Lifenspire: baby it's cold outside

Happy Monday World Wide Wonders! 
I have thoroughly missed chronicling my style art for each day, but it has been unkindly cold in my side of the world. I hope you are each keeping warm if you need to, and if not, do treasure the warmth of the weather that you are being blessed with.
I look forward to being able to share some style art with you soon. Meanwhile, I await the Spring season when the seed of this season shall yield fruit.

Stylenspire: black, white and snow

Happy Monday World Wide Wonders!

It seems like I finally got pulled out of the vortex of snow, ice, and rain that has been a nightmare. Thankfully, the horrors of frigid temperatures are behind us now. Through this past week, I kept thanking God for the least simple things; things we easily overlook with entitlement while we go on with life. For one heat and warmth - I was continually grateful for a sanctuary I could call home. For hot water - I was always moved to tears every time I took a hot long shower. 
Do you ever wonder what would happen/who you would be if all the little essentials that provide you daily comfort were taken away? The fact that I have these provisions and much more simply spurs my heart on in gratitude to the One Who supports and supplies my needs on all sides. It also confirms my need and belief to be the difference/make the difference for another. Since His Promise is to meet all our needs according to the riches of His Glory in Christ Jesus. PHILIPPIANS 4:19
The pictures from this post did not come out clearly to showcase today's style make up of turtle neck dress, overlaid with a strapless organza dress, and tall boots. But I chose to share it because of the beauty of nature resplendent in the background. It seemed poignant that my silhouette was framed this way; It speaks the truth of my story, that I am only found in the reflection of God the Creator.
P.S. It was fun to be out in the sun and frolic in the snow. Enjoy!

Stylenspire: pebble print

World Wide Wonders, I truly trust that you have each had an enjoyable holiday season and have plenteous reasons to look forward to an amazing year of exceeding grace. My holiday has been so peaceful, refreshing and full of grace. Words cannot express how grateful I am right now and how truly my heart is filled with the joy of His Strength.
In my mellow state of mind, these pair of crepe silk pants was the way to go. I like the way pajama pants have been inducted into style trends. They are so easy to wear with effortless style, and I paired mine with a leather sleeve top and fur vest. For color, I wore these red platform booties that I am so in love with but have not worn in almost a year as the heels are over the top. Today's style make up are each easy wearable pieces that put together this way, I achieved a stylish finish with the pebble print pants and the shoes for focal pleasure.
