It’s almost the weekend everybody!!! I feel like I always say this when I post towards the end of the week but I just love my weekends spent with my hubby in the city :). I thought I would feature a look that is a little more conservative. Sometimes I have to remind myself that not everyone lives in NYC and is as willing to take as many fashion risks, so I put together a look that would work no matter where you live. I found this jumper at Banana Republic last season and I love it. It can go through all seasons which I really appreciate in a dress. Sadly it is no longer available but I found two identical styles both under $150! For a dress that works through multiple seasons I think it is worth the investment! I decided to keep it simple with a black turtleneck, tights and these amazing over the knee boots!

What do you think?

It’s the Holiday season! Which means it is time for gift-giving! I LOVE giving gifts but the problem with loving to give gifts is that I have a personal competition with myself to be more creative every year! This year, I discovered the Nordstrom.com gift tab and I am so thrilled. I literally can find something for everyone on my list! This list is for the lady in your life. Each gift is under $50 too which is another gift in and of itself! I hope you like the items on my gift list!

Happy Friday Lovelies!! I hope you all had a great week. I had the MOST stressful and busy week. When I get busy, I sadly have a lot less time to put together looks. When I get too busy to put something together, my go-to is and has always been to wear all black. Black matches black and it is slimming…so naturally it is my go-to. For this look, I paired my favorite black A.G. Jeans with a pair of booties, black belt and sweater for a chic yet comfy look. I tried to upgrade it by adding a pair of Ray Bans and this awesome new lipstick I just bought by Milani that you can find at most pharmacies! I hope you guys like my look!

Let me know what you think in the comments below :)!

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!! What are you thankful for?! I am thankful for so so many things and it would be tough to list them all so I’ll just stick with the big ones…my husband, my family, my friends, and those of you who follow my blog :)! It has been a dream of mine to start this blog and your support means so much to me! Ok, enough love game for today…let’s get into the styling portion of today’s post! How cute is this dress?! I had been looking for a dress just like this all season and finally found one by Ralph Lauren sold at Macy’s. There is a black Friday sale making this dress only $91!!!! The style is so simple and classy yet still elevated and fancy. I paired this dress with a basic black heel and opaque tights, red lip and a high pony! I think it is the perfect dress to wear to a family gathering like Thanksgiving or even a Holiday Party! What do you guys think?!

Happy Monday Lovelies! I hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to the Holiday! I know I am!! I wanted to feature a few looks this week to give you guys some ideas as to what to wear for Thanksgiving. I am all about functionality with my fashion. When thinking about dressing for Thanksgiving I want something that will let me literally eat whatever I want while I don’t have to worry about sucking in haha! I found this poncho at T. J. Maxx for $20 and I knew I wanted to style it! It is such a statement piece so I chose all black as to not go overboard with the pattern or color. I chose a simple black turtleneck and black high waisted leggings. You can’t really see in the picture, but I am wearing my most favorite over-the-knee boots by Charles David. I can’t recommend them enough! They are amazing! I will be posting one more look this week before Thanksgiving-I hope you like this one! Let me know in the comments below!

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 :)!
