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.

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!

This is my BABY (although not such a baby anymore… waaahhh!) and he’s going to be 3 in less than a week!! Time is a crazy thing, it’s so precious and a total disappearing act. I think about the things we’ve done in the last 9 years with our kids and the worth each moment held & I feel filled up & overflowing with gratitude!
We are constantly figuring out where to make adjustments to become more patient, gracious & consistent with our kids but I’ll tell you confidently that we love them well!
This baby of mine is an incredible kid – he’s confident, extremely silly, imaginative, passionate and (obviously) adorable. So excited to celebrate his life next week!

Photo: @ashleywierenga Thanks for capturing this sweet moment.

Start with denim, add a splash of floral, give it some kick by adding in a hint of Converse and top it off with more denim! It’s one of my weekly recipes, always good!

Oh, how I love femme floral and vintage denim! Denim on denim on denimmmmmm! {Not to mention this floral blouse is also vintage, such a score!} Wait, why do we say “not to mention” when mentioning something specific!? Seems a little backwards to me. Oh well, welcome to the English language! Back to this watercolor floral… ugh. Yes. .

You may think an oversized tee + hat + sunnies + scarf might sound like a disguise. Well, you’re right… Just trying to get away with being un-showered & wearing an oversized tee, all day every day and not look like a frump! (Frump… did I make that up?!) All those add-ons make it acceptable, right?! Come on guys, back me up on this! .
