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! .

Sweat pants, check. Ankle boots, always. (Pretend you see fishnets on those bare ankles, I couldn’t find mine. 🙄) Laying on the cold ground to get a picture of my legs all twisty and perched for a photo… well, sure! What the heck!

I’ve been so out of my groove, you guys! I mean in all honesty – I struggle like mad with the whole IG thing. Mostly because it can be such a time suck! I love that it’s such a great tool for building community & supporting people/things I believe in but I hate that it also really messes with people who come searching for validation on a platform that lacks so much real ness. Whatevs though, ya know!? I know… deep. 😂 Shout out to @clothandcabin for this gray shirt I’m totally obsessed with!

Thinking about the sunshine & missing it’s cozy, warm touch. Probably because I’m sitting in my car while my babe naps in his car seat and I’m surrounded by white sky poop aka snow – you can thank my kids for that sweet little description.
It’s always kind of nice when I’m forced into this position of patience and quiet while my sweet one is resting. I mean give me alone time & some soft music and it’s a recipe for self reflection, the older I get the more I realize how quick I am to go deep – I wonder why that is?! I guess I’m more willing to become aware of my shortcomings and let the Lord help me become someone better, self reflection isn’t always fun – the list of things to work on is endless, but it’s in this safe space where I can also give the Lord a chance to remind me of the areas I should be proud. Today I was reminded that growth is a lifelong process, it’s not making a decision today to be someone who’s got it all together and by tomorrow having it all figured out. It’s ok to let the process happen, to grow little by little and even let myself fail along the way – without letting it defeat me. One foot in front of the other, get back up, try again, change the strategy, let patience have its perfect work. I’m a work in progress & I am a-ok with that! 📷 @kelseyhettinga .

You may think an oversized tee + hat + sunnies + scarf might sound like a disguise.

All those add-ons make it acceptable, right?! Come on guys, back me up on this! .

Blue skies and linen up ahead! Need I say more?! OK, I will. I’ve never really been a big linen person but this season it’s striking a new chord with me! It’s light, airy, has loads of texture and let’s be real, when ya hear ‘linen’ your brain goes straight to beach vibes Ya’ll! So, gimme all the linen and take me to the beach. Come on summer!!
