Wishing For Spring

Top (sold out- similar here, affordable option here) / Skirt ($13!!) / Shoes ($15!!) / Bag (old, similar here, affordable option here) / Lipstick (shade 02)

Hello Everyone!

The weather is slowing starting to warm up here in Richmond, & florals seem to be the only things I am in the mood to wear. I put this outfit together, & fell in love with it’s effortless, feminine look. The bow details, pops of floral, & the overall silhouette of this look give me the feeling of springs mornings in a coffee shop.

Looking forward & wishing for spring, pops of florals are a must in my wardrobe. Whether it’s a fun top like this one, a floral dress, or a hint of florals on my shoes or handbag, having fun & feminine pieces in my wardrobe make a big impact when putting together spring outfits.

Florals become an easy addition to your wardrobe when you have the right neutrals to pair them with. A neutral, everyday skirt (not an evening skirt), is a key item you will want to have this spring. Also, adding a navy cropped blazer to your wardrobe like this very affordable one (seen here), can really help bring a whole outfit together. It can easily be thrown over almost any floral top or dress & adds a bit of structure to a flowy, floral look.

Holiday Pajama Sets

Holiday Pajama Sets

Hello Everyone!

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is wearing holiday pajama sets. Every year, my siblings & I get to open one present on Christmas Eve from my grandma, & it’s always a fun & festive pajama set. It’s a sweet tradition that I look forward to every year. This year though, I just couldn’t wait until Christmas Eve! Blogmas is here & it’s putting me in quite the Christmas spirit, so I went ahead & purchased 2 new sets for the holiday season.

The 2 sets I ended up purchasing are both from Target. My first pair is a classic red Christmas plaid with a lovely black edging detail. One thing I love about this set is that I can actually sleep in it! I tend to overheat at night if I have long sleeves & pants on, but this are just light enough, that I sleep through the night with easy. Don’t get turned off by how light they are though. They are perfect to lounge in, and are cozy to cuddle in. These are my idillic holiday pajamas, & the best part about them is they are on sale for $15 total! Jump on this deal!

My second pair is more of a long johns style (do you say long johns or thermal underwear?). I love how it has a classic white background with whimsical poinsettias & holly layered top. This set is oh so cozy while still being clean, bright, & festive. My favorite way to lounge in these pajamas is with my favorite red plaid fuzzy robe & my Boden blue bow slippers (similar here). These items are so affordable with the holiday pajama set being under $20 & the robe being under $35!

A Red Moment

A Red Moment

Hello Everyone!

Lately I have been totally inspired my these all red looks ( 1 & 2 ), & have been putting together my own version. I feel a little like Rachel Zoe when saying this, but I was needing “a red moment“.

Having pops of red, or simply putting them all on at once, is such a festive trend this season, & I’m all about it! Pulling off a monochrome look like this is all about layering & mixing your textures. I started off with a simple red sweater dress with a roll neck & paired it with my new holiday red coat. This combo alone  is already so festive, but adding the red faux fur scarf brings a whole new element to this look. The faux fur really breaks up the monochrome without changing color! To finish it all off, I paired this outfit with these super sweet red bow heels that are quickly becoming my new favorites.

I thought about adding a pair of red sunnies to my red moment look, but I decided that these black cat eyes fit the vibe I was going for perfectly. The feminine glamour these sunnies bring are just perfection.

My Coat Collection

My Coat Collection

Hello Everyone!

I have always loved coats, & I have always wanted a nice coat collection. You know what started it for me? The Devil Wears Prada. This clip of Andy walking in Manhattan & suddenly appearing in a completely different outfit with another completely stunning coat on, really stuck with me! Meanwhile, when I was living in NYC, I had a big black puffy coat that I wore on the daily, which made me look like I was wearing the same outfit everyday. I knew that someday, I wanted to own a collection with a variety of colors, textures, & silhouettes. Since then, I’ve been slowly adding to my wardrobe, & I am so in love with the pieces I’ve found over the years. I’m still really wanting to add a white, a navy, & a leopard print one to my collection…but that will come in time.

Coats can be expensive. Let me guide you through different price points for every budget to help expand your coat collection this season!

My Coat Collection

Classic Black Coat

You guys, I found this Guess coat at Goodwill for $20! I have found so many amazing things at my local Goodwill, it just takes some digging. Also, I’ve found that after the holidays, around the start of the new year, is the best time to look for coats. I love having this big black wool coat in my collection. It has a wrap around front & gold buttons that are to die for. This piece is a classic, timeless staple, & you probably already have one like it in your closet. But incase you don’t, here are a few of my favorites out there now!

My Coat Collection

Fuzzy Coat

This kind of coat might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s one of my very favorites! It’s a short coat, & looks gorgeous with skirts or dresses. Not only is it beautiful dressed up, but it works wonders with a casual outfit! Throw on your favorites jeans & almost any top, then throw a fuzzy coat like this over top, & your outfit is complete! I recommend this kind of coat to be added to your wardrobe if you are interested in living your coziest life possible. 🙂 Check out all the dreamy options below! Almost all of them are under $50!

My Coat Collection

Pink Coat

I purchased this lovely pink coat last season, & it is just so me. The shade of pink is so wearable & it has just the right amount of structure, making it both formal & casual. I was totally enamored by Julia’s pink coat, that when I saw this one, it was love at first sight. It was instantly added to my coat collection.

Whether you use it as a pop of color, or a neutral to go with everything, a pink coat does wonders for your wardrobe. And pink is totally a festive Christmas color right?!…


My Coat Collection

Cape Coat

This coat is the newest in my collection. I love the fall tones & the subtle plaid thrown into it. What I love most about it though, is the silhouette it creates. It’s sleek & longline & actually has a little padding in the shoulders to add structure. This beauty is quite warm & perfect for wrapping up in like a blanket. (Fun fact: this coat looks JUST like Uncle Drosselmeyer’s cape in our Nutcracker! haha)

My Coat Collection

Trench Coat

The best part about owning a trench coat, is that it can literally be worn all year long! I wore it all over NYC last May (see here), & I also wore it to Thanksgiving last week. It’s so versatile & totally worth the investment this year. I found mine for under $100, so it doesn’t even have to break the bank. This piece is timeless & completes any look with ease. Check out my favorites on the market right now:

Finding The Perfect Tree

Finding The Perfect Tree

Quilted Jacket / Sweater / Scarf / Jeans / Boots / Bag

Hello Everyone!

Last Friday, Ben & I found our Christmas tree! This is a tradition we look forward to every year & this year is our 4th Christmas together. A live tree in the home is just magical. The scent alone feels like Christmas, much less the fact that we add lights & ornaments to it to make it sparkle & shine with cheer. But before we get to the decorations, it’s on to finding the perfect tree.

Finding The Perfect Tree

Finding The Perfect Tree

The things we look for in a perfect tree:

The right height – make sure you measure first!

A good fullness – not too skinny

An even & symmetrical shape

Soft pines – some are definitely softer than others…make sure you touch them.

Just the right amount of quirk. Maybe it has one extra long branch on the side, or the point at the top is crooked…those little things make it YOUR tree.

For Ben & I, we always go with a Frasier Fir. They are just the best in our opinion. (& we are in love with this Frasier Fir candle!)

Finding The Perfect Tree

Once we find the perfect tree, it’s time to take it home.

Now for the fun part…dressing it up!

But you’ll have to wait for that…Until then! xx
