I just got back from attending a Bachelorette party in Miami and had an awesome time. I had forgotten how much I miss living in an environment that is so rich with culture. In Miami, the culture is in the food, music, and the way people dress, and talk. I started to realize how inspired I felt and wondered when was the last time I felt that inspired. I really missed having that inspiration. Before I started to go down that negative path of thinking, I started to think about the resources I have now that could inspire me. There are so many times we are waiting for a place or someone to inspire us but we have to realize that instead of waiting, we have the power to inspire ourselves. Don’t get me wrong, I think drawing inspiration from people and places is very important but there are so many other things we can be inspired by. It could be the sunset, sunrise, your loved ones or yourself. Together, lets make a habit of taking control over what inspires us. Feel free to tell me something’s that inspire you in the comments.
Don’t forget to follow me on my socials:
I hope you all had a great time celebrating the Fourth of July. Thank you to all who have served our country! I was on vacation in Hilton Head Islad, South Carolina (if you follow me on Snapchat you already know that). Vacation is exactly what the doctor ordered.
On the last night we were there, I wore black and brown. It’s always bothered me when people say black and brown don’t match. They do! They’re both neutral colors so they can go with any color and each other.
This was a pretty big moment for me. You all know that I had to have emergency surgery last fall and because of it, I have a long scar from the top of my rib cage that goes under my belly button. I have a scar on my back as well but I was really nervous about showing this one! I finally decided that I didn’t care. Scars are kind of like battle wounds if you think about it. I survived something pretty incredible and there’s no shame in being a survivor.
Here’s what’s wore:
When I saw this sheer dress I instantly thought about the glam that came with the 1940s. The sequins and blush color really make this dress stand out. I put a black slip under it (although) I can’t wait to pair it with other colored slips) and then put this burgundy collared shirt with it. This trench coat from Zara brought it all together.
Trench coat: Zara
Shoes: Old Navy
Vest: thrift store find
I LOVE the beach. I grew up in New York and Florida so the beach was never too far away from us. Now in the Carolinas, it’s quite a drive so I enjoy it whenever we do go.
Jean Jacket: New York & Company
Hat: I visited my Mom and scored this hat out of her old clothes.
