Plaid always has me thinking of fall, but it also translates very well for the holiday season too. A favorite combo of mine, and one that you'll see again soon, is plaid and leopard. They're two prints that work effortlessly well together and look glam while doing it. This dress is perfection for the winter weather with long sleeves and a maxi style skirt. Very twirl worthy! The belt cinches in the waist to create an hourglass look. Without the belt, the dress is quite baggy. I got this leopard coat during the Black Friday sales. Oh my goodness, swoon worthy! It has a stunning red lining and keeps me so warm and toasty. I also like the longer length for skirts or dresses that are equally as long. To compliment the look, I choose red pumps and a green clutch to keep with the festive feeling. If there is a time when green and red work together, it's for the holidays. Otherwise, it can look too much like the holidays.

You many have noticed that I always wear my Jackie Kennedy rings, the unity bands, but I actually have quite a few pieces of the jewelry from her line. It's a line that is reproductions of the actual pieces she wore. I have on a pair of her earrings in this post too. With the movie Jackie out right now, an absolute must see for me, I thought I would make a little comment about the pieces I usually wear. If its an emerald piece, that usually means it was a gift from JFK. His birth stone (May 29th) was emerald and he typically would gift Jackie emeralds to remind her of him. Many of the pieces I have were ones that JFK had given her. That always felt more special to me and of course, I love JFK. The gold unity band I wear was actually given to Jackie by Bobby Kennedy as a thank you gift. The emerald unity band, given by JFK, was for their 10th wedding anniversary. The emerald earrings, which can detach and be worn as studs too, were given to Jackie by JFK for helping him with his presidential campaign. They were part of of three piece set originally.

It's been said that every women should have a go-to dress in her wardrobe, typically the lbd, but what about a stunning jewel tone color that is equally just as classic? This dress from Lookbook Store is feminine and sexy all rolled into one. Plus, it fits perfectly. It's always a happy surprise when clothes fit as if they were tailored for your body. I'm wearing a US 2. With it being the holiday season, the green color fits right in. I opted for a timeless red lip and sparkling gold accessories. I cannot tell you how many times I've grabbed this gold clutch. It really does go with everything! I've had it for a few years now and its basically the only formal clutch I use.

I've been looking to upgrade my sneaker game for quite some time now. I'm not usually one to wear sneaks, but when I do they're usually Keds. I wanted a pair that are luxe and still comfortable to wear because let's be honest, sneaks are the most comfortable shoes you can wear. When I saw this pair in a dusty rose color and glam velvet material, I knew I had found my ideal match. They fit true to size and are absolutely gorgeous in real life. I love love love being able to wear something that is both functional and fashionable. As a busy mom on the go, this is a HUGE plus! How stunning is this embellished collar sweater too?! A little embellishment goes a long way and adds the prettiest amount of eye catching sparkle. The ballerina pink color is super feminine too.

It's all in the details, darling! Embellishments are always on my radar whether they be a little ruffle, bow, sequin, or jeweled applique, embellishments often add that extra pizazz to make an outfit standout from the crowd. This skirt instantly caught me eye with its velvet trim around the waist, metal flower, chain detail and golden edges. It's a total knockout piece and one that's perfect for any holiday event. It's under $35 too making it an affordable addition to your wardrobe. I'm wearing a size small (the smallest available) but wish they had made an XS. The small was just slightly too big. It still fits fine, but I like my skirts to be very fitting.

Does anyone have any plans for the weekend? I know tonight I'll be watching the I Love Lucy Christmas special on CBS at 8pm EST. Lucy has always been my favorite show. That and Andy Griffith. Anyway, I need to find out when Charlie Brown will be on too. My mom and I had certain Christmas specials and movies that we would watch together every year and Charlie Brown was at the top of the list. Does anyone else have any certain Christmas shows/movies they must see each year?

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Hello, December! A new month means a new glossy box with the theme being glitz and glossy. Hey there holiday season! I'm so excited for all of the glitz and glamour that goes along with it. As a reminder, you can get glossy box for $21 per box each month with free shipping. There's nothing like getting five new luxury beauty products each month.

