Today is an exciting day friends! It is launch day for Noonday Collection’s winter line and I’m so happy to be able to finally share it with you! All of these beautiful cozy knit pieces are made out of soft alpaca blend yarns by our artisan partners in Peru. For centuries alpaca wool has been used to keep the Peruvian people warm and that tradition is being brought to you in these gorgeous handmade knits that will be sure to keep you warm and cozy all winter long. My absolute favorite piece from this line is this beautiful Sageflower Shawl! I love this sage green that we seem to be seeing everywhere right now, it is a really neutral color that will go with so much this season. I am one of those girls who is always cold, so I know this piece will be a wardrobe staple during our ridiculously long Michigan winter. At least I can be warm and look cute at the same time! ;)

There are so many other cute things and this year they have added some Christmas items, including a set of adorable ornaments that have been hand-stitched in countries around the world! I don’t know about you, but I love having ornaments on my Christmas tree that I know helped to create dignified jobs in vulnerable communities. Loving others just as Jesus loves us, isn’t that the whole point of this upcoming holiday season? All of these items really are the gifts that keep on giving. Some of my other favorites pieces are pictured below, including that gorgeous leather crossbody bag! You can shop the entire Winter line here.

Truly,

Tamara

Hello friends, it’s been awhile! I initially took a break from blogging last summer because we had put our house up for sale and were super busy dealing with everything that comes along with that, but for many reasons it turned out to be a really hard summer for me and I just never started up again. I’ve changed a lot since then and have been feeling called to start blogging again. One of the biggest changes has been my renewed relationship and faith in God. It has completely reshaped who I am and how I approach life now. I grew up in a Christian home, but in my late teens I strayed from my faith and tried to forge my own path. That didn’t go so well! For years as I struggled to control my life, I felt hopeless. God had a plan though (as He always does), and when I reached my breaking point I found my way back Home. One day I’ll share my whole story, but for today I’ll just explain how this big change in my life has slightly shifted the focus of the blog. Truly, Tamara will always be about fashion and personal style, I now understand that it’s a passion God has given me to help women feel good in their own skin and to love the body He has given them. I love styling and encouraging women to step out of their comfort zones and try something new. It’s amazing how clothes can transform your mood and make you feel beautiful inside and out. It’s something I’m still trying to figure out too, but it will be fun to do it together.

I had been looking for a way to combine my love of fashion, while giving back and making a difference in the world, when I first heard about Noonday Collection. After hearing an interview with the founder, Jessica Honegger, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for and became an independant ambassador. Noonday Collection partners with talented artisan entrepreneurs to make a difference in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. By developing artisan businesses through fair trade, they empower them to grow sustainably and to create dignified jobs for people who need them. I’m sure you will be seeing a lot of Noonday Collection popping up around here and I’m so excited to style outfits around all of the beautiful handmade pieces. I’m so proud to be a part of a company that’s building a flourishing world where children are cherished, women are empowered, people have jobs and we are connected. Email me me if you are interested in finding out more about this amazing company or if you are interested in partnering with me by hosting a trunk show!

Another thing I am so passionate about is empowering women and supporting them through small business. It makes me so happy to see other women taking chances and following their dreams! I hope that by partnering with small businesses through this blog, I can be a small part of helping them succeed and grow. One of my favorite local Michigan boutiques that I recently stumbled upon is Dallas & Dottie Boutique. The owner, Lindsay, is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met and she does such an amazing job curating a beautiful collection of clothing and accessories. When I saw this beautiful fall floral tunic dress I just knew I had to have it! It is totally on trend in this seasons petrol blue color and I just love it’s comfortable flowy fit. I’m so happy to support Lindsay and watch Dallas & Dottie Boutique continue to soar. Make sure you check out Dallas & Dottie on Facebook and Instagram too!

I have so much more to share in the coming weeks, but for now I’m just happy to be back. Happy Monday and I hope you have a lovely week!

Truly,

Tamara
