// boots // dress // jeans //  sweater //

 Thanksgiving is right around the corner which means family get togethers, friendsgivings, turkey, stuffing, pumpkin everything and of  course an extra day to dress to impress! I’ve been playing around with mixing textures, prints, and stepping out of my normal wardrobe rut. I paired this outfit together this passed weekend and completely love it! I honestly can’t wait to wear it again in Vegas! Plus I wanted to give you visual proof I wear more than this comfy sweater that keeps popping up on my Instagram feed… so cozy…

Anyways I love how this sheer dress looks under the sweater. It gives a flowy whimsical dress more of a fitted look basically transforming it. This outfit not only is adorable but extremely comfortable, great for a full day celebrating thanksgiving! This year thanksgiving is going to look a whole lot different for me as I will be in the car on the way to Vegas for work! Stay tuned for all those fun updates, we plan on seeing the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam (I can’t wait to make all those corny dam jokes)

Let’s talk about the boots! One of my favorite pieces to this look. I’m pretty sure I have a sixth sense when it comes to spotting Corral Boots. I’m a baby cowboy boot wearer, but that doesn’t mean I love them any less! C says he loves when I wear these because he can hear my coming, the fringe flings all over the place it’s way too much fun.

What are you Thanksgiving 2016 plans?

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 🙂

“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!

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?

Thorns and Roses

The weather here has been sooooo beautiful! It’s been gradually getting warmer each week and the grass is growing faster than we can mow it. And I am loving it! I’ve been noticing a lot lately about how picture perfect we can make our lives look. With all the social media at our finger tips it becomes quite easy to fool our friends and family into believing our life has no hiccups. But if we are honest with ourselves, our lives are no where near picture perfect. Often times after a photo shoot I  drop the images into photoshop and touch up the imperfections. We try to photoshop our lives to look picture perfect via social media. But I ask myself, why? Why do we feel the need to hide our flaws, and imperfections. Imagine a world where we are encouraged by others imperfections. instead of tearing them down, and creating insecurities. My husband is the best, when I came home from a business trip the other week he had a fresh bouquet of roses in a vase on the table. As I trimmed the beautiful roses I pricked my finger, which often happens when I deal with thorns. Roses always have thorns, it’s part of what makes them beautiful. Would we stop buying roses just because they have thorns? On Valentine’s Day an average of 250 million roses are sold, and all those beautiful roses come with their own thorns. Our imperfections are what makes us beautiful. We shouldn’t feel the need to photoshop our lives. So I encourage you today let your thorns show, no one likes to be around someone who thinks they are perfect. Don’t be that someone. Everyone has a different story, and different thorns. Embrace your life today thorns and all because it’s beautiful.

xoxo stephanie
