Happy Wednesday guys!

I am so sorry for the delay! It has been a while since I last wrote a blog. I am telling you life has been extremely busy for me! I have been traveling, working super late, going to the gym, trying to keep up with my blogging and barely have time to sleep now a day because there is seriously not enough time in a day for everything I want to do!

So let’s try to keep this short and sweet but you know what happens when I try to do that? I end up talking longer. Either way, I hope you all enjoy this post as much as I love doing this shoot. This was taken in Santa Monica, CA. The weather was amazing that day and I had a concept in mind when I was figuring out what to wear. I wanted an outfit that is casual and sophisticated while going out walking in the city. Black and white came to mind because it is a great combination and it is such a clean look for photos in the city. They compliment each other very well and before there were colors, there was black and white!

Since it was daytime, I figured white jeans would be best pairing with a lace black top. Underneath, I wore a sparkly black spaghetti strap tank top that hugs my body to bring a glimmering look when in sunlight. I wanted the lace top to be loose on my body to create a more relaxed city look. With my jeans, I rolled it up to my ankles and wore black heels. These heels are adorable because of the bows on them!

Lastly, as you all know, I always have to have a pop of red when it comes to a simple elegant outfit. I paired it with a red Kate Spade cross body bag and of course, red lips 🙂 I kept the jewelry to a minimal because the outfit was sparkly enough.

With this outfit, you can wear it to brunch or even out in the city at night. I personally think you cannot go wrong with this combo when you are looking for something simple and sophisticated to wear. It is also a plus that the outfit is comfy! So what’s better than looking and feeling good at the same time?

With that said, here is my life lesson for the day about feeling good and letting go. Lately, I have been thinking a lot about my life and the past. I know that dwelling on your past is not a good thing to do because the past is in the past. If you spend time focusing on your past, you will always be a step behind. It will cause you to miss out on the present. If you guys are like me, do you catch yourself saying “what ifs” and then dwell on it? Because I know I do. While I was doing that, I noticed I’ve missed out on so many things that what was in front of me. Life will always go on and it will never stop moving forward no matter how much you want it to stop and freeze. So don’t lose your focus on your goals, don’t live with regrets. Regrets will slow you down, so whatever it is that is holding you back, forgive, forget and move on. The only time you should look back is to see how far you’ve come, things happened for a reason. It may not seem like they happened for a good reason at the moment but trust me; the grass is always greener on the other side. So guys, take a deep breath & let it go.

Till next time love,
