First, can we talk about this sweatshirt?
I follow @theessenceof on Instagram and about flipped out when I saw this sweatshirt from her friend and designer, @tuttielu on there. I promptly emailed her and became the proud owner of one! (P.S. follow me on Instagram @fashionnettework) Another blogger and virtual friend, Yolanda of Yoyo's Fashions purchased one too and sent me pics of how she styled hers and I thought I would showcase hers as well.
Love the graphic skirt with the sweatshirt. Check out her blog, Yoyo's Fashions here
And here's my way:
I have met two readers of my blog recently (hey y'all!) and I always get sorta embarrassed. I wonder if they think that I look the same in person as I do on the blog, I hope that I don't come across as a dork, and I'm secretly wondering if we can take a picture together but I never ask! To Elaine, text me so we can go thrifting and to the girl at the gym (I'm sorry I forgot your name!) I hope I see you today, I really did like your Wu-Tang shirt and thank y'all so much for reading.
I know that on most visits I have a cheery anecdote for y'all or words of encouragement but I am unable to can on that today. I am never sure if I should post when I am not feeling my usual self but I want y'all to know that I'm human. It is hard in this life at times. I get frustrated. I lose heart.
I sometimes imagine my heart to be this battered and bruised little thing, still beating but maybe not as strong and resilient as before.
I don't expect anyone to understand my journey, it is mine alone
and sometimes it is best to go through it on your own terms.

And no one should judge another person's pain.
Staying positive, prayerful, and diligent can be a lesson in futility at times. Happens to the best of us.
