Draped Sweater & Lace


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Gobble gobble, nom nom!







Is anyone doing Black Friday shopping tomorrow or should I say, tonight? It is crazy how stores are opening tonight! I used to go join the madness and shop on Black Friday, but ended up with random things that I didn't want in the first place. This year, we're making a trip down to LA to visit family and eat yummy food!

I wanted to congratulate Christine S. for winning my Cuore & Pelle giveaway! I hope you enjoy your new handbag! And if you have not already, check out my current giveaway here!

Polka Dots & Scarf Giveaway! (Closed)


Layering is one of my favorite ways to put together outfits for the cold weather and a chambray shirt is one of the easiest items to work with. They compliment almost any color and here I styled one under a polka dot sweater and added a statement necklace to finish it off.

Pink & Leopard








The holidays are just around the corner and I am super excited for secret santa with my girl friends. We have been doing it every year for as long as I can recall and it brings us closer together every time. We don't all live in the same city, so our secret santa event gives us a great excuse to get dolled up, spend hours catching up, and reminisce. 

This outfit is a combination of a few of my favorite things: leopard, peplum, and pleated skirts. What I love about this pairing is that its fairly simple to reassemble and I hope itt gives you inspiration for your upcoming holiday looks!
