Holiday Ready

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is dressing up for Holiday parties.  And sequins of course.  Lots and lots of sequins!  So when I saw this darling silver matte sequin swing dress at Fira (one of my favorite online boutiques), I knew it would be perfect for the holiday season!

For today’s post,  I’m styling it with a gorgeous blush jacket (that is UNDER $40, BTW), and my favorite floral crown, by the talented Miss Stevi Marie.  But I already have a laundry list of other ways I plan to wear this dress over the coming weeks.  In fact, I’m thinking of wearing it over a Christmas plaid button down to a party this coming weekend.  And how cute would it look with a black leather jacket?  The possibilities are endless with this one, laides!  PLUS it’s under $80!  As always, details are at the bottom of the post…

White Out

I have been really into neutrals lately.  But perhaps equally as high on my radar is anything white.  And based on what’s going on out in the market, I can tell I’m not alone!  White is one of the hottest trends of the season.  And with warmer temps upon us, I am ready to put all things white on heavy rotation in my closet! But I want to know, what are you guys thinking about the white trend this season?

Happy, happy Friday y’all!!!  I have been in San Francisco all week for work, so I am especially looking forward to being home and spending time with my sweet little family!  Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

People Style Watch Magazine Feature

If you follow me on Instagram, or if you’ve picked up the most recent issue of People Style Watch Magazine, then you know that I was featured in their August edition of the “You Got It Right” section! (insert excited squeal here!) And I can’t even begin to tell you how thrilled, flattered, and honored I am that they would select one of my outfits to share in their magazine.  It is seriously a dream come true.  And to be honest, I’m having a hard time even wrapping my head around it!

So today, I thought I would share a bit of the back story with you.  People had actually reached out to me in April letting me know they wanted to use my photo. And so in turn, I filled out some model release forms, did an interview, and after several emails back and forth, was told I would most likely be in the August issue of the magazine (barring any last-minute editing changes), but that they would confirm with me when they went to press. After that, I never heard back from them.  I even sent a follow-up email that received no response, and so I figured I must have been left on the cutting room floor. But when I arrived at the SLC airport following a work trip on the day the issue hit stands, my phone lit up like a Christmas tree, buzzing with Facebook and text messages from friends near and far telling me the news.  As you can imagine-it was a pretty thrilling moment.  So I rushed to the nearest newsstand, found a copy, opened it up, and THERE. I. WAS!  Little old me in a magazine!  Insane I tell you, and a pretty sweet moment that I won’t soon forget!

I’ve also had quite a few questions on product details.  The outfit I’m wearing in the magazine is actually from a post I did back in March, but I have listed all of the details and links below.  You can also feel free to click here if you want to see the original post.

Kiss Me, I’m Irish

Happy St. Patty’s Day everyone!  In honor of the holiday, and my Irish heritage, I thought I would share a look incorporating the color green today.  And of course, no look would be complete without a pop of pink and a little sparkle…
