STYLE STORY: PATCHWORK


Life is like a large piece of patchwork. 

Artists who create patchwork carefully select pieces of cloth and thoughtfully sew them together to create their beautiful finished product. But the pieces they use may not seem like they fit together. With the artist's masterful work, they fit perfectly.

This is so similar to life. 

In life, there are many moments where I think, "God, why did You bring this moment into my life? This is not what I wanted." Or I've thought, "Why was this door opened for me? It's taking me in the wrong direction!"

However, as life goes on, I realize that God purposefully brought those moments in my life and led me in certain directions for His beautiful and sovereign plan for me. My desires are often different from His, but ultimately, His ways turn out better and make me a better and stronger version of myself.

Speaking of patchwork, I paired a fun patchwork top (complete with a bow!) with white denim pants. To add a pop of color, I'm carrying a bold red-orange tote and wearing my favorite floral heels. A beautiful  and simple summer look to piece together!

  2. Sometimes I question the events of my life but I realize that God is still guiding me and protecting me. The scripture from Jeremiah 29:11 is a excellent reminder of God's promises for directing our life. Love your post because it reminds me of God's promise for my life!
