Blue Skies and Sunshine
Sunday after church, where I wore this outfit, I decided to go visit my best friend and her new baby. The skies were so pretty and blue and the sun was shining, so I thought I’d throw on what have become my faithful cutoffs with the shirt I’d already had on from church earlier in the day. I’m a fan of the denim on denim look, so this outfit was a no brainer for me. I wear heels a lot, though not all of the time, so I thought it’d be fun to share an outfit with you guys where I am dressed down a bit and standing at my natural height of 5’9″ .
I ordered these shoes from Forever 21 a couple of weeks ago, but when they arrived last week, I was a bit on the fence about them. I loved the color, but wasn’t sure if I loved them on. Since I bought them to wear this Spring/Summer, I tested them out with shorts and skirts in my mirror at home, and decided to keep them, when I was getting dressed in this outfit. Every now and then I come across something that doesn’t scream love me or hate me, so it takes me a moment to make a decision .
There comes a time in life, especially after you’ve gone through a difficult time, where you just feel like the sun is shining on you, even when it’s literally raining outside. Though things in my life are far from perfect, that’s where I am at this point of my life. I feel like God’s smiling His sunshine down on me giving me the light I need to bloom, like the roses sitting on my nightstand , and I am enjoying the process, as I know I will need to remember it the next time life hits me with a hard blow!
I don’t know where you may be, but if you are facing something difficult right now, please do know that the sun always shines after darkness!
P.S. I didn’t have intentions of getting all introspective with this post, but sometimes I must just let the fingers do the talking.
