Photos by Mark Griffin Champion
I pinned this image close to a year ago. Sometimes when I pin outfits they feel like a reach. Like I will never look as cool as the girl in the photo or that it’s an outfit that I have no chance of putting together in the near future.
But still…I pin on.
They’re just fashion images after all , so I let them go pretty easily. And it’s fun to daydream that I might one day be that girl in the photo. I don’t spend every moment of every day obsessing about how I’m going to put that outfit together though.
Either that says I don’t really care that much or it signals to me there’s a certain amount of chill I have with seemingly unimportant desires. Boy do I wish I could apply that same chill to the important stuff!
When I compare the OG inspi photo to this outfit post, it’s not far off.
That gives me a certain amount of satisfaction. And a feeling that things will work out. That eventually I will come within close proximity of all the things I desire. Even if, today, they feel like a reach.
