White Noise

Distraction has been proven as a successful strategy. Do you find that you are distracted easily and or frequently? I tend to get distracted more than I care to admit, or prefer. There are so many distractions, which can make it difficult to remain focused on personal objectives.
To avoid distraction, we often use white noise, which equates to adding in more distraction to a scenario - in essence, to drown out the unwelcome distraction. Confusing right?!  A simple example might be: Turning up the TV to drown out your neighbor’s music and or the sound of a TV in another room. In effect, you add in noise to trump out the noise that you do not want to hear. Have you ever done that? 
Unfortunately, utilizing white noise just does not work for me! =(
When I find myself excessively distracted by uninvited elements and or people (I’m an introvert, read about that here), I typically feel inundated with way too much information . Adding additional white noise to the scenario seems to intensify the challenge, which in turn often leads to feeling overwhelmed and then… the inevitable end result: The state of irritation – LOL!
Life experience and awareness of who I am as an individual has taught me the value of knowing when to take a step back from unnecessary ”noise”. I use these frequent intervals to focus on myself, to examine my strengths, to analyze my weaknesses, and to sharpen my objectives.
Isn’t a vacation the BEST opportunity to press the “R E S E T” button?!?! While on holiday this time around I was able to re-direct my focus, shift away from the noise, and focus on the things that are truly important to me. I started an excellent book and seized opportunities to enjoy all of the sights and sounds around me. 
This white dress came into play for dinner plans. It was perfect for the extreme heat not only because it is white, but also 100% cotton = A double win!!!
I simply heart all white ensembles, see examples here, here, and here.  
However white can be paired with other colors just as easily. Think lilac, yellow, peach or blue =)
Over to you, how do you handle distractions? What is your favorite way to style white?

Until next time Style Lovers!

  1. Oh my Joi! You are absolutely working this dress. Love the silhouette on you. White is so beautiful, however I'm a klutz so I rarely wear it. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thanks Kishina! I got it last year, I love how crisp the white still is! Although I must say I've only worn/washed it a few times...

  3. White and turquoise is such a killer summer combo. I default to wearing white outfits with pink or red accents usually, but now I want to drag out an aqua sequined scarf I have. Your outfits often inspire me to go digging in my own closet and pair things up in inventive ways. :)

    1. Hmm, now you've given me an idea! I'd love to pair up white with a pastel pink! My favorite blogs truly inspire me to use what I have in unexpected ways - thank you!
