Rushing Mishaps




Sweatshirt: Target  Skinnies: WHBM   Necklace: Rockport by Premiere 

 Today's easy throw together proves that I'm still having fun with these black skinnies. This was to be my outfit for the day. It looks so easy. So free. But unfortunately there are times when you need bring half of your home with you. And if you're anything like me, you try to carry as much as possible in one trip to save time.

This morning was no different! I rushed out the door with 3 bags, a guitar, keys and a smoothie to go.  I clamored over to my cool ride and began unloading. As I hopped into the front seat, I felt the fab sensation of a cold, thick liquid running down my arm and leg. I didn't take the time to put a lid on that smoothie cup, so I ended wearing it.  At this point, changing was not an option, so I did my best to mop up the milky residue off my pant leg. (It was more obvious than the pic below shows.) Nice. This is real life people!

In the real world, you don't always get out the door when you planned. In the real world, you may run around with a gross stain on your pants. In the real world, you may have cried through a song that you intended to actually sing. (Never sounds good.) This is the real world. I'm in it. I'm flawed, but boy am I thankful this does not define me. I'm a daughter of the one true King who cares about me and collected those tears in a bottle. My life song is pleasing to Him because I am found in Christ.  His strength is made perfect in my weakness.


And my applicable lesson for today? Carry less or put a lid on drinks to go. Now I close with a couple more pics from what I wore.
