double the fun: outfit post + sponsor love!!

tee: gift from mom / vest: forever21 / beret: forever21 / jeans: aeropostle 
ring: my shop / watch: fossil / boots: madison

we were experiencing such warm weather that the rain and drop in temperatures was a little bit of a shock. yesterday was one of those days that i would have loved to have been lazy. maybe stay in PJs, wrap myself in a blanket and read me some hunger games while drinking a cup of hot chocolate. but it was a good thing that i wasn't lazy. orders have started to come in for the new year so i started sewing again...and it felt really good. i didn't realize how much i'd missed poking my finger sewing.

but enough about me. i want to introduce you to some of my newest sponsors! and such a lovely group, are they not? click on their banners to visit their shop so you can see their goodies for yourself.



i've been a fan of rhianne's blog for a long time - and if you visit it, you'll see why. this girl travels to so many amazing places and has the opportunity to capture so many memories with her unique cameras and talented eye. you'll swoon over her collection of cameras! and her shop is an extension of this girl's creativity. i have a handful of faves from it but i'm especially loving the diana postcards!


is her shop name not the cutest?! and who doesn't love rosettes?! Cole's beautiful shop is stocked full of wreathes, headbands and center pieces to decorate yourself and your home with these beautiful rosettes! i've also followed Cole's blog for a long time - a place i go for wonderful music picks and inspiring updates! her family is so precious, too. go see for yourself!



anyone who knows me, know i love pops of color! laura's sweet shop blossoms with colorful peonies and mum's and lots of other fun jewelry. so many of her pieces are perfect for the new year as you update your wardrobe for spring! also be sure to check out her sweet blog, filled with lovely tutorials, outfit posts and faith-inspired posts! i love the verse in her banner - one of my faves!


so embroidery has never been one of my strengths but i have always admired (and drooled) over anyone who can work its magic! rachel can definitely work it's magic! i'm in LOVE with pretty much every single hoop scene in this shop. visit the shop and see for yourself! and don't forget to check out her sweet blog! through it you can get to know her and beautiful family. it also includes some shop updates so it's a must follow if you are in love with incredible creations! 


so now go show each of these shops some love!
[happy thursday, friend.]
