Weekend Wedding

Hi everyone! Last weekend I attended a beautiful wedding with my mom. The weather was perfect and the bride was gorgeous.

I purchased this shift dress a few days prior on sale and figured it was perfect for the occasion. An x-small would have been perfect but I'm not super picky when there's a sale going on. A simple belt cinched in some bagginess. Shift dresses are great for formal and semi-casual events. My favorite part about this particular dress is the lace detailing at the top and floral pattern; a perfect transition to spring.

Dress: Belk's
Belt: from another dress
Clutch: H&M
Heels: Charles Jourdan from DSW

"Prove It" Psalm 103:1-2 KJV

1."Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. 2. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits"

The Lord has done some many wonderful things for us, so why not thank Him? He appreciates our verbal gratitude and praises. When that moment is all said and done, we can't forget to show Him our gratitude. Usually if a person does something nice for us, we thank them but probably forget the moment and move on. Words are nice but actions speak louder. Let's put our thanks to action.When God blesses you, pay it forward and be a blessing to someone else. Our purpose is to serve Him and share His love. Don't you want share that feeling of love and gratitude?

Stay Chic!

Birthday OOTD

Hi everyone. I was blessed to celebrate another birthday this week, the big 2-0. Some people think 21 is a major milestone, but I think 20 is pretty awesome too. Unfortunately I had accounting class on my birthday, but I was able to spend quality to with my family and get a manicure (must-have).

The birthday weather was great, so I decided to bring out the leather pants. For some extra fierceness, I added my cheetah print top and tucked in the side to show the zipper detailing on the pants.

Top: Cotton On
Leather Pants: H&M
Booties: DSW
Lips: "Living Legend" by MAC

"Sincere Prayer" Matthew 6: 6,8 NLT

6." 'But when you pray, go away by yourself, the shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. 8. ...for your father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!' ".

We all have daily routines that we stick to, and prayer should be one of them. However, routines can become robotic and we don't want our prayers to be that way.Prayers should come from the heart with sincerity and honesty. After all He knows what we're thinking so there's no point in hiding. Often times life can get hectic (I can testify to that). Let's try to simplify our surroundings when we pray to weed out distractions. It's a time for one on one interaction with God.

Stay Chic!

Neutral Kinda Day

      Welcome! It's been a while since I've posted, but I'm still here. College life is quite the whirlwind, but it's all worth it in the end.
      When I'm in a rush and can't decide on an outfit, neutrals are my go-to. For this day, I choose a speckled cardigan and paired them with comfy booties.

P.S. Check out my red velvet cookie recipe for a sweet treat on Valentine's Day!

"Honey after the Hunt"
Judges 14:5-6,8 (NLT)

5 "...a young lion suddenly attacked Samson near the vineyards of Timnah. 6. At that moment the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon him, and he ripped the lion's jaws apart with his bare hands. He did it as easily as if it were a young goat. 8. Later, when he returned to Timnah for the wedding, he turned off the path to look at the carcass of the lion. And he found that a swarm of bees had made some honey in the carcass."

Last night I heard a sermon based off of this passage. The speaker spoke about facing our lions. As believers of Christ trials are inevitable. However, we can conquer the lions in our lives and come out on the winning side. God will turn our bad situations into a sweet blessing and testimony. He has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, LOVE, and sound judgement. Let's use our weapons of prayer and faith to slay our lions.

Stay Chic and Happy Valentine's Day!
