I have to say, this full skirt is giving me major princess vibes. It's dramatically feminine and in my favorite hue. It also comes in four other stunning colors too. I've always been a bit hesitant with maxi styles being a petite height, but in reality, maxi styles can really lengthen your frame! It's a trick of the eye of course, but when wearing a monochromatic maxi style, you instantly look taller. I'm 5'2 and this just fits with the length. If you're shorter then you'll likely need to have it hemmed. I'm wearing a size 0. Oh, and this skirt has pockets too! An instant selling point in my opinion. The halter top has shimmering beads on it for a glamorous look and pairs perfectly with the skirt.

I just want to say also how saddened I am over the passing of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. It's heartbreaking for a daughter and mother to pass away only one day apart like that. Both were great and funny female role models and had a huge part in my childhood and growing up with Carrie being Princess Lea in Star Wars and Debbie being Kathy Selden in Singin' In The Rain. I cannot even tell you how many times I've watched both films, especially watching them with my family. Two other films that I love and have watched countless times are Debbie in The Tender Trap with Frank Sinatra and Carrie in The Burbs with Tom Hanks. Not their most famous roles, or ones that people even know about, but two films that are interwoven into my life. My heart goes out to their family and friends.

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a beautiful and magical Christmas with their family and friends. It was a bittersweet for us, but we still had a wonderful day celebrating. With Christmas over and New Years Eve on the horizon, I started thinking about outfits that would be fun for ringing in 2017. My first instinct is always a dress. Something that sparkles and shimmers is high on my list, but then I thought about something that is just as feminine and sexy without being over the top. Enter the jumpsuit. When you think about it, its very similar to a dress being an all in one outfit. I love this for a date night out or for a new years eve party. The floral embroidery on the semi-sheer top is so pretty and one of next years big trends. It's already popping up on items from jeans,  to jackets, and bags. The silky woven bottoms feel so comfortable and are a nice alternative to a skinny pant. The fit is true to size.

Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas holiday and weekend. This was little Ava's first Christmas and it went wonderfully. She got some books, toys, and clothes from Santa and loved ones. The day went by so quickly between opening presents, visiting family and friends, and enjoying the Christmas dinner. All that being said and done, there really is nothing like getting together with the people you care about and spending some quality time while reminiscing about the good ol' days and dreaming of what the future has in store.

Speaking of the future, New Years Eve is right around the corner (where has the time gone?!) which means lots of fun and sparkly looks! If you've been following me for a while, then you know I love a good sequin. I get so excited about a little bit of sparkle! Be it from a blazer or pant, sequins always jazz up an outfit which is perfect for NYE. Also, a little black dress is always in style and will never disappoint. The bow back detail above adds a fun twist and is anything but boring. It's actually a shirt and skit, but looks like a dress.

I hope everyone has a great day and is getting excited for the new year!

When it comes to celebrating I always like a little, or a lot, of sparkle and shine in my ensemble. There is no greater time to shine than at New Years Eve. The holiday practically begs for everyone to dazzle their brightest. While this look is every bit of a party outfit, it is still comfy with the soft jersey tank and midi length skirt, great for keeping those legs a little warmer during these bitter cold days.
