Altar’d State!!!

This past weekend my mom + little sister came down for some last minute shopping and i FINALLY got to shop around one of the boutiques I have been dying to actually see in person for the LONGEST time. (following really pretty out-of-state stores on Instagram will do that to ya.) I got to peek around Altar’d State and am beyond obsessed with the entire brand and store as a whole. Granted they got a leg up considering I got to peek inside at the beginning of Holiday season aka when all the stores still have full stocks of sweaters and socks and the BEST Christmas decor! (if you don’t have at least 3 displays with fake snow, christmas tunes in the background, and at least 4 christmas scented candles I am not interested…) From some of my favorite bible quotes on the softest tees, to monogrammed mugs, to my *velvet!!!* semi-formal dress, ten/ten stars 100% for this place! I have linked below a few of my favorite items I am lusting off their website!

Out For Coffee Dress // Styles Booties  // Ennis Belle Sweater // Blythe Duffel Coat // Driftwood Angel Ornament // Flannel Ornament (personal fav. literally how stinkin’ cute?!) // my fav devotions book!


If everything wasn’t already flawless, they have prayer request books in every store and on-line as well! Here is the link to the one on their website because how cool is that!!  The power of prayer is pretty darn amazing when a whole bunch of savvy shoppers and girlies team up like that!

Do you have an Altar’d State in your area? If so do you adore it as much as I do? I am pretty positive this is about to be my new go-to shop for ALL my Christmas shopping this year!

until next time, xoxo, Ally



s/o to global warming


top (similar) // pants // shoes (similar, target jeweled ones last season ):)

so quick shoutout to the ONE positive that is coming from this apparently very evident this year since when is it upper 80s in NOVEMBER global warming epidemic: off the shoulder tops for FALL! Who in the WORLD would have ever thought we would see the day? I got to sneak home last weekend and surprise my little sister and shoot some blog pics with my bestie and lemme tell ya those things are ten times more fun when you get to giggle the entire time. I end up learning a lot of life lessons every time we go out and snap some shots. This time included that short walks usually end up with some real fun garage background shots, that power posing is the BEST form of loving yourself, and that my dog REALLY likes apples. Like, really, likes apples.

So onto the outfit: I have been and always will be OBSESSED with denim. It goes with everything, it is so so fun, and gives me an excuse to wear colored pants (aka the ultimate power confidence booster in the fashion world. if you can rock colored pants, you can rock ANYTHING life throws at ya!) These shoes are my all time fav slip-on sneaks, probably because they resemble the love of my life leather ones but these are jeweled…um #duh? They sadly are from last season at Target but I linked some more subtle suede ones that I think are equally as darling.

Has it been abnormally warm where you are too? How have YOU been taking advantage of the warm weather in terms of your fashion choices?

Until next time, xoxo, Ally
