Velvet Jumpsuit for NYE

I had good intentions of bringing you festive and sequin-filled NYE inspired posts all week.  But unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned, and I was involved in a pretty major car accident on Tuesday morning. While my car was totaled, I was fortunate enough to walk away from the accident with only a concussion and minor injuries.  And while I am grateful to be alright, it was also a good reminder of how precious life is.

And of course it’s got me thinking.  As events like these often do.  It’s so easy in this day and age to put together and present a perfectly curated life through social media.  But I’m feeling led to share with you guys that my life is anything but perfect.  And if I’m being totally honest, I can also tell you that 2016 has been the hardest, most challenging year of my life.  And I’ve really been struggling this week to wrap my head around how it could possibly be ending with a serious accident on top of everything else. But rather than let myself get down and discouraged (which I’ve totally been doing), I’m reminding myself in times like these, that it’s important to take a step back, take inventory of the blessings you DO have in life, find the joy in the hurt, the laughter in the messiness, surround yourself with those who love you most, and thank God for His grace, protection, forgiveness, and unfailing love.  That is after all, what this holiday season is all about, isn’t it?

In other (more fashion blog-worthy) news, how amazing would this green velvet jumpsuit be to wear to a NYE party (or any other party for that matter)?  If I’m feeling well enough to make it out on NYE this year, this is definitely what I’ll be wearing.  Fingers crossed!

Leopard Coat

One of my favorite things to wear this time of year, is a cozy leopard coat.  Throwing one on is the perfect way to be stylishly warm, and a great option to wear over your cute outfits to and from you holiday parties this season!

Pink Sweater

I waited for so long for this sweater to go on sale at Nordstrom.  And when it finally did on Black Friday, I pounced.  And I am SO glad I did.  Not only do I love the color, but I love the tunic length style because I can wear it with jeans and leggings.  Plus, its really comfy and comes in a ton of colors.  It will definitely be a go-to piece in my wardrobe this winter.

Off The Shoulder

I’m a sucker for a good off the shoulder top.  And Free People has SO many cute ones in their Fall line right now.  I can hardly contain myself.  So if you are looking for a good off the shoulder number, be sure to check out this one, and my other favorites linked below!

Jeffrey Campbell Dupes

I love plaid all year round, but every year when September hits, it’s game on.  But you know what I’m the most excited to share with you guys today?  These booties!  They are absolute perfect dupes for my favorite Jeffrey Campbell version, but are only $40!  I seriously couldn’t believe it when I saw them.  And they’re great quality and super comfy too.  A definite must-have for your Fall wardrobe this season.  But they do run a little small, so I would recommend sizing up a 1/2 size.

Go Shortie

Denim shorts and gingham tops.  Probably one of the greatest summer combos of all time, if you ask me.  And this top is a new favorite in my closet.  I love the pretty tie detail on the sleeve, the cute off-the-shoulder detailing, and of course the classic navy gingham print.

On Repeat

This little orchid skirt was one of my favorite purchases from last Spring.  Fast forward to a year later, and it’s still one of my favorite things in my closet.  And even though on its own it’s a pretty statement piece, I love that it goes so well with other bright colors, giving me endless options to style it different ways!
