Mattieologie: It's Just Different
When I think about summer in Atlanta, I usually don’t envision rain and 65 degree weather. But that’s exactly what August has been serving up here these last few weeks. Hence, why I’m wearing a sweatshirt without passing out from heat exhaustion. I’m so excited to get back into my blogging groove and create content. I was going low key crazy there without photographing myself in put together outfits. You know, I’m the type of person who likes to chronicle their narcissism. Also, I got new hair: BRAIDS! What do you think? Kinda going back to my roots. Growing up, I wore braids all throughout middle and high school. Brandy was my hero.

I don’t know if it’s because I had a gun to my head, but I’m excited. I’M EXCITED! I got a new pep in my step. Things are going REALLY well. (Can’t wait to share all the fab things I’m working on in September alone.) Things were going well before, but it’s just different…

A huge thanks to all of you for all of your kind words after the robbery. It truly meant the world to me.

    Mattie…I know what you mean about things being different! I was robbed recently via home invasion, but luckily, they just took my TV and wallet….and were polite in a way (strange I know). However, I am thankful that they spared my life…as I am worth so much more than a TV or wallet on my worse day! I am still me…but the experience makes you different!

  8. Love, love this look! The braids are so you and loving that you kept your signature sparkle with the shoes! Cute!

  9. I’m so happy to hear and see that you’re doing so well! I love this outfit, it’s so relaxed and masculine meets feminine. You’re giving me braid envy right now! I love it! And I can completely relate to the pep in your step after being mugged. Your life kind of flashes before your eyes and you’re suddenly so much more grateful for everything in your world. I’m so happy you’re okay :)
