Topknot and Turtleneck for Fall + Free Firmoo Eyewear

How to Style a Turtle Neck for Fall:
Turtle Neck || Closet Swapped
What is closet swapping? Well, it means you trade clothes with your friends for keeps or just to borrow. This allows you to change up your wardrobe without the inflicted wallet-related injuries. hehe.
Muted Blue Silk Maxi Dress || *Vintage, from my mom back in the day
The best thing about vintage finds is that they are many times one of a kind. Also, if you go thrifting you will not only save money, but will be helping the earth by purchasing an item that otherwise may have been thrown away. Don't forget that you can upcycle thrifted finds too, like I did with this denim jacket here.
Wide Leather Boots || Clarks
Large Brown Purse || *Closet Swapped
Green Prescription Computer Glasses #F047 || c/o Firmoo
These green pair of glasses would make my 3rd pair of Firmoo prescription and computer protection eyewear. Firmoo purchases directly from lens and frame manufacturers which allows them to decrease their prices and avoid overhead costs. I honestly am not sure about the ethics of eyewear, and so I can not 100% vouch for the ethics of this brand, however, I like these specs because they come with a cute case and repair kits, and have a computer film to protect your eyes from radiation. I am not sure how potent this film truly is, however, I use to get head aces when looking at the computer, and now I don't (as much). :) You can get your first pair free from their website. Just click this link here.

The Parable of the Rich Fool
13 Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”
14 Jesus replied, “Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?” 15 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
16 And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17 He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’
18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’
20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you.Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ 21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”

I read this in my morning devotional (devo for short) yesterday, and it really resonated. Life is short. Live it to the fullest and find riches and joy in relationships, not things and hoarding. Love people and God, not stuff. This world uses the word "love" very loosely. I use it to describe people, clothes, bugs, and a large range of material things. Do I really "love" those things? I need to find a word between like and love. Ideas?

  11. Girl, thanks for your super super dope thoughtful comment on my blog the other day. Melted my heart! I love this post. I think it's the perfect marriage between fall and summer haha. I've been dying to try a sweater over a maxi, so will be bookmarking. As for the glasses, dope frames. I think I'm too attached to Warby to give Firmoo a chance, but I just might... "Free" is my favorite word lol
