Blazer: Ann Klein :: Skirt: Forever21 :: Shoes: Dolce Vita :: Purse: Thrifted
This is a fun spring look that would be great for any business occasion. I love all of the beautiful vibrant colors. The spring and summer seasons are a great time to play with print and color. I also mixed textures when I incorporated this great velvet chained purse with the woven jacket. Ann Klein blazers always put me in the mindset of vintage Chanel and I think that's why I love her pieces so much. I've had this floral printed skirt from Forever21 for years but its still one of my favorites. All of the different colors create opportunities for a lot of fun mixing and matching. This week I've been studying a lot of different Proverbs and I found it to be both informative and relaxing. I've been focused on chapter three, verses five and six "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV) There's nothing that I love more than a great plan. I plan everything. According to my life plan that I created in high school I should already have a B.S. in biology from the illustrious Howard University and should be completing my first year of the neurosurgery program at John's Hopkins. I should be engaged and in the middle of planning a fabulous Old Hollywood themed wedding. The reality is that I'm now working on a B.S. in International Business Administration with a minor in psychology so that I can learn all that I can to create an organization that focuses on ending human trafficking and rehabilitating its victims, I'm single, and as far as wedding planning...okay, I'm still planning, but a girl can dream right? I've found the dress, venue, and everything in between. All I need is Mr. Right to fall into the beautiful cream dinner jacket, silk tie, and black tuxedo pants that I've carefully selected and my vision will be complete. I'm usually okay with a slight deviation in my plans but, my current situation is nothing like what I imagined it would be. I've struggled with letting go of what was and accepting what is to the point where I've missed out on a lot of great opportunities. I'm always praying for ordered steps but I often find myself trying to forge my own way. I can definitely wreak a lot of unnecessary havoc in my own life by trying to do things my way...and I mean A LOT of havoc. I'm slowly but surely relinquishing the reins of my life into God's more than capable hands and allowing Him to direct my path, and I'm confident things will be much better this way. Pray with me for grace to accept whatever may come or go, I mean I can live with changing jobs or even cities, but if I have to give up my dream of walking down the aisle in hand beaded Elie Saab couture I just may have to shed a few tears.
