The calmness I felt after my quiet time early this the morning was what drew me to this “statement shirt”. The purity of the shirt feels exactly like what I felt inside.
Inside of me, I felt a sense of calm! It was the Calmness in my heart that led me beside the still water(s) at this location for photos. The location was quiet, peaceful and calm just like I felt inside.
Please pay attention to the photo story; It is as calm as I felt inside and as calm as the look and the location.
In the photos, I positioned myself still in tranquility and poise with no movement whatsoever showcasing the beauty of nature.
My look today is a casual glam one. I paired a dark blue wash denim with a clean, crisp, pocket detail and belted organza white shirt and simply finished my look with an open toe vamp booties.
This is a basic look but dressy enough to take you from day to night. Basics are those wardrobe staples you can reach for any day and anytime and still look very well put together.
So as for your basics not to look too bland and casual, go for blouses with details like I have on. You already know that heels dress up any causal look right? Of course these are suggestions, always do as you please with your look.
Motivation for Monday ::: STAND
Recently, I listened to a Donnie McClurkin song titled STAND. You may also have noticed my title which is “standing in basics”. The song inspired the title and inspired me to meditate even further. After my deep meditation, I stood there and was calm in awe of God’s love.
The Lyrics of the song were very powerful and in my mind, I thought this will be encouraging to someone. Take a moment to read below……
when you’ve done all you can; And it seems like it’s never enough?
And what do you say; When your friends turn away, and you’re all alone?
Tell me, what do you give; When you’ve given your all, and it seems like you can’t make it through?
His word of Encouragement is to…..
Well you just stand; when there’s nothing left to do; you just stand
Watch the lord see you through;Yes after you done all you can,
You just stand
There are 2 more verses on the song but I feel like the above was enough encouragement.
Listen, no matter what you are going through be it your health, finances, heartbreak, car repossession, debt, marriage break down and more. Take a moment to pray and see what God will and can do for you. Leave everything to Him and in His hands and He will see you through just like that song said…….
I encourage you to just stand, breath, meditate and watch God see you through. Trust me, you will be fine and you will stand again. Take a moment to JUST STAND.
I truly hope you enjoyed the photo story and the styling of this casual glam look. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
Do have fun with styling your own basic pieces. Make your look all about you, that is what style is; a representation of who you are and not what anyone else thinks you should look or be like.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I am always very happy to see you stop by. Wishing you a fantastic day today and also strength to stand when trouble comes for those who need it.
As always, it is much love from me to you.
