Vienna Waits For You


If, in some sort of absurd life or death situation in which someone held a gun up to my head and forced me to choose my favorite Billy Joel song, I would probably say Vienna. It's one of those songs that always kind of makes me chill out and get a handle on myself and what's going on in my life. I've been listening to the song a lot lately (and singing along to it dramatically while driving to work) just because I'm feeling this weird combination of overwhelmed and underwhelmed. I'm overwhelmed in the sense of school, and subsequently the decisions I have to make, as well as a few changes that have recently entered my life (nothing crazy, I'm just supercrazy sensitive and easily affected by little changes), and I'm kind of underwhelmed in the fact that I don't feel like I'm doing and accomplishing enough. It's an awkward combination that sort of negates itself and doesn't make sense, and while it's sort of left me in this static cloud of befuddlement, it's also got me hopeful and excited about pushing forward and finding my own way about things. And a good song to remind me that I'm capable, but can only do so much right now, is always helpful.

I don't know that I can figure out an effective segue from Billy Joel to this outfit. I felt like Billy Joel in this outfit? Not really. I felt like I should wear this outfit in Vienna? Probably not. So let's just say that I like this outfit, and I like Billy Joel, and that should be good enough.

    I love how a certain song can just make you feel good especially when your life is a little messy. I TOTALLY understand the underwhelmed/overwhelmed feeling! That's how I've been feeling as of late too. I think for me it's because I'm in this weird transition period of waiting to find out if I got into grad school or not, but I'm still in my daily grind of working everyday and going to school. Hopefully the both of us get out of this funk we're in! You lovely as always my dear! I am in love with your booooooots!

  2. Love this look so much! You look adorable!

  3. That little purse is the cutest thing ever! And I can totally relate about feeling overwhelmed and underwhelmed at the same time. I feel like this school year has been made up of those feelings! Egads

  4. This is very Billy Joel indeed! Ah! How I missed you, but I feel that I am always up to date on your life since I follow almost every other account you have, hahaha. Kind of stalkerish of me, right? But you're just a really great person. Don't forget that :)


  5. loving those sunnies and the color combo all up in this outfitttt

  6. I feel the Billy Joel in the outfit. I feel it. I bet you want to go and start a fire and then say that we didn't start it, am I right? /really bad pun

    But yeah. ;D Totally cute. I love those booooooties!

  7. It may be cliche to say, but Piano Man will always be my favorite song from Billy Joel. I'm not dissing his other music (he's the most repeated artist in my cd player!) but that one stands out to me the most. But I totally understand your song choosing as it has a personal meaning to it.
    I'm not so sure I could see Billy wearing that skirt, the jacket yes, but definitely not the skirt. ;)
    Haha, but really I think the outfit is very you and very adorable!


Thank you so, so much for taking some time to comment on my blog!
