New Year!

Happy New Years Eve everyone! Are you excited for the new year to start? I am.:) I love the thought of reinventing myself with the coming of a new year. You know- new clothes, new attitude, new you! But, I always stay the same. Which I guess is good, since if I were always changing myself, who could keep up?

So I suppose that this year, I won't resolve to become different, but to be braver. I think that I am pretty brave, but I am constantly thinking of new things I want to try, and then I never try them! So this year, I want to challenge myself to try new things. I know that I can call on The Lord to help me with these issues. What about you? Are you going to challenge yourself to try new things? A new trend, hairstyle, food, sport, hobby, or even a new nail polish color! Give it a try.:)

If you want to try a new trend or clothing article, let me know and I'll help you with it! Just email me at with your question and I'll answer it the best I can. Happy New Year!

Ombre Nail Art

Yesterday, I did my nails with Emma and my cousin April. But Emma's nails didn't quite turn out, so I helped her with hers today. I used this ombre nail kit that I received as a Christmas gift on my nails, and I used the aqua color from the kit on Emma's nails, along with a light pink color. Here are the pics!

The nail polishes I used are available here. This kit comes in pink, purple, and the blue I used.

Denim and White

This outfit is so sweet! Yet, it has some edge to it because of the studs on the shoes. You can easily make this outfit into a fall/winter look just by adding some tights and boots. A patterned or cut out style of tights would look great.

Red, Plaid, and Gold

This is the outfit I wore yesterday. I was originally wearing a dark denim military style vest over my shirt, but one of the silver buttons on the vest fell off! So, I opted for a long black vest instead. What do you think?:)

What I Wore Yesterday

Hey! Happy Friday to you! Are you excited? Tomorrow no school! Yay!!! Me and my family are going to decorate our house for Christmas! We'll wake up and have Salted Caramel chai tea, put on Christmas music, and start taking out our multiple Christmas boxes that will come out of our garage. So stay tuned for tomorrow!

Cherry Blossom Nail Art

I found this really cute cherry blossom nail art idea on, so I thought that I would share it with you! Start with painting your nails in a solid mint green color. Once your nails are dry, take a brown nail art pen and draw wavy lines on your nails to look like tree branches. Then take a darker/medium pink colored polish and use a dotting tool (or a toothpick) to add medium sized dots to the branches. Once the darker/medium pink dots are dry, take a lighter pink polish and dab smaller dots (using the tool), on top of and overlapping the darker dots. Wait until it's dry, and then apply a top coat to protect your nails.

Here are some variations on this style-
1.) Before you apply the top coat, add tiny dots with the nail art pen to the middle of the "blossoms" to add some definition.
2.) Try using the lighter pink color first, then using the darker color.

I hope you like this idea! If you did this nail art, take a picture and send it to me! I would love to see how it turned out for you.:)


Lace Love!

Hey! Happy Thursday to you all! I hope, so far, you've had a great week. My last post said that I was going to post about lace and how it can take you to a whole new world of fashion! You can look chic, girly, edgy and almost anything else!so when you're at home, thinking of WHAT AM I GONNA WEAR! Think of adding some lace to your style, it adds a perfect touch to whatever you're wearing.

Good Bye Harvest Thyme!!!

Today is the day that we have taken down all of our harvest themed decorations in preparation for the Christmas season. It's a tight fit inside those boxes though! Every year, my mom buys more decorations for each season, and this year it looks like we'll need to start a third box of fall decorations.:)

I have a typical go-to look for when I'm working on the house- a T-shirt and some jeans or jean shorts. Normally I don't put my hair up, but today I did.;) Are you getting ready for Christmas yet?

Denim Outerwear

I love to use my button down shirts as a cardigan. All you do is unbutton your shirt and throw it on whatever you have on! Try it out and see if you like the look. Let me know what you think!

How to Wear Summer Dresses and Skirts in the Winter


How to Wear Summer Dresses and Skirts in the Winter
Forever New pleated dress
$135 -

Mason by Michelle Mason stripe sweater
$205 -

Mango jacket

The Row white legging
$450 -

Rag bone

Skater skirt

Esquivel metallic heels
$295 -

To get more mileage out my closet, I don't store away my summer clothing when cold weather arrives. Instead, I add layers to keep myself warm. I've already shown you how you can keep using your shorts and tank tops in the winter, but now I'm going to show you how I use my summer dresses and skirts in the winter. I add leggings and an outerwear item to stay warm- and stay stylish! Then, instead of sandals, I wear boots. Or maybe you could try sneakers, like in the casual look! I also love adding a top over a dress to have it masquerade as a skirt. Tops like sweaters are especially nice in the winter. Have you ever tried putting a top over a dress before?

Thanksgiving is Tomorrow!!!

Hey everyone! I can't believe that tomorrow is Thanksgiving! This year, certain members of my family and I have been making little strips of paper with the things we are grateful for on them, and then taping them to a cabinet in our house. Everybody has their own assigned color, so you can see who is thankful for what. Anyways, tomorrow is going to be such fun! We're going to my aunt's house to celebrate. Do you know what you're going to wear for your Thanksgiving celebration? I do! Or at least, I have the general idea.;) I'll show you soon!

Sparkles and Studs

Sparkles and studs are two of the world's favorite trends of today. I have a love for sparkle and so does Kendra, something about the glitter, shine, glimmer, shimmer, sparkle, and twinkle on any item, makes me happy. If you look in my closet you'll find multiple sparkly clothes including my "glitter is my favorite color" T, my bedazzled skinny jeans, my tutu, and so much more. Sparkles are so cute cause they go with almost everything. They also will be so adorable for the upcoming holidays!

Studs are so cool cause they give you that biker look of "don't mess with me." But even though they have a tough appearance, they give you a nice edge to whatever you're wearing. Add a cool vibe to boots with these sharp pyramids, and maybe your next buy will be a leather jacket with studs sewn into the pocket. These 3D triangles are super fun to play around with, so think of them and make one of your buys unique and unexpected with these studs! Hang out 'cause my next post will be about lace! Have a great Thanksgiving!

A Fashionable Christmas and Thanksgiving Time!

Hey guys! This is Emma, even though the profile I'm on is Kendra's. I am so excited for Christmas! All the Christmas decor, trees growing, and the weather. I love this weather, usually we have lots of weather above 80. Ugh! But now we have many days that are under 70 degrees. Yay! Thanksgiving is only a few days away. I love the mashed potatoes, the ham, the gravy, and stuffing other than all the desserts. This year we are going to go over to my aunt's house to celebrate Thanksgiving. She makes the best gooey butter cake ever! Other than my b-day I love Christmas. Our tradition is to eat Cinnabon cinnamon rolls and orange juice on Christmas day. What is your family tradition? This is kind of random, but I love pattern play. I've made an outfit today with pattern play. My brother Parker is included in some of these photos.

And this is what we had for dinner- because at the fundraiser they just served hors d'oeuvres. We went to Famous Dave's. It was sooooo good!

This is what is called a "Trash Can Lid" or something at Famous Dave's

The meal that my mom and I split- BBQ pork and chicken!
And this is what I wore through the entire day!

I hope you enjoyed hearing about this super fun day of mine! I hope you have an equally fantastic day.:)
