Take me to the Tropics

Take me to the Tropics

Happy Humpday y'all! It may be a dreary, rainy wednesday here in NC but I'm day dreaming about being somewhere warm and tropical!! I met a lady yesterday at Sephora who literally sold her home, left corporate america, and moved to the virgin islands! I was like, "WOW you are so lucky!!" She said, "Anyone can do it, you just have to do it! Don't wait on something to make you happy, live life doing what you love!" Y'all I just can't stop thinking about this woman! Why do we feel like we have to have a job that we may or may not like, and do the same routine thing week after week, just to pay bills for things we probably do not "need" all the while, losing sight on what's really important in life! Whew! Anywho, speaking of those things I may not "need" I sure want all of these warm weather essentials, especially this Lily bag and Tory sandals!! Loves!

Casual Sunday

Top: Francesca's, Sunglasses: Ray-Bans,
Bag: Kate Spade, Sandals: Steve Madden,
Jeans: American Eagle

How is it that every single weekend seems to fly by?! Now that the weather is starting to warm up, I just want to be outside every chance I can! Brian and I have literally grilled out like 12 out of the last 15 days! Grilling out may be one of my favorite perks to warmer weather. But my other favorites are sandals and bright colors! Since the beginning of spring is usually up and down as far as the weather goes, it's not quite warm enough for dresses and shorts but not quite cold enough for jackets and boots, I find that its easy to incorporate these two things to kind of transition! It seems like every store I go into right now if filled with the most beautiful pastels, brightest of neons, and gorgeous bright colors! I can't get enough! I don't know about y'all but I'm welcoming spring with open arms!! Side note: Me and Brian are going to the beach for my birthday in April and I can NOT wait!! Sand, sunshine, and relaxation here we come!!

Black and White

Shirt: Old, Jacket: Kohls,
Boots: Aldo, Bag: Kate Spade

I hope y'all had a great weekend! Brian and I mainly stayed home and got things done around the house but Friday we did go see American Sniper, and it was amazing!! So many emotions leaving the movie theater! It is definitely a must see! I feel so bad that I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. Normally the only day I really get to take pictures is Sunday, and it has literally rained every single chance I have gotten! Although it was dreary yesterday, I did manage to take a few pics! I love this outfit! If you know me, you know I'm all about wearing all black. I think it's so chic, flattering, and timeless! I wanted to do something unexpected with this sweater rather than just wear an all black shirt underneath. When I put it on with this gingham blouse, I fell in love!! So perfect for a date night, church, or meetings! 

On a side note, I have just been feeling so determined lately. It is on my heart to tell you, that if you have dreams or things that you want to accomplish, NEVER give up! Dreams only work if you do! So work hard, work diligently, work like you won't be able to tomorrow, and work with purpose! God will give you the desires of your heart! Pray, work hard, and never loose FAITH in the promises that he has made for you! Hope y'all have a great week!!
