the perfect neutral cardigan

Hello cool weather.. I’m so happy that you have arrived!! We needed a break from that southern heat.  It’s lame, but I seriously couldn’t wait to start rockin’ my winter wardrobe. I have shown off this perfect neutral cardigan quite a few times. Y’all, it’s currently on sale so go snag you one of these darlin’ cardigans!!

So, I recently had two visits to the doctor, and both of my doctors were concerned about my resting heart rate {which I’m not going to lie made me a little nervous.}. I went ahead and let them run some test: blood work and an EKG. Thankfully all of the test came back fine. My doctor diagnosed me with a “sensitive heart” which is comical because it is so true in many ways. In the testing process, one of my doctors asked me if the death of my sister deeply effected me. Of course, her absence did bring on sadness, bring on heartbreak for all of us especially her kids, and bring on a little regret too. But, ultimately, over the years, I’ve learned that I can’t control everything, I couldn’t control what happened to her or control the outcome of her life, and I can’t even control my resting heart rate. But, I can learn from uncertainty, from tragedy, from heartache, from loss… and use her story and my story to help others.

God is in control

I’ve also learned that there is a few things that I can control:

my beliefs, my attitude, my thoughts, my perspective, my honesty, the friends that I choose, the food that I eat, how I treat myself, how I treat others, how I express my feelings, how much I express gratitude and how I spend my time.

God is in control

Another thing that I can control is what type of hair products that I put in my hair.

I have been very impressed with the It’s a 10 line of hair products. I have both the travel size for getaways and even for  blog shoots. And, I have the larger size of the the shampoo, conditioner, hair spray and hair mask too. My favorite has been the hair mask. It adds so much shine and strength back into each hair strand. As you can tell, I lighten my hair so I had to start buying better products for the dryness and damage. I’m such a believer in this product and they aren’t paying me say this. I went ahead and linked my top favorites for you.

    This is such a beautiful, versatile cardigan. I love how you’ve styled it with the distressed jeans for a casual look, and I can also see how it could be paired with dress slacks for a business look or a night out on the town.
