If you’re like me, there are days when you feel like staying in your pajamas all day. Most of those times, staying in your pajamas isn’t an option. I’ve put together an outfit that has the same comfort level as good ole pj’s, but is more fashionable and practical. Let’s start with my top. I purchased it when I started high school…so like ten years ago (yikes). But I love it, obviously. You can find a similar top here. My trousers are from Forever 21 – similar pants are linked here and here. Lastly my sandals, which I’ve worn almost everyday this Summer, are from Target – you can find them here. I’ve also gotten a few questions about my jewelry lately. Most of my accessories come from It’s Fashion Metro. They have trendy jewelry, purses, hats, and sunnies at ridiculously low prices. It’s definitely my go-to place for accessories. Let’s tackle this week head on. Also, don’t forget about the giveaway I’m hosting in partnership with Jord Watches. You can enter at the bottom of my latest Jord Watch post!
Nothing beats a cotton sundress in the Summer time. Nothing also beats a $7.00 – on – clearance – sundress! I knew this was coming home with me before I even saw the price, which then assured my purchase. I love the flow-y cotton fabric, and I’m OBSESSED with the neckline. High necks are my jam. The dress has somewhat of a synched waist, which is super flattering on most body-types. I paired it with neutral accessories. Now to the important stuff…where everything is from! The dress and clutch are both from It’s Fashion Metro; the shoes are from Old Navy; the sunnies are mega old and I’m not sure where they are from! Let’s pray this week is a quick one. Have a great week friends!
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.

I found this precious seersucker button down at Forever 21 and have been wearing it non-stop ever since. It is ever-so-slightly oversized so it is perfect for keeping cool in the heat of the day. I’m a southern belle, so you already know I’m gonna style it with white jeans and a monogrammed necklace! Similar tops can be found here and here.
To start off this week, I want to share a little excerpt from a book I’m reading called “Uninvited” by Lysa TerKeurst. “Pain is the invitation for God to move in and replace our faltering strength with His.” Now, is it Friday yet?
It’s time to be bold y’all! I’m talkin’ be bold with your life AND your statement earrings. I’m swooning over these gems that I found at It’s Fashion Metro for less than $6.00 a set. They make the perfect, sassy statement all while staying in budget. Similar earrings will run you upwards of $20. I love the detail of each piece and the fun colors. All three are very lightweight and don’t tug on my ears *praise*. So, do yourself a favor and go check out the selection at It’s Fashion!
Sleep? What’s that? Yeah, I’ve been having tons of sleepless nights recently, you know trying to figure out the meaning of life. What should I do? Where should I go? Where should I stay? Thoughts are tricky. Thoughts are especially tricky for someone who doesn’t like losing control. Being in a state of uncertainty or doubt is a control freaks worst nightmare. When I ask God to take away my anxious thoughts and bring me peace and rest He reminds me that the greater the storm the brighter the rainbow will be when it is finished. Hang in there friends. We’ve got this!
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!
