Faith Friday – Simple Reminder

I’m super proud of all the girls celebrating the many sales department stores are currently holding – I’m not going to lie, I’ve done my fair share of looking as well as shopping, but I just wanted to share a little thought with y’all – your worth isn’t based on the clothes you have. It’s not based on the brands you work or don’t work with. Your worth isn’t measured in the number of Instagram followers you have, what your engagement for the week was, or how strong you SEO is – your worth is found in Christ. Clichè to say, I know, but it’s true. It’s found in Him because He declares your worth as priceless. You’re beautiful, smart, special, and incredibly unique. Don’t become so enveloped with “things” that you lose your purpose. In a world where how “liked” you are is measured quantitatively, it’s easy to compare yourself to everyone around you and visually see their strengths. I’ve  dealt with insecurities and compared myself to girls only to realize they share similar insecurities. People only put their best self on the internet and deal with their struggles offline. You’re amazing girl! Now roll with it!

Striped Peplum Top and Pink Purse

peplum

I’ve been seeing a ton of Instagram bloggers share a super fun peplum top. Of course I wanted in on the action, but I wasn’t going to spend the money that these Insta-bloggers dropped, so I went thrifty. By thrifty, I mean TJMaxx! I found this dupe for $15.00 and I’m in love. I’ve worn it so many times in the last couple of weeks. It’s such a staple piece and will be a bomb transition item for Fall. You can wear it with anything – jeans, shorts, leggings – it’s so versatile.  I paired it with white jeans, also from TJMaxx, white pumps from Rack Room by XAppeal, a necklace from H&M, earrings from It’s Fashion Metro, watch by Kate Spade, and my purse is by Issac Mizrahi from Rugged Warehouse.

Lazy Day – Atheleisure Outfit

IMG_5568lazy 2lazy 3

It’s a new week y’all and I’m sharing an outfit like I’ve never shared before! There is an AMAZING trend going around called “Atheleisure”. It’s a modge-podge of athletic and leisure attire. Going to the gym? Atheleisure. Going to the grocery store? Atheleisure. Going for a run? Atheleisure. Taking a nap? Atheleisure. It’s always the answer. As a dance teacher, I basically live in athletic attire, even when I haven’t been “athletic”. This is one of my favorite outfits.

I found these amazing cropped leggings from Target and I die for the white color blocking. This precious graphic “lazy day” shirt is from Rugged Warehouse, but is by Express. It’s longer in the back, so I love it for teaching! My favorite tennis shoes are Nike’s and are literally 5 years old. They don’t have laces and are the most comfortable get-ups ever – I think they are called Free Runs.

What’s one of your favorite fashion trends right now?

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.

Dying For Tie-dye

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!

Darling Gingham Dress

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.

A Sucker For Seersucker

IMG_6283.jpgIMG_6315.JPGIMG_6295.jpg

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?
