There’s nothing more special than wearing something that has significant meaning to you, especially when it’s a message or statement that’s on display. While the quote engraved on this ring from Chocolate and Steel isn’t as obvious as it would read on a graphic tee, it’s a sweet reminder throughout the day. “The future depends on what you do today,” it reads. This is most definitely one of the philosophies I live by. I’ve always been a planner. And I believe where I am at now– in college majoring in fashion design at one of the top design schools in the world, interning at an amazing company, having my own styling business, and running this blog coming up on 6 years– is a result of the research I put in when I was barely a teenager, just now figuring out that this fashion thing could be a career. Every day since I’ve done something that will benefit my future career. It’s exciting to take a moment and see how far I’ve come, and then continue to work towards something even bigger and better.
Glancing at my finger these past few days has encouraged me to stay focused and productive and really make each day count.
