Red Dress // Perception Is Everything

Do you guys remember when social media went crazy trying to figure out if that “the dress” was white and gold or blue and black? I went through the same thing while wearing this dress. Is it a red dress or is it orange? To me, it’s clearly red…just with an orange tint lol.

 

Perception is everything, they say. In this case, I must agree. Since we’re talking all about love this month on Adorned in Armor (be sure to catch up on this post and this one, too), I find it a must to discuss how we walk in love.

The Most Important Reasons Why You Should Love Yourself

Self-care has been one of the most blatant topics of conversation in our society lately.  It’s all about making sure your mental health is given serious attention, indulging in the things that make you happy, and appreciating who you are…especially in the state of this crazy country of ours.

 

Inevitably, when one considers self-care, self-love isn’t too far off. Because why take care of yourself if you don’t love yourself? Why work out, take bubble baths, or have that one cheat meal if you don’t love yourself?

HAPPY NEW YEAR | 2016: Year of Revelation

Happy New Year!

 

I, for one, am particularly happy 2017 is here. 2016 went by rather fast but it was the most difficult time of my life. I experienced so much pain this year…in a way that I didn’t even know was possible.

FAST FASHION

I find inspiration everywhere, especially when it comes to clothes. You know me, I like connecting the smallest things to real life situations. But when I looked at my outfit after I shot these looks, I had no idea what I was going to talk to you guys about.

 

Until I saw that pretty much everything I was wearing was fast fashion. It was quite a discovery haha. There’s nothing wrong with that, trust me. I love my luxury and fast retailers just the same. However, I just found it interesting how the “fast fashion” notion came to mind. It was right on time.

In Search of the Sun

I’ve professed my hatred for the summer season many times but I do love the sun. Not when it’s scorching hot, but yeah, I love it. I actually have a thing for the sky in general. If you catch me on a walk, you’ll see me with my head cocked back and eyes wide, enthralled by the infinite masterpiece God painted.

 

Now that Daylight Savings have come upon us, I appreciate the extra hour (of sleep) but I’ll forever be dissatisfied with how little time we have to see the sun in all its glory.

Pray for Haiti, Donate to Haiti

“Red and yellow, black and white, we are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.”

 

My mother used to sing this to me all the time. My siblings and I even had a tape cassette and a book filled with the lyrics and children of all different ethnicities vibrantly displayed. They were smiling, they were all holding hands.

Feel It All And Still Flourish On

I know you’re grieved. Angered. Hurt. Disgruntled. Maybe even feeling betrayed. Plainly, you are heartbroken over the hate that permeates this country. And I encourage beseech you to feel it. Feel it all. You have all the right to feel any or all of those things — no permission necessary. Don’t lament that you feel this way in the first place.

You are human.

Walking in the Light of Authority

I’ve always been sure of myself. Well, actually, it kicked in while in high school. But even when I was a super shy girl, I was matter-of-fact when I decided to speak up. You know that quote: Keep your heads, heels and standards high? Yeah, that’s totally me.
