Wallflower Outcast

Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble. Psalm 119:165
I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. Psalm 94:18-19

Wide Leg Wonders
Trust me, I know the title of this post sounds funny, but it’s TRUE! One of my all-time favorite trends that dates back to the 70’s and has finally come back is wide-legged pants. Not only are they a dream to wear for someone my height (because they make your legs look 10 feet tall ;)), but they look cute on absolutely EVERYONE…I don’t want that to sound shallow at all, but sometimes I don’t understand the fashion world, in the way that they create trends that only certain body types can wear, for example, skinny jeans. Sure, these are great for some body types, like taller people, but I wear skinny jeans, they tend to make me look even shorter than I am, unless I pair them with knee high boots. Wide leg pants are a trend that works for everyone! They can be dressed up, dressed down, worn for work, or worn for play…wide leg pants are a gem when it comes to one’s wardrobe! :)

Song of the Day: "Magic" by Colbie Caillat

Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. Philippians 2:14-16

On a little personal note…today is my boyfriend’s, Jake, and my 9 month anniversary together :) These past 9 months have been such a time of growth in the Lord through sweet glimpses of the strong love He has for us and through seeing His sovereignty in the strength and purity He has allowed our relationship to have :) I can honestly say for the first and last time in my life that I am truly in love, and it is a beautiful thing…He loves Christ first, as do I, and that makes us all the more in love with each other. :) I love you with all of my heart sweet Jake!!!

MAD FOR MAXIS

I must confess that I am crazy about maxi skirts. Lately, I’ve noticed that maxi skirts are beginning to emerge as a classic trend, and I LOVE it! They can conform to absolutely any event, and are nothing short of a classy look. I’m one who dresses for coziness, yet cuteness, that is my forte, and I can assure you that the maxi fits that description to a tee. If you were to ask me, I would tell you that the maxi is a staple item for any wardrobe, and something wonderful about them is that they are affordable! Here are a couple of my favorite maxis, perfect for every day. :) Xo, Em

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INANIMATE OBJECT?

A:

I would most definitely have to say that my favorite inanimate object is a camera. :) One of my favorite things about life is making memories and being able to capture those memories. Then whenever you want to go back and relive them for a moment, you simply look at a picture. Xo
