FASHION & COMPASSION GIVEAWAY


To celebrate this upcoming Mother's Day, I am teaming up with 10 other amazing women to give away $150 to one of our favorite stores, Fashion & Compassion!! We thought it'd be fun to also share stories about the influential women in our lives and how they have molded us to be the strong, confident & compassionate women we are today.

I love Fashion & Compassion because of their heart for women overcoming poverty and injustice in our own neighborhoods and around the world. Fashion & Compassion aims to connect caring consumers with vulnerable female artisans to bring dignity through economic opportunity and beauty through the lovely creations these women produce. Most importantly, F&C aims to give hope to women who are trying to build a life after serious hardships – from poverty to sex-trafficking. 

So, how do you enter this giveaway to win $150 to spend on this adorable Beauty & Dignity tote and beautiful wrap bracelet (pictured below) and so much more from Fashion & Compassion? Head over to Instagram tonight at 7PM CST and find the Giveaway image to enter! The giveaway is open until this Thursday, April 21st at 7PM! Good luck!! :)


My mother is too amazing for words to capture. Without her constant support & faith in my talents and gifts, I would not be where I am today. Through her love for God, I have learned what unconditional love is. Despite those angsty teenage years, she continues to love me and show me God's grace. Over the year, I have fought my own demons that tell me, "You are not enough." But my mom always helped me rid of those thoughts by reminding me, "you are enough!" God created me in His beautiful image, and in Him, I am enough! 

My mom is also my number one prayer warrior. Every day, multiple times a day, she lifts me up in prayer when she spends her one-on-one time with our Heavenly Father. To illustrate her amazingness, she has a prayer folder at her desk that is worn & bent from daily use as she kneels on it to pray for her family and friends. I know that God is always watching over me because her prayers cover my daily needs and those challenging times. 

I love my mom more than words can convey or music can express. I hope to be at least a fraction of the mom that you are one day! Thanks mom for showing me how to wear grace & style it with love!

Now, it's your turn! Who is the most influential woman in your life? It may not be your mom, it could be a best friend, mentor, teacher, etc. I can't wait to read your stories!

STYLE STORY: FLORAL EDGE


Springtime may or may not be here. Dearest Chicago, please make up your mind! But this is why I love this simple transitional outfit from winter into Spring!

I'll admit I'm a huge fan of the jegging. (Can I get an amen?) They're the only pants that will ever fit my seemingly unique bottom half. Seriously, how do people find jeans that fit them perfectly? That has never happened to me! But I do love being unique, so I'm going to keep calm and wear my jeggings.

I paired my favorite pleather jeggings with a chambray shirt. Simple and easily recreatable with items from your own closet! To add some pizzazz to the outfit, I topped the look off with this floral moto jacket! I got the jacket for a steal a couple years ago, and I'm planning to put it to use for years to come.

Here's a tip for purchasing statement pieces that will get multiple years of wear: Make sure the item is a classic style such as this moto jacket with a print that's bold but timeless like this floral print. What are your thoughts on investing in statement pieces?

While this look is pretty simple, you can take it from casual day wear to a night on the town with your girlfriends. All you need to do is simply add a statement piece like this jacket! You can try a big colorful scarf, bold statement necklace, a brightly colored trench coat, etc. But if you want something similar to this jacket, there are great options below under "Shop My Look"!

GIVE WITH GRACE: ELEGANTEES


HI FRIENDS!!

Wow, two months have flown by. While it's been quiet here, my life has been the opposite. Work and catching my patients' viral syndromes have been draining my energy and time. But I promise that I've also been working hard on Grace in Style! There is so much goodness coming your way. I'm so excited to share a few new collaborations with you guys, plus my brand new site is under construction! While most collaborations are still under wraps, I'm excited to share Elegantees with you today!

Elegantees is working to bring hope to women in Nepal who have been rescued from sex trafficking. This brand restores freedom into the lives of these women by giving them jobs to sew beautiful elegant tees! With a job, these women can have financial independence and confidence.

Each year, over 20,000 women and children are rescued from sex trafficking in Nepal alone! There is so much need in this country! Restoration is one way to help bring an end to sex trafficking.

So would you consider joining me to bring hope and restoration to these women? As William Wilberforce so truthfully wrote, "You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know."

Plus, you can get 15% OFF any purchase with code "graceinstyle"!

In these photos, I'm wearing my favorite Rebecca peplum top. It's so comfy, but can be dressed up or down.

STYLE STORY: SUNNY CALI


I'm taking us back a few months in memory lane to bring us to warmer times. In LA to be specific.

Some of you may be escaping to warmer climates this winter. But since many of us don't have that luxury because of work, school or just not having the resources, maybe I can bring warm thoughts. There's not much more I'd rather do than soak up the glorious sun for some vitamin D, which is what basically happened when I got the chance to visit my friends in California.

Skirt: Piperlime {Similar Floral Skirts}
Heels: Vincci {Similar Bow Heels}
Necklace: Kate Spade {Similar Kate Spade Necklaces}
