I have to apologize for my lack in content but the past few weeks have been extremely busy in my personal life. I wish that I could say I was busy solving major problems like the cure for cancer or helping achieve world peace but instead I was consumed by my employer’s need. In addition to my corporate job I was also catering to the needs of my family and friends. In between all of that I was desperately fighting for some me time to replenish my strengths.
After much contemplation, I made a choice to get back out there and create more looks to inspire others. For those who have been keeping up with the blog you already know what happened to my camera but for the new readers, let’s just say I was terrified to shoot on my own (using a tripod). I quickly realized that this fear I had of breaking my camera again was simply an excuse driven by failure. I kept self-sabotaging my dreams for no reason. The fear of the unknown is an extremely scary place to be in. Luckily I fought through my own negative thoughts and made a conscious effort to get out there.
I read somewhere this quote;
“If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not BIG enough”
When I looked deeper who actually said it I was surprised to know it originated from Africa’s first woman president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. It was reassuring to know that my feelings of fear come from a good place. It’s completely natural to feel this way. The trick in this life is to not let it make you stagnant.
For this look I chose a chunky knit sweater with a leopard print slip skirt. Lately delicate fabrics such as these are being worn outside the bedroom and I kind of like it. I am obsessed with my shearling jacket from Top-shop especially because it is incredibly warm. I wanted a simple cool chic look for the day.
