Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders (+ GIVEAWAY)

It is hard to believe the holiday Christmas is over with, however our celebration of Christ is not. How was your Christmas? I will be honest I had a lot of great moments with family, and I got a lot of needed things though, so that is nice. Visit my instagram here to see some of my favorite holiday moments.

Today’s outfit is just my favorite so far. I recently got this poncho from White Plum boutique with a gift card and did not pay shipping- so I got this baby for free. SCORE! (exact poncho for purchase here). I just LOVE the sweater feel of it, and the fact that it has sweater sleeves is an extra bonus so a long sleeve shirt to wear underneath is not required like most ponchos.

The leggings were a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law from Kohls and although they are nice they kept riding down, so I kept having to pull the leggings back up- very annoying!

I have seriously worn this poncho twice now, and I can’t wait to find other ways to style it in the near future.

Outfit details: Poncho (White Plum (exact here)//Necklace: Redeemed Jewelry (exact here)//Leggings: Kohls ($16.00, gift)//Boots: Belk ($90, got for $20)//Earrings: thrifted gift.

The necklace you see on me contains some of the lyrics to one of my favorite songs called Oceans by the worship band Hillsong. (If you haven’t heard this amazing song I have found the lyrics here for you to read).The necklace was part of a giveaway with Carrie and Sherri and the shop that makes the necklace is called Redeemed Jewelry. (shop exact one here). This shop sells cute necklaces with messages of hope, worship song lyrics, scripture and images. I am obsessed with how lovely it is, and it came with an arrow and anchor charm. I just love jewelry that involves a story behind it or a biblical truth such as this pendant here. When I wear this necklace (worn 3 times now) and feel discouraged I just look at it and am reminded to just trust God, with my feelings, day, situations and future.

What about you, do you have a favorite article of clothing or accessory that just speaks to you or reminds you of some dear things in life? Leave me a comment and let me know, I would love to hear about yours.

*Also today starting at 7amCST and thru 12/31 12am CST a few bloggers and myself are having a $100 Starbucks instagram loop giveaway that you won’t want to miss. Just go here on my instagram to enter- must follow the rules to be eligible to win. Goodluck!

Cross My Heart

DSC01722
Would you believe this look was just thrown together last minute. I have had all of these clothes and heels in my wardrobe since last fall and thought I would bring them out.
DSC01727
The only new addition to this wardrobe is my new H&M cross necklace, it was $4.95 in the store and how could I resist!!!
DSC01720
I choose to layer this necklace with another thrifted gold chain. I tried to keep the jewelry to a minimal so that there wasn’t so much going on at the top since there is a mixture of prints going on already here.

Throw on a beanie and the look is not only casual but creates a street wear style. This is a look I can’t wait to style with combat boots and leggings instead of jeans in the future. Lucky for me this coming weekend holds boot shopping for me. (Sooo excited!)

To those blessed days…

DSC01675
Too often I take for granted how blessed I really am. I have the Lord Jesus as my Lord and Savior and in my heart, 4 kids, an AWESOME hubby a roof over my head and owned vehicles and more. I am just so glad for all that God has given me in this life. For the days I may not feel blessed I hope this post will not only inspire you, but myself as well.

With the holidays approaching and this holiday or month being about Thankfulness I will be the first to admit that a lot of times I am not thankful enough, instead I just go through life wanting more and more only to find that what I finally got wasn’t enough or what I actually needed.
DSC01684
The day I took these photos my children were all great and went to bed SUPER early than normal, the weather was summery and breezy (unlike the 30 degree and less weather lately).

God made a beautiful day that day and for that I am thankful.
DSC01673
I am thankful that I got this maxi skirt and black top from JCPenny for free with the buy $10 of stuff or more get $10 off coupon. When I feel I don’t have enough- even in clothes God always provides. When I have been with little food, patience, perseverance, faith, clothing- God has provided and for that I am thankful.

What are some things you are thankful for? What are ways you can be thankful this holiday?

Outfit details: Shirt: JC Penny (clearance)//Skirt: JC Penny (clearance)//Flats: Mix It (via Plato’s closet)//Necklace: dxmall.com//Nail Polish: Rimmel London: Red, Steady, Go..
