I’m back! I am so sorry for being MIA this past week and a half! I took a break from blogging as I was working a ton and came down with a nasty virus. I literally came home everyday last week and climbed back into bed. Not fun. Anyways, I’m feeling 100% better and am so glad to be back!! I’ve missed you!

For me, November always marks the beginning of the most wonderful time of year. I get so excited about the holidays and enjoying all of the festivities, it’s unreal. Therefore, upon receiving this top (Down by the Water top) from August Wrinkle, I was ecstatic. How much more festive can you get than sequin peter pan collar?!?! This top is SO adorable, and I’m SO excited to wear it this holiday season. What I love most about it? It is one of the easiest pieces I have ever owned to take from day to night wear.

I took it for a pre-holiday outing, pairing it with a leather skater skirt (Does this skirt look familiar? Remember it from THIS post?), a black blazer and leopard loafers. I’m definitely planning on being a repeat offender with this outfit without the blazer (see below) on a night out this holiday season!

    Sweetest little outfit. Girly, feminine and stylish all at the same time. The leather skirt is so versatile, it can be paired with literally anything. I love wearing it with a cute jumper or a cute chiffon blouse
