This no jacket November weather in Michigan is awwwweeeesome! Heeyyyyo! The California in me is thankful for every warmer day we get! What about you?! Do you prefer warm weather or cold? I would take the snow however, I just don’t want the cold! •
If you’ve never purchased a scarf from @hm you should seriously consider it! They’re around $20/$25 and all of my favorite ones come from there, including this gray one. Soft, warm & always have great colors! Shopping for quality things doesn’t always mean spending more money, (I mean let’s be real, most times it does… but not always!) there are always treasures hiding in the ‘right price’ stores so keep an eye out for them! You might be surprised what some brands offer for the prices! Side note – I love cyber Monday, shopping + pjs and a mystery podcast all at once?! Sign me up!! I hope you guys found some killer deals! Happy Tuesday! 📷 by the amazing and wonderful (go follow her!!) @kelseyhettinga .

When I first approached a few local bloggers about an event concept I had, I didn’t anticipate the beauty that would come from it. Local creatives meeting each other for the first time face-to-face instead of just over Instagram, being able to feature apparel & accessories from around Grand Rapids, and even being the soft opening at an incredible new sandwich shop @grainsandwichshop to help promote their opening. It’s awesome to see how many people are impacted for good when you go after an idea, invest your whole heart & let the Lord lead.
Working with so many local shops & creatives was such an enlivening experience! Plus, connecting with my local community & building a network for each person to connect & grow was the coolest thing to watch! I walked away from the @meetcutecommunity event proud of what had been accomplished & proud of the fact that we created a space for local growth!
This (majorly) awesome faux fur jacket is from local shop @blcklamb & the beauty I styled it on is @rachelgabes – she’s an incredible photographer, guys! But aside from that she’s kind, sincere, relatable and hearing her story was so inspiring! Thanks for coming and letting me style you in this sassy number, Rachel! ❤️

I could hear music on the other side of this pale yellow door and although that may not sound scary to you, I was terribly nervous they would see me on their doorstep and come guns blazing out to get me! But let’s be real, with a soft yellow door and such cheerful potted flowers they probably would have offered me cookies.
Cheers to you sweet yellow door and mystery friends inside for creating such a welcoming and happy little space that made me feel both thrill and appreciation!
I hope and wonder if the owners of this lovely space feel the same emotions I did about what they created. I sure hope so! I’m (obviously) one of those people that thinks pretty deeply, I tend to hope that any ordinary day holds the possibility of growth or greatness & sometimes even hunt for it. Typically it’s the unexpected, subtle things that captivate me the most; like this small side entrance hiding alongside of the huge, stunning home it belongs to.
Maybe it’s the part of me that is rooting for the underdog, or maybe the part that is captivated by the little details, or maybe the space of my heart that believes in the power of small victories in achieving the big vision. Whichever it is, this little door seemed to catch my attention and allow my heart to wander with curiosity.
Not all of my photos have a story or enlightening moment behind them, but I’m proud of them all. Each one is a little step forward and each one gives me the opportunity to share a small piece of my heart with you! 📷 @kelseyhettinga .

I realize not every girl wants to wear boots that fall under the ‘masculine’ category, but I sure do! (I think it’s the bad a** in me 😏)That’s what’s so fun about understanding your personal style! If you love something a little obscure there is always a way to incorporate into your wardrobe! So, how the heck do you discover what your personal style even is?! How do you know which colors best compliment your skin tone, hair & eyes?! What about which silhouettes flatter your shape? Ooooh that one’s my favorite!
These are only a few of the questions we will answer during a styling session! It’s not my job to make your style resemble mine (unless you want it to of course!), it’s my job to help you understand your style, to help you feel confident, alive & secure in the clothes you wear and to put every detail together in a way that’s unique to you!
So many of my clients have become my friends and I’m so grateful for that element of my work! I am proud that my work has produced authentic trust & relationships.
Doing what you love means investing all of your heart and that’s a vulnerable place to be. I’ve experienced some unfair circumstances but chose to let those experiences evolve into lessons that caused me to learn and grow not discourage me from moving forward, even though I was tempted.
I read this on a recent post from @sarahbessey and I couldn’t believe how spot on it was! “The holy invitations to be brave with our life never end, do they? Everything we yearn for requires faith & patience, guts & grace.” Pretty sure that’s my motto for the next year. I needed that reminder that my business was a holy invitation to be brave, to trust God and keep going because he’s got me! He called me.

I’m 31!! #happybirthdaytome This shirt was a gift from @thecozinessconsultant (who also happens to be my sister!) & the saying couldn’t be more poetic when talking about the season of life I’m in. It’s been the happiest birthday! .
