Mad for Plaid

Hello Fall! 
Fall is easily one of my favorite times of the year. I love the cool weather and being able to layer, layer, layer! It's hard to believe that it's already almost October... this year has flown by for me!

I love this plaid lightweight jacket from Zaful! Plaid is a staple for me during the fall and the fabric is very comfortable! I'll be showing some more items from Zaful this week so stay tuned for that!

Feeling & Looking Your Best With Modesty

As we transition into a new season, I have loved being able to getting out all my fall/winter clothes from storage. While going through my clothes the other day I realized that my style has changed drastically over the years, especially now that I'm a mom! (That's still feels so weird for me to say!) Growing up I used to be into trying out all of the new trends and I hadn't really developed a true style of my own. 
I recently have started to build a capsule wardrobe, containing only clothing items I truly love and feel comfortable in. While doing this it has made me realize how important wearing modest clothes is to me. 
Modesty has always been important to me but growing up, finding modest clothing was really hard! In high school, spaghetti straps, and sheer tops were popular and those trends carried over into prom season, making modest prom dresses so hard to find! After struggling to find clothes that were cute & modest, I really started to think that you couldn't be fashionable without sacrificing modesty. (Not true!!)

 I value modesty not only because of my personal beliefs, but because of how modest clothing makes me feel. My confidence level soars when I'm wearing something I feel comfortable and pretty in! As women I think we all have things about our bodies that we would like to change, so dressing in a way that builds your confidence is so important! 
Modest clothing for women is so much easier to find now than in years before. Modest dresses are one of my favorite fashion items because of their wide versatility! With the fall season upon us, I've linked some of my current favorite modest dresses below.

Now I'm just wishing I could go back high school and wear one of these modest prom dresses instead! 
Building a wardrobe with timeless, modest  pieces hasn't always been easy but I love that I can look at my closet and feel comfortable and fashionable in each and every item I own.

Jewelry I Will Treasure Forever

This past year has brought a lot of changes to my life.
One of the most proud moments in my life was giving birth to my son Kade. Looking back at the experience, it’s still very surreal for me. I remember thinking before I went into labor… “I can’t do this!” I was so scared of what was going to happen and how life was going to change but it’s been one of the most wonderful times of my life. The transition of becoming a mom has been more natural that I expected it would be and the love I have for my son has given my life new meaning.
I love my new role of being a mother and I had been looking for some way to have a daily reminder of how blessed I am for being given the opportunity to be Kade’s mom. I customized this Gold Plated Initial Horizontal Bar Necklace from Onecklace to say the words “Mama” to remind myself when life gets stressful that I can do hard things and that my family and relationship with my son are what’s most important.
Onecklace specializes in customized silver and gold jewelry ranging from monogram necklace, signature bracelets to stackable rings. I especially love their many collections to choose from such as birthstone jewelry, friendship jewelry, bridesmaid jewelry and mother jewelry. A cool feature on the Onecklace website is that as you are customizing a piece of jewelry, it'll give you a photo rendering of what your item will look like so you can see exactly how it will look before actually ordering it! There truly is a jewelry piece for every occasion on Onecklace! I was very impressed with Onecklace's fast shipping, which is always free by the way! (a great bonus when buying online right?)  Their website offers great tips on how to choose the right ring size, selecting your birthstone, and the correct way to clean your jewelry.
I love that Onecklace allows you to customize their products to whatever is meaningful to you! This necklace is going to be one of my most treasured jewelry items that I will wear for years.
