This is my favorite black cardigan! It has adorable details like the little bows at the waist and a fun little collar. I wore it pretty simply to head to the diner with Sean's family the other night. I wanted my tidal wave (as my students call it) of hair to be the focal point.
I haven't had any time to take photos in the past two weeks so I am hoping I get to take some this weekend. Until then, have a great day all!

Today I am spotlighting a fabulous dress website- Aviva Dress! Aviva Dress is a UK based company specializing in gorgeous special occasion dresses. They have everything one would need for an event including prom, homecoming, and wedding attire.
Although I have already been through all of the major events in my life, I still enjoyed looking through the selection of diverse dresses Aviva Dress has to offer. There are long and short prom dresses, evening and cocktail dresses, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses, mother of the bride/groom dresses, and they all come in a wide selection of shapes and sizes.
Here are a few of my favorite picks from their website!
(Keep in mind the dresses I chose are geared to my own personal style, they offer many strapless, satin, ball gowns, etc. as well!)
Not only does Aviva Dress carry hundreds of dress styles, but they also offer a selection of jewelry and accessories (like petticoats, veils, gloves, etc.) for your special occasions as well. I am a pearls girl, so I fell in love with these two sets in particular. The one on the left is something I would have loved to wear with my own wedding dress!
The best thing about this company are the prices. I remember my gracious mother paying hundreds of dollars for my prom and wedding dresses, but at Aviva Dress I found evening dresses for as low as $63, and wedding dresses for as low as 80 dollars. For those of us who have a small budget to work with, I know how important it is to find a beautiful dress without paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars to do so! And if we're going with this wedding theme, don't neglect the bridesmaid dress selection with a huge range of color options sure to fit your event in a price that won't make your friends loathe you for choosing it.
Fast shipping time takes the stress off those who have a short amount of time to work with. Wedding dresses process within 12-15 days, and ship in 3-5 days, and the number is even less for other special occasion dresses.
Lastly, and probably most importantly, Aviva Dress offers the option to custom order your dress to fit your own measurements. Nearly every individual I know has had to have their fancy dresses altered to fit them, sometimes at a very costly price. Aviva Dress offers this option for just $10, asking for a bust, waist, hip, and length measurement. This way you can be sure that you beautiful dress will fit, even though you are ordering online.
The reviews on the website speak to the incredible quality and fit that Aviva Dress boasts. Thank you for reading a bit about this company, and if you have any occasions coming up make sure to take a look at their website!

A quick post from a couple of Sundays ago! I pulled out my 'new' 1940's winter coat even though it wasn't quite cold enough for it yet. I love it though, in all of its humongous glory.
This is going to be a tough week with me working around 50 hours between three different jobs (after this week I will only have TWO jobs, so that's better). Husband has been sick for a week already with a horrible cold, and I'm trying not to get it myself. Trying to stay positive this week! :)
I found this golf sweater at a flea market a couple of months ago. I had to have it-it was so quirky! I believe the words are names of golf courses where tournaments took place, possibly for a college league? I don't golf, but if I ever do I am wearing this cardigan.
My beautiful sister was here to visit!
Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one whos me.

Today's remix showcases these wonderful vintage jeans I thrifted a couple of years ago. They are my favorite pair of jeans and I still haven't found another pair to rival their timeless look. Do you have some pieces in your closet that you adore, but you don't want to wear them too much because you're afraid of the day they will wear out because they are one of a kind? Yep, the struggle with wearing vintage!

Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
