Hi my loves…it’s been a bit quiet over here in the past two months, right? I feel a bit guilty for not posting nearly as much as I used to, but life has been getting in the way. I struggled a bit with the whole work-life balance thing and so much has changed in both aspects. It’s never been easy to juggle and even harder with a brand new job and some recent life changes. I’m still in Higher Education but I’m in a position in student affairs that I’ve prayed for. And when God blessed me with it, I felt I had to spend some time diving in and learning the position. I no longer work crazy hours or travel weekly for work and I cannot be more thankful to be home with my husband and dog every day! That may not seem like much to some, but when you’re away for 10 weeks out of the year, it becomes even more valuable.
Anywho, enough of my rambling! I can honestly say I have a real handle on things now and they say you make time to do what you want, so I’m BACK! Did you all miss me? I missed you! I missed sharing style and music posts, and chatting with you all in the comments and on social media. The blogging community is such an inspiring and fun group to be part of and I’m happy to be back with new ideas, new content, a new posting schedule, which I’ll share with you later on this week and so much MORE! Thank you all for being so patient with me these past few weeks and a special thank you to those who emailed me or messaged to check on me and let me know they missed reading my posts. <3
Now let’s get into this look: I always love a vintage blazer in the Fall/Winter. It’s the perfect structural piece to make an alright outfit, FABULOUS! The neutral colors on this vintage blazer goes complements everything! You know I couldn’t just wear a blazer and crisp button up, I had to also add a statement necklace and faux fur stole, because why not? I have a pretty impressive collection of vintage blazers and I’m challenging myself to wear them in new and creative ways this Winter For an outfit this easy, why not add a little extra? It’s like ordering a hot chocolate and saying no to the whip cream, who does that?!
Now let’s get into this jewelry! My friends from Color by Amber were kind enough to send me a few pieces from their line because they know I’m a jewelry lover. But this isn’t just any jewelry line! is NOT just jewelry… It is a way to give back, do good, and literally change the world. The “ecoresin” that their jewelry is made out of is crafted out of 40% recycled material – making it a sustainable source of style!
Their interlayers come from all over the world. Some are just beautiful, high-end fabrics, and others are recycled materials – like old blue jeans or up cycled coffee bags. But my favorites are always from our “Full Circle” collection…
Full Circle is their platform for helping women Artisans around the world. They work with Artisans who live in remote villages in places like Ndem, Nepal, and Mexico. They use sustainable resources and ancient techniques to hand-craft interlayers such as monastery fray paper from Nepal, serape weaves from Mexico, and organically grown cotton in Ndem.
