Blessed

Why do such great weekends have to come to an end? Don’t get me wrong, I love the start of a new week, but the weekends are always just the icing on the cake. We got to hang with new and old friends and we had some chilly weather! Yay! We saw the movie Gone Girl on Saturday, and you guys… you have to see it! It is absolute craziness! I could tell you all what happens, but I’ll spare you the longest blog post ever and just say go see it! Now! Sundays are always my favorite. We have church, which was really good! One of the quotes that stood out to me was, ” When the things you want become less important than what God wants, then you lose the boredom.” It’s so true. I’m not perfect whatsoever, and I struggle daily, but that quote is the perfect explanation of life. We stray away from what God wants for us and we get bored. I know his plan for me is way better than any plan I could make for myself.

“The voice whose power created all things from nothing? That is the voice who speaks into my heart and makes it new.” – She Reads Truth

With all that said, I am blessed beyond measure and so are you. :)

So about the outfit, I wore this yesterday and I am in love with this blouse. The peter plan collar and polka dots give it sweet girlie touches. I have been really into high waisted jeans lately so I loved the top tucked it. It gives off a retro-vibe and accentuates curves that are sometimes hidden.

Hope you all have a great week!
I had someone ask me to do a post about my hair, so please comment below if you have any questions about it and I’ll post it this week! :)

Shake It Off

I have wanted some sort of pastel hair for the longest time, from a pretty bird’s-egg-blue to a cotton candy pink. I was destined to have it at least once in my life. I love color, from my bright pom poms I adorn my clothes with to the bright lab lights in our bedroom. Color is everywhere in my life. My eyes get all heart shaped and I drool a little over a perfect display of colors.

I had finally chosen my hair color. Lavender. I knew it would be my shade and would be the perfect color to dress with. For a few months I knew I was going to do it and I kept it to myself this time just in case I would chicken out. I already told Bobby ’cause he is always the most supportive. Sometimes being yourself is hard, and letting others get to you is not fun. I am the worlds worst when it comes to this. I let what people think of me bother me way more than it should. I tip my hat to those ladies that are super confident in being you and not giving a darn what people say. Ever since I got my hair done I’ve loved it. Bobby loved it, my friends loved it, most of my family loved it, and even random strangers. Then there are those people who just don’t get it or think “you are super weird”, or “why purple?”, or “you are so brave” while they look at you with wide eyes. It’s strange, but ever since coloring my color I have had this crazy confidence going on. It’s awesome. I mean don’t get me wrong, I did get a little hurt by some people, but at the end of the day it’s all about what you love. Yes, there are people out there who still don’t like it and never will, and thats okay. Like my girl, Taylor said, ” You gotta shake it off.”  Life is too short not to have fun hair. I thought this tee was the perfect choice for this post. The image of the lip biting the bullet is just pure genius. Take that chance, be you, and be happy with who you are! Do that one thing that you’ve always wanted to do and trust me you will be glad you did, because now I found this new piece of me that was always hidden and I’m living my life to the fullest. No more “one day”, your one day is today! :)

Fall Days

We had the best weather a few weeks ago. The highs were in the 60′s and the low was 48. It was the perfect time for bonfires and sweaters. Of course after just two days of that amazingness we were hit with the high 80′s and 90′s. The one thing I wish I could change about Georgia is the awful humidity and the fall weather we never really get to have. As soon as I hear that cooler weather is hitting I naturally start unpacking all my fall/winter goodies and put away all the summer clothes. It’s so fun to find pieces you forgot you had and put together new outfits. I have had this top for a while now and I have styled it multiple ways on the blog. It is such a classic piece to have and I knew it would be perfect with this antique looking necklace from Riffraff. I recently picked up this fall hat (bring out the felt hats!), another reason I love cooler weather, that would help complete my look. Crossing my fingers that some more cool weather will surprise us and stay for good! Hope you all are having a great week and that you are getting some yummy fall weather as well! :)

