Creating a gift guide for “her” is the most fun, but also the most difficult. Who exactly is this lady? A new mom? A teacher? An artist? A globe trotter? The goal with these items is to be delightful and special to every woman across the board. When I give gifts I love making a theme to group things together. If the theme is rest, I’ll box up a dreamy pajama set and a sleep mask or bath salts, a candle and matches. If the theme is peace I’ll gift a journal and some tea and a mug or a bible and special pens. Gifts are my love language so I gift as I’d love to receive!
It’s the last day of October! Was this the worlds fastest month in the history of time for anyone else? My goodness. I’ve looked back on this past month on my most used and most enjoyed things to curate my MVP’s of October.
I always reach a point in October where I essentially rotate four sweaters all the way through February. Not even joking. Four. I’m a creature of comfort and the thought of slipping into anything other than a cozy turtleneck or warm cardigan on a chilly day just isn’t going to cut it. Here’s a roundup of my favorite sweaters across the board for the cozy months ahead.
UPDATE: I first wrote this post nearly one year ago to the day (October of 2017). It’s since been one of the most visited pages on my blog and this time of year it’s pinned multiple times every single day. I thought I’d keep the images and wording the same but update the slider below each outfit idea to current options. While I stand by each image and item I initially selected, it’s been a year, people. Those items are all sold out. Enjoy! Happy photo planning!
Happy Friday, friends! This week was so lovely. I drove the kids down to Waco Monday; it only takes two hours to get there, but somehow that “only” seems to disintegrate when it comes time to turn around and come home. It’s not “only” at all. But once they both fell asleep in the backseat, I was able to listen to a few favorite podcasts and left that drive so encouraged. Starting the week off with that little day trip framed my schedule and mindset for the days to come and it’s just been a beautiful thing.
It’s no secret that I enjoy getting dressed. Even on the days where the only thing on the agenda is a trip to the grocery store, I still put myself together because it truly affects my mood. I’ve learned over the past few years, however, many of you don’t enjoy the process fo getting dressed. Some of you tell me you don’t know what to wear, some of you say nothing looks good of you and some of you tell me “I’m too lazy to get dressed in the morning.” And if you’re nodding along with all of those, here is my solution: the jumpsuit.
