Velvet Embroidered Bomber Jacket

Bomber jackets. I have had my eye on them for a while but hadn't purchased one yet. I was typically looking for a normal green one that was pretty plain until I saw this beauty. I saw this embroidered velvet bomber from Vici Dolls. It is definitely a very edgy trend but I love it. Embroidery is very trendy right now and so is velvet so why not put the two together? I was a little worried about the fit of the jacket and was hoping it wouldn't be too big. When I got it in the mail and put it on, the fit was PERFECT. Just how you want a bomber jacket to fit. Not too tight and not too big. I decided to pair this trendy bomber jacket with my favorite Levi jeans, a ribbed bodysuit, and my new pair of pointy toe pumps. Remember that you can use code "mumu20" at checkout to receive 20% off of your entire purchase at Vici Dolls including this amazing bomber. 

I wanted to touch really quick on a message from Elevation Church. The message states that "When you focus on everything that could possibly be missing, you miss everything that could be possible." Steven Furtick has been preaching this recently and it has been an amazing message for me. With all that I have had going on this year it can be easy to look at the glass half empty instead of half full. For example, one thing that I think about a lot that brings me down is the fact that I do think I have a great family but I have no relationship with my dad and he could honestly die at any second. That really scares me and leaves me feeling empty inside and leaves me focusing on what is missing. All of my other friends seem to have dads who are present in their life and who love them and who have always been there for them. Why can't I have that? But the truth is, instead of focusing all of my thoughts on what is missing I could be focusing on all that I have and all that is possible. I have an amazing husband who loves me more than anything in this world. I have an amazing mom, grandparents, uncle, and in laws. I have the world's most amazing friends. I have a job in blogging that I am extremely passionate about that is doing very well for me. I have a roof over my head and I have everything that I could possibly ever need in life. Although there may be things missing in my life, the good news is that there are so many new possibilities in life. God has a reason for everything. Although my heart may ache over what is going on with my family, He could be preparing me for something much bigger through this struggle. Who knows, one day I may be able to speak and help others who have gone through the struggle of family addiction. I pray that this week instead of focusing on what is missing from your life, that you could focus on all that is possible. Looking at the glass half full and trusting in God is a lot better than the latter.

  1. Oh Katy! I don’t know you, but my heart knows your struggle. I never had a healthy relationship with my father. He was an angry, stubborn soul with internal struggles I couldn’t fix. I beacme an angry girl for having a dad who didn’t care about me. Caring for him during the last few years of his life were some of the hardest days of mine. The grief of physically losing my dad was huge, but I experienced a grief so much bigger. I lost someone who I longed to be close to. I lost the one person I wanted to love and love me the most. I couldn’t release the guilt of failing at my relationship with him. Did I try hard enough? Did he know I loved him even though I hated him? Even though I didn’t have a relationship with Jesus during that time, I know He heard the cries of my heart. We are daughters of a King who loves us more than our parents ever could. May you feel His tender mercies and comfort as you navigate the broken pieces of your heart. They will be made whole through His everlasting love.
