Raw hem denim & heels allllllll day long YASSSS! Clear, strappy heels are amazing for shorter gals that want to elongate their legs. Denim with personality, like a raw hem or flared leg, adds an easy visual element that immediately gives your outfit flair you don’t have to put extra thought into! It’s all in the intentional details, my friend! .

I (freaking) love boiler suits, but it’s hard to find the perfect one for your body & personality! I LOVED the color of this one but it was all up in my business – if ya catch my drift. Siiiiggggh. So close.
Do you like these jump suits?! If so, do you have one or do they make you a little nervous?? Remember that feeling a little nervous to wear something you LOVE is exactly what you’re looking for! Happy 76538397th snow day, back into hibernation I go.

Purging & rebuilding feels so dang gooooooooood!!! Get rid of the stuff that you constantly second guess or better yet, get a second set of eyes to help you see things differently! Maybe items will go but just maybe you’re sitting on treasures just waiting to be styled and worn!
Is it faded? Misshapen after the laundry? Worn? Pitted out? Does it fit a little weird? Does it wash you out? Does it make you feel boring or insecure?? Get rid of it!! There is nothing that can’t be replaced for something you’ll love & feel confident in!

Last falls go-to is this falls go-to! This @motherdenim faux fur jacket has been one of my favorite purchases for a number of years in a row! Our closets should be full of both timeless pieces & current trends. This jacket can easily be worn with a T-shirt (I snaked this one from my husbands closet) & jeans, a little black dress or dressed up with added textures like velvet, leather or sequins for the holidays! Good quality statement jackets are always worth investing in. ✨

Red! Leopard print! Leather! Faux fur! 4 of my favorite things. 🤤@aliceandolivia is one of my favs for their eclectic vibes. I’m a texture and color person through & through! The more you mix the two the happier I am!

Today has been one of those days, ya know the kind where you’re left asking, “what the eff is happening?” Yeah, they blow big time! It’s so like us humans to sit and wallow or invest all of our worries into rough situations; but let me just say that is not how I’m going to live my life! If we spent as much time believing we CAN, we ARE good enough, we DO have what it takes and actually DOING something to change our circumstances and a whole lot less time being crippled by fear of what might never even happen, then my God we would be much healthier people. So, here’s to staring a tricky situation in the face and throwing a solid knee jab straight to its undercarriage! You are worth the fight to make your life what you’ve always wanted! Go get em girl!

We just spent the week with some of our closets, most dear friends from our previous home city, San Diego. I am so filled up and grateful! Our week was spent making new memories, vulnerably sharing challenges and reminding each other that being together and living in each moment with people you love is like splashing cool water on a rosy-cheeked face. It was so nice to slow down and be aware of the places, spaces & people who enrich our lives so much; especially to share it with someone who I adore so greatly!
I’m feel replenished. 📷 @kaleighdsimmonsphoto

You walk into a store & see this killer outfit on a mannequin, I’m talking like the trendiest white top with the most perfect ruffled sleeve & awesome cropped, raw hem jeans – you’re drooling! You get the goods and go into your fitting room only to discover that the cropped jeans are almost full length and the top looks like it has extra fabric in all the wrong places… uuuuuugggggg!! Common misconception – anyone can walk into a store and buy the same, cool clothes. The truth – that is a freaking lie. Shopping for you in your entirety means buying clothes that only come to life when matched with your body, personality & life style! The crazy thing is that even if a range of body types can pull off a certain style not all of those bodies & their skin tones can sport the same color, and color is a major key element to any wardrobe.
I LOVE to share how women can determine the right fit for your body type, the emotions that drive our shopping habits and how to start building a wardrobe that compliments and empowers your everyday! If you need some help or know someone who does send them my way!

Dancing into our weekend and feeling so very happy about it!! But seriously, if you’re grumpy go crank the music and dance your buns off – works for me on an almost daily basis! Ya know what else works on an almost daily basis?? Denim jackets! Game changer. They come in every fit, shade & style you can imagine! What’s your jam?? Distressed? Oversized? Clean lines? Light wash? GF I encourage you to find the perfect denim jacket and don’t be afraid to wear holes in the elbows – love it well and wear it often! And don’t forget to dance in it!! Style tip: don’t be afraid of a denim jacket, search for the one that offers you all things you hope for and go for it! Wear it with dresses, T-shirt’s, denim on denim, over a hoodie… I’m convinced there’s no wrong way! Happy Friday! ✨🌵

I was thinking about this sweet shoot I styled & I’m falling in love with it all over again! Look at the moment of that dress though!! 🤤 ••
I hope you guys had the best long weekend! I found the tastiest rainbow veggie + lime crema salad recipe that I’ll make for the rest of my life, suh gud! But the best part was having a sleepover with 2 of our besties @kelseyhettinga & her husband Tim. We made margs & watched a movie then they crashed in the guest room. Kelsey and I made coffee together in the morning, got ready & went shopping and then prepped food for a bbq with the rest of our besties! @kaleighdsimmons @amberannie @ @djorn0.
My heart is so filled up & so grateful for our little community of buddies! 📷: @helloimemmaquinn
