Floral and Flares

March 23, 2016

How fun is this floral and flares combo?! I have one pair of flare jeans that I really love. Since I do wear them a lot, I knew it would be nice to have a lighter colored option. They seem a little more casual and also perfect for spring. This pair from Fidelity hits all the marks. It was a new brand for me, but the quality and fit are really great. I paired my denim with a tie front floral blouse, a suede vest, and my lace up peep toe bootie (a favorite from last year that is still available). Together it makes for the perfect 70s vibe, which you know I have been all about lately! I just got this suede vest, and I think it will be the perfect layering piece for spring. Suede seems to be a big trend! I wore this outfit to for my nephew’s birthday party this weekend. So fun! I also wore this vest to church on Sunday. On Monday, I swapped my jeans for my striped Ann Taylor slacks (seen here and now on sale!) and wore them to work. #RealLife

In the nature of transparency and in an effort to also share pieces of myself rather than just my clothes (which I love doing!), it’s been a week y’all. As many of you may know, Russ and I started our first round of IVF last week. We are so excited, prayerful, and hopeful for this journey. It’s not one we have entered into lightly. In reality, what it looks like on a daily basis right now is a lot of shots and fluctuating hormones. Woof. I also have several friends going through really heavy stuff, and my heart is burdened for them. One of my best friends lost her sister last week unexpectedly, and today I stand beside her at the funeral. Adulting is no joke you all. The realities of life are difficult. I am comforted by the reminder in this Lenten season that we do not have a God who is unacquainted with or distant from our suffering. He enters it with us. Easter is coming.

    Yes, He always enters with us! I love that…and I’m praying that this first round will be the ONLY round for you guys, praying for a sweet, healthy baby or babies! 😉 We might do our 3rd round of IVF this summer…still undecided though.

    Prayers for your friend as well, such a hard loss.
    Of course, you look stunning!

    Absolutely love this top! Thinking and praying for you in this IVF journey – and so many prayers for your friend as well. Loss is hard all around but I can’t imagine losing someone so close so unexpectedly.

    Omg, I am so sorry for your loss! Being an adult sucks. A lot of the reality you don’t realize can happen, does happen. I am wishing you and your husband the best during IVF. When I was going through the fertility preservation process, I hated it. Everything was in a speed up process and more shots than the usual process because of my diagnosis. But I’m sure all this will be worth it! On a brighter note, you totally rock those retro look! You look so good in 70s style!

    I love your floral top! I really need to branch out when it comes to jeans… I tend to stick with skinny but I love the flare style on you!
