{proud to be} grown-up girly

i had many boyish phases, one that lasted all through pre-adolescent years, worried my mother plenty, and broke multiple jade bracelets she gave me.  the discovery of a feminine preference in fashion didn’t appear until my mid 20s, when my myriad insecurities subsided.  a full-on embrace of girly colors and silhouettes surfaced in my closet, with a few of those items in this post:
 
vintage cashmere sweater, Anthropologie skirt, Club Monaco bracelets, H&M belt, Aldo boots, DKNY satchel.


leaving you a weekend poem by Sonia Sanchez
 

Ballad

forgive me if i laugh
you are so sure of love
you are so young
and i too old to learn of love.

the rain exploding
in the air is love
the grass excreting her
green wax is love
and stones remembering
past steps is love,
but you. you are too young
for love
and i too old.

once. what does it matter
when or who, i knew
of love.
i fixed my body
under his and went
to sleep in love
all trace of me
was wiped away
forgive me if i smile
young heiress of a naked dream
you are so young
and i too old to learn of love.
