Have you ever felt like blessings or opportunities were on standby in your life? I sure have. But it’s important to continue to do the work handle your business and keep God first.
Are you living your best life each and everyday? Are you thriving? or just surviving?
You ever stopped and thought… “Wow, I prayed for this. It’s here. It’s happening.”
It’s my 28th Birthday and I’m so blessed and thankful for how far I’ve come!
If you asked what I would be doing this year for my 28th birthday back in December I would have probably said that I was going to be out of the country with my friends. But… instead I’m moving across the country by myself with no friends or family. Talk about a leap of faith. This is the second biggest milestone of my life so I am trying to stay positive and not be too nervous about this HUGE move.
So much to prepare for… looking for a new job, buying new furniture and also finding new restaurants to try and new places to explore. New memories to create in the Year of 28. This is my year of INCREASE. Increase in wealth, health, happiness and love.
In the midst of going through this huge move I was able to do more outfit shoots. This look is one of my favorites. The Who What Wear Collection is definitely one of my favorite collections in Target. There are always some really cute items that would be perfect in any woman’s wardrobe so don’t sleep on them.
The bulk of my look is from the new Who What Wear Collection, jacket and skirt. Cute right!? Both were priced under $40. Paired with a grommet cut off band t-shirt and one of my favorite and most comfortable pairs of Steve Madden heels. Check out more outfit details below!
Shirt: Forever 21
Heels: Steve Madden
I sure could use a vacation on the shore of somebody’s beach, but until then I’ll envision myself in a bikini with my jersey cover-up.
Better yet lets talk about how Athletic wear is making its way into the wardrobes of many. A few years back I was thrift shopping at my local Goodwill and saw a pair of baseball pants and two random football/basketball jerseys. I didn’t know what I would use them for just yet but I forecasted that they would eventually be a trend. I used the pants for a shoot about two years ago that I paired with a crop top and a vintage Letterman jacket.
The last few weeks have been such…. they’ve been up and down for me. I have been fasting from sweets, red meat and pork since June 1st. Whew just know.. Sweets are my kryptonite. I love cup cakes, gummy bears, doughnuts… you name it. So you know its been tough. But through all of that God provided me with the clarity I needed on a few situations that had been lingering and I’m grateful. Mini Full disclosure moment… but on to the clothing!
Vertical stripes definitely are my new thing, I could definitely use more of a taller and slimmer look. The stripes I’ve worn in this post and my previous post have done just that.
Pinstripe & structured tops are my absolute favorites of the season. Every chance I get to buy something unique I jump on it especially if its a good price. I’ve found that stores like Marshall’s, Tj Maxx and & Charlotte Russe carry some of the nicer more affordable tops and bottoms and are somewhat “slept on”. Which is fine with me because those are stores I frequent and leaves more for me!
