Crop Top- PRIMARK | Maxi Skirt- PRIMARK | Earrings | PRIMARK | Necklace- STRADIVARIUS | Chunky Trainers - River Island
Hi all and welcome back to another week of Expression Through Style. Hope we are all ready to take on this new week.
Though we've had a couple of rainy days summer is still shinning on here in the UK and I am so here for it!!
This week I have for you a summer vibe inspired look especially with the bright orange and I don't think I've styled a maxi skirt on my blog before so wanted to show you something new.
If you want to show a little skin this summer but still keep it tasteful- Pair a crop top with some high waisted trousers, shorts or in this case skirt.
Today I also want to touch on the subject of Happiness, I am sure we have all seen the quote floating around social media "do what makes you happy". I'm going to have to disagree with that statement because happiness is so over rated and part of growing up and being mature or being an adult is realising that sometimes you have to do what makes you unhappy as a means to an end.
Waking up at 6 /6:30am every day does not make me happy but in order to pay rent and keep food on my table I have to do it. Instead of happiness choose joy whats the difference ? Well I think of joy as a state of being and happiness as an emotion that flows out of being joyful. Think of it this way you can be joyful and not happy.
Others have said that joy is cultivated internally whereas happiness is dependent on external factors.
Joy is based on a heart of gratitude for the good things and the not so good things. So instead of doing what makes you happy, I challenge you to do what brings you joy.
That is all I have for you today, thanks again for joining me. Let me know in the comments what you think of this look, and remember to do what brings you joy.