  • MDMflow Semi-matte Lipstick in Bossy: This semi-matte lipstick is jam packed with hydrating ingredients to keep lips from drying out which always happens to me in the winter. Ugh! The color is inspired by the street style of hip hop superstar Kelis. I would describe the shade as a nude taupe.
  • Kristais Cosmetics Diamond Select Anti-Gravity Spark Eye Mask: I haven't used this yet, but I'm planning on using it before some upcoming holiday events. The diamond powder works with the collagen and lavender oil which helps reduce sagging and provide hydration. No more tired eyes!
  • Luxie Beauty Onyx Noir Small Tapered Blending Brush: Blending eye shadow colors was never easier than with this precise brush. I think its important to note that Luxie Beauty is hypoallergenic, cruelty free, and all of their products are vegan.
  • MeMeMe Beat the Blue Skin Illuminator: This has to be my favorite item in the box this month. Obsessed! I'm all about adding a little glow to my daily makeup routine and who doesn't want to look their best for the holidays?! I used the brush to draw on some of the highlighter on the bridge of my nose, top of my cheekbones, cupids box, and on top of my brow bone. Simply use your finger then to blend.
  • Harajuku Lovers Pop Electric Eau de Parfum Spray by Gwen Stefani: I've actually been wanting to try Gwen Stefani's perfumes ever since they came out so I was pleasantly surprised to see one in this box! The vibrant colors of the bottles are eye catching while the pop art theme takes me back to the 1950s. Scents will vary between boxes.

Happy Wednesday, friends! I can hardly believe its the last day of November already. Seriously, where did the month go?! Wait, check that, where did this year go?? It's almost December which means tons of holiday festivities, fun, and cheer. I'm definitely looking forward to that. I mean, don't we all need a little cheer? I think so.

Now, onto the outfit. Personally, I'm a big fan of matchy-matchy ensembles. Monochromatic or matching prints feels sophisticated. Don't get me wrong, I also love mixing prints and color blocking too, which is trendy and cool, but matching has a classic feel about it. Think back to say the 1950s when you would buy a whole matching outfit. Everything matched and went together. That's where I pull most of my inspiration from. Below I have a few examples of some 1950s women's wear. A check or windowpane print never goes out of style, plus its incredibly easy to pair together or if you want to mix prints, try pairing it with plaid or leopard. The dress I have on is a thinner silky material so layering is a must for the colder weather. It does have sleeves, which is always a plus with dresses! I'm wearing an XS. The scarf is hiding it, but the dress also has a mock neck. I'm kind of obsessed with mock or turtleneck styles right now.

One color I've been crushing on lately is camel. It pairs with literally anything and is the perfect neutral to wear throughout the year. It's a good color to buy some staple items in (think coats, bags, sweaters) seeing as how it never goes out of style and always feels classically cool. For instance, this camel topcoat, which I've been wearing non-stop (size XXS) is polished and a staple item to carry you through the fall and winter seasons. It works for a night out on the town, at the office, running weekend errands, basically anything you can think of. I initially was only going to pair white with camel for this look, but found these beautiful embellished touch technology gloves at a local boutique called BRASHhh in Rehoboth Beach and could not resist. The rosy blush color is another one of my favorites for the season!

Happy Cyber Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. My dad, Ava, and I took a weekend trip to Rehoboth Beach for their annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony. It's always such a fun and festive event with everyone filled to the brim with Christmas cheer. After gathering around the tree everyone sings carols for about half an hour and then the tree is lit. This was the outfit I wore for the festivities. Luckily, the weather turned out to be very mild which meant only some layering was needed during the day. A fun little tidbit, try layering your vest over your blazer instead of under.  I'm also loving this new Karl Lagerfeld watch. Blue and rose gold are one of my favorite color combos and you can never go wrong with some cool sophistication. Above are some of the Cyber Monday deals going on right now from companies that I'm constantly wearing!

I've been using OSEA skincare products for a few months now and my skin has never looked better. I've shared my skin issues before on here and feel its important to continue to update and let everyone know what has and has not worked for me. With winter on the horizon and the holidays right around the corner, it's important to refresh your routine to make sure you're getting the most out of your skincare products for the weather you're experiencing. I know I want my skin to be bright and clear for all of the holiday events/parties coming up and also to be moisturized with the harsh weather. If you have a friend or loved one that likes vegan skincare or simply skincare products in general, these would make excellent gifts, especially the mists. Some new products I've recently tried from OSEA are pictured above and listed below:

