Every Closet Has A Silver Lining















and this gorgeous white johnny was embroidered skirt pb + j boutique sent is most certainly mines. all those days ive stared blankly at rows of filled hangers only to come to the conclusion that i have absolutely nothing at all to wear, all those nights ive shimmied into countless outfits only to come up short (and with a piled mess of tossed pieces to pick up). all of the times ive felt buyers remorse or worse, ive found the garment of my dreams only to find the store is sold out in my size. this skirt, with its soft sheer fabric, lace detail, and peekaboo cut out is everything i want to wear, the end to all of the bad that comes with being a girl just trying to get dressed. so, needless to say, i needed to find something equally perfect to pair it with. a seemingly impossible task until i came across this black and white v neck polka dot top at target. my eyes were sold and my money was in the cash register the second i saw it. and my darling black ankle strapped pointed toe low heels were a no brainer. 

but what makes this look truly special is the jewelry. i dont know if youve heard of isanctuary but im happy to introduce you to this stunning line and sincerely encourage you to "purchase with purpose." every piece is handmade by survivors of human trafficking, providing them with an opportunity to reintegrate into society. it truly touched my heart to see the names of the brave and talented women who created mine etched into the pretty packaging. wearing these makes me feel fearless and immediately inspired because i know im supporting such an important cause. host your own trunk show. throw an awareness party, or just simply head over to their site to add to your jewelry collection here.

there's just so much pain and suffering sprinkled within the smiles and sunshine, sometimes its so overwhelming trying to sift through it all and so heartbreaking to stay informed but feel helpless to stop any of it. thats why its so crucial to be aware of and thankful for the luck, love and little things in our lives. not to mention, that one skirt that makes you feel as if youve finally conquered your closet.

CHERISHED COMMENTER OF THE WEEK
Fizz


fizz is a favorite of mine, shes been leaving sweet words and so much support from the start and i feel so fulfilled after reading what shes written me because i can tell she actually pays attention to my posts not just the pretty pictures. speaking of, it does not get more stunning than this girl and her show stopper style. i am constantly turning to her site for inspiration she knows just the prints to pair together, just when to keep it simple, just whats needed to kick it up a notch, and has a shoe collection to envy. i am such a fan of her trendy, timeless, head-turning looks and thank my lucky stars whenever one of mine earns her stamp of approval.

  2. If I have this skirt it would be mine too! Looks so crisp and pretty.. makes the wearer feel feminine. It is easy to be ungrateful to life.. I always tell my boys who would say their friends have better this or that to not compare themselves but if they cannot help it, compare to those who has less than them, that's when they'll see how lucky they are. Life is good to me, I couldn't ask for more :) Have a great week and drop by my page sometime and say hi!

  17. Black and withe colors separation is very nice and attractive. Specially the hat gives an extra effect to the look.

  18. I contacted the designers before i ordered my dress to see if I could get the dress really quick. They did have the dress I wanted and within 5 days of ordering my dress it was at my front door!
