Castaway

I love a good palm print.  So when I saw this dress in the Cabi spring line, I knew it had to be mine.  It’s such an easy fit and a great piece to dress up or down.  In fact, I can’t wait to pair it with some gold sandals and a panama hat when the weather warms up a little!  Also, in case you missed it yesterday, here is a sneak peek at Cabi’s new Fall line.  Everything is SO good, but I am especially obsessing over that long plaid coat!

Cheers to the weekend, sweet friends!

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!!

Shades of Burgundy

I typically tend to gravitate towards red during the holiday season.  But another great color option (that is often forgotten in place of its brighter counterpart this time of year), is burgundy.  And I am loving the soft combo of this taupe crushed velvet dress back to burgundy accessories and a dark lip.  And would you believe this dress is on sale for less than $30?  It would be perfect for a Christmas or NYE party!

OTK

I’m all about the booties this year (if you hadn’t noticed).  But also just as near and dear to my heart, are over-the-knee boots.  There are just so many cute styles available this season-many right around the $100 mark.  And for tall boots, that’s a pretty darn good deal.  So be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to shop my favorites (all under $150)!dsc_2374 dsc_2368 dsc_2393 dsc_2355 dsc_2377 dsc_2424dsc_2344 dsc_2339 dsc_2414

I don’t know about you guys, but I stayed up late watching the election results last night.  I just couldn’t help myself.  Can you believe how intense it all was?  My head is still spinning!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Tassels

You guys probably know by now that I love a good tassel embellishment.  So this tassel clutch was an absolute no-brainer for me.  And guess what?  It’s on major sale right now and comes in a bunch of other colors too.  I’d definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a fun new bag this fall.  And the bell sleeves on this cozy sweater? I can’t get enough.  I just love how they take a super simple silhouette and turn it up a notch.

Leopard and Lace

I love a good shift dress.  And this placed print dress with lace trim from Express is an all-time favorite.  Plus, if you don’t own this jacket yet, you NEED to ASAP.  I’ve had it for a couple of seasons and it’s so good.  I’ve even purchased it in a couple of other colors too. The fit is flattering, the material looks expensive, it goes with everything, and it’s under $100. Say what??!! In my opinion, this jacket is definitely the best value item you can add to your wardrobe this season.

Booties and Dresses

One of my favorite combos for the warmer months of the Fall season? Booties and dresses.  And while I’ve loved this shark-bite hem dress as a summer staple, I am particularly liking how it pairs back to booties, and can’t wait to wear it with my favorite leather jacket when the temps start to drop.  But for now, it’s a perfect transitional piece, that is comfy to boot! Plus, it’s only $21!!!

Cozy

It was pretty cold when I was up in Montana earlier this week.  But my mom and I still ventured up to Glacier National Park to have lunch at the lodge, take a little drive, and just drink in the glorious sights and crisp Fall air.  And naturally, I gravitated towards my favorite Fall uniform for our adventure: an oversized cardi, comfy tunic tee, skinny jeans, booties, and a floppy hat.  So if you are looking for some key items to add to your closet this Fall, these are all great staple pieces definitely worth picking up.

Vintage Suede Jacket

When I was home for a wedding over the weekend, I bought a really gorgeous green suede bomber jacket (coming to the blog soon!).  I certainly was not anticipating purchasing one while running errands in my home-town with my mom, but it just happened to be one of those magical finds you sometimes stumble upon at TJMaxx. Anyway, when we got home, my mom disappeared upstairs for a while, and when she came back down, she had this gorgeous cognac suede jacket in hand.  I learned she purchased it when she visited Florence while living abroad in France in 1971, and she wanted me to have it!  I can’t even tell you how thrilled I was.  Not only is it gorgeous and perfect for the Fall season, but what a cool piece of my mom’s history to have.

Stripes

I know I’ve blogged about these camis from Express before.  But they are truly the best and worth mentioning over and over.  Not only do they look great with jeans, slacks, jackets, and skirts, but they are reversible, so you are essentially getting 2 shirts for the price of one.  And in my opinion, there is no better time than a change in season to stock up on basics.  So if you are in the market for a great cami (that comes in tons of prints and solids), then this is the one!

Also, don’t put those white jeans away now that Labor Day has come and gone.  They are perfectly acceptable all year long!
