An Elegant Affair


Julie Brown NYC Coat c/o || Julie Brown NYC Dress c/o || Just Fab Shoes c/o (Old, Similar Here) || Vintage Clutch (Similar Here) || Jackie Kennedy Cascade Ring || Stella & Dot Ring || 

Happy Friday, everyone! I cannot even begin to tell you how elegantly glamorous this ensemble made me feel. This jacket is so dreamy and perfect for any holiday party or formal occasion. Even just a fancy night out on the town! It features three quarter sleeves and rhinestones on the chest. The satin material feels devine, but doesn’t add for much warmth. This black dress with faux fur around the neckline and wrists is the epitome of classically chic. It hugs my curves perfectly and is so comfy to wear! It’s understated, but the faux fur gives it an extra special touch. 


I hope ole everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Ice Blue // Plaid Tweed Coat


Plaid Jacket c/o || LC Lauren Conrad Penguin Sweater, Old || White Turtleneck || AG Skinny Jeans || White Circle Bag || Similar Silver Bow Heels || Jackie Kennedy Cascade Ring || Stella & Dot Ring || Jackie Kennedy Earrings ||  

Hello and happy Thursday, friends! Today’s look is all about this plaid tweed coat and icy cool blue tones. To start off with, how gorgeous is this plaid coat from Chicwish?! The powdery blue color in the coat is what I started with and went from there. I typically choose warmer tones and gold, but felt that silver and light blue would blend beautifully together. I found the coat to fit true to size and went with an XS. It’s currently on sale for 25% off now too! This tweed coat will undoubtably elevate any look and keep you stylish all winter long. When you think about it, a coat is so important since that’s what most people see you in while you’re out and about. I hope everyone had a great Friday-Eve!

Going Glam

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Let me start off by saying WOW about this dress (enter the heart eye emoji here.) This dress has a built in bra and shorts underneath the tulle skirt, which is sheer. This dress is an absolute stunner! I actually received a ton of compliments while taking the photos for it. The sheer tulle skirt has little black stars adorning it. Anything with stars or the moon right now is very big and I have to say I couldn’t be happier about it! I’ve always been drawn to anything with the stars or moon and have some sentimental reasons for loving them too. The dress does fit true to size, though the length may need to be hemmed if you’re on the shorter side like I am (5’2.)

Visions Of Candy Canes


Red Lace Dress c/o || Similar Gold Sequin Heels || Similar Gold Clutch || Jackie Kennedy Cascade Ring || Stella & Dot Ring ||  


Good morning, friends! Every year I have a dress that is THE dress of the holiday season for me and this one is it! As soon as I saw it I thought of candy canes with the pretty red and creamy white pattern along the skirt. The top is red lace that gives the dress a very delicate and feminine feel. I’ve always been drawn to red, especially for Christmas. Every single one of my dresses for my high school dances were red, haha. I’m wearing an XS and found the dress to fit very true to size. This is one of those looks that just has me swooning every time I see it. Chicwish always has the best dresses, especially the “prom” dress section. Those have always been my favorite. They’re basically fit and flare dresses, with a midi skirt length, that have a beautiful pattern on them. I’ve worn many of them and can never get enough. I paired gold accessories with this look to give it an extra festive feel. You can never go wrong with some sequins during the Christmas season!

Classic New England Feel

Happy December 1st and a wonderful Friday morning to you! I wanted to sneak in one more fall related post even though it’s the Christmas season now, especially with it being December already! This look has so much of a New England aura to it with its classic touch and slight preppy feel. You can never go wrong with a chunky sweater to keep you warm and cozy. I love pairing over the knee boots with skirts too. They keep your legs warm when there’s a chill in the air and definitely elongate your legs. 

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Good morning and happy Thursday, friends! When I originally saw this dress my eyes bugged out at the beautiful bright yellow sunflower print against the dark navy background. Yellow and navy make for such an eye popping color combination! Not only did the print catch my eye, but the vintage feel and bow-tie waist are just too gorgeous to pass up. I went with matching colors with my navy peacoat and mustard top handle bag. Adding some gold sparkly heels gave the look an extra special feel!

