Asymmetric Sequin Dress

The Statement Dress!

I got so many compliments about this piece I wore this past weekend and felt like I needed to share, just in time for the holidays!

My mom and I went to a Christmas event at the gym we belong too. It was red carpet themed and we were ready for a girls night out!

I found this gem on — rent the runway for $35! When the dress is a retail purchase of $239!!!

The great thing about rent the runway is that you return it and never have to worry about it again!

I knew this dress would be a one time kind of wear, but knew I had to go for it!

You can rent the dress HERE

Get yourself a girl that wears both 😉



Fall Florals

If florals for spring aren’t actually “groundbreaking” then what about for fall?!

I’ve curated three outfits, each incorporating a fun and flirty fall floral piece.

The frilled floral midi skirt.
paired with a cashmere short sleeve sweater and ivory stilettos
The paisley print peasant dress.
paired with cognac leather riding boots
The cropped tea rose trousers.
paired with a polo collared sweater and cap toe pumps.

Which fall floral piece is your favorite?


White Cowboy Boots

Im not going to lie, it’s taken me longer than I’d like to admit to “dip my toes into” the white cowboy boot trend. My original thinking was these white cowboy boots would be harder to style, but now that I’ve tried them out myself it seems like there’s nothing more versatile than a pair of white boots!

I’m sharing three of my favorite looks in these beauties

OUTFIT ONE:

Sweater // Shorts // Cowboy Boots


OUTFIT TWO

Dress // Cowboy Boots


OUTFIT THREE

Nike Crew Neck // Cowboy Boots


The beauty of a white boot is that it goes with any color in your wardrobe.

Throw out the notion that you can only wear white after Labor Day, because these boots will look fabulous this fall and winter! They add a touch of softness to any denim ensemble, will look great with tights and even paired with your heavy winter coat.

How would you style a pair of white cowboy boots!?

As always, thanks for stopping by the blog!

Let Me Count The Ways

Today’s blog post utilizes a classic staple wardrobe piece like this ever popular houndstooth blazer in three different looks to boast its versatility. I have had a similarly printed blazer in a shorter, more dressy version for years. When I saw this one on sale recently I had to have it too. My original is one of my most worn pieces, I gravitate toward it constantly. This version is longer and has an open front and ruched sleeves giving off a slightly more casual vibe.

If I had to sum up my favorite go-to style in a few words, it would be classic, timeless pieces with preppy and casual twist. I think having this blog over the years has helped me to step out of my fashion box a little more than I normally would. While trends are not my thing, I sometimes like to push the envelope of my own personal style.

If you told me several years ago that I would be wearing wide legged pants and non-skinny jeans, I would have laughed and said you were out of your mind! But in the past few months wide legged trousers and my “mom jeans” have become fast favorites. I know some may think this transition in tailoring is not a big deal, but it is for me!

A lot of times, I can look overdressed or my very classic outfits can age me, so I think adding in a little bit of a trend can tone things down and also keep me in my age range. The outfits you see above are pretty much a day to day uniform for me. I wear these outfits for work, or out and about.

This blazer is so great because it’s comfortable, seasonless, and mostly classic! I put a lot of thought into my outfits, all while attempting to make it seem as if it comes together effortlessly. Classic pieces help me achieve just that.

The other items in these outfits are all made up of staples, so you should be able to recreate them at home no problem! It’s always wise to have a favorite blazer, a solid turtleneck, good denim, black leggings, and practical shoes in your arsenal! With those items, you can mix and match and create many different looks!

Kiss Kiss

I am not usually one to shop around in regards to make-up. My regimen is very basic and I usually stick with what I like and when I run out, I go out and re-purchase the same product to replace it. However, I had seen the Kiss Cushion lip stains by Revlon at the drug store and grocery store on a few occasions and have always been curious about using a lip stain, so I took the plunge and I am very happy I did!

( I am not payed or compensated in any way for this recommendation post, this is just because I think this product is worth reviewing!)


Here are the pros:
– I love the cushion applicator, it is so easy to use and evenly distributes the color.
– The shade I’m wearing is “Naughty Mauve” and I think it is perfect and appropriate for many occasions. You could easily layer a gloss over top for more of a glam look.
– the very affordable price tag and accessibility of the product

And for the cons:
– The color is very pigmented when you first apply it to your lips (I guess for some this could be a pro) so I find dabbing it on my lips and then rubbing it in with my finger makes the color look more subtle for a more everyday look.
-There are not many colors to choose from, and of course since it is drug store make-up, there are no “testers” to see what the colors will look like on you, so you may need to experiment for your skin tone.

All in all I really do love this product and will definitely be purchasing another lip stain in the future.

Have a great week! 💄💋


Thankful, Grapeful, Blessed

I can’t think of a more perfect blend, than spending a fall afternoon in the vineyard. Unless of course we are talking about fashion, then it’s a classic cable knit sweater and jeans for me!
Each piece of my outfit is something I’ve had in my closet from many seasons ago, but they are so timeless I’ll never part with them and can continue to style them year after year.
