Nude Cord Lace Shirt /// Nude Dreams


There's something dreamy about nude shades. More so for nude lace. It's like a barely existent color. I love how it pairs so well with every other color and doesn't impose itself. I wore this nude cord lace shirt with my floral skirt and even coworkers didn't recognize this skirt I've worn a lot. Some thought it was a dress.

Green Ankara and Lace Top


I've been thinking about Ankara a lot. The thought crept up on me that I haven't got much Ankara pieces in my wardrobe and I've been thinking about adding more and more Ankara pieces to my wardrobe. I wanted something that I could wear for everyday. I think I'll save more elaborate styles for later on. Right now simple everyday Ankara tops, like this green lace detail one I have on, are what I'm itching for.

Work Outfit and Expectations


I think we hurt because of what we expect out of life, people and things.
If we expect a dress to last until, say, we pass it down to our daughter and it doesn't we hurt.
If we expect that we'd be our own bosses, or making six figures before the age of 30 and we don't we hurt.
If we expect that we'd be snuggled with our forever-ever-after in our own home with 2.5 kids, a dog and a picket fence at age 25 and this doesn't happen, we hurt.
I think that most things that hurt us do so because of what we expect out of them and I'm also aware that it seems we need to expect some teensy bit out of life in order to live a certain way, but I try not to expect too much of people and things because firstly, who am I to expect that life, people and things would go the way I want them to go.
I'm learning to change my vocabulary from "I expect" to "I hope"
For instance, after last night's rainfall, I hoped it wouldn't rain today and thought it a good opportunity to wear this light. breezy red shirt instead of black, you know, just to brighten the day.
