Feeling Tough


Hello everyone. Leather oftentimes gives a tough vibe. Rocker, edgy, even raw. This peplum belt break away from the usual and rather morph into a softer and more feminine side. I think that a peplum belt is a fantastic concept. A girl can't get enough peplum in her life and the fact that it is not just another peplum top in my collection makes it even more fun on my part. 
Whoa, the weekend went like super fast. Dear weekend. I want to catch my breath sometimes you know. Aside from errands and doing some last minute fun things to do before school starts we also deal with a serious health matters concerning our love ones. I don't know what to say but I can only imagine what my husband and my in laws are going through right now.On our way home today as we are listening to this song on the radio that reminds as of someone we dearly loved, I can't help but take a glance at my husband and saw he's fighting the urge to break down. I stop talking and just squeeze his hands. 
 School starts tomorrow for my 3rd grader and he's excited. I am actually going to miss him being home all day just hanging out. Feeling tough and all but deep within me I am so not ready for him growing up so fast before our very eyes. I dreaded the day he will leave the house to go to college.

On a different note, my 8th year old is a good substitute photographer when my husband is not around.  He's my bribed photographer for the day. A chick-fil-A chicken noodle soup and waffle fries does the trick. A weird combo, i know. Tell me about it !

I hope your week is off to a great start. Happy Monday !

    1. Hi Kim, thank you for the kinds words. It is really difficult, my father in law is in his last stage of dimentia. If he's in the mood he can get into it but then again for an 8 year old the time span for patience is limited. Have an awesome week as well.

  13. Aww, sorry to hear about your family. Hope everything is ok. I love that skirt!! Black pleather is so sexy and I love that it has a peplum top. I agree, it definitely makes it more feminine. Love that you paired it with a more casual chambray shirt. Very nice contrast!
