mediocrity; there's nothing fulfilling about it. Though I am pretty laid back, I don't get stressed easily.. but still, I like to have expectations of my self! Keeps you motivated, no?

    Thanks so much for stopping by!


  2. Love the laid back chic outfit! 😉 Can't believe your shoes are from So Fab. They're so pretty! Oooh and it's so cute that your dad takes your photos! 😉


  3. those shoes are killer! and i'm loving the custom-made dog tags 🙂
    and that berry lipstick is so gorgeous on you.

    oh! and your dad is so sweet to take your photos for you 🙂


  4. I love that shade of lipstick. Great look, The striped shirt is great and your dog tag is so cute!
    p.s. you're so lucky your dad will take your pictures. And he ACTUALLY takes good pics! =0


  5. you should wear the lipstick more often it looks fab on you 🙂 love the heels and how you wore military dogtags – totally adds edginess to the polished look!


  6. Cool shoes and dog tags. I'm minimally a “go with the flow” kind of person. A friend and I would laugh about how we “plan” time for breaks/freedom. In 10 years I hope to have acheived some goals and I don't think “going with the flow” will do it…


  7. i used to be satisfied lingering in mediocrity, but have recently chosen to step out of it and to take a bit of a risk. this post was most inspiring for me, a kind of validation — thank you!

    that berry lipstick looks fab on you, dear and your dad rocks!

    oh, and in response to your email the other day, i know tagalog because i'm PINAY. 🙂


  8. So Fab ang heels na yan? wow it really looks good. I love all the straps.

    I don't make long term plans but i am very much in control of my life.

    We can also have fun but at the same time be matured enough to handle it so we'll have direction.

  9. hi, i found your blog from Denise's blog. so glad to have found another woman with great style! i love how classic your outfit is (a striped top + blazer is my favorite combo btw ;)), and those heels are fabulous!


  10. oh! i forgot to mention, you're SO LUCKY to not have to get your wisdom teeth removed. i'm so insanely jealous.

    if i don't, it'll push most of my teeth forward 😦
