|sweater: H&M (so old)// skirt: c/o eshakti// heels: gifted// necklace and bracelet: thrifted|
Confession, when this skirt first came out of the package Ben called it a parachute. By below the knee they clearly meant halfway down my calf (so note, when you go order a skirt or dress). But, its amazing what a great pair of stilettos can do. I’m loving the bold print, the high waist and the lovely pleats. I’m hoping it stays in style for the next ten years, because I’m wearing it anyways. This is something I’d consider sporting for a day date Valentine’s weekend, if I ever properly learn how to walk in heels this tall (tips anyone??).
On another note, I’m reading this book and came across a quote that, while may still describe some relationships today, doesn’t seem to be the norm. Do you agree? Do you think this is a good thing?
Up to now your first question has naturally been “what is best for me?–how to use your time, money, school, work, whatever. But after your wedding, the biggest question is “what is best for our marriage, our family?” And that is a very hard thing to learn. Hafen, Covenant Hearts (pg 73).
Is it still important to ask the questions, “What is best for me?” in a marriage? Does this mentality result in seeking happiness by walking away from a marriage instead of fixing it? What is the balance between what’s best for the individual and what’s best for the relationship? I’d love to hear your take on this (married, unmarried, whatever).