My Old Friend, Goodbye


This past Sunday our family dog Belle passed away after a battle with kidney failure. She was 13 1/2 years old and did live a wonderful life. I am so thankful for her being in our lives and bringing love, fun, adventure, and laughter to it. She was an English Springer Spaniel. She helped me get through some hard times in recent years with the passing of many loved ones. She was always my walking or hiking buddy and loved to run free in the fields or state game lands. Her spirit, even as she was declining, could not be beat. That tail of hers never stopped wagging whenever she saw a friendly face. She was a strong girl and reminded me so much of my mother who fought with a loving spirit until the end. Belle passed away at home in my dad’s arms. Pets really do become family members and she was an intrical part of ours. Everyone who met her loved her. I feel very fortunate that Ava got to know her too. It’s been hard these past couple of weeks and especially hard these past few days after she passed. Ava saw me crying and kept hugging me with such a concerned look on her face. It was a sweet moment and one I will never forget. I am blessed to have strong girls in my family. Thank you Belle for being the best friend and companion we could have ever asked for. I will miss you forever.

My old friend, this song's for you
'Cause a few simple verses was the least that I could do
To tell the world that you were here
'Cause the love and the laughter
Will live on long after
All of the sadness and the tears
We'll meet again
My old friend...goodbye



Red Pearl Sweater c/o || LipSense in Blue Red c/o || Stella & Dot Ring || Jackie Kennedy Cascade Ring ||  

Good morning, friends and happy Tuesday! The holiday season is in full swing and with that comes holiday makeup! My obvious favorite color to wear for any holiday party is red, but we all know how hard it is to maintain with the worrisome smudging or rubbing off. I was recently introduced to LipSense by a friend of mine and was completely impressed with it! No smudging or rubbing off. It’s kiss proof too! I tested the lipstick out for a few weeks and can honestly say it works wonders. It comes in a set with the lipstick color, a top gloss, and a remover for any mistakes made during the application. Below is a step by step guide on how to apply the product and a discount code for my followers! 

  •  Thoroughly clean and dry your lips
  • Shake your LipSense  
  • Start on the bottom lip and apply from corner-to-corner in one swipe on the outer lip. Then repeat on he inner lip.  
  • Apply from corner-to-corner on the top lip in one swipe. Then repeat on the top inner lip.  
  • Once you have applied your first coat, let it dry. This should only take a couple seconds. Try not to touch your lips together. Your lips will feel sticky.  
  • Repeat steps 3-5 two more times for a total of 3 layers of color. Be sure to let dry between layers.  
  • Once the color is dry, you’ll apply your gloss and even out by gently rubbing your lips together. 
  • Apply gloss as needed throughout the day

This may seem like many steps, but once you practice a few times you’ll get the hang of it. I can do mine in about 1-2 minutes and it’s totally worth it! LipSense does have to be purchased through an independent distributor (kind of like Avon.) I get mine from Maddie. She is great and totally helped me the whole way!

November Glossybox


Grateful November Glossybox c/o || AG Skinny Jeans || Rose Velvet Flats || Similar Pearl Bead Sweater || Stella & Dot Ring || Jackie Kennedy Ring ||  

Hello dear friends and happy Monday! I hope everyone truly had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with their family and friends. Mine was very relaxing spent with loved ones. We ended up having some nice weather too so everyone made sure to spend some time outdoors. Ava and I also decorated our home for Christmas! She loves all of the twinkle lights.  

In the spirit of giving, Glossybox created their Grateful beauty box for November. Inside are goodies that will not only look good, but do good too. Ava wanted to be a part of the fun also! She loves looking through all of the beauty products, especially the lipstick and perfumes. She had a ton of fun during the shoot! Below you’ll find what’s included: 

  •  Tarteist Brow Gel : Tame and maintain those brows! A paraban-free, water-infused formula means no drying, no flaking, and a naturally clean finish with just a few strokes. I have thick brows and love how this product kept mine in place all day! 
  •  Kat Von D Beauty Saint Eau De Parfum : This parfum is customized based on your own body heat. SAINT features classic floral notes of vanilla, musk, and jasmine. Ava and I both loved it! 
  •  Nature Queen   Shampoo & Conditioner : Nourish, balance, and cleanse your hair more beautifully with help from this cult-loved natural hairline. Aromatic ingredients like honey locust, lemongrass, and patchouli make every hair wash a home spa experience! 
  •  Evoo Beauty Green Tea Primer : This silky green tea and avocado oil blend means a smooth start (and finish( every time.  
  •  Laqa & CO Cloud Lips Airy Matte Lipstick In Daydream : This chubby lip pencil packs a long-lasting, just-applied look that stays put all day. This has avacado oil in it making it a smooth finish that’s high on pigment too! Another favorite of Ava and mine! The color is a dark blush which I tend to wear as my everyday color. Very flattering!

