And the marathon continues...

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.1 Peter 5:10

For the last few days, I've found myself praying for people I've never met more than usual. The life of rapper Nipsey Hussle was cut short on March 31, 2019, and his untimely death has affected me more than I ever would have anticipated. I wasn't a fan of his music, but mainly knew of him from his relationship with Lauren London, but his death still hits hard.
When a man of his stature, he was in a gang - something I think is important to note, wants to build up his community in various ways such as creating jobs, providing youth access to STEM programs, and teaching ways of financial liberation, we have to recognize that as a loss for us all. His death impacts more than just those who knew him personally, but also those that benefited from his dedication to the betterment of our people. At the age of 33, his life was just starting in my opinion, but I don't think his legacy has to die with him. 
I stand with everyone working to uplift the community in ways that are noble and beneficial to everyone involved. I have been inspired by this man's legacy to keep the faith and do my part to better my community, not just for myself but for us all. The marathon is going to continue.

Being brief, I just wanted to touch on a few outfit details. 

Because we are in a warmer season, I've officially ditched my tights and let my legs have their freedom. I usually don't do mini dresses, unless it's a night time event, but one thing that made me love this dress was the long sleeves. It felt daytime appropriate given that nothing other than the legs were the focal point, thanks to the button -up neck and covered arms. 
With the weather being very wishy-washy right now, opting for my legs to show and have covered arms was perfect for me. I felt seasonally appropriate, while also weather appropriate too, something that I think is hard when we just start a new season.
