I love items from SheInside - pretty and in style all the time. The name of the store is also nice, applicable to what my inner sentiments are lately - I wish some people would just know the "she" inside me and not what other people paint of me. I guess some of you can relate ...
Have you been in those situations wherein there are people who try to put you down no matter what you do. They keep on dragging you to misery despite the fact that you owe them nothing; nor you did them any harm yet they have this perceived notion of harm you did so they constantly taint you negatively. And regardless of how hard you try to stay positive, it seems they're "winning" and all you have worked hard for ... is lost ...

I've been fighting this battle lately. As my last outfit post showed; yes, I've been trying really hard as well. It p|sses me off but I'm at a point wherein it's a losing battle. There's that barrier I cannot topple down, nor do I want to topple down. Somehow, that wall might be meant to stay and all I could do is let it be ... the wall will be there for sure and maybe only a natural calamity can break it. I don't want to exert all my life and effort in cracking it ....
Dressing up in nude / beige / natural / earth colors is fun. It's not too-hard to mix and match. The first thing that comes to mind is to pair it with black so that's what I did with this outfit. Several shades of neutral tones with black. And as always, I just go with it without makeup on - just my pale face to make it more natural looking. Isn't it best to go nude? I mean, not to get naked but in its essence - nude also signifies the naked truth. Just be transparent and have nothing to hide. That's way better!
I paired this look with simple accessories. The bag was already reflective of the girlie me with the ribbon accent and charms. I didn't want to over-accessorize the "simple" look I wanted to achieve. It was a casual day at work that time so this look should do. And I just realized, all the stuff in these photos were gifts! (^_^) The heart charm bracelet was a gift from a friend the previous year. The bag was a birthday gift to me from a colleague and mentor just last year. And that watch was my gift for myself hohoho~ I guess despite the down moments and sadness, these stuff somewhat make me smile - as there are still people who cherish the real me and bring happiness amidst troubles.
At times, I look down; think; I just want to escape. But no, I rethink and tell myself, I rather not. I should fight a good fight and I'd rather die fighting. There's really no need to fight the battle heads on ... just continue working and doing your best. And prayers will help. The uncontrollable forces will be there ... and there's no need anymore to try to fight them. It's a waste of time of energy. It's useless. Just continue to be yourself ... be myself ... and being real and true to your self is all that matters.
So at the end of the day, everyday, regardless of how hard it is ... flash a smile. It does wonders! At the very least, it keeps me sane. And I look back and think ... there are still those people I can consider as "real" and "not fake" ones building walls ... there are those who are still interested in knowing the "she" inside me, the real me and now what has been tainted; hardly painted by and on the walls ...
