Recently I finished a book that helped me put words to the feeling I have always known about mornings. “The Miracle Morning” written by Hal Elrod is a quick but very insightful read. It gives step by step instruction as to how to maximize your time to work towards becoming a better version of yourself; it’s not a course, rather it serves as a guideline to develop disciple and habits for an overall lifestyle change.
What I enjoy most about white linen night is the style, it’s not the typical “free spirit” fashion fest we have become so accustomed to. White Linen night requires a more refined sophistication. Although, as the name suggests, linen is the fabric of choice for this event, most people opt for anything breathable. The options for putting your own twist on this are endless, but here are a few Chic Script suggestions.
Sometimes while reading I come across a teaching or a quote that resonates deeply, that feeling of “this me, I needs this” sets in and I spend a little more time applying the lesson to my daily life.
Two quotes that have stuck with me throughout the course are: "Nothing can hurt you unless you give it the power to do so." And "Teach no one he has hurt you, for if you do, you teach yourself that what is not of God has power over you. The two quotes about power struck a chord with me; often times in life we are put in situations that make us feel attacked and vulnerable and we act out in self defense and fear.
Quality over quantity is my mantra when it comes to my wardrobe and my style. . That’s not to say something has to be name brand or expensive to last or be good quality; but there is something to be said for purchasing quality over quantity. Which leads me to the idea of investment pieces, I choose to purchase quality clothing and accessories as well as bags and shoes, but I do so strategically.
Fall is in the air but if you live in the South like me it's going to be at least a few more weeks until the summer heat lets up. Living in a climate that is pretty warm all year round has its benefits but fall fashion is not one of them. Dressing true to fall in New Orleans doesn't really happen until late October and early November... so what is a girl to do when the bright colors of summer are no longer appropriate but the temperature is still too warm for sweater weather? This is the time of year I really get creative with texture and layers. This simple look below is a typical weekend look for me during this brief period between seasons.
1. Dress- Stick with neutral colors, not too light for fall not too dark for summer
2. Layer - Fashion and function, denim adds some grunge, but is a good "not so" casual alternative to flannel
3. Footwear - Heeled sandals are prefect for these in between seasons, gladiator are the prefect fall tease.
Dress: Forever 21
