Happy Tuesday, ladies! Today I’m excited to teaming up with Amy from the Straight A Style blog to share the paperbag shorts trend. Amy has impeccable style, and she is absolutely beautiful inside and out, so make sure you check her out HERE.
Amy and I also styled another trend this summer, which is the plastic handbags. I think this is a fun trend to add to your outfits. The one I’m carrying is already sold out, but it’s also offered in a brown color.
Paperbag shorts are usually gathered at some area and with a fabric coming out the top, above the clinched area. Most often there is a tied belt or ribbon around the waist, and there is either a slightly or completely flared hem. It looks like a paper bag which is where it got its name – ruffled at the top, flared at the bottom.
They emphasize the waist and can make you look taller. The right way to style these trendy bottoms is with fitted tops. I styled my shorts with a pretty lace yoke blouse from Nordstrom.
Have you tried the paperbag short trend yet?
Beauty for the Heart~~Some words are mentioned quite a few times in scripture, and when they are, I think there’s a reason. Abide is mentioned over one hundred times.
Christ is reminding us to abide. Abide in Him, in His word, and in His grace. It takes discipline to slow down and remain in God’s word, but without it, we can’t live victoriously.
Here are some scriptures that remind us to abide in Christ.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. John 15:7
Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. 2 John 1:9
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. John 15:4
Let’s be intentional today and abide in Him.
Have a blessed day!
