Happy EARLY Thanksgiving! I know next week is Thanksgiving but I for one have already started outfit planning for the Holidays and deciding what I want to buy my friends and family for Christmas! It is really just around the corner! I partnered with Vixity Jewelry to bring together the perfect Holiday Look. When dressing for a Holiday Party or event I really love incorporating jewel tones. I got these gorgeous Charles David booties from Nordstrom and I thought they were the perfect Holiday boot! They can be dressed up or down and the burgundy color is surprisingly versatile. I absolutely LOVE this necklace and earrings set from Vixity Jewelry. Check out their site for even more beautiful pieces and gift ideas!

Happy Friday everyone! With the weather being a little blah this week, I honestly didn’t feel like getting all that dressed up! I decided to post a look that is super casual and comfy. It is the perfect look to run errands over the weekend! I found these amazing Adidas sneakers recently and have to say I am obsessed. They are super comfy and go with everything. I also love that they are only $80! I wanted to style the outfit around the sneakers and thought a white slouchy sweater, leather jacket, and statement scarf would do the trick :)! I found this awesome scarf online at nordstrom rack. It’s only $24.99 and super warm and cozy! I find that I can pair it with almost everything! I hope you guys like my casual post. If you do, please leave a comment below :)!

This weekend was absolutely GORGEOUS in NYC. I had a blast playing on the streets of Manhattan shooting this look. I bought this shirt-dress at H&M for only $30 the other day and couldn’t wait to style it. I love a shirt dress because it is so versatile! It can be worn over jeans, leggings, or a skirt or worn open to add a cool extra layer to a basic look. Sadly, this specific one is already sold out but I linked similar styles for you all below. I also have been really into rocking my white jeans all year long. The rules are changing and white is no longer for the 4 short months of summer! I say rock your whites!!!

THANKSGIVING GO-TO

Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 12.06.29 PM

With Thanksgiving coming RIGHT around the corner, I wanted to put together a look that would be perfect for the occasion. When dressing for Thanksgiving, I of course want to look polished, but I also must wear something loose fitting to accommodate my growing belly throughout my meal 🙂 which is why I chose this adorable red tunic sweater. I paired it with leather leggings and chic over the knee boots to give it a bit more of a dressy appeal. Finally, topping it off with this shawl cape and wool hat pulls it together! What do you guys think?

If you have been following my blog from the start, you guys must think all I do is “Jess-up” or dress-up! This was brought to my attention when I asked one of my girlfriend’s if there was a look she wanted to see on the blog and she told me to feature something less dressy…So Ms. Potts…here you go ;)! I bought this sweater last winter before the tragic loss of my beloved C. Wonder store. I am not sure if any of you shopped at that store but it sadly closed! It was literally my favorite. Anyways, I would make my husband come with me every day during their closeout and did my best to stock up on literally as much C.Wonder apparel I could get my hands on!!! Ok, enough about C. Wonder! HA! This Fair-Isle patterned sweater was one of my favorite buys and I am thrilled because every retailer is copying it now. So just because you can’t buy this exact one doesn’t mean you can’t shop my look :)! I paired it with my favorite Express skinny jeans and Charles David Booties. The purse I actually bought at a street fair in Venice, Italy which I found on Ebay! If you aren’t into Ebay, I linked out similar options too! Let me know what you think!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! Boy am I THRILLED it’s the weekend :)! One of my favorite places to shop is T.J. Maxx. I have been shopping there since I can remember! One of my first “words” was “Chessy-Smacks,” not because I loved Cheesy Smacks, but because I couldn’t actually say “T.J. Max” and that was as close as I could get! Hah! I say that because I found this adorable plaid dress there and was so excited to style it. They don’t have it online anywhere I can find, but did you know that you can shop online from T.J. Max now?! I linked a few similar styles so you guys can still shop the look :). Ok, enough about T. J. Maxx! I also wanted to talk about this awesome red coat! I recommend everyone have a statement coat in their wardrobe. You can throw it over a pair of jeans and flats or over a cute dress like I did here, and it always looks polished and chic! My sweet hubby picked this fire-engine red coat out for me and Icouldn’t love it more. Just pair it with a red lip and you are ready for anything ;)!

What do you guys think?

FUR-SUEDED

Happy #humpday lovelies! Animal prints and fabrics are all the rage this season, and I have to say I am a huge fan of the trend. That said, you don’t have to wear real fur to rock it! Example 1: This amazing faux fur vest from Asos! So cute right? I also fell in love with this suede dress by Zara and couldn’t wait to style it. Personally, I am waiting for it to go on sale before I buy it, but this is my way of dreaming about how I will style it once it does :)!!! What do you guys think? 🙂

This fall I have really gotten into skirts. All of my favorite retailers have been coming out one after the other with amazing skirts! I absolutely HATE being cold (I think it’s the southerner in me) so I have taken it upon myself to really take advantage of the cool (yet bearable) temperatures and to embrace “the skirt.” I have also fallen in love with the houndstooth pattern this season and even rocked it here in this look. Finally, how cute is this mini bucket bag from Ann Taylor?! It is only $39 and 50%  off the sale price so make sure to scoop it up! What do you guys think?

Happy Hump Day lovelies! We are half way through the week and that means it’s time for a new look to share with you all! If you follow me on Instagram you have seen that I am slightly obsessed with these Sam Edelman leopard booties. Don’t worry though if you aren’t a high heels lover-I added a similar pair in a lower heel :). This season is all about leopard and I love that it has become the new neutral! I wanted to create a look around these shoes and when I came across this Armani Exchange top I was inspired :)! A pop of purple with the leopard made this “rocker chic” look one of my faves!

What do you guys think? Leave a comment if you like it :)!
