                                                 is around the corner and that means yummy food, family gatherings, and saying thanks for all the things we are grateful for. Im so excited to see my family and eat my weight in turkey & dressing and sweet potato casserole!  Whether you’re heading across town or flying out of state, comfort is key when it comes to spending a day with the fam!  This cowl neck cable sweater from Target is the ideal! Add a pair of suede over the knee boots and matching fedora to keep the look cool and casual.

This outfit is “fowl” proof!

Looking stylish shouldn’t cost a fortune!
I love pairing affordable pieces with a high end bag.

Leopard Print Love

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

         Last weekend, I spent time with my grandmother in my hometown of Selma, Alabama.  While there, I knew I wanted to do a post on my current obsession with leopard print- but I wasn’t exactly sure how I wanted to do it.  So I figured I would just shoot my OOTD and share my fun leopard shoes! 

       One of the best things about  leopard print is that it’s essentially a neutral. It goes with any color.  Seems Im on a mission right now to see how many different ways I can wear this primal print. I bought these strappy leopard shoes about a week ago... and I literally get compliments every where that I wear them. Dress them up with a sassy dress or down with a pair of distressed jeans. They transform any boring outfit to not so basic! 

I purchased my shoes at a local boutique... but I found them online for a STEAL! These are the Breckelle Isabel51 heels and you can get them HERE for half of what I paid!

 I love this comfy black blouse(especially because I found it for only $14.99 at TJMaxx)!

Here are a few pair of budget conscious beauties that I found for you online...

Seeing In Shades of Grey

Thursday, November 10, 2016

A few months ago, my photographer asked me to model for a college project.  I was asked to tell a story through the lens of his camera…to portray brokenness, vulnerability,  and pain. Andrew did an amazing job with these photos.. and now, months later… they seem to tell my story. 

 Life has a funny way of knocking you to your knees… just when everything in your life seems so right.  A failed four year relationship has left me with so many questions about love and life in general.  

Although I haven’t found all of the answers, here is what I’ve realized. 
I have limited myself and those around me. I mean, most things are a thousand shades of grey and all I was focusing on was the black and white. Black and white thinking is when you believe something either has to be one thing or another; good or bad, right or wrong, all or nothing. You see...we live in a world where its so easy to categorize people and situations as either good and evil or black and white. Ive come to understand that life is all about the shades of grey. We are imperfect people... meaning he’s imperfect, I’m imperfect and our relationship certainly was not perfect. When we focus on the white, we set ourselves up for a lot of disappointment because fairytale relationships just do not exist. When we focus on the black, we become negative, judgmental, and suspicious… and who wants to live like that? 

I’m not going to pretend that Im ok.  The dark areas sometimes still creep in, leaving me feeling really bitter that four years of my life is now gone... or my head trying to convince my heart that he’s just a bad person.  But I’m determined to see this situation in a different light.  He is not a bad person and his mistakes do not define him. They also do not define me.  We are all children of God and God accepts him just as much as he accepts me… no matter the severity of our mistakes.  

 So learn to accept the imperfections in people, relationships, and in this crazy life that we live. Things are never either black or white. When you realize this simple fact, you free yourself from the prison of your mind. You learn to let go and accept the grey areas, instead of placing everything under “black” or “white” and “good” or “bad” labels. Learn to see below the surface in every situation. I will guarantee you.. you will not find a whole lot of black or white there. 
 I’m learning to accept my brokenness and I’m learning to be very thankful for the trials that God allows us to go through in order for our focus to be redirected back to Him.
