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!

Wishing you all a safe and happy New Year this weekend.  And a huge thank you for your continued love and support, and for making this blog possible.  Y’all have been such a bright spot in my life this past year and I am so appreciative!

Cheers to a better and brighter 2017!!

Peek-a-boo

Since you guys loved this top so much when I posted it on my Instagram, I wanted to share it on the blog today.  The cold-shoulder trend is one of my favorites, and when I saw this cute little number for less than $30, I immediately snatched it up.  It also comes in a pretty nude color, but it’s selling out fast, so definitely grab one while you can.  It’s SO good!

Happy hump day, friends!  I don’t know about you guys, but I am so ready for the weekend already!

Romper

I love a good romper.  And this one just might be my favorite.  Ever.  I am always a fan of anything navy, which was originally why I was drawn to it, but the tie waist makes it particularly flattering.  Plus the length isn’t too short-which is always something I seem to struggle with when it comes to rompers.  So if you’re looking for an easy, flattering romper (for a great price!), then this is the one, ladies!

Don’t forget, there are just a couple of days left to shop the #NSale!  You can shop my favorites here (most items have been restocked!).  And be sure to check back tomorrow for one last round-up of some of my favorite beauty and active items from the sale!

Happy Friday, sweet friends!

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.

Tassel Town

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve got a serious thing for tassels this summer.  I mean really, could they be more FUN? Plus, how cute is this dress? The quality is fantastic (for under $20!!), and the back just might be even cuter than the front.

Pastel

Though the seasons and trends come and go, long sleeve dresses have been at the top of my list for quite a while now.  And this dress is a definite favorite.  I love the soft pastel print, and the lightweight fabric makes it a perfect transitional piece to wear as the weather warms up (and it’s definitely getting warm around here)!

LWD

White dresses are all the rage this summer.  And I have to say, this is a trend that I am more than happy to jump on board with!  Because while I always love a good splash of color, sometimes you really just can’t beat a white and neutral ensemble.

Cold Shoulder

When I was in college, my very favorite top in my closet was a white and black cold shoulder cut-out top from Bebe.  So when I saw this cute cold-shoulder sweater at Top Shop in NYC a couple of weeks ago, it pulled on my heartstrings for all sorts of nostalgic reasons.  And then it made me feel really old when I realized that I was reliving the shoulder cut-out trend for a second time in my life.  But even all these years later, it’s still a trend I love.

Apparently I wasn’t the only one craving this jacket, because it sold out and was re-stocked twice before I was finally able to order it!  So if you are looking for something fun to add to your closet, this is a fantastic option.  Not only will it go with a ton of different things, but it’s just $30 and really nice quality! Can’t beat that!
