What’s living boldly mean? I used to think it was impossible to live boldly. Especially when our world continuously sends messages on how we should live, dress, act, and talk. Then I remembered, we’re not of this world. You see, God calls us to be in this world but not of it. What does that mean? It means that we’re not supposed to fit in. It means that we’re different. Fitting in won’t work because we were created to stand out. Living boldly to me means aligning all of my actions with who God created me to be.

This spring, I’m having a lot more fun with fashion. I’m pushing myself to wear different color combinations and I love it. My number one rule with fashion is: have fun! Fashion is supposed to be about expression. Whatever you decide to wear for the day, it should express how you feel. Never feel compelled to wear something to please someone else. Never dress a certain way because you’re afraid of what others might think. At the end of the day, you need to be happy with yourself. If you don’t fit into a box or a certain mold, own it. Stand out. When God created you, He threw away the mold. Be proud that there’s no one else like you.
This particular day, I was feeling bold and flirty. This off the shoulder ruffled dress helped me bring out the flirty side. I paired it with my metallic loafers to bring an unexpected element to this look and I loved the result.

I’m looking forward to this three day weekend. We made all of these plans and then we scrapped them. Why? Because we didn’t want to have a planned weekend. We really just wanted to rest and go with the flow. I really believe that amazing things can happen to us when we let go. When we realize we don’t always have to have control, we open ourselves up to new possibilities, relationships, and experiences. So, I have no idea what we’re doing this weekend but I’m looking forward to it!
To all of the brave men and women who lost their lives fighting for the United States, I thank you for your sacrifice. I’m praying that God’s peace and love surrounds your family.
I’ve been busy with Queen Styles Boutique and getting everything ready for when our baby boy arrives. I needed a break! A time to just refocus and recharge my batteries. So we went to a baseball game and tried out a new restaurant. That seems to always do the trick. I’ve always loved overalls because they bring me back to my childhood. I probably had a pair in just about everything color! So this seemed like the perfect time to wear them. I really do believe that what we wear can alter our moods. Our clothing can boost our moods and make us feel different when we need it.
I decided to be really casual and paired my overalls with a stripped shirt and comfy shoes. You can wear overalls with tank tops or a basic tee. You can pair them with sneakers, sandals or a cute pair of wedges.
We had our babymoon! It gave us an opportunity to vacation before our baby boy gets here. For our babymoon, we went to Charleston, SC. We always have a good time in Charleston; it has a lot of charm. We didn’t really plan the activities for this trip like we normally do. I have to admit, I’m a planner so it was hard to just go with the flow but it was great seeing where our vacation took us. We ended up eating at restaurants we would’ve never gone to and exploring the beach like we never would’ve if we had planned every detail. Isn’t it funny how we try to have so much control over certain things in life when giving up control is really what’s best? There’s nothing wrong with being a planner. When God made me, He knew exactly what He was doing. Planning allows me to be efficient, productive, and effect. It’s a great quality to have; however, sometimes when we give up control we’ll open the door for new experiences to happen to us. Here are a few photos from our babymoon:

Now that Spring is here, I’m pulling out my favorite jumpsuits. I love jumpsuits because they effortlessly make you looked pulled together. This jumpsuit has vertical stripes, which are great for visually adding height. Yes, they can give the appearance that you’re taller! Aside from that, this print creates visual interest, taking out the hard work for you. Plus, the ruffles and pockets make this jumpsuit a fun piece to add to your wardrobe.

It’s official, spring is finally here! Spring represents a new beginning. The flowers are blooming, daylight lasts longer, and the temperatures are rising. It’s truly a beautiful time of year and it’s a perfect time to reflect the season in your wardrobe! Go ahead, experiment with bright colors. Want to wear bright print? Do it! If you’re not used to wearing bright colors or prints, start small. For example, try pairing a bright colored shirt with denim pants. Another option to brighten up your wardrobe is to wear pastel colors. This time of year, there are plenty of pastel colored dresses in stores, try one on! Fashion isn’t about looking perfect. Fashion is all about having fun with your look.
I wore this pink pastel dress to bring in the new season. To mix up my look, I paired this dress with a grey hat and black boots.
Now that spring is finally here, Queen Styles Boutique is doing a spring giveaway. To enter, all you have to do is like their Facebook page.

So it’s been a busy week for me. I recently posted that we’re having a baby boy on my Instagram and we’ve been busy getting his nursery together! Now more than ever, I’ve been dressing in layers especially when we’re out running errands. It’s been pretty cold in North Carolina but I’m so ready for spring. Wearing this shirt was the perfect solution for me. It’s lightweight so I won’t get overheated plus the bright color makes me feel like spring is here! Wearing bright colors during the winter is all about balance. I love pairing this bright shirt with pants that are a neutral color, like these jeans.

Wow! I feel like February has gone by so quickly. It could be time or the fact that my husband and I have been so busy this month. For starters, we’re four months pregnant! You can head over to my Instagram (@_lifeisgolden_) to check out our announcement. We’re so excited! I’ll be posting our gender reveal soon as well. In addition, I’ve been working more and more on Queen Styles Boutique. Our spring collection will be available soon and we’ve been working so hard on it! I can’t wait for you to see it. The top below is one of the items that will be apart of the spring collection.
I love exploring new areas of Charlotte. These photos were taken in the beautiful Huntersville area.
