JACKET: Forever 21/ SHIRT: J.Crew / SKIRT: J.Crew (on super sale!!) / SHOES: Nine West (similar here) / CLUTCH: Tory Burch (old, similar here) / WATCH: Marc Jacobs / EARRINGS: J.Crew / LIPSTICK: Chanel

One word: stripes. Let’s just say I have had a fancy obsession with them for as long as I can remember. One may say there are so many ways you can go wrong with stripes, but I feel there are so many ways you can go right with them, especially when paired with great accent pieces. I snagged this J.Crew Turtleneck earlier in the Fall, and I just don’t want to stop wearing it! This outfit is a fun and simple way to lighten up the black and whites of winter, and you can’t go wrong with a mod, tan coat!

Have a great one, loves!

SWEATER: Forever 21 / SHIRT: J.Crew / SEQUIN LEGGINGS: Nordstrom / SHOES: Steve Madden (stellar price right now!) / CLUTCH: Asos (sold out, similar here) / SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban / WATCH: Marc Jacobs / BRACELETS: Swarovski & BTBJewelry

Ahhh these sequin leggings…literally the best purchase I have made for this holiday season. As you know sparkle is my thing (gold sparkle particularly ;) ), and when I found these, I knew they had to be a staple in my closest. The holiday season is a great time to had a little fun to your wardrobe, and these leggings are the best way to do so! And honestly, they can be dressed up for a night out, or dressed down for a day full of Christmas shopping!

I decided to dress up this number with pumps (Nordstrom as sooo many pairs for you to wear at holiday gatherings!), yet kept the top simples with a sweater layered over an oversized shirt. Comfy, yet classy ;)

Have a great Wednesday, sweets!

Success…

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

How many of you have had a day where you feel all the goals, desires, and dreams that you desire are just so far fetched? That everything we have done to get where we want to go, just isn’t adding up. Well, I want to let you know that you are not alone in this world of reaching your goals.

When you have a goal in mind, it’s hard not to want it right away. And when we do not obtain that particular goal in the time frame we desire, we become anxious and upset that we did not achieve it. I’m here to tell you that it’s okay. It’s okay to not to meet your goals.

We tend to all give ourselves extra pressure. Extra pressure, to be the best person we can be, to do well at work, to fit in- me being the biggest offender of all these! But, this extra pressure- it’s the stuff that hinders our chance at succeeding.

Let’s wake up each day knowing that we will make a step that brings us one step closer to any of our goals. Let’s only focus on who we are, what we’re doing and where we are going. All people that are ahead of our goals, let them be an inspiration- not a constant reminder that we are not there yet. And for those that look up to us along the way, let us be their guide, and a positive reinforcement that they too, can do it.

So, loves, I hope this leaves you with a little pep in your step and excited to tackle anything that we have in our minds to today!

COAT: Elie Tahari (similar) / DRESS: ASOS (similar) / BOOTIES: Aldo (on sale!!) / HANDBAG: The Limited (similar style here) / HEADWRAP: Forever 21 (similar here & here) / RING: LuLu’s /

LIPSTICK: Chanel “Crushed Cherry”

Confession: I HATE the cold. I have lived in New England all my life, and every year around this time I ask myself why. Single digit temps are just not my thing, guys! Since the brisk weather is something I can’t avoid here, coats have become a slightly over-stock in my closest, this Elie Tahari Coat being one of them! Paired with this dress, also styled earlier here, and the cutest headwrap, this style is honestly the perfect outfit for any holiday party (can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week!!). Hoping you all are keeping youself warm & cozy during these chilly days!

Happy Wednesday!
