It's Day and Night



Since I had so much fun with the last post, I thought I would do the same. Here, I've taken a black-white floral print poofy skirt and used it for two occasions. Well the title is as self-evident as it gets... For the daytime look, I made sure to use bright colors for my bag and top. A tight-fitting T-shirt and black cut-off tights are the perfect way to make any outfit more casual and chic. For the nighttime look below, I opted for a loose glittery beige top and gold bag to match. The skirt's pattern, though floral is modern and versatile, allowing for two looks in one day.



To end this post, I thought I would bring up something that came to my attention yesterday while watching BBC. Not sure if many of you know this, but I was surprised to find out that 8 days ago, we celebrated Peace Day.

In 1999, Jeremy Gilly conceived of a day in the year, where all conflict and bloodshed would cease. Admittedly, while watching the documentary that followed Gilley's journey, hundreds of reasons for his potential failure were crossing my mind. Could it actually be possible? It's been 10 years since he embarked on his goal. Since then, the UN passed a resolution to mark 21st September as the official day for peace and leaders worldwide made their pledges to uphold this day. Most notably, in 2007, in Afghanistan, (one of, if not the most volatile country on earth) tribal leaders, local teachers and warlords in cooperation with the UN and WHO, agreed on a temporary ceasefire allowing 1.4 million children to be given life-saving polio vaccinations.


More so than compelling you to take a stand, Gilley's documentary at least asks us to question the point of skepticism, when optimism can actually affect change.
