i don't want to be alone, i want to be left alone.

I've been wanting to wear my denim pinafore without tights for quite some time, so as it was pretty darn warm on Sunday I rushed home from work to make the most of the setting sunshine. The pinafore is rather short on me, but I thought I may as well embrace gettin' my legs out by teaming it with my new pair of heels, bought for me as an early birthday present by my lovely father. I've been lookin' for the perfect 'everyday' heeled boots for quite a while, and even for someone who finds heels ridiculously hard to walk in at times, these are proving to be pretty darn comfortable!
I have to say, I've been feeling very happy and at ease over the last couple of days. I'm not entirely sure what's changed, but I'm just feelin' ever so content. I realize that I've been isolating myself from certain aspects of my life a little, which I understand that some my find a little selfish, but more and more I've realized that searching for your own happiness isn't being selfish - sometimes you've just got to put yourself first, no matter what. Audrey Hepburn once said 'I don't want to be alone, I want to be left alone', and that quote is very apt for my current state of mind. I just want to enjoy my own happiness for a while, because I know that it could leave me just as unexpectedly as I found it. Love, Jazmine.

  5. I couldnt agree more, sometimes trying to put yourself first makes you feel far happier. Often when i try to put others first its thrown back at me and i regret it.
    Ps ive just discovered your blog and i find it once of the most insiprational fashion blogs that ive ever come across :)

  6. You look so beautiful in this post Jaz, the lighting is stunning and I adore your denim dress. And those shoes! I completely agree with/could take some extra advice from the latter half of your blog post, I'd been feeling so content with everything up until a few weeks ago and could probably benefit from putting myself first a little, worrying less and trying a little harder. Hmm. xx

  9. You look absolutely beautiful Jazmine. You stunner you. I'm glad you're feeling content. I think we all go through bouts of feeling a bit lost and confused which is totally normal (I often feel like this sometimes!) but then you realise that it's ok to feel like that because life is so unpredictable! Big love to ya! xx

  19. The pursuit of happiness is a mysterious one, I'm really glad you are feeling more content. You beauty xxx

  20. I love your pinafore dress, I'm looking for one, too ! You always look so lovely.

    I understand what you mean : sometimes you put too much of yourself to satisfy people around you, and you forget your own happiness and to live your own dreams. As you said, it's not being "selfish" when you search your personal happiness, I always thought it's better to be good and in accord with yourself before trying to make other people happy. We have to take care of ourselves first, because nobody will do it for us !
    There is this quote in "Into the Wild", saying "Happiness is real only when shared". I agree with that too, that when you've found your own happiness, then you can use it to make the world better around you.

  23. Those boots are so nice - so boyish and cool and the heel looks like you could walk a mile without regretting it!

    Also, about being left alone - I've done this my whole life and it's actually really good to do. This is why I have a ridiculously small circle of good friends, but it's because they're the kind of friends that understand sometimes you just want to be left alone (and so do they). It's not that you don't care about people but sometimes you only have so much energy and happiness to spread around - it's better to make sure you're getting enough and then the chosen few.
