It’s been snowing a lot here in Little Rock but I finally got to do a little outfit shoot. I found this red skirt at the Goodwill in Hot Springs, and I loved the pattern and the color. Since I was going to be on my feet all day, I wore my black Calvin Klein kitten heels -Calvin Klein has the most comfortable heels to work in!
I hope everyone has been doing well. I know I’ve been getting a lot of questions about where my weekly posts have been. I decided to take a break from blogging for a bit, but I’m getting back into it. I can’t wait for the spring and better weather!

Keeping it Fierce

My favorite boots this season are my Altuzarra boots! I feel absolutely fierce every time I wear them. The only issue is that they are such a big statement that I have to tone my other pieces down.

Keeping the overall look very casual and clean, I wore my cashmere sweater. With these boots, tight jeans are a must. I got these on sale at American Eagle. I wore a longer coat so I would at least be covered up a little more, and I’ve been obsessed with it! It’s my favorite Goodwill find as of late!

 

Make this Monday a happy one. ;)

Celebrating for the Holidays

My favorite part about little holiday parties is the decisions on attire! Whether it’s a little get-together to celebrate the season or a black tie affair, bringing in fun color, sparkle, and class is a must.
Instead of going to buy something new right away, rummage through your closet and try on those pieces that you really like but never had the chance to wear. These can be better than anything you could find at a store. I’ve had this dress in my closet for probably 3 years now. It’s never been one I liked until recently I re-tried it on and I absolutely adore it. Even if you don’t have a sparkly dress already, you can always wear a solid colored dress and stick with jeweled accessories and colored lips.
Have a great holiday! <3

Layering for comfort is a must in the winter, especially in the colder areas!. Knee high socks are in, but like some other pieces the socks can completely change the tone of the outfit. I prefer to wear tights with the knee highs for a more sophisticated look. This is my go- to comfort look when It’s freezing outside.

Hey there! I’ve been working and decorating my room a bit. I will try to take pictures of the finished product! But I’ve yet to even paint! Haha.

So I know one of the more expensive pieces to buy during the winter is boots. Since there are all types of styles it’s hard to decide which pair to splurge on. I’ve come to a consensus and decided this year I wasn’t going to replenish my comfy riding boots that I love so much. I bought from Sam & Libby brand boots from Target last year, but I’d prefer to spend more money on boots that will last longer. I actually got these leather ones at a rummage sale in August. It’s a once-a-year sale and it’s AMAZING. I bought these for $5 and didn’t even think to look on the inside because they had practically no wear..

Later on I ended up realizing I scored a pair of Bally boots! I was absolutely thrilled because I thought they were just some random brand. Sometimes the best finds are ones you never realized you got. .

I hope everyone has a great Friday! :)

Hello hello!
It has sadly been a while since I’ve posted. I could come up with an excuse as to why I haven’t, but I won’t.

So for the past week and a half here’s all that has happened:
1. I moved into a new house!
2. I’ve struggled with the idea of letting days pass by without posting, not realizing that working, moving, and all the things in between have been distracting me from my passion. I think that’s an issue with most people, though. Life goes on!
3. I started a yard sale box! This is pretty awesome to me, because I’m an avid visitor of yard sales, so why not have one of my own? I know you’re usually supposed to have one BEFORE you move to your new place, but it didn’t work out that way.
4. I’ve been on a cooking frenzy! I’m usually not that into it – I go for my usual breakfast bar and a water before I run to work. Lately, though, I’ve actually started really cooking! if you know of any awesome recipes, I’m dying to try a few! I’m a beginner, so nothing too complicated, please.

The Arkansas weather has wavered between hot and breezy and super cold. I wanted to wear a long sweater with my overalls but it got a little hot, so I stayed with a cashmere top that was just right, temperature-wise. This is one thing I can find at almost any thrift store.
Patterned flats are a great piece. Leopard print isn’t usually my thing, but I loved these Levity flats when I saw them at DSW. I’ve been wearing them all the time with simple black pants, dress, or a blazer. Simple. Cute. Stylized!

Anyway, I hope everyone has enjoyed the beginning of November! I’m going to be posting more frequently like I used to. <3

It started getting a little chillier here, and the greatest part about that is all of the layers I can finallly wear without being overheated. I wanted to take a fall color and highlight it with black and gold. A short black skirt and tights with sleek black boots is a super easy outfit to pair.

I’m all about dressing up and feeling great about how I look. I’m all about a slinky, sexy look that makes you feel confident.

The intricate detail of the blue silk and black velvet matches well with an otherwise simple outfit.

I was inspired by the dark brown makeup palette of the 1930’s, though I kept it fairly light to match my skin tone.

What’s your favorite date night look? :)

Even though it’s October, it’s still too warm in Arkansas for autumn apparel. I’m looking forward to wearing all my sweaters and fall coats, but for now I went with a vintage, earth tone ombre dress. I found it at an estate sale and loved it – the best thing about it is its simplicity, which gives it plenty of stylistic diversity. The colors have be that little bit of autumn without overheating me.

I hope you’re enjoying October this far! :)

Have a great rest of the week.