That Holiday Feeling

Good morning, friends! This plaid top gives me all the holiday feels! The bright red catches the eye while the plaid sleeves add a beautiful contrast.  It’s the perfect top for fall and transitioning over to the Christmas season. They say it’s all in the details and I completely agree! The little bow tie gives this top a vintage twist and elevates it to anything but basic. I kept with the plaid theme and chose this midi skirt I’ve had from Forever 21. It’s fantastic on those cold days. These plaid shoes finish off the outfit nicely, also having a very chic navy bow on them with little rhinestones. The top runs true to size. I’m wearing a small and it’s on sale now for $18!

Hello, friends and happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I rented the new Wonder Woman movie and absolutely loved it! I have to say this movie did the character justice. To be honest, I never really followed the comic too closely or even the television show with Lynda Carter, but I’ve been researching the character and getting more into her. This movie with Gal Gadot definitely made me into a fan! If you haven’t seen it, or were on the fence about it, I would recommend seeing it for sure. The new Justice League movie came out this weekend with Wonder Woman in it so it’ll all tie in nicely together. 

This sweater from Woolrich is one of my star fall pieces in my closet. I’ve had this forever and it’s stood the test of time. I pull it out every fall and work it into as many different outfits as I can. The burnt orange color is stunning along with the subtle mustard and green colors throughout. I paired this with a burgundy turtleneck, which blends in seamlessly, and my trusty Melie Bianco bag that I have literally been carrying with me everywhere. You’ve definitely seen it in many posts! It’s another fall piece that has been a stand by and one that I treasure.

Bow Ties


Bow Tie Sweater c/o || AG Skinny Jeans || Similar Leopard Heels || Melie Bianco Bag (Old, Similar Here) || Striped Turtleneck || Stella & Dot Ring || Jackie Kennedy Cascade Ring ||  

Happy Friday, friends! It’s no secret I have quite a love for anything with a bow on it. They can elevate even the simplest piece into something very special and of course I love the feminine feel. This sweater has two black bow ties on either side and a high low hemline. The bottom half of the sweater is open where the ties are so I layered a turtleneck underneath. It is a one size fits all and is only $21. There’s just something about a tan sweater in the fall. It’s a classic and goes with everything! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! It’s supposed to rain and even possibly snow up my way. Definitely good movie weather. There’s quite a few good ones out or coming out very soon. I’m particularly wanting to see Murder On The Orient Express. Poirot has always been a favorite of mine!

Good morning and happy Thursday, friends! It's hard to believe Thanksgiving is only one week away. Where did the month of November go?! On that thought, where did 2017 go?? It always amazes me at how quickly time goes by anymore.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I had this outfit in mind when thinking of what to wear for the holiday. I want to wear something very fall festive and fell in love with this color combination. These over the knee boots are amazing and actually stay up on my legs! I have very thin legs and have trouble with over the knee styles staying up, slouchy suede boots specifically, which are very popular right now. These are suede, but not slouchy, and comfortably stay up without me having to constantly pull them up. Can we talk about how gorgeous the color is too?!? It's a deep cranberry wine that is a total knockout for fall and winter.

Mommy & Me- Love Sweatshirt

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today is another installment of my “Mommy & Me” matching outfits that I cannot get enough of! The gray sweatshirts have Love written across them and are perfect for any mommy and baby duo. The sweatshirts are from Yoins, which has a great selection of matching outfits! I’m very impressed. I’m wearing a size XS and Ava is in a size 90. I love that these sweatshirts are something we can both wear numerous times on casual days or even dressed up with a black skirt and shoes. Also, it’s hard to believe that Ava is already half of my height and she’s only two years old! Maybe she’ll grow taller than me one day. It could happen, haha!

Good morning, friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!  Is anyone else hating how it gets dark so early now? I’m definitely missing those extra hours of sunlight. We also had a blast of cold weather, which meant lots of hot vanilla latte’s and also Peppermint Mocha’s from Starbucks! Once the holiday season starts I always end up getting Peppermint Mocha’s. They’re refreshing and chocolaty at the same time. Yum! The Cranberry Bliss Bar from Starbucks is another favorite. Seriously, it is amazingly good. 

