Midriff, Monochrome, and Midi

If you came to the Dorothy Perkins Indonesia Style Essentials event, you could tell from my presentation that among all ten Style Essentials items, my favorite was clear: the Midi! I think knee length skirts or dresses are classic and timeless, it looks neat and conservative yet intriguing at the same time. Not to mention, there is a wide selection of ensembles you can combine it with to get a perfect look for any occasion. Pensil or A-line, either way I think midi length is the best investment a woman can make in her closet.

These days I see a lot of people reminding themselves that they should stop over-thinking because it stresses them out. Truth be told, I am much of a deep thinker and over thinking is what I do with enjoyment. Over-thinking is not all bad, you know. It prevents you from making snappy and possibly regrettable decisions and it contributes significantly to the process of learning lessons out of your, or somebody else's experience. In fact, I owe much of who I am, how I am, and what I am like now to my habit of always overly thinking about everything. Maybe it is not the same for everyone, maybe I enjoy over-thinking because I am quite an introvert and over-thinking is an integral part of my being. But I think that over-thinking only stresses one out if one starts making it a thing (that over-thinking is causing them stress). So for those who cannot help but over think, like me, consider it an asset and you will begin to harvest good things therefrom. And for those who are on the other side, maybe stop making over thinking a thing and telling the world that it causes stress, because your readers may pick up the suggestion and get stressed out not purely due to over thinking but because of the suggestion they picked up from your words.

  6. I do agree with you, as long as the over-thinking doesn't make you an insecure individual. I think it's not bad at all.
