Happy Wednesday, friends! Memorial Day is right around the corner and it actually falls on my birthday this year! With the holiday nearing, I automatically started pulling out all of my finest red, white, and blue pieces. I always tend to dress very patriotic with a preppy side for Memorial Day. It's also a time when I want to be near the water. There's something very soothing and peaceful about being around a lake, the ocean, or even a stream. I've always been drawn to them. I think JFK said it best when he said:

โ€œAll of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came." -John F. Kennedy

A lake was the perfect backdrop for this pleated ensemble, which is on sale! Both the top and skirt are from Banana Republic Factory, though I could not find the top online. I picked up both pieces in the store and both fit true to size. I couldn't help but swish and twirl the skirt a few times too. It's irresistable!

Happy Tuesday, friends! As you may know, I am a bit obsessed with bows. Any time I see one, I instantly start to swoon a bit and dream of all things girly. This beautiful red satin dress is no exception to that rule! Does anyone else start planning for the holiday season around now? I am already starting to think about it and what I want to wear to certain events. This darling dress is not only great for dinner and drinks, but also fantastic for a holiday party! I plan on wearing this to Justin's work Christmas party. I always love to pair gold accessories with my holiday outfits too, or any outfit for that matter.

Happy Friday! Another end to the work week and  the beginning of a fabulous weekend ahead. The color combination of black, white, and red has always had me swooning and feeling very chic. If there is one color that would count as a show stopper, it most certainly would be red. Enjoy your weekend lovelies!

Valentine's Day Outfit

Happy Wednesday everyone! For this Valentine's inspired outfit I wanted something a little more relaxed, but still stylish and of course that pop of red. The blouse, with its beautiful tie bow neck, is from Modcloth and the ankle jeans from LC Lauren Conrad. Ankle jeans are great for anyone who is vertically challenged like me. I'm only 5ft 2in and find that most jeans are too long for me. Anything titled "short" or "ankle" fit usually work best. The red heels from Connie and pretty pink clutch round out the outfit. Notice the chocolate covered caramel apple? A great treat for anyone on Valentine's Day. Absolutely delicious. Shop similar styles below. The Second pair are jeans are the exact match.

There's something so festive and energizing about red during the winter and holiday season. It's one of my go to's when choosing an outfit, especially a party one. The eye-catching color and sparkly sequins are sure to get you noticed and stand out from the crowd. Of course, using a bright red lipstick felt appropriate. I read that heat signifying shades, like bright red, hot pink, orange, and yellow trigger energy levels. Wearing a lipstick, shirt, or dress in those shades during the winter keeps you feeling cheery and excited when feeling down from the dreary weather. I used gold as the neutral color, which pairs so well with red, in all of my accessories. A nice little vintage feather hat feels ever so classy without feeling too over the top.
