Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I am back from my long hiatus. It's been a few months since I last posted. We just have had some things going on in our lives that have kept me from blogging but they have been good things. Nothing to worry over. I will share what in due time.

The year is almost over and we are now in my favorite month of the year! I know that Thanksgiving is the month that many of us count our blessings but for me it is around Christmas time. It's easier at this time to be grateful for me because it is the month we celebrate and reflect our Saviour's birth and and His life. I have an especially grateful heart when I think about all that He has done for each of us individually: the perfect example He has set, the peace He brings in our lives, and especially the atonement. The list is endless and I owe many of my happiness to Him. But what I would like to especially bring up is how grateful I am for His gospel, the truths and teachings He has shared with us. As I study His life and ministry, I have learned how to live my life through His perfect example and this way of living has brought so much joy and peace in my life!
Those are my own personal views of what Christmas means to me. I know it is different for all of us and some don't celebrate this Holiday. But whatever your religion or creed, I wish you peace and joy!

Prairie In The City

 Skirt: An indie brand (old) // Shoes: Alice + Olivia (see previous post for link). Shirt: Anthropologie (old)

This silk chiffon skirt is a treasured piece that I've had since I was 18! That's been almost a decade! Yeah, I'm getting old. It is alot more beautiful and delicate in person. This skirt screams prairie/country bumpkin, but pair it with more sophisticated shoes and a floppy hat, and it makes the cut for urban dwellings. I love anomalies in literature...and apparently in fashion too. Happy hump day!

Life is a Zoo


 Shoes: Alcie + Olivia // Pants: Free People // T-shirt: Modcloth // Purse: Kate Spade // Sunglasses: Rayban // Hat: Thrifted

I am big on comfort, which I am sure my blog has completely mislead you about this. In reality, I wear comfy leggings and airy, slouchy tops most days-effortless is what I am all about, at just about any given day. I somewhat revere and admire those fashion bloggers that dress like they are about to step on the red carpet, with every outfit. But that's what sets them apart from me. I am lazy and they are not. They think out every detail of their outfit while I just sometimes hope what I throw on matches. I will one day master effortless chic day just like Olivia Palermo or Erin Wasson has. I will one day throw something on with my eyes closed and I will look fabulous! One day. Yeah, I've got a long way to go.

This outfit is an example of what I like to wear on a more regular basis. Comfortable footwear is very important to me-but of course it's gotta be cute as well. Let me impart some of my retail wisdom with you: spend money on something that you will get use out of, such as comfortable shoes without sacrificing style. It will save you money in the long run because if you buy those skinny heeled pumps, you will also have to buy the comfortable ones- as soon as you realize you can only walk a block in those heels! And those skinny heeled pumps will mostly be just eye-candy in your closet. Aren't I the fashion sage? Not really, I am just learning through the years. I hope you have a fantastic day!

Counting Sheep


So, I once in awhile I like to post something that will make me feel like there is a little bit of substance in my blog, between all the lace and the tulle. I like to think I am not obsessive with fashion, so I throw in something that will show for this- like what I do with my personal life when I am not shooting outfits.These photos are from a few Sundays ago when we decided that our relaxing activity would be to take a drive out in the country. We pulled over on the side of the road and watched the sun go down on this little sheep farm. I love rustic and country sights like these. It makes my heart happy.

Micah and usually do an little activity together on Sunday. Whether that is to take a stroll through the golf course in our neighborhood, do a short hike at some park somewhere, or go for a scenic drive. I look forward to these mini adventures. It's so relaxing and helps us wind down for the upcoming hectic week. Sundays can be bittersweet because it's a hang loose kind of day but yet the upcoming week also looms on this day. But regardless, Sundays are just there to enjoy. I hope your week goes well!
