FAVES OF 2013!

Holy cow another year is over and I can't believe it.  It feels like 2013 completely flew by.  As far as the blog goes, here are some of my favorite moments (outfits).  It's been really fun to see how my style has changed a bit since blogging and it hasn't even been a full year.  Prior to blogging, I wore a lot of jeans and tees and saved skirts, dresses and trousers for a special event.  Turns out I no longer really like to wear jeans and prefer a skirt almost any day to pants.  I rekindled my love for lipstick.  I also wore a lot of neon over the last year which is somewhat interesting because I definitely didn't see that coming!  I look forward to seeing what 2014 has in store for me, in blogging and in day-to-day life.  Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out what I have going on over here, it means so much to me!  Hope you have a safe and fun New Year's Eve!  See you in 2014!

 Madewell Dress // J.Crew Belt, Similar // J.Crew Heels // Target Watch // UO Bag (thanks Steph!) // Selima Sunnies

Yep, that's a gold dress!  I wore this for ChristmAs Eve with my family, however it would be the perfect New Year's Eve dress.  I just might re-wear it!  My sister thought I looked like a present which I will definitely take as a compliment.  I decided to keep the accessories minimal considering it's shiny gold.  

FYI this dress runs really big.  I got my normal size and had to belt it in order to wear it.  I may shorten the dress so I can wear it boxy and without a belt.  

Does anyone have any fun plans this New Year's?

F21 Jacket, Similar // Madewell Sweater // J.Crew Jeans, Similar // Anthropologie Booties, Similar // Madewell Bag, Similar // Selima Sunnies

Sorry for the major hiatus!  The holidays this year felt extra busy and I just wanted a little time to actually enjoy them!  Mine was wonderful and I hope yours was as well!  I just cannot believe it's almost the new year, and 2014 at that!  Looking forward to buckling down for the new year.  Do you guys have any resolutions you hope to keep this year or some you know you won't keep?!  Please, do share!

 J.Crew Baseball Cap // UO Sweater // Old Navy Jeans // Madewell Booties // Madewell Bag // Selima Sunnies

I totally forgot about this outfit from my trip to the East which now seems like forever ago.  We were in Boston this day and it was 65 degrees and sunny which was a beautiful way to see the city but I was also way too toasty for what I was wearing.  I was expecting it to be cool and crisp but it was anything but!  The hat, the fuzzy sweater and the coat was definitely overkill!

1, 2, 3, FAUX

 J.Crew Skirt, Similar // UO tee, Similar // Club Monaco Vest // J.Crew Wedges // Madewell Bag // Target Watch // J.Crew Link Bracelet // UO Glasses

I'll be honest, this outfit made me feel WAY more fabulous than I am.  I'm pretty sure every girl needs a little faux in her life.  Plus not only is the vest faux but so are the glasses!  Double faux.

Hope you had a great weekend!

 J.Crew Plaid // J.Crew Pants // Anthropologie Sweater // Madewell Flats // Madewell Bag // J.Crew Watch

With the last month or so feeling so busy I'm super excited to have a semi-relaxing weekend.  Hoping to check out some christmas lights, watch a christmas movie or two and get some shopping done.  I hope the start of your holiday hasn't been too hectic and you've been able to enjoy it.  If not, do so this weekend!  Thanks for reading!!

J.Crew Bangle // West Elm Mug // Anthom Bomber // J.Crew Music Egg // Nars Lip Pencil // Anthropologie Candle //  Asos Coat // J.Crew Skirt // J.Crew Necklace // Madewell Socks // Fireball Whiskey // Gap Cardigan // West Elm Glass // Zara Scarf

With Christmas right around the corner I thought a gift guide was only necessary.  This one is for the everyday girl with a little punch.  Not too cool not too sweet.  Some of these are definitely my favorite things and some are things I have never tried (the nars lip pencil, so cool!) No matter how much you want to spend on this girl, you can most likely find something here!  FYI the music egg works amazing and the candle is a staple at my house.  Happy gifting!!

 J.Crew Flannel, Similar // c/o Handvaerk Henley // Tinley Road Leather Skirt, Similar // Madewell Bag // J.Crew Booties // Target Watch

I don't know about you but there is something you cannot deny about a good knit.  It's an important part of any closet seeing as their functionality is incomparable.  I oftentimes wear them on their own, under cardigans or in this case a flannel as they are the perfect layering piece.  I wore this outfit over the weekend when we went to get our Christmas tree.  Side note, it was way too hot to layer, hence my flannel made it's way down around my waist.  Regardless, I'm always in the market for a good knit and I'm assuming you are too.  This Hardvaerk henley is soft, comfortable, and a great fit!  It definitely runs true to size ( I usually wear extra small, however this is a small and I think I would prefer the smaller fit).  Throughout the colder months this tee will definitely be on heavy rotation in my wardrobe and you should probably get your hands on one as well.

J.Crew Sweater, Similar // Asos Skirt // J.Crew Booties // Madewell Necklace, Similar // Selima Sunnies // Old Navy Clutch

Thanksgiving is a time for loose tops and comfy bottoms so there was no way anyone would catch me in any sort of tight pants.  That's how I decided on this outfit.  Loose on top and flowy on bottom, perfect for going in for second (and maybe third) helpings and then topping it off with dessert.  I can't believe it's the Christmas season and the countdown has  officially begun.  Time for lots of gifting and busy weekends!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend full of eating, shopping and decorating!  I know I did!
