WHF: SEA OF BLUE // 2013.06.19

WorldHausFashion Look: SEA OF BLUE // 2013.06.19

Looking back on the good old WORLD HAUS FASHION days really does put a smile on my face. Those really were the happy careless day; whenever someone told me that back then I didn’t believe them, but now, looking back, I think they may have been right to some extent.

Honestly though, all days are good if you make them; or at least try to look at them with a glass half full kind of viewpoint. Those WHF days were great because all I worried about was acing my classes, getting a few hours in at work, and planning a great vacation! Now, what’s great about these days is that I’m married, we own our very own home, and we have great stable careers.

These photos were taken in 2013 on a warm summer day. I’m pretty sure it was a Sunday, or maybe it seems like that because now I relate to Sundays as days I don’t work on, and we were going for a walk after dinner.

Looking back on my entire outfit; hair, clothes, shoes; I feel content with myself. This is something I would definitely still wear, and actually do. I still own all of these pieces and do wear them. I haven’t worn this set together like this, but I have worn the peices separately. I think these photos have brought back the inspiration to wear this outfit again soon – maybe once we have some nicer weather though.

Happy Flashback Friday!

Before I started THE P R E T T I E R LIFE, I had a blog called WORLD HAUS FASHION. I had this blog for about six years, and it’s main focus was all things FASHION. My regular posts consisted of my outfits – day to day style, while traveling, etc. I had such a great time with the blog, it really allowed me to grow and develop my style (and closet), and find my happiness through a hobby.

Once I started working full time, I found it harder and harder to post regularly, and spend enough time on a post to be satisfied with it. That is when I decided to stop, and just give myself some time off from blogging to focus on my career and personal life.

A few years later… I just couldnt sit there anymore; I had to write, had to post, there was just too much I wanted to share. The simple fact that I love writing and having a social outlet to share on, was enough reason for me to get back into the blogosphere.

Starting this blog, was like starting  a new chapter in my life – I still want to focus on FASHION, but there is so much more to my daily happiness these days! My focus has developed and grown since WHF, and I knew I could start a new blog to build on this.

The title really just happened, I had always had a saying that I’m all about the “prettier things in life”, so I figured, it would fit perfectly to what I wanted to accomplish with this new blog.

The Prettier Life IS about the Prettier Things in Life – of course, you may want to use a different word, other than  P R E T T Y, but that’s how I see things, and it works for me. In this day and age, it’s so important that we don’t get caught up in this fast paced lifestyle too much, and that we are stil able to take time to slow down and notice the wonders of this planet.

Although we might want to, we can’t all travel the world – thank goodness for those that can because they can share with us the beauty of this universe. We are able to make our everyday lives more special by reflecting and admiring whats around us.

Think about it, start noticing the “prettier things” around you, and tell me if you start smiling more!

Memories; one of the greatest things we can acquire in our lifetime. My greatest memories are created from traveling and sightseeing – the world is such a magnificent and magical place, with so many wonderful and unique places and things to see.

These photos were taken about three years ago in San Juan, Puerto Rico – it was one of the ports our cruise ship docked at. The city was absolutely beautiful – the architecture of the buildings were breathtaking, and the local environment were very welcoming. I would definitely like to go back one day.

My outfit for the day in San Juan – comfy and minimal, as it was very warm. I purchased these evergreen high waisted shorts from Primark in London, and the top from Aritzia (Talula brand). The classic Ray Bans also came out to play.

Happy #ThrowbackThursday

As I’ve mentioned before, prior to this blog, I had another blog called World Haus Fashion; this was my first blog, that I started in 2009, and was one of the best things I could have done for myself.

Not only was this a great experience for me, but it also taught me things along the way, about myself, my surroundings, and more! Now, practically everyone has a blog so it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but when I was first starting off we were all babies in the game.

Unfortunately, I was not able to continue working on my blog as much as I would have liked and with that I was less and less enganged with the community; just as others were finding out about these blogs and starting their own.

Although I wonder sometimes what my life would look like if I continued blogging instead of doing what I did,  I don’t regret the decisions I made. I believe everything happens for a reason, and I’ll stick to that.

I will be posting photos once in a while from my World Haus Fashion Days; I think that my style has changed a little bit; I’ve found a more uniform look which I tend to stickto most days, but overall; I still enjoy the having fun and experimenting with my outfits!

Happy Thursday!

img_0147I have been blogging for many years now – I wrote my first post back in 2009. Though I have not been very active lately, and may not publish all of my posts, I still like to consider myself a blogger. Well, it’s time to change that – I’m excited to be getting back into it. Even though this is a very busy time in my life, I just can’t sit still without a blog any longer.

Before I start posting new photos and styles, I’d like to look back on my earlier blogging years, for my blog World Haus Fashion. This was such a fun and exciting time in my life, but it also taught me many lessons – which I am grateful for. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
