Little Velvet Dress.

I love velvet, especially around this time of year. It's so classic and chic and is perfect for holiday parties. Recently I was gifted this lovely floral velvet dress with gold detailing from SheIn just in time for the holiday season. What I love about velvet dresses in general is that they can be dressed up or down for different occasions. Here I styled the dress in a more casual way with black tights, booties, some pearls and a trench coat but you could easily swap out the booties for heels, add a fur snood and a berry colored lip to dress it up!

Christmas Tree Picking.

It's officially the most wonderful time of the year... let all the fun holiday festivities commence! Today my family and I had the most Christmasy day- we went out and selected the perfect tree, drank hot peppermint cocoa, bought holiday candles from Bath and Body Works (they are only $8.95 today!!!) and now we are decorating the house! I just love spending time with my family and enjoying the seasons traditions.

For my outfit today I wore this tweed skirt and ruffled blouse from Romwe along with a fur vest and my Hunter boots which made for the perfect Christmas tree picking look.

What I Want for Christmas 2017.

I thought it would be fun to share my Christmas wish list with ya'll in case you needed some ideas to add to your own list or maybe you'll see something that might be a great gift to give! This year I kind of struggled coming up with items to put on my list. What is it that I really need?! (I am an impatient person and if I want something I go out and get it right away... I can't wait for Santa to bring it to me ;) LOL. After racking my brain for a while, I finally came up with some items that were suitable for my Christmas wish list. You can check below for all the details!

1.) J. Crew Coat: I work at J. Crew Factory and have been eyeing this beauty up for weeks now. I don't own a gray coat and I think this one would be a great addition to my collection.

2.) Vera Bradley Lunchbox: While I may not be in school anymore, I do pack a lunch for work and having a cute lunchbox like this one would make me smile.

3.) Lululemon Leggings: I have been dying to get a pair of Lulu leggings for a while now but just haven't bit the bullet and gotten them for myself yet. Pleeeeease, Santa!

4.) Floral Phone Case: My marble phone case that I have at the moment is looking a little dull so I thought a pretty floral one like this would brighten things up a bit.

5.) Tarte Highlighter: This is my favorite highlighter and I just ran out! It gives the most gorgeous, natural glow.

6.) J. Crew Necklace: Again, I see this pretty little thang at work every week and I think I need it in my life. Crystal necklaces like this pair with literally anything!

7.) Nike Sneakers: I am trying to get back into the gym again and a cute pair of gray sneakers might make that a little easier.

8.) Mac Lipstick: Mac lippies are my absolute fave! The shade Holiday Crush looks like the perfect "everyday pink."

Honorable mentions: Swell Bottle, Iphone Charger, Bath & Body Works Candles, Fuzzy Blankets

Thanksgiving Outfit.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and I can't believe it is only one week away. I am so excited to spend time with my family, eat lots of mashed potatoes and pie and just kick back and relax (until I have to work my first Black Friday shift at J Crew that evening lol wish me luck.) 

Picking out an outfit to wear to Thanksgiving dinner has always been a tradition I share with my mom. We treat ourselves to a girls day and go to the mall and spend hours trying to pick out the perfect outfits to wear and it's something I look forward to all year long. 

This Thanksgiving I will be wearing this berry skirt and cream cable knit sweater combo. I wanted to spice things up a bit so I went outside my comfort zone and paired the skirt with matching wine colored tights for a monochromatic look and I ended up really loving the outfit! Some leopard heels, a sparkly necklace and my favorite hat completed the look.

Special thanks to Sarandon Mara for taking these gorgeous photos. You can check out her website here.

The Perfect Flannel.

I had been searching for the perfect flannel for weeks and I finally found it at Old Navy! While browsing around with my mom, we both spotted this flannel and we fell in love with it, so naturally we both bought it ha! I am so not ashamed to match my momma, she's got great style! 

My mom likes to style her flannel layered underneath an emerald green cardigan while I like to dress it up with a statement necklace like this one from SugarFix by Bauble Bar. 

Ya'll seriously need this flannel in your life!
