22 Days of Summer Fashion-Floral and Stripes

Welcome back to my 22 days of Summer Fashion! Today I’m mixing floral and stripes with my top and handbag.

You all know I love color and this floral top definitely has color! I styled it with my favorite pair of mint jeans.

22 Days of Summer Fashion-Floral and StripesI purchased this striped handbag from Gap last summer and I found it during our recent move. Ha! They don’t have this bag anymore but I did link some straw handbags below.

I did a front tuck with this floral top and left the back hanging out.

Beauty For the Heart~~I have shared this poem before but it’s too good not to share again!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out.
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are –
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit. – by Author Unknown

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14

Have a blessed day!
