    Shaped by Style: Psychedelic 60’s

    “I think many people today misunderstand love to mean total and complete acceptance no matter what, and forget that sometimes love — even unconditional love — means acknowledging and improving (or helping to improve) flaws. The more you love someone, the more you are willing to be the first person who steps out and says “hey, I think you need some help in this area” if they’re doing something wrong.

    Maternity Style and a Giveaway! (CLOSED)

    Happy Tuesday! Today’s post is going to be short because I am trying really hard to update Etsy and also because… tired pregnant mom. Not gonna lie, I’m SO ready to be done being pregnant! I thrifted this skirt on Saturday because I had nothing to wear that fit for a wedding we were going to… on Saturday. Last minute, much? Sadly, I didn’t get to take any outfit pictures other than the one I posted on Instagram, but I think this skirt is destined to be something I always pair with other patterns! I already have two or three different outfits dreamed up and all of them include another…
