There's a quote about how God laughs when we make plans and I'm beginning to find that to be so true. There's two kinds of people in this world: those who go with the flow and those who plan. I definitely fit in that latter category. I'm not exactly where I want to be in life, so I'm constantly planning how I can get ahead. It's so frustrating when things don't work out, but a lot of times things fall through because God has something better in store for us.

I got a lot of great news this past week that's beginning to make me believe my career goals are so much smaller than what I'm capable of. This week I'll flying to New York to celebrate the launch of ASOS's new Big and Tall collection (follow along with me on snapchat @thedapperbaker)! At church we've been talking about not limiting God, which is something I'm really bad about. This opportunity is a reminder to believe in myself, trust God and know that everything works out in the end.

How to (Semi) Dress Up Sweatpants

It's always funny to look back at how my style has evolved over the years. There was a time in college when I used to wear bow ties to class. Over time I got lazy and started wearing whatever was easy and comfortable. I may have felt comfortable in my sweats, but I looked like a scrub. Now that sportswear is trendy, it's easier to find tailored sweats. Tailored sweats are that perfect balance between looking put together and feeling comfortable.

To dress up my Banana Republic sweats, I've paired them with my go-to turtleneck sweater. I don't think a look is complete without at least three pieces, which is why I've topped it off with a denim jacket, which I scored from Forever 21 for under $50. This outfit is perfect for running errands, but dressy enough to causally meet-up with friends. Check out the slideshow below to shop.

Fresh & Sleek

I'm so thankful it's Friday! I hope you guys have had an awesome week. It's been a good week for me, but a little stressful at the same time. I'm in the process of finding a new job and it's been a little frustrating. I've also been hung up on the fact that I care too much about what people think and therefore I act too nice. I know I probably sound whiny, but I'm really happy at the end of the day. In some of my previous posts, I've talked about how I was self-destructive in college as a result of stress. Stress is a part of life, but I'm happy because I've learned to deal with it in a healthy way. There's nothing better than seeing growth within yourself. I'm looking forward to attending church services this weekend to recharge and get ready to take on another week. I hope you guys have an awesome weekend!

The Soundtrack of My Life Right Now

A couple months ago I shared my workout playlist and I figured it'd be cool to share followup, which are some of my favorite songs to listen to throughout the day. This is mix is a little eclectic, but I feel like the overall vibe is fun and sexy. I have my moments when I'm ready to turn up, but for the most part I like to keep it chill. Check it out below and let me know what you think!
