Blurring the Seasons

"I have the courage to make positive changes in my life."

Pastels, florals, a straw bag, a wool fedora... what season is it anyway? 

I was listening to a Hidden Brain podcast about making decisions recently, and one of the things which stuck in my head was that the hardest part of making a decision is making it. Once you've made an irrevocable decision, your brain will do everything in it's power to convince you that you've chosen correctly, and that your current outcome is the best. I hope that is right, though I suppose if it isn't, the next episode in my queue is about regrets

  1. I love the light blue of that blouse, goes so nicely with the jeans!!
    And you know, I never thought about it that way but it's so true! Just like when we decide to buy clothes we don't need, our brain justifies it, hah. It does the same for everything else we just don't notice as much

  2. At this time of year, it can be hard to know what season it is - we just had our hottest day of the year, 33 degrees celcius, on Tuesday, and by yesterday the temperature had dropped twelve degrees. In some ways it's kind of nice, because we can just wear whatever feels right. And this top, bag, mules combination feels very right to me. As for decisions, I feel like I either know exactly what I want and have no trouble make them or have no idea what I want and agonise forever. There seems to be no in between. I will say, though, that in the end, I've made relatively few decisions I regret... at least in the long term ;)

  3. That podcast sounds really interesting - and the piece about the decision making process and how we then relate to our decisions strikes me as really apt. I definitely convince myself, after the fact, that a decision I've made is the right one...I feel like we'd all go a little batty and be living in a state of near constant regret if our brains didn't do that, right?

  5. I definitely justify every decision I make, but that is the easy part. Love the beautiful top you have on! The ruffles on the sleeves are beautiful!

  13. I'm such an indecisive person, making decisions is tough for me, I like to get advice before making big decisions. Means it can take me a while sometimes haha!

    I love your floral blouse, I had my eye on a very similar piece during my no-shop challenge and I was saad when it sold out and I couldn't buy it after the challenge was over. I keep seeing similar pieces around and so I'm hoping I'll maybe find the top I liked on ebay or something!

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend :)
