NOW IS NOW Tee

Although I really don’t have many, I love statement tees.

When I saw this one at H&M, I knew I needed to get it. At first I didn’t get the full significance of it, but the more I have worn it, the more I have realized I want to embrace every moment I live.

N O W IS NOW.

I’m a vision-driven person, and I love that about myself. What I fail to do often though is to relax and enjoy the ride as I pursue my dreams.

To all those dreamers, goal-setters, and perfectionists, I want to remind you to LIVE IN THE MOMENT. It is great to work towards what you envision, but I think we need to do a better job at celebrating the breaths we have to achieve those goals.

Btw, this whole outfit was so my jam this weekend. I lowkey took risks, and I am so glad I did. 😉  Top is from H&M, denim is from American Eagle, boots from my so loved Zara, and earrings from F21.

Shoutout to one of my best friends as well for my black and rose gold bracelet! Shop her website at Ryanne G.

Love you guys.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of meeting one of my IG followers (that I also follow) to do a photoshoot at an amazing location in Los Angeles. Her name is Danielle Torres and she is a SoCal based photographer. We began to follow each other a while back, maybe two years ago, and we have finally met! We met up at the so-loved-by-bloggers Alfred’s Tea spot on Melrose. After chatting for a few, we headed out to the luxurious Greystone Mansion and took in multiple breaths of fresh air as we walked through its glorious design.

One reason why I love social media is because this generation is able to meet people whom we had never encountered in person 15 years ago. It is bananas how a simple follow will let you grow in a community outside of the photos. Danielle and I love creativity and artistry, so shooting with her was a blast and super effortless.

Danielle is 23, has had a lot of ups and downs in life, but is living life so graciously and so expectant for the best to come. I want to say thank you to Danielle for the opportunity and wanted to feature her work on my blog because she is simply amazing. She loves God, wants to set an example for her family and this beautiful generation we live in, and desires to create magic daily.

If you are interested in getting in touch with her, follow her IG account @daniellecelestetorres. She is incredibly sweet, real, and so humble.

Til next time,

Refreshed

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

When I went into this Daniel’s Fast at the beginning of January, I expected to be rejuvenated and encouraged in many areas of my life. But to be honest, more than relaxing and taking a break from distractions, I had to passionately fight so many internal thoughts of doubt, fear, and impatience. Needless to say, on the very last day of the fast, everything changed.

Breakthrough came and I feel completely new. I feel inspired. Accepting what is before me and being faithful with it. Simply refreshed.

I have learned a lot of lessons over the last 21 days. I would say the most important one is that I am human and in desperate need of help from the One above. Not that I didn’t know this, but sometimes in our human nature we tend to think we have it all together. In reality, no matter how good we think we have it, there will always be something we will susceptibly fall for.

Have there been any areas in your life that you need to fight?

I think it is important to be real with yourself and face all those insecurities head on to tell them who is boss. Confession is a huge part of transformation. Open up, cry a little or a lot, and allow God to help you in your deepest.

Trend: Over the Knee Boots

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I was intimidated until I tried these boots on. Found them randomly at Marshall’s for $59 (no sales tax in NYC; praise break!) and I am so glad I bought them.

It was cold today, so I had to layer up. I figured by wearing the boots, I would look more put together than just with jeans and a hoodie 😉 it is all about balance and adding your own twist to the items you purchase.

How would you style these boots? I can’t wait to play around more and wear them more often.

Trend: The Pleated Skirt

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

When it comes to style, I am not much of a “girly-girl.” I love things with edge, that display that I don’t play–lol yet I love to throw slight hints of me being delicate and kind. Feminine pieces are great but I love to mix such items with unexpected hints of…ME.

I have seen a lot of my favorite bloggers and magazines displaying the pleated skirt in such lady-like ways that I decided to wear one in slightly two different ways. Of course I am a lady, but I have to express this femininity in my uniqueness.

Pleats and Sneaks

Processed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 preset

The first way I wore the pleated skirt is with sneakers. (I found this skirt at my local Salvation Army Thrift Store.) I paired it with an old cargo bomber I had traded in at Urban Cheapskate and a white camisole to keep things neutral and airy, since it was hot as ever that afternoon.

I serve at my awesome local church (Transformation Church) in our media department, so being behind the scenes of photography and social media always has me on the move. This means that comfort, especially on my feet, matters. I tried the outfit on to make sure I did not look like a complete mess the previous night, even though 95% of the time I do not ever plan my outfits (I just wing them). Needless to day, I really enjoyed this look and plan on wearing my sneakers with another thrifted skirt I got for colder days. 😉

Pleats and Studs

The second way I wore this skirt, in which I think is my favorite, is with my studded heels. I purchased these online at Forever21, and yes they are heavy and can be uncomfortable after wearing them over 5 hours BUT cmon, they are dope!

Can we talk about slayage? LOL. Lowkey when I saw these pictures, I took a second look because my hair was unplanned, I was sweating, and my feet were throbbing after such a long day. Shoutout to my beautiful photographer that happens to be one of my best friends, Ryanne G.

DAY 2

Processed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 preset

Wearing heels and walking everywhere is not the most comfortable. For Day 2, I would still wear neutrals, preferably warmer tones, and sneakers. The perfect balance of classy, urban, and sporty was what I was going for. I love to mix things around and capture someone’s eye with the most unexpected attire.

Details: trench from F21, tee dress from Beau and Arrow, sneakers by Adidas X Stella McCartney.

Also, may I mention how obsessed I am with these Adidas X Stella McCartney sneakers? They are the perfect pair of comfortable and luxurious sneakers. I purchased mine at Saks.com.

Comfort is everything. Invest in sleek and comfortable footwear that will also make a statement.