  • Brightening Serum: I use this on my entire face every morning. It feels so lightweight going on and instantly sinks into the skin. Serums are one of my favorite products to use because of the intensity of the ingredients. It's an instant boost! I do wish it came in a larger container, but this stuff definitely works. I noticed a slight lightening of some red leftover acne marks. From their website, "This ultra lightweight serum contains potent botanicals that help to visibly brighten your complexion, diminish the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, and create the appearance of a more even skin tone. Vitamin-rich ingredients such as Indian Gooseberry, Cumin, Japanese Matsutake Mushroom and Bearberry give your complexion a refined, radiant look."
  • White Algae Mask: You can use this mask as either an overnight treatment or for 10-20 minutes before you rinse it off. Once a week I would wear this to bed and then again during the week I'd wear it for about 1 hour. The mask tingles a bit as you put it on and then dries to a very light white-green color. What I love about this mask is that my skin does not feel tight and dry when I take it off, but rather looks refreshed. From their website, "This age-defying, antioxidant mask instantly improves the appearance of dull, uneven complexions and delivers long lasting hydration. Formulated with White Algae, White Wine, and White Tea to visibly diminish redness and surface inflammation for a brighter, more luminous look."
  • Seam Minerals Mist (Green): Whenever my skin would start to feel dry, I would spritz this on. Usually I would spritz this on top of my makeup part way through the day. It feels nice and refreshing and even gives my makeup some new life. From their website, "This refreshing elixir delivers immediate hydration to dry, depleted skin. Organic Patagonian Seaweed, Dead Sea Salt, and Aloe Vera neutralize surface impurities and diminish the appearance of inflammation and redness on the surface of skin."
  • Sea Vitamin Boost (Red): This mist and the serum are my favorite products from the bunch. I would spray this after I applied my moisturizer and before my makeup. I'd let it sink in for about 5-10 minutes before putting my makeup on. That gives your skin an extra glow! Then I would use this at night after my moisturizer. From their website, "This refreshing, rose-hued spray delivers an immediate feeling of hydration and instant fresh glow to dry, sun-damaged skin. Visibly reduces the appearance of signs of aging associated with dry skin and dry climates."

A few months back I partnered up with Headbands Of Hope to bring awareness to their cause. For every item sold on their website, one headband is given to a child with cancer. Here is the first post from back in June. I feel very honored to be able to participate again and hope that new and old readers alike will get behind and support this wonderful cause. They believe that fashion can be the greatest vehicle to positive self-identity and I could not agree more. That belief is the driving force behind my personal style and one of my goals for creating and continuing this blog. The happiness on the children's faces when they receive a headband brings joy into my heart and knowing that such a simple act of kindness really does make a difference in the world. Since their creation in April 2012, Headbands Of Hope has donated headbands to every children's hospital in the U.S. That is quite a remarkable feat if you ask me. Lastly, my heart is absolutely melting over Ava having a matching floral headband to mine. Mommy and me posts are my favorite.

Happy Monday, friends and happy Thanksgiving week! Over this past weekend we had some crazy weather. Saturday it went from a beautiful fall day with highs in the 70s to overnight temps dropping and staying in the 30s with snow in toe. Seems like winter is here now, though I hope fall pops her head back in every now and then until winter is supposed to be here. Knowing this weather change was coming, we made sure to get out Saturday and really enjoy the last hurrah of the nice weather. We went to New Hope and Peddlers Village for the day to walk around the main streets with shops and restaurants. New Hope has a beautiful walking path that we strolled along until sunset. Absolutely gorgeous scenery. Peddlers Village was all decorated with Christmas lights too! Truly a fantastic and magical site to see.

Speaking of the holidays and it being Thanksgiving week, this outfit is another option for a dressier look you can wear for Thanksgiving. The creamy crochet top adds some beautiful texture while being cozy enough to cuddle up in. Its a bit heavier making it more like a sweater, but still very light to wear. The crochet detailing wraps around to the back and has a pretty scalloped fringe hemline, great for showing off with some skinny jeans. The neutral colors feel fancy, especially with the tulle skirt, which always has an element of whimsy to it. Along with this look being a Thanksgiving option, this would also work for a date night or fun out with the girls.

