Bright lips provided by Dior, Rose Harpers. Big blessings provided by the Lord above. For the past few weeks I have been telling my husband we need to have the brakes checked on our car. Especially since it is our only source of transportation right now. We took it in late last week, and come to find out we have been driving a death trap. The brake booster was bad and needed to be replaced immediately. Imagine my unemployed husband's anxiety waiting to find out how much this was going to cost. Would you believe that we are still under warranty, and that it even covered our rental car? It's true, and that's exactly how this little problem was resolved. Once again, during this trial we were reminded of how God provides. So grateful.

|Amazing Chalk Walk Art Festival, Clearwater Beach|
Add my husband's company car for the past 18 years to the list of items I took for granted.
The kids had a day off on Friday. So that, coupled with some Marriott Rewards points was all the excuse we needed to blow this popsicle stand. The only thing I didn't escape was this dress. Four more days to go!

There was a teeny tiny chill in the air today-so this called for tights. I paired my plumb tights with my blue suede shoes and threw on a statement necklace. I love that my dress has pockets, have I gone the entire month without mentioning this? As tired as I am of this dress, the pocket factor may just encourage me to wear it again in the future. Maybe I won't set fire to it after all. Ha!

For those of you who have to work with a tripod, you will understand my frustration this afternoon. The clouds, the angle, my hair, the way this shirt was falling on me, etc. I couldn't get a good picture to save my life. I am convinced my neighbors think I am either nuts, or completely vain standing outside taking photos of myself all of the time. This was the best I could do today, my one pic wonder.

Much like layering this dress, I feel like life is coming at me in the form of layers lately. As soon as I take a layer off and feel like I can breathe, it's time for another layer (or struggle) to be thrown over my shoulders.
Life, much like this dress, can be suffocating at times. There are twists, turns, miscommunications, uncomfortableness, and hurt. But in all of it, I stand here in my layers knowing that it is all going to be good in the end.
Isaiah 26:3-You keep completely safe the people who maintain their faith, for they trust in you.

Although I am thankful for this dress and this project, I am ready to see the end of October. I felt so much better when I ran into a fellow dress project participant and friend this morning at church. The first words out of her mouth were, "I'm over this dress!" I laughed and was so relieved to hear I wasn't alone. We laughed about washing it at random and weird times, and I told her my story of wanting to set mine on fire. It's moments like these that put a smile on my face and will keep me wearing the dress, for 11 more days.

My husband pointed out that my blog posts have been rather short lately. I think that is due to my missing sanity. The days keep running together, and I have nothing inspiring to say. Friday my son had an allergic reaction to his antibiotic, he is covered head to toe in hives! Last night we got zero sleep trying to keep him comfortable. I am hoping for a better night tonight, and something inspiring to say soon. Until then; this dress is keeping me posting, even if the content is not great. I am thankful for this project, 12 days to go.

Today I have my shine on. You know what they say, don't ever let anyone dull your sparkle! I had the pleasure of presenting to a group of youth pastors today, promoting Culture Rock. This event empowers teens and connects them with their parents. With recent bullying events in our community making national news, there is no better time than the present to be in support of an event like this. It's not about being perfect, but being prepared. I am so excited about how God is going to unite us to make an impact.
Matthew 5:16-"Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven."

This scarf was NOT the perfect pick today. It was itchy, and hot. But I picked the perfect time to run the lake, conveniently meeting up with a friend halfway. She's much faster than me and pushed me harder than I would have pushed myself, thanks A! My family and I also picked the perfect pumpkin together today. I love sharing holiday traditions with them. Although I gag on scary decor, I love a good pumpkin and I am a sucker for a great stem. As you can see, this one is perfect.

Let's be honest, some days you just have to fake it until you make it. Whether it is styling a dress for 31 days, or slapping on a smile when you feel like crying. Today I did both. Cheers to small victories. Oh, and today marks the halfway point-15 days to go.

Lately, in effort to combat worry, I have been doing my best to focus on the beauty of little things. Today, I found beauty in my booties. It may not be cool enough to layer this dress, but I can bust out my booties.
Focusing on the positive has really helped me. I still worry, lash out, or feel irritated at times. But reminding myself of all of the good that is surrounding me whips my thoughts right back on track. I have so much to be thankful for.....and theses booties were made for walkin', so that's just what I'll do!

Today the dress is undercover. It's under the cover of a skirt. I repurposed this skirt a while back by ripping out the tan lining, and I love to wear it over leggings. Today, it worked great to turn my short gray dress in to a long dress. It's still too warm here to layer much on top, so I thought I'd layer on the bottom. Creativity would come so much easier with some cooler temps. This happens every year, #floridaproblems.
