New Years Eve in Shimmer Wrap Dress


Happy Thursday everyone! 
New Years Eve is right around the corner, literally 2 day shipping can save you if you are in a last minute bind in finding something to ring the New Year in! I love this Topshop wrap dress from Nordstrom that I am wearing in the above photos. It's super shimmery, super flattering and at a pretty affordable price of being right under $100! I have linked several options for your night out in the below widget. Click any images below to be redirected to the retailer to shop! Nordstrom offers $9 two day shipping so if you order ASAP you will be able to receive on Saturday, just in time!
Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas


 My pajamas: Top // Pants 
Pat's pajamas: Top // Pants 

Just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Is Christmas your favorite holiday too? It is just so magical and I love the traditions that come with it. My favorite part is when we light candles in Church and sing "Silent Night" in unison. It's just simply beautiful and I love the feeling of a church community coming together to sing one last song before we all head home to awake to Jesus' birth!
I wish you a Merry Christmas and may your day be filled with love and laughter celebrating the birth of Savior who came to save us all.

Merry Christmas!
xx, Brittany Ann

Family Photos & Protecting Heels at Outdoor Events

Bardot Off Shoulder Dress // Tory Burch Clutch // Sequin Heels // SugarFix Earrings // Ring // Lipstick "Passion Pop" // Grasswalkers High Heel Protectors

Here we are, just about to Christmas! Can you believe it? I absolutely can not!
Where did 2017 go?! I am excited to move into the New Year because the handsome stud in these photos will become my husband in 2018! Woo woot!

I have partnered with Grasswalkers to bring today's post. Have you ever been to an outdoor wedding and instantly regretted your shoe choice because your heels immediately started to sink? How about a sudden happy hour after work at everyone's favorite brewery that left you  stuck in heels walking through grass and you were afraid of stumbling or falling because you couldn't walk?  Or what about you find a pretty Christmas tree you want to take photos by and you are all dressed up but you are afraid of running your heels by walking in the grass? (ME!)  Well,  Grasswalkers has a solution for you. They have invented this nifty little product that can fit in in your handbag, clutch, the glove box in your car and can change your life. What is this life saving product? Grasswalkers are flexible transparent strips that adhere to the bottom of any heel and provides a platform so the heels will not sink. It's the easiest thing; simply peel the adhesive off the bottom and stick to your shoe! That is literally it! It doesn't matter if you're rocking a stiletto, a thicker heel, you do not need to think if the heel width will fit into a cap or anything because you simply stick the platform to the shoe and you're off to the races! When the event is over you can pull them off of the bottom of your shoes and they do not leave any marks! It's amazing!

I love dressing up for Christmas photos every year. I recently bought a tartan photo album and I want to add each year's family Christmas photos so we can have a collection over the years. Christmas is such a magical time and I know this little book will bring wonderful memories for years to come!. Our photos last year had our little Ruby girl in them, see those here and we took some with Ruby this year here as well!  My dress is from my favorite retailer, ASOS. It is a fit and flare style in a super soft scuba fabric. It's the perfect dress for Christmas Eve and you are in luck because ASOS can get it to you just in time! Order by mid day tomorrow (Thursday) and select 2 day ship. Spend $150 and they will automatically ship it to you in two days :-)

We leave to drive home tonight for Pittsburgh. I am so so excited to be home with my family! I have almost every day planned out with lots of fun things so you'll have to follow along on Instagram (@BrittanyAnnCourtney)! Christmas is in T-5 days!

Have a good one!

Ruffle & Lace Red Holiday Dress




 Lace Ruffle Dress // Striped Heels (cheaper version here too) // Gucci Marmont Bag // Clinique Lipstick "Cheer Pop"// Statement Earrings // Statement Ring

Hello friends and hello Monday! Christmas is just 7 days away! I simply can not believe it but I am so so so excited! I love packing up the car and heading home to Pittsburgh. The 7 hour trip can sometimes feel daunting, however, most of the time, Pat and I look forward to it. We listen to motivational speakers, talk about our goals, talk about upcoming plans or travels, all sorts of things. I really enjoy the time with zero distractions! We are heading home Wednesday evening which means from now until then I'll be running around trying to finish all that needs to be done but nonetheless, I am excited for it! Are you ready for Christmas?

What better way to get in the mood for Christmas being 7 days away than from wearing this pretty little red dress? It has all the girly frills- ruffles and lace. I just absolutely love this dress. The a-line silhouette is always a good choice. This is a super figure flattering shape for any body type. It cinches the smallest part of you (your waist) and lightly flows over your hips. It gives you that hour glass illusion! One thing I was super pleased with when I first tried this dress on was that the lace sleeves actually fit. I can not stand anything where the sleeves are too tight and I am happy to report that this dress passed the test, they fit perfectly! This dress is on sale for $46 & you can still get it in time for Christmas!

Hope you have an amazing start to your week!
Thanks for stopping by!
xx, Brittany Ann

This weekend I am off to Charlotte to visit one of my best friends. I haven't seen her in over a month so we are going to one of our favorite restaurants and enjoy some much needed girl time to catch up! 
I hope you are able to find time to relax this weekend! If you have any questions on how any of these items fit, feel free to DM me on instagram or email me! :-)
