Embrace Your Bold | Sponsored by Banana Republic

My mom always tells me how shocked she is at who I am today and I always laugh.  Ya see, I used to be extremely quiet…so much so, that corny grownups would say “cat got your tongue?” almost everyday of my kid life. I also didn’t like people much…I preferred my mom and the rest of my family lol.

3 Steps to Take Charge of Your Life

I’m not a follower. I’m not easily swayed. I like being my own boss. I know what I want, how I want it…and yeah. I’m sure of myself…in a good, black girl magic kind of way. This past year, though?! I’ve been wrecked. Like literally, I’ve been facing situations that have rocked my world back to back. God has shown me time and time again there are simply things that I cannot control.

 

I can, however, take charge of how I respond to the situations I face in life and honeyyy, so can you. It’s time we redefine taking charge of our lives. Let’s make this quick and easy, shall we?

Fashion Week Is Never Cancelled

Our craziest snowstorm of the season just had to be on the first day of Fashion Week, right? I remember looking out the window and seeing crazy flurries and rising snow all over. My family and friends asked me, “You sure Fashion Week isn’t cancelled?”  I had to laugh but I so was dreading going out in that weather!

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?

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.

Loving Love

IMG_0436

I love love! So whenever Valentine’s Day comes around, I can’t help but wear the typical pinks, reds, and purples and be in a gushy, giddy mood. Even when I was single, I was never a VDay hater lol maybe it was my upbringing in my faith. No, not maybe – definitely! I’m surrounded by love daily and I’m constantly reminded of the Ultimate Love of all:  sweet sweet Jesus! Get it? Sweet? (Yes, I chuckle at my own jokes.)

I traveled back to Jersey to celebrate the holiday with my hunay. It was a long bus ride (about 4.5 hours) but it was soooo worth it. I haven’t seen Paul in over a month! *cues tears* It felt surreal to be not just with him, but my family. I missed them so much!

On to the good stuff. I spent the first half of my VDay with my mom. The quality time was much needed and we appreciated each other’s company (I’m a momma’s girl, guys.)

The second half of my day was spent with Paul! I had no clue what he was planning until we reached the stables.  Yup, he surprised me with a horseback lesson!!! Mind you, he didn’t know I used to collect figurines of horses as a child. The experience … took my breath away. Both, literally and figuratively.

IMG_1085Afterwards, we went to dinner at a perfect Thai restaurant. It was the perfect  ending to a perfect day with the most perfect people.

IMG_1054 IMG_1061 IMG_1079I guess now’s the part where I tell you about what I’m wearing, right? All ASOS errthang!!! Haha no seriously, everything is. Except for my pants. They’re from The Gap. If you guys don’t realize, the “shirt” I’m wearing is actually the dress I wore for my birthday! I folded it up and voila.

It doesn’t matter that it’s two days after Vday, Happy Valentine’s Day, Adorners! And if you haven’t heard it lately, I love you all 😉
