Holiday Gifting Inspiration

I’m planning on wrapping up my Christmas shopping this weekend, so thought I would share a fun holiday gift guide with you all in case you are looking for a little last-minute inspiration!

Most of these items are on major sale right now, so not only are they all a great deal, but there is definitely something for everyone on this list! And if you aren’t one to brave the crazy holiday crowds, you can get all of these items shipped to you in time for Christmas too, but you’ll have to order soon because time is ticking!  For more inspiration, you can also check out my Monogram Gift Guide here.  Holiday Gift Guideone | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine | ten | eleven | twelve | thirteen | fourteen | fifteen | sixteen

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Polka Dot

I have been on the hunt for the perfect black faux fur vest for months. and finally found this cute one at Nordstrom.  And let me tell you, this vest is my new favorite thing in my closet.  in fact, I have already worn it twice in the past week!  Not only is it super soft and flattering, and but it’s a great price point too!  So if you have been wanting to add a black faux fur vest to your closet this year, then look no further!

Rusted

Rust isn’t always a color I am drawn to in my wardrobe.  But when I saw this pretty sweater at JCrew (on MAJOR sale, by the way!), I thought it would be a perfect option for Thanksgiving and the Holiday season.  It is super cozy and a great color that is different than anything else in my closet and surprisingly goes with so many different things in my wardrobe.  Plus, how great are these lace-up pumps?  Definitely my current favorites (and they’re on sale too!).

White Washed

Happy Monday, friends!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  Ours was filled with home renovation projects, friends, and lots and lots of sunshine and biking.  BUT despite the fantastic weather, there was definitely still a chill in the air.  And this time of year, when temps are still in that in-between phase, I find that a denim jacket is the perfect weight to layer on over your outfit to keep you warm and stylish.  And I am loving this pale blue, white washed version from Nordstrom.  It’s a nice change-up from tried and true blue and gives me different options for styling than my go-to JCrew denim jacket.  Plus, something about the pale color just feels extra fresh for Spring…

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)…

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!!!!

Green for the Holidays (and a REALLY amazing giveaway!!)

Happy Monday, lovelies!  Today I wanted to share with you another outfit idea for the holiday season.  I love red and always tend to gravitate towards it this time of year, but I am here to tell you that green is a fantastic alternative if you are looking to change up your holiday ensembles a bit.  I never thought I would wear this skirt outside of the summer months, but paired back to black and leopard, it feels totally appropriate and perfectly festive for the holiday season!  In fact, I’m thinking of wearing this exact outfit to an even I have this week!!  But I want to know, would you all dare to wear neon green (tulle!) during the winter months???

And be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for a giveaway you don’t want to miss!!!

And now for the giveaway…

If you have followed my blog for a while, then you might remember that I used to wear eyelash extensions.  But after having worn them for several months, I developed a severe allergic reaction to the glue.  And the end result (besides being totally traumatized by the whole ordeal)? Pretty much all of my eyelashes fell out.  And it. was. awful.  Fortunately for me, it was right around this time that I discovered Younique 3D Fiberlash Mascara.  And let me tell you-this stuff is awesome!  I am so hooked on it.  Far less expensive and time consuming than eyelash extensions, you can control the intensity, and you can wear it with or without your current mascara.  People ask me all of the time if I wear eyelash extensions-I am telling you, this stuff is a miracle in two convenient little tubes!

And today (because it’s your lucky day!), I am teaming up with my friend Kim Rosen to give away a set of Younique 3D Fiberlash mascara to one lucky reader (click on the rafflecopter link below)!!!  Winner will be announced Tuesday, December 23rd.

Good luck and happy Monday!!!!!!

Casual Friday

Stripes, camo, and leopard…together?  You bet!  Nothing better than mixing a few favorite prints.  And to sweeten the pot?  Why not add a vest, your favorite denim, and some basic gold jewelry.  And voila!  You are ready to take on the weekend in comfortable, casual style!

Happy weekend friends!

 

 

 

 

 

Short Story

I used to think the combo of shorts and heels together was kind of silly.  But I have to admit, I am a total convert and wearing heels and shorts together is a summer staple for me. When the weather heats up, I am all about fashion short cuts, and adding heels to any outfit (specifically shorts), is a perfect and easy way to glam up a super casual look…

Tulle Cool For School

Ahhh tulle, how I love you so.  So fun, so whimsical, and the perfect fabrication to make any girl feel like a princess.  And let me tell you ladies, tulle isn’t just for ballerinas anymore.  So if you are looking for something different (and super fun!) to add to your wardrobe this spring, then a tulle skirt is the ticket.  You can wear them back to anything from a t-shirt, to a blouse, to a button down, to a jean-jacket.  Rest assured, you will be pleasantly surprised at the plethora of things you will able to style your tulle skirt with.  But perhaps more importantly, how fabulous it will make you feel…
