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.

Flower Child



Actions speak louder than words…

so believe what you see…

and forget what you heard.

Jump Suits

You deserve flowers on your doorstep
and coffee in the morning
you deserve notes left on your dashboard
and ice cream sundaes at 3am
you deserve honesty every day
and to be kissed every hour
you deserve to be reminded
how beautiful you are
everyday!

Brights and Stripes


Understanding will never bring you peace. That’s why I have instructed you to trust in Me, not your understanding. Human beings have a voracious appetite for trying to figure things out in order to gain a sense of mastery over their lives. But the world presents you with an endless series of problems. As soon as you master one set, another pops up to challenge you. The relief you had anticipated is short-lived. Soon your mind is gearing up again; searching for understanding (mastery), instead of seeking Me (your Master).

The wisest of all men, Solomon could never think his way through to Peace. His vast understanding resulted in feelings of futility, rather than to fulfillment. Finally, he lost his way and succumbed to the will of his wives by worshipping idols.

My Peace is not an elusive goal, hidden at the center of some complicated maze. Actually, you are always enveloped in Peace, which is inherent in My Presence. As you look to Me, you gain awareness of the precious Peace.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6
