Buttoned Up

 It's funny how when I was younger I used to hate dresses and preferred to dress like a tomboy. Fast forward to today and I much prefer to wear a dress over pants any day. A dress as cute as this one from Make Me Chic just falls perfectly into the realms of my dress wants and needs. I absolutely love the button detail along with the off the shoulder look. I wanted the neutral color vibes so I kept it that way and just added my fave cognac booties from H&M. I'll definitely be saving this dress for a night out as well since it can go from day to night; another plus for me! I hope you enjoy the look!

Motivation Monday

For as long as I can remember, I've always been a positive person. I've always been the type to be nice, play nice, and believe the best in people. I do know that I am a softy and at times I've thought that it made me weak; to no be able to as strong as others and let my emotions get the best of me. But as I've grown and gotten older I've learned that being an empathetic person is a crucial part of my existence. It allows me to sympathize with others and feel feelings that others can't or won't. I do understand that this isn't for everyone and so for that reason I've made myself steer clear of those who are opposite of me in the case that they don't believe in my character; that they see the negatives rather than the positives and choose to rain on my parade instead.
Being the dreamer that I am, I choose to believe in the unseen. I put faith in the saying "anything is possible" because it is. In this world there are two types of people; the dreamers and the "realists." However, you're not considered a realist if all you care to see and talk about are the negatives. Those are the ones that I stay away from because they'll tell me to be realistic when I'm choosing to be positive. I can be realistic sure, but I refuse to be negative. And in doing so they'll object to my thinking and say that I'm reaching for the stars. But that's the whole point of life, to reach for the stars, to go for things that you're scared to go after. If your dreams and aspirations don't scare you then they aren't big enough. "Don't knock the dreamers and lovers just because you're too weak to do either."
