So I must be honest, I wasn’t feeling it, this shoot. Hard to explain because looking back it’s a beautiful day, lighting was cool and I had a good time starting this journey. However, in the back my mind I was unhappy with myself. I felt like I was sabbotaging myself. I had and have many reasons why I shouldn’t begin this blog. I wasn’t and am not my desired weight, I didn’t know how to begin fashion blogging while I understood I am personally equipped I felt defeated because I was not knowledgable…truth of matter is I am equipped with all that I need! And so are you! Let’s not Continue to let our hold outs be our hold ups! If we keep waiting for everything to be perfect we will wait ourselves out of our season to manifest and reap what belongs to us! Yeah, I made this inclusive because we are all linked, I know I am not in it alone and I’ve needed others to tell me that so I want to be the one to let you know…shake it off and keep pushing!
Now as I step off the soap box let’s me just say about this look…it’s a layered casual look that I love. We are having this crazy mild winter in the midwest so this H&M overcoat and layered plaid flannel and tee was a given. The jeans from Asos super comfy and hunny the always needed stretch was all I could ask for (LOL), and also on sale! These leather boots from Nine West are just everything to me! I mean comfortable and can be styled a million ways! Now as I will probably always state I am HUGE on accessories and all sorts of wild accoutrements!! Most times they will be the highlight of my look. Here I have on the lushious huge bangles from Jazzeez Jewelry. Again, check these shops out because they are having Great season sales going on now.
