As I approach my 32nd birthday next month, I recently had a conversation with a friend about being self-aware and blooming where you are planted. We looked back at my personal growth story and walk through faith over the past few years. If you knew me 6 years ago, I was anxious, in a mentally abusive relationship, and lacked a lot of self-confidence. The woman you see today is strong, self-aware, confident and has mastered how to bloom where you are planted in life. I’ve learned that life isn’t always going to be filled with flowers but you can make the best with what you have in your garden.
So when my photographer and I stumbled upon this mural on Atlanta’s beltline trail I knew we had to photograph this for the blog. Atlanta is filled with murals around the city but this one, in particular, stood out to me. I love the abstract and bold flowers on this mural. They are a little rugged but they are standing tall and blooming.

It’s Friday, Friday! Time for casual Fridays. Many of you are headed to work today in a good mood because you are excited to wear your comfy jeans and casual tops. My current workplace has a pretty casual dress code so I can wear jeans whenever I want to.
It has taken me a while to find jeans that I love wearing a couple of times during the week. But on a recent shopping trip to Old Navy, I feel in love with this peplum top and pair of black jeans. I love that these pair of jeans can be dressed up or down. On Friday nights, I’m often headed to dinner with friends after work and this outfit is easy to dress up with a pair of black jeans and a cute clutch.
What are your plans for the weekend?
I’m back with another installment of my style series! It’s been a long week but I’m looking forward to winding down this weekend and hitting the town for some fun. This leather dress from BB Dakota is perfect for a girls night out on the town! The great thing about this dress is that it’s figure flattering and can be worn throughout the spring. It also has a little sex appeal but it’s classy as well.
