OOTD :: of Thoughtful Thursday and friendship





Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.

    Love the kimono and the graphic tee! I really need to get me some graphic tees. The monochrome palette really works here.

    I will give friends advice, but I’ll also support them in their “experimentation” in life. Like Anne, I’ve made a few leaps that didn’t work out, but at least I tried, and learned. I think the quote is perfect!

  2. I’m really bad at the allowing people to hurt themselves part. That tee is much cuter on you than on ON’s website. 😉

      Awww, thanks! I’m currently obsessing over travel graphic tees and I ended up buying the sketched ones from ON too. I just washed them and, wouldn’t you know, they did the ON shrinky-shrinky thing on me. I hope hanging them to dry will stretch them out again. :/

      This may make me sound like a sociopath, but I take a very laissez-faire approach to my friends’ life decisions. I never tell people to stop (Unless it’s overtly harmful to them or to others, of course. Like lighting oneself on fire) because we learn from mistakes and I love learning from other people’s mistakes. ;p

    Wonderful quote, and topper. Now I have to hear more about Anne’s Indy adventure . . . xox

    OMG, that print! Would love to have the leisure to replicate it.

    Great quote as well. Quite a few friends (and my mom as well — yay mom) kept quiet when I turned 40, was thinking with, um, not my brain, and moved to Indianapolis for 6 weeks with someone totally inappropriate. What a crazy mid-life crisis THAT was!

    • mtsedwards says:

      I’m assuming you’re talking about the kimono’s print, right? ;p SF may have stolen my heart but the GG Bridge is pretty iconic and perhaps too overplayed to be translated into a print?

      And yes, I second Patti. Do tell about your Indy trip. If it’s not too personal, of course.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
