It’s Wednesday. I’m finally over a crazy Summer cold (the worst). I’m so excited to share this outfit with y’all! First off – this pink tank. Can we just take a second…omg…so gorgeous! I purchased it from the JCrew factory outlet last season and I’m so excited to finally put it to use. It’s 100% polyester and super soft and breathable, plus the color is to die for. These are my go-to white jeans from TJMaxx by the brand Love Fire. My shoes are from H&M and are seriously so comfy. I’ll probably wear them everyday! This dainty gold choker is from Jane.com by the brand Cents of Style. My bracelet is from JCrew and my tiny star earrings were from American Eagle. I’m loving all the fun outfits that are being introduced to stores, but y’all, I am NOT a fan of all these crop tops! What are your opinions?
I’m so excited to share this week’s Faith Friday with you guys. Be sure to stop back by on Friday to read how God directed my calling.
I was leaving home one evening to go to a nearby town. Normally the drive is only 10 minutes, down one single road. I left my house with a plan. A 10 minute mission. 2 minutes into my “plan” I hit a road block. I just brushed it off and took a different route. It would be longer, but I still knew the way. You’ll never guess what happened next. The road I was planning to take instead was also closed. Instead of turning around and going back home, I stayed the course. I was nervous. The sun was setting and I was in unfamiliar territory. Thank goodness for road signs!
I finally made it to my destination. But not after thanking God for leading my through some beautiful farmland with a beautiful sunset. He knows my heart LOVES driving and finding new ways to get places, and he also knows how stressed I get when things don’t go as planned. He combined those two to teach me such a simple lesson – just follow Him. He knows where I will end up. He knows my future and He knows my past.
“If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:26
Happy Wednesday friends! Two of my favorite trends for the Summer are gingham and anything off-the-shoulder. I’ve found the most perfect combination of the two wrapped into the sweetest dress. I purchased this dress from It’s Fashion Metro for less than $20 – which is a steal compared to similar dresses from department stores. I die for the adorable bow details! It would be super fun styled with a belt to add shape, pops of bright colors, or even neutral accessories. I paired the dress with my favorite monogrammed necklace from Etsy, brown clutch from It’s Fashion Metro, and my favorite mules from Belk.

If you’re looking for a great spring/summer dress, I’d highly suggest this one from TJMaxx. I love the way it fits – it’s fitted around the waist and super flowy. I love that it is short sleeved, so it is appropriate for any function. I’d definitely wear this to a shower or graduation. The blue floral print is beautiful and classy. If you followed me on snapchat last week, you’ll know that I almost passed up on this dress. I couldn’t decide if it reminded me of a grandma or not (no offense grandmas)! As a girl in her early 20’s it’s hard to find clothing that is modest but doesn’t look too mature. I still want to be sassy, but I don’t want to wear anything unless I’d wear it in the presence of the Lord lol. This dress is it. So, word of advice, buy the dress and rock it! Happy Monday y’all!
