LIFE & STYLE // Rainy Sabbath in Lace

This weekend was another lovely one spent in the DMV.  This time for my bestie’s wedding!!!  But more on that later this week ūüôā

Sabbath was absolutely lovely.  Weather kinda sucked as it rained all day but it was also very relaxing and calming as a result of that as well.  I was able to finally visit RPC SDA at their new building and it was an amazing worship service.  I was truly blessed.  I pray that God continues to bless their ministry exceedingly and abundantly.

Oh yeah? What’d I wear….



Hat – Stolen from @colorbystyle / Light pink lace dress – Zara / Belt – Zara / Cognac pumps – Target (can you tell these are my faves? Lol)

It was definitely a great Sabbath spent with great friends in preparation for a great WEDDING!  More on that on Friday ūüôā

Love and God Bless,

BROADWAY WEEK // Chicago starring BRANDY!

Yup! ¬†Got the chance to go see another Broadway play in a week’s time. ¬†This time, went to see Brandy Norwood in the starring role of Roxie Hart in¬†Chicago The Musical.

Little known fact about me: I absolutely love Brandy as an actress. ¬†I’ve loved her since the days of¬†Moesha. ¬†AND one of my all time favorite movies is Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella starring Whitney Houston and of course, Brandy. ¬†She’s such a beautiful person, actress, singer, and just overall talent.

When I tell you Brandy played the HECK out of Roxie Hart….she did such an amazing job. ¬†I absolutely loved every second of her performance. ¬†And of course, the rest of the cast was great as well!

Brandy’s run in¬†Chicago¬†continues until June 21st¬† August 2nd!¬† So if you’re able to, GO!

Love and God Bless,

Style // Getting Fall & Winter Ready by Stepping B(l)ack

Well HELLO there! ¬†To you…and to the emerging fall weather *side eye*

I’m really trying to get into the cool/cold weather spirit you guys. Enjoying all my warm drinks and pumpkin spice flavored things…but…yeah…you guys know it’s not my fave time of year lol.

I’ve definitely been trying to remain positive about the upcoming months though. ¬†And helping along the way is the fact that….I’m embracing fall and winter style. ¬†Sweater dresses…tights…scarves…jackets….layers upon layers…maroon, mustard, and black.

I’ve actually always loved black shoes. ¬†They just…always made sense to me. ¬†They’re a neutral color. ¬†They go with everything. ¬†Always a good investment. ¬†Well I’ve definitely found 3 pairs of black footwear that will be in heavy rotation tis fall and winter season.

I figured a pair of flat, pumps, and booties would have me set for the season.

THE FLATS

I really am making a conscious effort to be proactive in fighting against the potential SADness that usually ensues during this time of the year for me. ¬†Staying cute is only one of the ways on my list….stay tuned….

Love and God Bless,
