Seeing Stars

Richmond is finally starting to bloom! Yay! You all know that I love to wear florals year-round, but over the past few months I’ve been super into stars & moons. Feeling those celestial vibes. When I found this tulle star number (which is actually a dress!) for $30, I just couldn’t wait to wear it. Originally this dress was floor length, but the amazing thing about tulle is that it’s so easy to cut & customize it just for you & your body. I decided I wanted more of a tea length style so I could get the maximum wear out of it. Obsessed with how it turned out.

Another way I’m wearing these celestial stars & moons is in earring form. The pair I’m wearing here are asymmetrical with one moon & one star. You might remember me mentioning them in my touch of sparkle post. They are just stunning & a great deal at under $15.

This Fun Look

When planning this post, I originally thought I wanted to do more of a fancy, glam look, but decided to go a different route. I find this look quite casual, care-free, & really fun to wear. My wrap top (similar here) was past down by a friend & is in a totally unexpected color for me, paired with a fun pale blue heel, blue shades, a patterned headband, & a bold lip. Of course, my favorite light wash denim jacket makes the whole look a bit more spring-y. I couldn’t help but smile in this fun outfit under this lovely blooming tree with the sun shining on my face.

End Of Winter Boost

I wanted to take a minute to share a bit of encouragement with you. Each & every one of us are experiencing different seasons of life. Just like the winter we are in is coming to a close, so will each season of life we face. If you are in a trying season right now, be encouraged & know that this “winter” won’t last forever. A new season is right around the corner, so don’t lose hope. Keep your head up, wear something fun to lift your spirits, & keep on keeping on.

If you are in a joyful season, soak it up! Take a second to capture that moment in time & be grateful for the season you’re in. Whatever season of life you’re facing right now, be bold & courageous. Don’t let what’s happening around you crush your confidence or squash your dreams. You are fierce, beautiful, & your future is limitless. So live that way & why not dress that way too, & encourage those around you to do the same!

Cheers to the end of winter!

Friday Five – Never Say Never

Hello Everyone!

I just got back from my NYC trip! It was amazing to say the least. I have so many fun pictures and stories to share with you, but they are still so jumbled up my head. While I’m sorting everything out, I wanted to share with you some bits of encouragement I’ve found recently.

I know it’s hard to have passions that are not the norm. I mean, I’m a professional dancer and a blogger, for goodness sake! Taking the risk to pursue passions such as these requires guts. It takes finding that inner voice (think…the little engine that could) that reminds you over and over, “I can do this.” and, “Don’t give up.” The struggle is real, am I right?! Constantly criticizing and comparing your work to other, is exhausting, yet somehow necessary to stay relevant and put your best work out there. It’s so hard to be original. To stay true to yourself and own who you are and what you stand for. There are days you feel like, “Does it even matter?”, “Does anyone even care?” But the answer is YES! If there is anything I have learned while pursuing these passions, it’s that if you’re willing to put the work into it, people with listen and your work will grow and thrive.

Time.

Waiting is the hardest part. Wanting results overnight just doesn’t happen. I hate that, don’t you? I want everything that I want right now.

Here is where the “Never say never” is most vital.

Never say it will never happen.

Never doubt your talent or creativity. It’s yours and only yours. No one else can do it like you can.

Never say you can’t do something.

Never let someone else define your limits.

Never say never.

You can do it.

Don’t give up.

Your dreams matter.

Give your passions worth and don’t shy away from putting in the extra work.

Be patient.

Surround yourself with people who can encourage you and lift your spirits during discouraging seasons.

To my fellow bloggers:

It’s so hard, especially for me right now just six months in, to keep the faith and keeping creating content. But I’m not giving up. This dreams deserve a fighting chance. I can’t wait to see where this blog takes me in the next 5 years. (Thank you to all of you who are here with me in the beginning! Love you guys!)

Below are 5 things encouraging me to keep the faith at the moment. I hope these can help refresh your drive and passion to continue creating awesome content. (Leave your blog URL in the comments below and I PROMISE I will stop by and show some love!)

Have you guys read this book or seen this show? Well if not, I highly recommend it! I’m currently watching it on Netflix and am only halfway through the season and I am already totally inspired.

5. Books

Love Style Life & The Way She Wears It are both so inspiring. Garance’s story and her since of style and fashion is deeply influenced by two big cities she has called home: NYC & Paris. She truly makes you believe that anything is possible. Dallas Shaw is a genius. Her book is totally helping me focus my brand (in terms of fashion) while making it truly unique to me. Life. Changing. Now, I haven’t read The Life Changing Magic Of Tidying Up yet, but while I was in New York last week, I met a lady who recommended this book to me, and by her description of it and the way she talked about it, I know I am going to love it. The main idea I took away from her description was this: “Does this (article of clothing) bring me joy?” I love that! What a great requirement for any wardrobe or any future purchase. Can’t wait to read this one!

What things inspire you to keep the faith and never say never? xx
