When The Most Beautiful Sunsets Inspire Fashion

Hello! Ready or not, life is in full swing with house projects, both planned and unexpected, mom life, settling into a new church, Friday night football games with our 16 year old and homeschooling! However, in the midst of hectic adult life, I eagerly anticipate the most breathtaking sunsets I've ever seen.

Locals proudly concur with the simple statement, "The west coast of Florida has the best sunsets". 

On this particular sunset, the colors from the sky cast a pink haze that made me feel as if I were apart of the heavens myself. Simply breathtaking and inspiring.

So in spite of the humidity, the nighty rain showers that will last through September, the unfortunate, record breaking epidemic of red tide and the unusually long traffic lights, I'm learning to love this pocket of Florida. And dare I say, a love for bright colors and the mix thereof?

Valiant Poppy Red, One of Fall/Winter's Pantone Colors for 2018!

The sunset inspired handbag was begging to be used with this red dress! The multi-color gem pulled the turquoise and natural colors in the shoes, necklace and bracelet together perfectly. I shopped my closet entirely for this look, as house purchases trump the clothing budget right now! However, I look forward to sharing a few new shirts from my recent visit with Mom Rowden, as well as a quick Costco grab that may have appeared in my cart, along with the groceries! That's coming up soon!

What inspires your outfits lately?? I love hearing from you!


"O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens...When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory honor." Psalm 8:1, 3-5
