Feeling Alive Again + Snakeskin Print Wrap Dress

After many dark days, I’m seeing some light.  It’s crazy and hard to explain but it feels good.  I feel alive again. For the first time in years, I feel like myself.  I feel strong.

People keep telling me what I’m going through is a gift and I finally get it.  It’s as if I’ve been re-born.  I’ve been set free from the pain I’ve endured for years.  I feel like this is my second chance at life and happiness.

This may not be how I envisioned or hoped my life would be like but I’ve come to terms with it.  Sometimes we get so caught up in what we want our lives to look like that we will basically do anything and put up with anything just to keep that facade. I feel more motivated than ever to persevere.  I share my thoughts and feelings with you to give you hope if you happen to be a dark place.  I didn’t think it was possible but it is.  You have to believe it.

This photoshoot HERE was the first time since I started blogging that I felt like myself.  The photos were definitely darker and moodier but I love the change.  I’m obsessed with the navy lace dress I wore in that post and it’s on sale for only $40.

On another note, I wanted to share with you this snakeskin wrap dress.  It’s a limited edition and available only online.  I love the subtleness of the print and color.  So light and feminine.  There’s six pieces available and I also have this pleated skirt which I love.  See the full collection HERE.

Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing size 00 petite.  The dress drapes beautifully and love that there is an additional snap for coverage.  The tie waist pulls everything together.  Love it and would recommend! 🙂

  6. Your story gives me hope. Going through a dark place in my marriage and it seemed never ending. You blog today felt like it was directed at me. I’ve held out waiting for change that now I see will never come. The hurt is unbearable but your story gives me hope that I will be ok. You are a inspiration… thank you.

    • Aw omg this brings me to tears in so many ways. I am SO sorry to hear that you are going through difficult times with your marriage. It is not an easy thing to handle and it almost feels like death. Please know that you will get through this and come out even stronger. I didn’t think it was possible to feel the way I do now but it is. Just take it one day at a time and don’t be so hard on yourself. Take time for YOU, love YOURSELF and do not give up hope. The light will shine and the sun will rise. Sending virtual hugs and prayers. XOXO
