Lessons from my Poshmark fall wardrobe

Listening now…

I have been through some life changes since my last blog post… more to come on that later. I will have a lot more time to blog (at least for now) and plan on getting back into the weekly blog swing of things. 

It’s fall!

My absolute favorite time of the year to blog about all things fashion related. 

Whether it’s a Fall Fashion Inspiration post, a Spooky shoot, I really love doing these. 

This time I thought I would do something a little different. 

While going through my photo shoot photos from the other night, I realized that our clothes can kind of….teach us something. 

 

We wear what we feel and we wear our hearts on our sleeves. 

 

In the mornings, we go through our closets and carefully choose how we want to portray to others that day, we wear Black to certain occasions, our friend tells us “wow, you have a lot of Black clothes!” while going through your closet-while you may have never noticed before. 

We speak as silently, or as loudly, as we want to the world with what we clothe our bodies with. 

 

Here are some lessons from my Poshmark fall wardrobe, which you can find here:

 

Be as humbly yourself as possible, but with attitude.

 

 

It’s perfectly okay to be quiet- if that’s who you are (me.) 

But never, ever, ever let people tell you who you should be, walk all over you, treat you less than you deserve. 

Remain yourself, but know when to step outside of this comfort zone when it comes to protecting your own values. 

Damn straight.

 

Keep it simple.

 

 

This means taking time to sit with yourself and learn patience through your process. 

Wake up in the morning, wipe the sleepy from your eyes and look up at the sun and how it has risen for you ; the way in which it has blessed and given you another minute, another hour, another day. 

For a minute quickly becomes days and months and years and if we don’t take the time to sit with it, really notice it and breathe it in, it will evaporate right before us.

 

And on it goes…keep it simple.

Daydream as often as you like.

Play dress up with your life and try on as many varieties as you like.

Our choices were not meant to be taken so seriously… 

Do your very best and the universe will send rewards and gratification your way.

 

It’s okay to dress like Fiona and Frank from Shameless.

In fact, I encourage it.

Life lately…

Listening now…

Hey everyone! Are there any blog readers still out there? ….Hello?

This was a very unintentional and way too long blog break but I’m happy to be back! Life lately has pretty much hit me and made me as surprised as Molly is in this picture.

It’s been a busy summer with fun adventures involved. Here’s just some photos of a few things we have been doing.

 

 

 

The summer has been awesome & I hope you all are having a great one, too! We know it flies by and by the time we know it, it’s time for Halloween decorations and fall movies… which I am already excited for!!!

 

But the real reason I have been insanely busy is because I landed a new job!

I now work for Found My Animal

 

Our Mission

 

” Found My Animal promotes animal adoption in a very direct way: let your pet wear your values. By encouraging rescue over purchase, we support animal welfare by asking pets and their owners to help deliver our simple, important message. “

The owner’s adopted own- Claude & Henry.

If you have been reading for awhile, you may know that this is something I have wanted to do for a long time. Wanting to work for an animal rescue organization or company is a very specific goal and when I had actually started to think it was not going to happen for me, I saw this job and decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did.

To work for a company like this is a dream! Part of my job is also community outreach- which will involve spreading the word about our company and even holding adoption events with dogs!

In addition to that, if you are interested in learning more about Found My Animal or even carrying us in your store, contact me! We love collaborating with new businesses and like-minded individuals supporting our mission.

 

 

The girls are definitely enjoying their Prismatic Ombre Adjustable leash

And they love being able to walk side by side!It has really helped Molly’s anxiety to go new places with Daisy walking on the leash next to her.

And Molly feels amazing supporting a leash that supports rescuing animals, just like she was rescued almost a year ago by us. ❤

The day we found our animal. And she found us. #onherwayhome ❤

An excerpt from my blog post about Molly’s #foundmyanimal story…
We know she was left outside all day in the hot Tennessee weather.
We know that a woman had her and gave her up because she did not have patience with housebreaking her. Because you know, dogs take work and patience. But the love they give you back is ten fold and oh so worth it…
We know she is afraid of crates and wary of men coming near her but don’t know why.
We know she was afraid of water beating down of her because we (and her foster mom) suspect she may have been from a puppy mill.
We know that she is home now and we will never make her feel that way again.

300 followers and weekend dreams

Listening now…

 

(This song is in a car commercial and every time I see it I wanna dance and last night, when I could not sleep a wink,I had the beat in my head…so it had to go on the blog. #obsessed.)

 

We have reached 300 followers on this little up and coming blog!

 

 

This is a tiny update because honestly… I picked up a new project, as I usually do, and life has been busier.  I’ll talk more about it later because I wanted to do a whole post on that! But basically I am always hustling towards my goals and can’t stop, won’t stop. ok.png

I’ve been struggling with balance again. What is it with October, my favorite month, and feeling a sense of struggling to balance it all?

It’s getting dark early again and that’s been hard for me. I know that’s part of it because I feel this tiredness I haven’t felt in awhile, an effect of doing so much, and also- it’s dark by 6:30 pm…it makes me just want to crawl into bed…. z emoji.jpg

And I have started trying new exercise classes- 2 weeks ago Piyo, last week Zumba (which I have done before but picked back up after awhile) and this week Spin (I’m sore) and those have left me a little…tired, as well. With everything else. Why do I always decide to pick up a million new things at once?! Lol.

Piyo made me feel nauseas and like I was going to die, all at the same time. Spin, on the other hand, I loved and hope to make a weekly thing!

 

Anyway… when life gets a little bit harder, I try to go back to the little things, so here’s some pictures from my beautiful weekend…

I have to digress for a minute and talk about Greig Farm in Red Hook, NY.

This place has everything you could ever need. Apple and pumpkin picking, delicious bbq food in this adorable air stream trailer,  pygmy goats, and an indoor farmer’s market!!

I am getting hungry again just thinking about all of the yummy food we had.

We got these smokey deviled eggs and this brisket sandwich, both were amazing. The drink,too!
