“A beautiful woman delights the eye;
a wise woman, the understanding; a pure one the soul” ~ Minna Antrim
You are beautiful. Yes you; and so full of wonder…
As women, our souls are so filled with doubts of self and the insecurities especially with the world’s, the media’s representation of the beauty, or simply the ‘ideal image of what beauty is’. Many of us have for so long fallen for the lies… we are constantly told to be perfect an as a result made to feel like we are simply not: beautiful enough, strong enough; tall enough, thin enough or simply good enough for anything.
I wish we all knew that these are just lies upon lies.
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” ~ Ps. 139: 14
Today I just want to remind you that you are beautiful, perfectly knit and beautifully created by your Maker. Yes, you are Wonderful, Unique and Set apart – and yes you are meant to stand out because there’s no other you; and remember, there’s so much more to you than just the physical aspects we see.
This post is really about feeling beautiful and boy did I feel beautiful in this number. The pleated maxi skirt in a champagne hue – Yes I’ll have that anytime. Have you noticed that maxi skirts are always in and each season comes with a different variation in style? Trust me I am a lover of maxi skirts, I have a good collection and I have to say that this new pleated trend had me in awe. The pleats, the colour, the style and pattern; and for me a midi skirt is not ‘so midi without the length’ (pun intended).
With the million possible ways of styling this skirt, all that ran through my mind yet again was ‘Simple’; so I went minimal on accessories and all. I am a firm believer that less is more and in many cases, it always works out.
The focal point of this outfit is the skirt, Of course, and that’s the reason why I went in with an all black top and I have to say I love the cold-shoulder thing happening here. I didn’t want to steal any more from the skirt, so I wore a small pink snake print clutch and Loubs (Degraspike). If you’re after a fun, classy and flirty look, then this is ‘IT’– Outfit goals to say the least.
Ok, let me stop here for today, but do let me know what you think. Don’t let the world pull you down because you were created to be great, you were created to shine baby.
Until next time; but till then, stay beautiful.
