For me this is the PERFECT Friday vibe look! Sassy, comfy, laid back, and stylish! I LOVE LOVE the color combo. Actually that is what i had in my mind when I planned it. It was one of those looks that worked out perfectly.
This does not always happen! I've talked about this before.
Sometimes it is a trial and error situation. I'll have an idea that's PERFECT in my head but in reality... ehh not so much. Sometimes it is far off the mark! I'm left thinking... wtf was I thinking!? -Sorry Mom and Dad! Other times it is not as far off and with some tweaking and restyling I can create a great look!
Then there are times like today where I have an idea and it really works! I won't lie, I love it when that happens! It certainly makes things easier! ;D
Everything here is restyled including the button up shirt which was actually given to me by one of my good friends, Amy! I swear I live in this shirt! It is so comfy and has served me so well! I have gotten so much wear out of it! I especially like it with this dress. I felt this color combo would be perfect -and it was!
Okay, on to a more serious topic. I read something about God talking to you about loving others and it was a back and forth about how a person was kind but did they really LOVE others. That struck a nerve with me. I feel like I love others, and I try really hard to be kind to others but I DEFINITELY steer clear of confrontation. But that's not okay. When I hear people saying unkind things about someone, I need to stand up for those people. If someone is in need, I want to be able to be there for them. Kind of the same way I would want them to be there for me.
We are all in this together. Some of us have it far harder than others. We need to be there for them. Yes, all lives matter. But not all lives are treated equally. Black lives, gay lives, transgender lives, immigrants lives, Asian lives... the list could go on..... We need reconciliation. We need community. We need love and support. Times are certainly tense, but lets have an open conversation. Try to understand each other. Right now it is our black brothers and sisters who's lives are in crisis. Lets stand up and be a voice for them.
Loving each other means loving when it is difficult, when it is uncomfortable as well as when things are great. Right now things are difficult and uncomfortable.
But lets love and stand up for each other all the same.
