Hey girls! Wow, it feels like Christmas and New Years was an age ago, and yet here we are only 4 days into 2017. Last year was one for the books for sure, and I know that this one will be as well with all the plans and changes that we girls have for this fresh new year. I feel like the latter half of 2016 was an era of rediscovery for me: after many months in early 2016 of searching for my identity in new people, adventures, and clothing styles, I feel like I have finally come home to who I am inside and out, and am learning contentment as I continue my journey of life as a young woman of the Lord.

I have always thought the “lumber jack” look was a pretty handsome one, for both guys and gals. When I saw this tunic hanging up in a local boutique, I knew it was my chance to finally try out the style for myself. Although it does have its origins in the masculine sphere of fashion, I find that it can be very tastefully transitioned for the feminine side if you have the right cut and accessories to dress it up. Sturdy tall boots, sparkly but simple earrings, and a cute braided hairstyle all complement and elevate this style very well.
In all of this “identity discovery” that I have been going through, I have sort of let myself go in the fashion department, not allowing any certain keyword or category determine my style. Although those can be helpful in establishing what you like and don’t like, I find it far more liberating to go with what you feel most comfortable in, and rock the socks off it. So whether that be a vintage-inspired dress with a modern statement necklace and booties, or skinny jeans, tall boots, and a “lumber jack” shirt; if I feel at home in the outfit, I know that it is “my style”.
Oh man, these boots still have my heart. I’ve been wearing them almost non-stop all season, and they only get better with age. Real leather FTW!
