Happy Wednesday Loves!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week. The start to my week was a bit rocky, but as the week has progressed, things have become more settled.
For those of you that know me well, you might know that I attend Flatirons Church. My favorite thing about Flatirons is the environment – all are loved and welcome. My second favorite aspect is that, without fail, there is always something to take away from the sermon and immediately apply to daily life. This Sunday was no different. Over and over again, Jim urged us to focus on loving our neighbor and giving people what they NEED, not what they DESERVE. Powerful, right? In a world with so much hurt, ugliness and devastation, it is easy for me to focus on justice and retribution. But instead, our hearts should be focused on loving people where they are at and giving others what they need right there in that moment. I’ve definitely been thinking about ways to apply this in my own little world. It’s amazing how quickly this mindset has softened me and inspired me to love others in a new way. It has also helped me recognize and appreciate how many amazing people I have in my own life that are loving me right where I am at. I am so grateful for my sweet friends and family that support and love me through it all. (If you want to watch the sermon, click here. It is titled “The Road to Jericho.”)
My sweet friend Audrey took these pictures. I love how she captured the contrast of the beautiful Colorado landscape and this amazing red dress. I (obviously) cannot get enough of this off the shoulder look! The fall fashion looks dominating Instagram right now, have me CLINGING to summer. Don’t get me wrong – I’ll eventually get excited about boots and sweaters, but for now, I’m soaking up all of the sunshine and warm temps. I’ve linked several of my favorite red off the shoulder dresses below. I adore the one with the pompoms!
One of my favorite things about this outfit is these earrings from Bauble Bar. They are stunning, versatile and add a glamorous detail to the right outfit. Here are my other current cravings from Bauble Bar: Geode Drops & Flo Drops.
