One Day I'll Love Again

Monday, May 09, 2011

I recently went through a very rough break-up and it has been affecting me for months. I don't know how to trust, and not be paranoid now, or ever think I'll be good enough for another guy. What would make them stay with me when this one didn't? I went through all kinds of "What is wrong with me?" scenarios and it just has not been a happy time. Really focusing on blogging and reading other blogs has really distracted me and gotten me through this hard time in my life. So I appreciate each and every one of my fans and blogger friends, and those of you who comment on my posts everyday. It tells me that people do care about me, even people I've never met in person, and I really appreciate it. Who needs a man anyway?

Anyhoo, I bought this heart necklace at the Houston International Festival last weekend and though I'm still down and bitter on love right now, and still healing I wanted to buy it and wear it to remind myself that one day I will find love again.


Ensemble:
Vest: A'Gaci
Striped Tee: Express
Necklace: Vendor at iFest
Pants: New York & Company
Wedges: New York & Company

I love this cheap little vest I bought from A'GACI. I'm pretty sure it was only $6.50, but there are so many ways to wear it as I demonstrate in my photos. I ended up wearing the tied at the bottom look today for work. But I'm so excited to have this piece in my closet!! I'm also really in love with the color combination black, white, and red. Since I wanted the necklace to be the focus I didn't "RED" this outfit out. But on another day I might had added red heels, or a red skinny belt!

  1. I liked your message on this blog. I'm from Houston too! :) But I did want to say don't let a "man" determine how you feel about yourself after yall break up. You didn't lose him, he lost you. Just wake up everyday with a smile on your pretty face and live your life like he never existed, it helped me.

    P.S. I have those same pants from NY&C but I got the purple one's!

  2. Aww! Breakups aren't fun! :( I'm glad you were able to get through it. Just remember three things my mom always told me:

    1) You're beautiful, talented, and 100% perfect.
    2) He DOES NOT desreve you.
    3) Wait ten years; he's probably gay.

    Oh, mothers... Anyways, your look here is absolutely gorgeous!! I'm especially in love with the wide leg pants and the heart necklace. White = PERFECT for Summer! :)

  7. Hey Shalanda: Ive been there, gal, and I can totally relate, But thanks to a God given determination, ( My parents used to call it stuborness) I keep the faith.... BUT, now, I'm letting him find me.(Im hoping its the one I just started seeing) As far as The ones that didn't work out, Well, I firmly believe that's because one day when we least expect it, Someone is going to enter our lives and we will finally understand why none of the others worked out. Just keep that gorgeous face of yours smiling and one day you will look up and he will just be standing there and you'll say "Where have you been"? In the meantime, You go out there and enjoy life, and I will too. Make the most of every day and Thank God if you find a Best friend that is half the caliber that mine is, who happens to be Your mom. Keep the blog coming, Its great! You are a young and smart girl that has a lot to offer, But you owe yourself the good life before you owe anyone else anything. Lyn

  12. Oh Shasie baby! You look great! You have such great style and know what works on you!
    You will love again! God must have someone much better in mind for you. Trust in that. You have so many positives...that guy just didn't appreciate or recognize in you. You don't want to be with someone who doesn't love you for everything you are and have to offer. These times are times for you to grow in your confidence and become wiser. Just remember you have pride you have power and beautiful inside and out! What a really lucky guy the next one will be!
    So smile, gather your strength and enjoy all your friends, family and the blog family you have discovered! We love you!

  24. What a GREAT Blog Shasie! Yes, broken hearts are no laughing matter. I have been (in some ways) still am in the same situation as you as I really wanted to marry this person. What gives me some happiness is to know he will never find another women better than me while I can always upgrade.

    By the way this blog is great. You know me. I have always loved effortless fashion.

    Love..... don't listen to all those country songs and fairy tales. It is not supposed to be hard. I totally learned this the hard way. I thought it was supposed to be hard so I'd stick it out through thick and thin. Guess what, it is supposed to be easy. Find someone that is easy to love and your relationship feels effortless. That is a true keeper.

  47. @AnonymousHey girl! How the heck are ya! So true, love is supposed to easy. When you love someone you love them and you don't hurt them. Definitely found out the hard way, so I'm waiting for the one it's easy with :-)
