Serving: The Last Church Style of 2017

It’s the last day of 2017 and good riddance!! Lol. But before you think this is a post of “woe is me”, depicting how awful this year was for’s not! However, as terrible as this year has been, I never want to dismiss the pain and disappointment this year has caused me. But I refuse to stay there. It’s not the first bad year in my life and probably won’t be the last of my life. Nonetheless the great thing about THIS year is that it’s over! 

I cannot let this year end without reflecting on the many blessings that God has given me, mainly Him being a keeper! Yes very “churchy” but oh so true! With everything I faced this year, the lessons learned from each of my challenges made each of them worth it. 

I’ve gained things I never knew I needed. I’ve experienced love in ways I’ve never imagined. I’ve been able to develop deeper connections with people I love the most. I’ve been afforded many opportunities that helped me to grow and evolve with many more to come! 

No one ever enters a new year expecting the worse (at least I hope not) and entering into 2018 is no exception! I’m excited to see everything God has in store for me and everyone connected to me! Here’s to 2018!! Happy New Year!!

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!
