Downtown Wheaton

So much fun exploring Steve's hometown but it is pretty cold! One of my best friends gave me this scarf before I left and it has kept me so warm during my trip! I forgot to bring my gloves today so this coffee was also keeping me very warm. These sneakers are super comfortable for walking around town! I linked my scarf and shoes below!

Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide

Christmas is only 4 days away and last night I finished all my wrapping and got everything under the tree! I shopped for some Christmas gifts during Black Friday this year and it was such a life saver, Christmas comes so fast these days so it was nice to have a head start!

 If you were not as proactive this year and let time get away from you, do not fear, my gift last minute guide is here! I have rounded up the best gifts 'for her' and 'for him' with clickable links for easy purchasing! The best part will get all of these gifts by Friday with Amazon Prime. So scroll down and click through my online book. I have a ton of amazing gifts at great prices for anyone in your life that you still need a gift for! 

I have worn this top a few times and I am obsessed with how soft it is. The bell sleeves are right on trend and such a cute detail that dresses up the most basic shirt! I linked a few similar tops to mine below.

The Perfect Tunic

This tunic is what dreams are made of, it is the perfect length, fit and fabric. I am always on the hunt for easy pieces like this where I can slip it on with leggings and boots then add my scarf and coat and get out the door! I am wearing a size medium and the fit is right on point, I love the slits down the sides which helps the tunic fit perfectly around the body. I have worn it a few times but switched out these boots with grey booties which dressed it up a little and gave it a different feel. Olive Ave boutique is offering free shipping right now so head to the link below to purchase this tunic and check out the rest of their adorable clothing! I hope everyone is getting through this week as smoothly as possible before the holiday! Christmas is so close!

Lace It Up

The lace up trend has been around for a little while and I love that it is being translated onto sweaters for the winter! It is such a cute detail that can be dressed up or down. This particular one is shorter in the front and a little longer in the back which is a great cut to wear with denim. It is also super warm and cozy which is necessary when purchasing sweaters. I wear them on repeat so I love when they are versatile and comfortable. I have linked the lace up sweater i have on below as well as a few others that are super affordable. My denim and shoes are also linked  below, I could not find my exact bootie but I linked a very similar one that is 40% off! 
The weekend is so close I can feel it, a lot of fun Christmas parties planned before we head to Chicago!

Camel and Plaid

There is something amazing about putting on a cozy sweater and heels, I love the balance of comfort and chic in one look. Camel colored anything is one of my go to's, it matches everything and is a great contrast with darker hair colors. I also really like the mock neck, it is not as intense as a turtle neck but gives the illusion of one. This particular sweater comes in 7 other colors, it is in stock in all sizes and the best is only $40! 
I have had these jeans for over a year now and I love them, they wash so well and the fit is on point! I linked a similar pair below that are on sale. J. Brand's jeans are such great quality so when purchasing them you know you will have them for a long time. It is a great investment piece that should be on your Christmas list! 
When I saw these plaid heels I fell in love with them but they did not have my size. So I kept an eye on them and I was able to snag them for $40! Unfortunately this color is no longer available but there is a red plaid, it is the same price and perfect for this holiday season...there are still some sizes left  so get them ASAP!

Oh Christmas Tree

Picking a Christmas tree is one of my favorite things to do! Every year we go and cut down a tree and pull out all of our decorations, ornaments and candles to make our home super festive. I love looking through all of the ornaments because they are all full of amazing memories, milestones and trips! We found the cutest tree, it is not huge but it is perfectly shaped and full. We ended up put it in the nook of our living room, this is the first Christmas in the townhouse so we had to figure out what looked best. Whenever I walk in the door and smell the tree it makes me so happy. 
This half fabric and half denim jacket is a few years old but always in rotation, it is a great layering piece, I linked a similar one below that is on sale below! This plaid is also one of my favorites, it is so soft and there are so many ways to wear it! This tank and denim have made many appearances recently! Lastly, my boots were perfect for this occasion. They are really comfortable and I love that there is barely a heel. They are great for a casual event because they are good looking and functional.

