FLASHBACK FAVORITES

HERE ARE A FEW FLASH BACK STYLES I’VE WORN WITHIN THE YEAR. THEY ARE ALL PRETTY STYLISH YET VERY SIMPLE. IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH FOR STYLES TO BE OVER DONE AND DOESN’T TAKE MUCH MONEY TO BE STYLISH. I PLAN TO SWITCH MY STYLE UP A BIT WITHIN THE UPCOMING YEAR. YOU’LL JUST HAVE TO CONTINUE TO RIDE THE WAVES WITH ME ON MY FASHION JOURNEY. collage_20150320205537857_20150320205559755collage_20150321215044583collage_20150318220044574collage_20150125205223001collage_20150530235052303

C360_2015-11-24-18-25-27-686-1IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH TO MAKE LAYERS WORK. I WORE MY THRIFT STORE DENIM BUTTON DOWN SHIRT WITH MY THRIFT STORE BLACK SWEATSHIRT ON TOP FOR MY LAYERED LOOK. I WORE THESE WALMART CAMO JEGGINGS TO GIVE THE OUTFIT A BIT OF A POP. THE CAMEL FLAT BOOTIES JUST SEEMED APPROPRIATE WITH THE COLOR COORDINATION. YOU ALL KNOW I’M A SUCKER FOR HATS, SO YEAH IT WAS ONLY RIGHT TO ADD IT TO MY LOOK. WHY SPEND FORTUNES TO LOOK CUTE? I AM ABLE TO PULL OFF MANY TRENDY LOOKS WHILE MY BANK ACCOUNT CONTINUES TO SMILE AND SAY THANK YOU 😆C360_2015-11-24-16-52-18-501I COULDNT FIND MY LINT BRUSH HEHE!..(SHRUGS)C360_2015-11-24-16-53-50-953C360_2015-11-24-18-37-16-633

JUST A SPLASH

IMG_1809IMG_1816FullSizeRenderIMG_1819 KEEPING IT BASIC, WITH A SPLASH OF PIZAZZ. BLACK TIGHTS, BLACK HAT, WHITE BUTTON DOWN, GREY SWEATER, RED CLUTCH, RED LIPS, AND  BLACK BOOTIES WITH A HINT OF LEOPARD PRINT. (COOL HOW THAT ALL JUST KIND OF RHYMED HUH?) WHEN I THINK LEOPARD PRINT I AUTOMATICALLY ASSOCIATE THE COLOR RED. I FIGURED THE CALF LENGTH TIGHTS COULD HAVE GIVEN THE LOOK A DIFFERENT FEEL COMPARED TO THE FULL LENGTH. THEY DID EXACTLY THAT. THIS LOOK IS VERY SIMPLE AND EASILY ATTAINABLE. KEEP IT CUTE, AND COMFORTABLE DURING THIS FALL WAVE.

P.S. SHOP IN YOUR CLOSET AND SEE WHAT YOU CAN WORK WITH BEFORE GOING OUT BUYING NEW THINGS. I AM IN THE PROCESS OF PRACTICING THIS. SO FAR, SO GOOD.

PATIENCE

C360_2015-11-20-14-25-58-054SO THIS IS MY CURRENT SITUATION , SITTING AND WAITING. SINCE MY MIND IS FOREVER ON A MILLION I DECIDED TO SHARE MY CURRENT THOUGHT WITH YOU ALL, PATIENCE..HAVING PATIENCE HAS BEEN BEYOND BENEFICIAL TO MY LIFE BUT HAS NOT BEEN EASY. FROM MY FIRST CAR TO MY FIRST APARTMENT, TO GETTING A JOB, I ALWAYS SEEM TO HAVE TO PLAY THE WAITING GAME. AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE I DON’T MIND IT AS MUCH ANYMORE AFTER EXPERIENCING POSITIVE RESULTS, ONE AFTER ANOTHER. I’VE GONE FROM FRUSTRATED TO DOWN RIGHT WANTING TO GIVE UP AT TIMES. THANK GOD MY FAITH IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH. PATIENCE HAS ITS WAY OF TESTING US AND BASED ON OUR ACTIONS, WE ENCOUNTER THE RESULTS WE DESERVE. PATIENCE MUST BE PRACTICED. GIVE IT A TRY AND I AM ALMOST CERTAIN BLESSINGS WILL START TO COME YOUR WAY, FROM THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT. -GALATIANS 6:9 “LET US NOT BECOME WEARY DOING GOOD, FOR AT THE PROPER TIME WE WILL REAP A HARVEST IF WE DO NOT GIVE UP.” HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY PEOPLE 😚

