Growing up we imagine that our lives will turn out a certain way. We tell ourselves, that at this age I'll have this or by that age I'll have that; at least that was the case for me. I could not have been more wrong! Currently in my early thirties, I never imagined things in my life would be the way that they are currently.  Good, bad, or indifferent, I never thought that this would be my life! However, one of the main things that I'm grateful that I've had throughout my life, are unexpected moments that get me through tough situations; divine interruptions rather. Moments that you know for a fact are orchestrated by God. For me most of those moments involve some of my closest family and friends. God has a way of placing the most unlikely people in your path. Most of the time you never knew you needed them until you have them. I'm grateful for those moments and am very appreciative of the people involved. So my encouraging word for today is that even during difficult times, appreciate the people you get you through. In any capacity. #NoteToSelf

Things have been so chaotic in my life lately, some days I honestly feel like I'm losing my mind! So of course my creativity has been inhibited. However, my goal is to remain consistent with this blog. Chronicling those times when I'm uninspired. My goal is to one day look back on how far I've come. Remembering that even when I couldn't trace God, He was still with me. Even through blogging. 

Dress down Sunday's are still in effect. For my look today, I channeled a popular character, Beetlejuice!lol Stripes are always a fun way to stand out. So for my look today I paired a striped blazer with my black and white striped pants. To keep the casual vibe, I threw on a gray tee and nude pumps. 

Surprisingly, I had the cutest necklace that complimented the look perfectly. 

Hope you enjoy!

Whether it's on Sunday morning, during a casual conversation, or even reading it on the back of US currency, trusting in God has been a concept that has been adopted by the masses! However, no one really talks about how difficult it can be. It's easy to trust in Him when things are going well, however chances are, most of us if not all of us, is faced with some sort of situation that is out of our control. A situation that can only be resolved by something bigger and greater than ourselves. The gag in that observation, is we all trust in things/people that are flawed and to a certain degree will eventually fail us. When they do fail us we're often times shocked! Imagine putting that same kind of faith in one who literally cannot lie or fail. Oh the peace we will have! His promises assures us that He always has our backs. Even in the midst of our hardships, He's always with us. That alone is comforting. The key is to believe. I'm speaking to myself this morning, make a choice to believe and trust in God! 

Summer months are reserved for casual Sunday's! So for this Sunday, I decided to throw on some jeans, a deconstructed top and some lace ups. 

Chill and cool was my approach this morning. Hopefully it was achieved. 

Hope you enjoy!

It's the last day of July and I would just like to say that this has been the month from HELL!! Lol
Everything that could go wrong this month...DID! So much so in fact, that it has caused me to really rethink a lot of things in my life and aggressively make some significant changes. The best thing about this month, other than it's over, is that, even in the midst of making some really stupid decisions, general hardships and very harsh consequences, I made it through! The ONLY way that I made it through was definitely by the grace of God! Trust God and don't worry has been my moto. As hard as it has been, it's the only option and definitely the best option.

August is about to be LIT!

A day late and a dollar short, but I'm back with another Church Style. For this past Sunday the congregation was asked to wear white. For my look I decided to pull out an oldie but goodie, a structured dress with great detail.

The structure of this dress gives the illusion of a smaller waist and the neckline, highlights the d├ęcolletage gorgeously! I've never been one to wear a ton of jewelry but some dresses require a banging necklace. For this dress I opted for a silver choker and relied on my standard studs. 

Nude pumps rounded out the look.

Hope you enjoy!
