We’re a full month into 2018 and it’s time to do a check-in on our New Year’s resolutions. How is everyone doing?! It’s pretty 50/50 for me. I’m thriving in my resolution to grow a stronger relationship with Jesus, but I’m a bit of a hot mess when it comes to the rest of my life. For example, my apartment is an absolute disaster on the regular lately!
So, in order to keep us on track with our resolutions, I’m sharing 5 *easy* things we can all do to declutter our lives. Both physically and mentally!
1. PURGE YOUR CLOSET
This one is hard for me. Does anyone else get a little emotionally attached to their clothes?! Regardless, some things just have to go. Take 20 minutes to go through your closet and pull out anything you haven’t worn in the past year. I SWEAR you’ll feel a weight lifted off you! I usually give my old clothes to my sisters (which is awesome because I can always steal them back if I need to-ha!), but if your clothes are in good shape, try selling them on the Poshmark app. Or, consider donating them to a local shelter!

Happy Monday! I’m OBSESSED with this puff-sleeve top. It’s the perfect piece for layering. This is my “Friday in the office” look because jeans are SO necessary at the end of the week. Am I right?!
It’s so wonderful to be writing again! It’s no secret that I’ve been a little MIA from my website these past few weeks. Truthfully, I was just feeling SO discouraged. Now, don’t get me wrong, I came back from a wonderful Christmas vacation ready to take on 2018. I began working out, eating better, praying more and just being a better version of myself all-around. I am the happiest I’ve ever been! But that was the thing…I didn’t feel like this blog was reflecting my true self. Does that make sense? No? Let me break it down for you… (keep scrolling to read) Read More
I’m back in NYC after a week-long Christmas vacation in Michigan. As many of you know, I’m originally from Grand Rapids and I’ve been back & forth what feels like a million times this year! One of the things I am most grateful for in 2017 was how much I was able to travel (although you couldn’t pay me enough to go back into an airport anytime soon). It felt like the week flew by, so I’m reminiscing with a recap of all my snowy outfits + where you can shop them! PLUS – I’m sharing what I got for Christmas at the end, so keep scrolling! Read More
As we celebrate the very last weekend of 2017 (can you believe it?!), I thought I’d share a round-up of my favorite looks this year and take a look back at my journey into adulthood. I love doing this every January to remind myself how far I’ve come and to set goals for where I hope to go. Keep scrolling to see my favorite outfits by month and to read about how I found my faith this year! Read More
Okay guys, I’m back!! Wohoo! After battling a week long cold, I finally mustered up the energy to finish this blog post, which I’ve been trying to get to for a long time. Christmas is only THREE days away (can you believe it?!), which means New Year’s Eve is quick to follow! I’ve never been a “go all-out” person on NYE, so as a rule I like to keep my outfit spending to a minimum. When you’re scrambling for an outfit, keeping a budget in mind can be hard to do. So here enters: How to do New Year’s Eve on a Budget! Not going out? That’s okay (me neither), there’s some cozy & festive pieces for you here too! Read More
My, how the holidays have crept up on me! Does anyone else feel that way? I have a CRAZY busy (but fun!) week coming up, so I spent Friday after work finishing my Christmas shopping. I’m finally feeling somewhat on top of things! For those of you who are also in crazy holiday mode, I’m sharing this look for some holiday party outfit inspiration. How fun is this shimmer fabric?!

It feels like the past few weeks have FLOWN by and I can hardly believe that Christmas is right around the corner! From a super nerdy fashion girl to all of you, this is one of my favorite times to style outfits. It’s probably the only time you’ll catch me in bright colors and sequins (more of that to come – stay tuned!!) If you’ve been following me for a long time, you know I usually stick to neutral colored outfits, but I’m totally using the holidays as an excuse to try out the latest trend: red, red, red. Read More
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I’m here to help you break out the hot chocolate, Christmas slippers and thermal pajama sets. Consider this the ultimate guide to coziness this holiday season!
As a rule, I don’t like to spend a lot of money “seasonal” clothing that I can’t wear all year long. So when I came across these super affordable mix & match pajamas, I just HAD to take them home with me. The best thing this is they all go together, so you can really have fun with mixing patterns! There are SO many different options on Old Navy’s Website, but I rounded up my favorites below:
When it comes to makeup, I’m not one to spend an arm and a leg. Truthfully, makeup kind of scares me. I always feel like I’m doing something wrong! But lipstick is another story. It’s one beauty product that I will never skimp on. It’s literally on your mouth! Think about that for a second… Wearing a bad lipstick is a bit like imprisonment. Is it on my teeth? I cant eat without smearing it. Wait, I can’t even drink without completely ruining it. Ok – I just won’t move all day.
No, no NO! Lipstick should be empowering and these 7 options, friends, are exactly that. They’re a bit of a splurge – but I stand behind these formulas with all of my heart. So pick a color you love and wear it all day, everyday! Read More
