There are times when you are at a loss for words. I find myself struggling to put my thoughts and emotions in print because I am afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing. But, I know that inaction is almost the same as condoning actions, and I don’t want anyone to believe that I condone the actions that took the life of George Floyd. My heart breaks for his family, his friends, and those who are left to carry on without him. It breaks for everyone who has been on the receiving end of prejudice and judgments based merely on the color of their skin.
I’ve been following a pastor from Tulsa, Oklahoma, for several years. He is energizing, hilarious, humble-open-and-transparent, and he is BLACK. It was heartbreaking watching his Sunday virtual church service, and hearing his own recent (10 days ago) racial encounter. Interestingly, his #1 best selling book is titled Relationship Goals. Relationships are more than friends, family, and potential life partners. They are also how we treat our neighbors who come in all different sizes and skin tones. You can not judge if someone is good or evil based on skin color or what uniform they are wearing. If you are interested in hearing his thoughts and suggestions, then you can listen to his Sunday message by clicking HERE. I don’t have the answers, but I am not doing nothing. But, I am praying for hearts to be opened and for love to be poured in so that hate no longer has a foothold.
I know that my blog is not where you come to for news and world events, but instead to get fashion inspiration. So, let me tell you about my jewelry, which is something I am much more comfortable talking about. I am not wearing much jewelry today, but instead just adding earrings and a necklace. The earrings from Lilly Pulitzer are the Zanzibar hoop earrings that have small crystals on them. And, the long Reid necklace has a gorgeous Ivory Mother of Pearl drop pendant.
I LOVE these beautiful flip flops. Those are words that I never thought that I would be saying. Lol! Who calls a pair of flip flops beautiful? Lol! I do! When the flip flops have a gorgeous Lilly Pulizer print on the sole and metallic gold straps, then they can be considered beautiful. I bought these shoes to match a bathing suit (HERE), and you will find the bathing suit as gorgeous as the shoes. The shoes run true to size, and I am wearing the 9/10 ones. HERE is the link to the shoes.
Today, I shopped in my closet. I wanted to wear something comfortable but still looked nice. This dress is years old, and it is by Isaac Mizrahi. I love a dress like this because I sometimes use it also as a bathing suit coverup. When you are at the beach, lake, etc., you need to go inside to get a sandwich or a drink, and slipping something like this on is perfect. This dress feels like a nightgown but looks flattering and appropriate for running inside a store. I will try to see if I can find something similar.
I have been singing this song all day long. It is a song that I learned at the knee of my grandmother, who also happened to be my Sunday School teacher.
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children
Of the world
