STYLE STORY: JEWEL MIX


Jewel tones put a smile on my face. Perhaps its their bold colors and the way they pop out of a crowd.

I especially love to wear them during fall and winter seasons as most transition to outfits of darker neutrals. In the shorter days and overall decreased sun sightings, it's fun to throw color out in the world with a colorful look.

This beautiful bold floral dress paired perfectly with a gorgeous jewel tone jacket. I styled the look with over the knee (OTK) boots and loved how it completed the look. This was the first time I styled OTK boots which was scary! Mainly because I had no idea how it would look on me.

I've learned a couple tips or tricks about styling OTK boots that I'd love to share with you:
1. Pair them with dresses that have a more conservative neckline to balance out the look. 
2. Make sure the gap between the top of the boots and the hemline of your dress or skirt is less than 5 inches.

Do you have any other tips for wearing OTK boots?

STYLE STORY: PLEATS


I love a pretty pleated skirt especially with the Spring season around the corner. It seems pleats are everywhere and have remained in fashion for years. My very first style blog post was of a pleated dress. And that was years ago before I started Grace in Style. There's something beautiful about the pleating process, especially when you consider the work it must take. I was looking up how to describe pleating and it brought to mind thoughts that have been on my mind lately.

Pleat: To gather.

Gathering in community is a beautiful social act because of its importance. This is something I've been learning over the years. As someone who loves to do everything on my own and prove that I can be self-sufficient, it's humbling. 

When I've allowed others to help me, or have helped others, it's amazing how our combined gifts can produce so much more than we imagined. 

I'm so thankful for these lessons learned and for my community for reminding me that we cannot do this alone and aren't meant to walk life alone. One of my favorite bible verses is a reminder of this truth:

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another." 
- Hebrews 10:24-25

So here's to encouraging one another daily to do good and love well!

SPRING SWEATER


As Spring continues to tempt us with a few days of beautiful weather in the midst of cold and stormy days, it’s often difficult to figure out what to wear each day. I found this lightweight sweater from She In with a beautiful illusion floral neckline. 

It’s not only versatile for the weather, but also for dressing up or down. Plus, it can be easily layered with a button up top underneath or a coat to wear over it.


I styled it here for a casual weekend look during my weekend getaway to Atlanta! They have incredible wall art everywhere! It was overwhelming in a good way and makes me excited to see art displayed prominently in a city. Have you been? What's your favorite city to visit? Tell me in the comments below! I love exploring new cities!
