Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was very nice as the weather was great on Friday and Saturday with a rainy Sunday spent indoors with my in-laws. While lots of good things occurred I had little motivation to blog or be on social media which is good and healthy as life is about each other and family no? So here I am putting this post together a few hours before post publish time which rarely happens. Normally I am working on Wednesdays post about now.
I am IN LOVE with this kimono I recently received from NewChic. As my second kimono to grace my closet I couldn’t be more thrilled as I don’t know why I haven’t invested in more awhile back but this will be a new favorite clothing item for sure. It’s the perfect length for me and today I choose to layer it over jeggings and a pleated back button up shirt dress I recently digged up from my closet. I dressed up the look a bit with some darker eye make-up and a statement ring.
This kimono has a cool drop when arms are lifted up, however you can note from the pictures that the inside of the kimono sleeve is very visible (seam and fabric) and while that doesn’t bother me it might some people. But I love it regardless.
Lastly before I end this post I want to admit that I finally shared on several of my social medias this post and afterward I felt an overall relief. I don’t get upfront about my fears or beliefs much, but I needed to be obedient and do so. 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God heath not given us the spirit of fear but of power and love and a sound mind.”
What would you rather be doing if you weren’t blogging? What did you do this weekend?
