Serving: Cherish the Day

Death is something that we all know will eventually happen, but it is always so unexpected! There’s no way to really “deal” with losing a loved one, you kinda just accept it. It does however, have a way of putting things into perspective. Or at least it should! It allows you to see the importance of the time spent on this earth and how short it really is. It is very important to love and cherish the people around you regularly! I believe that when this happens, it develops a deeper connection, so when they do transition they’re always with us and vice versa.  Because you just never know...  

Cute and comfy was on the agenda today! So tuxedo overalls, and comfy oxfords were my go-to. 

For a preppy vibe I added a white button up blouse. 

Hope you enjoy!

Serving: Church Style

A couple of days ago, I was having a conversation with one of my best friends and something he said struck me. He said “Krys, when it comes to love there are no absolutes”. After hearing him say that, it instantly made me realize how we often try to control people and how they love. Having expectations in relationships is cool, but we have to be very careful not to operate in a space of fear by putting unrealistic expectations on people, by dictating how they love us. We don’t even have control on how we love, let alone how anyone else loves! We try to create limitations to safeguard our hearts (so we think), in an attempt to avoid getting hurt, instead of learning people’s love languages. Love is a practice, not something that just happens. In taking time to cultivate relationships we also have to learn how people love and what it takes to love them. Remove the cookie cutter approach and listen and learn how to love. 

Now on to today’s look! Church and Style has always been a struggle for me. Reason being, I never want to conform to the typical “church style” but I still want to be appropriate. 

Today, in an attempt to stay warm and of course to be extremely fashionable, I paired some fun pieces with a simple black dress. 

When wearing all black, two things are a must, texture and color. Vinyl has been so much fun to play with this season!! This jacket has an 80’s vibe that I absolutely love! Coupled with a pair of thigh high boots in a fun color and my look was complete!!

Hope you enjoy!

Serving: Church Style

It’s the last 1st Sunday in 2017 and with everything that has happened this year and what’s going on now, I’m still believing for great things to happen before the end of the year! One of the most frustrating things in our Christian walk can be waiting on God. Year after year we pray, fast, and hope for our hearts desires to come to pass...then nothing! We know He’s going to come through, because of His faithfulness in the past. However, simply put, waiting can be very difficult! But the assuring thing in waiting on God is He always comes through. Yes it’s very frustrating when we’re used to having every we want instantaneously. However everything happens in His appointed time! So during the waiting process we must do what we have to do, cry, praise, worship, hope, pray...but most importantly believe He’ll come through because He always does and always will! Have a blessed week!

For my look today I took it back to an oldie but goodie. I pulled out this multi-print body con dress. 

With the busy print of the dress I kept my accessories to a minimum. Blue pumps and a leather jacket completed the look. 

Hope you enjoy!
