Pink Pop

When I posted this gray jacket on Instagram last week, I had a lot of you ask me if I would include it in a blog post.  And because I love it just as much as you guys seem to, I couldn’t help but oblige.  Not only has this jacket become a staple in my wardrobe this winter, but it is under $40 (say what?)!  So if you are looking for a new piece of outerwear to add to your wardrobe this season that won’t break the bank, then look no further than this chic coat!

Dolled Up

I love getting dolled up.  And the holiday season presents exactly that opportunity.  But living in a state with a cold winter climate, sometimes I feel like I don’t have any coats or jackets that look or feel all that glamorous.  So for quite a while, I have been on the hunt for a great (and affordable) faux fur animal print coat-and I am happy to report that I have finally found one (AND that it costs less than $65)!!! Not only is it super cozy (it reminds me of my favorite faux fur throw), but  I love the vintage feel of it, and the idea of pairing it back to great heels and a dress for a NYE party, or wearing it with boots, skinny black pants, and a silk top (like I did for a friend’s casual wedding reception over the weekend)…

Faux Fur Coat: Forever21 (under $65!!!), similar, similar, similar (all options are under $100!) | Silk Tee: Express (like I always say, BEST layering tees ever!) | Skinnies: JCrew | Ring: Kendra Scott | Necklace: JCrew | Watch: Michael Kors | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Clutch: Hobo International (loving the silver version!) | Boots: TJMaxx, LOVE these

On another note, can you BELIEVE tomorrow is NYE and that yet another year has come and gone?  As cliche as it might sound, I just can’t believe 2014 is already just about over. BUT I always look forward to all of the possibilities that a new year brings. Kind of exciting, don’t you think?

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  Thank you so much for stopping by!!!!

P.S. CONGRATS to Mary Happymommy!  You are the LUCKY WINNER of the Fiberlash 3D Mascara giveaway!  Be on the lookout for an email from me or Kim with the details!!!  You are going to LOVE this stuff!!!!

L.O.V.E.

Does anyone else remember that Ashley Simpson used to have a music career (outside of her lip synching debacle on SNL)? I had completely forgotten until I saw this shirt hanging on the rack at one of our Macy’s stores. And like a tidal wave, the bubbly lyrics and catchy tune of L.O.V.E. came flooding back to me and I knew the shirt had to be mine.  😉

But in all seriousness, and aside from my forgotten love for the younger Simpson’s bubblegum pop, I have been obsessing over graphic tees all fall. They are fun, catchy like your favorite pop song, and have the potential to add a little sass to any outfit while boasting the comfort of a t-shirt. And not only that, but in addition to obviously being great with jeans, they work well with blazers and cardis, colored and printed skinnies, and even skirts and leggings. Just another fab item to add to your wardrobe helping you to create endless outfit possibilities!

I actually wore the above outfit on a road trip to Montana this past weekend.  It was comfy and cute, and an easy transition from 8 hours in the car straight to dinner with family and friends.  The only thing I had to do was change my shoes.  I wore the black boots pictured above for dinner, but wore my Uggs in the car to keep me comfy and warm.  And although sometimes tough to create, I often love outfits that can transition from one event to another the best.  The older I get, the less time I feel like devoting to changing my clothes throughout the day so I’m always a huge fan of items that make things easier.  So if you are on the hunt for a great graphic tee, H&M and Forever21 are always a great place to start and should both have plenty of options at affordable prices!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
