Hey guys! I hope you had a great week. Spring break is FINALLY HERE! I’m writing this as I’m on my flight to St. John. I’m super siked, can’t wait to snorkel my heart out, get a good tan, and eat some fresh island seafood! I got this romper from Dress Lily and I’m in love. I have to brag on my Dress Lily a little. I’ve been working with them since October and I haven’t received an item that doesn’t fit me perfectly. The products that Dress Lily provides are on point when it comes to being true to size, and this is something that is extremely important with online shopping. It’s safe to say I’m a proud Dress Lily shopper!
So anyway, back to the romper! I love the embroidery and low-cut neckline. I think it adds such a feminine feel to this look. I styled this romper towards evening wear, but you could easily dress it down with a moto or denim jacket and a solid color sneaker to make it casual and playful. I paired this romper with my Steve Madden over-the-knee boots, black clutch, and two toned gold/silver accessories. I finished it off with soft curls, rose toned eye shadows, and a coral lip to tie in with the floral detail.
Worry, worry, worry. WORRY. Do I need to say more? I can’t even begin to tell you the anguish, distress, and the best part….BREAKOUTS that this overwhelming emotion has caused me. Whether it’s school, the future, relationships etc. I can find a way to keep a stressful topic on my mind. The thing is, whatever it is you are worried about may seem threatening and detrimental to your life and it may cause change or discomfort. But the truth is, nothing ever ends up exactly how you play it out in your head. What I’ve realized within the past few months is that something that may seem bad can easily be turned around. I used to think that situations that I dreaded were just going to suck, no changing it. Now, I realize that opportunity and positive change can lie behind an ending, loss, and the word no. What’s awesome is that you get to choose how you look at a situation. If something doesn’t work out exactly how you wanted, it’s most likely for the best. If you don’t see it that way at first, take some time, recover, and sleep on it. I guarantee that you will wake up the next day, week, or month with relief that what walked out of your life allowed something else, something better, the opportunity to walk in.

Happy Tuesday babes! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I woke up Friday morning to look out my window to see snow on the ground so I figured it was fitting to share this Dress Lily jacket with you guys! For the fashionistas like me who live in a region where snow can last until late March, early April a jacket change up can be very necessary. I am absolutely in love with this quilted panel jacket, not only because it’s super warm and comfy but also because it is extremely versatile. I’ve worn this jacket with athleisure just as much as I’ve dressed it up with heels. If you’ve got a month or two left of chilly weather this jacket is smart spend. Even if it’s starting to warm up in your area I would suggest this jacket for next winter or a future ski trip! Seriously so warm and cozy guys. I paired this coat with a white lace-up bodysuit, dark skinny jeans, a rhinestone studded choker, and finished the look off with “Russian Red” lipstick by MAC.
What is conflict? This is something I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. I avoid it at all costs and if it becomes present in my life I will take every measure to prevent myself from seeing that person, being in a certain place, or experiencing that circumstance. By no means can I say that I’m the best at letting go of my pride and apologizing, but as I get closer and closer to graduation and entering the real world, I realize that conflict is something I will have to tackle every day. That doesn’t mean I’m going to have a huge blow up fight or major disagreement often. But I do think that I will have to stand up for my beliefs and morals, strongly support my ideas, and carry out multiple responsibilities every day if I want to reach my full potential.
You win some, you lose some. That’s just the way it is. Naturally I’m an introvert. Most of my readers already know that I HATE public speaking. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve sat in class with a good idea or comment but have left it unsaid due to my fear of being shut down. Lately, I’ve been challenging myself to put my ideas out there, share my opinion, and fight for what I believe in. It’s so easy to think of conflict with a negative connotation. But is that a suitable way to think of it? Some circumstances, yes conflict can be negative. But conflict can also end in positive opportunity, resolve, and compromise. I’m no longer going to think of conflict as something that will defeat me, but instead something that I’m strong enough to take a chance on and tackle. Hopefully something good will come out of it, but if it doesn’t I will move onto the next thing with hope that it will work out. It’s all part of the process!
