A Dressy Holiday Look

December 6, 2017





{Outfit Details}
Dress: Dillard's (here, on sale for just UNDER $30! Runs TTS) // Heels: DSW (here, $40! Every girl needs a pair of black pumps!) // Tights: c/o Berkshire (here, only $8.25 on sale!! In love with these) // Belt: Target (here) // Clutch: Purple Peridot (exact one here, love this one here and here)

Happy Wednesday beautiful readers!

The Christmas Countdown is ON, y'all!! Only 19 days left!! So, I thought it would be appropriate to post a Christmas-inspired outfit post this evening!

I picked this dress up way back in September and enjoyed wearing it out to a nice dinner on our Charleston trip (read about our trip HERE) back in October. As the seasons have changed, I thought it would make THE perfect dress for a holiday party! As I have shared on Instagram (follow me HERE), you know how much I LOVE olive green! It makes for a lovely color for a Christmas-inspired look! 

To change my look up a little bit from what I wore in Charleston and this fall, I wanted to add these beautiful tights! I always like to keep in mind ACCESSORIES for any outfit. They can seriously change a look like none other! When looking for what accessories to add to an outfit, remember patterned tights like the ones I am wearing are a great option to change up your look. The vertical stripes on these elongate your legs as well, which is another added bonus if you are short like me (I am 5'3 and 1/2 for reference haha)!!! I also added one of my fave belts and leopard print clutch to add even more to this outfit. Whenever you go out, this would be lovely with a coat over (I am thinking a faux fur leopard print one! How fun!)

I have SO enjoyed y'alls responses on my polls I have posted over on my Instastories, and will be working on those gift guides ASAP to post! I hope y'all have a great rest of your week!

XOXO

Red & Green Remix

December 3, 2017







{Outfit Details}
Dress: H&M (here, also available in black! Only $29.99) //  Moto Jacket: Old Navy (available HERE, limited sizes in this color but 2 other colors available in more sizes; also love these maroon ones here for $44.99 with code "YOUGET25" and this one here for under $40!) // OTK boots: Target (here, size up 1/2 a size! The color in person is a little more grayish brown than it appears online, just a heads up! Very versatile though!) // Leopard Print Clutch: Purple Peridot (my exact one HERE for only $32.39! Also love this one here with the cute tassel and here with the asymmetrical zipper)

Happy December, friends! Also...Happy Sunday! Who else is excited -but also can't believe - that it's finally December?! The LAST month of the year before 2018!! Unbelievable how fast time flies (I have said that literally a billion times but it seems more true with each passing day!). Anyway, I hope y'all had an amazing weekend! We officially have our place all decorated for Christmas and enjoyed our first Christmas activity (a parade in downtown Chattanooga) this weekend! 

So - who else is as obsessed with jewel tones as I am!? I just love the contrast of the deep burgundy with the dark green in my outfit above. These shades contrast yet compliment each other so well. I called this post "red + green remix" because this outfit reminded me of Christmas with the red & green shades, but it's definitely a "remix" by using the jewel tones! 

This jacket is one of my faves from Old Navy. I bought it back in September, and its stock keeps coming and going online - plus they always have sales. Keep checking back though because they do keep restocking it (right now, only available in limited sizes) - but it is available in navy!! My dress is from my fave H&M and is ONLY $30! It is seriously one of my favorites and I may need it in black too -haha! I just got these boots in the mail, and I absolutely love them! I have the heeled version in black, but the neutral shade of these is making its way as one of my new faves!!! 

XOXO
