My Favorite Bohemian Look For Summer

1024 683 Melissa Mayer

I am feeling all of the boho, 70’s inspired vibes this summer. Aztec prints, flowy styles, relaxed vibes, and beachy hair are all calling my name. I absolutely love this outfit for all of it’s bohemian influences, flower child character, and laid-back charm. Not to mention, it is so comfortable, but still looks chic and put-together…my favorite formula! Being uncomfortable is seriously never worth it…who agrees!?

This dress is the brand Farm Rio- the exact one isn’t online (that I can find!) but here is the link to their line at Anthropologie and Farm Rio’s own website. This circle bag is the perfect addition of leather to this look…it’s the Union bag from Hobo and adds a dose of 70’s cool for all the throwback vibes. When it comes to jewelry, I love chokers and cool bracelets, plus ear cuffs and statement rings. The summer collection from Pandora right now is on-point! I love everything, and the pieces I am wearing are just the right amount of accessories to finish off my favorite bohemian look for summer.

A Medicine Hat

683 1024 Lauren Kennedy

I have come to realize that you are either a hat person or you are not. Do you guys agree? Ever since I was a little girl, I immediately felt and still feel in my element wearing one. A hat makes me feel put together and creative simultaneously, and to get a little deeper, you know when you put a note on your mirror to remind yourself of a positive perspective or an encouraging word? Putting something on my head personally takes on this same role. It reminds me to have intention about my thoughts throughout the entire day. I am obsessed with the Lauren hat made by the lovely Water & Bird. I was so humbled when she named the medicine hat after me to represent gratitude + the act of transforming fear and trauma into growth and healing.

 


Oh, and P.S! Hats add so much  ease to a day! It eliminates the need for a good dry shampoo or a hair wash and style. Some days, we just need a break, right? Talk about a win win…you look polished + it acts as a time saver.

We would love to hear from you below! Yay or nay to hats? xo

Hey guys! It’s that time of year where we are transitioning our closets over to spring/summer, donating/consigning things that we no longer wear, and making lists of a few new things that could be added to our wardrobes for a little freshness as we welcome the new season. Shopbop is having a great sale (20% off all orders and 25% off $500+ orders), so if you are planning a shopping spree, Shopbop is the place to do it. Below are some of my favorites for a casual spring wardrobe- a striped tee that I love, an oversized denim jacket, a linen baseball cap and more. Share your favorite links from this sale in the comments section! P.S. the code to use is EVENT18 when you checkout. xo

The Delight Of Discipleship

1024 682 Melissa Mayer

The act of discipleship truly is a beautiful, powerful, incredible thing. Sometimes easier said than done though, as discipleship can seem daunting and intimidating, but this is not how the Lord wants us to view discipleship! Instead, let’s think of discipleship as it is: a true delight to spread His love and grace with those around us. It really is a lovely, delightful, Spirit-led journey that does not need to be intimidating at all!

Matthew 5:14-16 reads: “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (NIV)

As the Bible says, we are to “let our light shine before others”. This alone is a huge part of discipleship and lays the groundwork for inviting others to experience that light which comes from God and God alone. Our “light” is really not our light…it is His light shining through us as believers in Jesus.

Living lives that glorify God and allow for His spirit to permeate in us and through us is the beginning of the beautiful, obedient act of discipleship. Just as a smile is contagious, so is a God-centered way of living. Letting His light shine through us on a daily basis with people can ultimately lead to wonderful conversations and serve as a gateway into bringing people to Him in His time. Of course discipleship takes time, patience, endurance and this is just the start, but it is such a necessary, important, and delightful start!

We would love to hear your thoughts on discipleship in the comments section below. Also, if you don’t follow them already on Instagram, IF:Gathering is an incredible group on a mission to inspire and equip women to share the gospel with other women in their lives so they can live life with Jesus.

All The Feels: Lou & Grey

1024 682 Lauren Kennedy

You know when there is a store that you actually enjoy visiting? Where easy online shopping just doesn’t seem as wonderful? It’s rare, but Lou & Grey is that clothing store for me, and I am so thrilled to be partnering with them. It gives me #allthefeels 🙂 Living in Los Angeles, I remember how excited I was when the Pasadena location opened because I could physically walk in the store, touch the classic pieces, and be inspired! It is on a street in the most charming, family-filled town, and it always feels like the most lovely shopping experience.

I recently went in the store on the rainiest day (extra cozy feels) and found the best fitting skinny denim, a linen tee I couldn’t resist,  and a terry oversized sweatshirt that I wish I could wear every day. The staff is always so sweet and helpful, which always makes me love a brand even more. Not to mention, I am a sucker for sweatpants, and their’s are the softest on planet earth. And let’s talk accessories – hoop earrings and hair pins for the win.
