This is one of the comfiest outfits ever, which was perfect for our day of rehearsals in Peru.

It always makes me reaaaally excited when I have good deals to share! 😁

3 Things Every Girl Needs: Rainy Day Guide

Happy Friday! I'm back home in the sunshine of Texas, but not for long...I hear storm's-a-comin! It rained 99% of our time in the Big Apple. How's a girl supposed to dress in dreary weather like this?! Plus, doing lots of walking in the city, I knew I needed comfort shoes...not always the chic-est, right? (#thestruggleisreal 😏) Read on for my rainy day outfit guide!

RAINY DAY OUTFIT GUIDE:

1. Trench Coat

I don't know that I've ever owned a trench coat (ok, maybe back in 2002), but yes, they're back and YES, they're fashionable! When I looked at the forecast for NYC days before our trip, I didn't have time to go out shopping, but knew I needed something for our long walking days. Found this jacket and had it Amazon Primed (can "primed" be used as a verb? Apologies to the grammarians.), arriving just in time for our trip! This is an Asian line, so check out their size chart suggestions if you're making a purchase. (I'm wearing a large.)


Linking sale jackets here! >>


2. Hat

Ditch the good hair goals and roll with a hat! It wouldn't be your best hair day (sorry to break the bad news!), so you'll be glad you did. I've been looking for the perfect opportunity to pull out my gingham hat (if you missed the memo, gingham is EVERYWHERE and EVERYTHING right now -- now ya know!). The bow tie in the back is just too cute.


Linking a few other cute hats for your rainy day blues! >>


3. Rain Shoes

Every girl needs a cute pair of rain boots, right?! This is another item I've never invested in and I think many girls are in the same boat! They're not a necessity, so they can easily be overlooked. I found these super cute rain shoes disguised as sneakers, so I plan to wear them on "normal" days too. Love how versatile they are! Size up if you're a half-size. (I'm an 8.0-8.5 and I'm wearing a 9.0)

Kelly Savage | Senior Shoot

Meet Kelly. She's a no frills, no fuss kinda senior. The girl who maybe-possibly-probably-would-have-definitely-never gotten around to senior photos if it weren't for Mom's gentle nudge. :) But she got it knocked out: hair, eyebrows, nails, and glamour shots -- all before noontime. Now that's impressive. In the end, I think she surprised even herself with how much fun she had on our shoot! :) Mission accomplished.

A note from Kelly: "I had such a fun time with Jessica...she made it very relaxing and fun to take pictures that can usually be a stressful experience. Plus, she had an amazing eye for beautiful backgrounds. Thank you SO much, Jessica!"

Much love xo

Saturday Q&A

This Easter weekend is quite busy for my family and me, as my dad and I are both serving on the worship team at Gateway Church! One of our favorite places in the whole wide world. :) Our church is having 40 church services across 6 campuses in the DFW metroplex this weekend...can you believe that?! Amazing. I'm SO grateful to play a small part in sharing the Good News of our risen Savior.

Between the Easter festivities, I paused to answer a few shopping and beauty questions from today's look! See below and leave me a comment if you enjoyed this post or have other questions you'd like answered in future Q&A posts. :)


Q: Where did you shop for your outfit?

A:  One of my favorite online stores is ASOS. They have unique pieces I can't always find locally. You can purchase 3-day shipping for a whole year for $12...basically the girliest version of Amazon Prime out there. This longline polo pictured above is on sale for $25! Don't walk, RUN to ASOS to get it while it's good. My fringe earrings are from Anthropologie...find them by clicking HERE!

Shirt: ASOS Longline Polo (ON SALE FOR $25!); Earrings: Anthropologie


Q: What are you listening to?

A: My favorite right now is Hillsong Young and Free's Youth Revival record, but this song is my favorite...today. :)


Q: How did you do your hair?

A: This is my dressy go-to hair style because it's SO easy, but looks glammed up! I washed my hair yesterday (for those of you wondering how long its been :) After it dried, I put it in a high ponytail and curled the pony in 4-5 individual sections (using my faithful Conair styling wand), curling one small section of the ponytail at a time. I bobby-pinned the end of each curled section -- making a loose bun out of the pinned up pieces. I squirted some medium hold hairspray in and kept my hair up in the makeshift bun for about 4 hours (giving it time to bake). I pulled it down, ran my hands through it, recurled a crazy curl or two, and I wah-lah! Last night, I slept on it in a bun, taking it down today and doing the same thing -- shaking it out, recurled a few wild ones, and I was good to go for another day of curled hair! I don't like sticky, heavy hairspray -- I can make my washes last longer with this Kenra flexible hold hairspray (plus, I LOVE the smell) for any final touches.



Q: What lipstick do you have on?

A: I'm wearing  LOREAL Vagabond Mauve today, but I'll have to do a full makeup post soon, because  I've been finding so many wonderful beauty products lately! 


Happy Easter and much love xo

Hannah Gooden x Senior Photo Shoot

What a gorgeous senior to share! Spending a week last summer at Johnson Space Center, with her high school program "High School Aerospace Scholars," I'd say this girl's IQ is out of this world. ;) She's graduating in the spring and clearly off to great things. :)

Hannah wanted a few pics with her dog, Jingle, and I'm so glad she did. How cute?!

Much love xo
