Growth

I know it’s been a few days since my last post but I have been trying to get things settled since I made my big move…. What move you might ask?... Well,  remember I told you guys I had something super exciting to share in my last post here it is….. I moved to New York City. Since arriving here, I really haven’t had much time to sit down and blog. I’ve been ripping and running around trying to get everything settled and squared away. Although my things are still kind of stored away in my luggage, and I have shoes piled in a corner that need a place to call home, I am truly loving everything this city has to offer and I’m excited to hit the ground running. I won’t lie, as many times I have visited this city it’s definitely a different feel when you call it home. I always knew I wanted to return, after working for CBS a few years ago. This place just captivates you and forces you to be about your business because no one else really will. I say all this to say… go out there and make things happen for yourself. If you’re not satisfied where you are in life, CHANGE IT! People never grow in comfort zones. It’s when we take a leap of faith, risk it all, that our dreams start to come true and we start to see the potential we have within ourselves to conquer our fears.  Just do it! Stop evaluating the shoulda, coulda, woulda’s and just do it because life is short, very short and we all only have an allotted amount of time on our clocks to make all our dreams come true. Now, don’t get me wrong you will have some ups and some downs but it’s all a part of the journey.

Black-n-White



I’m back… I know I have been M.I.A for about 2 weeks, I had been battling a cold that had me out for a few days. All I was eating was chicken noodle soup and lots of orange juice. I think it’s the change of the seasons that had me under the weather. I’m feeling a lot better now still have a sniffley nose but I managed to take some time out to shoot a few pictures the other day. Blogging always seems to make the day better even when battling a cold.

On the flip side of things, I picked up these killer Steve Madden booties about a week ago. I was so excited when I  received them in the mail, because I was kinda  stalking the site since their release. Don’t judge me! Their rugged, have a great platform, and lace up past the ankles. My kind of bootie. Not to mention they scream PUNK! Which is normally not my style but it’s always good to switch things up every now and then. I have some exciting news to announce in the next few days so stay tuned for what’s to come. In the meantime, in between time enjoy today’s post.  Xoxo

Honesty


Before us lie two paths- honesty and dishonesty. The shortsighted embark on the dishonest path; the wise on the honest. For the wise know the truth;  in helping others we help ourselves; and in hurting others we hurt ourselves. Character overshadows money and lust. Trust rises above fame. Honesty is the best policy.

Risk Taker


What was a life lived if it was only lived in fear….

 

I recently stumbled across this quote while perusing Tumblr the other day and it immediately got my wheels turning. Whenever that happens I pick up the phone and call my bestie so we can discuss it. It’s always great to have someone you can call for anything and he is definitely that person. As we discussed what the quote meant it got us both into a deep conversation. Life is meant for risks and it’s through risks that we truly gain an understanding of who and what we are made of. Fear is the illusion that sets in our minds saying we cannot take risks, because it’s far to dangerous. By overcoming fear we can conquer our minds.  Thus capitulating ourselves into a fearless mentality. We have to conquer our minds.

I say this because there are so many things in life that you and I would love to do, that we are just too scared to do. What if I lose everything? What if I don’t have any money? What if he or she leaves me? What if… What if… What if…..? Fear of the unknown.  You and I have every tool necessary to be happy, all we have to do is find and use them. What if you lose everything? Well, that’s the joy of learning and starting over. What if you don’t have money? Well, that’s the joy of channeling your inner talents to provide a source of income. What if he or she leaves me? Well, there are 7 billion people on Earth I’m sure you will meet someone better.

A life lived in fear is really no life at all. Take risks guys and enjoy the journey along the way. I am!

B-Boy Stance


As I began posting these photos today Cassidy’s old song ‘B-Boy Stance’ immediately came to mind. “Chillan in the club in my b-boy stance…. lol lol “ Isn’t this throwback Jordan jersey everything? I wanted to switch the vibe up a little so I threw on some J’s and a snapback and called it a day. Seriously this is probably the most comfortable outfit I have ever blogged in. Shoootttt…. I could get used to this. Maybe not… but for now it’s a nice little twist.

Top Hats

When I stumbled upon this hat a few weekends ago I knew I had to have it. I mean come on look at how awesome it is. Although this is definitely a Fall/Winter piece I thought it would be kind of cool to jazz up this outfit. You guys will definitely be seeing this quite a lot throughout the Fall and Winter so don’t be mad if it shows up quite a lot in posts to come.
On another note, this weekend is Labor Day weekend whooooo hooooooo!!! I don’t have any concrete plans set but I’m definitely excited to see what the weekend has in store for me. To keep up follow me on instagram @MsStarStyles. Toodles….

Layered Flavors


With Fall right around the corner I’m loving to play around with layering. The possibilities are endless and it’s definitely a great way to get the most use out of your wardrobe. While I’m still not ready to completely say good bye to summer a layered little number like this will be all the Fall I need.

Simply Flared

Can I get an amen for this sheer flare skirt. I immediately fell in love with it . Full, flare, a touch of sheer, comfy all the things that make this the perfect piece. Not to mention, this bad boy will transition into Fall very nicely. I can’t wait to style it when the temps get a little cooler.
On another note, this weekend was surprisingly super chill. I caught up on a few things I needed to get done and jammed to Sevyn Streeter’s album the entire weekend (literally every time I got in the car.) I know I may be just a tad bit late but her album is awesome. One of my favorites being “Shattered”. That girl has an amazing voice and that song… definitely on repeat.

Some days you don’t have the words to say

silence resonates louder

only your heart knows how it feels

and that’s okay.

Actions speak louder than words…

so believe what you see…
