Steve Madden Poncho Coat

It is so hard to find coats that are stylish and fits my pear/apple shaped physique.

I took a trip to TJ Maxx and laid eyes on this beauty. It’s a poncho coat with buttons and a hood. Super warm. Has an adjustable cinched waist and it’s oh-so-stylish. It cost $89.

On this day, I was soooo tired. I didn’t feel like getting dressed or putting on any makeup. But Eden of Reel Clever Films had a booth at Eastern Market and I had to support. So, I dragged myself out of the house. Did a little beat. And went. Sometimes you just have to take that first step.

I am so thankful to have photographers in my life, especially since my camera gave out on me. Ugh! That’s another story.

My blogger friend, Lala and I, took a trip to the Detroit Institute of Arts. Before the snow fell in Michigan, we had a mini photo taking session.

Jeans are so hard to find for mostly all body shapes, especially since I have short, fat legs. So finally, I went to Burlington Coat Factory and found a pair of stretch jeans. OMG. They are nice and comfortable. Doesn’t even pinch my belly rolls either.

I got this peplum jacket from Torrid last year. Had to pull this staple piece out the back of the closet. I really love this shot! So laid back, which I rarely am. Haha.

“Your arms are showing? I thought you were Muslim. Lol. I’m so confused.” Welp. You’ll stay confused and then blocked. I’m angsty today because well it has been a throw-the-whole-day-in-the-trash kinda day. But, I have time in between anxiety to address confusion. Yes. I put my life on the net for all to critique. That’s cool. Do I wish I could go back to anonymity? Sometimes. Unfortunately folks think that since I’m behind the screen they can assume who I am through only a part of what I share. That’s not fair. Internet people are real people in real life. I share snippets of my life because it helps me cope. Secondly, because it helps other ppl cope. To share things they’ve never shared before or just get it off their chest or feel a little less alone in world. Honestly, I’m not arguing with or appeasing anyone about how I choose to live as a Muslim. I’m past that part of my life where I had to constantly defend my Muslim-ness. What I choose to say. Wear or not. Is between my creator and I. I don’t want unsolicited advice on what I should be doing. I’m sorry but the sleeves or lack of sleeves on a shirt isn’t enough to question my faith. Anyone’s faith! If you’d like to follow a sleeve wearing Hijabi then feel free. Lastly, 👏🏾I’m 👏🏾not👏🏾the👏🏾poster👏🏾child👏🏾for👏🏾all👏🏾muslim👏🏾women. Stop putting me on a pedestal. I’m struggling like the next person. Shit, I’m constantly questioning who I am. I don’t have all the answers. All I can do is try and live my best life. *Adjusts hijab* *Tongue pop* Has anyone ever shoved their beliefs or culture down your throat? How do you handle it? And, do you feel the need to be a poster child for your group? Any race and religion can answer. Let’s chat.
