"Fall" into Braids + Life Emotions
The end of the summer is suppose to be a fun ending to an amazing season. The end of my summer started with a wedding then a funeral. That alone sounds like a title of a movie doesn't it? Well it was just that, my life has literally felt like a movie for the past few weeks. I can't go into too much detail but I have literally reencountered someone from the past, and we have bonded as if no time has passed. Life is tricky like that. A lot of times we can be such great friends with someone and one day you move away, or they move away and you lose that connection. It is actually really sad if you think about. Any who, a similar situation happen to me and I couldn't be more thrilled. In the mist of a wedding and a funeral, this person continued to put a genuine smile on my face. I am not sure I have smiled like this in a while. Moving to NYC and being focused on work and life obstacles, a lot of times we forget that God can actually send you someone that he feels you were not done with yet. I believe he sends each and every single one of us to live our best lives, and allows us to connect with the right individuals that he believes will help us grow. I hope this fall is a life changer for me. I would like to grow as a human in ways I have never grown before. My life has been a bit less in control lately, and maybe that is a good thing. I am low key a control freak you all. Yes! Me Micaèla is a control freak, and honestly it sucks. I don't always want to be this way, and I think finally this is the season that God has given me that will finally aid me in letting go of certain things. Don't get me wrong, I think being in control of your life is definitely different than being a control freak. I would like to take control of my life this season and of course going forward. That starts with taking care of my mind, body, and soul.
My first step towards taking control of my life, is to begin to take care of my body much more. I plan on getting fit this season and also having healthier hair. There is a reason for these beautiful braids that I have in my head. I am using this protective style as a way to give my hair a break, and to oil my dry scalp much more than I have ever done in the past. I have been using "Tropics isle Living" for almost a a month now, and my scalp has not felt this moisturized in forever. I am excited to see the outcome after I take my braids out, and who knows, maybe get a nice protective style again.
Alright, alright, alright, don't worry I didn't forget to talk about my outfit, I know that's what you all are waiting. Sorry for getting a bit too emotional, I just felt like expressing myself to you all and I hope that is ok....Any who, the outfit that I have on down below is is difiently an in to fall end of summer outfit. Transitioning into seasons is much easier than we think. The leotard that I am wearing is a summer piece but can be well represented in the fall as well. I paired it with a nice fall beenie to show an example of what I mean. If I wore a nice jacket with this outfit, I would have been all ready for the fall season, but we are not there yet, we are still in the transitioning phase. Pairing a leotard like this with an oversized high waisted denim gave me the feeling of chill and cool. This outfit is difenetly a weekend super chill, type of outfit. It is cute and that is where it stops. Not everything we wear has to be a big production, many times low maintenance is and can be the way to go. I hope you try this super cute outfit out and let me know your thoughts, you have my email, until next time.
