Back in July I debuted Part 1 of my series on this awesome reversible satin bomber jacket from Topshop. I wanted to show just how cool and versatile it really is. Satin bombers have been everywhere this summer and if you’re going to try out the trend, here’s the one to do it with. Dress it sporty, girly, or a little tough. The choice is yours and the possibilities are endless.
Did you notice anything different about that second picture? Something a little out of the ordinary from my usual style? I don’t tend to smile too much or be silly in my photos but with this one I was. #CarefreeBlackGirl mode was activated.
I haven’t posted in a little while and the truth is it’s because I’ve been so overwhelmed with life. I’ve been working long hours and back to back days. I’ve had some issues going on in my personal life. It’s been feeling like everything is just happening at once.
I picked this photo as a small reminder to myself and anyone else to not forget your inner joy. I’ve been living on autopilot for the last week or so but in this picture I was just living in the moment.
If you’re like me and have been having a challenging time lately, hang in there. You’re not alone. No one’s story is perfect. Keep trying your best and if you can find the time to look great while doing it, even better.
