Fur Stole Accessory + Wintercoat

Fur Stole: Similar here & here // LeatherWool Coat: Michael Kors almost identical here // Black Skinny Pants: BananaRepublic// Earrings: BaubleBar // Handbag: Similar here // Lips: Mac Mineralize Rich Lipstick in "Everyday Diva"// Heels: Michael Kors (These most comfortable pair of heels I own)

Hello there! Can you believe Christmas is over and 2016 is upon us? It's crazy how the time flies by! Pat, Ruby and I spent Christmas home in Pittsburgh and although there wasn't any snow, and it was in the sixties on Christmas Day, it did drop down to low thirties on Saturday and Sunday. I absolutely hate the cold, but I was happy I was able to wear this coat combination with my fur stole that I am absolutely obsessed with!
 Michael Kors is one of my favorite brands; I love how comfortable the shoes are and how the garments are always made to fit so nicely. If you drop by often, you will most certainly notice that I do wear these a lot.  They go with everything andI can last wearing them in my ten hour work days. What else could a girl possibly ask for? Umm, how about a SALE on these amazing shoes? Right now, Michael Kors has an additional  40% off already reduced items. Check out the sale here! You will not be disappointed with these shoes! Drop a comment on what shoes you want or what shoes you bought!

Christmas Eve Holiday Dress

Dress: TheLimited - similar here, here, here & here // Clutch: Old- similar here, here // Bow Watch: Kate Spade (20% off) // Heels: Michael Kors, similar here // Bangle: House of Harlow // Earrings: Kate Spade  // Ring: Kendra Scott // Ring: Nordstrom Stackable Two Rings // Lips: MAC "All Fired Up" 

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas...you know the song, right?! Pat and I grew up in the same town and our families went to the same church. I feel really lucky because it is an incredible feeling knowing we share the same foundation and have the same focus on our beliefs and how we will raise a family one day. I am a strong believer in God's plans. My favorite bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future".  There are so many things that come into our lives, or are taken out of our lives, things that suddenly blindside ourselves with fear, sadness, disappointment. It is this bible verse, and this promise from God that really provides steadiness in my life and all that I do. I'm forever grateful that Pat believes in this with me, together we are freed of worrisome, and together we can more forward in loving God and following his path. Christmas Eve both of our families will attend church and then my family is having his family over for game night! One of my sisters recently had knee surgery so we are keeping it low key by hosting Christmas Eve at my parent's house, and then hosting Christmas Day as well with my mom's side of the family!
I know I keep saying this, but it is just the most wonderful time of the year! I'm so grateful you have stopped by. I'm excited to have you here on this journey with me!

Winter Accessories with my Rubybear

Striped Tee: here, here, here // Blanket Scarf: here // Beanie Cap: here and here // Handbag:Tory Burch // Jeans: Nordstrom  // Utility Coat: here & here & Camo Coat here  // Ring: Kendra Scott // Booties: Sole Society // Sunglasses: Blenderseyewear 

I just love when the air turns a bit chilly and I can throw on a good hat and a big scarf and head outside for a little walk in the park. This hasn't been happening recently in Charlotte, it was 74 degrees last week. Talk about the internal complex of wearing tights with a dress or not, I mean, it is December. Anyway, I love good print mixing with stripes and plaid. I always think the outfit looks fresh and interesting. I think some people are afraid of mixing prints, but you my friend, you're far more trendy than the average person, so go at it! My aviators are from Blenders Eyewear and this is one of my recent finds that I am obsessed with. I have a few Ray Bans, but sometimes I worry about taking them places with me, like the lake, and these Blenders Eyewear pair provide the same quality in blocking the sun, are just as cute, but cost a lot less! I suggest you head to their site to have a look!
I can't believe today I head home with Ruby and Pat. I miss my family, I can't wait to see them!

Navy Lace Dress for the Holidays

 Dress: TheLimited- similar here, here, here // Heels: Charles by Charles David // Clutch: Old, similar here and here // Ring: Kendra Scott // Pearl Bracelet: Forever21 // Pearl Statement Necklace: Similar here // Lips: Mac Cosmetics "All Fired Up"

It's MONDAY and for those of you who celebrate Christmas, like myself, CHRISTMAS is only four days away! I know a LBD is always a go to idea, and always a great one, but I love substituting navy for black. I think it looks beautiful on all skin complexes and hair combination and I think it can easily be as eloquent or casual as black, depending on how you style it! This dress is probably a bit bare for some of you in colder climates, however in 75 degree weather in Charlotte, I was comfortable! I have linked some longer-sleeved dresses for you cold climate gals! Just see the images above and click them if you wish to shop! During this time of celebration, I wish you all are able to spend time with your family and friends, and are able to break away from work and destress a bit!
