I’ve turned into a crazy plant lady over the last year, on our aimless date a few days ago took us to Bambi plant store in Carlsbad and I got a string of pearls plant that I can’t stop staring at as if it were a new baby all swaddled up & ready to be snuggled! Anyways, these crazy pants are one of my new favs! I am a tee-shirt gal 90% of the time so having a little extra sumthin on bottom is where I try and add in more flava in wardrobe. Let’s be real I could have worn a solid white or black tee and these pants would have made it look dressed up, so easy! If you’re a tee shirt lover like me think of ways to add color, print or added textures on bottom. Examples: leather skirt, flowy pants like mine, paper bag pants, silk pants or skirt.
Don’t be afraid to play in your own wardrobe, mix things together that feel outside of your comfort zone and see what sparks some excitement! .

Ya want real life? There she is! A photo of me working the week before Christmas, blurry from tiny greasy hands on my phone. My 4 year old spontaneously took this picture 🙂 So many jobs are over glamorized and feel untouchable or elite. My job can sometimes fall into that category – like it’s not attainable to have a personal stylist. Do you get your nails done so you feel pampered? Because they last a lot longer and look beautiful? Probably! Even though you could buy cheap polish & paint them yourself just to have them chip that night… there are reasons services like mine exists, to offer quality and expertise where you need it. You don’t have to have it but it could change your life – as I hear from 100% of my clients! WHY I do this job is because every woman deals with insecurity & busyness, clothes should not add to the frustration or chaos. They should empower you & give you confidence! Yes I love fashion! I love trends & style! But I love to help lift burdens that get too heavy for women to carry, style is something we can control when other areas of our lives feel disheveled. I do what I do not because it’s glamorous (although I love me some designer shopping & sparkly everything!), I do it because for so many women it’s a problem that I have the solution to & I’m passionate about it. ❤️

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!

I’ve been called #cruelladevil once or twice while wearing these shoes and I didn’t mind it one bit! Plus, they are one of my top thrift store finds to date!

Keepin’ on with that go-get-em-girl spirit and loving how I get to be used by a God who sees the full picture and trusts me enough to show me pieces of it along it the way. Trusting Him with every unseen next step has become more exciting than scary because of the things I’ve seen him do in lives around me and in my own. He is a creative God and that captives me!

I’m thankful tomorrow is Monday. I’m ready for a new week, another fresh start & another chance to make an ordinary week a memorable one. Too many weeks go by too quickly where I forget what I even did! I’m all about relaxing but I feel it all the way to my core that this season of my life isn’t simply for relaxing. It’s for investing, being intentional, operating outside of my comfort zone, pouring my heart into my dreams, my kids, my marriage, my church. This season of my life feels heavily strategic to my future, my career, my family, my spirit & my heart. I was challenged recently to focus on my emotional and spiritual needs more than I tend to focus on other people’s. Not in a ‘think about yourself and forget about those a-holes!’ Kind of way… more like, take the hint when your emotional investments aren’t healthy for you. Make some changes so that you’re positioned for success & not to get hit square in the heart by a fiery dart of emotional & spiritual turmoil. Maybe that seems obvious, but for me sometimes it takes more effort to remember to make sure that I’m in a healthy spot emotionally, spiritually & physically before I have anything healthy to offer anyone else & so that I am the best possible version of myself for my family, my business and for MYSELF. I’m feeling some deep things in my spirit this week & I’m excited to move forward with fresh perspective & a renewed mind! #hereiamsendme 📷 @kelseyhettinga

Strollin… cuz guys this boyfriend jacket that I swooped from my hubs closet is bomb.com and makes me a happy gal!
I bought it for him, it’s vintage and I found it at a sweet spot in CA on the coast! Definitely has some sentimental attachment and you better believe that I’m all about hanging onto the sentiment it holds of the SD sunshine! Warm sunshine + oversized Levi jacket + iced coffee sounds like the life for me! 📷 by @helloimemmaquinn (always, cuz she’s also the bomb.com!) .
