On the train to my baby brother’s graduation, I was having a very interesting conversation with my other younger brother about facing difficulties in life. I was telling him how I didn’t mind challenges and difficult times coming my way. In fact, I was grateful for them. The reason being that each time I find myself in a place of difficulty, I always feel very humbled and grounded. It’s almost like a gentle reminder not to forget where I’ve come from even though I’ve come a long way from there. It is the perfect antidote to arrogance. I cherish the experience that comes with those moments cause life isn’t perfect, and if I can learn a thing or two at times like that, I say take me back to my roots.
In the spirit of remembering where I’ve come from, this is a collaboration with L’aviye showing a couple of ways to style this lovely print skirt.
