Gathering Blue

July 8, 2015


I'm guilty. I raided Mom's closet. I must say, occasionally borrowing pieces from a family member's wardrobe can be great fun! This is a blouse that my mom has had for probably close to 20 years. Does it not look like it was just snagged off a rack at H&M yesterday?

I am so excited to be featuring a skirt from Honey Bliss Clothing! If you love dainty, feminine, girly pieces, you'll die over this Etsy shop! There's ice cream, floral prints and gingham galore. The craftsmanship on this skirt is impeccable - the structure is absolutely stunning. On a more random note, Honey Bliss also has a radio website, which features a compilation of all sorts of lovely indie music. You can fuel your summer playlist here.

How stunning is this necklace from Happiness Boutique? Lately I've been a sucker for a good statement necklace, which is why I'm crazy about this boutique! What's more, they are quite reasonably priced, and shipping is free so if you've been wanting to find just the right bauble for your next Summer soiree, definitely stop by and take a look. Plus, they have a fabulous rewards program where you can win some great stuff while you shop!

I really love your passion for fashion. Your blog really encourages me to dress modestly and strive to become a woman of Christ. In today's world, young ladies such as myself are constantly bombarded by how we should dress and look like to be accepted by the society. We really need more lovely, amazing people like you to step up and lead the next generation. :)

Also, I absolutely admire your skill in matching tops, bottoms, and accessories so perfectly! Keep doing what you're already so amazing at!!

First off I have to say: Holy Smokes girl, your new blog design is top-notch! The bees knees! The cat's meow! Seriously, well done my dear :D I watched your youtube video on it yesterday, and new that I had to take a peek mid-video. ;)

Fabulous outfit! I love the print of the skirt, and you paired it so well with all the other more neutral pieces in your outfit. So classy!

This is a beautiful ensemble. I love the lighting in all the pictures, and I'm just crazy about those shoes. What brand are they? You know all of us are like, "Bummer," when it says, "Thrifted"! :)

@~Natasha Thank you so much, Lovely! So encouraging to know that my blog inspires you to dress modestly <3 I feel you, it really is a constant battle, but it's definitely one worth fighting. Modesty is such a symbol of valuing our relationship with Christ, as well as our self worth!

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
