I loved working with Dalton at Kingsley Plantation last week. He has such an easy-going, laid-back personality… and the prettiest blue eyes ever. :)
We don’t really go all out with Halloween decorations. Anderson didn’t celebrate the holiday as a kid, so it’s not a big deal to him. And I don’t really like orange and black together. But this year I got the idea to make “happy” Halloween decor using some of the bright colors that are always in our home. I want Kingston to think of it as a fun, silly holiday where we dress up in ridiculous costumes and eat lots of candy!
Now we just have to think of something cute for Kingston to be this year. How can we possibly top Baby Elvis?!?
One of the things I love about living in Jacksonville is the diversity of the city.
We spend a lot of time in the beaches area but can drive for just a few minutes and find ourselves in the downtown, urban heart of the city.
It’s the best of both worlds!
Last week we spent some time enjoying the beach, hanging with friends downtown, playing at parks, and of course eating. We’re always eating!
Last week I did a guest post for Kristal over at Sincerely Arizona, and today she’s returning the favor. Here’s her take on styling 1 dress 3 ways and transitioning from summer to fall…
I don’t know her that well but I do know that she truly is the definition of creative, she shines! One of my favorite posts of hers is actually a recent one, a little talk about balance. If you haven’t read it, you should. Not only is she beautiful, but she’s real and she talks about what all of us go through and all of us think!
Now, onto today’s post. Lyndsay and I thought it would be fun to share some fun outfits! We both live in HOT HOT HOT places. We are still in summerland while everyone else is cozying up in their sweaters, drinking hot cocoa and picking out their pumpkins! We styled one dress, 3 ways. Here’s a little transition post on how I wear one dress from summer to fall.
The real deal people. It’s hot in AZ and I try to dress cute but let me tell you sometimes there really isn’t room for layers so I use accessories.
It’s simple and it’s comfy for summer.

As we move on to cooler weather and tights come out, I love pairing them with a basic print dress and some wedges.
I found this vest at H&M and I just know it will be a staple for the months to come.

Last but not least, boots, a denim top and leggings are pretty much all I wear in the winter. Leggings can work with just about anything and you can pair almost any dress with them to keep warm. Tie on a denim top and you are good to go!

A little about me…I started my blog a little over a year ago. The main reason for it was just for me, for me to write and for me to remember. It was my little journal to myself. Over the past year my blog has grown and gosh so have I, a lot. I am so blessed and thankful for all the incredible things that have happened over the last year. I am especially glad that I had my blog to document my life and all the memories. I would love for you to come visit, come say hi – I would love to have you!
Isn’t she cute?!? I LOVE that last look! Head over to Kristal’s blog and leave her some love.
You don’t want to miss this post. It’s one of my favorites on her site!
Sometimes I meet up with a family for the first time, and there’s just something about them. A light.
This family had that “something.” I loved spending a Sunday evening with them. They were real. And it was refreshing!
I’ve started typing about them several times, but I keep deleting everything. So instead of my words, I’ll leave you with this:

and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27
