Being a mostly boutique shopper, I can say I for one have been totally impressed with Urban Outfitters lately. I’ll be the first to admit that I haven”t always been an “Urban Gal”- I’ve always loved their quirky home stuff and that’s been about it. I recently stopped by the Urban in Rice Village & was beyond pleasantly surprised. I wanted more things than I needed & took home way more than I had planned!
I have always loved Urbans home items, so those of course were expected to be fab. What I wasn’t expecting to find though was some actually great perfume. I’m super picky about scents and only like clean/fresh smells- but totally fell in love with the ones I saw when I first walked in. I also was really impressed with how much their beauty section had grown! Like- a whole vanity set up just to sit and look at products- what more could you ask for?! All jokes aside, I am now a superfan of the face masks that I picked up and will be going back to get more.
Can’t forget about their dresses & rompers (which I think are still on sale!). I snagged this one up (Last XS- YAY! and a few others. The prints are perfect for summer and the quality is great. The perfect combo of “Comfy Cute”- just what I love! I also was a fan of their separates- their shorts are to die for and also come in fun, bright colors.
My point is this: if you’re anything like me, you need to go to Urban soon! Be sure to give yourself lots of time-as there is, tons to look at. & if you’re in Houston, the Rice Village location should be the one to check out! Whether it be you need a new outfit for the weekend or just want some new candles- this is one chain store that won’t let you down.
Happy Wednesday! This week’s weekly inspiration comes from Proverbs 13:20-
“Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.”
I have been doing daily devotionals with my church group all week and came across this message I think like Monday! Whew- was it a good one! We’ve all heard the saying “Beware of the company that you keep”- but I will be the first to admit that I never looked at that statement from a biblical standpoint. This verse reminded me that, and so much more. Proverbs 13 reminds us just how much we can be influenced by those around us.
It’s so easy to not notice how much things influence our daily lives. Take a song you semi can’t stand for example- if you hear it enough times, whether you like it or not, you start to memorize & sing the words whenever it comes on! This small example is a realization that our minds are so easily influenced by other things! The company you keep is indeed important & always something to consider. This week, my challenge for you is to send a prayer up for your friend! Pray that your circle continues to strengthen each other, challenge each other, & always have the best of times!
Until Next Time! P.S.- Deets on my outfit can be found here
As if we needed a reason to love Beyonce even more, IVY Park just keeps getting better and better. I love this line, not only because Queen B created it, but because it’s comfy and whats better than being comfy on a Monday! I have totally accepted the fact that most of my Sundays are spent in leggings and a tee. Besides, what else are Sundays for than for church, resting, and catching up on your favorite shows!
Since I was gone for a few weeks, I for sure had some extra time on my hands- time enough to round up tons of my favs. Most of the items above are on sale and are running out quickly so be sure to take a peek! During my little “blogging break” besides shopping- I also thought of some random things too! Like how I’ve never really made a bucket list & totes need to do so. Also, how I am for sure going to plan a birthday party for my fur baby on his birthday (I’m so serious ya’ll)! All super random things, I know but needless to say- the blog is back in full effect!
Hello loves! So the blog is back in full swing! I’m so happy to be getting back into my regular posting schedule and catching up on life. As most of you know, I was gone for 2 weeks traveling for work in Asia. I took a break not only because of my work schedule, buy my life schedule in general! It’s so easy to get so caught up and things and forget what’s important. I felt myself drifting away from the many reasons why I started Styl’d Grace in the first place- so a mini bloggin vacay was exactly what I needed!

Happy Wednesday! This week’s weekly inspiration comes from Psalm 119:114-
“You’re my place of quiet retreat; I wait for Your Word to renew me.”
I love this verse! It’s like a breath of fresh air and words of solitude all in one.Psalm 119:114 is exactly what I needed to remind myself before I spilled the beans:
Due to having such a hectic schedule, I’m sure it’s obvious that I’m taking a little break from the blog this month. Consider this my first (& most likely last) blogging break.
I have had a lot going on & I honestly needed a break- so that break is this April! I have been really busy lately from work, to my fur baby to everything in between. My day designer (which I live by) is filling up like cray and I have decided to take this time “off”. At the end of March, when I officially decided to do this- I was semi worried about it. If I’m being like super honesty- I was actually really worried. I kept thinking about all the things that could happen:
My stats could go down
Some of the ideas I have could be done by someone else before I got to them
I would miss out on some campaigns
Needless to say, I was a little scared ya’ll! I was at first- then I suddenly stopped & thought about why I started Styl’d Grace in the first place. It wasn’t for the stats- never has been & never will be. It wasn’t for the campaigns with brands or the sponsored posts (although those are fab!). It was for one reason alone-
because I love to write & it has always been my creative outlet.
Writing has always been my sense of peace and I will never lose that. I didn’t start my blog for any of the reasons bullet-ed above. I started it simply to have an outlet of positivity & happiness- Sprinkles of Jesus, my favorite brands and my favorite shoes from time to time. I wanted an outlet that highlighted some of the amazing women that I know (#BossBabes), talk about some of my personal testimonies, & some other randoms (because I’m totes random!). For that reason alone- this month, I am taking a break because I’m busy & I need to. I’ll be posting some stuff from time to time over on my IG, but my weekly series will be on hold from now until May. Not that anythings wrong (I promise ya’ll, I’m good)- I just need a few weeks to focus on some other things. It’s so good to remember why I started my blog & be able to say that Styl’d Grace is still here for all the right reasons!
P.S- As always, deets on this outfit (including this fab top) can be found here!
