I’ve been dreaming of the day where I just get to sit and relax for about a month. I wanted it to be in my own home. My own bed. My own pillow. So when I got back from Mexico it was only natural to do what I do best–NOTHING.
So I’ve done nothing for the right amount of time, it worked, and now I’m back to structure and consistency. YAY!
For the sake of running on schedule, I’d like to post this look from my time visiting my grandparents in Durango, Mexico. After the mission trip, I took Micah to the place where I was born. I immediately had to show him around the wood area.
For the look-around, I wore this maxi dress from Zaful. Which was perfect enough to feature today as I will be collaborating with them on a project I’m excited to announce with more details later.
This dress is perfect for me because of the ombre feel and the spot on length. The off-the-shoulder sleeves are to die for. I just love how well this dress looks in these neck of the woods.
The moment I saw this pretty sweater from Maurices my heart melted. Still on the hanger, I imagined the endless outfits this sweater could bring. With that said, this cut-out love was going in my closet. So for the first time, I paired it with this red skort from Forever 21. I’ve haven’t worn these bottoms as often as I’d like, so when browsing for what would look great with the sweater, I instantly knew these two would compliment each other perfectly. And they do! I’m always thrilled when I see the shades of pink and red mixed together. I quiet enjoy how these colors feed off of each other in such a way that love is transmitted in my soul. Oh to love…
Also on the blog are these heels again. They are new and they are on repeat.
In less than three days, Micah and I will be traveling to Yucatan, Mexico for a wonderful mission trip. I’ll have limited internet access, but I’ll be posting as often as I can. Until then, I’ll be sharing what I’m packing, and how I’m preparing to serve the Lord. As always.
I’m up early on this special day, the Fourth of July. It’s Independence Day. For me it’s not just a day where I realize or even celebrate how much freedom I have in this country, but it’s a day that fills me with joy because of what it’s done for my family. Yes, it’s giving us liberty, but sometimes I don’t acknowledge the pursuit of happiness aspect of what of the United States has to offer. We are filled with some much happiness here. The main reason is because we are filled with opportunity. That’s a great a freedom to hold.
Thanks to this country and its Founding Father’s I am a first generation college graduate, I am a teacher, I am a sister, a daughter, a child of God, a girlfriend, and a blogger, all of this is based on the opportunities I was given. I suppose it doesn’t matter how I got here, who my parents are, and what they’ve done to be in here, (trust me, they have sacrificed A LOT) what’s important is that they could. Without question. That in itself is grand. And I salute being American every day.
Today on the blog, I wore this pretty white top from the Buckle. The boyfriend jeans had to make an appearance of course. And the bandana allowed me to incorporate red because for some reason I don’t own red like I thought I did.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Fourth, that many fireworks are popped, and that we let freedom ring. Today and everyday. As always.
I’m so excited to share with you all my new mules courtesy of H&M. It’s tough living in Dodge City sometimes, as southwest Kansas isn’t always fashion friendly. It’s a constant struggle for me. But I love home. Anyway, a lot of my friends scorned me for even trying to buy mules, so I didn’t buy them, until now. When I saw these I fell in love with everything about them. They are cool. They are textured. They are of perfect height. They are versatile. I’m just ready to wear them 24/7.
What I’ve learned about living in a small town is that people aren’t always going to be in your favor, but in order to stay true to who you are, you have to leave those thoughts behind. I’m me unapologetic. I hope this blog reflects that.
Today, I wore the mules with my new top from Maurices, because of late, it’s my go-to shop for in store browsing. The top is delicate itself so the mules give it a nice compliment.
I hope you enjoy seeing these babies often. As always.
Today wasn’t a good day, weather wise. It was cool and windy. On top of that, there was just so much to do. I spent the majority of the day running up and down trying to get tiny tasks done. It was a bit frustrating that small items couldn’t be completed in a timely manner. It seems like during windy times frustration lurks around.
To help easy my frustration, I wore my hair in a ponytail. The top is an outlet find from Express. It’s new. Another new item are these heels I bought for a wedding I attended last weekend. They are from JCPenny’s. I have a feeling like these heels will be my go-to.
This weekend I’m taking a trip to Wichita to see my friend, it’s long overdue. Be sure to follow me on IG for videos and photo uploads. If not I’ll see you on Monday, as always.
