Roses are Red, Violets are Blue

 

 

I graduated, y'all!

For the past two years, I've been studying an MBA in Marketing. It's been a tough yet rewarding  journey, and I'm so excited for what the future has in store for me.

June has been an exhilarating month. I turned 26 and I graduated with a Masters degree. Although I have a lot to be thankful for, for a moment I was scared of the unknown and the fact that I am indeed getting older.  I quickly snapped out of that and decided to be intentional about living day-to-day. It is what it is. Just like red roses will always be red and blue violets will always be blue, time will always be moving. I can't stop time. So, I choose to enjoy life and trust the process.

 
 
For this outfit, I wanted to emphasize the color red. I've been studying color theory lately and learned that red is an emotionally intense color. Red is associated with strength, power, determination, desire, and love.

The sheer top that I am wearing is my favorite top at the moment until I buy a better looking one lol. The blouse plays on the cheongsam traditional Chinese dress. I love the beautiful floral pattern on the blouse. While the top is very much traditional, it's edgy and fun. It can be paired with several items, so I can't wait to wear it over and over again!

When I saw these striped red and white pants I had to purchase them. I have a fascination with flared pants, so I will be wearing them often this summer. They aren't too long, so they can be easily paired with flats or a low heel.
