Raise your hands, all you rebels! You know who you are. Come to think of it, we do, too! And you’d have it no other way. You didn’t just discover your rebellious style streak when you took my What’s Your Style Essence Quiz. You’ve known all along that you prefer not to play by the rules.
Today I thought I’d feature an outfit with your name scribbled all over it. Yep, I’m dressing the rebellious style essence!
It’s no secret that I’m pretty much a classic dresser myself, but I like to color outside the lines occasionally, too. And sometimes, depending on the venue and occasion, a little rebellion is in order. (Attending a live 80s pop star concert? Chaperoning a fun youth event at church? Visiting your college kids on parents’ weekend? Getting away with the gal pals for a fun road trip?)
My rebellious style essence look begins with this fun and oh-so-comfortable distressed denim skirt from Evy’s Tree. Those gals think of everything, including an elasticized back waistband for comfort and ease of wear. Oh, and this skirt is a great price for the quality.
I’m wearing a medium in the skirt and it fits pleasantly. It has a lot of stretch though, too.
Honestly, when I wore this outfit to Target the other day I went even edgier and wore these leopard print booties (similar and on sale!) with it. But I didn’t know if you ladies were quite ready for that yet. Hahaha! So I tamed the look a little with my leopard print slides. (Catch that pun??? “Tamed” the look?)
You can dress rebellious without getting nasty. Just pair your distressed denim skirt with a fun t-shirt that looks modern and hip, but one that still has a sweet sentiment.
Well, wha da ya think? Did this modern classic gal manage to strike a little harmonious discord with this rebellious style essence look? Would you wear an outfit like this? Where and when? I’d love to know. Like I said, I wore it to Target! Hahaha! Yep, I’m wild and crazy like that!
By the way, you’ll notice the skirt isn’t available in the widget below. It’s available only at Evy’s Tree here. Thanks so much to the sweet gals at Evy’s Tree for sending me this distressed denim skirt to style. They inspired a rebellion!! (*wink**wink*)

Blessed for My Day
Every life has those moments when we discern that one season is ending and another is beginning. Some seasons end abruptly with the death of a spouse or child, the loss of a job or the onset of sickness. But others seasons, most seasons, come and go gently. We simply look around one day and realize things are no longer the same. The children have grown up, the work place has evolved, the neighborhood has mellowed, our bodies have slowed down.
Regardless of whether the change in seasons feels comfortable or unappreciated, the change can be stressful. But one thing we can count on as things in life change: God walks through the changes with us and gives us purpose along the way. And that purpose always includes a call to be a blessing to those we encounter. In the season you are in right now, how are you blessing those around you? Ask God to show you if there is more He would have you do so that He might work through you to bless others.
Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” ~ Genesis 12:1-3
