I’ve been searching for the perfect crop top to wear with high waisted bottoms for quite some time now. Especially this skirt. I’ve looked high and low but couldn’t find a perfect basic that matched with everything. One day, while browsing the streets of San Francisco. I came across the cutest boutique. One of the stylists suggested this white crop top. It fit perfectly! The fabric is super stretchy so it hugs all of my curves. It has tank top straps and shows just enough skin. Obviously, I had to buy it in black as well. I’ve already worn them three times since purchasing. Because they match with literally all of my high waisted bottoms: Pants, skirts, jeans. Honestly, I was so relieved when I bought these crop tops.
For this outfit in particular. I decided to wear my silver statement necklace and keep everything else fairly simple. The floral tulle skirt really speaks for itself. I also paired it with flats. Because honestly, my feet were HURTING from walking around earlier in heels. 😉 The pink metallic sunglasses also matched well with this outfit. As well as the gold ring.

Taking a long flight has its perks and downfalls. While it’s exciting traveling to a new place, the flights can sometimes become dull and irritating. I like to keep as busy as possible on a flight, making it go by faster and keeping me calm. Some of my favorite tips keep my mind and hands distracted. I also have tips for flying with a pet here!
If you’re lucky enough to fly first class, they will obviously include your meals. When I’m flying coach, I like to bring something packaged that will last a few hours before being eaten. No matter which class I’m flying, I also love to bring lots of candy and gum! This gives me something to secondarily focus on. Keeping my mind occupied. Whether I’m reading a magazine, watching a movie, or on my phone. I find snacking or chewing gum distracts me for at least a little while. Plus its yummy. Win-win.
I switch up reading material from books to magazines. I like to purchase a few magazines to read in case there’s no Wifi on the flight for some reason. The magazine keeps me busy while the excitement of the flight dies down. Once I’m bored with reading those, I’ll take a break and work from my phone/laptop or watch a movie. Once I’m bored with the digital world, I’ll go back and read a book. This takes my mind away from the plane and once again, distracts me from the oh-so-boring flight. I normally bring a book with me and purchase magazines at the airport. However, I should purchase both beforehand to save money. Convenience gets the better of me.
If you’re blessed with Wifi on the flight, this can consume your entire trip. Without ever needing another distraction. Hello social media. JetBlue now actually offers FREE Wifi on every single one of their flights. Hallejulah. I like to bring my MacBook for work, when switching off from my phone. Having both keeps me the busiest. I also do this when working from home, so it’s a normal situation. There are also movies on most flights now. I like to time my flight by watching movies too. For example, I’ll read for as long as I can. Then watch a movie (about 2 hours down), then have a snack/meal, distract with my phone/laptop then watch another movie (2 more hours cut off). This honestly makes the time fly by. (No pun intended, or was it?)
I get up to stretch my legs, stand up a bit, and use the ladies room every 1-2 hours. This helps circulation as well as keeping the body busy. I normally get extremely restless on flights and need to move around when possible. I love the aisle seat because of this reason! I don’t recommend doing this if you have a middle or window seat. Unless you don’t mind disturbing your fellow seat mates.
Some people can fall right asleep on flights. This is especially true for red eyes. I have always wished I could sleep on flights. I normally end up falling half asleep, and then waking up in a jolted gasp with a few people looking over at me. (Embarrassing). Consequently, I personally do not like to sleep on flights and prefer a day time trip. But I do know plenty of people who will sleep for most of the journey as if it was nothing. So, if you can sleep in public, then definitely do so. You will wake feeling refreshed and have extra energy for the trip ahead.

White lace tops are so fun to wear because they can be worn casually or dressed up. White lace also has the versatility to play up feminine aspects or downplay them with a bit of masculinity. This blouse comes with the black bow tie featured. Luckily it’s removable so I’m able to wear the top in different ways.
One way I like to wear this blouse is with denim. It can be tucked in or out, depending on the style jeans. I recommend tucking in with a higher waist. A white lace top tucked into lower waisted denim with a belt looks amazing as well. Leaving the blouse tucked out gives a more relaxed feel. Tucking in part of the blouse with a small twist on the side gives the ultimate relaxed vibe.
I originally bought this blouse because it pairs so well with the featured skirt below. The white lace and black bow tie match the pattern in the skirt so perfectly. I love the different textures as well. A satin skirt with a lace top. The black bow tie plays with the gradient pattern of the skirt. I recommend pairing a white blouse with a skirt when you’re looking for a classic, chic outfit that’s well put together. This white lace, or even just a white blouse, meshes seamlessly with an elegant skirt.
I decided to button up the lace blouse all the way to my neck, adding the collar necklace. I felt this truly made the necklace stand out. While the white created an amazing backdrop for it. Pairing this look with leggings creates a chic, yet comfortable outfit. The see through lace is made apparent as the camisole underneath only provided some coverage. This made the lace stand out more; compared to the top being tucked in.

This red topic came to light in my thoughts after a self-described Christian described a conspiracy theory one night. The theory, about halfway through, mentioned something about lust, good vs. bad, heaven and hell. Immediately my brain started paying attention again. This triggered my emotions deeply. Is lust bad? Are any of the “deadly sins” actually bad? For us, or the people around us? Let’s dive into this one sin by one.
Lust: A natural human desire, created in our bodies, designed for humans to procreate. Without lust, there would be no desire to expand our community. While, we may mate as other animals do; humans were lucky enough to be gifted with pleasure. So why is this considered sinning?
Gluttony: Sure, some of us may over eat, indulge, or satisfy a craving. But is craving food bad? Is letting yourself taste what you desire truly a negative action? Yes, it may result in being overweight and unhealthy if taken advantage of. But who the fuck are you to judge another person for what they eat?
Greed: What I also like to call motivation, inspiration, drive, being a boss, the list goes on. Greed drives us to work harder for what we want. If we didn’t have greed, we would all be contently satisfied with a boring, dull life. Enough said.
Sloth: The avoidance of physical or spiritual work. I don’t know about you, but when I’m feeling a bit sloth-like, I’m probably depressed on some level or incredibly overwhelmed with the amount of things going on in my life. It’s healthy to take a break, or a lazy day when needed. But relaxing on the couch day in and day out, with no goals, hobbies, or work… that may be a problem.
Wrath: An emotion. Another natural human emotion stemming from birth. If I met a person who was happy and content with themselves, their lives, and the actions/people around them all of the time – I would not be okay with that. Being angry is a natural state. If we didn’t know what anger was and learn what is appropriate to act on, and what isn’t, there would be no knowledge of what life felt like when we weren’t angry.
Envy: Compared yourself to others can easily contribute to bringing yourself down, and fast. But that’s not to say, that being envious of others can’ drive, motivate, or inspire you to be a better person. To be your best self, go after what you want, take slivers of what you like that another person has and apply it to your life. Envy, spite, and vengeance has been some of my biggest motivators. You may or may not realize it, but it’s probably one of yours too.
Pride: Last but not least. What is pride? Being proud. Since when is being proud of your accomplishments, assets, yourself, your goals, work ethic, hobbies, lifestyle – a bad thing? I sure as hell have a lot of pride. Let me tell you, being proud of myself and my life has also strengthened me to grow into a better person. It has also driven me, amongst many of these other devastatingly deadly sins.
Conclusion: In my opinion, these ‘sins’ are only deadly if they affect yourself or another person negatively. As long as you are happy, content, and live a satisfying life you love, you do you boo.
