I’m so excited to finally share a project that I have been working on with my dear friend Heather! Heather and I met when we worked together at a hair salon almost thirteen years ago and we have been close friends ever since. Not only is she a great friend, she is also one of the most talented people I know. She makes beautiful beaded jewelry and over the years has sold it to friends, family and even clients at the salon we worked at. For years I have tried to get her to sell her jewelry online, but with a full time job she was just too busy to do all that was necessary to run an online shop. It just seemed like a shame that she was not sharing her talent for others to enjoy, so a few months ago I came to her with a business proposal. I would take care of the business side of things like photographing, listing, shipping, etc. and she could focus on the creative side. Around the same time, I started this blog and thought it just made sense to put the two together. That is when we opened our Etsy shop and Moxie Boutique was born. You will be seeing a lot of her lovely jewelry, along with some super cute vintage-inspired hair accessories made by her mom Beverly, styled here on my blog. I’m so excited to share all of the gorgeous pieces that she has made! In celebration of our shop opening we will be doing a giveaway here on Truly, Tamara in the next few weeks, so be on the lookout for it! Also follow Moxie Boutique on Instagram and Facebook so that you don’t miss new items being added to the shop, sales, or future giveaways. Any support you can give would mean the world to us and we are so excited to share Moxie Boutique with you! :)

This “skirt” is actually one of my Dear Creatures dresses from their fall line last year. Since it was a little chilly outside on the day we took these photos, I decided to dress it down and make it a little more weather appropriate with a chambray shirt layered over it and combat boots. I love the mix of dressier, more feminine pieces with edgier, more masculine pieces. This is a very lovely dress on it’s own, so I promise to style it again so that you can see the whole dress and it’s cute little bow next time.

Truly,

Tamara

I love the simplicity of this chambray dress I bought from Target a few years ago. There are endless ways you could style it, but for this look I decided to keep it simple. Most of the time when I’m putting an outfit together I plan the accessories around the clothes, but not this time. My dear talented friend Heather made this beautiful necklace and earrings, and I really wanted to wear something that would show them off and allow them to shine. The strapless neckline and light chambray color of this dress did just that. Aren’t they lovely?

I have had a very busy week and am definitely ready for the weekend. I’m hoping to get out and have a little fun! Whether you are relaxing or on the go, I hope you have a great one! :)

Truly,

Tamara
