We are approaching the most wonderful time of the year and it is crunch time for checking off your list of gifts to buy. You can see each of my gift guides under the tab, however, I wanted to put a round up of each one below and my top 5 favorite items from each! So, without further adieu….
Good Morning & Happy Wednesday!
Is it crazy to already be talking about Valentine's Day? I feel like Christmas and the New Year were just here, and now it's already almost time for Valentine's Day, oh how time flies!
Valentine's Day, while I feel it may or may not be a Hallmark holiday, I actually enjoy it. It's a day where my husband and I do the same thing every year. For our first valentine's day together, we went out and had a fancy dinner to have a romantic night just the two of us, however, we quickly realized that we can have that by sitting at home, cooking dinner together and just talking.
Even though we don't go out to dinner, I still like to get dressed up and sit at the dinner table while we eat. So I have put together the look below, as well as a shoppable look book of my favorite pieces for Valentine's Day. There is everything from dresses to tops & earrings, but the majority is all red in celebration of the holiday!
Also, the flare jeans I am wearing in this pictures below are my absolute favorite. I had been searching for flare jeans for about 4 months and I finally have succeeded! They are so comfortable and are high waisted, I can't stop wearing them!

Valentine's Day Outfits
It's the Holiday Season!
One of my favorite parts about this special time of year is that there are so many parties going on! From Christmas parties to weddings, this month, specifically, is jam packed with different events. Some friends are having bonfires/cookouts while others are having dressier events like New Years Eve parties at the Aquarium.
One thing that always seems to stump me is having a different outfit for each of these events (because who likes to wear the same outfit each weekend to different parties? ;) ) My other favorite thing about this season is SALES! So many of my favorite brands are having SUPER sales right now, meaning that this is the best time to shop!
With all of these sales going on, now is the best time to get your Work Party dress or your New Years Eve outfit! I have put together some of my favorite looks, anything from casual for a holiday cookout to dressy for New Years Eve. Below the looks is a lookbook of my absolute FAVORITE outfits of all my favorites for the month of December.

Happy Happy Wednesday, Friends!
We are half way through the week, which means that we are getting that much closer to Christmas! From the comments/dm's I have received, it seems as though a lot of you are really liking the #WorkWearWednesday posts that I have been doing. So for this weeks post, I thought it would be fun to do a "Holiday Edition" post, seeing as though Christmas is right around the corner!
For this weeks Holiday Edition, I am posting one of my favorite skirts that can be worn to tons of different events. Pair it with THIS top pictured below and have the perfect outfit for work, or wear it with a gold shiny top for a Christmas party.
I am wearing a size 2 in this skirt and would say that it runs pretty true to size. Loft sizing is always a little bit different than others, but for this skirt, it is standard with their sizing. For THIS top pictured, I just LOVE it. The color of it is a purple/berry color and it is wider at the bottom so I also wear it with bootcut jeans and heeled booties for date night out to dinner and a movie :)
Quilted handbags are seriously my jam right now, I want every single one I come across. They are so perfect, not just for the holidays, but also for all winter long. My mom was actually the first person I knew to have one, she found a Vera Bradley one about four years ago and I've been hooked every since! I guess I should take style tips from my mom more often!
My bracelets and necklace are from one of my absolute favorite people on this earth and friend since before we were even born. Her collection, called The Goldbug Collection, is a true favorite of mine and is well-known for her Charleston inspired "bugs". I have post about them many times before and I will continue to post about them, so don't worry, you'll see more and more of her new pieces in my upcoming posts ;)
So, without further adieu, say hello to my first #WorkWearWednesday: Holiday Edition!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Holiday Season!
YOU GUYS..... We are exactly two weeks away from the BEST day of the year, CHRISTMAS MORNING! This is something that I look forward to all year long: waking up with the excitement of fresh coffee, spending the day with your family, baking "fadges" (one of my dad's specialties, pretty much flour and water, super healthy;) ) or whatever your holiday traditions may be, it seriously is the best day of the year!

This year I have had trouble trying to figure out what to ask for. I asked for some new mixing bowls (you know you're officially an adult when that is at the top of your Christmas list), an outside heater so that I can enjoy the porch all winter long, but besides those two things, I haven't been able to think of anything and a few of my friends have said the same thing.
So I have partnered with Kendra Scott wishing that you "Have A Holly, Jolly, Kendra Scott Christmas!" I put together a stoppable boutique of my favorite Kendra Scott pieces, most of them from their new collection and most of them being under $200! All you have to do is click on the picture of what you like and it will take you directly to the page!
Please let me know if you have any questions and I will answer as quickly as I can!
We are getting SO close to Christmas and I am seriously so excited! I keep adding more and more lights to my house, making christmas cookies, and I even have those Rudolph antlers and red nose on my car in celebration of the Holiday!
I just love Christmas time because everyone is cheery, friendly & it's the best time of the year! With Christmas comes colder temperatures and one of my favorite pieces for winter is a good turtleneck. I think they are great for winter because they never go out of style, they are great for layering, & they come in all different weights.
I have a huge collection of them in my closet, but I wanted to share with y'all some of my favorites that I know you will love too! First I'll show you how I styled them & at the end there is a stoppable lookbook of more of my favorites!

Turtlenecks For Winter
Happy Thursday, Friends!
I don't know about you, but I have been in the Christmas spirit for about two weeks now. I am that girl who starts decorating before Thanksgiving and is listening to Christmas music for almost two full months. Christmas is the best time of year and I have had so much fun decorating our new house for the first time.
One of my favorite parts about the holiday is gift giving, whether it be something big or small, I like to give those I love gifts that I know they will be able to use a lot. My favorite gift to give the women in my family is a scarf or poncho because it can work in the fall, winter, or spring! There are so many opportunities to wear them and they never go out of style!
When it comes to Christmas, I can never think of things to put in my families stockings that will mean something to them and that they will actually use. So I thought that over the next few weeks, I will have different categories of stocking stuffers each week to help you get some ideas. For week 1 of Stocking Stuffers, I'm focusing on Scarves and Ponchos!
For today's post, I put together a list of my favorite plaid scarves and ponchos (because who doesn't love plaid?!) and they are the perfect Christmas gift for mom, sister, or just a friend! The green plaid one pictured above is from Ivy and Leo, & the black & white poncho is from Vici Collection!
