we seek after these things.

So lately I've been OBSESSED with fall fashion and have been dying for a shopping trip down to the Gateway and a little spending money. I'm in love with the over sized, chunky sweaters, scarves, layering, skinny jeans, leggings, boots {i could go on and on.} Luckily I have a few items already in my wardrobe, some that I haven't worn for a few years and am excited to bring back with some new accessories.

It's hard to convey to Mark the importance of fall clothes and my need to purchase some new items. But I ran across this amazing blog, she is just the cutest! {maybe I want to be just like her and have all her clothes. she went to BYU-Idaho so I like to think I ran into her on campus a few times :) Check out her "weardrobe" link, super cute!} Anyways, she brought up a good correlation between our faith as member of the LDS church and the way we engage in culture, the world, style, etc. She gave me a great new argument to use against Mark and his always winning statement of "do you want clothes or to go to Europe."

Well Mark, the 13th article of faith states, "if there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." I'm just following what we believe in. Clothes and Europe are lovely, of good report and praiseworthy, and i believe virtuous (that may be somewhat of a stretch.)

So I will be adding some new sweaters and other items to my wardrobe. {but I will be frugal and find good deals.}
   Love this outfit, love her.Boots plus outfit. adorablefall/winter mustjcrew for the win.
