{...the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love} - Galatians 5:6

Don't you think I look like a secretary today? Alot of people commented on my outift today as being "very professional". I guess the touch of glasses would have been over-the-top, wouldn't it?  Even though I may look like I need a telephone and a desk, I still love my outfit because it's perfect for the movie Secretariat.  My mom saw it a couple weeks ago and said it was a wholesome movie and very good.  I'm anxious to see it now becuase it sounds like such a good movie.  Has anyone else seen it or have any reviews?

{If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.} - 1 John 1:6-7

I loved what Linley from dwelling and telling had to say about authenticity.  It really made me realize that blogs aren't something to hide behind, but a way to network and share your feelings with people who feel the same about fashion as you.  As I read her post {seen here} I noticed that I should be writing like I talk and not become or try to be something I'm not. Thanks Linley for the great advice!

Double dose

                               {Come near to God and he will come near to you}  - James 4:8

Sorry for being a slacker and not posting lately! This week has been crazy busy and it's def. not going to get any better so today, i have a double dose post for you :)  The shoes above I secretly snatched from my sisters closet and I have been wearing them every chance I get.  They are so comfortable but also tall and awkard at the same time.  I wore this first combo to church and realized I had yet to wear this dress.  I had bought it while on a trip in Penn. and added a touch of my DIY skills with the jewels.  I love the sleeved on this dress and the flow it has.. great for bundling and the right accecories in the winter or free flowing in the summer.  What do you think about this look?

As you can see, my attire was all but inspiring today!  My days of internship are coming to a close and believe me.. I don't think I'll be missing them.  I am glad that I had this experience though because I would've been considering a career i'm not at all interested in! Did you ever have a jobshadowing or internship experience that helped you?
I also decided to raid my mom's old cosmetics and jewelry this past week.  The geek-y glasses have been a trend but i've been a little hesitant to it.  When I found these glasses in one of my mom's drawers, I knew they would suit me! A little geek, vintage, and chic.  These glasses will be my go to accessory for a while:)

Ever have those days when you feel like mush and everything seems to bring you down? That's mine today.  Everytime i look at something I think something bad about myself or just can't get the "get-up-and-go" to do anything today.  As you can see, my outfit post for today is done on my mannequin just for this reason!  Everything I put on made me look fat..haha.  So, as I have a moody day, I'll keep the above verse in my mind.  God is always with me and he cares, even if I believe noone else does.  I am not alone, your not alone, God is with us.

Everytime I wear this jacket i feel like a drummer boy (or maybe its because my boyfriend tells me!)  Today, i felt in charge and ready to take on the world.  I was able to intern at a pharmacy over the past couple of days, trying to get in hours for school and whatnot, and the experience was enlightening.  I got to fill my first prescription and much more!  Even though I really enjoyed that, i had to wear a uniform of blah kakihs and a polo...not much for a girl who loves to mix things up. So, i decided it was the day to breakout this beauty. The colors and the structured shoulder makes it stand out to me.  This wonderful jacket came from my trip to New York this past summer. I was so excited when i found this in H&M because it was unique.

Busy, busy, busy.  Between the ice sheets on the road and my crazy schedule, life was a little hectic today. With the cold weather i tried to come up with a cozy outfit to keep toasty.

I was so excited when i got this skirt for christmas from F21.  Its perfect for dressing up or down and i can wear brown or black with it.  The gray top is another one of my favorites because it actually fits me as a "shirt dress" with leggings.   Also, I've fallen in love with the cowlneck scarf trend! They are very practical and warm, while fashionable and statement pieces.  The mustard colored tights are my favoite piece.   They add the suprise factor that people stare at you and think, "why do you have yellow legs?" But, I love them even if it means taking a chance in my small town.  Hope your staying cozy today :)   

                                     I also noticed i have no shoes on..sorry! I would wear black knee boots or my F21 booties

Today, was sunny and beautiful so i decided to stick to those warm colors and play up my red and browns!  Autumn and spring are my two favorite seasons because of the changing of seasons and the incredible warm weather.  I tried something new today, tucking in my sweater with a skirt.  What do you think? I appreciate any feedback because i get my inspiration from several other bloggers!  Hope you have warm weather coming your way :)

{ And the servant of the lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient..}
 - 2 Timothy 2:24

Church today really opened my eyes to a subject I hadn't thought about.  Our preacher talked about being servants and humbling yourself rather than implementing today's society rules.  As i examined myself, I realized that I needed to watch my attitude towards others.  Becoming a servant isn't just saying you are, but believing that idea and using it to help others, self sacrifice, and let God be the real king of our lives.  The qoute that stood out in the sermon most was "Take off your crown and put on your sandals."  If each one of us took time to do this each day as God did when he washed the feet of the disciples, think of how different the world would be today.
