Green Scarf Outfit and Inspirational Quote

This past Friday, I wore this grey V-neck t-shirt over a white camisole, cuffed, straight leg jeans, Converse tennis shoes, and a bright green circle scarf. The camera didn't really pick up just how BRIGHT my scarf is. Sorry! I felt really artistic in this ensemble because of the scarf, rolled cuffs, and my mixing of bracelets. What do you think of my outfit?

This is my scarf.:)


And just some inspiration for you, if you are kinda scared about your needs being met. If you are a Christian, this applies to you. If you are not a Christian, then God is still watching over you, and loves you very much. He is the one who supplies you with all of your needs. If you would like to know more about Christianity or God, leave a comment or email me. My email is on my profile page. Have a blessed day!

Bridesmaid Dresses

I'm so excited! My mom just ordered my bridesmaid dress for my sister's wedding! I'm the fashion coordinator for my sister's wedding, and this started out as a huge responsibility. My sister wanted all of us bridesmaids to wear coordinating dresses, but for them to all be different! The big eclectic bridsmaids' dresses trend was what my sister is going for. So I set out to find dresses for all of my sister's bridesmaids. After awhile, my sister just told all of her bridesmaids to just find a dress in a light pink or peach color. Lace was also desirable. My sister wanted a vintage look at first, but now we're going a bit more fancy.

Soooooooo.... Now I'm just going to (hopefully) coordinate the accessories! I'm excited for that.:) But I won't be surprised if I don't get to do that either. But one thing I know for sure, is that I will get to accessorize myself! This dress that I just ordered is so cute- it's a light pink color with an ivory or cream band around the waist. It's also got some pleating details on it. The following picture isn't the best picture of it (my mom took the picture from her iPad with her phone.), but I will show it to you when it arrives.:)

I can't tell you the hardships I went through to find this dress! I had originally decided to purchase this dress from Modcloth, but they ran out of my size the day that I decided to order it! I couldn't believe it!!! I was pretty upset... But then I got up and kept searching! I looked at TONS of dresses. Then I found this dress. It's everything I wanted- it's long enough (meaning, hits above my knee. All of my dresses need to be that length, because that is what is modest- and what is modest is pleasing to the Lord.:), this dress is the color that my sister wanted, and I can re-wear it again and again after the wedding! And here is the SUPER cool thing- when we ordered it, Modcloth only had one of these dresses left... AND IT WAS IN MY SIZE!!! I got the very last one available, and as soon as my mom finished ordering it, the website said that it wasn''t available anymore, and wouldn't ever be restocked. So, I got the very last one EVER available! I feel so special.:) Can't wait for it to arrive, and to show you how it looks!

Messy Bun

Yesterday, I put my hair into a bun to emphasize a special detail in my shirt- angel wings! This bun is super easy to make. All you do it gather your hair into a ponytail, just don't secure it with a ponytail holder. Just hold it with your hand. Next, twist the tail of your ponytail and spin it into a bun wherever you held your ponytail in place. Then secure with bobby pins. My hair is layered, so my bun was a bit messier, so if your hair is layered, it will look a lot like how my hair looks. But if your hair is all one length, it will probably look really neat.:)

I made the bun while my hair was wet, so when I took it out, my hair was wavy. It looked really cool and kinda boho.:) I'm thinking about sleeping with my hair in a bun or, at least, on top of my head, to wake up in the morning with these messy waves.

Some of the curls in my hair looked like ringlets!

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

Spring Scents

This spring, one of the big fragrance trends is to NOT change your scent from something darker and heavier for winter to something lighter and sweeter for spring. In other words, keep wearing the heavier scent through spring.

Another new trend is to wear a perfume that smells like what a guy would wear- dark and woodsy. I don't know about you, but I enjoy smelling like a girl! So I'm not planning on wearing heavier scents through spring, or wearing a guy's cologne. I'm going to enjoy smelling pretty.:)

These are my picks for this spring. Paris Amour by Bath and Body works. They have a large collection for this product line, and it smells super pretty. Like a flower! They also have variations on Paris Amour, like my lotion set. Next time you are at Bath and Body Works, give this line of fragrances a try!
