Finding Beauty In The Gray

Winter in Michigan can be so gray and depressing sometimes. Once all of the twinkly lights from Christmas have been taken down and put away, we are left with gray days that seem to go on forever. In my community group bible study we are going through Looking For Lovely by Annie Downs, which talks a lot about finding the beauty in every day. It can help us persevere through challenging seasons and gives us hope for brighter days ahead. So that’s what I’m doing to help me get through these gray days of winter, even if it’s something as simple as enjoying my morning cup of coffee, reading a good book or putting on a pretty floral dress. Even on the hardest days there is always something beautiful if you look for it and it will help give you the courage to keep pressing on.

I was planning to post another outfit today, but when I realized that I was going to be posting this on Halloween I decided to put together a more festive look. While it doesn’t scream Halloween, this plaid peplum blouse from Avenle gives the subtle nod I was looking for. I just love the warm fall colors and it is so comfortable! The fabric is soft and stretchy without looking sloppy and the peplum adds just the right amount of femininity. If you’ve read my blog in the past, you know how much I love Avenle. Andrea, the owner of this adorable online boutique, always curates the most amazing pieces! You can see their fall collection here.

By the way, has anyone noticed that I have worn jeans in two blog posts now? Who am I?! In the past I have primarily worn dresses/skirts, but lately I find myself more drawn to styling looks around jeans/pants. One of the many reasons I love having this blog is to be able to look back and see how my style has changed. Although I don’t think it has been a huge change, it’s fun to see how it has evolved and Im sure will continue to evolve.

I hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween! Don’t eat too much candy. ;)

Truly,

Tamara
