Summer Crochet + God’s Awesome Story

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! I want to take a few moments to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday this week. I am now twenty-three years old, and feel as if I’m on the starting line of some awesome changes and life adventures.

I always thought that being a teenager was supposed to be the best part of life. Even with the freedom and naivety of adolescence, I still think that the wisdom and relationship I have with Jesus now has opened the door to even more freedom.

Don’t get me wrong–I’m still far from having everything figured out. But I know deep inside that I’ll never have it all figured out. Only God can see the whole picture of our lives.

The worship pastor at my church gave me some really good advice this week. He told me to keep seeking and praising God and live without fear of the future. If we keep chasing after God, then when we look back at our lives, all of the things in life that don’t make sense right now will come together to create an awesome story.

I know that my story is just beginning, and I’m excited to see what God has in store for my future.

In the meantime…let’s talk fashion! I don’t think there’s a better summer staple when it comes to fabrics than crochet. It’s light and airy, yet still textured enough to make a statement. I’m a decent knitter, but I can’t wrap my head around how people can loop yarn into these beautiful designs and patterns with their hooks.

Crochet is everywhere this season, bordering the hems of blouses or showing up on bags and sandals. You can wear it as a pop of color, or in the traditional summer white. Don’t be afraid to mix things up and wear crochet patterns that are in the form of flowers or other girly designs. I also think a crochet cardigan makes the perfect summer cover-up to any dress or swimsuit. Crochet is definitely a trend you can experiment with in a playful, yet classy way.

for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. (Philippians 2:13 NIV)

Outfit Inspiration: Crochet Details

Happy Monday! Okay, I know that most of us dread Mondays, but right now I feel grateful just for being able to do the everyday tasks of life.

My heart is broken over the tragic shooting in Orlando, and the victims and their families are in my prayers. God’s children were brutally attacked and killed, and it is deeply disturbing. But He will make all things new, and bring justice to earth (Revelation 21:5).

Although nothing can ease the pain of this tragedy, maybe a fashion collage can provide a positive momentary  distraction. This day’s theme: Crochet!

I think that crochet details will always be a summer staple. They add a delicate and bohemian touch to any outfit. White crochet and mint fabric make an excellent combination!

You can also wear crochet in unique ways, such as accessories or paired with lace.

Have a great week everyone! Let’s remember to shine a light in these dark times with our love.
