Okay, I know.. what an odd intro from this post. But the thing is that, I am currently going to end my teenage years in few days. From thirteen all the way through nineteen, I feel a great gratitude towards Allāh SWT for giving me this experience to live until this time. Although number is just a symbolic matter, I can actually come into a realization that number does give the warning. Time is one of the simplest measurement for us to be more aware of our own beings as a human being. In syā Allāh, if Allāh permits, I also will turn 20 this month, which means.. it's the first time for me to; say goodbye to my teenage years; become 'berkepala dua', as Indonesians would say (two-headed—which means your age is started with the number 2, and followed by another number—and this year, I'm starting it with a zero!, in syā Allāh); to get new experiences outside this continent (in syā Allāh); and many more. As time is unstoppable, we are also have to keep on 'moving' in order to keep living. Being older and older is a bliss that we have to counterweigh by being more and more responsible.

Outfit of the Day
Gray long sleeves shirt + Gray thrifted maxi skirt + Lilac chiffon blazer from an online shop + Light brown pashmina + Lace flats shoes from Krisna, Bali + Black backpack
I like to mix a maxi skirt with the top based on its colour. I usually pair this gray skirt with shirts that have the same palette with the skirt. So then, it would appear like a maxi dress though they're just simply two pieces. I picked my long sleeves shirt because I'd like to put on a short-sleeved chiffon blazer to cover the shape of my body. And then, for the hijab, I picked this colour because I want to match it with my base colour flat shoes which is nude. For the pick of the bag, I picked this black bag in order to harmonize the black lace on my shoes.
