As the days of Quarantine continue, I am 1) still all about the comfort, but 2) very much so missing the days of getting dressed up, SO here’s a combo! Leather Harem trousers are that perfect in between of comfort and looking put together. I paired mine with a white corset top and platform sneakers but I would also suggest a cute t-shirt or tank for a more casual look. Harem trousers (pantaloons) were seen in the Middle East first, but officially introduced by Parisian designer, Paul Poiret back in 1910. In light of recent events, I wanted to highlight one of many fashion trends that have come from African American roots. At the time, the Harem pant was considered a controversial way of introducing trousers into a woman’s wardrobe.

Now, more than ever does the world need more love. All I want to say to everyone right now is to just be kind. It doesn’t matter what color your skin is, what religion you practice, your sexuality.. etc. We are all human beings and we all deserve to live in a world full of love. The power of kindness is so strong. It could make all the world of a difference in someone’s life. Today I motivate you to make the active choice to just choose kindness.
“Visualize your highest self and start showing up as her”. This is a quote that I truly live by as much as possible. There’s absolutely no way that you are always going to be feeling your best, looking your best or acting your best. It’s important to recognize the days you’re not feeling your best and to take action right then and there. Rather than to wallow in your sorrows, Show up as your best self, do things to get yourself to where you want to be. Visualize the greatest you that you can be and don’t stop making the moves until you get to where you want to be. Some of my go to remedies include meditating, journaling, taking a walk, reading a good book/ podcast and throwing on my favorite music!
Another new week to look forward to! I wanted to leave you guys with a little insight on faith today.
A lot of people think that they need to be at a certain place in life, or that they need to hit a particular milestone by a specific age, based on how others are living their lives. With the influence of social media and added pressure from society, it can definitely be hard to figure out what the next best step is for you personally. Each and every single person has a unique journey that they’re meant to embark on, so it really cannot be compared to anyone else. With that being said, sometimes the best things in life aren’t the ones that you plan.
Whether you believe in God, another spiritual figure or the universe, I truly believe that there’s a greater plan far better than any of us could think up for ourselves. Sometimes you just need to trust that higher being and have faith that things will work out just as they should. I’ve personally found that when I give up stressing over the outcome of a situation and allow myself to fully put my trust in god and the universe, the blessings start flowing in. So for those of you who are not getting what you think you want right now, just remember that there is a greater plan for you and that it’s going to take a lot of patience and a greater amount of faith.
