Statements in All Black with Maddy

Sunday, August 20, 2017

FRIENDS!!! I'm so excited about today's post mostly because we have a special guest here on Merging Threads... my cousin (who is basically my bff), Maddy! Maddy is my fashion soul sista, so her appearance on my blog seems long over due. We are both huge lovers of black. If you ask me, black does not get the attention it deserves. Lots of people think of statement outfits as having bold patterns or interesting cuts. Maddy and I want to show that you can be just as bold & make a  sassy statement in the color black!

5 Things I Learned This Summer

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Good afternoon, friends! It's a lovely rainy Wednesday and my last day of summer. Whoa. Time has flashed before my eyes. The end of my junior year seriously feels like yesterday, but at the same time, I feel like such a different person than I was when I walked out of school that last day. I think it's crazy how much you can learn from even the smallest of experiences and how those tiny moments can so distinctly shape you into who you are. It is in times like these--seasons of change and new beginnings-- where I look back and am SO SO thankful for everything that has happened. As I look back on the past couple months, I realize that I've learned a lot. I've learned from new experiences, learned from old ones, and definitely learned from my mistakes. Today I want to take you all through my little summer reflection and share with you five things that I learned this summer.

Happy August 13th!!  I can't believe it, you guys. I start my senior year of high school on Thursday. Life is moving so quickly... but I'm super excited for this school year to begin!

Michigan Travel Blog

Sunday, July 30, 2017

Happppppyyyy Suuunnnddaaayyy! I cannot believe that this week marks the beginning of August. Life is flying by, you guys! Holy cow. Even when time seems to move fast, I think it is important to slow down for a bit and just sit in awe of all of life's wonders. This world is full of so much beautiful scenery and wonderful places. One thing that I never seem to wrap my head around is my love for Michigan. Michigan is such a happy place for me. The simplicity of life and the happiness that Michiganders seem to carry in their hearts inspires me. I look forward to  returning every summer. It feels like my home away from home. Today I am super happy to share snippets of this year's adventure up north with y'all. 

Workout Dress? I think YES!

Sunday, July 23, 2017

Yay, it's Sunday, my favorite day of the week.  I see Sundays as fresh starts. It is up to you to make the week ahead the best yet! As you may have noticed, I've been a little MIA from social media this week. I spent the past five days at a church camp. Experiences like this are rejuvenating. Life is so so good, friends! Maybe it's because I spent a lot of time in sporty gear at camp this week, but today I decided that it would be fun to share an alternative to your average athletic wear.
