Summer White & Stripes | CAST: Carlotta Macias
Friend! How are you? I hope your Tuesday is going strong! Mine feels super productive because I got so much done in the morning. You know when you check off your ten scattered, to-do lists you've made and you can finally move on with your life? No? Just me? Oh, okay. .... I am such a nerd, I love to make so many lists and I get such a high from checking the little boxes off! I know... I know... Just love me for who I am, okay!?
There were so many "not-so-fun" tasks I had to get done and I figured I'd better take the time to do them before it became overwhelming and I procrastinated. I really dislike how I feel when I do that, so small steps toward a goal cause big splash if you do them consistently! Look at me, so mature. Well, for today at least. I only say this because I used to be the worst procrastinator and never wanted to tackle the "difficult" things. I'm a work in progress, are you with me? Say, I! No one?
Okay, let's get to why you might be here for!
Do add some dimension to your dwindling layers by mixing patterns and textures in your clothes. I mixed some stripes with little squares on the skirt. And choose a textured skirt to go with the smooth striped shirt. Also, picking a tan shoe here created length to my short legs and gave the outfit a summer appropriate look!
NOTICE I am wearing two different shoes to show you how you can go from morning to night with this outfit just by the switch of the shoes. I had flats on this morning and can change into my pumps to go out at night! That is if you're a heel girl, if not, then don't even sweat it and keep those flats on girl. Slay them and you be comfy!

**Remember you don't NEED to have what I do to look beautiful. You probably can do this look with things already from your wardrobe, these are just guidelines to help you find your OWN style that works for you and your budget.
FROM MY HEART:
Oh my goodness. So much to share and so little space and time, right now. I just want to thank you first of all for all your support! Being here right now is giving me support, so THANK YOU! I couldn't do this without you! Just know that I always think about you, I pray about you and my motivation to do any of this is to inspire the living daylights out of you! I would love for nothing more than to inspire you to live so BIG and reach goals you never dreamt of. To dress and put makeup on to you BEST ability! Not just so that you can "feel" pretty! I hope and pray you FEEL BEAUTIFUL from within, and if you don't, I pray that you soon will! I hope that you do the hair and the makeup and the clothes as a exclamation point on your life. That you'd be so deeply rooted in the love of God that you'd not be bound by any of this "material" stuff, but that you would enjoy your womanhood to the maximum. Even the period days or struggles with menopause! All of it. You are my motivation. To help you be the BEST version of YOU is why I LOVE to wake up in the morning! Thank you! I love you! See you very soon!
