Plaid Wrap Mini Skirt & a Boatneck

Plaid Mini Skirt with Boatneck Top

Always behind on blogging... This I posted on IG last week. One of my favorite holiday skirts. Bought it at a thrift store a few years ago. It makes me happy and I think it's nostalgia. Growing up as a 90s child my fashion icons were Blossom Russo and Cher Horowitz. My divide between laid back boho and prep began at a very young age, to say the least.

Merry & Bright

Merry Christmas, dear friends. I desperately wanted to post this weekend but didn't bring my personal laptop with me. However, it was nice to spend the time away from social media for a few days and be with my family.

Warm Red Sweater and Distressed Jeans

Express Sweater with Black Jeans and Booties. Good Hair Day!

Pretty behind on posting. I know none of you will be surprised but it's been a very busy week for me. I pray next year will be easier on me in both work and my personal life. Organization is going to be the key to next year.

Holiday Gift Guide for the Beauty Guru

Holiday Beauty Gifts for the Beauty Enthusiast // MAC Viva Glam // Tarte Blush // YSL Matte Liquid Lipstain // ABH Palette // Peplums & Pie // Beauty Gift Guide

There was an article in the Huffington Post that I read quite a few years ago on how beauty impacts women even in the recession. It's commonly know as the "Lipstick Effect" which essentially states that despite a low economy, women will still by lipstick because it makes them feel attractive at a low cost with high results. It's fascinating that something so small can make you feel like a million bucks.

Which is why I have 2 lipsticks on the list for this gift guide. I would have added more but I had to stop myself because if I did, there would have been 10.

Holly Jolly Green Cut Out Sweater Dress

Green Sweater from Zulily. Cut Out shoulders. Tights and Bootie. Another good Hair day!

Holly Jolly Green! Hello friends.♥

This is a strange time of year for me. I've been busy since I started my new job but this is the first Christmas that I'm enjoying in Seattle. I've lived her for 6 years and this is the first year I feel the Christmas spirit. I listen to Holiday music in the car, sing to myself while waiting for the bus. I think and plan my outfits with the "holiday spirit".

Holiday Party Dresses 2017

Happy December!!! It's never too early to start dress shopping for Holiday Parties. I actually don't have a party that I'm planning on going to this year but I do have a charity fundraiser in February that I get to look nice for. I like getting a head start and it's a lot of fun to dream about going to company holiday parties.

This year I'm diggin' the red. Red is new. I literally own one red and black sweater and that's it. I've never owned a fitted red dress which is what I'm wander to this season. Both red dresses come in petite! I can't tell you how much I appreciate stores that sell petite. It's always the perfect hem.

The other two are ritzy and fun! They'd be perfect for New Years or an elegant winter wedding. That Lola ombre is dreamy. Picture yourself with a glass of champagne and a nice night out. It's everything.

Love to know what outfits others are going for this Holiday season.
