One more holiday outfit for y'all, because it never gets old.  I'm absolutely in love with this sweater.  When I stumbled across it while online shopping, I squealed--mostly because I love Christmas aaand it's a pink sweater with reindeer on it.  The sweater is so so soft and is perfect for the holiday season.  Speaking of the holidays, if you haven't gotten the chance to check out the holiday collection over at Accessory Concierge, make sure to do so here! I've been styling some of my favorite jewelry pieces from their collection and this necklace is definitely one of them!
Thanks for stopping by!

Gift Guide For Her: The Monogram Edition

If you're anything like me, then you have a soft place for monogrammed items.  So here are a few that would make perfect gifts...{hint hint to my friends & family}.  PLUS: some of these items are 30% off! Wahoo for sales. Click on the items in the graphic or in the caption above!

Little Black Boots

Cords // Sweater // Jacket // Steve Madden Boots // Watch // Earrings // Lips
{All items via Nordstrom}

The fall and winter months call for the perfect boots, right? Right. Well, you might have remembered me discussing how I have yet to find the perfect black booties.  Well, y'all, my time has come.  I found some fabulous Steve Madden booties from Nordstrom --and let me tell you, it was love at first sight.  Nordstrom has the best selection of fall shoes, and in this case, especially booties. They've got these Sam Edelman booties that I'm crushing on hard, and how about these Frye boots that I just snagged a few weeks ago?  The more shoes and boots the merrier? Is that how the saying goes? {Or maybe that's just my saying.} I feel like I owe Nordstrom a slice of pie and a back rub for making my feet so happy.

When I was getting dressed for date night one night, I wanted a casual chic outfit.  Andrew and I usually grab dinner and then, somehow, we end up always on our feet somewhere.  So, I decided to go for this Burberry jacket {which is so comfy & warm}, a striped sweater, and some cords.  These Steve Madden booties were the perfect asset, because the heel is just thick enough to let me walk in them for hours if I wanted to.  Y'all have probably seen from my Instagram that I keep wearing them...but I'm not apologizing for it--they're just that great! Make sure to check out some of my other favorite black booties from Nordstrom below!

Sparkly Accent


Skirt: c/o L. Mae Boutique | Top: c/o L. Mae Boutique | Shoes: Lucky Brand | Necklace: c/o BaubleBar | Clutch: Clare V | Watch: Michael Kors | Earrings: Givenchy | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Lips: MAC 'Ruby Woo'
I only have two days of classes this week! Wahoo!  That, my friends, is awesome.  I'm in serious need of some rest--a mental break from all these projects and such, so Thanksgiving break is arriving at the perfect time.  Speaking of, this little number would be a perfect outfit for a Thanksgiving dinner.  Some booties, a glitzy statement necklace from BaubleBar, and this skirt is kind of perfectly elastic.  Elasticity + Thanksgiving = great combo.  

Happy Monday!

Frye + Chunky Knit

Sweater: J.Crew {similar} | Shirt: Vince | Jeans: Gap | Shoes: Frye | Tote: c/o GiGi New York | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Necklace: c/o Gorjana | Earrings: c/o Loren Hope | Ring: c/o Kendra Scott
Alright, alright--these are the last set of outfit photos that I have with my long hair.  I promise no more.  I'm surprisingly really enjoying my shorter hair.  It's easier to curl and maintain, and it's different--in a good kind of way.  I'm still taking biotin though, and will probably grow it out yet again.  There's just something about my long hair that I'm quite fond of.  Luckily, my hair grows extremely fast already so my long locks will be back before I know it.

Anyways, this Sunday, I'm so excited to be teaming up with some fabulous gals for a $400 Nordstrom Gift Card! It's just in time for some holiday shopping.  Just make sure to enter below!
