You don’t have to utilize a specific item for the way it’s intended, styling it in a way that makes you FEEL amazing will automatically make you look amazing! Trousers don’t only mean you have to wear a collared shirt and pump, try dressing them up strappy heels & going casual on top or dress them down with loafers or sneakers when going dressier on top. .

Obsessed with these suit sets! Wear them sporty with a hoodie underneath & some sneaks or dressy with a blouse & strappy heel! Or go grunge and do a graphic tee and doc martens, buying basics gives you endless options for styling! .

For all my ladies that love a wardrobe full of T-shirt’s & denim, accessories are your best bud! Layered necklaces, rings, bracelets (or all of the above!!) pair beautifully with the simple look of a tee & jeans. Dainty, chunky, charmed, mixed metals paired with solids, prints or graphic tees – it all works! I love accessories, they’re the simplest way to dress up your comfiest outfits & express your personal style even further! .

When you think of your happiest, most confident clothes – what triggers that inward exhilaration for you? Color? Texture? Bold print? Clean lines? Simplicity? There are so many, many things that contribute to our personal style but the most important of them all is how you feel in what you’re wearing! If you only wore what made you FEEL AMAZING then your style would take shape all on its own because confidence would emerge! When we feel frustrated and insecure in our clothes the total opposite happens, we feel unsure & insecure which translates too easily to awkwardness and constant self doubt. We carry ourselves differently and the cycle of self doubt gets fed. If you could wear one thing for the rest of your life (that’s not strictly lounge wear, that’s an obvi one!) what would it be? Does a color come to mind? Fabric? Print? Certain silhouette? Dive further into what it is about that thing that makes you FEEL secure & don’t let people or social pressures make you change your mind. Lean into that thing and start exploring it more! For me, I’d choose tshirts – I stopped telling myself they’re too boring and I started challenging myself to wear them more and style them differently simply because I felt good in them, now it’s a uniform! I feel confident, sexy, secure & totally myself when I wear one that I love! Take off your insecurity outfit and put on your confidence uniform! .

THIS, you guys! Truth! Only a liar can make you feel isolated in a world full of people fighting the same battles as you. Depression, anxiety, divorce, miscarriage, grief, insecurity, self doubt, fear… we’ve ALL experienced something that’s left us broken. Every. Single. One of us. (Yeah, it’s gettin’ real up in here.) The catch is that most of the time we to choose shame and isolation from our brokenness over believing that it doesn’t define us or determine our future. A perfect Insta photo is lovely but it’s too easy to hide behind & we can’t maintain a life that appears beautiful when everything behind the scene is falling apart. It took me a long time to stop feeling shame for miscarrying 3 of my 6 babies. Who told me that was MY fault?! Who says you deserved to be abused? Who said you aren’t good enough to chase after that dream? Those are lies that too commonly take the place of our truths – that we are beautiful, we are desirable, we are strong, we’re fighters, we’re creative & fierce and capable! These truths & lies bleed into every area of our lives including how we dress & carry ourselves. Welcome to my WHY! I don’t believe that any woman should wear clothes that lie to her every single day & tell her she’s not worth looking good and feeling good. Clothes that make her feel unattractive & uninspired. Not when it’s something we can work on gaining control of. Clothes trigger our insecurities or they make us feel confident! Go through your clothes, don’t hold onto the things that keep you feeling uninspired. Save a little money & replace that item with something that makes you feel killer incredible! Even if it’s just one piece at a time, eventually your wardrobe can be a safer place for you. I want that for you with all of my heart! .

I’m gunna just say it, yeah, I am – just going to lay it out… I am not a very good Instagrammer, in fact I’ve really despised this platform off and on…
I’m a business owner, a great mom, a new (and addicted) reader of novels (please tell me you’ve read The Woman in The Window!), professional iced coffee drinker, newbie to hiking and willing to give those things my all – but Instagram… Wow, I have given it the bare min of my energy. But that’s going to change, not just for my own sake! Because I have things in my heart and in my profession that I want to share with you and I’m done letting uncertainty of this platform hinder me. I’m excited about sharing styling stuff with you! Excited to help you learn what creates someone’s personal style and the work that goes into it! I’m also really excited to put my heart into it, because for me those two things go hand in hand… my work and my heart. Cheers to my first work meeting today since our move to SD! Cheers to fresh starts and personal growth, cheers to showing up for other people and offering what we have to the world to make a healthy difference! And CHEERS to chasing after dreams and kicking fear in the buttcheek.

One of the most important relationships we have is with ourselves. If we don’t strive to become the healthiest version of who we are then we will live this life believing we will never measure up. And there’s so much more for us than that!
Give yourself the permission to believe that what’s in your heart is important despite its relevancy. That you don’t need to ‘look the part’ because that’s what others expect of you. What’s in your heart is valuable & worthy wether it’s about Jesus, anxiety, work, happiness, politics, family, your kids or food, it all matters because every one of those things play a vital role in making up the whole person of YOU.
It’s good to remind yourself that you don’t have to be extraordinary to be loved. You just have to be you & understand that you are enough.

I feel like every post is the first post because I post so infrequently on IG. Are you starting to think the word ‘post’ sounds funny because of overuse? Anyone? Just me? K.
So, let me get down and dirty real quick, there are things you should about me before we take this to second base… I really don’t have a passion for fashion, I love style. I don’t always care about what’s happening on the runways because I care more about what’s happening in your closet and WHY it’s happening. More importantly, how I can help! I love the psychology of style, why we are drawn to certain colors and styles and what triggers our shopping patterns. Enough about that; I love a good belly laugh, the uglier the better! I’ve started probably 4 books over the last year and never, like ever, finish them – is that because I’m not an adult yet? I freaking love to dance, the truth is if you saw how I got down you might feel confusion & ask yourself, is this totally awesome or is she insane? It’s over the top and the best medicine! I’m an enneagram 4 which makes me want to swim upstream while also being your most loyal friend & a little moody mama at times. Family is top of my list, I’d walk away from life’s greatest opportunities to be a better mom & wife. The beauty of that is that I married a man who would encourage just the opposite. I’m a fresh plant lover and have actual anxiety when I see leaves start to brown. I love great skin care but often forget to wash my face before bed, I know, I know. I’m a quality time person and when I’m alone too much I sink into a bit of a self worth funk, it’s one of my daily battles. When I was in 8th grade our childhood home burned down, (it was even more traumatic than it sounds – I’ll share the story soon) the first thing I got out was my friends backpack and the last thing? My bird. I always hated that bird – chill out, it lived! And for way too long after that fire. 😜 Here’s what I’m working on: caring less about what others think & really embracing who I am, all quirks included! Walking outside of my comfort zone to pursue personal grow, finishing those freaking books I’ve started & drinking more water! Your turn!
