As I looked up in the mirror, I was instantly saddened by the ugly scar left by the pimple I had scratched off last week. When someone compliments how beautiful my name is – I laugh it off saying its the most common girl name in India. Why is that, we seem to focus more on the negative aspects of the things in our life. Why not feel proud of the dimple on the left cheek and ignore the mark on the right one? Why don’t I love the name which literally means love? We tend to worry about the one negative and take the many positives for granted. The more I think about it, I realize that we judge ourselves the most, more than the person across. If you are throwing yourself a pity party about something – crooked smile or that extra pound on your abs – its time to take one hard look at the mirror and see the good – because it’s there ! I hope when you read this, in some small way it helps you to believe that the one person you need to please, accept the most, judge not at all is YOU!
I wore this outfit to a recent cook-out we had with a couple of friends. I just love how the high-low skirt flutters in the wind.

I love what you wrote, Neha. It’s so true. We are our own worse critics and we need to cut ourselves some slack. I love the outfit, especially the tee and sandals. 🙂

Such a great post and message. I rarely post outfit photos b/c I’m so critical of my myself. Bad angle, wrinkled material, poor lighting, etc…. I’m going to try to be better about thinking less, posting more. Thanks for the inspiration!
BTW, those powder blue pumps are pretty perfect 🙂
Love love love the t-shirt! The skirt is a nice complement to the tee!
