What My Shirt Says #Passion4Fashion Linkup

Shirt: Winners Skirt: Old Navy Shoes: Walmart

When all else fails. Listen to the shirt, right?
I mostly love that it says to never give up. I mean, it would be so easy to just throw my hands up in the air sometimes and call it quits... but I'm much to stubborn for that.
I haven't talked much about it on the blog, but my husband has been off work since late January. He's battling a tough fight against his depression and was recently diagnosed as bipolar. It hasn't been easy but I'm proud that he recognized he was spiraling out of control and is seeking help. We're managing to get by on my salary in the meantime. I'm considering getting a part time job this winter if he doesn't get back to work... I wish I could figure out something to do from home, if you have any suggestions, let me know!

All this to say, I firmly believe that the best thing I can do for myself and my family every day is to 
Get Up
Dress Up
Show Up
Never Give Up

    The drape and length of your tank looks perfect with the length of this skirt!!!
