What the? Wednesdays....

Hello Luvs,

So, I am finding it hard to get this out earlier in the day. The weather has been heavenly, and we have been trying to take advantage before the rain comes. It will start coming a bit tomorrow. I should be more disciplined...but I am not. Well, at least for the next few days.
Luv my new app...collage city!

Before I explain why I am not sharing a throwback picture I thought I would touch on how this week has made me feel guilty. I know how often we take family vacations, (which is not often) but I still feel bad that others are not in a position to ever take a family break together. Tough times lead to tough decisions. Whether or not you pay the light/water bill, put food on the table, or be late with rent. These are choices I have had to make. I know many are in that place right now even though they work just as hard, or even harder, than I do. With the joy and bliss I feel I remember that others are not so blessed in this moment.
The dreamy jacket that started
it all.....

Because of this I have decided that as a family we need to do even more. Helping others in your community and the rest of the world should be on everyone's bucket list. After deciding this my heart feels less heavy. Anyone who knows me will tell you where I stand in regard to helping the lessor than. I have been in their position, and I recognize the need....

Comfy tee and bright red
skirt complete the look!
Ok, that being let out I will now explain why I am using my current finds in today's 'What the?' blog. Simply put, I forgot to bring a picture. It is as simple as that. I will be back to sharing them next week. For today I am modeling a grey t-shirt with chevron strips, a bright red skirt made for twirling, my fav black boots, and a red motorcycle jacket (which I have worn everyday) which I also picked up here.

Bring on the stripes
It is really important to be able to express our personalities in what we wear. Because we change and grow our style tends to change along with that. It is such a glorious thing to be able to do. Rocking something to show off your arms pr legs......the cashmere sweater that brings out our eye color...the blouse that shines along with your dark skin.....or that jacket that makes you feel both warm and bad*** the moment you put it on.
Breeze and twirl ready....

Being able to do this is unique and in my opinion necessary. The world is full of restrictions, rules, and standards. Fitting into someone else's opinion and box should not be our priority. You might think that it is easy for me because I am an artist. In some ways it is, however I know people who teach and run companies among other things. What you do to express yourself does not need to be the same as are your canvas and it works better for you in your situation. It could be something as functional as your socks or bag. Baby steps are pretty easy, and you might realize very soon that it is fun to change up your hair, earrings, and bags. I know from my time doing wardrobe consulting that what helps you succeed is taking that first step. If you need a steady hand to help you do that reach out to me and we can set up a video chat.

The finished outfit once paired
with my fav boots and plaid socks.

Til next time,
