Shirt: Obey Clothing | Jacket: Vince Camuto (on sale!) | Skirt: ASTR (similar) | Boots: Asos (similar)| Belt: Asos (similar here and here)

The other day, I uploaded a photo from this set onto Instagram and captioned it on a whim “Your passions are your life’s callings. Obey them & you’ll be happier every day,” based off the logo tee that I managed to snag from a friend who was cleaning out her closet. It was a thought in passing, but something about the idea of pursuing passion nags constantly at the back of my mind. Growing up in a stereotypical Asian household, it was always more about burying your passions and pursuing something with a safety net, a near-guarantee of a financially-stable career and comfortable lifestyle for the future.

The black sheep of the family, I wandered through most of my life in confusion of what I really wanted to do. Bolstered by wanderlust and intrigue towards creative craft but weighed down by traditional expectations and disapproving remarks, I eventually learned to tune out the latter as white noise and listen to myself. A lot of time was wasted in this long process, but ten years from now, I would like to be able to say that I’m living the life I’ve wanted and not the life I settled for. Explore. Obey your passion. Listen to what moves you, and follow that to no end. When you realize that life isn’t always about materialistic goods and you take that leap of faith in yourself, you will be a lot happier.
