Did you know your words can make or break you? Yes, the things you believe and say can make or break you? What do you mean Moji? I will tell you more, please keep reading…..
But first, Fashion! We have been having a fantastically nice and bright weather here and I can’t help it but to get out and about. I love all things free and flowing like tunics and kaftans for summer days and today’s look is not exception.
Out fit of the day!
For today’s look, I wanted to create a style inspiration that is weather appropriate (for summer) and one you can wear on the beach or casually. And for the look, I paired my scarf blouse with leggings and a fancy pair of bronze gold sandals finishes the look. For a fun addition and to create a mix of print on print look, I decided to wear this gorgeous print scarf and that is my look of the day.
This kind of look can be worn on the beach, pool side party, on a very warm day in the summer and just to relax at home.
If you are not a scarf wearer, you can loose the scarf and replace it with a hat instead. I have been loving scarves lately and I am wearing them a lot. If you love scarves, go for the very big ones, they are easier to style and in different ways too. Will share a video of ways I love to wear my scarves soon, please look out for that.
Fashion TIP Today ::: Leggings, Juxtapositions & Print on Prints
Leggings : Do you wear a long top / blouse when you wear leggings?
In my humble opinion, YES.
Why? Leggings are made with very light textured fabrics and they cling to the body especially the bum/butt. I believe wearing a long top will make you look classy. Always have in mind that there is a fine line between classy and tacky. Stay classy and fabulous always.
Having said that, you can wear your leggings whichever way you fancy. I do like to wear mine with long blouses/tunics/tops.
Juxtapositions : What is it?
This simply means creating contrast effect or balance. For my look today, I have created some balance or contrast effect. What this means is that the top is loose; free and flowing and the bottom which is the leggings is tight and clingy. This look is an example of creating juxtapositions.
Prints on Prints : How do you mix prints on Prints
Mixing print on print is so fun to do and there is no limitations to how you can mix print on print. You can mix your print on print like I did in today’s look. I wore a print blouse and also wore a print scarf but both of them look tied together.
The catch to mixing print on print is to connect both prints with a strong colour or one main colour. In this case, I connected my print on print with colour brown. There is so much brown on the scarf and so much brown on the blouse which ties both pieces together. To tone the prints down, I wore plain leggings and a gold / neutral tone jewel sandals.
Motivation for Monday :: Choose Your Words Carefully
Like I said above, the words of your mouth or your mind can make a break you! What do I mean by that?
In the physical for example, you may have seen or heard this simple line before; “whatever you say or do may be used against you in the court of law”. What that means is whatever you say may give clues to the offence you have committed and could or will determine how you will be judged.
In the Spiritual, it is the same thing; when you speak or think negatively or live in doubt or unbelief, that is what will happen in the physical. If you are one whose words are always negative, you will always get the outcome of negative and if you are one whom despite the hardship you may be going through stay positive, you are most likely to come out victorious.
Instead of focusing or dwelling in “negativeville”, why not move your state of mind, mind set or believe to “postiveville” so you can begin to experience tremendous victories and testimonies.
In most cases, it is always super hard to remain positive when things are tough, not going as planned or when we fail. As hard as it may be, you can do simple things like…..
1, Be thankful for the things that make you happy e.g family, friends, what is going on well etc.
2, Be hopeful that what you are going through is but temporary
3, Pray and be expectant for upliftment, breakthrough and victory
4, Wait: this is the hardest thing ever to do but when you do, change will eventually come
5, While waiting, pray, be expectant and change will come.
As from today, be mindful of your words; For example, instead of saying I am ruined, say all shall be well with me and that is how it will be for you. Instead of saying, I can’t do it say with God on my side, I can conquer the world. This principal is applicable in all works of life. Follow it and you will be victorious. So as for the post not to be too long, I will stop here and will continue next time. May be some day a compilation of this in a book. How about that?
I do hope you like the look and I hope you are inspired by it. Like I said, this could pass for a beach style, a pool side party and any where you like really.
I want to thank you so much for stopping by today. I am always very happy to see you stop by today. Wishing you a an amazing week filled with positive vibes.
Much Love, Mojisola
