Apologies + Goodbyes

My dearest friends and followers, I owe you so many apologies and explanations of my whereabouts. 
This past month after going to Hume Lake, I made the final decision to say my goodbyes to my blog, which I actually have been debating for quite some time. This has been one of the hardest decisions to make, letting go of something that I worked at and invested so much time in. But I know it is absolutely the decision that I need to make at this time in my life.

For me personally, my blog started to become an object of stress rather than joy or satisfaction. I started getting health problems I never had before {which I am sure you can remember many posts about} that ended up being directly linked to stress. I started being so consumed in my blog, that I abandoned my relationships with my friends, my family, and God. For those that do not know, I am a Christian and have been for the last five years. God was always number one in my life, but became less and less the more I immersed myself into my blog {through fault of my own}. Becoming a name in the blogging world took more weight in my life than becoming the godly woman that I use to strive to be. I love the Lord SO much and that is why I have made this decision of letting my blog go.

I want to thank you all for coming along with me on this blogging journey these last couple of years. I want each and everyone of you to know how truly thankful I am for you reading my blog, for all the sweet and thoughtful comments, for the kind worded emails, and the daily encouragement and inspiration you gave me. I have made so many wonderful friends through blogging, and I couldn't be more thankful and blessed for that. Blogging has given me so many wonderful opportunities that I never dreamt I would experience, in addition to opening up many doors in my life. I am so incredibly grateful for all that blogging gave me and blessed me with, and I would have never experienced those blessings if it wasn't for you all reading my blog. So in true sincerity, thank you.

Who knows, maybe in the future you will find me back here again to share some fashion inspiration with you all. Who knows where life - or God for that matter - will bring me. I am going to continue Style by L in my hometown, which I am very excited about, and you all can continue to follow along with me on Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram. You might not find an abundance of inspiration, but I'd love for you all to still stay in touch! You can of course email me anytime or befriend me on Facebook

Thank you all for your understanding.
Praying that the Lord blesses each and everyone of you.
Love and best wishes,

Hello, friends. Hope you all had a wonderful week.

Look of the Week

So happy to have stumbled upon the Spanish blogger, Sara of Collage Vintage. Her style is completely effortless {just check out some of her other outfit posts!}. I loved this ensemble because it is perfect for summer travels - whether you are strolling the streets of LA or Spain.
One thing is sure, a luxurious tan leather satchel is an absolute must this summer season. I definitely see one in my near future.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
Happy Friday!

Wednesday Wishlist :: Summer Dresses

These girly, feminine, or modern boho-inspired dresses from Piperlime have me wanting to wear dresses everyday. So many of these are perfect for upcoming summer weddings. The Rhyme Floral dress makes for the perfect attire for any summer garden weddings, the Pim + Larkin graphic floral dress for any church weddings, and the Greylin green silk dress for pretty much any indoor or outdoor settings. All could easily be dressed up or dressed down depending on the location and dress attire. {I'm thinking about purchasing the Pim + Larkin for a church wedding in August!} 
Now...for all of the other darling dresses above, I could easily throw on every single one of them for any and every occasion {how adorable is that denim polka dot dress?!}. Also really loving that bohemian embroidered dress. Yes, please.

Are any of these pretties calling your name?
