Fall Vest + Life Catch Up





Wow the end of 2016 feels like it is just going to flying by! So much has happened this year it’s crazy to sit back and think about it. The most insane part is the year isn’t even over yet. One thing I’ve noticed a lot about 2016 is I’m becoming a lot more sentimental… thinking back on events and situations where God was clearly moving. For those of you who don’t know I’ve been in the middle of a transitional season from one job to my new current job.

Change. A word you either hate or love. I like to think I’m always ready for change, but more realistically it depends on what kind of change it is. Fall is my favorite season, and it’s all about change. The leaves change colors and then drift to the ground as they fall off preparing for the coming winter. This is always a sweet reminder that change is a good thing in our life. I’ve been trying very hard the last few months to balance out everything in my life. To find that sweet spot of being productive but also finding time to do things you love!

Anyways other than me blabbering on about life and what not I wanted to brag on this vest! I’ve been on the hunt for a good vest for fall and winter for a whole year now. And finally I found one! If navy isn’t your color that’s ok, they also offer it in pink, cream, and olive green. The material of this vest is perfect it’s not bulky or heavy, it’s great for every day wear or to keep you warm on those chilly fall nights. I apologize in advance if you see this piece over and over again…

Starbucks Tip: for a more nutty flavor try a Chia Latte with Almond Milk 🙂

A Day At The Orchard















^^My Mom was cracking me up behind the camera




| Shirt // Jacket // Jeans // Bracelets // Shoes |

There’s some serious picture overload in today’s post but I just couldn’t leave any of these out!

At the tail end of our trip Chris and I stayed an extra day with my parents which was one of the best parts of driving! We went to one of my favorite orchards and picked apples, pumpkins, and bought the most delicious pumpkin spice donuts ever made. (seriously I had one this morning and it was too good) The weather was cool and simply perfect for a fall day. Spending a day at the orchard reminded me of all the reasons I love fall! The cool crisp air, the beautiful colors, the fashion, and the sense of togetherness. Obviously there was a bunch of laughter going on behind camera as well! My parents kept making me laugh so hard I couldn’t take a single serious photo.

I loved the outfit I wore to the orchard! This green army jacket goes over so many tops it’s a must have for this season, and who can resist a good plaid shirt? I know I can’t! Come the first of September I’m more than ready to tuck away all my shorts and tanks and pull out my plaid shirts and cozy sweaters. Unfortunately Arkansas weather doesn’t always agree with me. (booooo) So now I’m stuck in oversized sweaters and scarfs sweating in the heat. Good thing our car has AC!

I’m working on a must have fall wardrobe list for all of you and I’m not going to lie you will want to buy all the items! Check out last years list here.

Do you have an orchard day planned for this fall?!

Alice In Wonderland








“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then…”

Nothing is more fun than wearing a character based dress at Disney! My sweet cousin came fully prepared this trip with a stack of the most adorable outfits. She is a fashion blogger in the making. After very little persuasion I slipped into this fun little dress. Based off the movie Alice In Wonderland.This loose flouncy dress has the very popular Cheshire Cat printed all over it. Plus, it’s pink! No color speaks to me like the color pink does. Growing up Alice In Wonderland wasn’t in my top 5 favorites, but the older I get the more I love it!

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

We’re all a little mad in the end and I think that’s why I’ve grown to love this movie.

You can have this cute dress yourself, find it here!

We are have had a blast on our trip and I can’t wait to share more with you!

Road Trip Outfit





And we’re off! C and I are on our way to our long awaited vacation! This year we have a combination of driving and flying to Disney. I don’t know about you but I always preplan my travel outfits. This helps the morning of run so much smoother for my non morning person personality. By laying my outfit out the night before I’m able to mindlessly get dressed. Car rides are one of my favorite ways to travel. I love being able to see the changing landscape and crossing state lines.

Throughout my life thus far I’ve had the great opportunity to travel a lot for my age. A lot of plane rides and car rides have taught me to be prepared when it comes to what you’re wearing. Just because it’s your favorite outfit doesn’t mean you want to wear it while you squeeze down the tiny plane aisle or sit for hours on end in a car.

This is a great go to road trip outfit! Wearing something comfy and cute is a win, win situation if you ask me. These athletic leggings are thick enough I don’t feel like I’m wearing nothing and I really enjoy that! I find layering while traveling is best. This gives you the option to take off a layer if warm or add one if chilly. Depending on your plane, destination, or car trip you never know for sure what the temperature is going to be. This coat is perfect for the start of fall. It’s light enough to carry around, I’ve paired it with a simple maroon tank. And we can’t forget our white tennis shoes!

What’s your go to road trip stye? Messy bun and sweats? Or cute and casual?

Change of Season









What C really does during out photoshoots ^^^

This is one of my favorite outfits! Tall boots, white shorts, and my go to jean shirt, the ingredients for a perfect outfit. During this photoshoot I was cracking up watching C trying to take pictures and play Pokemon Go at the same time, ahh true love sacrifices folks. But seriously I had to talk about these Minnetonka boots. I got these boots last spring for a family wedding, all the girls wore matching boots it was adorable. To be honest I had no idea how much I would wear these, finally I had to give them a break and that break didn’t last very long.

Alas as the seasons change our wardrobes start shifting and changing too. From tank tops and sandals to blanket scarfs and booties, with a change of season all things start to shift in a different direction. Some people handle change well, others don’t… (i.e. the people who are throwing fits over the new the PSL being available this month.) My life right now is once again in the middle of transition from one season to the next. God has blessed me with an awesome new job opportunity and I have all the feels. The feels of starting a new job and leaving one you absolutely love. I’ve known for a long time that God has an ultimate plan for my life. If we had time to sit and chat over tea/coffee you would see how the past six months have led up to this transitional season. I’m excited to see how this new season is going to challenge and grow me. I learned early on that change is inevitable, you have two choices:

1) Be dragged kicking and screaming 

2) Embrace it. 

When you embrace change it doesn’t necessarily make things easier. Instead it allows you to except the inevitable and move onto what’s next. So what type of seasons are changing in your life?
