I have been super in to all sorts of statement flats and sandals lately. And these cute sandals from GoJane are no exception. A good pair of shoes can be all your outfit needs to make it pop and make a statement. They’re the perfect match to a simple outfit like this dress or even jeans and a striped tee! So do yourself and find a pair so you can make a statement too.
One of my favorite parts of this outfit is the cute bar necklace I’m wearing from Speakable. (My other one with the roman numerals is our wedding date <3 ) When I was browsing their site and saw that they had a necklace that said “Choose Joy”, I had to have it. I actually had already had that exact statement written on a chalkboard sign at my salon station. #meanttobe. But jokes aside, I love this reminder. I feel like so often we live our lives in a state very far from joy. We go up and down and all around depending upon our life situation and what happened in our day. And I don’t just mean you have to walk around faking happy all the time. Joy is so much more and goes so much deeper. It’s something internal that for me can’t be explained by anything other than God’s love flowing out of me and producing joy. I want to live a life full of joy. And I can. I just have to make the daily choice to choose joy. Even when everything in life doesn’t go exactly as I planned, I can CHOOSE to be joyful in the midst of my circumstances. So I now have another reminder in addition to my little sign at work to choose joy. And I love it.
Hope you all have the best week, and don’t forget to CHOOSE JOY. I’m back to work today after my little vacation, and I ain’t mad about it. 😛
