Shedding Light Onto Your Fears

legit shed

Fall is here and while the weather isn’t what I expected so far, I will forever have love for this season. Everything looks so cozy even when there’s a crispness in the air.

The one teeny (yet popular) detail I don’t like about fall is Halloween. While I don’t celebrate, watching all the decorations go up gives me the chills….hehehe. Seriously. ☹

Now if you know me, you’ll know about my fear of basically everything. I know, I know. Medgina? Afraid? The answer is a solid yes. I can’t sleep in the dark or watch a scary movie or listen to a scary story or breathe at a normal pace if a cat is five feet away from me (long story). My fears have prohibited me from doing soooo much and I didn’t realize it.

Until now. Continue reading

Fall Into…


Wow, I’m a college senior already!

I’m not even going to talk about where the time went or any of that stuff. Let’s just take it a day at a time, shall we?

So fall.

IT’S HERE AH! If you couldn’t tell, it’s my absolute favorite season. I’m a fall baby born on October 24 (woot woot!) It’s not too cold, not too hot. You can wear sandals but you could also wear long sleeves. It’s a season of paradox haha.


Fall isn’t just a season though. It’s not all about the leaves turning colors and eventually drifting to the ground. It’s not all about apple picking, pumpkin carving and transitional clothes. It’s about the transitioning of self.

You could argue that the changing of each season is the transitioning of self but fall represents the transitioning of self in the sense of leaving the old parts of you behind. In shedding the dead surface, you strengthen your core and embrace the steps of becoming the best you.

Fall into your new self! Wishing you all a prosperous season in Jesus’ name.

Hosea 10:12 –  “Break new ground.
Plant righteousness,
and harvest the fruit that your loyalty will produce for me.”
It’s time to seek the Lord!
When he comes, he will rain righteousness on you.

Happy fall, guys!

How have you been holding up?

I’ve been freezing back here in New Jersey – the temperatures dropped so quickly! I’ve been wearing my summer items because I left all my fall/winter things home. This past weekend, I had to go back to pack them up and bring them to campus. Can you say “clutch?”

As I suffered (joking), I browsed SHOPBOP for the perfect transitional item: the jacket! I found so many but ultimately decided that these three are my ultimate favorites.

  1. I’ve always wanted a cape jacket. You don’t even have to dress up in this piece; it’s a statement in itself. I love the sleek finish and this jacket is just so me! PS: My birthday is coming up (hint hint).
  2. Fur! The pattern is aesthetically appealing and the colors are very fall. I always have burgundy pieces in my closet and this one could happily take up my space.
  3. I’ve always gone for boxy items. This particular collarless jacket caught my eye because of the bold outline. The white lapel provides a stark contrast and you all know I love boldness! Another plus are the huge pockets!

What’s your favorite transitioning piece, guys? For more fall jackets and inspo, check here!

More Than A Conqueror

adornedinarmor-10Okay so…This outfit was birthed unconsciously. I got the dress from H&M when they sent me a coupon in the mail claiming, “We miss you!” And I got the blazer a few weeks later from Missguided. I was looking for a different type of jacket for my internship and the design caught my eye. The shoes were 50% off at my job at ALDO – I’ve been eyeing those bad boys for weeks.

When I actually purchased the shoes, I got the idea of the military because you know, of the gladiator feel. I KNEW I had to wear it with my army green dress and the metallic blazer that reminded me of armor. The bracelet is an old find from God knows where and the necklace is from ALDO, too. The make of it keeps the “warrior” feel consistent.

Bam. I was dressed to kill. (And I’m not saying that in a conceited way – keep reading, keep reading!)




I got baptized on Saturday August 29th! Baptism is basically a symbol to show the world that you’re in it but no longer of it. It’s a public testimony that illustrates that you’re officially a part of God’s royal family. Baptism doesn’t save you; your acceptance of Jesus Christ does. However, you get baptized because you’re saved. I hope you’re following. Jesus loves us so much that He died for all of our sins. That’s salvation. I was baptized because I believe and I want to serve Him and not fall prey to the world.

I knew it has been time to take the next huge step in my faith. Jesus loves me too much for me to stay where I was. So I took the plunge . (Literally.)


