Beauty & Style with Jill {week III}

Welcome back to my weekly new column, where I share my favorite ensembles from the prior week to help you create new looks with all the clothes you already own.

My first look is directly inspired by this sweater jacket that I originally found on Pinterest. 

I’m going to get the shirt dress next.  I love this look with ankle booties.

It has been so cold here in VA Beach, that I choose to wear it with a comfy and warm cowl neck sweater.

A few days later I wore it with a dark teal-green sweater from Target to really bring out the green shades of ombre. 

I love it!

He’s Offering A Light Burden

And I said to my body. softly. ‘I want to be your friend.’ It took a long breath. And replied, ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this.’ letthingsgo

Matthew 11:29-30

“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS

For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
