If you looked in my closet, you would see that it consists of mostly neutrals(Okay mostly black, but I’m working on it) It’s definitely my go to look for sure; colors that I gravitate towards because you have so many options to pair them with and they’re definitely just my “feel good colors”. Tonal looks or mixing of neutrals are all the rage this season. Lately I’ve been obsessed with the brown/black combo and although a lot of people are hesitant to mix the two, it’s a definitely approved in the fashion world.
An item that’s been seen everywhere is the classic leather pant. It’s definitely a wardrobe staple because you can dress it up or pair it down to a more casual look with a sneaker. These pants are amazing because they hold you in, in all of the right places and don’t have that awkward noise that you’ll find in some leather pants. I paired mine back to my favorite jacket of the season- this luxurious leather and fur combo that I’ll link below. It’s also on sale now, so get it before it sells out because it’s definitely a best seller on the site! Being a city girl, I’ve grown to love kitten heels, they give you that confidence of wearing a heel but also give you the ability to trek blocks and avenues on end! Mine were from last year but I linked a similar pair! Lately I’ve been obsessed with the brown/black combo and although a lot of people are hesitant to mix the two, it’s a definitely approved in the fashion world.

“What if it does work out exactly how you imagined it to be or greater? Entertain that thought”.
Many of us have become so programmed to think in realistic terms rather than hopeful ones. I recently came across this quote and it made me question how I was looking at certain aspects of my life. I’m often one to be more realistic than hopeful, most likely as a defense mechanism, but why? Being hopeful sets you up to send out that desire to the universe and allows the universe to work its magic in getting it to you. In allowing yourself to get excited about something happening and feeling that high vibration, you’re sending out positive energy, which, by the law of attraction, can only be returned. So stay hopeful, get excited about what you want out of this week and see the difference that it makes!
Every single person has an idea of how they want their lives to be. It’s human nature. The job, relationships, friendships, status, income.. etc. No one can plan their every move with their every anticipated outcome, it’s just not how life works. In the moment, yes the detours are disheartening but by shifting your focus off of the “what could have beens” and adapting to the present situation, you give yourself an opportunity to embrace the opportunities that you couldn’t have even imagined for yourself. If you’re finding yourself in a position where you feel thrown off the path you had envisioned for your future, do yourself a favor, take a step back and take in the new routes that have been exposed to you. If you look closely enough, you will be sure to find the advantages of this detour.
“Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable.”
I like this quote because everyone has a different version of unstoppable and I truly believe that every single person is capable of achieving their “unstoppable”. Whether that be career wise, relationship wise, parent wise, friend wise, money wise.. etc. It is in each and every one of you. At the end of the day, you are the only one living your life. You are the only one that can create the vision of how you want your future to look like, and YOU are the only one that can actually put the actions in place to get yourself there. Once you start believing in yourself, hyping yourself up and continuously giving yourself that pep talk to push yourself past any limitations you may hold, you truly can make anything happen.
Here’s to another Monday and another week to become the best version of ourselves that we can/ want to be. The thing that I love the most about life is that each day presents a clean slate to improve and better ourselves. So maybe there was an off moment, 24 hours or you just didn’t put yourself in a position to accomplish what you had planned to? That’s okay. Life isn’t always about being on point, but more so about making it a point to keep trying. So wherever you are on the path to your dreams; square one, somewhere in the middle, nearing the end, what will you do with these next 24 hours to push yourself further?
So I started rereading this book, Attitude Is Everything by Keith Harrell, because it’s a good book to just circle back to, to have a little check in on your attitude every once in a while. One quote that I think is really important is to “Understand the power of attitude”. Oftentimes we allow little, insignificant events to dictate our attitudes for periods at a time and it’s actually quite unhealthy if you think about it. I’ve now formed the habit of asking myself, will this matter in a few days? And if not, move on! Our attitudes are the basis for our relationships, how we work, the first thing others notice about us and overall, just set a precedent for our lives. Only you can control and maintain your attitude, so I think that being more conscious of the power that your attitude holds, is extremely important.
