Old Favorites

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Dress: Forever 21 (similar) | Scarf: Forever 21 | Belt: Forever 21 | Handbag: Prada | Watch: Michele | Boots: Tory Burch (old, similar) | Earrings: Shop Fab G c/o | Lips: Russian Red by MAC

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!  I've been waking up extra early this week and taking Aviana to the park.  I feel like she releases all her energy at the park which is wonderful because she is nice and calm during the day (most of the time).  Aviana and I finally managed to get rid of these awful colds we've had, but unfortunately my husband is still sick.  I am hoping he feels better before Christmas.  Poor guy.  It's never fun having a sick baby or husband.

I have also been doing a lot of deep cleaning around the house and I have about 10 bags full of clothes that I will be donating.  I have a couple of nice handbags that I no longer use and was thinking of doing a blog sale.  Let me know if this is something you are interested in.

Anyways, while I was cleaning out my closet I managed to find a couple of old favorite pieces.  Most of the items I am wearing in this post have been sitting in my closet for years!  I feel like this is such a classic look.  A simple black dress is a must-have and I managed to score this one at Forever 21 a while back.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Over The Knee

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Top: Loft | Jeans: Loft | Hat: Urban Outfitters | Boots: Stuart Weitzman (on sale!) (similar, similar) | Handbag: Saint Laurent | Lip Color: Twig by MAC

These over the knee boots have been on repeat lately!  I have been wanting OTK boots for a while but I had the hardest time finding some that fit my petite frame.  I love these boots because they elongate my legs and are super comfortable.  Comfort is a big deal for me because I'm usually running after my active two year old!

On another note, can you believe Christmas is in 8 days?!  I haven't even started to wrap my gifts yet!  I'll probably be stressed out on Christmas Eve when I have 50 gifts to wrap!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Holiday Party Dresses + Makeup

Monday, December 15, 2014

Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I've been invited to a couple of holiday parties this year (and one ugly sweater party) so I am currently on the hunt for some cute and glam dresses.   I don't know about you, but I love getting all dressed up for the holidays!  I'll probably end up wearing all black because it's easy and versatile, and throw on black pumps and a red lip (Russian Red by MAC is my current favorite).   I've rounded up a couple of dresses on my wish list...

Also, I posted this makeup look on my Instagram and got a couple of questions regarding some of the products I was wearing.  I think this is a great look for the holidays.
Face Primer: Benefit POREfessional | Foundation:  Estee Lauder Double Wear (obsessed) | Concealer: Maybelline Age Rewind | Blush: Bobbi Brown in Sand Pink | Contour Palette: Anastasia Beverly Hills | Mascara: Dior Lash Primer and Mascara | Shadow Primer: Nars | Eye Shadow: Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette | Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills | Eye Liner: Milani | Lips: Russian Red by MAC

I would love to start sharing more makeup looks with you all.  Judging by my Instagram photos, you probably think I wear makeup everyday, but that simply isn't the case.  I'm a stay at home mommy so I'm usually makeup free or running around with just a tinted moisturizer or CC Cream.  But I love trying out new makeup products and playing with new looks so I thought it would be fun to start sharing them with you.  I recently purchased a ring light so I can film hair and makeup tutorials.  Just be patient with me because editing videos is not an easy task!

Hope you all have a great day!  ;)

Plaid + Faux Fur

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Top: Banana Republic | Vest: Forever 21 (old, similar and on sale!) | Jeans: Loft | Boots: Tory Burch (old, similar) | Handbag: Saint Laurent

I purchased this faux fur vest about two years ago and it was such a great find!  I bought it from Forever 21 and I love it because it can be paired with pretty much anything!  Today I paired it with a plaid top, distressed denim and my favorite boots.  

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!  We have been battling colds since getting back from NYC, so we've been lounging in our PJ's and watching Christmas movies all week.  I am hoping to get out of the house this weekend!  The weather has been beautiful and I would love to take Aviana to Zoo Lights soon!
