Always a Bridesmaid, Never a Guest

What does one wear to a New England farm wedding? Late-August, just-hayed fields, heat, bugs…no heels, no air-conditioning, late-afternoon to late-evening…I mean, I was a little stumped.

Especially since I have never been to a wedding where I wasn’t part of the wedding party! When you’re a bridesmaid, you don’t have to worry about looking great, because the bride has already got that covered for you {remember this beautiful dress I wore for my cousin’s wedding and this pretty yellow one from my brother’s wedding?}.

This is what I ended up wearing. What do you think? Flat “snakeskin” sandals, an old-favorite floral dress, bright ikat cardigan, and pretty hair/makeup/jewelry details. I’m still wondering if it was a bit casual. Then again, the cute invitation said to, “Dress to impress the goats.” Ha! I love it.
Do you think they were impressed? 
xo!

Thursday Brights


Good Morning!

I hope you have a beautiful, bright Thursday, friends.
One that refreshes you with detailed love from God’s heart, shown to you through friends, family, and even strangers. I just love when God uses strangers in my life for a very specific purpose. Do you know what I mean? When you’re feeling sorry for yourself and you go to get a coffee on your lunch break, and you have the best conversation with the barista, who gives you your coffee for free? Or you can’t think of ANYONE to take over your nursery shift on Friday, but then a friend calls and asks if she can take your shift that day if you’ll cover hers on Sunday morning? Or your boss happened to stay late last night and leave a nice note on your desk? I think all of those details are love that God brings into our lives, to show us how much he cares. To lift our hearts and spirits. Oh, how much he loves us, through and through. 
And in light of that, I just have to throw my hands with hot pink and silver fingernails in the air. 
Blessings back to praise, 
ALWAYS.

Cherry Earrings

This is actually an action shot…see the flower in my hand in motion? But I liked it for some reason.

Color & pattern.
How cute are these? 
Also, my grandma and  I are sharing these earrings. 
Because she has a cherry-themed outfit and needs to borrow these. 
Legit. 
And I think it’s totally awesome. 
{waves to grandma!}
xo!
