When twirling goes skateboarding.
Here’s a rainy day Friday quote for ya that has me feeling challenged and inspired: “True hospitality is when someone leaves your house feeling better about themselves, not better about you.” Shaun Niequist ❤️ @thecozinessconsultant is the BEST at this, I always feel poured into and surrounded by cozy, real love!

Shall we start dabbling in spring layering?! 😍 it’s almost time to lose the chunky, oversized sweaters and the wool socks for keeping those piggies warm! (Yeah, almost time… I was completely freezing in this picture. Waaahh!!) Stripes are always a good idea! You can go with horizontal or vertical, mix stripes with floral or layer striped pieces together, there are always fun options when it comes to stripes and they can be worn to compliment all body types! (This one has more fun detailing on the back! Stay tuned for a post showing those details soon!!)
Love stripes. Love converse. Love those cozy jeans! Bring it spring, I’m ready!!

I’m missing the sunshine something fierce these days!
I’m ready for tank tops, bronzed cheeks & iced coffee! (Even though I’m that crazy chick that still drinks iced coffee all winter long, def tastes better with the warm sun shining!)

Strolling through this week on a health high! Crazy how quickly you forget how good it feels to be healthy when you’re on your face with the flu and a head cold. I can eat and breathe again! Feeling good my friends!
Topic shift…
It’s the craziest thing to suddenly be tasting some independence since I’ve only had one kiddie at home with me. It feels pretty fulfilling to remember what I have to offer people other than my kiddos. I’m veerrrry excited to see what my main man (holla at yoooou Jesus) is doing with my future as a mama and as a stylist! He’s up to good things and I’m an honored gal to be used by Him in as many ways as He wishes! .

Layers of cozy?! Deal! A simple stretch dress and a hoodie is like wearing socks with tennis shoes, a must for comfort! But who knew adding a little sparkly beaded necklace and a simple suede jacket could actually dress up such a loungey, laid back outfit!? I did, now you do! So, you’re welcome. .

I mean it, I’m really having a hard time getting over these balloon sleeves! So good.
But also, church this morning… no joke, kids. I’m stoked to attend a church where I leave feeling challenged spiritually, excited about my future, supported and loved, filled up with vision and expectant for great things! Taking this step with styling has been vulnerable and intimidating at moments. It’s also been thrilling and full of excitement! But I’m human. I doubt my ability, feel insecure, fight with comparison and THEN I’m reminded by a God who loves me that I’m worthy of success, I’m deserving of a voice, I have Him in my corner directing my steps and asking me to trust His leading, and that I’m not other people – I’m me and he has a plan for ME! He leaves me feeling capable, valuable, favored & full of faith – I’m surrendering that battle! It’s His! This little adventure I’m on is His to breath life into and who am I to doubt His plan for my life or limit it’s greatness with fear?! I’m humbled that He believes in me and has even greater vision for my life than I realize! I’m excited to see it all unfold and I choose to hold my life with open hands held high for Him to use! 📷 @helloimemmaquinn .

Cozy up buttercups cuz it’s crappy outside! Coffee, yes. Blankets, yes. Killer gallery wall, always. Thanks to @amberannie for sharing her cozy home with us! Jeans and black ruffles, praise God. Details on this ruffle top coming soon! This one was a random find on a rack just outside of Sephora at JCPenny… Yeah, that’s what I thought too! I’ll wear anything from anywhere if it gives me heart eyes and happy feels! 📷: @helloimemmaquinn

If you’re not sure what to wear and you gotta get your buns out the door, you should have an all black outfit always ready to grab! (And of coarse your lipstick, all black + a bold lip is hawt) It’s sleek & easy to add to with a jacket, cardigan, necklace, scarf, hat… but always safe all on it’s own. This bubble sleeve sweater is my favorite go to right now! It’s super versatile & I get more compliments on this sweater than most of the others I own! It’s fun and has slight structure but it’s crazy functional and comfortable! It comes in 4 colors at @anthropologie 😍 I want ’em all!! If you take the plunge and give her a try, tag me in a photo showing me how you styled it! Show me whatcha got, guuurrrl. Any questions or business inquiries shoot me an email or DM me!

As always, 📷 by the lovely @helloimemmaquinn

Mondays, hooonnnnnestly… why do you have to be such a stinker sometimes?! Real life – one kid was up throwing up all night, another was up with jaw pain and my husband hurt his neck so I was left to run the show solo. (I mean I felt like superwoman so I’m not complaining!) Talk about a rough night!! But then again, we’re alive… Life is full and happy and this season of funk is a short one! So today, I’m cool with you Monday – let’s turn my frown upside down! My grocery shopping is done, my coffee is hot and the way those fishnets look with that feminine skirt has me feeling good… so here’s to you, Monday! Another week to make beautiful things, snuggle my kids, kiss my (extremely good looking) husband, dream about my future and soak up my present! Happy Monday! 📷 @helloimemmaquinn
