Are we noticing a trend lately with Jessica? 

Maybe she's a little over obsessed with the ruffles......just a tad ;)

All week I have been living in my workout gear (what else is new), rocking the messy hair, and barely there makeup. It felt so refreshing the other day to finally wash my hair, throw on makeup, and get dressed up for the day. This month I am so excited to be working on a project with Amanda Uprichard for a post that will go live in a few weeks. You guys are going to love it!

One of the pieces that Amanda Uprichard sent me was this dress. Umm hello.... obsessed right?! Swing dresses are such a hit and miss for me because of my petite body. Dresses like this can easily go from beautiful on the hanger to a disaster once I put it on because the fabric would overwhelm my body. When I tried this dress on for the first time I was immediately in heaven. Since the dress isn't form fitting I decided to pair it with a pointy toe heel to give my body some length. For accessories I kept it minimal with a nude clutch, and delicate necklaces to keep the focus on the dress.

I can't even tell you how much I am in love with this outfit!!! I have become totally on board with the ruffle trend, and now my closet is filled with ruffles. Insert 10 million heart eye emojis here! Just saying...... be prepared to see LOTS of ruffles and bell sleeves over the next few weeks ;)

With ruffles and bell sleeves hitting hard for spring its only appropriate to mix a new trend with an old trend, white denim. I loved adding the pop of pink with the bag to give a neutral outfit some fun pop of color! 

Since white denim is such a classic trend I'm excited to see what new inspiration you ladies have for me :)

Meet My Cohost
Apparently I am not the only one loving the ruffle sleeves since our gorgeous cohost Rachael from Threads for Thomas is rocking the same trend as me! Rachel is a fashion blogger from Boston MA, and this blogger isn't afraid of trends. What I love most about her blog is that she doesn't fear prints, and embraces bold patterns in her posts. Make sure you check out this blogger today I guarantee that you won't regret it ;)
Featured Bloggers of the Week
Even though Glass of Glam didn't feature a midi skirt, I fell in love with this midi dress she featured. That color! That fit! Superb!! I love how she paired this marigold dress with a dusty rose jacket. Gorg!

How could I not feature The Em Alexander?! Look at this outfit! Stunning! The pleats mixed with the lace called my name, and I had to feature her!

Invest

While I consider myself to be a fun loving, carefree, and charistmatic girl, I still have a deep side to me. One of my biggest weaknesses and strengths when it comes to my personality is that I invest so much of myself into others. Recently there has been a situation in my life where I was dumped by another for reasons that I wasn't given 100% clarity for. For days I would cry to Todd asking him why this seems to be a pattern this year, and that this scares me for building relationships in Dallas. 

It wasn't until I hit my adulthood that I've learned that some people are willing to just drop a relationship vs take the time to work through the issues or problems formed. Why is that? Are we so busy in our lives that it's easier to just drop things entirely vs take the time to work through situations? Are we so set on looking at the situation from one point of view, and not even consider that there's two sides to a coin? 

For days and days I would analyze where I went wrong which made me sink into a place where I was constantly blaming myself again. Allowing myself to sink vs swim is a place that is hard for me to climb out of, and just gets worse with time. Luckily I have been blessed with new and old friends that have been here for me. I cannot even explain how lucky and blessed I feel to be surrounded by a support system that makes me feel loved and supported. 

Rant over. In other news the winner of the Shein gift card is .....

Congrats to Simply Nancy Blog for winning!!!