26

Yesterday was my 26th birthday and I had the best weekend celebrating it with friends and family. Friday night started it off with me and some of my friends going out for pizza. They all wore colored wigs to match my new lavender do. It was so much fun! I’m so happy I have friends like them! :)
Saturday was spent in Atlanta with Bobby. We found cool murals to take photos in front of, got to eat Shake Shack for lunch (eek! Ever since I had it in NY I’ve craved it. So happy they opened one in Buckhead.), did a little shopping, and got my sugar fix from the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM. It was seriously the best day ever!
Sunday was my actual birthday and me and my mom went to church with my grandparents. I’m so happy I have such a great relationship with them. I wish I could see them everyday. One of my Nana’s friends made me this amazing cake covered in icing. I don’t think I could have asked for a better birthday weekend.
26, I think me and you are going to get along just fine.

Plaid

It’s that time of year again when you start bringing out all your plaid! I love a good plaid pattern. It just screams fall & winter! When Riffraff posted this vest in their new arrivals I knew I had to have it! I love that it isn’t too puffy and thick so I can wear it now with a tee underneath and then layer it up for the colder months. October is this week! Eek! Only the best month ever! So excited! :) Hope you all have a great week!

Graphic Tee Tuesday : Midnight Snack Maniac

Hey y’all! So sorry for the lack of posts around here lately. Things have been crazy busy around the McCullough household. Bobby has been in and out of town working on different projects, so I haven’t had my wonderful photographer here to document my outfits. The weather is starting to cool down and things seem to be calming down for a little bit, so I’ll have more posts from here on out! :)

I had never heard of Wildfox until Riffraff started selling some of their pieces. I’ve become a huge fan of their vintage styled tees! I thought this one was pretty perfect with my lifestyle. I am the biggest candy lover/snack eater ever! I love a good ice cream before bed or at midnight. There’s just nothing better than a midnight snack! What is your favorite?

You know what goes perfect with a midnight snack? A good cuddle buddy! Beasley insisted on being in these photos. She is such a natural in front of the camera, and well she’s my little sidekick. She has to be wherever I am all the time. :)

Hope your Tuesday is marvelous!

Graphic Tee Tuesday: Homeward Bound

Hello! Hello!
Welcome to my new series, Graphic Tee Tuesday! I have a huge obsession with graphic tees and I thought it would be fun to start styling some of my favorites and showcasing a few of the businesses that make them. I’m sure all of you have seen Homeward Bound. It’s the tale of 3 pets (2 dogs and a cat) who escape from a ranch to find their owners who are in San Francisco. It’s an oldie, but a goodie. I always tear up at the end. ;) I came across Passive Juice Motel through Pinterest and knew I had to add this shirt to my ever-so-growing grey tee collection and of course my graphic tees. They added the hit song by Drake, which makes so much sense and amazingness. Everything about this shirt makes me happy – the movie, the song lyric, and the color! :)

Happy Tuesday!

Falling

Congrats, Tiffany, you won the fruit stationary! Whoo! Look out for an email soon! :)

How in the world is it September already?! This year has flown by. Once September comes, everyone gets in pumpkin mode and the ladies start pulling out their booties. It’s definitely my favorite time of year.

You may have seen this dress floating around Pinterest a couple months back. I got super lucky and snagged it before they were all gone. I’m going to be one of those girls and say it’s probably one of my favorite dresses I own. No surprise really,  I mean look at it. It’s the right amount flowy, the embroidery is so dreamy, and such a great transitional piece for fall. I wore it while we were in New York and got so many compliments. Someone asked if it was a vintage piece from Mexico. I’m telling you gals, Asos is where it’s at. I hope you all have a great weekend. Looking forward to sharing a new series with you next week!

A verse that has been on my heart and mind :

“Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord; His going out is sure as the dawn; He will come to us the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.”
Hosea 6:3
