Shout out Stassi Schroeder – Vanderpump Rules star and owner of Nation Outfit Of the Day aka #OOTD Day – for the motivation behind this post. Although today is not June 30th, which is National #OOTD Day, I decided to share my outfit of the day anyways! There’s nothing wrong with feeling yourself and loving your outfit, so why not make a post about it? No shame in my game!
Check out my #OOTD:
I’ve always been OBSESSED with wrap dresses. Definitely a signature look of mine. Very flattering and effortlessly professional. 💁🏼♀️
Bloody Shoes 💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋
Sexy vibes with the Christian Louboutin Black Booties! *these are bloody shoes* Cardi!
Accessories Make the Look!
Gold hoop earrings, classic David Yurman bracelet, pink Hermès cuff, and my favorite vintage Alpina Aviators.
And Colorful Nails to Welcome Spring!
That’s my #OOTD, babes!
This is your reminder that you’re a boss, you’re beautiful and loved ❤️ Slay the day tomorrow – wear an outfit that makes you feel confident and something that YOU love. Tomorrow will be your day; you will achieve anything you set your mind to.
I don’t know about any of my readers out there, but today just was not my day. I just started a new job — today was my second day — and don’t get me wrong, I love it and am thrilled for the opportunity, but it for sure can be overwhelming starting a brand new step in your career. Not feeling like I know what exactly I am supposed to be doing or if I’m doing it right at all, wasn’t exactly a huge boost in my confidence. I am not used to doubting myself in my work! On top of that, my evening didn’t start on a great note either. I got in a stupid and petty argument with someone close to me, and that definitely bummed me out.
As we get older, I’m definitely understanding life gets more difficult and we must take time to find happiness and positivity in the smallest moments and interactions throughout our days. I graduated college in May, 2017, so naturally I am not around all of my girlfriends I grew up with as much. We text everyday, but sometimes it can be easy to let the distractions such as stress at work and random arguments, get us down. So tonight I decided to take a step back, go to the gym, and write a random blog post about 5 things I love about myself right now to remind myself of the amazing person I am. I hope anyone who reads this tries this practice with me!
Have no shame in your game, it’s the #FGGW Lifestyle!
5 Things I Love About Myself:
I love the diversity amongst the people I am friends with! I have friends who I go out and get drinks with, I have friends are over 25 and never had a sip of alcohol in their life, I have friends who are Research Analysts’ and Financial Advisors’ and I have friends who are Models. I love that consistently throughout my life, I have always had a special way of connecting and vibing with almost anyone I meet 🙂
I love my abs, LOL.
I love how much my family and my parents especially mean to me, and how much of an effort I put into spending time with them.
I love my taste in music and the fact that I only listen to REALLY hood rap.
I love that I have such a big heart and really would do anything to help anyone who ever asked me for help or needed someone to talk to.
So if anyone else is having a bad day, or even if you’re not — please think of and remind yourself of 5 things you love about yourself today. I promise you can 🙂
7 Rings by Ariana Grande Exemplifies the #FGGW Lifestyle!
My cousin recently texted me the song “7 Rings” by Ariana Grande via Apple Music, including a message saying “this song reminds me of you.” Immediately upon listening, I was obsessed.
The song has so many amazing lines that humbly reminded me of the mindset and message I originally created this blog to send:
Quotes from 7 Rings that are Important:
“Been through some bad sh*t, I should be a sad b*tch Who woulda thought it’d turn me to a savage?”
Meaning: Although Ariana has been through A LOT, she never let it get her down or change the way she thought of herself. The bad things she went through allowed her to come out as a stronger person.
“My smile is beamin’ (Yeah), my skin is gleamin’ (Is gleamin’)”
Meaning: Ariana is proud of the things she loves about herself and there is nothing wrong to speak of them! Practice self-love and confidence.
“Wearing a ring, but ain’t gon’ be no “Mrs.” Bought matching diamonds for six of my b*tches”
Meaning: Ariana is not obsessed or worried with finding a guy to marry or “complete her life.” Instead, she literally went to Tiffany’s with six of her BFFs and they all got matching engagement rings with each other. Talk about #FGGWGoals
My favorite line is: “You like my hair? Gee thanks, just bought it.”
I love this line because I have worn extensions for years now. Before it was something I felt embarrassed about, but now like Ariana, I own it.
No shame in my game.
Don’t wait for someone to come into your life to make your dreams become true. Dreams become reality with the right mindset! If you can see it, you can believe it. Only you are in charge of your future, so be a boss and get to it!
Love yourself, be the person you were born to be with no shame in your game, own who you are and live your life with happiness without worry about what others’ think. Never compromise who you are to impress or please another individual because you are AWESOME and there is no one else like you on the planet.
