Just Do It, in a Mini Dress and a Suede Jacket

Amanda Garrigus Mini Dress and a Suede Jacket

What’s stopping you? From doing what, you say? Everything. From picking up the phone to call that person you can’t get off your mind. From saying “yes” to the invitation. From eating the doughnut or hopping on the plane. I know there’s work, and family, and money, and commitments, and they all get in the way, but that’s not what I mean. Maybe I’m projecting here (it’s a skill I’ve honed over the last many years of my life and I’m pretty good at it), but I’d venture to guess that most of us aren’t doing something we really want to do because we think we can’t, or shouldn’t, or because maybe someone will think it’s foolish. Well let me remove your burden and free you from the chains that hold you back from the pursuit of your dreams. Whatever you do, whatever you choose, whether sitting on the couch or jetting off to Mexico, someone is going to applaud and someone is going to jeer. So I figure you may as well choose the path that makes you happiest. Easier said than done. But worth doing nonetheless. Huh? The outfit I’m wearing? Oh, right, it’s a Mango dress, a Creative Recreation boot and a jacket from Forever 21. Now quit stalling and pick up the phone, start packing, start writing, begin planning… then please, tell me all about it.

With love,

  1. This post echoed my thoughts entirely, albeit in a much more positive, encouraging way than my own inner monologue. 🙂 I thank you for your words, and for taking the time to write them down. I love your blog! The clothes are fantastic, but even more so for the kindness that you speak with. Really helps a girl out!
