Transitioning neon.

 Skinnies: Francesca's {similar here}, Top: Target, Heels: Zara (old) {similar here, need these},
Sweater: Francesca's {similar here}, Necklace: T+J Designs

These were taken right after hubs took his baby mama out for breakfast burritos.
Hey-when a craving hits, a craving hits....the baby wants what it wants;)

Most people think that the neons have to go to the back of the closet
when autumn hits. I love to keep brights incorporated year round.
Pairing with some fall-ish pieces can help transition into the new season.

One bright piece that I will be keeping on rotation is 
this gorgeous necklace from T+J Designs.
I could really get crazy on their website! 
Their jewelry is beautiful, and the selection is amazing.
Be sure to sign up on their site and you will receive 20% off of your first purchase!

Perfect timing.

Tee: ASOS {similar here and here}, Denim: Rocking Republic {similar here and here}, 
Ankle Boots: Vince Camuto {similar here}

Well....judging by the tee you can see that we've had a lot going on the past few months:)
This bitty bump didn't happen overnight. It actually took lots of planning,
and trying.....a year to be exact. 

I've never been at a point in my life where I 
didn't have control of the next step. College-yes. Job- yes. Marriage-yes.
Baby-yes. But month after month passes....and still no baby. Negative test after negative test.
And you begin to wonder if you're broken {and boy, is that a crummy feeling}.
I never realized before how precious fertility is. It really is such a gift.

So we continued to pray......and wait. I'll admit, this was the first time that I really began
to question God. I had a strong desire to be a mom, a desire that I knew was from Him.
So what are we waiting on here, God? And He would always tell me: "My timing is perfect."

So we kept praying...and waiting {did I mention this is not my strong suit?}. 
And finally, literally on month number 12...on an early summer morning....that little test came back positive. My mom always told me that when I became pregnant, I would look back over the past few months and see how everything worked together to be just as it should. And she's right {hate when that happens}, it does. 

Maybe God wanted me to grow up a little bit, maybe He was waiting for just the right little egg, 
or maybe He wanted me to realize it's not about's about Him. 
All I know, is that His timing really is perfect.

Hair ties that hit close to home.

 Top: Local boutique {but love this and this}, Monogram Earrings: Etsy,
Sunnies: Charming Charlie's {similar here},  Necklace: gifted {similar here}

Today I'm excited to introduce you guys to 6 Degrees Hair Ties.
Not only do they have an incredible and fashionable selection;
but what makes this company really great is that they
 donate 5% of all sales to various charities, their main one including 
First Descents- an organization offering young adult cancer fighters
and survivors a free outdoor adventure experience
{climbing, surfing....pretty awesome}.

This cause is especially close to my heart.
During my freshman year of college my Dad was diagnosed
with stage four lymphoma. It was a very dark time that,
by God's hand, ended up becoming the greatest miracle I have personally experienced.
{He has been cancer free for 9 years now}

So before your Monday gets away, check out 6 Degrees Hair Ties here.

On a lighter note,
I don't know if anyone has noticed but I love GroopDealz!
I purchase a lot of my jewelry from their site.
If you're unfamiliar, they are a daily deal site that specializes 
in boutique jewelry, clothing, and home decor. 
Stay tuned because they have some exciting news going on that 
I can't wait to share with you later this week!

In the meantime, here's a first look at a couple of super cute items they have going on sale today:

Straight Talking

Dress: W by Azwell {but love this and this!}, Booties: Vince Camuto {similar here}, 
Bib Necklace: here, Long Necklace: gifted {similar here}, Sunnies: H&M {similar here}, Bag: Louis Vuitton

TGIF guys!
It has been about a hundred years since I've straightened my hair.
It takes much longer too straighten it then I care for, so it never happens.
I hope the four day week was good to everybody!
We had a great visit at my parents last week. Spent some time with my older brother and his sweet fam.
They have two little boys that always keep the house pretty lively!
 Love them so much, always tough to leave everybody.

This weekend hubs and I will finally be getting some time at home.
Once again, lots of eating and football on the agenda.
{This trend will be continuing all fall-FYI}
My Tide is off this weekend so we'll be keeping up with the rest of the SEC.

Happy weekend friends!
Thanks for reading:)
