Happy New Year's Eve!! I wish I had a fabulous outfit to share with you today but my husband and I usually stay home so theres no need for me to get all done up! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love bringing in the New Year from the comfort of my own home. Munching on snacks and sipping on champagne while watching all the excitement on TV coming from Times Square has actually become a tradition each year. I also don't have the heart to leave the kids at home, even if they are sleeping when the ball drops. I just like the fact that we're all home together! :)

Today's look is what I wore on Sunday. It rained all day and was literally coming down like cats and dogs. I almost didn't go out to take pictures but whats the point of owning a pair of Hunters if you don't go out in the rain? I may or may not have enjoyed splashing around! 

I wish everyone a safe and healthy New Year!! May you accomplish everything you set out to do!

Dressing Down Sequins


Top: Wetseal | Pants: Wayf | Sneakers: Converse | Watch: Michael Kors | Bag: Louis Vuitton

Hi everyone! Today I am bringing back the sequin track pants! (Last seen here). I received so many comments and emails about these pants and a couple of you asked how I would style them for a more casual look. In order to make these pants look more appropriate for day time wear I needed to make the rest of the outfit as simple as possible. These pants are so feminine that I wanted to throw in a little bit of masculinity into the mix and this baseball style tee did the trick. It was the perfect shirt to help play down the sequins while a cool pair of Converses sealed the deal to make these Wayf track pants day time ready! 

I hope you like this look as much as I do!

Thanks for stopping by,

Merry Christmas Eve!! My wrapping is done, baking is just about complete and the house is ready for Santa's big arrival tonight!

I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas!!

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend! I went to two Christmas parties over the weekend and this is one of the outfits that I wore. I wanted something a bit more casual and sophisticated, yet edgy and fun so I went with this faux leather sleeve blazer with matching pants. The sequin top added the right amount of glam to make this look holiday ready. 

I can't believe Christmas is only TWO days away! Most of my shopping is done but I have a ton of gifts left to wrap and a lot of baking to do! Hopefully I can get it all done today!

Flare It

Jacket: H&M (old) similar here and here | Top: LOFT | Jeans: Lucky Brand | Heels: GC Shoes | Bag: French Connection (on sale!!)

 I love a flare jean! It's so refreshing to take a break from the usual skinny jean. Sometimes you just have to switch it up a bit. I've looked everywhere for a pair that fit me and finally found this pair at Lucky Brand. They may be a bit too long, but i'm just going to say I was going for the Rachel Zoe look. That woman can rock a flare jean like theres no tomorrow! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Incognito


Coat: LOFT | Top: H&M | Jeans: Edyson via Nordstrom (not available) similar here | Boots: Tommy Hilfiger | Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli | Hat: Target


Some of my favorite outfits are ones that I put together just on a whim. I'm usually rushing out of the house, chasing the kids around to get ready and running up and down the steps because I forgot something. Today's look comes from just that. Having simple every day basics is a must, that are easy to grab and throw on. A classic white blouse is always a great option to have because it can be paired with anything. I love to wear mine with jeans for an effortless look. The most time consuming part of my morning would have to be doing my hair. On days when I just don't have the time to devote to styling my hair, I grab this trusty oxblood fedora. I've worn it a hundred times. (Last seen herehere and here.) This is one accessory I can honestly say I've gotten the most use out of and is great for the girl on the go! I also can't forget this amazing coat from the Loft. Every one needs a fun coat!

What is your favorite go to item?

Tis The Season To Sparkle


Top: LOFT | Sequin Track Pants: WayF | Heels: Jessica Simpson | Clutch: Hello Fab (sold out) Exact one here | Necklace: Benevolent Jewels

The countdown is on! Christmas is almost here! With holiday parties in full swing its all about dressing up and having fun. What better way to sparkle and shine for the holidays than by wearing sequins! It's always my go to look during the holiday season (well I actually love sequins anytime!). This holiday, instead of wearing the usual dress I thought it would be fun to wear these sequin track pants by WayF. I have the regular track pants that I bought in the spring time, so when I saw this great version, I just had to have them. They're ABSOLUTELY amazing and definitely a must have for any sequin lover out there! While I went for a more formal look here, I can't wait to also style them for a more casual day-time look as well.  

What is your favorite holiday look?
