Being casual on this Monday! White has always been a color I typically wear year-round. I dismiss fashion rules on a regular basis & wearing white only “on-season” is definitely one rule I don’t abide by. Some people are scared to wear white denim, because they can be seen as either looking fab & amazing, or just awful. While wearing white pants, denim in particular, I try to keep the look simple & very minimal. Adding small & subtle pieces to a simple top makes this look good for both on the go as well as lunch with the girls.
Backpacks are such a trend right now. At first, I was kinda iffy on the idea of carrying around something I used in grade school- but I got this one and fell in love! So easy & hands free, I will for sure be purchasing more backpacks in the near future. This top is currently sold out, but all the deets on this outfit are below (some items are similar):
Just a refresher, Roma Boots is an amazing brand located in Dallas, Texas that gives back to children in need all over the world. Founder Samuel Bistrian started Roma in 2010 wanting to have a outlet which combined his love for fashion as well as his humanitarian efforts. You can read more about Samuel and the start of Roma here.
Fun fact- Roma, spelled backwords, spells amor– which means love. One of the main missions of Roma is to spread love to those around the world. Pictured below is Samual Bistrian (photo taken from Roma Boots).
What They Do:
Roma boots gives back to charity by donating rainboots to children in need all across the world. For every pair of boots that is purchased, a new pair filled with educational supplies is donated. In addition to this, 10% of all proceeds of Roma Boots goes to the “Roma for all” foundation. In addition to giving, Roma also participates in “Boot drops”, in which they partner with non-government organizations and actually visit countries across the world, giving boots to the local children- whether it be at a park, school, or simply children on the street.
Making a pair of Roma Boots takes about 45-60 days, and each pair is all natural rubber. Samuel is the lead designer of the company, while Roma continuously works with focus groups in order to stay on trend when creating new concepts, as well as also working with local artists to create new designs. Once a year Roma Boots hosts an event called “Day of hope” where boots are used as canvas and artists concepts comes to life on a pair of rain boots. These boots are then sold as limited editions, as only a few of them are made. One amazing thing about this company is the genuineness of their mission. It is very clear that the mission of Roma Boots is simple- to give back to those in need. The words below are from Samuel himself during our interview and are an intelligible example of everything Roma stands for:
“You can be motivated by greed or good. If you’re motivated by good and by love, everybody is going to benefit. Whether it grows or not,you will be remembered as something great. That’s what separates social business by money business- we don’t measure our success by what we’ve made but by the impact we’ve made on others lives. Hope and love is universal- that’s what we’ve been trying to achieve.” – Samuel Bistrian
Happy Wednesday! This week’s Wardrobe Wednesday comes from Mark 5:36-
“Overhearing what they said, Jesus said to him, “Don’t be afraid, just believe.”
I am such an overthinker! I worry, analyze, and overthink just about anything, from small to big, on a regular basis. Even though I know all of the amazing things that God can do, I still find myself doubtful sometimes and worried about future events and happenings. This verse is one of my favorites because the message is simple- “just believe” (worrying does nothing but cause wrinkles anyways).
This week, my challenge for you is to write down something, or a few things, that you’re worried about it on a piece of paper. This could be anything, big or small. Now- I want you to take that worry that you have written down and put it in your bible where this verse is- Mark 5:36. Throughout the week, whenever you start thinking about your worries- remember this verse. Just believe, pray about it, & keep on keepin’ on!
I posted this outfit a while ago in insta..but never made a post about it with details. Although I typically don’t wear super feminine pieces, I ran into this tulle skirt & just had to have it! Light pink has come a neural shade in modern fashion, and can be worn with either light colors to keep it feminine, or paired with darker colors for an edgier look. I chose to pair this outfit with a white crop and a pair of my favorite Kendra earrings, with minimal detail. Details are below. P.S.- These earrings are sold out, but I linked some similar ones that are on sale now!
When it comes to style, about 90% of the time I’m all about comfort! Overalls have been a semi-staple in my closet for quite some time now, and I must say I am very happy that they’re becoming more & more popular! Overalls have always in the past been seen as a “childish” piece of clothing, but more recently have become more fashionable and accepted among women of many ages! Standard denim overalls are great, but adding some pattern to them is a way to stand out among to overall wearers! Details below on this outfit, as well as some amazing patterned overalls (although these worn above are currently sold out), some of them on sale now! P.S- you can take a tank & tie a knot in it on the side to make sure it doesn’t look baggy under other pieces of clothing.
