What She Wore// Street Style :: Guest


Hello readers!
I wanted to share with you this Street Style outfit worn by my very sweet friend, Gideon.

I thought her outfit was so stylish! The texture of the cardi and the mix of neutrals was really nice.
But she really doesn't like to be in front of the camera... I kinda had to force her to let me shoot her, but she's just so natural!

Isn't she beautiful? It was really fun to get her pics. It was like a little mini photoshoot, but on a whim!
The hat is actually mine, but I thought it matched perfectly, so I had Gideon wear it for the pics.


-What She Wore-

 Shirt- handmedown
Tank- Walmart $5
Cardi- Ross $12
Pants- from a friend
Boots- gift
Hat- borrowed


Isn't she just lovely?
Love,
Hagen

Resurrection Celebration

Happy (belated) Easter!
Our day was full of jubilation and remembrance of our Savior.
To start the day we attended a very nice church, the music was beautiful and the sermon, very thoughtful and had some very good points.

When we came home, we began our Seder Meal, something we do every year.
This year we had a delicious lamb roast. Mom cooked it perfectly!
I gotta be perfectly honest with you. I didn't do so well on capturing everything....
I got some pics of dessert though!

 Almond honey cakes.


 Fig bars.

And peanut butter chocolate cups!

It was a bit rainy and cold that day, but just being able to have this time to thank Jesus for taking our place on the cross and forgiving us our sins is so nice. 
I am nothing, but because of Him, I can be something. He is our Savior, our Strong Tower, and I am so thankful that He is in my life!

HE IS RISEN!

How was your Easter?
Love,
Hagen

I believe that Spring is finally here!
Today I'm sharing a very Spring-y outfit, worn by Layla.





















Cute,  Casual,  Comfy. The shirt adds color, while the boots add depth and the earrings add texture. Love it!

                                              The shirt was on sale, a kinda of surprise find...
The earrings she made herself which is always better and more personalized.
She also fixed her in a messy bun!

-What She Wore-
Shirt- Dollar General $5
Tank- Target $?
Pants- Walmart $12
Boots- Army Surplus $30
Earrings- homemade

I love the mix of color and neutral in this outfit.
What about you?
Happy Spring!
Love,

What She Wore// Katniss Cowl

Hey there!
I hope you are having a great Sunday, I know I am! The snow has finally melted here in the Ozarks. Here is an outfit I wore a few weeks ago when there was still snow on the ground...


 I have to admit, I love this outfit! It's comfortable, cozy and a little bit edgy. You see that cowl? Mom made it for my birthday from an old sweater. She's quit the seamstress! If you're a Hunger Games fan, you'll know that it's a Katniss cowl. It's so cozy and super warm. And not to mention, the color is awesome! 

 You should see the looks I get when I wear this outfit. Some people just stare, thinking,"What in the world is that girl wearing?". Others smile and nod because they know. Although not everyone may like it, I do and that's all that counts, right?

 Looking at this picture, all I can hear is Katy Perry's "Roar". 
In case you didn't already know, I'm crazy :)

-What She Wore-
striped shirt: gift
cowl: gift
jeans: Walmart $13
combat boots: Army Navy Surplus $30


What do you think?

Do you have a favorite outfit or item that may not necessarily be "in", but you still love it?
Don't worry about what others think, because the haters will just keep on hating!
With love,
Layla

Life// A Frozen Birthday

I realized that I still hadn't put up this post. So I scrambled to get it up.
 It is a very important post, I'd say.
   Olivia turned four last month. 
                   Her most favorite movie of all time is Frozen.

So we couldn't just throw her a birthday party. It had to be a Frozen birthday party.
                 So that is what we did...

Cake is the beginning to all birthdays. Lets start with that, shall we?
                         A delicious double layered vanilla cake with pink and blue piping accents...
                                                         Aaanndd, cupcakes!
We decorated with streamers and confetti, but sadly I did rather poorly of capturing them... 
We'll leave that bit out...
What's a Frozen birthday without some Frozen garb, right? Mom made her an Anna dress and cape and decided to give it to Olivia ahead of time so she could wear it during cake and such.
                      Isn't she adorable? What's more is that it was even snowing. Perfection!
Most of her gifts had something to do with, you guessed it, Frozen.
 Anna dress, Frozen glow in the dark wand, Frozen mittens, the Frozen movie.... She was ecstatic! There were also somethings not Frozen related (to balance it out a bit...).

        To conclude the day we sat around with bellies full of cake and ice cream watching Frozen.
I do believe this party was quite a success.
Love,
Hagen


Bonus pic! (Just to show her sassy side...)

What She Wore// The Sojourner

Hey There!
We hope you enjoyed our Thrift Haul Video! Here's an outfit Hagen put together using some of her new pieces...


 She calls it 'The Sojourner'. It's a comfy, yet durable outfit. With her Vans and backpack, she's ready for an adventure! I love the denim heart knee patch. It's actually covering up a rip from when I fell while skateboarding down a hill :) I guess you have to get creative with hand-me-downs!


 You might recognize this printed headband from the video. We forgot to mention that it was $1. Not bad for a cute accessory, eh? I fixed Hagen's hair in a quick and simple boho do.

 -What She Wore-
skinny jeans- hand-me-downs
top- thrifted $3
gray tank- from a friend
Vans- Shoe Carnival $45
backpack- Walmart $18
headband- thrifted $1


I think it's a pretty stinkin' cute outfit, what about you?
Love from,
Layla
