Oxfords and Duster..

Hi Friends, I hope you are all enjoying this awesome friday. The weather has been so beautiful over here lately except for the occasional rain now and then which is also not really a bad thing. I love it when it rains especially when it rains at night; don't you?

This is what I wore to run some errands today; I stopped by at the DMV (Department of Motor vehicles) to get new tabs for my car and this annual chore is just another reminder of how fast the time flies these days. I do not know if it is because we spend a lot of time on our phones and computers and are not really aware of the passing time or we are just extra busy these days that we do not have time to pause and reflect; whatever it is, the time is flying faster than before or maybe the days have gone shorter?...:-).

Well, It's a casual friday because I do get fridays off work these days and friday is the perfect day to dress up in jeans and do stuff or errands. This hooded tee that has spent about two years in the closet and this cropped jeans that was purchased recently from LOFT made a very good pairing today and what else to ground the look than this pair of crown vintage Alexis oxfords. The light duster coat was very essential today too because it was windy and just a tad cold.

If you have been following my blog or seen old posts, you might have noticed all the snow covered backgrounds but everything is all melted now and the trees and plants are blooming. Such a marvelous sight. You cannot help but wonder at the awesomeness of God when you spend some time in nature.

Duster Coat: Talbots
White hooded tee: Victorias secret
Bucket bag: J Crew-currently on sale
Cropped Jeans: LOFT
Oxfords:  DSW: currently on sale for $9.99
Hat: old

I hope you all would be able to pause too to reflect and enjoy nature even if it is only for a few minutes at the park like I did; and if you can, take some pictures too. You'll love to look at the beautiful pictures later on especially when all the leaves fall off the trees again and everything dries up and shrivels like it does in the fall. Also, do not forget to give God thanks for his great works and awesomeness.

                                                            Thanks so much for stopping by

Psalm 147: 7-8

Sing to the Lord with grateful praise;
    make music to our God on the harp.
He covers the sky with clouds;
    he supplies the earth with rain
    and makes grass grow on the hills.
He provides food for the cattle
    and for the young ravens when they call.
10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
    nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
11 the Lord delights in those who fear him,
    who put their hope in his unfailing love.

  8. I love the casual look. I definitely believe we don't have up to 24hrs in a day anymore.

  9. I love the simplicity of this outfit yet how neutral the jacket compliments it. Very fun outfit!

  10. I love everything about this look. The coat, hat and jeans..yes girl!! Yes time seems to fly by really

  11. I love the coat and the hat! A coat is such a great way to pull and outfit together. You can wear really cute oxfords like yours in the pic or heels and look equally as chic. Nature really has a way of highlighting the glory of God. I hope you have a great day tomorrow.

  12. Thanks everyone; have a blessed weekend.
