I blinked on October 31st, and now we’re already at the beginning of December. What!?

October and November this year – 2 of my 3 favorite months! – were 2 of the worst on record in 2017. Worst is quite the exaggeration, so I’ll retract that and just say that they freaking blew… Tough situations within the Greek community, and when you have friends that you’re so close to that they’re basically family go through something tough, it effects you too!… My best friend moved to Colorado… those things and more that just made the last 2 months feel like a never ending rainy season of facing very adult situations. Life came barreling at me.

But with all the rain, came some good. If it doesn’t rain, then we don’t grow. God’s timing of things is NEVER random. You do not go through tough times without God’s light eventually shining through and giving you a rainbow.

I have nothing but excitement for the future now, which, is a very calming feeling for someone who has a LOT of anxiety. I get caught up in what the future may hold and forget to stop and focus on what I can control in this exact moment. (I see myself doing MUCH yoga to keep myself grounded, especially with my knee feeling better with each passing day – holla!)

Granted, I took an EPIC trip to Europe that I’ll never forget and cherish forever, which was a ray of sunshine in an otherwise gloomy season in my life. (which I’ll FINALLY get to in December! so PLEASE stay tuned!). The future has so much more in store for me, and with that, I can enter this last month of 2017 with a better attitude and maybe even lose my superstition of odd number years (more on that another time).

Normally I’ll have 2 Easters to debut a floral or pastel color outfit, but this year I had only one. Unfortunately it was a hot and sticky Easter (thankfully not as hot and miserably sticky as last year’s); fortunately Pasxa was early enough in the season this year that although it packed some heat, there was a nice spring breeze that cooled us all off as we sat outside and celebrated the holiday with lots of lamb and lots of wine. *salivates*

Earrings : “Sophee” Kendra Scott – rose gold

Steve Madden espadrilles “Elody” (DSW)

Espadrilles make me jump for joy and are THE epitome of summer/springtime shoe.

Love a braid crown for warm days

Top : Stitch Fix || Bottoms : H&M Twill shorts

I’m normally not a fan of flowy tops (they make me feel large and shapeless) but this is perfect for the season and my gal-pal Kristen picked it out for me.

Kept makeup very light. My parents have been hosting Greek Easter for an eternity, and as their offspring, we’re expected to help. Which means, there’s a lot of running around trying to be co-hostesses with the mostest(-esses).

FACE : Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint in St. Moritz
BROWS : ABH Brow Gel
MASCARA : L’Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black
LIPS : ABH Tulip
