“Leopard mix”

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7

I’m wearing:
Grayson Shop leopard crop top (c/o)
Blake Scott leopard heels – similar here / Also love these blue leopard ones
H&M cross body bag – similar here in white and in black

Cropping it like it’s hot. Because… well, it is hot! Ha! Corny, I know but I bet it made you smile 🙂

Many are skeptical about rocking the crop top trend confidently but I am here to remind you of this: FEAR NOT!
Pairing your loose fitting crop top with a fitted pencil skirt allows you to balance out the proportions and if the waist of your bottom comes up high enough, you don’t even have to expose your midriff. Of course there’s nothing wrong with showing a little skin so bring out your high-waisted denims or skirts and enjoy the summer months before they become a distant memory.
To add a bit of visual interest to the look, I opted for leopard print heels. The common color black throughout the outfit, ties in all the pieces together and prevents one print for clashing with the other.

On another note, have you ever been crippled by fear? You want to do something, you have the ability to do it but the fear of the unknown keeps you crippled and you don’t make a move. The above verse is what I turn to when I face those moments. I have a spirit of power instilled in me by the Holy Spirit. There’s no greater strength than that. I have nothing to be afraid of and neither do you. So write down those goals that you have been scared to work on and start achieving them… TODAY!

Stay fabulous beauties and have a blessed weekend!
