Flowy Dresses and Joshua Tree

DSC_0650So, since moving to California I haven’t done many ‘California’ things. But I have gone to Joshua Tree. I’m going to talk more about this experience in coming posts, but I have to say, the views at night, possibly the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. It literally felt like being in a planetarium, without the dome.

How fun is this dress? I don’t typically wear super loose/flowy dresses but I’ve long been a fan of the look. When my step-dad picked out and gave me this dress I imagined I’d wear it with a belt, and I did. But something about being in Joshua Tree just made the dress feel so much more perfect worn loose.

Can we also just talk about the fact that my step-dad picked this out? Pretty impressive taste if I do say so myself..DSC_0638 DSC_0626Dress: Gifted // Boots:Boots: Freebird c/o ZapposDSC_0652


The homecoming dance is often a magical event for many high school students. But this teen’s night was made even more memorable thanks to her incredibly thoughtful date.  Allie Allen, a 16-year-old girl from Collierville, Tennessee, has brain cancer, and last month she shaved her head after noticing chunks of hair beginning to fall out, according a her blog post. Brayden Carpenter, a friend of Allen’s who took her as his date to his homecoming dance, decided to support her on their big night: Carpenter, who attends, Collierville High School, showed up with his own head shaved in support of Allen.

After snow snarled a Colorado commute, a homeless man’s kind acts were caught on camera. Now, he’s receiving an outpouring of generosity in return. Local news station KOAA filmed Shelby Hudgens, a homeless man, helping to push strangers’ cars up a hill during a snow storm in Colorado last weekend. The deed moved many viewers and one of them, Sarah Webster, set up a GoFundMe page to help Hudgens out. The fundraiser was created on Monday, and, as of Friday morning, people had donated more than $8,000. Definitely proof that no good deed goes unnoticed:) Check out the full story here!

Throwback to Thrift Style Thursday: Fall Favorites

FloralWinterBA I’ve been way out of the loop for Thrift Style Thursday as of late. I’m still a little out of it, but in honor of fall I thought I’d share some of my favorite thrifted fall looks since I started blogging. Have a wonderful throwback/thrift style Thursday. Click the actual photo to see more :)1480232 12102861480034

Be sure to check out what my fellow Thrift Style Thursday-ers came up with this week:


gnotd“No legs, no limits.” That’s Kanya Sesser’s mantra — and every day she proves just how limitless her spirit is. The 23-year-old model and athlete was born without legs, and adopted from Thailand when she was five years old. After moving to the U.S. with her adoptive parents, Sesser learned to walk on her hands and now uses a skateboard to get around. Sesser got into sports as kid because she loved to be outside. “Growing up, being active and all, I played sports with other kids and was always friendly.” As for modeling, she says she loves modeling because it shows a different type of beauty. “I enjoy making money from it and I love showing people what beauty can look like,” she said. “These images show my strength.”. To say I’m truly inspired by this is an understatement, check out the full story here!