Baptism represents your old self dying in the water and being lifted up as a new person. Before I got baptized, my Sunday school class was told, “After baptism, you embarrass Satan so he attacks harder. He sees he can’t play around with you anymore and fights even harder to divert your attention away from Christ to bring you down with him.”

Well, I have the full armor of God and so I am more than equipped. I am more than a conqueror. Who says so? The Bible, that’s what.

I’ve always been vocal about my faith here on my blog. In fact, the title, “Adorned in Armor” was birthed from Ephesians 6:10. (For more about how I chose to name my blog, click here.)

The Armor of God (NIV)

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.19 Pray also for me,that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

I prefer that version, but if that was hard to understand, here’s another version! Straight to the point.

A Fight to the Finish (MSG)

10-12 And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.

13-18 Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.

You know, I never thought that I had a testimony. I grew resilient in the faith due to my mom’s perseverance despite her severe illness. I grew resilient in the faith due to my father who made sure we had all of our needs and more in a house of 6 and racked up hospital bills. Yes, it is my parents’ that faith has made me who I am but it’s my own relationship with Christ that transforms me.

In Ephesians, Paul not only tell us to be “strong in the Lord,” he also asks for a specific prayer. And so I’m asking for the same thing. Pray that whenever I open my mouth or whenever someone sees me, I make fearlessly known of the gospel.

I don’t have to say Jesus Jesus Jesus in every single one of my posts to prove I’m a Christian. It is the things I say, how I adorn myself and how I carry myself that sets me a part. I pray you continue to see my faith in me and that I continue to speak boldly about the One that was lovingly bold enough to die for me and you.

Real warriors walk in who Christ is. I am more than a conqueror because it is Christ ALONE that gives me victory!







Follow me as I follow Christ! (PS: I didn’t make that up myself haha)

Internship Lookbook


Hey guys heyyyyyy!

So I’m all finished up with my internship! It was truly an honor being there. I met and networked with some awesome people and experienced some pretty special things. However, I think it’s the advice that I received and was able to share with you that was my favorite moment!

Now that my internship is over, it only makes sense to conclude my internship series with a bang!  I decided to switch things up some for my fifth and final look. I created an internship lookbook with all 5 styles!

Thank you, Domonique, for being so willing to help with my photos and videos and thanks to you all for your continuous support! I hope you all enjoyed this series as much as I enjoyed creating! To unlock the final look, please go check out that video. Please subscribe, like and comment!

Here, I’m sharing my fourth ELLE intern look and my top 12 internship must-haves! Scroll along, scroll along ;)

Ask An Elle Editor | VICTORIA HOFF


Hey guys!

This time around, I didn’t sit down with an editor, I emailed one! Whenever I went into the office, I’d see the bohemian chic Victoria Hoff and since I won’t be seeing her anymore, I thought to pick her mind a little bit.

Victoria was the Associate Editor of Yeah, you noticed I said “was” right? Victoria’s headed to California to pursue an opportunity with the sister site of Who What Wear! In the past, she interned with Runway Rundown, Catherine Malandrino, Vogue and even with ELLE before she later got a job there.

Follow us along as we discuss grad school (or nah?), her career path and her old blog! Continue reading



Hey guys, hey!

I’m here to share with you intern look number 3! I began this series to cover all things internships – from looks, to interviewing the pros, to capturing my days at through video! If you haven’t checked out my previous looks, be sure to do so here and here!

For my third look, I chose to do my favorite thing: wear different prints! I got this floral peplum top from ASOS and the stretchy gingham pants are from H&M. (SB: They’re absolutely perfect for being out and about)

My shoesies are F21. Yes, “shoesies.” That was not a typo lol. I know you probably think I’m crazy for wearing heels but I’m really not. I have no problem wearing short heels/sandals in the office and I was doing so for the majority of the summer. However, towards the end of my internship, I decided to pack my high heels in my bag and change into them when I reached the building. There are a whole bunch of comfy couch-like chairs that I could sit on to put these bad boys on. I’ve seen other women do the same haha. You can, too!

But yeah. I guess you can say nude shoes are an essential to perfect an intern look. Scratch that; it’s essential period! They match with pretty much everything.

Whataya think?
