...And More Ruffles



| Sweater: not available online, similar | Jeans: SP Black | Booties:Kendal + Kylie | Handbag: Chanel |

Happy Friday, friends! Hope everyone has continued to have a great week! For most of you, I know this means the last little bit of time off...... it is for me too. But, with NYE just around the corner, there is a little fun left to be had. What plans do you all have for NYE?

So, if you couldn't tell already, I'm obsessed with ruffles! So naturally, when I saw this sweater, I had to have it! Super comfy. So sad that it's not available online but I found one that is almost identical and I've linked it above. Paired with my favorite booties and some comfy black jeans and I'm ready for a day full of errands or a day out with friends. 

When it comes to my house, I feel like there is constantly something I am doing to improve it. Lately, the new project is finding some art work. I want to add some pieces to my room and the guest bedroom. Would love any suggestions you have! Of course, I've been stalking HomeGoods but I haven't found the right pieces yet.

Thank you for stopping by!!

Plum Perfect



| Top: not online, similarsimilar | Jeans: Joe's | Handbag: Louis Vuitton | Booties: Steve Madden | 


I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! The holidays always seem to fly by so quickly. And is it just me or is the actual holiday super stressful. I felt like I had jumped in the 'Four Christmas' movie for a day. But, not complaining, I loved every minute of it. And boy did I eat so much food. Omg is a miracle I can still fit in my pants. I never thought I would say this but, its a blessing that I am getting my wisdom teeth out next week because I need to have a week or two of barely eating. 

I was in Belk a few weeks ago doing some Christmas shopping and I stumbled upon this top. I mean how darling is it? Unfortunately, I waited to long to post and its not longer online, but, I would some even cuter alternatives that are very similar. Plum is one of my favorite fall/winter colors. I would wear it all of the time if I could. It pairs so perfectly with dark jeans and a cute little tan bootie. 

It's crazy to think that New Year's is just a few days away. My roommate and I have decided to throw a little party and I am super excited. I'm usually not one to host, but, I figured after 6 months in my new house, it was probably time. What are you all planning for New Year's? Would love to hear what you all have going on.

Christmas is Almost Here!



|  Sweater: Nordstrom | Jeans: Joe's (all time favorite) | Boots: Nordstrom  | Handbag: Tory Burch (extra 20% off) | Sunglasses: Karen Walker |
 
Happy Thursday, friends! Hope everyone is having a great week. Today I want to share with you a fun/comfy Christmas look along with some of my favorite family Christmas traditions. When it comes to holiday wear, you cant go wrong with a comfy and cozy red sweater. It's always my go to and it never disappoints. This one from Nordstrom is one of my favorites, ill definitely be using it in years to come. In other news, this handbag is my new favorite and its not only marked down, but an extra 20% off! If you've been thinking about making the plunge, now is the time.
 
Earlier this week, one of my work friends and I hosted a Christmas party for all of the children of people that we work with. And OMG we had so much fun. We had some people dress up as Santa and Mrs. Claus, had crafts, and lots of yummy food! This is a tradition that I hope continues in future years.
 
So, some of my favorite memories as a child, were from the holidays. Every year, I get to spend lots of time with my family! Up until I graduated from college, my mom and I would decorate the house on the first day of the December. I've now continued that tradition with my roommate and the sweet pup. It was so much fun getting to decorate my own house this year. It's the first Christmas we are spending in this house, so I have soaked up every minute of it. Last night for instance, we were completely basic and sat on the couch, drank hot cocoa, watched Christmas movies, and had the tree on.
 
Another one of my favorite traditions is Christmas Eve dinner at my aunt and uncles. Its always so much fun because its one of the few times every year that my whole family gathers. We exchange gifts, and take turns reading the Christmas story. Now that we are all grown up, things aren't as fun. But, now my generation is starting to have children, so we get to relive those fun moments we had as children.
 
Would love to hear all about your favorite Christmas traditions!

Touch of Velvet



| Top: Vince Camuto | Skirt: J Crew Factory | Heels: Michael Kors | Handbag: Chanel | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | 

Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! I decided to spend some time relaxing, spending time with family, and a lot of cleaning. A few weekends ago, I had my holiday party for work and I had absolutely nothing to wear... yes, I'm serious! So, this sparked my idea for a post of some ideas for holiday party attire. And what's great is, it even works as a NYE outfit too! 

I personally, love skirts. I actually use this one as work wear too. J Crew Factory has a really great selection of skirts that are really versatile. And if you couldn't already tell from all of the advertisements and such, but, velvet is all of the rage. This cute little velvet top paired perfectly with it. The whole outfit was under $100.

Funny back story behind these photos. My photographer and I have had people tell us we aren't supposed to take picture in this area but we snuck around back to get some in front of the Christmas tree anyways. I think its the fastest we've ever shot a look and I could barely keep from laughing the whole time! 

Thank you for stopping by!!

Ruffled Open Shoulder Top



| Top: Target (only $20) | Denim: Express | Booties: Just Fab | Handbag: Chanel, similar (and a lot cheaper!) | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | 

Happy Friday babes! Claps for the weekend! So glad that it's finally here. Unfortunately, I have to spend mine studying, but, I get to spend some quality time with my family. And my sweet pup of course. I swear he's turned into a teenager over night. Now that I'm back at work he seems to pout and act out every chance he gets. I love him to death, but, I'll be glad when the puppy/teenager phase is over with.

Okay, so about the outfit. This shirt is hands down my favorite right now. And y'all its only $20!! You seriously need this in your wardrobe. And to top it off, it hides all of the unwanted areas. And these jeans are so comfy and and I love the color. Express has so many great pairs on sale right now, I'm going back tomorrow to get another pair. 

Thank you for stopping by!
