Sunday Style: Spring Trends

Today's post is a two-for post- two outfits and packed with trends for Spring! I was asked by the resale company thredUp  to talk about a Wardrobe Cheat Sheet and share some of my picks for Spring.  Have you heard of thredUp? It's a company that takes your unused clothing that is in good condition and lists it on a site and then sells it for you. They send you a bag and you send it in and watch the credits come rolling in from your sales. So easy!  I live in Michigan where there are four seasons and winter particularly is difficult for me. The cold weather and snow are miserable and I live for seeing the spring each year!  I decided to show two looks that I think are perfect for spring! The first is this bright coral dress that I paired with some floral pumps. This whole look was from thredUp! I love the value of what I get for my money. These pumps were practically new and the dress was a little more "gently used" but they noticed this before it was sent to

Sunday Style: Vintage Style

If I haven't made you a believer in  karinadresses  yet, then I hope after this post you will be one! Every time I wear one of their dresses, I receive so many compliments and I feel like a million bucks!  As many of you know, I've been going through a personal transformation. My fitness routines and diet have changed and my body is catching up. When I first saw this dress, I wasn't sure how it would look on me. I struggle with all of the same insecurities that you all do!  I thought it might be too straight for me since I have wider hips- the struggle is real for us real women with real bodies and real curves!  But when I got it and put it on, all of those insecurities faded and to my amazement, I was so thrilled with everything about this dress. From the cut to the pattern to the color, I am in love with it. The fabric has stretch to it so it helps to cover and even enhance my curves. I'm proud of the body that I have and Iike to show it.  I'm wearing

Love Yourself

Justin Bieber sings it best... ' Cause if you like the way you look that much... Ohhhh baby you should go and love yourself.. . Love yourself...And by the way, if you are asking, yes, I do listen to Justin Bieber and have been known on occasion to belt out lyrics...Moving on... All you need is love. Love is all you need. Thanks to my friends over at Ollie Marie Boutique  for hooking me up with my outfit today! I'm loving this gold foil tee and these  jeans ! Ollie Marie Boutique has such incredible finds and deals! I'm loving their assortment of clothing and accessories that fit into any budget. An online boutique with unique items and wonderful customer service is sometimes hard to find but they have taken care of me and will do the same for you!  Can we talk about love again for a minute? Love sure is tricky. We think about love in our relationships with our significant others or maybe even the way we love our children or most importantly  the way we love God.
