Sunday Scripture


As we conclude this month of Thanksgiving, and enter the season of hope and joy, this verse just reminds me that all good comes from our Sweet Lord. It's not me, but Him, who brings hope, blessing, and grace to my life. What a wonderful reminder as we enter the most wonderful time of the year!

Thanks for stopping by y'all!

Leopard Holiday Look


It's the start of holiday party season, and I don't know about you but my calendar is jam-packed! Since I'm trying to save my budget for buying presents for my sweet friends and family, I've been re-working old favorites into fun party looks- and this might be my favorite! As we all know by now #leopardisaneutral, and make that leopard in a turquoise print and we have a big winner friends! I just added my go-to black skirt and fun bow pumps, and bam! A winner!

Gifting Made Easy: Easy Stocking Stuffers


It's the month before Christmas y'all- can you believe it?! I can hardly contain my excitement… Christmas is my absolute FAVORITE!! Today is one of the funnest (is that a word?) installments of my "gifting made easy" series and we're tackling those pesky last-minute stocking stuffers (they always seem to be a scramble don't they?) Everything you see is easy to find and will make your loved one happy (especially if it's me- hint hint Santa)! :)

"And the best part is, you can wear it again!"

If you're anything like me, at this point in your life you have probably been in quite a few weddings! And I don't know about you but I have heard, more times than I can count, "And the best part is you can wear it again!" (Que. scene from 27 Dresses) However, with the modernization of bridesmaid dresses this is actually becoming a true statement! No longer are we drowning in layers of taffeta and fluff, but we are wearing chic and streamlined dresses! (Thank the bridesmaid designing lords!!) :)

When Weddington Way asked me to style a bridesmaid dress for the "big day" and the weekend, I jumped at the chance! I've actually used Weddington Way for a recent wedding I was it and it was fabulous! So I'm excited to style the dress for you that I actually wore and show you just how versatile they can be!


Dress: Weddington Way in Cerise // Shoes: Charles by Charles David // Statement Necklace: BabuleBar // Clutch: Natasha Couture // Pashmina: Nordstrom // Bracelet: Kate Spade // Earrings: Kate Spade


Dress: Weddington Way in Cerise // Boots: Frye // Jacket: KUT from the Kloth // Studs: Kate Spade // Crossbody: Michael Kors // Necklace: BaubleBar // Watch: Michael Kors

Thanks for stopping by y'all!

PS- Have you entered my giveaway with the Mint Julep Boutique?! Only a few more days!

Thanksgiving Day with the Mint Julep + A Giveaway!


Y'all… hold onto your hats and don't panic, but Thanksgiving is in one week!! EEEKKKK! If you're anything like me you are starting to ponder the most important question of the day: what will I wear?! You obviously want something comfortable and adorable, with enough room to enjoy second helpings of cranberries, sweet potatoes, and yams (my favorite!) If these are all the questions you are pondering, then let me introduce you to the sweater that will answer all your questions! :) 

I've been a fan of The Mint Julep Boutique for quite some time, so getting to style this sweater was a true "pinch me" moment! I love the comfort, the bright colorful pattern, the "roominess", and well… just everything about it! I know that Thanksgiving is now going to be less stressful knowing i've got my outfit taken care of! Have you picked out your outfit yet??

Gifting Made Easy: For Me

Dear Santa,

I've tried my hardest to be a good girl this year! I've shared my love of color and sparkles with everyone I've met, shared a whole lot of smiles with strangers, and been very generous with sharing my champagne! :) All I want for Christmas are a few fun items that will fill my house and life with cheer all year round!

Looking forward to all the sparkle under my tree this year!

Love,
Gentry

Ruffled Plaid


Let's take a quick second to talk about things that I love: 1) plaid 2) ruffles- put them together in one shirt and you can't pry it off me! Today's outfit isn't too complicated, just my favorite ruffled plaid and my go-to J. Crew skirt, but there's something about its simplicity that I just adore! This is the perfect outfit after a weekend of fun when you need something easy for Monday. Nothing's better for tackling a long week than an outfit that makes you feel great! Hope your week goes fast and fabulous! :)

Currently Obsessing Over... {v. 15}

Well we've made it to Friday friends! Was it just me or did this week really meander to get to the end?? I'm very thankful to have a weekend to reset and refresh as I continue to get ready for Christmas (it's getting soooo close!!)

Here's what's on my radar as we head into this beautiful weekend...

Now You See Me...


Camouflage isn't a pattern that I normally associate with my girly and preppy closet, but after seeing how popular it is this season I was determined to "girly-up" some camo! I love that this sweater is silver rather than your traditional green camo, and I think it definitely lends itself to being made slightly less "hunter". ha! 

Also, the weather here is still fluctuating between 60's in the morning and high 70's in the afternoon- so this look is still appropriate! But I'm also thinking it would be perfect for early spring too- gotta love something you can wear year round! 

