Festive Flair

IMG_5430IMG_5473IMG_5421IMG_5441IMG_5423IMG_5481

Hey everyone, happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving Weekend!  In case you missed it, I launched the first set of my gift guides on Saturday, and also wrote about the perfect holiday gift I found for B here!

Today, since the holiday season is in full swing, I wanted to incorporate small amounts of festive flair without feeling overwhelmed by it (since I can hardly believe November is almost over!)  The bright green of the sweater and the bow detail on the back make it perfect for a slow embrace of the Christmas spirit!

Casual Thanksgiving Outfit

IMG_5175IMG_5186IMG_5165IMG_5176

Hello everyone, welcome back!  Today I’m sharing a little Thanksgiving outfit inspiration.  If you have a more casual gathering (or a Friendsgiving!), a simple sweater and colored pants make a nice and easy ensemble, with a fun pair of leopard booties making the statement.

Halloween Inspired Date Night Outfit

IMG_4215IMG_4227IMG_4311IMG_4291

Happy Friday my friends!  I can’t believe it’s already October 20th!  I find that October is always a super busy month, so B and I had to make sure we fit some one on one date time in between all of the scheduled activities.  My birthday is the day before Halloween and I have always felt drawn to the October color palette as a result.  During the rest of the year I don’t usually pair orange with black, but if there were ever a perfect time to do it it’s ten days before Halloween!

Tropical Textures

 

IMG_9714IMG_9721 (1)

Welcome back, loves!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I’m so excited that the weather is finally consistently warm out that I’ve been celebrating the only way I know how – shopping for new clothes to wear on patios and rooftops, clearly.

This beautiful Banana Republic skirt instantly caught my eye.  I love the length, the pleats, the pattern, and the colors.  I chose to pair it first with a lace top, to add some nice textures to mix up my look.  To make it more work appropriate, just add a pair of closed toe heels and a navy blazer!

Primary

IMG_0610IMG_0644IMG_0619

Welcome back everyone!  I hope you all had a great week and an exciting weekend ahead.  I’ve been dying to put together an outfit of entirely primary colors for I don’t even know how long, so I was thrilled when this one came together the way I hoped it would.  But then again, my legs are still winter white and I ate Chick-Fil-A before shooting so… Can’t win ’em all, I guess.

Be Mine

img_9141img_9153img_9132

Welcome back my friends!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Today I’m sharing one more Valentine’s Day look for you all.  As you can tell I’m not a huge fan of going all out with my outfit and I love incorporating black in to tone it down (like I did in this post on Friday).  This dress is a new arrival from Banana Republic’s spring collection and I know it will look beautiful in a few months by itself in warmer weather!

Outfit Details – Dress: Banana Republic | Jacket: Topshop | Tights: J.Crew Factory | Mules: Express | Earrings: Treasure&Bond (sold out, similar here) | Lips: Nars ‘Cruising’, Urban Decay ‘Lovechild’

Thanks for reading!  Do you guys have any exciting plans for Valentine’s Day tomorrow?!

Shoutout to Mom

img_8343img_8367

This outfit is what I like to call “channelling my mother 101”.  When I was younger my mom always wore red and black together and she always looked put together, but red and black was always one of her go to color combinations.  I vividly remember a friend’s mom picking me up from my house one day while my mom was playing basketball in the driveway with my younger brother.  She was rocking red jeans and a leather jacket and still managing to run after my Energizer Bunny of a brother.  The aforementioned friend’s mom told me that my mom always looked stylish no matter what she was doing, and I promptly saved this story in my head right next to the time she wouldn’t let me wear pajamas to school.

When I saw this bright red sweater at Banana Republic, I instantly fell in love with it.  With no sparkles or embellishments, it transitions well past the holiday season, through Valentine’s Day and even beyond.  The first time I went to wear it, I opened my denim drawer and was instantly drawn to classic black skinny jeans.  Finally, I slid my feet into these booties, which have a perfect pointy toe to add some style to a monochrome look.  When I looked at the finished product I couldn’t help but chuckle because I looked exactly like my mother.