This was one of my favorite recent outfits because of all the creamy tan neutrals. I’m a big fan of Woolrich, especially their coats, and love how they originated in Pennsylvania. I believe their PA factory still makes their famous wool blankets, but the rest of manufacturing has since moved over seas. This plaid jacket I picked up at their outlet store in Woolrich, PA. Yep, they have a town named after them! This sweater is soooo comfy and actually has a fleecey material inside. It keeps me warm and toasty. I couldn’t find it online, but I got this one at the J.Crew Factory store. My store still has them in stock and there is a HUGE sale going on right now!

Cranberry Jacket // Special Pieces

Good morning and happy Thursday, friends! Today’s look is all about some of my favorite fall colors and patterns mixed into one. It’s always fun mixing different prints together such as leopard and plaid. I’ve been loving this cranberry puffer jacket lately. The color is so rich and it’s the perfect weight for the in-between fall and winter temperatures. I typically would have gotten an XXS, but went with an XS so I could layer comfortably underneath it. The most special piece of this ensemble is my bag, which was my mother’s originally. She gave it to me a while ago, but once she passed I stopped taking it out for fear that something would happen to it. Lately, I’ve decided it was better to use it and remember her while carrying it with me.

Cozy Sweater // Black And Tan

Good morning, friends! Last night I finshed watching the second season of Stranger Things  on Netflix. Literally everyone I know has been talking about the show and how good it is so I decided to see for myself. I basically watched seasons one and two in three days! It definitely gets you hooked on the story line.   

I wore this super cozy sweater over the weekend and absolutely loved it! It has a roll neck, just like a turtleneck, and slightly long sleeves that have elastic at the end so they don’t cover your hands. Of course, you can pull them up over your hands if you wanted to. I do this sometimes when I get really cold. It is a one size fits all and is only $21. The fit is slightly cropped, though on someone taller than me, it may be an actual cropped sweater

Mommy And Me: The Red Dress

Hello all and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Did anyone go see Thor?!? I have to say, it is was one the BEST Marvel movies and definitely the best Thor movie. It was so funny too! Kudos to Marvel and the whole Thor team, you guys outdid yourselves! Also, the newest episode of Outlander was on Sunday. Jamie and Claire, all the feels! This show basically combines all of my favorite things into one, history, romance, and an absolutely intriguing story with well developed characters. 

As you know, my favorite posts are always the ones that feature my little Ava bug! Matching my outfit to Ava’s is one of my favorite things to do. Even if the outfits don’t match, sometimes I’ll still match the color scheme up. My mom used to love dressing my family up in matching outfits too. I even still have one of our matching dresses that I cannot wait to dress Ava and I up in. That will be a very special moment for me.

These red lace dresses Ava and I are wearing feature a delicate floral pattern and have an A-Line design. The fit is a little loose with some stretch to it. Very comfortable for wearing all day! I got my usual size of XS, but probably could have sized down to an XXS. Ava’s is a size 90. She typically fits into a US size 2T depending on the company. We both had so much fun in these dresses! These red dresses are so special to me now and I cannot wait to wear them for years to come.

Fall In Love With Your Life

Good morning, friends! I hope everyone had fun yesterday with their Halloween festivities. Now onto Christmas, haha! I have to laugh because everyone really skips over Thanksgiving anymore and heads right into the most festive time of the year. I think everyone wants to soak up as much Christmas cheer as they can. The season really does go by very quickly, especially when you are planning so many different things. 

I saw this sweatshirt online and thought how wonderful the saying on it is. It reads, “Fall In Love With Your Life.” The color alone is a cheerful one, but the saying really hit home for me. I think we could all use that as a little reminder every now and then. I would usually wear this tucked into my skirt, which I did, but I also wore it untucked to be able to read the message. Either way is really cute in my opinion. I’m wearing a size small and the sweatshirt is only $16! Definitely something I’ll be grabbing time and time again.

Camel, Stripes, And A Bow. Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! I hope everyone enjoys the spooky holiday and has fun trick or treating! I'm always get excited to hear The Monster Mash, Thriller, and The Ghost Buster theme songs on the radio too. It’s not Halloween without them!  

Whenever I see a special little detail on a piece of clothing, I am instantly hooked. The striped sweater, a classic staple piece on its own, is elevated and made even more lovely with the addition of a delicate bow around the cuffs. I’m smitten! The sweater is a one size fits all. I’m also crazy about this cardigan! The camel is a great neutral and pairs with just about anything. My favorite though is with traditional fall colors such as burnt orange, mustard, red, black, white, or olive green. This is the kind of outfit that will always be a classic and forever chic.
