Hey there lovelies!! How was your weekend? I had very lovely but exhausting weekend, that started off with a Friday night sleepover of 4-8 year olds for 5th birthday of my best friend’s daughter, and I never quite recovered from the exhaustion, though I moved forward with a weekend of work and time with family and friends. I’ve always been big on valuing my family and friends, but there is something about having something unexpectedly horrible happen to me that has made me appreciate those moments with loved ones even more.
When I got up on Sunday morning to dress for church, I had a different idea in mind. I actually wanted to wear this dress, but when I put it on, it just wasn’t speaking to me as I’d hoped, and I am actually thinking of giving it away or turning it into a shirt (what do you think?). I decided to wear this skirt instead, and I’m glad I did, because something about it makes me SO happy!! Maybe its the bold print and colors, or fullness without the need of a tutu (what I use to make my other skirts full). Whatever it is, I’m still so glad my friend said it made her of think of me when she sent it to me last year .
Blouse: Ellen Tracy- vintage from Imperfect Concepts (similar); Skirt: Unknown- vintage gift; Shoes: Jessica Simpson- Dillard’s; Belt: Forever 21 (similar); Necklace: Nakate Project; Clutch: Unknown- thrifted from Goodwill; Green Clutch Cover™: Clutched & Covered™
I’m just smitten with my latest shoe purchase! They are feminine, dainty, spicy, and fun. I’ve kinda grown tired of buying shoes with platforms, especially pumps, have you?
I must admit that coming up with a post title is sometimes the hardest part about sharing these outfits each week, because I often find myself coming up with the same title, lol. When I first thought of a title for this outfit, I thought of titling it “Mixed”, because of the pairing of leopard and floral print, but when I went to download the pictures to my computer, I typed “Looking Back” as the name of the photo folder instead. I started to change it, but I remembered the sermon from Sunday’s church service in which the minister discussed looking forward to what lies ahead in the future and not letting the past hinder future blessings. As my body, heart, and mind continues to heal from what happened to me almost 3 months ago (and maybe yours is healing from something too), I am working on looking forward as opposed to looking back because the future is big, bright, and full of glitter .
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK DARLINGS!!
