A Pretty Little Bird Printed Number

Today, I want to talk about a little big thing called hatred. I know that's a little lot depressing for this Wednesday morning, but I need to get it off of my chest.

First off, you have the right to hate me. I get it. It's a free country. 

I don't expect you to agree with everything I believe.
I don't expect you to laugh at the same things I find hysterical.

While I truly hope and pray that you don't feel that hatred towards me, I just want you to know that if you do, there is n.o.t.h.i.n.g. I can do about it. Therefore, the solution? Continue on with your life and let me live mine.

You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world... And yet, there's still going to be someone who hates peaches.

Vent sesh complete... Moving on! Take a look at this pretty little number I totally rocked this weekend...

Necklace // Molly Suzanne
Dress // Kiki La'rue
Jeans // Old Navy
Flip Flops // New York and Co.

I sorta, kinda, obviously love it a whole ton! My fam and I spent all of Sunday afternoon at my Grandma's sharing old memories of my Gramps who passed away exactly a year ago on Saturday. It was refreshing, hilarious, and so stinkin' good to finally spend a whole weekend with family savoring and celebrating every minute.

Of course the day wouldn't be complete without some fun pictures! Oh, to be a blogger. :)

"Not everyone is going to like you and not everyone is supposed to. If everybody likes you, everybody understands you, and everybody includes you... You are not standing boldly enough for Christ. When Christ is in you it sets you apart. Loneliness is not an indication of abandonment, it's an invitation to intimacy with the One who knows you better than anybody else. It may be costly to do God's will, but you must remain confident in His reward..."

I have NO idea how in the world someone could hate you??? But I love that peach quote, so true! Keep your head up pretty girl!

Katie said...

I can't imagine why anyone would hate you, your blog, or anything else about you! But the best way to deal with it is to shrug it off and keep goin'.

That IS a cute dress! I like it over the pants like that.

Love this post-- the outfit AND your message! :)

leelee said...

Love the dress. And the quote.

Karri said...

Youre one of the most upbeat, positive bloggers I've some across. So why anyone would hate on you is beyond me! But you're right...haters gonna hate. So best to just keep on keepin' on.

Also - that dress is way cute!

Pamela said...

Love this! Not sure why anyone wouldn't like you! You're the sweetest!

Jen said...

People are crazy to not like you!

Melissa said...

LOVE this dress! I also adore how you paired it with pink jeans! You seem to have such a great and positive outlook on everything, I can't imagine anyone expressing hatred toward you!

That bird print is so cute and it pairs perfectly with those pants. Your smile is contagious :)

Tara and Devin said...

Can I just say I love following you in IG and your blog is adorable! The other day when you ran more than 6 miles I literally squealed! You are so amazing and have such determination! Keep up the amazing work!

totes, put a bird on it. I love that saying. It brings comfort that not everyone is going to like you, and that's okay!!

Gina Alyse said...

I love this so much! I cannot get enough of bird patterns--they're my favorite! And thank you for talking about hatred. Those were some things I needed to hear.

xo, gina

Kim Bird said...

Love you blog! And your outfit is to DIE for!

Jordan said...

Love that outfit!

I just don't understand why people write mean comments to others. If you don't like someone, don't follow their blog/social media/or whatever else!

Natasha Gregson said...

The quote about peaches is so true-there will always be someone who doesn't like what your'e doing but I love your advice :) Live life your way, I always think I will never please everyone so it's important to try and please myself! Love the outfit btw, the dress is so pretty, especially the pattern :)

Hallie Oceanside said...

I don't understand how anyone can hate you!? You are the most genuine, heartfelt, most amazing women I know.

Must just be jealousy;)

keep on keeping girl, you are the best!


Sarah Tucker said...

You DID rock that outfit! I am jealous you are in pants. They would melt right on me if I walked outside!

Thanks for linking up!

Ash said...

Love your outfit... I have been wanting something with a bird print for a while! And you're exactly right... you can't please everyone! As long as you're pleasing God though, it will all work out. =) Great post!

Fash Boulevard said...

Ahhh, I love this dress so much. I'm kind of developing an obsession for tiny bird prints... hmm. Fabulous as always, love. If you get a sec, I'm sharing my Vanity Fair feature on my blog today. :) xo
