I scored this cool 70s style shirt at a downtown secondhand shop and I'm 99% sure that it's handmade and one-of-a-kind. #winning

I don't find myself wearing much color during the fall...or summer...or spring...definitely not winter. Ok, so I never find myself wearing much color, but when I do decide to wear color, I go bold. I like mixing and matching bold colors in unexpected ways, like rust and teal.

There's something about a bomb.com statement piece that I get so darn excited about. It brings any outfit to life whether it's a simple, chic look or an already-out-there-but-why-not-add-more vibe. You like that, huh? This necklace will not disappoint! It'll appear in my next outfit post too (shhh)!

Hey guys! If you're like me, you love to see what other ladies consider their "go-to" products to be during different seasons. I just think it's so interesting to see what others use and enjoy and why. Sometimes, I discover new products that end up making my list of essentials! Speaking of my list, here it is...

I feel like May went by pretty slow. This might be because I'm waiting on August to roll around, but you know it is what it is. Nonetheless, I've had a few favorites this month in the fashion and beauty department and I'm here to share...

One of my favorite things to wear in the summer months is a kimono. I love the airy fabric and the way they drape on the body. I just feel like it screams bohemian summer flower child and I love it! Here's one of my favorites...

Emily, from The Sweetest Thing, is to blame for my current obsession with statement earrings. Until recently, I was strictly a stud earring type of girl. Don't get me wrong, I owned and loved the look of statement earrings, but I never reached for them until now. Here are some of my favorites in my collection...

Ya'll...I've been gone for SO long!:( I've got so many reasons why I haven't been blogging, but to keep things short, let's just use the good ole "life gets crazy sometimes" excuse. I'll be posting sporadically for a while, but something is better than nothing, right? So, here's what I wore for Easter...

Happy Monday, guys!
I had a hectic weekend to say the least, but I can't say I hate being busy.
Part of my hectic weekend included a beautiful bridal shower for my friend. Here's what I wore...

First topic of discussion: I've been neglecting The Life of a Lady this week. I'm sorry! I've been overwhelmed with other projects and haven't been able to get photos for my usual posts done so rather than delivering sub par content, I skipped it altogether. Don't hate me! I'm hoping to be back on track next week!
Next topic of discussion: It's FRIDAY! And that means I'm talking about a few of my favorite things this week, so here it goes...

I've had trouble with my skin for years. Tiny bumps all over my face that would take forever to go away only to be replaced by new ones. I tried everything from Proactive to prescription medications to get my skin to a level that I'm comfortable with, but nothing worked. I would stress out about my skin issues which would result in more skin issues and the cycle would continue. I've finally found the products that have been life-changers and I'm ready to share them with you.

My mom liked this dress so much, she "just had to borrow it" immediately after this shoot. It's in her possession now along with a few other things from my wardrobe, as usual. No worries, Mom, I got you.

I have a slight obsession with coffee table books, you guys.
I don't know what it is, but I think they're fun and beautiful and I love using them to decorate my apartment. It's a great way to express my interests. I flip through them when I have nothing to do and ideas start flowing. Here are the ones currently making an appearance on my coffee table.

The last few years of my life have been nothing short of a roller coaster ride. I've struggled with things that I've never thought I'd have to deal with. I've managed to lay a path down for the career that I will, hopefully, pursue full time in the future. I've done my best to face the obstacles that life has thrown my way head on and find ways to build myself up and create a stronger foundation for my life and the people in it. I cannot say that things are ever going to be easy once I make it through this extremely difficult time in my life, but I can say that the Lord will continue to stand with me and strengthen me for whatever new battles I may encounter. My hope is that anyone reading this and struggling with their own hardships finds their inner strength just as I have and knows that no matter what, you will get through it. There will be a time when you look back on this journey and realize that you are a stronger, more well-rounded, self-assured individual than you were before the storm hit you. When the waters calm and the sun comes out, you will be a better person for all you've been through, and you'll have the scars to prove it. God does not give us anything we cannot handle. We are soldiers. Every one of us.

Layering is a must when it comes to Southern winters. The morning starts out freezing, but as the day goes on, it gets warmer and warmer. Rather than completely changing my outfit by lunchtime, I tend to go for layers. Lots of them in the morning, and fewer and fewer as the day goes on.

Guess who's baaackkkk! It's Taryn! And she's wearing an outfit that I love! I wore this to work one day in November or December, posted it on Instagram, and vowed that it would appear on my blog in the future...so, here it is!

I've got three very random favorite things for you this week. Two of which involve lots of laziness, but we all have those weeks, right?
Let's get on with it...

I'm not afraid to admit that I am a Netflix junkie. And I like those suck you in and never let you go till you've watched all 132 episodes types. I'm not the cool documentary girl or the interesting independent film girl. I like those just fine, but I'm the completely unrealistic high school drama girl. The yeah right, that would never happen emergency room miracle girl. The no crime goes unsolved girl. That's the good stuff right there. Here are my top five TV shows on Netflix...at least for now...

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Today, I'm showing you this sassy look I styled and photographed on model, Taryn Schexnayder. I've been itching to share these fun photos on the blog and the time is now!
