Black Friday






VEST Similar (HERE & HERE)//JEANS//BOOTS Similar


I am really loving vests this fall/winter season. This vest is comfy and I love the dark color blocking on it, I got it a while ago from Bohme. Banana Republic has some of my favorite styles for outerwear right now, you have to check them out. Especially their vests, so dang cute! I have those similar vest options linked above, they are great to pair with some boots and jeans! So here's a black outfit for this annual shopping day! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend :)

Comfy Cozy












One of my favorite things about the fall season is definitely comfy sweaters. My two favorite styles are sweater dresses and turtleneck sweaters, I always feel that they are fashionable ways to embrace the cozy weather. I've partnered with ThredUP on this post to show you these cozy sweater styles. ThredUP is a great place to find amazing deals. The sweaters from this post are from BCBG and White House Black Market, and 90% off of retail value. Also, I don't know about you but I'm crazy about clutter and things I never use, so I clean out my closet every season. Yes every season. Haha! Which makes using ThredUP to buy and sell clothes not only an amazing place for those declutter queens out there, but also super convenient and great for the planet. If you like designer clothes at discounted prices I highly recommend checking them out! They also have such wonderful customer service that can help you with any questions you have :) Both shoes are from FOREVER21 and the purse is from Francesca's. I hope you all are enjoying your weekend and this cozy weather! Thanks for stopping by! 
XOXO

Blouse & Jeans







BLOUSE (Size: 2)//JEANS (Size: 25)

It's fall and we're all about the sweaters, cozy jackets, and scarves, but what about a cute fall blouse? Don't get me wrong, those are all definitely some of my favorite things about fall, being able to wear those cute colder weather items. But if you ladies are looking for a little change from some of the fall staple items, try a cute and feminine blouse. H&M has adorable blouses that are not only flattering, but also in that fall color scheme. You can pair it with some cute boots/booties/scarves/or jacket. Mix and match your accessories to have a different look! I got the bag and booties a little while ago; bag from TJMAXX and booties from ALDO
Have a great Monday! :)

Fall Friendly Dresses









DRESS//JACKET (Similar)//BOOTS

Happy Saturday :) Today I'm talking about these more form fitted dresses. I clearly have a preference for this style because I've been living in these dresses since the summer, haha! But they are so comfortable and versatile. So, for this post I wanted to talk about how to make them more fall friendly. For the first look I paired the dress with a cardigan and black flats. Incorporating a fall scheme colors into summer trends will make the outfit match the season. For the second look, I just paired the dress with a jacket/shirt I got the from PACSUN forever ago, love it because of it's pleather sleeves. But shirts/flannels/even leather jackets always look great with these dresses. In the summer I would have just worn these dresses with sandals or some fun wedges and statement jewelry. But boots and flats are great options for the cooler weather. I hope you enjoyed the post and are having a fun weekend! 
XOXO

Flannel







FLANNEL (Size: XS P)//JEANS (Size: 25)

One of my favorite fall staple items are flannels. I'm fairly particular when it comes to flannels because they all fit differently. Not only does the material vary, but so does the actual fit. I typically like a more cotton flannel and for them to be not so fitted, but not drown me either. I usually don't have problems finding them at FOREVER21, for some reason they just fit me better. But I found this one above from JCREW. I love JCrew especially their petite selection, but if you haven't checked out their flannels just yet... I highly recommend doing so! I hope you all are having a wonderful week!
XOXO

Shift Dress







DRESS(Size: 00)//JEWELRY//TIGHTS//Similar SHOES (Size:6)

This year is really flying by, I can't believe that it's already November. I love November because it's the beginning of the holiday season. Thanksgiving and Christmas are just right around the corner. Which means holiday parties at work/school, getting together with friends and family, and just celebrating! So I figured what better way to help with some holiday style inspiration than to share one of my favorite styles. Today I'm sharing a dress from JCREW, they have so many cute dresses on sale for 30% off which makes it the perfect time to check out what they have in stock! This is a great holiday party/church/whenever you want to be just a little more fancy dress. The shift dress is one of my most favorite styles because it's timeless/simple and forgiving without being too casual. This style was made famous by the classic Aubrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy (a few of my style icons).  This dress doesn't tug too tight and is a style that can compliment any body type. What are some of your favorite dress styles for the holiday season?

Blue Cotton Dress








DRESS//SHOES//JEWLERY from (FRANCESCA'S)

Happy Monday! Only 4 more days until the weekend ;) I'm starting off the week with one of my favorite pieces to wear, a fitted cotton dress. They are comfortable and feminine. I could probably live in this dress because it's so comfortable. The length is perfect and I love the cut of the sleeves. To make them more fall appropriate I usually pair them with booties or a jacket. I found this dress at COTTON ON for less than $30, and they have so many different colors. They have even more options on their website, check them out! :) I hope you all have a great day!
XOXO

My Long Bob




 I cut  almost 10 inches off my hair a couple weeks ago and I'm finally getting used to styling it! Yes, that is an accomplishment for me ;) For this post, I'm talking about one of my go-to hair styles.

So for you ladies that...
1.  Just chopped your hair and are trying to get used to the different length
2. Are thinking about chopping it and are looking for styles
or
3. Are just following along :)

 Below are the steps I take to get a quick and styled look.

((From right to left))
1. After I wash my hair I almost always let it air-dry. The only time I blow dry my hair is if I'm in a hurry, other than that I just don't. So, after it's dry I usually let it part naturally and then section off pieces and start curling from the bottom to the top. 
2. As I'm curling, I use the technique that everyone uses... Where I rotate curling the pieces of my hair from towards my face to away from my face. So all of the curls aren't totally uniform. 
3. Then I use my straightener to straighten some ends... I don't do this all over my hair. Just for pieces that I feel that got too curly. 
4. Lastly, I run my fingers through it and part it how I like :)

I love this style because it's so quick, it takes me 5 mins in the morning and I love that. I hope you all are enjoying your week!

Midi Skirt + Button Up






BLOUSE (Size: Petite XS)//SKIRT (Size: 2)//BOOTIES (Size: 6)//PURSE-Similar//NECKLACE-Similar//BRACELETS

Midi skirts are all over the place this year and I love it. They are fashionably classic and can work with any season. Being 5'2, I have a hard time actually finding midi skirts that don't completely drown me. So I'm pretty picky about them, but this skirt is from ASOS and I'm in love with the fabric. It's comfortable and not too heavy. I've found that the "skater" dress/skirt style work best with my body type. So for you ladies that have my same struggles, those are highly recommended. I usually wear this skirt with a plain blouse tucked in or a henley shirt, but button up blouses are also a great option! BANANA REPUBLIC is also having a 40% off sale on selected items and this top is included along with adorable plaid shirts too! You have got to head over there ASAP ;) 

XOXO
