Summer Remix Challenge – Week 3

Black pencil skirt w/white tee and scarf

Another Monday in July, which makes me wonder, "Why is summer going by so quickly?" I cannot believe this is the third week of the Summer Remix Challenge at Greater than Rubies any more than I can believe that August is right around the corner. Unbelievable! This week was a fail for outdoor pictures with the hubby. He was busy getting gear ready for military training and was trying to work on school work. {Who takes courses in the summer anyway...I must be crazy}! I know I have written before ...

Stripes – Part I

CYMERA_20140706_142604

Why do I love stripes? First, they are somewhat new to me. Until I started participating in styling challenges, I didn't really wear stripes or floral or plaid or prints or polka dots...you get the picture. Almost my entire wardrobe was basics and neutral basics at that. I think that can be a little boring especially after I have discovered a whole new world that has variety. Variety makes remixing the pieces you have much more fun. I have discovered that stripes are very versatile which now ... Continue Reading...

Summer Remix Challenge – Week 2

Blue pants with black and white striped top

I secretly love Mondays. Well, not the going back to work stuff but the remixing and linking up outfit challenges with Caitlin at Greater than Rubies. If you have followed along with me, you have probably realized I like to participate in challenges. Honestly, I like having a goal to meet and working with a few items of clothing to meet that goal. In the end I come up with new outfits and new ways to remix my wardrobe, plus I learn something about myself and those who are participating. And ... Continue Reading...

Faith on Friday #6 – Peacemaker

rp_6-576x1024.jpg

This week I have been thinking on what it means/looks like to be a peacemaker. As I am studying through the Sermon on the Mount series with She Reads Truth, I was given this verse to commit to memory: "Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called children of God."   Matthew 5:9  I have found it so interesting that this verse "popped up" just about the time I found some major conflict going on among people {my friends} on Facebook. I could not believe what a few people were posting ... Continue Reading...

Summer Style Me Challenge – the finale!

20140702_065203

The Summer Style Me Challenge wrapped up on Sunday. The 21 days of being styled by Allison at Get Your Pretty On flew by so quickly that I still can't believe it's over. As with any challenge, I always learn so much. For example, when Allison released the shopping list I discovered I really had everything I needed for the challenge. I knew I would have to make some adjustments because I would dress for work not for casual summer. About half way through the challenge I realized the importance of ... Continue Reading...

Summer Remix – Week 1

Woven pants w/crochet top & scarf

Hello, Monday! Today begins a new remix challenge with Caitlin at Greater than Rubies. My first remix challenge was with Caitlin back in January. It was a great way to start out the new year. I learned so much from that challenge so I am really excited to try it again. Hopefully, I have chosen better pieces to remix together, but we shall see by the end of the month. If I learned anything, it was to choose weather appropriate clothing for the season. In January, I simply chose items that I could ... Continue Reading...
