tasteful teal

March 14, 2016




My Outfit Details: LONG SLEEVE Teal Shirt (similar linked from the same retailer) // BRALETTE White Lace Bralette // SHORTS White Chino Shorts (only $25!) // SHOES Floral Lace-Up Flats (still on sale for under $45!) // PURSE Beige Crossbody Bag // WATCH 'Georgia' Fossil Watch // EARRINGS Orange Kendra Scott 'Elle' Earrings // BRACELETS Initial Charm Bangle & Birthstone Charm Bracelet & Heart Charm Bangle & Anchor Charm Bracelet // NECKLACE Delicate Gold 'Providence' Necklace

Life doesn't always go according to plan, and I am suddenly bombarded with that realization every now and again (and more frequently than I would like to experience). Take this weeks outfit photoshoot for example. My photos were accidentally taken in some odd setting on my camera, and only a handful were salvageable for each post that I have lined up this week. In moments like these, I am always reminded of Proverbs 3:5-6. It states, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Even though I am 100% positive that God was not the reason behind my messed up photos (the more likely culprit was human error), I am still reminded in moments like these to just trust and to not give into my frustration. I know, easier said than done, right?

 This verse has been popping up at the most random places lately, and I know that God is telling me something. This is such an interesting and unique time in my life. I graduate in less than two months. My seventeen-year streak of being a competitive athlete ends. I move back home to complete my teaching credential {of course, after I hopefully get accepted to at least one of the two schools I applied at}. 

Man, is this a transitional time in my life or what? 

I have found that during transitional and change-filled periods, anxieties, doubts, and worries often rise. And that is often a fact that holds truth for just about everyone. Some that are on replay in my mind are: "What if I don't get into a teaching credential program?" / "Time is moving so quickly, and how do I cherish every moment before graduation arrives?" / "With graduation comes the arrival of student loans...Why do I have to start of my career in debt?" 

But, as I have been gratefully learning these past few months, God's plan is alive and well, and because of that, everything will be okay. Even if it doesn't seem like it. Even if you are on your knees crying. Even if the world feels like it is ending. Even in moments like these. All will be okay. Rest in the ease that God handpicked the plans and callings that he has aligned for you. Rest assured, what ever is meant to be, will be, as He promised. 

Have a blessed and lovely Monday!
