Off the shoulder shirts have been a popular trend this summer and definitely my favorite! I think I’ve purchased three off the shoulder tops back to back. However, this off the shoulder top with ruched sleeves from Charlotte Russe is probably my favorite. I’m obsessed with the sleeves!
I decided to tie a knot in the front of the blouse and pair it with the olive green, refuge hi-waist skinny jeans from Charlotte Russe. The top is a bit loose at the bottom and I wanted it to be a little form fitting to my body and to showcase the detailing of the pants. I love gold and I’m always wearing gold jewelry so the gold buttons to the pant, were perfect. To complete the look, I wore my white Athena sandals from Luxtrada and my rose gold sunglasses from Aldo.
Fall is coming but I don’t think I’m ready to put away my summer clothes just yet. However, I am ready for the season to change. I’m ready for change! Period. LOL
Lately I’ve been itching for change. Something drastic. Something different. Do you ever get that feeling?
A feeling like you need something different?
Sometimes us ladies think about changing the style of our hair. Whether it be cutting it short or changing its color. “New hair, new me.” But this feeling I’m talking about is like packing my stuff and just driving, exploring, or adventuring. Sounds dramatic I know LOL but every time I itch for change, it’s that drastic. One day I was so overwhelmed with everything in San Diego, I drove straight to Los Angeles after work. Driving has always been some type of therapy for me and LA was always my escape. There’s something about LA, the city, the bright lights, and the distance that just makes me feel calm. It makes me temporarily forget everything that I was dealing with back home. The small trip and little adventure allows me to unwind and just recollect. At one point, certain cities, places, even buildings in LA gave me anxiety. LA was always my escape city but when I moved there and back to San Diego, there was so much pain I left in LA that it took me awhile to find that peace again. How and where did I find that peace? God, my faith.
Someone asked me if I would ever consider moving back to LA and the answer is yes. It’s something I’ve considered but don’t know if I would just yet. I’m so happy in San Diego and everything is here, my family, friends, career, etc. Everything happens for a reason. If it’s God’s plan and his will for me to move back, he’ll make a way . I've learned my lesson of making impulsive decisions and trying to do things my way. Although I’m itching for change, I’m learning to trust God and the timing of everything. Doors of opportunities will come at the right time and at the perfect moment.