Happy Friday, friends! l don't know about you, but I love being cozy and comfy during Thanksgiving dinner. You can dress up or down for the holiday, but in recent years I've gone with a cozy glam look. An outfit where I can eat a ton of good food and not feel uncomfortable in! This beaded sweater is beautiful with a subtle blush color and dazzling embellishments that catch the eye. I'm wearing an XS and found the fit to be relaxed. Not too loose or tight. It's also a great option for adding some sophistication to your work wardrobe. The sweater could be tucked into a skirt or worn with some trousers to add a little glitz to your day. I've been wearing these glitter mules non-stop. They are one of the most comfortable shoes I own and are a true show stopper. I've received so many compliments on them and people asking where they're from. You know they're a winner when that happens! They are the perfect finishing touch, the icing on the cake to add some vintage glamour any ensemble. The feathery pompom on top is beyond cute. They fit true to size.

Sometimes an ensemble comes together so beautifully and you think it was just meant to be. This outfit has a glam touch that really pops! The black sheer lace top has a high neck profile with scalloped eyelash edges. I'm kind of obsessed with this top! It's very ladylike and elegant all rolled into one and the quality is top notch. Peeking out from behind the delicate lace top is a blush pink halter bralette. The top does come with a nude cami underneath that is detachable if you wish. I wanted to add that extra fun layer that while subtle, still takes the outfit to another level. The bralette is a great option is you have any sheer tops or backless ones. The leopard coat is so striking against the black and bright pink color combo. It's the perfect mix of glam meets lady. The coat is on the lighter side so it wouldn't be a good choice for extreme winter weather, but rather mild cooler temps. There is a very limited quantity of the coat left online, but I did get mine in the actual store where they had a good amount so I would check there first. Also, I recently got a new lip color called "Ava" that I've been wearing non-stop. I originally got it because of the name, hello my little love bug!, but beyond that it's an extremely lipstick with a pigment-rich color that goes on silky smooth and is jam packed with jojoba and sweet almond oil.

***** You can get 35% off of the lace bralette at Humblechic.com  with the code AMANDAB until the end of the year! I'm so in love with the company and there are a ton of fab gifts you can get for your friends, loved ones, or even yourself! Some other favorite items that I've worn recently that you can get 35% off on are this plaid dress, this pink plaid scarf, these faceted square earrings (wear them ALL the time!), and this long pearl necklace.

This is without a doubt one of my favorite outfits that I've worn recently. I keep thinking back to how magical the whole ensemble felt. Each little embellishment adds a bit of whimsy that makes my heart flutter. The layered tulle skirt is the showstopper in the most feminine way. I'm wearing a US 0 for reference. We've been having some amazing weather lately, mid 50s in November!, but I find wearing a midi or maxi style skirt is great for the cooler weather. The extra length keeps you warm while still looking effortlessly chic. How adorable is the bow fascinator too?! The glitter heels, along with the baublebar star drop earrings and bracelet set all add that extra little sparkle as if being the frosting on the cake. The perfect little topper to finish off the girly look. I'm wearing a 37 (US 6.5) for reference with the heels. They're in European sizes, but fit true to size.

Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I went to go see Inferno with Tom Hanks and let's be honest, Tom Hanks is good is anything he does. Doctor Strange is next on my movie list! I also got some holiday prep shopping done at Target too, which its always good to get a head start on those things. Items like wrapping paper, gift bags, tissue paper, and labels. All the necessities to make your gifts look pretty. My dad and I also attended the Holiday Tea at Hillside on Saturday. They host the event in an old mansion on the farming land with Christmas decorations, yummy treats, and of course your choice of tea, egg nog, or wassel. The fireplace is always lit and feels so cozy to sit by. I look forward to the holiday tea every year and find it to be so relaxing and a great way to get into the holiday spirit!

I actually wore this outfit on election day last Tuesday. I was also very sick and felt like I was dragging myself through the day. In any case, this studded jacket definitely has some rocker vibes to it, which was fun for me since I do not traditionally dress that way. That's one of the things I love about fashion, there are so many different styles out there that you can have fun playing around with. While I do not usually do not do punk or rock types of styles, I can still put my own spin on the look and be more comfortable wearing it. I'm wearing a size US 2 in the jacket for reference. The only thing I'm not crazy about with the jacket are the padded shoulders. They add too much bulk in that area.

One trend that is continuing on into the fall and holiday/winter season are tassel accessories. These tassel drop earrings from Bauble Bar are seriously cute and extremely well made! I went with the gray coloring, but they also have cobalt blue, pink, purple, black, and silver. I want them all! The colors and light catching effects are head turning and a fun take on the trend. These would make a great gift for any fashionista!

