If you know me well, you know that I am not afraid to wear colorful makeup, clothing, accessories or shoes. I love to accent chic looks with a pop of color and today I’m bringing you the dress that y’all have been loving and I adore it! So, here’s why color is great for the summer months. Depending upon your skins undertones, there are certain colors that make your skin look vibrant, dewy and youthful. I recently had a chance to collaborate with Mint Julep Boutique again and when I saw this dress, I knew I had to share it. This maxi dress compliments a variety of skin tones and hair colors. I paired my dress with a cute pair of sandals and yellow fringe earrings. When the dress is already a statement piece, simple but fun accessories are all you need. So, you may be wondering how you can purchase both items, well here’s the link:

This isn’t a fashion post, it’s a real life post. Social media is a blessing and it’s a curse at times. In reality, there are way too many people doubting themselves and striving to obtain things they see other people with on the internet. Everyone wants to be flawless, have the biggest house, finest car and nicest wardrobe. But, what do all of those things matter if you’re empty inside? The truth is, I’m not flawless and I don’t strive to be. I have physical scars and my skin isn’t perfect. I live my truth. I love who I am.
There are some people who always define others by what they do for a living and then the other half of people constantly try to minimize what people do. You know, the ones who never pay attention when you tell them what you do? So, if you listen to society, you’ll never measure up. I know that I am not solely who I spent many years in undergraduate and graduate school to become(a therapist). I am much more. Degrees are avenues to help us reach more people, but they should never define us. At the end of the day, I want to be an woman that is known for being real.
Whether I have 1 follower or 30k followers, I want to be someone who reminds people they don’t have to fit into a mold to be beautiful. We live in a world that constantly wants us to scream who we are and what we do for a living, but at the end of the day it’s who we are on the inside that matters. I challenge you, if you’re reading this…
Look in the mirror every morning and know you are worthy of love and worthy of all the things God has for you simply because you are His precious prize. Don’t allow the world to determine who you are. Keep your eyes set on the one who matters most. Our worth is found in our Father whose love never changes. You, my friend are loved, treasured and set apart… You are beautiful the way God made you and never let anyone tell you otherwise.
