Last week my family and I celebrated my younger brother’s birthday and it was very different, but a good different. Everyone got to share ‘a first’ moment and together – my dad’s first time drinking a beverage out of a fruit other than coconut water, my sister’s first time eating onion strings…yes, some places makes strings. It was also all of our first time hanging out without ‘momsie’ there. As we all get ‘younger’ and time passes us we’ve noticed that we do not get to sit down for dinner as much so special days like birthdays, we really do try.

Have you ever had an outfit or even article of clothing that you have not worn because you just were not sure where or when you could wear it? If your answer is yes, then, just know that you are not alone. I have had this skirt for more than two years just sitting in my drawer for a ‘special’ event. Honestly, I believe that subconsciously I held onto it until I found something that would complement it. Then, I came across this sweater from A’gaci in an 30 percent ‘after winter blowout’ sale. [Sidebar]: I thought the sale name was funny considering that the weather in this spring season, has been feeling more like a winter. Hence, the title of this post.
Then, as ‘luck’ would have it I had to go to two events — an anniversary / birthday celebration and church (I have missed going for a couple of months and I finally made an effort to go, and I am so glad that I did) As the day went on, it had dawned on me that sometimes you just have to hold on or hold out because something better could possibly come along. I am definitely glad that I reconsidered giving this skirt away and other things.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen the sneak peek of this look but you can check out the full details of my outfit collage below. Interested in my makeup? My beauty mix for this snowy weather is also below.
