Soul Sistas

As my friends and I were walking around shopping on this gorgeous Miami day, we stumbled upon the DASH store.  We had to go in to check out what these Kardashian girls are all about.  I immediately saw this “SOUL” long sleeve tee folded on a table right when we walked in.  There was one left and it was so conveniently my size…I knew I had to get it!  Being from the south, soul means everything to me.  Literally, I think it’s in my blood.  Whether it is the food I was raised on, the people, the friendships, the music, our accents, it is all full of soul and I love every bit of it.  I know it’s such a simple tee, but what is written on it is such a rich word that I think many people can relate to.

Any time I hear the word soul, I think of my best friend Tara.  We met on the first day I walked into Nordstrom for a job interview, and she hired me shortly after.  We worked together for several years and became best friends quickly.  In 2005, we ended up moving to Charlotte together to open Nordstrom at Southpark mall.  We were in a meeting with HR and had to do an icebreaker to get to know all the other managers that were going to be our colleagues.  We were put into groups and had to answer some questions to get to know everyone.  One of the questions was “what is your favorite food”?  I’m sitting there thinking “I don’t have a clue, southern food, the list it too long haha”!  Tara’s turn came around and she goes “soul food”…just like that.  She and I share a love for food and many other things, and she’s incredibly special person to me, who is full of soul.   I hope you enjoy this and feel inspired not only in your everyday outfits, but also in the simplest everyday things in life.
