I think it's safe to say that I'm utterly obsessed with shooting in vast spaces and that I'm developing a keen eye for the perfect backdrop to bring my personal style story to life. Luckily, I have an awesome photographer that shares my vision and captures the essence of the stories I intend to tell. It isn't the season for this hat or shorts but I woke up inspired by both so I wore them! My boyfriend says I look like a cowgirl, I prefer to just call it "Western".

I had, quite literally, about 5 minutes and 30 seconds to take some blog photos without being late for work but we were apprehended by this beautifully abandoned post office and we obliged. My Superbowl Sunday started with a groggy morning and a bad hair day met by the quickest blog shoot ever and sifting through and merchandising the most beautiful vintage pieces...and I got there on time! Here's to living on the wild side...

Happy February lovelies! Sabbath services in February at our church (and our sister church) are particularly special because we celebrate the different cultures of all nations throughout the month. This Sabbath the continent of Africa was celebrated through African music, traditional garb, food, and inspirational words highlighting the importance of pressing forward. It was beautiful! My printed headscarf and Patrice's colorfully trimmed blazer played as our small way to give a nod to the festive details you would see in the traditional African clothing. Yay or Nay?

Hey my lovelies! One of the most unfortunate realities of life is that misery love company. I often feel like I'm being judged for what I do and the decisions I make for myself. Even the things that I wear and school that I attend seems to be a problem to some people. If I wear makeup, I'm asked "Where do you think you're going?" When I'm doing my homework, I get comments like "Oh, Patrice  is too good to pay attention to us right now. She has homework". I'm a very sensitive person and I believe everything you say joking or not derives from some truth.  Even though these comments bother me, I'm choosing to believe some good can come out of any situation. You know how I've been saying you are in control of your life?!... You cant control things that others say and do to you but you CAN control your reaction. Being the sensitive person I am, comments like those could be a bit damaging so I do what I need to do in order to protect myself. I use that negative energy to boost up my confidence. If I wasn't seen as some type of intimidation to them, there wouldn't be anything to question about me. I must be doing something right! Now when I hear comments of that sort,  I'm at peace. I stay  silent  and  smile, which motivates me to just focus on what makes me happy and be that much better of a person that I can be.  Remember to take control and own your power because people will try to snatch it from you.
