Double Slit Maxi

“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” - Steve Jobs

It felt so good going home to Florida. I found this dress in my closet before I left. I got it from the thrift store in Florida before I even moved to NY 4 years ago. I've been looking at homes to buy. I've already spoke with the banks about mortgage loans. It's happening. I think my time in NY is up. My gut keeps telling me to go back home and make memories with my family. My career allows me to work mostly from home, thankfully. I figure I can travel when and where I need to and still invest my money into a home instead of throwing it all into rent each month. NY has definitely been good to me. My career picked up here, I fell in love here, I struggled and excelled here. I'm ready to go back to what's really home, which is where my family is. Career and work are extremely important to me but I don't want years to pass and regret consuming my 20s with nothing but work and it be too late to make memories with the people who truly matter. I'm excited to find my untouchable hustle again that got me here in th first place. I feel like I lost it while being in NY believe it or not. I'm inspired more by where I came from. It reminds me how much I've grown, how hard I had to work to get here, and allows me to not be so hard on myself because I sometimes feel like I'm not doing enough. All around NY has been amazing to me but I want to start owning and investing in myself. I'm excited for this new life move.

  8. Nadia-
    I have been reading your blog for quite a while now, and I have yet to leave a comment. Not only do I admire style but your courage and fearlessness is an inspiration to all women. I am a few years older than you however, your insights on life and how you view the world inspires me on so many levels. I'm so excited to see a beautiful young woman like yourself and one of my peers making such incredible decisions for herself. Keep doing what you're doing!
