25 Days Till Christmas!

 I hope you're all having a good start to the best month of the year! Maybe you'll celebrate by watching a Christmas classic, like Rudolph, or It's a Wonderful Life. Maybe you'll put up your Christmas tree, or sing some carols. Or maybe if you're like me you'll update your fashion blog with an equally festive setting for the 1st day of December.
There's just something about this cami I love! Probably the fact that it's tastefully combined my two favorite fabrics; plaid and lace!
Instead of pairing it with the predictable jeans I pulled it over a simple black dress and leggings!
Not only is this outfit cute, it's also the perfect reindeer riding outfit!
                                               I love Christmas.

Forever posers.

Why hello there! I hope everyone's having a blessed Sunday! I had my Youth on Mission meeting today which went fabulously! We even got to have cake even though the birthday boy wasn't there(FYI, I made an awesome stand-in for him, voice and everything!). Anywho! We had a little extra time while we were waiting for some of the youths' rides so the rest of the youth that were there got to be in my new blog post!
As you can see we are all very experienced models! Not to mention we all have extraordinary taste;)
And of course we're always there to pick each other up!
Oh and a little back story on this dress! I had seen this dress a while ago in Macy's for $60, then I was in there the other day and what do you know, they had it for $7! Moral of the story: Wait! Because most likely they'll put it on sale and then you can tell everyone about the great sale you found!
I'm not really sure what this says about our youth group.....

Youth group's #1 modeling tip:Have a very together picture and then have one of your friends just walk around aimlessly.
We're very close:)
Thank you for reading! Sending vibes of love and peace your way:)

Back in pearls...

  Why hello! Sorry I haven't been posting regularly, I had some things going on. But now I'm back!

As you can see I used my leotard again, which just goes to show how many different ways it can be used!
Not only is my skirt plaid but my heels are as well. Don't shy away from using two different plaids together.
A side braid is a quick and easy way to make it look like you actually did something with your hair. And a strand of pearls always makes you appear polished. Oh don't worry, my skirt is trimmed with lace! You can't forget about lace:)

This made me feel girly!

   I really like brightly colored mini jumpers, they just look very cutesy and almost doll like.
When you wear a bright jumper like this it's key to make the rest of your outfit neutral.
A classic bun is a nice way to highlight your neckline. And the black top is actually a leotard, which is great because you don't have to worry about it getting out of place or feeling bulky!
I feel like I'm going through fashion time travel! Yesterday I had a 70s thing going on and today this is more 60s, maybe my next post will be inspired by the 50s;)

It's beginning to look a lot like Halloween!

  Thankfully the sun came out today! Just in time for my niece and me to decorate cupcakes and do all sorts of fun Halloween things!(Her birthday is tomorrow, she'll be 5!). In fact we decorated the front porch so I thought it would be the perfect place for my blog pictures today!
You can't really see in these pictures all the decorating we did but you get the idea!
I absolutely love unique knits! I'm not sure if you can tell but this crocheted hot pink top is actually a summer top but I think it fits well, and it adds that pop of color!
I love this sweater! I would wear it everywhere if I could! And would you believe it I got it for $3 at Rainbow! While Rainbow doesn't have the best service they do have great sales!
This whole look reminds me of the 70s, especially my faded, slightly flared jeans:)
                                                  Just felt spooky:)Boooooooooooooooo!!!!

Don't let the rain get you can always wear your cute rain boots!

Seeing as it's been raining today I decided to wear my rain boots. Seems appropriate doesn't it?

Who says you can't wear floral in the fall? It instantly lifts not only your look but your spirits too!
Here you'll see that it's not actually a poncho over my dress but a cleverly tied scarf! 
See my earrings? They're flowers too:)
Rain-gear never looked so cheery:)
                                                                   I love this song:)

I also dream in plaid...

Hello again!!! Now I know I named this Robyn dreams in lace, but as you can see from my first post and this one as well. I also have a love affair with plaid. Who doesn't these days? It's definitely one of my favorite patterns for fall.

Now here's a great way to wear a plaid skirt without looking like a school-girl. The graphic tee has just the right tones to really make this look come together and give it that casual girly feel.
Not only do black tights go with everything, they also elongate and slim your legs. And the 30s style hat is the perfect touch to make you look polished. Heels don't hurt either;)

Oh I almost forgot! The back of my sweater has lace:)
  I  heard this song in the grocery store today, it's always been one of my favorites, he wrote it when he was 16:)

Hello, it's me....

  Well if you're reading you know this is my first blog!!! At least on this one that is. I already have another blog, which again if you're reading this you've probably read my other blog, By Ivy Nor. While that blog is all about my writing at the moment I thought I would explore something a little different with this one, fashion. I hesitate to say fashion, mainly because I don't see myself as a fashion blogger, I guess the word intimates me. But truthfully fashion is a part of our everyday lives, and it's pretty extraordinary how a simple piece of clothing can be used by so many different kinds of people. Imagine where we would be without the invention of underwear. Scary thought, huh? I don't intend to invent something as life-changing as underwear though, I just want to share with people my inspirations and opinions just like I do with my writing. So let me get started!
Here I paired a strapless plaid summer dress with a white v-neck sweater and a brown belt with delicate cut-outs and my brown slouchy boots(which I LOVE! They're so comfortable, I wear them with everything. I got them at Target last year).
Here's the full-length shot. Sorry you can't see the boots completely. This outfit really makes me think of fall and sipping apple cider. Yum!

Oh goodie! You can see them in this one!
            I'll leave you with this song by Dan Fogelberg, one of my favorite artists, it's poignantly beautiful.
