Polka Dots & Pearls

Do you have an outfit that is your husband's favorite? My husband loves polka dots & pearls on me! He always says, I look so classy in them. When ladies ask me for help on their style, the first thing I ask them is what their husband likes best on them. Men do have opinions, if you just ask them! Why wouldn't you want to dress to impress your man, first and foremost!? He is ultimately the one we want to look good for, right? There is no one I enjoy getting compliments from more than my husband!
So today, I wore his favorite! :)

You are Worth Dying For!

I saw this video last night on Facebook, and I teared up listening to it! It's a MUST-listen!


If only every woman in the world could hear this, how much would this change how women think about themselves?! I fight this battle every day to remind myself I am daughter of the Risen King! No matter what so and so thinks about me, or what so and so says about me, nothing will change the fact that I am a child of the King! What a great truth that needs to be taught to every young girl, teenager, and adult woman! Security in God = a Peace that passes ALL understanding!

You are beautiful.
You are smart.
You are funny.
You are kind.
You are unique.
You are worthy of love and affection.
You are never too much,
and you are ALWAYS enough.
You are precious.
You are a diamond,
A rose, a pearl, the most stunning of all God's creation.

You are worth more than you could EVER imagine.
WORTH more than the numbers on the scale,
Or the hair product you use, or shoes you wear.
More than how many girls wish they were you,
Or how many guys wish they had you.
More than the price tags on your clothes,
or the percentage on the top of your math test,
or even the number of followers you have on twitter.
Your worth surpasses ALL earthly things,
because in the eyes of the Lord God,
You are loved, and you are WORTH dying for.

Regardless of who you think you are,
Whether you model in a magazine,
Or you model pottery with your grandma.
Whether you're on the hot list or the not list,
Whether you're head cheerleader, or a high school drop-out
Whether you're Miss Popular, or you never had anyone you could call a friend.
Whether you love yourself and love your life,
Or you can't stand to look in the mirror and you feel as if everything in your life is falling apart.
Whether you're such a winner,
Or you feel like the world's biggest failure.

Regardless of who you think you are, the reality is,
You deserve Someone who will give up their LIFE for you,
Because YOU are POWERFUL and STRONG and CAPABLE.
Read about the women in the Bible, Esther, Ruth, Martha, Mary,
These women changed the world FOREVER.
And inside of you EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU is a women with that same POWER
and that same STRENGTH and that SAME WORLD CHANGING CAPABILITY,
and your responsibility is to find that women and SET THAT WOMEN FREE!

This is WHO YOU ARE,
And any voices in your mind that try to tell you differently,
Are from the ENEMY!
And the next time you hear that voice, you say,
"NOT ME SATAN," I am the Daughter of the LIVING GOD,
CHERISHED, LOVED AND ADORED ABOVE ALL THINGS, BY THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS,
FOR THE GLORY OF ALL THINGS!

I AM AWESOME.

Please, don't you forget it!

-John Jorgenson

Please share this with all your friends! I want every women to know how precious they are to God!

One Dress 3 Ways

I found this basic, olive green dress at Goodwill for $5, and even though by itself it's a plain, boring dress, my imagination ran wild when I saw it! I pictured so many different pieces with it! It's also a great example of how to transition a summer sleeveless dress into a fall dress! During my lunch break, I threw together 3 different ways to wear this dress.

This is what I wore to school today. (The scarf is brown..just doesn't look like it in this light!)

Here's the 3 different ways I styled this dress...literally I did this in 5 minutes, but if I had more time, I could've come up with 20!(The first picture is just to show you how basic and plain it is alone...)

Pinspired: Green & Cobalt


I am always looking for new ways to wear my favorite green skirt. Pinterest is such a great help in getting color inspirations and style ideas! It's where I go when I look at my closet and say, "I have NO idea what to wear with this item!" I always come away with NUMEROUS outfit ideas. So, I use pinterest as a search engine, and search whatever piece I want to wear, and thousands of outfits will come up! I love you, pinterest creator! Here's the pinned outfit from Mix & Match Fashion that inspired today's outfit.

My favorite outfits always consist of a colored pencil skirt, striped shirt, & a cardigan. I am obsessed with striped shirts, I probably have over 15...I love that they can be dressed up for church or work and then dressed down with a simple jean skirt and flats.

Here's a random, awkward shot..but I love the kick pleat in this skirt! :)

Blouse: Steinmart
Skirt: Goodwill (JCPenney)
Cardigan: Nordstrom Rack

Hope you had a great weekend! :)

Maxis & Monograms

Happy Friday! TGIF (Can you tell I'm a teacher?!) ;) Yesterday, when I was out looking for a nightstand for my bedroom at K-Mart, I moseyed my way over to the clothing section to see what was going on...
(I hadn't been in K-Mart in forever!) Luckily, they were having a huge sale, and I found the PERFECT fall maxi dress for $9! I'll be honest, I usually hate how maxi dresses/skirts look on me, and I almost didn't try this one on! But, I'm so glad I did, because it fits me great!

Many ladies have asked me if they could wear maxi dresses/skirts in the fall. The answer would be yes! Summery dresses can easily be made "fallish" by adding a cute jean jacket or cardigan over them. Especially, if you live in the South like me, and it's still in the 90's every day!

I paired my new maxi with a navy cardigan, brown belt, and my new gold "L" Monogram necklace! This was a perfect outfit to teach in all day!

I love getting to work along side my husband Monday-Friday, and in the ministry on the weekends, there in no great joy than to serve the Lord along side your man! :)

Leopard Two Ways

 photo PicMonkeyCollage2.jpg

Today, I am SUPER excited to be teaming up with Ginny from My New Favorite Outfit! Ginny has been such a big help to me as a "new" blogger. My favorite thing about her blog is that she stays true to her own style, and always looks great! We have decided to show you two different ways you can wear leopard today. I love how Ginny paired her gorgeous leopard dress with nude heels and black accents. She truly is a classy lady! Make sure to head over to My New Favorite Outfit, to see the details of her outfit! If you don't follow her, you definitely should!

My New Favorite Outfit

Now for my look: If you can't tell from majority of my posts, I am leopard obsessed. I own lots of leopard, it's been my favorite print for years, so I'm glad everyone jumped on the bandwagon too! One of my favorite looks is color blocking two colors together and throwing some accents of animal print!

Today I paired my burgundy skirt, mustard shirt, & leopard accents. This is a great option, if you're not ready for a whole leopard printed piece.
