As y’all know, I’m a dance teacher. It’s such a fun and rewarding job. I get to combine my passion for dance and love of children – what more could I ask for? Some nights are better than others. A couple of weeks ago one of my competitive groups got their costumes. It was a beautiful, pink, long sleeved dress with lace and pleats. It was stunning. They were so excited and started describing the costume to the older group. One of my students, Miranda, said the dress was “wrinkled” I laughed and reminded her that the dresses weren’t wrinkled, they were pleated, and that was that. That little interaction lingered in my head the rest of the night and into the days to follow.
My past is full of wrinkles. I’m ashamed of how I have treated people. I’m ashamed of the hypocritical attitude I had. I’m ashamed of how I doubted God. The list goes on. Guess what? All those things have been sorted out. God’s love keeps no record of our wrongs and our past is re-written. He took the wrinkles of my past, showed me grace, and told me to forget my past mistakes because He was making me new with clean pleats. Instead of being a hot mess, I feel secure in the life He has chosen for me. I love it!
I’m also pretty in love with these jeans from Shein. I found them on a CRAZY good deal and was in love with the fun flare. If you follow me on Instagram or snapchat, you’ve heard about these heels by Dolce and Gabbana. I may or may not have shed a tear when they came in the mail. They were my first high end designer purchase and I FEEL NO REMORSE. I’ll share with you just why I HAD to buy them – originally these shoes run around $700. I found them for $75. I feel pretty confident that the Lord wouldn’t have put them in my life if I wasn’t supposed to bring them home haha. I’ve shared this tunic in a different color on the blog before. It’s a basic necessity that you need in your wardrobe! As always, shop this look below.
