Different Tone: Careers

Temporary change of tone for the blog. I'm too stressed about life choices to focus on a fashion blog right now. I'm not too sure how people do it. 
This might end up as random ramblings, as it is almost midnight, but I figure I need to place my thoughts somewhere.
My issue right now, mainly, is career choice. Law is my ideal - but only for logical reasons, and seems currently impossible. To me, it seems like an easy choice, something I would be good at and could accomplish (although even the latter seems difficult right now - can't even get myself to study for the LSATs), as well as be relatively content with my life - money, security, mentally challenging job. 
It also doesn't feel like enough. 
I'm not into the "believe it and you can achieve it" or "follow your heart" business. It doesn't seem practical. But a part of me can't help but think of the possibilities I miss out on life because of my strategic thinking. I can't get out of my head the fact that I'd be happier being something like a buyer for a clothing company, but how does one achieve something like that? Isn't that passion improbable? Unattainable? Sure, some can reach their dreams, but some don't. I feel like in all the usual cliche speeches people seem to forget the increasing homeless rate, how many people live on welfare, or that the divorce rate is upwards of 40%. Is that cold? Or simply rational? 
I suppose, when it comes down to it, following my dreams equals leaving my life. This city is too small for these aspirations. I'm just not sure I'm willing to make that sacrifice - leave my family, my love, my home. People complain too much about this city and don't seem to realize it's perfect.
There's also the problem that even my security blanket seems impossible right now (law). I'm not as smart as I once thought. 
And these are the things that panic me at night so much that I need to write them down, for anyone to see. To know I'm not alone in all this, I suppose, or even for a little advice. I'm just so rushed to begin my life, I feel like I'm running out of time and making all the wrong choices in the meantime. 
Ugh. Goodnight.

Zara online sale



Quick post (from my phone) to let you guys know Zara online is having a sale today! At least the Canada one is.
I personally bought the semi - push up jeans and the shopper bag (Celine look alike, anyone?). 
Will try to update with pictures of my buys later, but unfortunately I doubt it - I'm currently in a summer class and then straight to work! The class is over in a week and a half, so hopefully I will get some pretty outfit snaps up soon. For now, go snatch up some Zara goodies before they are all sold out!

MeandLex

A Pair and a Spare just posted a guest post by Me and Lex, and now all I can think of is, why am I studying for my LSAT's when I could be making badass necklaces? Why did I just find out about them? 
I mean, really...



You can be certain I'll be keeping an eye out for unique gems to DIY.
Back to the books I go, sigh..

Zara online

It's my mother's birthday today! Yay!
In other news, Zara opened their online shopping today (look how quickly I change topics, haha).
I'm drooling. Already ordered two tops... Wish I could order it all. I was smart, and before even beginning to look, set my "filter" to $100, that way it only shows everything $100 and below.

I'm already regretting not getting so many, ugh... but I can't spend all of my money on clothes! Right?...


Definitely sad I have no where to go, these shoes would've been killer. 


Perfect striped sweater, got it.




Regretting not getting this one.

And this one... Look at those sleeves!

Got this tee ;)

All in all, I'm so pleased with their collection. They have a ton of ethnic details, without it being over the top, and so easily wearable. I'm so glad they finally opened up their online shopping, as there is no Zara where  I live, and I never travel. However, I can see how this site will quickly be my downfall. Not only are all the clothes amazing, the outfits on the website are amazing inspiration, and I can see myself flipping through without even the intent of shopping, and ending up buying things. I limited myself to only two items this time, as I have some stuff on the way from Urban Outfitters and I bought a new purse from Aldo as well.
Sorry I have not been uploading, school is keeping me quite busy, but hopefully in the summer my time will open up a bit.
Ps - for Canadians, free standard shipping for when you spend $50+! Which obviously, in Zara, you most likely will. Usually you have to spend $100 or even $150! (Wow can you tell how pumped I am about this site??!)

Tell me, have you guys checked out the Zara website yet?
