Pink Blouse, Blue Jeans, Moccasins--- Thrifted
Pink Scarf--- Meijer
"Be Still" Necklace--- gift from my Mom (Shape of Love Shoppe)
Oh my, this Autumn is off to a loverly start! Is anyone else finding it hard to believe that September is nearly finished? This lady certainly is.
So far this season, I've been really enjoying my comfortable jeans paired with flowy tops, scarves, and long simple necklaces! My idea of a perfect outfit is always a mixture of functional and feminine. :-)
This necklace is probably my favorite jewelry piece in my collection. Soon after baby Promise went to be with the Lord, my Mom bought this for me. I am a worrier, a stress maniac, and over-thinker. My wise Momma knows me so well and knew how much this simple reminder would mean to me as I continue trying to put my future (in particular my desire for children) into the Lord's hands. The shop that makes these beautiful pieces of jewelry is definitely one worth looking through! Make sure to go to the link for it at the beginning of this post (and no, I'm not being paid to advertise them. They are just that great!).
If you've been following my blog since early spring or longer, you'll remember these *favorite* shoes of mine. I'm so happy that the weather is finally cooling down enough that I can wear them again!
For my hairstyle, after washing, I applied some mousse and let the remains of my perm take over. My hair stylist is shocked that my perm is still holding after more than a year! I am definitely shocked too... and missing my naturally wavy hair (I've been blow-drying the somewhat limp curl out most days).
To cover the top part of my hair (where the perm has grown out!) I twisted back some hair and clipped it in place. Simple enough!
Fun note: Last month I did a hot oil treatment on my hair (just a simple one with coconut oil and olive oil) and loved it! I just did another one today (this treatment is recommended for once every month) and, once again, really enjoyed it! Would any of you ladies be interested in knowing more??? Let me know!
Another fun note: Tomorrow I will be meeting with my hair stylist to *hopefully* get some more prominent layers put in and *maybe* cut some bangs for the cold months. I know, I know... bangs can be a pain, but I have had them before and I'm kind of feeling a need for some change in my hairstyle. Believe me, I've agonized over this decision (again with the whole "over thinker" thing!).
Andrew and I have been keeping life simple this month. Between long hours at his job, setting the house up for the season, and several different health issues (please be praying, if you would!), we've really enjoyed the peace and calm in a having a bit more of a "private life". I'm also back to teaching two of my sisters piano once a week, which is a lot of fun (especially just having the extra time to visit!).
So, how many of you ladies are scarf-wearers??? Also, do you prefer bold jewelry or the more "understated" style?
You already know that I adore my scarves... When it comes to jewelry, I like slightly bolder earrings and bracelets, but keep it on the more simple-yet-special style with necklaces.
Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!!
