Holiday Ready







Unfortunately all items are old but I will link similar items.

SHIRT: old (loving this instead) | SKIRT: Express (similar here, here and here) | SHOES: Nina (love these) | NECKLACE: Boutique 

I am finally back in Texas for the holidays!!  I am so excited to be home, but I am a bit jealous of the white Christmas they will have in North Dakota.  Let's be real though, snow doesn't beat being home.  I can't wait for C to join me on Tuesday.  Unfortunately he had to stay back and work.

I am so sorry I look like a vampire.  Obviously this girl has been bundled up for the past couple of months.  I will be fixing this soon though.  Spray tan here I come because this is awful!  I do have to say I am digging this outfit, though.  It is perfect for holiday parties, family gatherings, or even church.  I love that Christmas time gives you an excuse to add a little or a lot (let's be real) of sparkle to your daily wardrobe.  It is so festive for a time of the year that is truly magical!

On to the details.  I picked this skirt up last year on sale at Express for only $25!  It was such a score.  I paired it with a simple black top and an awesome necklace.  I love that this necklace is long so it makes a big statement without overwhelming me.  I couldn't find anything I really liked that was similar to the necklace, so another option for this outfit would be to pair it with a red crop top.  I actually just bought one today to wear with this skirt.  

I hope I have inspired you to glisten a little during the holidays!  Have a fabulous Monday!!

Thanksgiving Recap










SWEATER: Forever 21 (similar here & here) | TOP: Stein Mart (similar) | LEATHER LEGGINGS: Gianni Bini (similar) | SCARF: Old (similar) | BOOTIES: LC Lauren Conrad (similar here & here)

We spent Thanksgiving in Red Lodge, Montana and it was absolutely gorgeous there!  One of C's very generous friends let us stay in his house and we were so thankful to have the perfect getaway.

  We drove in during a snow storm which wasn't great for us because we have no experience driving in the snow.  In Texas, if we ever get ice or snow, we don't even think about trying to drive in it.  But it made for such a gorgeous stay in this mountain town.  The snow was so beautiful!  I can't tell you how many times I told C, "Just look how gorgeous it is!"  At night, I would just stare outside and admire the serene landscape covered in snow and thank God for the beauty he's given us to enjoy.

We weren't able to get the Cowboy's football game at the house so we ventured downtown to a small little bar.  I think it was the only place open.  Everyone there was so nice and it was a great small town atmosphere.  They even had a Thanksgiving buffet for anyone to enjoy!  After the game was over, we headed back to the house to cook and watch  movies.

I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful as well!

Also, I am so happy to announce I was featured on Living in Color and Stylin' in St. Louis as the Spotlight of the Week!  I couldn't be more excited about it.  Head over to their blogs to find out more about their weekly fashion link up!
