Recently a friend of mine tagged me in a post on Facebook. The post included pictures of a t-shirt line that was created by one of her friends. When I saw the t-shirts I immediately let out a "yassss" because it felt like somebody had summed up my life and put it in t-shirt form lol. One of the shirts featured the slogan "Fine & Favored" and the other said "Saved & Sexy".
Now if you know anything about me then you know that I have always considered myself to be a card carrying member of #TeamSexySaints lol. Now while this may cause the church mothers to clutch their saved and sanctified pearls, I am just keeping it real. I was hot when my husband met me and I plan on staying that way. The only difference between then and now, is back then I didn't know that there was a different between being dressing "sexy" and "sexual". Now I know that I can be covered from head to toe and still turn heads as I have learned how to present myself in a way that is still fashionable without showing all of my goodies.
So day two of my Vegas trip was full of fun! I painted the town red, or should I say black and gold, in my "Fearfully & Wonderfully Made" t-shirt. Yesterday I told you guys how I learned to throw aside my insecurities and inhibitions to unleash my inner "romper goddess" and this shirt helped to remind me that despite what I may feel about myself at times, God thinks I'm perfect just the way I am!
I say that not to brag, but the Bible says in Psalm 139:14 that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made". That means that matter what we may think about ourselves..."I'm too short, I'm too tall, I'm too fat, I'm too skinny", we are perfect in his eyes! So remember the next time that you start to feel down on yourself that the same God that created the whole universe created you and he thinks that you're pretty awesome!!!
Now for a rundown of my day two outfit:

Hey ya'll! So here are a few pictures of my first day in Vegas baby!!! I decided to spend my first day on the town in my new blue romper (unfortunately, they don't make rompers in 3x or else my husband and I could've been twins that day lol). Although I think it was pretty cute, wearing it definitely took me out of my comfort zone! Rompers combine two things that I've always shied away from, shorts and one-piece outfits.
I've always had a love/hate relationship with shorts...I loved them on other people but hated them on me. I'm a little lady with little legs, and then when you add being a member of #teamthickums to that, I just never thought they looked right on me. Add to that the fact that I never liked one-piece outfits (rompers, bodysuits, etc.) then you can understand why I stayed away from rompers, but I decided to give it a try yesterday and I think I pulled it off pretty well!!! (I even got a compliment from some drunk girl in the restroom last night who told me I was rocking that s**t lol!)
Although my first adventure in "Romper World" may seem pretty insignificant, is does push me to try and step out to do some other things that I have never done before. Things that I have been scared to do because I have given myself a million reasons why it just won't work or I don't have what it takes to pull it off, only to surprise myself with the fact that I had it in me all along.
So my question to you is, what is one thing that you can do to step out of your comfort zone? What is that thing that you have been scared to try or do because you don't think you have what it takes to make it work? I challenge you today to step out and go for it!!! Stop letting fear hold you back. It can be something as simple as trying a new hairstyle or as big as going back to school. Like my inner romper goddess, you will never know you had it in you until you try!!!
Before I end this post I want to give a quick run down of my outfit for the day:
Shoes: Charlotte Russe (yes I know, all of my shoes come from Charlotte Russe but I hope if I shout them out enough they'll start sending me free stuff lol)
