Walking on the rooftops.

September 14, 2014

Sometimes you need to bite the bullet and give something new a go. Maybe that's taking a slightly different route to your usual walk, or listen to music on shuffle mode or try something other than your usual drink when you go to your favourite coffee shop. Sometimes all you need is a slightly different perspective and you'll see something in a whole new light.
For me, recently I've been trying to step out of my well-trodden path and say 'yes' to new things a little more. Quite often it's just the simple things, such as ordering a new drink instead of my usual mini hot chocolate in coffee shops, and have since discovered that I love Peach Iced Tea and Chai Lattes. This week, I gave an old pair of jeans a new lease of life by distressing the knees, pockets and hems. For a while now I've also been eyeing up some black ankle books that look like they've been lived in for ages, such as these from Free People. After scrolling endlessly through the Free People blog, I remembered I had a pair of my old riding boots. With a bit of polish they fit the bill perfectly, and have the well-worn look of a vintage pair!

    1. Thank you so much Lydia! I agree, think there's quite a few things I've missed out on, but hopefully learning from it now so there's more opportunity in the future too :)
