The Chase 4 Life is an eternal chase, I've learned that throughout the past few years. If you want something, you shouldn't wait for it to come to you (it could happen, of course, but it's a rare thing), no, you have to hunt it, you have to search for it and it's not supposed to be an easy road. I'm talking about chasing your dreams and accomplishing stuff, not easy things like going for a sandwich or something, haha.

I teamed up with Paruno for a couple of posts (catch another one here) featuring their newest collection of shoes for a couple of reasons: first of all, they're a Mexican brand that's actually good and affordable (you don't get many of those); in second place, I really like their shoes and; lastly, they have an amazing manifesto that resonates with me. Paruno defends that every single choice you've made so far it's crucial, that you need to understand who you are and unleash your true self to make the right decisions. Those will shape and prepare you for what's to come. Choose and become. 

I put a lot of thought into every outfit I choose. Clothes are a way of expressing yourself and giving a message to the world without having to say a word. And, believe it or not, that's what I was thinking while shooting these photos. Who you are and who you want to become... That's up to you, but it doesn't hurt to dress accordingly to that. I mean, we all need to do dress everyday, so, why not have some fun doing it? Why not choose the items that will help you become the person you want to be? In the end, aren't we all just chasing our dreams?

// La vida es una persecución eterna, he aprendido eso en los últimos años. Si quieres algo, no deberías esperar a que venga a ti (puede suceder, pero es un caso raro), no, tú tienes que cazarlo, tienes que buscarlo y no se supone que sea un camino fácil. Estoy hablando de perseguir nuestros sueños y lograr metas, no cosas fáciles como ir por un sandwich o algo así, jaja.

Hice alianza con Paruno para un par de posts (pueden ver el otro aquí) usando su más nueva colección de zapatos por un par de razones: primero, son una marca mexicana que es realmente buena y costeable (no hay muchas de esas); en segundo lugar, me gustan mucho sus zapatos y; por último, tienen un manifesto muy padre que encaja conmigo. Paruno defiende que cada una de las elecciones que has hecho hasta ahora es crucial, que necesitas entender quién eres y liberar tu verdadera personalidad para tomar las decisiones correctas. Esas te moldearán y prepararán para lo que viene en el futuro. Elegir y convertirse.

Pienso mucho en cada atuendo que elijo. La ropa es una forma de expresarte y dar un mensaje al mundo sin tener que decir una palabra. Y, créanlo o no, eso es lo que pensaba mientras tomaba estas fotos. Quién eres y quién quieres ser... Eso está en ti, pero no lastima vestirse de acuerdo a eso. Digo, tenemos que vestirnos todos los días, ¿por qué no divertirse en el proceso? ¿Por qué no elegir piezas que te ayudarán a convertirte en quien quieres ser? Al final del día, ¿no estamos todos persiguiendo nuestros sueños?
