Carry On


Happy Friday and last day of February! I am ready for the weekend with family. Logan has her school talent show tonight and then the girls and Ross have a Daddy/Daughter dance to attend on Saturday. It's a luau theme full of grass skirts, leis, surfboards and hula dancing. I can't wait to show y'all a picture before they head out. On the other hand, I am not so ready for the laundry list of things that we need get done around the house over the next two days.

Forever 21 Top // Gap Boyfriend Denim (option here and here)  // Old Navy Flats // Olivia and Joy Bag c/o (option here and here) // Forever 21 Necklace // Love Always Bar Necklace c/o // Giggolosophy Heart Ring c/o // Wrenn Jewelry Druzy Ring c/o // Forever 21 Stack Rings (option) // Alex & Ani Bracelet c/o The Jeweler's Wife // Lilac Bijoux XO Cuff c/o 

In other news, Love Always sent me this necklace and I absolutely LOVE it! I was able to personalize it exactly how I wanted. Stephanie, the store owner offers the sweetest personality bar necklaces where you can customize your own gold or silver plate.  She also has a few pre-made sayings that you can immediately add to your cart.

I wanted something meaningful. Now when I look down, no matter my day (good or bad), I can remind myself of two simple, but powerful words. I wrote down several ideas, but kept going back to "Carry On". It's one of my favorite songs from Pat Green. We have been fans of his for years, and one this relates to my life on so many levels.


Life will make sure that you got your troubles,

Life will make sure that you work too hard,
Ain't nobody that don't get tired,
Watching troubles pile up big in your own backyard,
Sometimes you've got to grab your world with your own two hands,
Set it spinning off on a course all your own,
Take yourself a big bag for your shoulder,
Find yourself some good times, bring them on back home.
 



...and just Carry On.

Love Always is offering an exclusive discount to my readers. Enjoy 20% OFF your order by using the code SHANNA20 at checkout. Happy shopping!
Have a great weekend and enjoy your time whatever it is you spend doing.

P.S. The pattern dress posted from yesterday is a crowd favorite so far. The magenta one is a close second. Thanks for playing, all the helpful comments and emails. You ladies seriously are the BEST!! xoxo

You look so casual and pretty in this, I love the message on your necklace and the sentiment behind it. Molly went to her daddy/daughter dance a couple of weeks ago and it was so cute, she wore her full out Disney Elsa dress;)

Meg O. said...

Gotta love that Texas country reference. And what an awesome necklace!! It kinda reminds me of Tim Gunn. haha

The Pink Growl said...

Pat Green is awesome!! Love that necklace and your XO bracelet.

Lauren {Fizz and Frosting} said...

I love the meaning behind the necklace - and the message! Such a positive little reminder throughout the day!

Setarra said...

Man I'm so jealous you get to wear clothes like this right now! I'm still stuck in sweaters and long johns with snowy weather in the forecast for this weekend haha. Love love the meaning behind you necklace and I'm going to jump over to yesterday's post right now and leave my vote :)

Michael said...

I agree with Setarra about the clothes. If I never see a pair of gloves and a scarf again, it will be too soon. I do love this whole outfit though. Simple, chic and it looks super comfortable! Counting the days until I can wear this stuff again! Have a great weekend!

oh i love this necklace!! and wow, red is your color! (well so is every color, but you look so great!)

Elizabeth M said...

You are seriously taunting me with that sleeveless top! The temperature outside right now here in NY in 17F. Sad. You look amazing though, so it's OK! I recently ordered a weave bag similar to yours, in the hopes that warmer weather will come sooner.

Take lots of photos of your girls this weekend, Daddy/daughter dances are so special!

Gorgeous! I feel that women look best when they dress down - elegantly of course. You look like a younger, blonder version of Jennifer Aniston. Have a great day!
