Fashion Friday, Sunny Scarves and Floral Dresses

Here it is! The long-in-coming Fashion Friday! I had come down with a stomach bug the Thursday before my sceduled outfit post. Thus, no post cause of a very sick Kora.
This is one of my very favorite dresses! I purchased it at a thrift store for dirt cheap and it is soooo comfy. I drove eight hours to Missouri in it for my best friend's wedding. Over all, I'm in love with this dress.

 A close up of the dress details.

 Some of my favorite boots!

Of course, Sylvester had to have his picture taken too. He would not stop rubbing against my leg and meowing. He just wanted some lovin'!
Dress, Thrifted. Scarf, Crocheted by Me. Shoes, Rue21. Pearl Earrings (the ones you can't see), Dollar Jewelry Store.
Photo credit goes to my little brother, Clayton. He did a great job and is turning into quite the photographer!
Hope you all enjoy the first of many Fashion Friday posts! Enjoy your weekend!

Music Monday, She is Love by Parachute

This song has always made my heart flutter. If I ever get married, I'm sure I will use it somewhere in the festivities. And I've gotta say, the guys in Parachute are cuties! Do you have any songs that strike a chord with your heart? Hope you have a great week!

Music Monday, Red House by Andrew Mill

Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce you to Andrew Mill. He's from Scotland (complete with thick accent!) and I had the pleasure of meeting him when he came to play at Sips on Saturday night. This song isn't one he's written but you can check out his other songs on youtube! I wanted to upload one of the others titled, "Just a Boy" but youtube was throwing a temper tantrum. I was able to talk to him after he had gotten done playing on Saturday and he was very down to earth. He even seriously invited me to go on tour with him. "There's a few seats left in the van. Just quit your job and come on the tour with us. It'll be a blast!" (Although this was a very neat and exciting idea, I decided it'd be best to stay in Oklahoma..for now. Haha!)  Jesse, Mary, and I were going up to Norman after the show to see my cousins play. I told him about it and he was planning on coming too after packing up but they ended up having to travel on. There are plans for a next time though :). Hope you all enjoy his music as much as I did/do!

Confession Time

     Okay I decided it's confession time so here it goes.. Remember several posts back when I said I was going to start doing outfit posts? I haven't done those yet if you can't tell and here's why *deep breath*, it's because I'm super self conscious. I know it's just something girls struggle with but by golly, I REALLY do! I'm not where I need to be in-shape wise nor where I want to be. I've hesitated doing outfit posts because I really don't like how I look. I'm striving to get where I want to be by exercising and eating healthier. I'm tired of changing my outfit a MILLION times before I head out the door! Arg!! No more hesitating on the outfit posts. I'm starting them this week and maybe this will give me an extra boost. Any encouragement and prayers you want to throw my way will be so appreciated! I've got the clothes, I just need to start doing the posts! Fashion Friday y'all. It's happening this weekend. I'm trying to bulk up on my blogging skills and posts so this will help tons. Thank you to those of you reading and following! You are keeping my blogging dream alive and blossoming.

Music Monday, The Power of Love by Gabrielle Aplin

I was browsing on youtube last week and came across this artist and song. I love her voice! I had not heard of Gabrielle Aplin before but now I'm hooked. Enjoy! Oh, and happy April! (Is it REALLY April??)
