New Years Eve Outfits 2016...


How is it possible that New Years Eve is this weekend?! With the craziness of the Christmas season, somehow NYE always just sneaks up on me. It's might be this week but it's not too late to find that perfect outfit for a fun night out on the town. 

My NYE will probably look a little more like jeans and a sweatshirt because Conner and I are going up to a lake house but if I was getting dressed up I would definitely wear these things. I mean how amazing are these adorable black dresses with fun detailing (lace, velvet or even a metallic detailing). I also think these  blush pink velvet heels are to DIE for! I will have everything linked down below so it makes your NYE outfit shopping super easy :) 

On another note, with the new years brings the exciting 1 year anniversary of :) The first post I ever put up was on January 1st of 2016.  I'm thinking of putting together a year in review post and then a post all about my goals for 2017, BUT I would love to know what all you would like to see! Leave me a comment down below with ideas or posts that you think would be helpful. 

Hope you all had an amazing Christmas Holiday with your families and loved ones.

How to Style Oversized Clothing...


Oversized Clothing has definitely become more of a trend within the past couple of years, seems like it did ever since leggings really became an everyday thing. I personally am a fan of large clothing, I'm known as the queen of "loose and flowy"".

I'm talking big shirts, oversized sweatshirts and sweaters, coats, you name it and I probably love it.   Even my mom tells me that somehow it "always works on me but never on her".  But I'm here today to tell you that anyone can wear loose, oversized clothing.

I love this sweater because it was super cozy, Lulu's always has amazing sweaters because they're trendy but they're also pretty affordable.  The biggest key to wearings oversized tops is form fitting bottoms! It's essential because othersize you will look a few sizes larger, it helps to balance out your outfit.

I always go for a nice pair of leggings with a baggy sweater or a pair of skinny jeans with a looser top. Whatever it is, you just need the right accessories and a form fitting pair of bottoms.

Sidenote- how amazing are these velvet flats that I got on Lulu's as well?

Hope you all are having an amazing Holiday season & enjoying plenty of time with your family!

With Love,

I linked a bunch of other oversized sweaters options down below :) 

Perfect Holiday Party Outfit...


Ahhh Holiday Parties... whether it's for work or just fun with friends there is always the question of what to wear? Do you dress up or keep it more casual? Should you wear heels or is that too much? 

I came across this dilemma when I was trying to decide what to wear for my work Holiday party. I wanted to be comfortable because I knew I would be working long hours for that event but I also wanted to be festive and cute.

I love this dress because it's fun with the little ruffle shoulders but also would be acceptable with a cardigan for many offices or formal events. I thought by dressing it up with this J Crew Factory statement necklace and a few gold bracelets it would give it a festive feel. If you wanted to dress it up even more than a pair of higher heels would definitely be the move.

Below I'm going to include a few other fun and festive Holiday dresses for any fancy event or maybe even for New Years Eve? Let me know your go to outfit for a Holiday Party?

Holiday Gift Ideas Under $50...


1. Stila Liquid Lipstick Gift Set- I got a Holiday set with these liquid lipsticks and let me tell you.. they are AMAZING! Would highly reccomend because the colors are beautiful and they last super long. 

2. Bauble Bar Earrings- With so many fun events during the Holiday Season and into the new year, any girl would love a fun pair of Bauble Bar earings to spice up her outfit. I thought these were fun and would be perfect for New Years Eve.

3. Free People Beanie- I never knew I loved Pom Pom beanies until I tried one last year. This is a great gift because it's super practical (depending on where you live!) and cozy. Also I thought the color was cute because it's more feminine for those girly girls in your life :) 

4. Sole Society Cross Body Bag- Ladies, if you love expesnive bags like I do than you're in luck because this is totally an affordable dupe for a popular Chloe bag. It's also just super pratical for a college student going out with friends or a mom who wants her hands free during errands.

5. S'well Water Bottle- Pretty self explanatory but when they say your water stays cold forever they aren't kidding! Plus the Marble design doesn't hurt, it's so so cute! 

6. Sonix Phone- I love the idea of giving a phone case for Christmas because it's a pretty affordable gift and who really wants to spend money on a new case? I don't know about you but I would rather buy a new sweater or accessories than a phone case yet obvioulsy you need one to protect your phone! 

7. Free People Tee- I love a good peplum and this tee defintely fits the bill. It would be adorable with a pair of leggings and a cardigan or dressed up with a fun statement necklace.

Hope you enjoyed this post & it helps you with your Christmas shopping for a friend, mom or maybe even a little something for yourself!

Cozy Winter Outfit & The Christmas Tree Farm...


This outfit was one of my favorites because it was so warm & cozy. I found this turtle neck sweater when I was at Nordstroms with my mama and loved it! I paired it with Red Hunter boots (I got mine at for a huge discount!!) because I wanted to be festive for picking out our christmas tree & a cozy scarf because it was chilly up on the hilltop. I couldn't fin my exact scarf but I thinked a few similar ones at the bottom.

Getting the christmas tree is one of my favorite traditions with my family.  Since I can remember, we always drive to a family owned Christmas Tree Farm near Newark, Ohio to pick out our tree. Every year my brother & I try to convince the family that we need a 12+ foot tall Christmas tree and the last couple of years we have suceeded.  The trip always ends with candy canes and Christmas music on our drive home.  

Funny little side not about our tree this year, it actually ended up falling over because the hole didn't get cut straight on the bottom so now we have dumbell weights attached to the back of our tree to keep it fro falling over again!! It's a little funny looking but it makes for some fun and interesting Christmas memories :) I would love to know what some of your favorite Christmas memories are, feel free to leave a comment down below! 

Hope you enjoyed this post! I'm hoping to have a few fun posts throughout the Holiday season since it is such an exciting time of year! 

Love Always,
