For the past week, I’ve been hosting a Self-Love Email Challenge and sharing corresponding blog posts. Self-love is super important to me and part of my self-care ritual. I truly believe that the way you love yourself is reflected in the relationships you have in your life. And despite my fashion mood being all black everything, I’m actually in a great place in my life. I couldn’t help but fall in love with this Contrast Ruffle Pinstripe Sleeve Top from Shein, so I order it.
We live such busy and stressful lives, so it’s easy to allow other people to ruffle our feathers. This weekend, out of the blue, I got a call from an ex wanting to grab drinks and catch up. I haven’t seen this ex in years, but he holds a special place in my heart. However, when he reached out with a request to crash at my place, my reaction was a quick, “No!”
After I said no, he responded with a thumbs up and I knew he was mad. But immediately I thought, “Don’t chase pain. Or the people who cause it.” I love myself enough to set boundaries and make sure that the people in my life and those who try to pop in, stay within those boundaries. Don’t be afraid to say no and set boundaries or let go of anyone that isn’t breathing positivity into your life.
Now let’s get into the details about this ruffled top. I ordered it in a 2X and it was a little too big and I should have ordered it in a 1X, so I added a belt to give the top a little more structure.
I love how the top is solid black in the front and in the back you get the striped action. Also, these ruffles add the touch of feminity that I love. You can find this ruffled top here or use the search ID: 637973.
