Sheer.Goodness

Don’t worry sis…your time is coming

Patience is a four-letter word. In this microwave generation, we all want instant gratification. We hate delays, detours and small victories. There is nothing wrong with fast success but remember, Beyonce did not become Bey overnight. The Grand Canyon, one of the biggest tourist spots in the world, took 6 million years to form. Wether it’s a new business, new school, new relationship, new friendship or a new venture…it takes time. Just like no one likes a rushed, half-baked cake, no one will like something that you didn’t put time and effort into. Don’t rush your process and don’t give up because your time is coming…WAIT ON IT!

That’s my soap box for today, and I wrote it because I needed it as well. Now, on to this sheer look that I’ve been drooling over since buying this beautiful sheer Forever21 shirt two months ago. The blouse is SOLD OUT (tears), but I am linking some other fabulous sheer tops down below. Since i’m not that type of girl that wears a see-through top and bra, I layered it with a striped bustier underneath, a pair of flare-bottom trousers and a faux fur coat were added to finish the ensemble.

I Love these trousers because not only are the bottoms funky with flare but they are high waisted which means they sit at the smallest part of your waist and cinches in the rest. It helps give an hourglass figure. When looking for jeans and pants, try and find high-waisted pairs, especially if you are a thicker girl. My pants are from my favorite store TJMaxx but I linking a lot of great flare-bottom jeans down below. You can always do a tank-top under any of these see-through blouses or even another shirt…just layer it and have fun.

A Furry Situation

What does it mean to love yourself?

The other day a girl came up to me and told me that I had such great cheekbones and facial structure. I laughed it off and told her she must not see my double chin and fat cheeks. She just looked at me like she couldn’t believe I was saying that about myself.

After she left, I thought about the conversation. What would it have hurt me to just say thank you and happy that someone thought I was pretty. I should have been proud to be complimented by a total stranger. But I chose to point out my flaws so that she wouldn’t point them out first. I think sometimes we have a harder time seeing the beauty in ourselves than others do. Yes we have flaws, everyone has flaws; even the most beautiful people in the world have flaws. But, we don’t have to focus on them…we can choose to see the beauty despite the flaws

So, since this is the month of February, the month of love, let’s choose to love ourselves. Let’s choose to see our beauty and embrace our goodness. Comment below and let me know what you love best about yourself.

For me, the best part of myself, besides my mind, are my legs. They are not supermodel legs, but they get me where I need to go and they are shapely. Nothing brings them out better than an amazing pencil skirt. I found this Eva Mendes pencil skirt from New York and Company. I love the faux leather look and paired it with a simple blue off the shoulder top. This off the shoulder look is one of the top trends for 2016. I put on my favorite faux fur coat and these gorgeous Steve Madden jewel studded pumps.

Let me know what you think of this look and remember to comment below what you love most about yourself. Also, what are your plans for Valentine Day. I have a whole post on ideas for the day: Hello February.
