Home For The Holidays


Well, it’s safe to say this holiday was a great one, but as always, it has flown by ! 
I was fortunate enough to be able to spend most of last week with my family and friends. I always love being able to go home. As you all know I am very much a homebody! Christmas Eve we went to my grandmas and had dinner with the family and then carried on the tradition of watching National Lampoon Christmas vacation in the evening and then 24 hours of a Christmas Story . Before my sweet husband , my sister and I would cuddle up in my bed and watch the marathon all night until Christmas morning . It was so exciting , but being able to anticipate it with my husband is just as beautiful and wonderful. This was the first year I could hardly sleep because I was TOO excited to give everyone else their gifts . It felt great that Caleb and I were able to bless others this year. The gift of giving truly is a lot more enjoyable than receiving .  
   

  

  
I mean, look at this moment . Priceless . My dad surprised Caleb and gave him his first ever muzzleloader . Caleb was definitely caught off guard but thrilled to be receiving something so sentimental. You can just feel the emotion through the picture . 

   
   
After enjoying the morning with my dad and his family , I got ready and went to my aunts briefly to exchange gifts , where I got to visit my little love . 
  

 
That night , we went to spend the night with Calebs parents where we exchanged gifts there as well. 

   
 
   
   
    

  I think we had some pretty great facial expressions. What do you guys think? 
All in all , it was a very eventful, exhausting , blessed and exciting Christmas Holiday!  If you were wondering about my attire on Christmas Eve , here are a few of the details .

   
 
  
Shirt – buckle ( it was a gift) I usually wouldn’t even look at this store , as I personally think it’s overrated and overpriced . 

Skirt/ Charlotte Russe 

Nude heels- Forever21 ( they always have great deals on shoes )
What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions/ favorite moment this season ?
Merry Christmas! Xoxo

Today’s dress was 40’s inspired . I’ve gotten away from this style of clothing for awhile to explore the bohemian side of things , but I felt that it was finally time to get back into it . The elegance and classiness of the 40s and 50s is what draws me in. I wore this to church this morning with a pair of off-white heels , pearl and diamond costume earrings and black cat eye glasses with gold and rhinestones .

Whether it be church , a business meeting , or work, this outfit is easy , comfortable and elegant . You cannot go wrong !

Dress – Goodwill
Earrings- forever21
Heels- Goodwill
Cat eye glasses – eBay

Such great finds , and amazing prices !
This entire outfit was under $20

Simple and easy ootd


This weekend I wore this outfit to work where I later was entertained by a good ole band called – Fox Hunt . I was struggling because I was scheduled to work all day and wanted something cute but simple . This outfit was just that.

Kimonos are lovely because there is such a variety out there – short, long, and color / pattern wise . They are great to throw on to really “spice up” a casual outfit . This kimono in particular is from Marshall’s . The tank top was from forever 21 , shorts from pacsun and black lace up boots from eBay. I’m all about comfort and simplicity is sometimes more , so I enjoy stocking up on cardigans / overthrows / kimonos etc..

Beach fashion

Hello lovelies !
Sorry for the lack of posting recently ; between school , work and my recent fitness journey , I haven’t dedicated much time to my blog ! Hoping to meet my posting goals per week !

Pictured above is myself this past week at myrtle beach! Before beach shopping, I mainly went to two places -Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe. Between the two stores , you cannot beat that style , especially with the amazingly affordable prices !

This skirt was so sheer and perfect to keep me nice and cool in that insane heat; the creamy lace cropped top was also very light material , both articles of clothing very perfect for extreme temperatures !

The beach was a blessing to say the least. I am very grateful to be back home and continue on the path and journey that God has for my life ! I’ve missed you all! Xoxo

ahh the thrill of thrifting! I love this outfit so much because all of it was probably a total of $10.

Goodwill can be your best friend! There are so many ways to make “old peoples clothing” more modern! . This flower dress was oversized and buttoned up, and was actually cute by itself but once I threw the blue jean vest over it I realized it definitely spiced it up and gave it a more modern touch.

Recently, I am obsessed with top knots, and messy hair buns. This was a simple, and fun hairstyle that I did. It was very quick and easy, and convenient, because my hair was out of my face all day. I think it gives very much of a hippie/ boho look. All of this look was super easy to achieve. So what are you waiting for ? THRIFT!
