Ikat

 

Oh how I’ve been itching to style these crazy awesome heels. My beautiful sister-in-law brought them back to me from her trip to Ukraine. Much more fitting than an “I <3 Ukraine” t-shirt or a postcard, wouldn’t you agree? HOW fun! She’s da best. Thank you Brittany, and thank you Ukraine.

Aren’t long weekends the best.
Blogging is a riot. But as much as I love picking out outfits, getting all dolled up, and having a personal photo shoot a few times a week… there is so much more to it! Like connecting with other amazing women all over the world, many who I would probably never have otherwise met! It’s doubly a blast when you can get together in real life, talk about fish out of water stuff. Bloggers beyond their laptops. So I had a blast getting to hang with Chelsea, Cate, Moriah, Jessi, and Jen in uptown this weekend. We grabbed coffee at French Meadow and then perused Buffalo Exchange and a few other stores together.

I had a blast checking out the websites of my carefully selected sponsors for my absolute favorite item from each store. Part of what makes these little babies my fav is that they are all under $50! See something you love? Want to see more? Click the photo to head to the store’s website.
Have a beautiful Sunday!

Flowy

Yesterday I got to see one of the most moving moments of my existence. A beautiful, bright-eyed first-grade girl who uses a walker due to developmental delay was playing kickball with her class and it was her turn to kick. It was so wonderful to see her excitement as the ball neared her foot. She gave a gentle kick, supported by a helper, and began to slowly move towards first base. The thickness of joy grew in the room with every step she took. The game was on a delightful pause as the gym teacher clapped and all the students cheered and even began chanting her name. I will never forget the look on her face, every inch of it covered with bliss, pride, and acceptance. One of those little glimpses of heaven, to be perfectly cliche. I know it touched God’s heart to see the dignity and grace of this class and his little daughter in this moment.
Now that I got all Chicken Soup for the Soul on ya… have an awesome Wednesday, friends! And don’t forget to enter to win a dress of your choice from eShakti!
