A few months ago, I let time catch up to me. & just like how everyone knows you should never wake a sleeping baby, you never let time catch up to you.

But some things hinder you on your race against time. Work, study, sickness, children. The list goes on… & once time has caught up to you, things start piling up. Which is precisely what happened to me. I thought I had gotten so far ahead of time that I slacked off for a couple of weeks & now I’m laying under a pile of post it notes with never ending lists of things to do. That’s not true. It’s something closer to lying under a pile of junk food wrappers but you get the point.

Once time has flipped it’s finger at you, you need some serious help in the form of almost anything. For me, that’s been even more coffee than I usually drink, wearing a watch (& by the way, how awesome is my JORD wood watch?) instead of being on my phone all the time, actually putting my phone down away from where I’m working & simple outfits that require minimal brain processes like this one from Glue Store which, by the way has some great women’s & denim staples. Something I’ve been relying on heavily for the past few weeks. Something else I’ve been relying on heavily is my seven year old son & with the help of my little photographer who took these photos for me, I’ll be back on top of things in no time.*

P.S. Don’t forget to enter the JORD watch giveaway!

*But don’t quote me on that.

  • Beautiful watch! And I like how you integrate it into a text about life itself. It’s so true, life always gets faster and faster. So even more important for us, to take some time for ourselves from time to time. I can totally relate to that! And I find it even more impressing how you are running life, being a great mom for your child and doing this blog. That’s a true inspiration for me!

    Much love <3

  • yes so true, being on my phone too much can do serious damage to my productivity! Like I always say, time is the one thing you can never get back. Love the beautiful wood detail on your watch as well. I have missed so many of your posts and have so much to catch up on! you’re looking gorgeous as always.

  • I think I’ve said it before, but I really love the way you layout your blog posts – very editorial. I love this watch paired with the simple white shirt!

    I love how classy you look here! You’ve represented the brand beautiful with this sleek, minimalist look. I totally agree that the older you get, the more time seems to be fleeting. There never seems to be enough time in the day because I think we gradually commit ourselves to more and more things. Sometimes it’s good to take a step back and evaluate what is most important and put your attention towards that <3

  • I think I have those exact same shorts! 😀 I don’t look quite so effortlessly cool in mine though, haha!

    I know what you mean – I took some time to just relax and do nothing over Christmas and now I feel I’m constantly playing catch up. Can’t believe January is nearly over already!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you 🙂

  • Ive had a few moments where time has caught up to me and it’s no fun at all. It also feels so much harder to manage as one “ages”

    Jord watches are beautiful. Love this piece.

  • Kathlynn

    I’m digging the sandals in this look! Do you have your closet on Glamoutfit app? I want to follow you. I’m so curious what you have in your closet.

  • Ooh cool watches! I like that you paired it with a simple (but so pretty!) outfit!

  • Funny I was thinking about time just a few moments ago, hahah, how it slips by so easily. And look, we’re nearing the end of January. I forgot how beautiful those eyes of yours are, Shannon! Well, hello eyeballs, it’s been a while since I last saw that staring from the screen, hehe. It’s amazing that you can juggle everything with your little one to spoil too, you are one super momma! About watches though, I don’t wear them anymore. The last was a digital Casio watch I had like a gazillion years ago, it was a sentimental piece and I was loyal to it until my mind associated it with anxiety, lol. Maybe this year will be a year for watches for me, I’m unsure, but dang that JORD watch is a beauty. <3 xo