 

 

TRENDING ON A THURSDAY

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE! HAVING A BLOG CAN BE A BIT DIFFICULT AT TIMES AS YOU ARE ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT YOUR NEXT POST, OR MAYBE THAT’S JUST ME. I GAVE UP ON THE LONG, HARD THINKING AND JUST DECIDED TO POST  A TREND  THAT I HAVE BECOME SMITTEN WITH: CHUNKY SWEATERS, DISTRESSED JEANS AND POINTED HEELS. I PLAN ON PUTTING THIS STYLE TOGETHER FOR MYSELF SOON ENOUGH, BUT IN THE MEAN TIME, THIS IS THE LOOK: SIMPLE, CUTE, AND DEFINITELY TRENDY.

BIG BAD BREAKFAST

20151114_10041720151114_100426so my good friend and I had plans on going to the gym this morning, we decided to feed our faces instead. Why waste a beautiful fall morning in the gym when you can be out enjoying good food on a good day with a friend? Rhetorical question 🙂 
20151114_10062320151114_10063120151114_100653-1She wasn’t ready! Unexpected pics are always my favorite 🙂 ..I’ve learned to embrace good days, good friendships, AND most importantly  good food. These are the last days ON the earth. There’s so much going on in the world. We must love our hardest, be more grateful than ever before, cherish and appreciate good moments, Big or small, and pray to God like our lives depend on it. 20151114_100035

the_art_of_conversation_by_rttmsdag-d32q8oc

Here is another one of my rambles, brace yourselves. I was reading an article on communication, 8 Tips for Communication by Sara Altschule, that I found pretty interesting. In today’s society the lack of communication is almost sickening, or maybe I am just old fashioned at the age of 28. I will admit, I am definitely a texter, but I also do not mind talking on the phone or having a normal face to face conversation. A while ago, a friend of mine and i wrote letters and SENT them to each other with updates on our lives instead of texting our life stories, in brief. We enjoyed the whole “pen pal” idea. imagine how stressed out everyone’s lives would be if they had to make a phone call as opposed to sending a text. the world would be in complete chaos, figuratively speaking.

relationships would probably last a lot longer these days if communication was the key. atlschule mentions this in the article. so my question to this, is where on earth can i find this key??? no where in particular of course and to be quite honest, I believe the key lies within us as individuals. we were not born mind readers. self expression is the key. expressing your thoughts and ideas without the assumption that others already know what you are thinking about. it happens much more often than we think, believe me. so there you have it. I have just unveiled where the key to communication is. try changing at least one of the relationships in your life with better communication. you just never know what can happen.

C360_2015-10-31-11-28-58-701Forgive me for the picture quality, as this picture was taken from my sister’s camera phone. I just HAD to post it though because I wanted you all to see how I wore these previous mentioned mule heels. They were pretty comfortable, but after standing in them for more than about two hours straight, you’ll probably find yourself searching for the nearest chair. I just happened to find this nude (looks off white in the pic, but I promise it was nude) dress at forever21, which matched perfectly with the peep toe portion of the shoe. I accessorized with a sequence gold clutch, a gold chain belt (you can barely see it, again, so sorry), and some gold bamboo earrings. Just enough gold not to take away from the gold studded portion on the top of the shoe. Simplicity at its finest! P.S. Thanks for understanding my picture quality struggle lol