Are you loving camo this season?! I dare you to try it! (and then tell me all about it) :)

Gifting Made Easy: For Your Co-Workers


I am so excited to launch Girl Meets Bow's very first gift guide! The Christmas season is my very favorite time of year and I love picking out the perfect gift for everyone in my life! I thought that I would launch this series with the most tricky of those to buy for- your co-workers. I say that this is the trickiest because when it comes to gifting for those you work with you want to make sure to walk the line between personal and professional, and that can sometimes be hard to navigate. I have personally gifted many of the ideas above and they are all big hits in the office place, so without further ado…

Dressing for a Sunny Winter

I recently got my first reader request for a style post (thanks Margaret- you made my day!) and she asked if I would help explain "Florida Style" since she is moving here from the chilly North! She pointed out that in researching the area she noticed we have a much more relaxed style, and wanted to know how that translated in the warmer winter months. I loved the idea!!

Our style here in the Sunshine State is different from just about anywhere else in the country- and I wouldn't have it any other way. While I am working on a fun style collaboration with some other blogger friends, I thought today would be perfect for a roundup of some of my favorite winter looks for the sunniest "winter" around!

1) I think I have a new mantra in life, "Aztec is always the answer" (ha!) A cozy tribal sweater on a chilly 50 degree day is the perfect combination. I love pairing these sweaters with my favorite ponte pants and riding boots. It's got the right weight to keep you warm, while not making you burn up!

"Belle" of the Ball

Last week I had a complete "pinch me" moment when I was invited to Dillard's to style some looks from the Belle Badgley Mischka line of contemporary evening and special occasion dresses. I couldn't have been more excited to get glamorous for the evening! And though the dresses were gorgeous and certainly did not disappoint (in fact I didn't want to take them off!) - what really put the evening over the top was the amazing specialists at my local Dillard's at International Plaza! The entire staff made me feel so special the entire night as we said "ohhh" and "ahhh" over ever dress I styled. These ladies we're beyond amazing and I can't thank them enough for how special they made me feel! (You ladies rock!) :)

I hope y'all have some fun weekend plans! This weekend is Junior League of Tampa's Holiday Market and it totally kicks off my Holiday shopping- it's the perfect place to find one-of-a-kind gifts! (Mom if you're reading don't read my recap- I'm planning on finding some fab gifts for you!) :) I can't wait to #shopsharecare! 

Now onto my current obsessions this week...

Mad for Plaid



I absolutely love versatile outfits like this! I wore this the other weekend shopping all day and than easily transitioned it to a casual girls night out- and it was perfect for both occasions! Lately I'm really loving dressing up my plaid shirts for a more sophisticated vibe, it's fun to take something casual and turn it into something more fancy! And as a bonus… it's comfy too! Best of both worlds! :)

Wedding Wednesday: #thegunklewedding {The Big Day}


Well friends we have a big day today; the biggest day in fact: Cherysh's day of "I Do's"! I have previously shared Cherysh's bachelorette (part 1 and part 2) as well as her rehearsal dinner, but I am so excited to share her wedding day today! I was honored that Cherysh asked me to be her "day of" coordinator (basically her wedding planner for the big day); I couldn't have been more excited to help take stress off her and make her dream day everything she wished for!

It was an absolutely gorgeous North Carolina day and every detail of the wedding was just perfection! Cherysh thought of every last detail and picked out every decoration featured on her day. She even had me and my sweet "assistants" assemble her alter for her! From stringing decorations to hammering signs in the ground- we would have done anything to help this gal have the best day ever! We love you Cherysh and are so glad you've found the man to spend your "happily ever after" with!

Enjoy this look at all the details that made this Big Day so very special for #thegunklewedding:

Neutral Palette


The minute I saw this necklace I fell head-over-heels, put-it-in-your-shopping-cart-now, in love with it! I am so excited to finally be getting to share it with you today (I couldn't keep it hidden away any longer!) 

The key to styling a necklace this bold it to keep your background colors neutral, so your baubles can stand out and take center stage. Plus wearing something this fun and "look at me" keeps your outfit from being anything but boring!

Good Reads


Happy Monday Friends! I hope that y'all had the most fabulous of weekends! I spent some time at home to help my little sister get ready for her homecoming dance (I'll be sharing pictures soon!) It was so fun spending some time with my sweet family!

Now onto today's fun look! I'm such a bookworm and there is absolutely no better way to spend a sunny Saturday than enjoying a fun chick lit book (and sipping on some yummy coffee of course)! Fall has 100% hit Florida and it has been SO fabulous! I'm soaking up every minute of this beauty. What's your favorite way to spend a gorgeous weekend?

Sunday Scripture


I don't think I can add many words to these, because they are so true and give me so much to be thankful for. Friends we don't have to take on burdens alone, we have hope that can be put in Him who is so much bigger than us. His shoulders can take so much more if we let Him. Be thankful for this truth today!

Thanks for stopping by y'all!