I took Ava over to Washington's Headquarters (the photos were taken at the train station a few feet away) where she could play and frolock in the leaves that had fallen to the ground. There was this beautiful golden yellow tree that had dropped a good amount of leaves and that's where we spent most of our time. It's also where the last photo here was taken. She really enjoyed herself! I also met some lovely people who also ended up being photographers. The one, Mike, had offered to take some photos of Ava and I with my camera for me. Thank you so much again Mike!! He took this last photo and absolutely captured the whole feeling of our trip. Diane was also taking some photos that day and ended up capturing some candid shots of Ava and I in the leaves. Thanks again for sending those along to me Diane!

This outfit is a glam version of your everyday casuals. That's what some metallic accessories will do for you! My favorite metallic has always been rose gold. It's a great alternative to yellow or white gold with your jewelry too. This bomber jacket is made from a quality satin and is fully lined. It was perfect for keeping me warm and stylish on a fall day. I actually never took it off the whole day. I'm wearing a US2 for reference. The best part? It's under $30! I've seen some other rose gold bomber jackets that are much higher priced and look exactly the same.

One of my favorite trips that my dad and I take each year is to Valley Forge. The national park is beyond beautiful with scenic views every where you turn. I am always at peace when I visit the park and find it to be so relaxing. Only a few minutes down the road is the famous King of Prussia mall and shopping district. You would never know there is a city or even a larger one (Philadelphia) nearby when you're actually at the park. It's a world onto itself.  I have a very special place in my heart for the area since Justin and I had lived nearby early in our relationship and then my dad and I started taking this weekend trip for his podiatry seminars.

The weather for the trip was insanely gorgeous. Clear blue sapphire skies with the golden sun shinning down creating warm days that are usually hard to find in November. A simple blazer was enough to be comfortable throughout the day. I wanted a relaxed weekend country look for being around the park using a red, pink, and blue color combo. An easy way to layer that isn't too bulky is to start with a tissue thin turtleneck followed by a button down shirt either tucked in or not. Top that off with a blazer and you're all set!

It's no surprise that my love for all things pink runs deep, but I especially love pairing my favorite color with blue. These blue suede booties are everything I could dream of. The suede feel luxurious, while the heel does not feel too high for everyday walking. I did size up 1/2 a size and found that to be best. I'm also pretty excited about this pom pom sweater. Sweater weather is definitely here and why not wear a fun little detail with them?! This scarf from Avvolto is actually brown with a pink border. That makes it great for layering and matching with a variety of outfits. Pink and brown go with so many different colors! It also has a soft eyelash fringe along the bottom. A darling little detail. How sparkly fab are these star drop earrings and rock stud ring?! I've always been quite impressed with the designs and quality of Baublebar's jewelry and these items are certainly no different. These earrings are particularly wonderful for the upcoming holiday season. They're certainly merry and bright as well as being able to wear them with literally anything. The rock stud ring is adjustable to fit and each stone used for the ring is unique so the size, shape, and color may vary. Who doesn't love being unique?!

I've always known that Aveda had hair care products, especially since some salons I've been to specialize in just Aveda items, but I had not realized how expansive their product line is ranging from not only hair, but also body care, makeup, skin care, aroma, and items for men. For those of you who are not familiar with the brand, Aveda uses naturally derived ingredients whenever possible. They deliver high performance, botanically based products, while continuing their promise of environmental and social responsibility. Aveda's products are formulated without parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, and are certified organic. I love knowing that what I'm putting on my skin or using in my hair is not harmful to me or to the environment. 

I was pretty excited when I saw that Aveda carries a makeup line, as well as body care, that I could try out. Their fall/winter line is called Foklor with dark and sheer colors that accent eyes and moisturize and plump lips. I was impressed with the quality of the products and especially loved the hand cream, which has a nice light scent to it. I've been searching for a new one since this weather has taken a toll on my skin and started drying me out. Happens every year! Its important to switch up your skin care routine once the seasons start to change. I'll be doing a post on that soon. I almost always never wear a dark shade on my eyes, but loved these colors and how they created a beautiful smoky eye, perfect for the upcoming holiday parties! The gold eye liner pencil was a particular favorite of mine. It's fantastic to accent and highlight the inner eye and to lightly highlight the middle of the eye lid.
