Bag: Just Fab (sold out, this one is cute) // Dress: Forever 21 // Boots: Target (old, but these are similar) // Necklace: Forever 21 // Ring: Premier Designs

I don't think I'll ever out grow my love for sheer flowing boho dresses.  Love this one paired with my light brown booties.  I'm currently lusting over this gem as well.  If it's freezing where you are, pair these dresses with over the knee boots and tights.  Bare legs worked out fine during the day here in Texas with the ever so changing weather (although it's freezing when the sun goes down!).  This bag sure is a carryall (I love big bags!)  The stellar combo of navy and burgundy is a longtime favorite of mine, very complimentary.  I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas!  Had a great day of quality family time and now back home for a relaxing night of movie watching and pigging out on the sofa.  Got some wonderful things this year and feel very blessed to be able to spend every holiday with my family and worship the Lord.  But the holidays are not over for me...I have one more Christmas on Saturday to look forward to!  Hope everyone had a great Christmas.

I'm so excited to announce that I've teamed up with Lyss of Setting Sail to be a part of her Holiday Guest Blogger Style Series.  Today I shared my Festive Holiday Party look.  Lyss was a pleasure to work with and would love to collaborate again soon!  Be sure to check out the full post HERE and read about how me and other fellow fashion bloggers styled their Festive Holiday Party Look.  Hope you love this series as much as I do!


I hope you enjoyed my first DIY!  I absolutely love how it turned out.  I got the idea when I was shopping at a specialty Christmas shop and they had almost the exact same pom pom ball garland.  I said "I can make that!".  I loved the fact of using transparent cord so the white pom pom really pops against the gold tinsel tree.  Looks like snowballs!  I'm planning on making another one for my bigger tree and save it for next year and maybe use larger pom poms.  Have fun crafting and Merry Christmas!

I know I'm a little late with the gift guides this year, but's never too late for shopping.  Most people don't finish their Christmas shopping till a couple of days before Christmas anyway.  One good thing here is that most items featured here can still be found in stores (with exception of one or two).  I tried to pick those products that are most coveted by women and I think I pretty much nailed it!  I know I would love one of each of everything here!  Merry Christmas!!

Words can't express how much I adore the styling of J. Crew.  Just look at these pages pulled directly from their Winter Catalog.  Just fantastic!  As always, I love to get styling ideas for my own looks from J. Crew.  I really wish I picked up that plaid shirt when it first came out, I can't seem to find it anywhere!  I guess I'll be on the hunt...let me know if you've seen it!

Merry Christmas!!

Outfit One - Booties // Sweater // Watch // Jeans // Beanie
Outfit Two - Top // Jacket // Top // Necklace
Outfit Three - Dress // Coat // Bag // Earrings

What's great about this bootie by Steve Madden is that it is so versatile.  It works in all three categories above - Relaxed, Edgy and Girlie.  The cutouts is an absolute favorite of mine.  Wearing this bootie Relaxed is a great way to dress the look down.  Be sure to roll up your jeans to create a laid back vibe.  The Edgy combo is my favorite in that it more represents my style.  I love leather skirts and long gold chains.  When paired with the bootie here, it creates a rock and roll feel that I really love.  And lastly, the Girlie trend (which is always in style) never gets old.  It's a timeless look that you could always fall back on.  The bootie adds a nice unexpected twist with such a feminine dress.  I adore the combo.  What's your favorite look?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I hope y'all are having a great day and eating tons of food.  I'm about to dig in myself, so see you back here tomorrow!

I was so excited to have been nominated for "Fashionista of the Week" by Kimberly of Sensible Stylista last week and really appreciate the opportunity to have been a part of her contest.  To my surprise, after a tally of the votes, I won the contest and the title of "Fashionista of the Week"!!  Click here to read about the contest and you too could be the next "Fashionista of the Week".  A huge thanks to Kimberly, the Sensible Stylista!  If you haven't already, you should definitely check out her site, you will love it!  Let's CELEBRATE!

Almost time for my second favorite holiday...Thanksgiving!  I love eating and eating A LOT so I've been trying to think of what to wear to Thanksgiving that will still be comfortable enough to be lazy around the house after eating a huge meal.  I know we all need to be comfy and warm (it's actually cold this year at Thanksgiving in Texas!) so I think these outfit ideas are perfect for just that.  A big comfy coat paired with some leggings and boots - a perfect Thanksgiving combo.  I adore the above fur coat and the third pic from the top - that super cute casual look with over-the-knee boots and a head to toe tonal color palette.  I also think I need a poncho like the fourth pic down - how cool is THIS one?!  But my favorite look is the first one - LOVE the color blocked coat and leather joggers (I've said it before and I'll say it again - obsessed with these!).  What will you be wearing tomorrow?  Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!
