Summer, Summer Time

When asked my favorite season, it's always been a no-brainer question. I've never, ever toggled back and forth between seasons, I've never had another favorite. It's summer. It always has been and it always will be: summer.

I'm not a fan of the cold. I prefer the heat. I prefer being outside and enjoying the sunshine than cooped up indoors.

I'm not a crazy sports fan (we don't have a tv), but I love baseball season and the fact that on any random night we can go catch a game.

I love the lake (Tahoe) and spending my days on the beach and in the water.

I love all of the summertime activities that involve being outside, like nightly dog walks, camping, hiking, park picnics bike rides...the list is endless!

Friends, summer is so beautiful. I'm a plant/flower girl all the way, and I just love summertime trees and flowers. 

I love the long days -- backyard barbecues that are lit by the sun until nine pm and then twinkly string lights after that.

Summer is such a spontaneous season for us. One filled with all sorts of "why not's" and "heck yes's". I love that. I love our road trips and exploration days!

Am I in the minority or majority? What's your favorite season + why?

Blog names are always so fun to learn about. Everyone has a special meaning or reasoning behind the names of their blogs, and mine is no exception. I've had countless emails that have inquired about whether or not "she who fears" is meant as a literal, physical fear or anxiety. While yes, I have dealt with anxiety, and yes, I do have legitimate fears, no -- neither of those are why I named my blog what I did. 

For those of you that aren't aware, I actually have an entire page on this blog about why I named my blog what I did (okay, so maybe it's really only like half of the page). For the sake of not being too repetitive, I'll keep this post mega short, but I encourage you to go an check that out for more of the heart behind it all.

"Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." - Proverbs 31:30

"the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" - Proverbs 9:10

Among many other verses, we are taught that a healthy fear of the Lord is a good thing! It is my desire for this space to be a place where that reverence is cultivated; where it can grow and flourish. Where us women can learn from and lean on each other as we desire to seek and glorify God.

So lately I've been thinking a lot about style. How convenient that it's today's prompt!

Have any of you heard of the capsule wardrobe concept? I had read a lot about people doing it, but I never looked into it. Until a few weeks ago. I have been feeling like I was wearing the same things over and over and just wasn't really enjoying my wardrobe and then pinterest came along and reminded me of this capsule thingy.

So, I got down to business. I started by creating a pinterest board to serve as my place for new wardrobe pieces and building my capsule. Next, I went to my closet and sorted it out: donate, sell, give, keep. I ended up hosting an auction on Instagram and made close to $250! Crazy to think that all these clothes I never wore would make a happy home in someone else's closet, eh? Now, I'm working on slowly bringing in new pieces and making sure that they fit well, are versatile, and that I absolutely love them!

However, there's a catch. I would also love to build my capsule wardrobe ethically. (Which, by the way, is way harder to do than I thought it would be!) This means I'm either spending a little more for the shirt that's made up to ethical standards or buying pre-loved pieces that might otherwise be thrown out. Would definitely love to hear some of your favorite brands to shop in the comments!

Anywho, I feel like my style has generally stayed the same over the years and that maybe it changes a little from season to season. Above are some of my current fall "crushes". If you want to, head on over to my capsule pinterest board, or even my pre-capsule, general style pinterest board to see more of what I like! 

What's your style? Are you a "capsuler"? What are your fave ethical brands? Share below!
