Date in A Cave

 A couple weeks ago one of my friends took me out on a secret "friend date."

All I knew was to dress nice, but warm. And to bring a water bottle :)

And so, I had fun picking out an outfit. I just found this skirt recently... isn't it so fun looking? Very comfy and flows so nicely :D 

On my way to find out...

We are going in the caverns!!!

Such a great friend :) And a great view ;)


Shirt: Thrift
Skirt: Thrift
Tank Top: Hand-me-down
Jacket: Hand-me-down
Shoes: Hand-me-down
Hat: gift
Necklace: thrift 
(and leggings for warmth)

It was a very fun time... as you can tell :) And the outfit ended up being perfect for the occasion ;)

It Was Just Too Ugly Not To Wear...

Hand-me downs are so fun, aren't they?
But sometimes you can be very unsure about what you are given. And honestly, I don't end wearing (liking) even half of what we are given.
But they are still fun ;)

This dress was given to us recently, among a few other dresses. When I first saw it I thought it looked horrendous... but it felt so soft!

Teasing mom, I held it up and said, "How do you like my new dress?"

She rolled her eyes.

So I teased further by putting the dress on.

And then I sort of fell in love with it.

And can you believe it... I started getting compliments on it... I even made some friends of a couple of older ladies when flying last month. 

People would say, "I love your dress."

I'd smile, looking down at the interesting print. "Thanks. I was unsure about it at first. But it was just too ugly not to wear."

For some odd reason that received quite a few laughs ;D ;b

I could see myself playing baseball in this dress ;)

Sister: Was that comfortable?
Me: Yes, why?
Sister: You looked comfortable.

Got to get a crazy picture... and the shadow of the dirt bike ;)

And another hand-me down I was unsure about at first... my shoes! I have fallen in love with them. They are so comfy and practical and match with lots.

And some fun pics my sister edited:

She does some weird stuff, but it actually turns out pretty good, I think :) It's fun anyways :D

Most of this outfit was given to me! What a deal ;) I think I may have bought my bracelets. 

And my hair was just a french braid that started up on my head, down around my face, and into my hair. Very simple and unique. :)

Do you like hand-me downs? Have you ever been unsure about clothes before then fell in love with them? Remember, if you ever see something and hate it - try, try it on first! Lol. Have a great weekend!!!!!!

Farm Meets Fashion

Every now and then I have to feature my photographer. Especially since it was her dress I used in my last post.

She is a bit more tom-boyish than me, but lately she has been getting into being more "girly" lol. All's good in it's own timing ;)

Anyways, the crazy farm life makes a great background for her gorgeous dress ;)

Are we done yet? I see a chicken that needs it's head removed. (She did NOT say this lol)

I like this one :)

Chickens be like: What are you doing?

The sun is a bit bright today :)

Outfit: I'm pretty sure all of it was thrifted - she may have got the necklace at a small antique store ;)

And a verse, for your enjoyment :)

(John 14:27) Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Have a great day!!! For life is pretty good, after all ;)

Fashion Post: Simple Yet Gorgeous Church Outfit

Ok... I am soooo sorry that I haven't posted in FOREVER.

I guess my excuse could be I was busy... lol, but aren't we all always? Haha. 

But the last couple weeks have been pretty exciting!!! I have my driver's license now (finally), got a new phone which will help make better pics for the blog, and I was baptized!!!!

Yes, these last coupld weeks have been VERY eventful ;)

Well, now that my excuse is over... I present to you a fun fashion post ;)

My siblings raise all sorts of birds(mostly chickens).

More of a really neat angle than fashion pic, but it is still pretty neat ;)

Sorry for the seemingly unenthusiastic smiles... it was sunny out ;)


Dress: Borrowed from sister. She got it from a thrift store.
Shirt: Thrift I think
Shoes: Yard sale. (These shoes are Earth Spirit and soooo comfortable!!!)
Necklace: Gift

Wow...this outfit was totally cheap (mostly free)! Yet.. so gorgeous. It just proves you don't need name brands or expensive price tags to dress up - where did those thoughts and mindsets originate from anyways???

As, for my hair, I did a small fish tale braid down the back and a couple small braids at the sides of my head. Fun, easy, quick, and textured :)

Have a great weekend ya'all!!!!!

And a picture of my baptism.. just too great to not share. I'll be doing a full blog post on this over at my blog this next Wednesday.

If I Were A Rock Star I Hope I'd Still Dress Like This ;b

Yes, I was just awful and didn't post on the fourth of July weekend.

And honestly I have no good excuse. I forgot to do the photo shoot and didn't feel like improviding when the time came for it.
And so I skipped. 

But, here I have another fun post - one featuring my guitar, which I'm trying ever so hard to be able to play beautifully. 
We'll see if that ever happens :)

Dancing with my shadow as...

...guitar magically plays itself. ;D

Even the animals love the soundless strings ;)

Sister Photographer says, "I have a great idea." I thought not. 

The dance continues.

And so does the music :D

My Outfit:

Skirt: Goodwill
Shirt: Hand-me-down
Vest: Same
Necklace: Made
Flip-flops: Wal-mart

And then I suppose I should show you all something of what I did 4th of July - getting to experiment with a friend's hair!!!!! 

How was your 4th of July? What's new that has been happening in your life?
