Today's Outfit - 10/20

“She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks like a little girl.”

~ Bob Dylan

To be a woman is to be like a rosebud that slowly, over time, unfolds into what it is becoming. Being a woman is becoming! We start a journey as girls and turn into young women, then change again in our thirties or so, but we don’t stop there. As the age of 50 approaches another more powerful metamorphosis takes place. And each one of these changes brings us closer to the woman we truly are, and stretches us into areas we never imagined we would struggle with. It also gives us victories and an interior satisfaction we never dreamt possible.

A woman is a human being that has depths unknown, even to herself. Her heart is a multi layered ocean of secrets; she holds within her feelings about love, faith, children, friends, and never even indicates the depth of those feelings to those around her because of her busy life. I view woman as Universe’s most complex and beautiful creation, meant to not compete with man, but complement him in ways that fulfill both and bring a sense of balance to a world not ready for her depth and feminine power.

  9. Your beautiful post makes me think of one of my favorite Anais Nin quotes:"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
    Through the decades the layers peel away revealing our most authentic and essential self--becoming takes time.

    Lovely outfit too!

  10. I like this post. The blouse reminds me of the sentiment, somehow.

  11. I love your combination of colours: it"s so fancy. I need a belt, the one from the photo is falling all the time now and I can't find the same for my new size :(
