How to Cope With Things Beyond Our Control

How to Cope with Things Beyond Our Control (1)

One of the greatest struggles many of us deal with on a daily basis is how to let go of things we are unable to control. We’ve often been taught that letting go of control goes directly against our modernized, industrialized way of living — after all, we always strive to remain the architects of our destiny. That’s what I learned growing up from teachers, magazines, songs, movies and so on, at least. My DNA simply did not allow things to merely happen on their own, and I had never been one to sit back and passively let go of control in the first place. Over the years, however, my perspective has significantly shifted (for the better). I’ve learned that a great deal of the control we believe we don’t have over our lives is nothing but an illusion.

Open Back | Double Denim

DSC05536There’s something about the double-denim trend that goes against everything we’ve heard about properly putting together an outfit. It’s probably thanks to Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears circa 2001, when they wore an infamous head-to-toe denim look that was everything but hot (WHATEV, they’re both the hottest even if they were in a potato sack.)

Today, I’m showing off an updated, modern take on the double denim look, complete with an open back. Cause it’s all about that party in the back, am I right or am I right?
