’tis the season to sparkle…

Good Day y’all!

I’ve been trying to write this post for the last half hour but due to a lil holiday hangover I am having quite the time trying to get my shit together!  If there is one thing I love more than anything it is dressing up for holiday parties and this year I am absolutely loving everything from sequins and fur to a classic, high-waisted party skirt… Thought I would share a few of my holidays looks so far this season.. plus a few others that may get you inspired! enjoy

The girl in the red blazer

Denim, Sweater and blouse all from H&M. 

Two weeks ago I purchased this amazing red blazer from H&M and I am absolutely loving it! Over the past few years I have learned that I have to try to be somewhat responsible when shopping so whenever I purchase an item I always try to go for something that I can wear to work or out with friends.. which can be a bit hard considering I work in a corporate office…

This blazer is one of those items that works in both environments and it is definitely going to be a power piece regardless of where I wear it! Today I wore it to the office with ripped denim, a sweater and lil black vintage booties. Pulled my hair up in a messy bun and accessorize  with gold hoop earrings..

Check out my pics below to see the different ways to style for this Fall & Winter!

Give a girl the right pair of shoes..

Happy Sunday! 

image1-2I know I have probably mentioned this once or twice before but in case you missed it I will say it again. I am obsessed with shoes and have been since I was little girl. My mom said that when I was little I would sleep with any new pair of shoes I got. I no longer sleep with my shoes but I am still just as much obsessed.

I have a lot of girlfriends that love to spend their hard-earned money on expensive bags or clothes but as much as I love a nice bag or an item of clothing I rarely spend over $150 on one single thing.. NOW shoes are totally different! I would pretty much spend my entire pay check on a pair of shoes if I could and trust me when I say there have been many moments where I actually think “F*CK my responsibilities”

Well, with that being said because I am a semi-responsible adult I have been trying to find some great deals and I was super excited when I found these OTK boots at Call It Spring. I was out shopping with Darryl when I spotted these lovelies from across the room. I was trying to give him my full attention since we were shoe shopping for him but I couldn’t stop staring at these boots. I didn’t leave the store with the boots that day because D told me I didn’t need another pair of OTK boots but let’s be honest what does he know about needing a pair of boots. So the second I got home I got online and bought them! They may not be the most practical and I may not wear them often but they were only $109 & they look super hot , so in my mind they were well worth it!

I’m wearing a size 6 so they are pretty accurate in sizing as I usually wear a 5 or 6 depending on the shoe.

Sweaters & booties & toques oh my..

Happy Saturday!

So as I mentioned in my first post I decided to put myself in a little time out for the month of September. I am ok with staying in but I am definitely struggling with the whole “sober September” thing.. Now don’t get me wrong I’m not a total boozer but I do love my vino and I am most definitely missing it.

Now I thought while I was in “time out”  that I would catch up on my reading, get some extra sleep, and maybe binge watch Netflix but instead I have been doing something that I know I should not be doing and that is… SHOPPING! ugh.. I just can’t help myself… I absolutely love FALL Fashion! Sweaters and booties and toques, oh my! I just might have bought myself a “few” amazing things.. Cant wait till they arrive!!

Stay tuned to see what I purchased! Just think pink wool coat, another pair of OTK boots, leather gloves and sweaters galore! This babe be getting ready for Fall!
