 Happy New Year!

I’ve been a little MIA the past few days! I spent the end of the year in California and a few days at one of my all time favorite places, Disneyland! I came back on Sunday just in time to jump into the work week, and have been just trying to get back into the swing of things in the new year. You may have also noticed I’ve been a little quiet on Instagram too…lucky me, broke my phone just before vacation and have been using a SLOW iPhone 4. Better than nothing, I know. But it is absolutely worthless when it comes to taking pictures! My upgrade is just a few weeks away, so I can hold on until then, but it isn’t it crazy how reliant we are on technology??

Anyways, these photos were taken just before Christmas, hence the Christmas colors! This coat is such a cozy winter staple, and I have been wearing it so much, especially with all of the snow we have been getting!

Fringe Cape

 Top: Nordstrom // Pants: DSTLD // Cape: Nordstrom // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Shoes: Louise et Cie, similar here // Necklace: Taudrey ‘Twenties Girl Style’ necklace // Sunnies: Ray-ban ‘Erika’ // 

This cape has probably been one of my favorite purchases this winter. I love that it goes with anything and everything and is perfect for a cold winter day! I love how easy an all black ensemble is, but throwing this cape over the top and adding a pop of red really puts the finishing touches on this outfit!

Instagram Roundup

Happy Monday! The official countdown to Christmas has begun! Has anybody else still not finished their Christmas shopping?? I have just a few last minute gifts to pick up and I am hoping to get it done today! 

Today, I am rounding up some of my favorite instagram looks! I’ve been a little MIA on the blog and Instagram lately, but hope to focus more now that I am on winter break…and continue on in to the new year! 

 A favorite holiday combo…red+plaid!

Sweater: Julie Brown Designs, also love this  // Scarf: ASOS (sold out), similar here and here //

 I love this sweater so much, I bought it in two colors! Such a cozy, easy to wear piece! It does run large! 

Sweater: Nordstrom // Pants: DSTLD (the perfect light grey)  // Boots: Franco Sarto (on super sale) // Bag: Tory Burch // 

 My casual Thanksgiving attire! This sweater is my FAVORITE. It comes in quite a few colors and is currently on sale!

Sweater: Nordstrom (on sale!) // Jacket: Nordstrom // Jeans: Old, similar here // Boots: Franco Sarto // Bag: Tory Burch // Necklaces: Bauble Bar Y-Chain, Taudrey ‘Autograph Plate’  // 

 I shared this outfit on the blog last week, and it’s definitely already been repeated a few times since then! This leopard sweater is under $15! 

Sweater: Target, also love this one // Pants: DSTLD // Shoes: Steve Madden, similar here and look for less option here // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (on sale!) // 

 A cozy coat and scarf combo! I love this bright yellow coat because the cheery yellow definitely brightens a drab winter day!

Another peek at my Taudrey necklace! I was so excited to team up with Taudrey to design this piece! It’s perfect for every day wear! Also, these boots are the PERFECT knockoff of a much pricer brand. I wanted to test out a pair of OTK boots before splurging on a pair, and these have made me realize how much I adore this trend. I think OTK boots are here to stay! Also, anybody else loving turtlenecks lately? This turtleneck top is currently sold out, but I am loving all of the great turtleneck options here

 Happy Tuesday!

The countdown to winter break has officially begun! 

Pardon the picture quality today! It literally snowed ALL weekend, and trying to take pictures in the snow flurries was kind of challenging. It also just made me realize how badly we need a new camera! My sister, Haley (see her amazing work here…you might even catch a glimpse of a few of my wedding photos…) used to be my main photographer. When her photography business picked up, she had little time to squeeze in our shoots, so my husband has been shooting on an older Canon, that can be temperamental! I am hoping to invest in a new camera next year, and also crossing my fingers that my sister can fit me in to her busy schedule soon!
