Silence Is A Virtue


My family finds it strange that I never, ever turn on the tv after they have left for work and school.
I don't put on music either.


I prefer complete silence in the house.


I didn't used to feel this way.
I used to play music as I milled around the house...now I just prefer quiet.


It's the same for me in the car.
I used to listen to cd's or my iPod or even a meditation cd for the days I knew road rage would strike on my commute.


Music has influenced so much in my life, yet I find that the only time I listen now is when I am cooking dinner and I throw on the old iPod or some Pandora.
And the TV is only watched when,
1. I can't fall asleep
2. House Hunters is on and I am going to bed (but I always miss the last house and the decision because I usually fall asleep!)
3. Jersey Shore or the Kardashians are on...what can I say...after being alone with my thoughts I need some comic relief!

Do you prefer silence or do you need a little background noise?
Happy Weekending!

  3. silence. only since having kids...HA!

    I have enough noise all day long. The very few moments I get to myself need to be quiet. (Although I usually fall asleep, no matter what I am doing! So, if I need to get work done, or am driving, music has to be on to keep me awake!!)

  5. I agree with you on the silence at times. After being at work all day (i work on a trading floor) it is nice to find some peace and quiet as well!

  11. I think you are regrouping, resetting, and reanalyzing, and it makes perfect sense. I also think you should use your vintage knowledge and scooping skills in your next endeavor. Maybe an online vintage shop, like on etsy? There seem to be a few, but nothing at decent price ranges with the quality I’ve seen you sniff out.

  14. Lovely outfit! I prefer silence, always.

  15. Indeed! There are really times in our lives that we prefer to be silent for a while and reflect the things that happened and are happening in our lives.

    You look great with your outfit. The color of your top is vibrant and it blended well with your sweater. The leopard clutch is also amazing.

    Much love from the SABO SKIRT girls!

  16. Hmm...I think I should try eliminating some of the white noise from my life. I typically have music going in the background when I get home, partly to drown out the sound of traffic from the street below. But I bet that I could relax and focus better if there were silence. Perhaps I should try installing some noise-reducing curtains to see if that helps.

    And your leopard clutch is so chic!

  17. I like background noise whether it's music or tv and not really watching though. Music is my life and lipstick too. The day I stop listening to music and stop wearing lipstick is the day something is really wrong with me. :) You look great btw. I need to start posting again. Feeling in a fashion rutt.
