Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders (+ GIVEAWAY)

December 29, 2014

It is hard to believe the holiday Christmas is over with, however our celebration of Christ is not. How was your Christmas? I will be honest I had a lot of great moments with family, and I got a lot of needed things though, so that is nice. Visit my instagram here to see some of my favorite holiday moments.


Today’s outfit is just my favorite so far. I recently got this poncho from White Plum boutique with a gift card and did not pay shipping- so I got this baby for free. SCORE! (exact poncho for purchase here). I just LOVE the sweater feel of it, and the fact that it has sweater sleeves is an extra bonus so a long sleeve shirt to wear underneath is not required like most ponchos.



The leggings were a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law from Kohls and although they are nice they kept riding down, so I kept having to pull the leggings back up- very annoying!


I have seriously worn this poncho twice now, and I can’t wait to find other ways to style it in the near future.

Outfit details: Poncho (White Plum (exact here)//Necklace: Redeemed Jewelry (exact here)//Leggings: Kohls ($16.00, gift)//Boots: Belk ($90, got for $20)//Earrings: thrifted gift.

The necklace you see on me contains some of the lyrics to one of my favorite songs called Oceans by the worship band Hillsong. (If you haven’t heard this amazing song I have found the lyrics here for you to read).The necklace was part of a giveaway with Carrie and Sherri and the shop that makes the necklace is called Redeemed Jewelry. (shop exact one here). This shop sells cute necklaces with messages of hope, worship song lyrics, scripture and images. I am obsessed with how lovely it is, and it came with an arrow and anchor charm. I just love jewelry that involves a story behind it or a biblical truth such as this pendant here. When I wear this necklace (worn 3 times now) and feel discouraged I just look at it and am reminded to just trust God, with my feelings, day, situations and future.

What about you, do you have a favorite article of clothing or accessory that just speaks to you or reminds you of some dear things in life? Leave me a comment and let me know, I would love to hear about yours.

    Really like the poncho! Would like to have one myself. You make me want to spend money. 🙂 Better not tell my hubby that I’m following you. 🙂

  • Sherri December 29, 2014 at 11:16 pm

    Hi Rachel I’m so glad you are enjoying your necklace. I love the way you styled it! I think I need to get this necklace for myself. I like the look of the poncho with the cognac boots. I completely know what you mean about those leggings that ride down. So annoying! I hope you have a Happy New Year! ~Sherri

      The very best leggings I have found can be ordered from Nordstrom’s. They are Hue ultra wide waistband and come in 3 colors. The ratings are extremely high, and I’ve enjoyed mine. Worth the $32 I spent. No shipping charge. Check them out.

    Your poncho is adorable and I love that it has sleeves! I’ve never shopped at White Plum before and will need to check them out! So annoying about the leggings. My favorite leggings are Hue. They fit great and don’t stretch out.
