Another Monday, another day full of to-do’s :) After a busy, busy weekend including purging the clutter in this house, having a yardsale, and a wonderful day at church, I have spent all day trying to bring order back to this house.
I also decided to face a fashion fear head on…denim on denim. If you grew up as a child in the 80’s and 90’s you probably have a similar fear. When you hear of someone wearing denim on denim do you have flashbacks of this?
My husband is far from perfect, but I am so proud of the spiritual leader he is becoming in this household. He guides Stella and I daily in prayer and The Word. Every time I walk by our kitchen table and see this sitting at the head of the table I smile and say a prayer of thanks for my dear husband ♥♡♥0
Happy Monday beautiful friends! I hope the start of the week is finding you in good spirits. I have had a difficult time waking up today, so I’m keeping things nice a comfortable, getting housework done at a slower pace. It’s getting done though :) After a lazy morning, Stella and I spent the early afternoon with one of my besties, just talking clothes, love and kids over coffee. It was a good start to the week! Now I’m home trying to conquer the mountain of dirty clothes that have accumulated over the past week.
Did you know that before the turn of the century housewives referred to Monday as Blue Monday due to the dread of doing laundry? There is much more to it than that, but I’ve always found it funny that Monday’s have always tended to be the day that I wash clothes and there is an actual term related to it :) You can read more about the history behind the blue hued day here.0
Low and behold the polka dots are already back (told you I loved them) I believe there are probably at least five polka dotted garments in my closet right now, I just can’t get enough! Do you have a pattern that you seem drawn to lately?

I’ve decided to start blogging outfit posts again. I used to be good about daily blogs and posting creative outfits…and I miss it. It made me happy to plan an outfit, document it and write about what was on my mind. I shied away from it after having Stella because I lost my confidence. I didn’t like my post pregnancy body and although looking back at previous posts I did try to embrace it, I failed. I could fail again…but if I do I’m sure I’ll pick myself back up once more.
My hope with posting a couple outfits a week is that I will continue to grow my own self esteem in a positive direction, inspire others who may be struggling with self image and encourage others to take worth in themselves too. These posts aren’t about how good I look or how nice it must be to buy new clothes every week. It’s about being proud of who you are, letting your outward appearance reflect your character and to get creative with what you already have.
With that being said, here is what I wore today :) My husband actually dislikes this coat greatly, but my old soul can’t help itself, I love it!. He can’t understand why I want to wear a big frumpy coat that doesn’t fit but it’s unique, vintage and warm. In the south there aren’t many opportunities to legitimately wear heavy coats but today was one of those days.0
Thirty days of what I’m thankful for- Day Eight
Thirty days of what I’m thankful for- Days six and seven (oops)
I got so caught up in election coverage yesterday that I never posted day six…oopsie!
Day six- I’m thankful to live in a country where freedom reigns and where we have the privilege to vote for our leaders!!!
Day seven- I am thankful that my hope is in the Lord and not man. On days like this when disappointment is evident, it is nothing more than disappointment. My hope is in the LORD!
Thirty days of what I’m thankful for- Day Five
