Project: {Style} IV

Project: {Style} – Because, as we grow & change, our style is always evolving.  I love fashion & beauty.  I think it is FUN.  I’m figuring out what I’m comfortable in, & I’m figuring out what makes me happy.  {*NOTE: I know that beauty & fashion, are not THE source of happiness.  Jesus is my sole source of Joy.  But, He made us to appreciate beauty.  To see Him in the beauty. This is just a fun project in finding an outward expression of the joy I feel on the inside.}

I’ve still been feeling like I’m in a R.U.T.  But, I did have a {little} more inspiration this week…

(Really, I’m blaming the {Summer Funk}, I had so many goals for the summer, & it’s slipping away speeding by! Okay, I apologize…moving on from my wine whine fest.)

Have you tried Peplum tops?  I have a really hard time with them because of my body type.  So, I tried a drop waist dress to see if it would give a similar effect…

This necklace is made {with love} in Vietnam out of bone & ethically harvested water buffalo horn.  It is one of my favorites because it can be worn with just about everything.  I like to pair it with a fun {arm party} or chunky earrings.


I have had this dress for.YEARS.  I mean, YEARS.  I know I got it at Target, pre-children.  That is how well {loved} it is.  It *might* be time for me to retire it…but it’s been so stinkin’ faithful.  It’s a dress that I can throw on when I’m just not “feelin’ it”, & still feel somewhat put together.  Do you have a faithful piece of the clothing like that?

I finally purchased a Chambray shirt a few weeks ago…& I’m loving it.  Have you worn it as a cardi?  It’s getting {hot} here in Nebraska, so layering is {key}.  This pic is from Sunday.  *Note: My dear, sweet Huz was snapping these pics for me…& this was right after he got done laughing at me as I was trying to firmly encourage my parents’ sweet crazy dog to stop jumping on me, & vacate the premises {immediately}. Bless. Bless.his.heart.

The Shine Necklace is made {with love} in Ecuador from acai, tagua, & pambil seed!  It’s an {amazing} statement piece.

AND – The Shine Necklace & the Rainforest Fringe Earrings (that I am also wearing) are 30% OFF through Sunday!
