50 Shades of Red

December 17, 2014

Remember that one outfit Emma Stone wore to the Met Gala in 2014, I definitely used that as my inspiration. I loved her look for the longest time and now I finally threw an outfit together in those colors. I've been stopped while shopping to be told I look like her, and I'll take that compliment any day. 

Holiday parties are happening and this is the dress I wore to my husband's work party. You cannot go wrong with a red dress for the holidays and this one was the perfect fit. One tip I would give anyone attending a holiday party is keep it simple. Overdoing the jewelry can really ruin an outfit. I wanted this dress to stand out so a great pair of earrings what all I needed. For the Christmas party it was 1920's themed and I dressed to the 9's with the hair and makeup. I had an absolute blast and M (that's what I'll call my husband) won a door prize.

New Year's Eve Look

December 15, 2014


New Year's Eve is right around the corner, yeah you read that right. I honestly feel like this year flew by and I haven't decided if that is good or bad. Of course with this lovely night approaching comes the never-ending search for the perfect outfit. I personally don't spend too much time looking for the right outfit, and you can never go wrong with a little black dress. I was asked by a lovely lady over at DailyLook to put together my go-to look for NYE featuring a LBD from their vast collection. They really have a dress for everyone!

I've been drawn to midi dresses and skirts recently so of course that was the dress I chose. I always want something that is versatile so when I shop for important occasions I always get something I can possibly wear again. Add a little sparkle and a red lip and nail and you are good to go! Did I mention I'm dying over this jacket, my next purchase.

22 + A Giveaway

December 12, 2014

It's official guys, I'm now in those ages where I really don't have anything to look forward to until I turn 30 {yes having a family and what not, but you know what I mean}. I know that might seem a bit overdramatic, but 22 doesn't seem crazy exciting. I'm an incredible homebody so the night consisted of Chipotle and Redbox movies with my lovely husband. I'm sure when I finally venture home I'll have a real party for my birthday.

Of course I couldn't pass up a photo shoot with balloons because do I really have an excuse any other time. I actually liked having a prop to take pictures with, minus the wind of course. Any who, lets talk about the real fun part on this post. I recently did a review of a Marley Lilly scarf and in exchange I was given a $50 gift card to keep or use in a giveaway. I decided to have a giveaway which is just in time for the holidays!
