A few weeks ago I saw one of my favorite bloggers, Brooklyn Blonde wear a grey on grey outfit. Now, hers looked nothing like this, but i still thought it was such a smart idea, and i wanted to give it a try with my own spin on it. Who would’ve thought to wear grey on grey? I know i wouldn’t of, but i loved it. These jeans are Zara, grey V-Neck from H&M and my leather jacket from Windsor that i’ve worn on previous posts. Now, I challenge you to try a grey on grey look! I also wanted to talk about something else, the dating life. (Dun, Dun, Dun) I have honestly been dreading this topic, I get butterflies in my stomach, because I know that a lot of people may not agree with the way i see things. This topic came to mind the other day, when I was at lunch with my best friend Khat. We were talking about our dating life, and I was telling her that when it comes to relationships or dating, I am an old soul. I’m extremely old fashioned. If i can be honest, i’ve been getting a lot of hate for being this way, from both men and women. This is my idea of how it should be, a gentleman meets a lady, he’s interested, so he pursues her. By this, i mean that he is the first to contact her, actually he is the only one doing the calling, texting, emailing etc. That is, up until they are a couple, then of course it includes two people, and i meet him halfway. That’s just how i am, always have been, and honestly don’t see myself changing. For me, if a gentleman wants to take me out on a date, ask me. If he wants to talk to me, do it. If you want me to be yours, work for it. Until we decide to be a couple, i don’t bother you. I really hope this doesn’t make me sound like a bitch, because that is truly not my intention at all. I am not saying to play “hard to get” either, thats when mind games start, and lets be honest, “aint nobody got time for that.” I’ve been dating since i was 15, and with time this is what i have learned, if a man truly wants to be with you, he has absolutely no problem making you his. I stand firm on the fact that too many young ladies are making it way to easy for these boys, by chasing them down, by making it way too easy for the ladies to be claimed. I think its simple, you can tell when i’m into someone, i don’t spend time with anyone unless, I genuinely enjoy spending time with you, and i don’t say anything i don’t mean. I am not a relationship expert, FAR FROM IT actually. I am just stating how i am. The only true love story that i have heard of, didn’t come from a movie, didn’t come from a book or song. It came from my grandmothers true life story. Her and my grandpa had the most romantic story, and honest true love. It started with friendship and blossomed into true love for one another. I asked her what she thought about how i am and she said that it was the exact way she was. For that reason, ill be staying firm on my views of dating. Call me crazy, but i believe theres an old fashioned gentleman out there for me.

    Cute outfit! I follow you on Instagram and thought I’d chime in on here. Congrats on your blog and following your dreams! I’ve followed you before you’ve started your blog and I’m amazed at how driven you are! You bring a lot of positivity and you’re a very optimistic person, those are rare nowadays. Continue working hard at it, you will be successful. I know it! About the dating part; don’t worry, I’m an old fashioned gal myself! Who doesn’t like being pursued? That’s exactly how it should be! A girl should never throw herself on a guy, he should be the one chasing! Never change your standards for anyone and never settle :)! Wishing you the best!
