|Dress: Swaychic (old) Jacket & Boots: thrifted Tights & Bag: c/o Oasap Hat: JcPenney|
When I saw one of my favorite bloggers, Lauren, wear these tights from Oasap, I knew I had to get them! I'd have to say that out of everything I've received from them, these are probably my favorite item yet. I mean come on, those adorable rows of hearts are just so cute!
This sequin t-shirt dress is an old win from a giveaway, and I'm glad I finally wore it before the snow fell (that's right, it's snowed now). These photos were taken before that happened. I have to say, snow is lovely and beautiful, but when you know you have to drive in it, your feelings start to change. I'm still not the most experienced driver, and we don't have our snow tires on yet. I've slid a couple times already, and those are always breath-holding moments where I mentally freak out inside. Thankfully, I've been able to maintain control of the car!
So remember that character known as Mr. Scruffy? The reason I haven't talked about him as often is because I wanted to let the memory of him fade. Turns out we're better as friends. While we get along alright, I know that as a boyfriend, I'm looking for something more serious than what he's after. We parted quite amicably, and I feel like a weight has rolled off my shoulders now that we talked and broke it off. Of course, it was up to me to even bring it up (he was never assertive and left all the decisions to me during the short time we dated), and I'm glad I did. It was definitely tough trying to work up the nerve to get into that talk...but thankfully, we were on the same page. After a couple months of seeing each other, I still didn't even feel like I was in a relationship. There was no real connection.
Anyway, just figured I'd mention that. If you worry I feel sad about it, don't be! I'm actually quite content with how it turned out and am happier now. I know what I want from a relationship, and by freeing myself from this, I'm opening myself up to real possibilities again.
Don't think you're being arrogant if you refuse to settle - it just means you know what you want.
For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
