Well my friends, the long anticipated season of the year has finally arrived! Is it just me, or has this past Winter been the most awkward/longest Winter EVER?! I mean I think I speak for everyone when I say...WE ready for you Spring! What better way to celebrate the new season, than with a cute dress and even cuter accessories. This Spring is all about stripes, blues, bell sleeves and ruffles and this number from She In has all the above, for a price that you just can't beat. I'm in love, and my closet has become full with this light, summery shade of blue. I can't wait to share more looks with you guys. 

One of the things that I adore about the change to the Spring season are longer days, cool mornings but warmer evenings. It's always so hard for me to get adjusted to springing forward, but my JORD Woodwatch has been keeping me on my P's and Q's when it comes to being on time. I love the unique crafted feature of the contrasting woods,and how this watch has the ability to really edge up and differentiate any look whether casual or dressy. Jord offers unique watches for both men and women! There is something for everyone- with different shaped faces, colors, and wood textures. Trust me, you need one! 

It's your lucky day, because I'm giving you the chance to receive $100 towards any JORD watch of your choice. Also, you will receive a $25 consolation just for entering! You can enter by clicking the link below. Times a tickin'! Whatcha waiting for?

Happy Friday, friends! We made it through yet another week. And I'm so grateful! I'm looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation. Thank the Lord for the invention of weekends. For renewing your mind, body and soul and just being. I don't think I really began to treasure and understand the importance of weekends until recently.

 I mentioned in a previous post earlier this year, that I was working every Saturday for a local bridal boutique on top of my full-time job in corporate retail to pay off some debt quicker. While I enjoyed helping beautiful brides to be find their perfect gown, the rest my body needed was essential for me to give my all to my full time job and to this little corner of the internet. I'm thankful to the Lord for lessons learned and for provision in my efforts to financially set myself straight. I've been living for the 2 days of the week that I get to myself. When I get to decide if I want to wake up early for cycling, or just sleep in or if I want to spend the night drinking wine and laughing with friends. So, cheers to the weekend!

I have been sticking to light layering these days and I especially love a good striped top. I picked up both this quarter length striped Who What Wear top and velvet spaghetti strap  top the other week at Target on clearance. I couldn't say no to the simplicity of the striped top, an easy workwear piece and casual too. I also thought that this velvet piece would be a great addition to my wardrobe for this year's holiday season as I don't see the velvet trend going away any time soon. I am loving how all of the trends are bringing me back to the 90s and my middle school days- the nostalgia *hashtag all the heart eyes* 

What are some of your favorite weekend leisure activities?

Mix It Up

Camouflage Utility Jacket: Old Navy. Black & White Stripped Cotton Tee: Old Navy. Necklace: Old Navy. Black Skinnies w/ Leather Detail: Marshalls. Animal Print Pumps: Nine West. Bag: Marshalls

Hey  yall! If you spy something that looks very familiar in today's post then you're spot on. I styled this same black & white stripped cotton tee from Old Navy earlier this week which you can find here. I'm unashamed when it comes to wearing the same piece in a different way. Sometimes all you have to do to create a new outfit is mix up pieces that you already own which is the best because spending money isn't required! I'm a firm believer in mixing up pieces in your wardrobe and really getting your fair wear out of them. Just like I'm getting my fair wear out of this gorgeous bag...sorry not sorry! I just can't get enough. Unlike other fashion bloggers (which if you're like me then you follow aton), I'm unable to afford putting together a brand new outfit with different pieces from high end brands every day. I want people who follow along and read my blog to be able to relate to me and my style and to actually afford it! I love the comfort and fit of this Old Navy black and white stripped basic top. You can easily dress it up or down depending on the look you are going for. When building your wardrobe, I believe that every girl should have the essential skinnies and a pair of animal print pumps. Black skinnies will be your BFF in the fall/winter in that they go with basically everything whether its this super cute Camo utility jacket, a slouchy but chic baggy sweater/poncho and more. Animal print for me is an obvious yes in any case! I'm clearly obsessed. It's edgy and elegant when paired with the right outfit combo. Don't be afraid to wear pieces that you own more than once but in a different way! You'll be surprised what kind of looks you can put together with items that you already own!

Stripes X Animal Print

Black & White Stripped Tee: Old Navy. Black Leather Midi Skirt: French Connection- Belk. Gold & Black Necklace: Old Navy. Leopard Print Pumps: Nine West. Handbag: Marshalls

If someone could please tell me how we are already in the month of December that would be great. K thanks! Crazy to think that the year is almost over. It's the most wonderful time of the year! I get so giddy just thinking about the pure joy and magic of the holidays. The music, the shopping (for others of course ;)), the smell of fresh evergreen, and cheer in the air. It's almost more than my little heart can handle before bursting with excitement that Christmas time is finally here. AND, my birthday is right around the corner! December 13th to be exact. I'm accepting any and all forms of love offerings :) With the holidays comes the stress of figuring out what to wear to holiday parties. Us girls will look into a closet full of clothes and claim that we have nothing to wear. Oh, I've been there. Many times. Leather continues to be a chic trend for the winter and holiday season. I absolutely love the fit and flare of this French Connection leather midi skirt from Belk. Pattern mixing continues to be one of my favorite ways to really make an outfit pop. I paired this leather midi with a white and black stripped cotton tee and my new, Nine West leopard printed pumps. Holiday parties don't necessarily mean that you have to wear sparkle from head to toe because not everyone loves sparkle. This is a simple yet chic look that could easily go from work wear to holiday party glam. What trends are you guys loving for the holidays?

Denim & Stripes

Maxi Dress: The Gap. Distressed Denim Vest:  JCPenny. Clutch: The Buffalo Exchange. Nude Wedges: Charlotte Russe. 

So, I somehow managed to get my boyfriend to snap some blog pics for me while he was in town a couple of weeks could of been the twinkle in my eye lol or my irresistible BIG smile ha! Totally kidding. Whatever it was, he did a pretty good job acting as my photographer that day! Thanks babe :) MAJOR brownie points, right ladies?! That day, the weather was particularly cool, but I had my mind set on wearing something simple, comfortable, cute, flowy and springy because it was so dreary! and just like always I went for the maxi dress! Go figure. My boyfriend actually picked out this super comfy, striped knit maxi from The Gap. It was a just because gift and those are always the best gifts. He's super thoughtful and I'm so thankful for him. I love everything about it. The length was perfect, and the fact that the sleeves are three quarter length made it warm enough to wear that day. I love me some stripes almost as much as I love me some prints! I paired it with my favorite distressed denim vest, and a simple pair of nude wedges. Happy Friday!
