Because fishnets and a little bubble sleeve make the world a better place! Well, my world anyways! Maybe plaid or stilettos make your world a better place! That’s the beauty of this style thing, we all have things that make us feel beautiful and express our individuality! There are ways to incorporate styles/trends outside of your comfort zone into your wardrobe in a really comfortable way. I love helping women discover their style & it’s just so much easier done when you understand your body type, fabrics & colors that works best for you. Those are things that I love to help my clients understand! I not only work one on one, I’ve had the honor to be able to speak to rooms of women that all struggle with the same things… positive body image, frustration over getting dressed or shopping, understanding how to best dress their body type and I would love to do so much more of that! If you have a need/want for a styling workshop or body type workshop please contact me! I would love to help!

Yesterday was a much needed day of adventure and all things lovely! The @clothandcabin Spring lineup is SO good, you guys! I can’t wait for it to go live so you can buy all the pretty things for yourselves! And let’s just throw down a solid shout out to @eandlsalongr because Erin & @samklugartistry are some incredible humans! They were so down to earth, which is way the heck up there on my list of hopes when meeting new people. I felt beautiful, valued and really thankful to have met 2 more female powerhouses in the Grand Rapids community. The photo shoot with Cloth&Cabin was hilarious, inspiring, laid back and overflowing with mimosas – seriously my glass was never left half empty. Can’t wait to see the magic from so many killer creatives working together & so grateful I got to be a part of it!
Photo props to Meredith from @clothandcabin 💥

The amount of snow that has fallen in the last 12 hours in GR is ummm, no bueno. Beautiful? Absolutely! Cozy? I mean it’s like magic when you’re inside looking out! But I think half of this would have been just as lovely, sky… Thanks a lot. I think it’s officially time to say it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with all of this sparkling, white ‘tow’ – as my 3 year old would say. Maybe we should start wearing our ‘glubs’, yeah probably a good idea.

We had our first Christmas party this week and it was so much fun! (Yes, it was before December 1st & I totally appreciated it!) It launched me into Christmas mode & got me thinking about all of the magical moments that will unfold over the next few weeks – Christmas packages arriving, coffee visits next to a softly lit Christmas tree, baking sugar cookies & balsam scented candles, kids asking (relentlessly) when Santa will make his appearance & hopefully some sparkling snow! Happy December!! 📷 @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.

This has been a funky week. I’ve had a sore throat for the last 5 days, I still feel like I’m settling back in to our normal after being on vacation & I’ve just felt a little off. I’m certain you guys can relate with weeks like this, too.
It’s one of those weeks I feel like I just need a really good (ugly) cry, all of the cozy things in the world and a day to process some deep feelings that I’m having about stuff going on in my world. I appreciate that God allows us to feel things, process them, go through the motions and then He helps us pick up the pieces and begin to rebuild. Wether it’s just an emotional week or it’s a major life battle; they’re the same to Him. He cares about the smaller, hard moments & days just as much as He cares about the hard years & lifelong battles that some people face.

Lamentations 3:22 “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.” _______________
Airport apparel. Cozy + easy is the only way! Also, all the chenille sweaters floating around right now are the comfiest!! This one is from @zara & I’m rarely not wearing it… even when I’m sleeping I’m wearing it, I’m not kidding. Ps. Socks borrowed from my 6 year old daughter, thanks Delaney!

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!
