Boyfriend Blazer //

This boyfriend blazer from Shop Tobi is one of my favorite pieces! If you do not own one, you must get one! They are the perfect piece to be worn casually or a little bit more dressed up. I also LOVE these shoes. The burgundy color is so gorgeous. To be completely honest, this is how I pretty much dress on a daily basis. I like to look somewhat put together with minimal effort- but what girl doesn’t?

Braids and Wellies //

Hello, Lovelies! It’s been a while! A lot has changed in my life lately, so I’ve been pretty distracted. I’ll give a quick update and write a more detailed post soon.

I have recently started up a couple of different businesses. It is so great to be able to finally do the things that I love full time. I am working on my portfolio for my new photography business, as well as repurposing furniture. I buy old, antique furniture from estate sales and auctions and bring them back to life. I am working on a rather large project right now and it has been such a blast! I will link my Etsy shop to my blog shortly.

Aside from these jobs, I have been getting involved with some pretty incredible organizations. I can’t really go into detail about this one, but I am working with a few groups to rescue women who are being trafficked or are trying to escape the sex industry. I will also be working with young girls in juvenile detention centers, mentoring them and showing them their priceless value. These are some pretty intense ministries and your prayers will be greatly appreciated, for both myself and the precious women I will be working with.

This mini photo shoot was pretty spur of the moment. I recently bought these Hunter Wellington boots and can I just say how much I love them?! They are so comfy and so perfect for this crazy Florida weather we have been getting lately. I actually bought them for an upcoming trip to New York, but couldn’t resist wearing them sooner!

Bellus Threads //

It’s fall, ya’ll! We have finally been getting some beautiful weather here in Florida the past few days. It has been around 60 degrees during the day and down to 40 degrees at night. I am really hoping that it will stick around for the rest of the year!

A beautiful friend of mine recently gave me the CUTEST winter accessories. She is so gifted in so many ways and crocheting is just one of her many talents! I am absolutely in love with the boot cuffs and the scarf that she made me. I have an obsession with scarves and this one is just so cozy without being overbearing- it’s perfect! I have also been looking for a pair of neutral colored boot cuffs for this year, so I was so excited to receive these. They have gotten many compliments, too! Be sure to check out her Etsy shop, Bellus Threads. There are so many neat items that you can purchase and she even takes custom orders which would make great Christmas gifts!

Golden Tote //

I decided to do another outfit post before it gets chilly out. Of course we only have about two weeks a year of cool weather here in Florida, but I like to dress for fall, even if it’s still warm!

I have found God’s gift to women…it is called ‘Golden Tote‘. On this website, you can choose from a couple of different options. You will fill out a style profile and answer some questions. They have a tote for $49 with 2-3 items; you choose one item yourself and the other is a surprise they choose for you. Another tote is $149; you choose 2 items and they will send you 4-5 surprise items. Golden Tote also has a boutique online for those that choose to take the less daring route. All of their clothing is great quality and a good selection is also sold at Anthropology, but at a fraction of the cost through Golden Tote. Check it out! But beware, it’s addicting!

Art Feeds Collaboration //

Hello, Beauties! I was contacted by Art Feeds to do a collaboration post. This great organization provides free therapeutic art and creative education programs to thousands of children. Art Feeds sent me this adorable shirt to help spread the word of the amazing things they are doing.

This shirt is literally the softest t-shirt I have ever owned and I love what it says! ‘Create: it makes your soul grow’. This statement couldn’t be any truer and it’s a great way to start a conversation about the Art Feeds organization and spread the word to our communities.

This is an excerpt from the Art Feeds website on how it all started:

” Art Feeds began in one classroom with one child- a little boy who wasn’t being fed at home and who was not only lethargic & struggling with academics but also had incredibly low self-esteem. As Meg began doing art lessons with him, he showed tremendous progress through expression; art was feeding him in a way that was just as essential as food.

The art lessons quickly grew from just him to more classrooms and more children. So in order to fund the supplies she needed, Meg printed and sold shirts that featured “Art Feeds” and a blank written by that original little boy, paired with his handprint, which ended up with a heart in the middle and later became the Art Feeds logo. The blank was open for the buyer to fill in with whatever “Art Feeds” for them. The simple t-shirt project grew far beyond expectations and the story of this little boy spread as did the impact and reach of Art Feeds programs.

The story of this little boy is now the story of thousands of Art Feeds students who have together had the realization “What I’m creating has worth, therefore I have worth.” ”
