My Charlotte Russe Ensemble
Open our hearts, To see the things That make Your heart cry, To be the church The You would desire. Light to be seen.
Break down our pride, And all the walls We've built up inside, Our earthly crowns And all our desires, We lay at Your feet.
-Hillsong - With Everything
There’s a lot of tension going on in the U.S right now, specifically in Ferguson and now, New York. I would like to take a moment of silence to remember the people that have lost their lives at the hands of those who vowed to protect them. I would also like to take a moment to thank the officers that risk their lives every day to protect and serve us. As history repeats itself over and over again, I realize that harboring hate, bitterness and unforgiveness does not do justice to anyone. It’s easy to judge people when you have no clue about the battles that they fight everyday; you cannot understand someone else's struggles, hurt, and pain unless you have walked a mile in their shoes. In the midst of it all, I really hope and pray that instead of taking sides, we would extend a little more kindness to people that are different from us and treat everyone with the uttermost worth and respect that we all deserve.
Now that I just got that off my chest, let me quickly mention something regarding this outfit post. It was when I was writing the outfit details portion of this post that I realized that the blazer, blouse, pants and shoes were all purchased from Charlotte Russe at different times. They have some great affordable pieces that can be worn to work.
