Thanksgiving Week Looks

Last week was very busy, despite being on vacation. I swear that while we call it a vacation, we do so much more than we do at home for fear of not getting enough in while we’re supposed to just relax! We did get to relax with my family, which was great because it was Jake’s first time meeting a lot of my family in person. 


My sister was my photographer while I was home, and I got to have some throwback moments to my modeling days while she clicked away. I’ve gotten a lot of complements on my outfits from last week, so I figured I’d collect them all and share of the days I got pictures of. 

Here we go! 

Monday was spent driving some more to see my aunts and Godparents. It was warmer on the East Coast than here in Kansas, but I love to be cozy in big comfy sweaters. This one is SO soft and was great for the weather. Shop this look HERE.



My cave exploring outfit. I wanted to be comfortable and warm, and man this sweater delivered. It’s big and comfortable but also cute enough to not be frumpy. Add my pom pom hat and it was great for being a few stories underground! Shop the look HERE.



Lunch Outing with Besties Outfit. I wanted to be cute but comfortable. This off-the-shoulder sweater has this great lace-up back and gave me the chance to highlight the beautiful lace detail of one of my favorite bras without being too much. Shop this look HERE.



Thanksgiving Look. I am so in love with this sweater. The balloon sleeves add a great touch of fun and I sized up to have the off-the-shoulder look. Shop it HERE.

Friday we went to visit my dad, who lives right by the beach so it was COLD. I didn’t really take my coat off all day. This is really the only full body picture I got! This scarf was actually a gift from my Godmother, and I was extra thankful for its warmth! Get this look HERE

There you have it! If you have any questions about any of the looks, feel free to ask 🙂

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!
  • “There is beauty in simplicity”
My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
.
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