Fri - YAY!

Happy Friday!
 I have been decorating our home little by little throughout this week and it is getting me so excited for Christmas. It is so cozy with pine scented candles, garland, wreaths and lights. I am so excited to get a tree this weekend and decorate it to really make it feel like the holidays!
I have worn this cardigan multiple times since I got it, it is oversized and so comfortable! I have worn it with a black jumpsuit, a bodysuit and leggings as well as denim and a tank, it is a muted camo print with a little bit of a glitter in the fabric. It has pockets and is thicker which are both great features for this time of year. I put links to purchase it below!
I am so excited to share my eyebrow microblading experience! I have to go back for a follow up appointment so I will be posting all the details right after the new year. It will be full of information for you so stay tuned!
I hope you have a great weekend!

Black Friday

My sister and I decided to go Black Friday shopping this year and we had a very pleasant experience, we went to the Queenstown Premium Outlets a little later in the day and the lines were not bad at all! We got a lot of Christmas shopping done and spent some quality time together so it ended up being a great time! When getting dressed for the day I considered a few things:
1) Comfort - You have to be comfortable in what you are wearing. There is a lot of walking and you don't want to be adjusting yourself all day.
2) Layering - There is a lot of temperature change when walking in and out of stores so you want to be able to take layers off and on easily!
3) Trying On - Just incase you need to try a few things on you want to wear something that is easy to slip on and off quickly.
After all of those considerations I decided on a super soft long sleeve top with cut out details, a vest, distressed black denim and flat fringe booties. The black and white theme was also perfect considering the day! Check out my previous Instagram post to see one of my purchases from that day! Links to purchase this look are below!

Wearing my Black Friday purchase on this rainy Tuesday! I got this scarf at the Ralph Lauren outlet for $20! It is so soft and warm, I love plaid anything right now so I know I will wear it all winter long! I paired it with my go to crew neck tunic top, black leggings and my Tory Burch riding boots. I could not find this exact one online but I found a few other similar scarves and linked them below as well as the rest of my outfit.

I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving, I sure did. I got to see so many family members and we spent a lot of quality time together. Sad it is over but Christmas will be here before we know it. The weather was all over the place because we were on the water so this sweater and OTK boots were perfect for the occasion. The plaid contrast on the sides of this top is such a great detail and my OTK boots were like another layer over my legs to keep me warm. These boots are the perfect heel height for day time activities and so comfortable, I wore them for 10 hours and they felt great the whole time! They also come in a beautiful burgundy color as well! Links to purchase this whole look are below!

I am loving cyber Monday...all of my favorite stores are doing some type of sale! What purchases have you made today?!

Happy Friday...I mean Wednesday!
It is so nice to have the rest of the week off of work, isn't it?! Finishing up a few things then off to the shore to spend Thanksgiving with the family. We usually spend the day skeet shooting, catching up, eating (of course) and relaxing. Steve and I spend Christmas with his family in Chicago so its great to have this time with my side of the family!
This lace up top is such a great piece...It is so comfortable and the length is great for jeans or leggings! There is a wait list so put yourself on that and then check out a few of my other favorite lace up tops! Links are below. Safe travels!

Rose Gold Bomber Obsessed

Bomber jackets are one of my top favorite trends right now. I love the fit, all the different style options and how easy it is to put together a chic and fashion forward look! This tonal bomber jacket is so beautiful with the satin contrast. It is under $100, has pockets and comes in a black version as well. There are so many ways to style it but I decided to have the jacket as the focal point of the look and keep it as simple as possible. This necklace was the perfect accessory to go with this look, it is adjustable so it is super versatile. I am wearing a black bodysuit under the bomber jacket and it has been on repeat for a while now, it is so comfortable and goes with everything! Links to purchase this whole look are below!
