Hey, everybody!!  Here's what I wore earlier this summer on a very. hot. day.  Need I say, it doesn't take long for my hair to get very out of control in hot and humid weather!

White top: Aeropostale
Coral top: Express (thrift store)
Striped skirt: Amazon
Sandals: Department store




This outfit features my favorite color combo!
What is your favorite color combo?

Coral Lace Skirt

Hello, friends!! :) Here's another coral and black outfit I wore recently.  :)  This skirt is one of my favorites!
Drapey top: a hand-me-down from Mom :D
Black lace top: thrift store (50 cents!!)
Undershirt: department store
Skirt: Cato
I was also wearing black wedges from Shoe Department, but you can't see them very well, because the skirt is a little too big, so it was hanging lower than it was supposed to! LOL!
I also wore my hair up in a Hollywood Roll.  It didn't turn out perfectly because I did it myself (my mom is better!), and my hair was still partially wet.  I do love this hairstyle, though!

Have a good day, everyone!
Love,
Elyse

That's How You Forgive {Shane & Shane}


This is one of my favorite songs, written by Shane and Shane, from the album, Bring Your Nothing.  (You can listen to it here.)

That's How You Forgive

Gracious
Slow to anger
Abounding in love
Good to all
All who call upon You
You will rescue and forgive
This is why I live

You lived the life I could never live
You died the death, oh, that I deserve
You rose to life and now You live
That's how You

Forgive me in Your mercy
I'm unworthy of your love
And I'm running back to
All I have in You, my gracious King
This is why I sing

You lived the life I could never live
You died the death, oh, that I deserve
You rose to life and now You live
That's how You forgive

The measure of Your love
That You came and died for us
Let us not forget
That's how You forgive

You lived the life that I could never live
You died the death that I fully deserve
You rose to life and now I live, I live...
That's how You forgive

You lived the life I could never live
You died the death, oh, that I deserve
You rose to life and now You live
That's how You forgive

The measure of Your love
That You came and died for us
Let us not forget
That's how You forgive

You forgive
You forgive

Do you have a favorite song?

Red + White + Blue

Happy almost-Independence Day!!  I'm so glad my orthodontist suggested red, white, and blue rubber bands!  They are so festive!
Here's what I wore the other day in honor of the upcoming holiday!
Gray-blue Top: Thrift store
Skirt: Zulily 
Sandals: You can't see them much, but they're Montego Bay from my favorite local department store

And you can see the patriotic colors in my mouth a little bit here! :D

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

Life Lately

Hello again, friends!  Life has been soooo busy lately!  I got braces a couple months ago, and this picture captures my chocolate milkshake and I after a visit to the orthodontist! :)  Some of my visits have been very painful, but the milkshake really helps.
Our family got to go camping last month which was mostly a lot of fun, despite rain, and some bad sunburns!
The beautiful views were very much worth capturing on camera.
This boat dock is one of my favorite places-at evening, the sky and the water are absolutely gorgeous! And it's so incredibly peaceful! This was after our family took a raft out on the water-we made so many fun and hilarious memories!
Sometimes I feel like life just needs to slow down a little bit! With my sixteenth birthday approaching in just a few weeks, I'll be busy with party plans.  I'm holding off on getting my driver's license for awhile-I'm just going to work on practicing driving more with my learner's permit.  

What's been going on in your life lately?

Blessings to you all, and happy First of July!  
Love,
Elyse
