New Year Eve in Glitter Dress













New Years Eve is nearly here! I cannot believe that we are about to ring in 2018! New Years is a night of reflections, resolutions and fun. I still haven't yet settled on my NYE plans and I am still considering a night out on the town in Charlotte or hosting a small soiree at my house. No matter what I choose I'm looking forward to wearing the dress that literally glitters like gold!

 To be honest I'm leaning towards a at home soiree and I'll for sure be strutting around in this dress. I totally believe in dressing up just because, any excuse to get all glam and I am in! This dress has all the bells and whistles, and by bells I mean the most adorable bell sleeves that are nearly sheer. The length is perfect to dance the night away and there's a party at the back too with a peep hole. Looking forward to all that 2018 will bring!

 Always,

Happy Holidays: A Christmas Card











I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season thus far! There have been many blessings and so much joy this time of year that I have just about burst from happiness and cried from laughter.  I seriously considered sending out a Christmas card this year because I really enjoyed the ones I received from family and friends but I never quite made it around to creating one and also is it weird to have a Christmas card to yourself? Anyone ever done it?  If I had done one this holiday season these are the pictures I would have shared and along with this most fabulous dress too!

I love a good wrap dress and they are truly so flattering on everyone.  This velvet stunner has been my holiday go to and even with New Year's Eve looming I'm considering wearing it for the festivities.  If for no other reason, I think this dress is worthy of popping champagne!  I also think as the holidays come to an end that this dress certainly can carry over into the new year, I'm thinking Valentine's Day for sure!



Always,

Seven Days of Holiday Outfits: Day 3

There is nothing like the joy of the holidays! Sometimes going causal is totally a thing and for those occasions I opt for a cozy sweater + skirt combination! How cute is this sweater with the bow detail? I'm obsessed! This skirt is just the right length plus the contrasting colors make anything else an instant pop to the outfit.

With all the hustle of the holidays it's just nice to forgo getting all dolled up and teetering in heels because let's be honest ladies, after a few hours standing I'm pretty much wishing I could wear these velvet loafers for life. I love the alternatives when fancy attire isn't required but you can still show off amazing party shoes!

I really tried to keep up with the holiday outfit posts but unfortunately my schedule just didn't allow much time. This past week was a super busy time at work and I spent the weekend a little off the grid glamping in Asheville. Now I'm just all about soaking in the magic of the holidays but certainly wanted to share outfit inspiration!


Always,

Seven Days of Holiday Outfits: Day 2

Its only Wednesday? What a week its been already and my goal is to make it to the weekend! Day 2 of my holiday outfits series is another one of my favorite dresses! I've got my favorite holiday jams blasting and dancing around my living room because that's totally normal, right?

I live for a dress with some character and from my head to my (nearly) toes, this one fits the bill. Dress is a cozy knit material and the silhouette similar to a classic little black dress but the ruffled skirt... y'all I die! It cant be party season until this dress gets a twirl around town! You can dress down a bit with OTK boots like I did or go full blown holiday with some velvet ones like this pair I shared in yesterday's post and add some accessories as icing on the cake.  This little dropwaist was a surprise Amazon find and with a click of a button it arrived at my door in just 2 days! Now that's magic and if you're looking for a dress for that last minute party, order away my loves! This girlfriend is under $20, like really under $20, like $13!!!!!


Always,

Seven Days of Holiday Outfits: Day 1

I'll be sharing all the holiday outfits all dreams are made of over the next week! I teased on my Instagram that there was a series coming but I didn't mention that there will be a full week of posts. Yes, 7 days of holiday outfit inspiration that will lead right up to just 1 week before Christmas!

I'm starting off with this gorgeous printed dress! I really believe it is one of the most flattering dresses I own and so amazing for the holidays. This Nordstrom dress is a deep burgundy color with interesting pops of pink in the floral print. I love that the silhouette is flirty if you feel a twirl coming on but appropriate that you could still wear to a variety of occasions. I love paired with some velvet heels which as some texture interest and these are the best! This dress is actually on sale right now for just $35 and something I would definitely buy! It's something you can wear even beyond the magic of the holidays! Take my word for it, this one is too good!


Always,
