Fall Dressy

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It’s SWEATER SEASON and I have officially fallen (get it?) in love with the sweaters at Elysian. We have QUALITY sweaters and I refuse to settle for anything less for something that needs to be super durable! I have now bought three sweaters from there and my closet is still growing. It’s always soft, classy, dressy, comfortable, breathable, flexible, and retains heat. I can’t wait to continue to dress up sweaters this season. One of the big reasons I love fall/winter is all the layering you get to do!

‚ú®WOMAN CONF 2017

The whole theme of the weekend was “Victory”

The first night, Darlene Zschech spoke. She spoke about Romans 8:35-37 and how “overwhelming victory is ours.” Jesus came so that we can have FULL life. She taught us to pray with a FIGHT. We bring angels against the enemy – not flesh and blood! HE stands by His word.

She went over Psalm 68:21-27, an interesting passage, but ENCOURAGING to someone fighting a real fight. “You can breathe girl, I’ve got the enemy under my feet.”

One Stop Outfit

Happy Friday¬†lovelies! I cannot believe that it is already April 21st…Didn’t April JUST get here?

Last weekend my family visited me for Easter and we got to do a lot together, including shopping! I always love to take people to the Bentonville square because I think it is the coolest and cutest thing. I wanted to stop by my favorite boutique there called Elysian¬†to look for a last-minute Easter dress (it was Saturday). I was so excited to see their new location, it’s beautiful! If you live in Northwest Arkansas, you should check them out. They have wonderful, unique items for a great price!¬†

Warby Parker Haskell-Flash Sunglass Launch

Hello everyone! I hope you have had a great start to your week. It seems like the weather is getting nicer and summer is quickly approaching!

Today Warby Parker launches their new sunglasses line, taking a twist on their classic Haskell frame! If you use Warby Parker, whether its for sunglasses or eyeglasses, you know they seek to satisfy and meet the needs of their customers! I fortunately don’t have to wear eyeglasses quite yet but plenty of my friends do and I know they love getting to test out the Warby Parker glasses using their Home Try-on, where you pick frames that you like, sent¬†all right to the comfort of your own home, you get to try them on, and decide which one you like best. How cool is that?¬†

This just gets me even more excited for their sunglasses launch today! Summer is just around the corner, and so is the need for more sunglasses…

Post-Vacation Depres–ENJOYMENT

Okay so I am not going to try and hide it and come out and say I definitely had post-vacation depression Friday and Saturday after coming back from the most lovely coast in America. (not serious clinical depression but I was bummed, which is out of the ordinary for me) There is no way to express how much I adore the west coast, its mountains, its rocks, its people, its cities, its weather, its vibes. It calls my name. It felt completely unreal. Ever since I visited Oregon in 2012, the west coast has all been a dream to me. I dream about it all the time. I crave for it as I double tap the PNW photos scrolling through my Instagram. So when I was finally able to live that life again.. I swore I was in a dream. I was. But it was real life. It reminded me of the wonderful things that are ahead. Continue reading

A Monday in California

AAAHHHH I am still freaking out that I went to California this week. I was so blessed to get to go to San Francisco for my spring break with 3 of my best friends. We were there Sunday through Thursday. 

I knew that in going to California, my outfits mattered. I brought the best of the best that I had. I’m so excited to get to share with y’all what I chose to wear on Monday.¬† Continue reading

Fashion – Just Wing It

Today is a Monday and I am cozied up in my dad’s home with him and my sister. With our Christmas tree still up and our decorations still showing, a storm is blowing right through, postponing my trip back home to Fayetteville. I love rainy days. But I only love them when I can spend all day at home. I’m stuck now but that’s okay.

Flashing back to Wednesday…¬†

I spent a bunch of days last week window shopping and Wednesday I bought one shirt at Forever 21 for only a dollar! How did I do that? The Forever 21 Credit Card. I had a $10 reward and used it on a shirt that was $10.90. I literally found this shirt in the dressing room while my friends were trying stuff on. It was soft, jersey type, see through, just my size, and long. SO RAD!! I tried it on over my crop shirt and thought, “What the heck, looks great with this outfit,” and I got it. It was a dollar.

I fell in love with this jacket at Forever 21! I want it so badly but I am trying not to spend much money at all because I am saving up for a mission trip in the summer. So I took a picture for a later date if I still really want it.

So HERE is the shirt I bought at Forever 21 for only a dollar. Underneath the shirt is a blue crop from Forever 21 that says “wild & wonderful”

My jeans are from Old Navy, shoes are brand new Nikes I got for Christmas, the suede NY cap is from Boohoo, the sparkly choker is from Forever 21.

Jill and me had a photoshoot. SHE’S SO CUTE AND STYLISH. Her shirt is from Maddie’s closet (her sister), new bling from Claire’s (the store), and Converse from Santa.

I had a fun day at the mall and have had a fun week of rest in Louisiana. I am ready to be home but I don’t ever want to rush anything! I truly try to enjoy every moment because I believe you can find purpose in everything. It is great seeing my forever friends and my family. I love them so much and wish I could be better at long distance relationships! I love being present where I am though.

Well I hope you all had a very happy New Year and wonderful holiday time! You made it to 2017! It’s a new year. I love new things. Really it’s just another day to me, though. I am still me and the best is still yet to come!

xx, Claire
