Spring. The introduction to the best time of the year. Where the sun is shining longer, people are smiling and everything just feels better. In my last post I talked about the “must have trends for Spring”. This outfit features a few that I mentioned; red, mom jeans, and statement tops. The variety the “multi-position top” aka three shirts in one, brings the best of “three worlds” in one. An over sized top or off the shoulder top like this one, is so effortless it can spruce up a casual outfit like the one pictured or it can bring balance to a more done up outfit. 

 The “multi-positioning” of the shirt segue’s perfectly into a topic that has been on my mind lately. Recently I watched a video that recommended a book on focusing on one thing at a time. The book was based on how many people are worried about being multifaceted all the while not getting much done because they aren’t give their best to one thing.  In the video the saying “if you chase two rabbits, you won’t catch either one” was mentioned. As a busy body this stuck out to me. I am sure many people can relate to this. I am always doing more than one thing at once and I’m also a perfectionist. As you can imagine this can be stressful but when I am not juggling multiple things I feel unproductive and I have to figure out a way to occupy my time.

As intrigued as I was about the book, I found myself trying to place myself in a box that I couldn’t fit in. I tried to place myself into this concept by trying to convince myself that this is what I needed to do to be successful. But a little voice continuously repeated the exact opposite, “but what about ___ and this ____”.  I quickly figured out that for my personality juggling multiple thing is how I function. How does this tie into the shirt? Depending on the look that I am going for, the three in one shirt can work. However, more organization and focus on my part is a necessity for everything to flourish, which is a completely different conversation, for another time. Moral of the story is, if you can focus, you can do it. Where is your focus? How strong is your focus? Can you focus? Find your focus. Just as everyone has different ways of coping or different ways of learning, people also have different ways of focusing and strategizing. This all depends on your end goal, “the look you are going for”.
