Imitation of Life

(I couldn't decide what to wear to church so I took pics to decide. Which do you prefer?)
People get on the internet and start thinking that they winning.
What they fail to realize is that the internet is NOT REAL LIFE.

I get it. If your real life is jacked up you can be anyone you want to be on the world wide web. You can create fake dating profiles, you can use photos from 10 years ago when you felt like you were fine as all outdoors and use it on your school webpage or portray your life as all'at and a bag of chips. "Me and my boo just got back from *insert tropical location here* and we couldn't be happier!" 

Glasses: RayBan 5199
Hoop earrings: H&M
Gingham shirt: Ralph Lauren
Sweater: Banana Republic
Necklace: Garage Sale

But the reality is you and your boo borrowed the money to go out of town and your "tropical location" was, in actuality, Corpus Christie. 
 

 People get real ballsy on the internets too, sending virtual threats and subliminal messages all up and through cyberspace.
"I.will.knock.her.out.I'm.crazy."
*Said while clapping hands together in between each word.*
I don't subscribe to internet threats, it's so childish and immature to resort to that, plus crazy people hate to admit that they're crazy. Because they're CRAZY. 


In my experience, people who constantly have to prove themselves and pump themselves up online don't have a lot of power (or self-esteem) in their real life. Oversharing, cyber-bullying and plain ole lying is apparently alive and well and creating Facebook Feuds, Twitter Beef and Instagram Insults in millions of households right now!


 
God made the internet for good, not evil. Like for fashion blogs and Google so we can know stuff. Don't disappoint Him.
 

Denim jacket: Zara

I love both outfits and think you should wear one...wait...and wear the other. Both are gorgeous!
I definately get a vibe from some people's pages I read. I can discern when some folks are authentic while others are embellishing. When I encounter those types, I remember how important it is to stay true to myself.

I just posted a status about giving this morning. Basically saying how what you give to help someone is between you, that person and God. Not for FB likes. It just disgusts me. I also loathe at the ones that every five doggone minutes have to post about their relationship with Jesus...I sit there like..who you tryin to convince boo??

Nonetheless, I like both, but the all black and pink stood out to me a bit more.

And here I was thinking I was being too much of myself on the internets! Close the curtain and let's have the real you reappear its sometimes what I'm thinking :) I couldn't decide on one. Both are great looks I'd sport. Teacherish!
