Holiday Look // Bow Tights

Coat: Ann Taylor / Sweater: Marshals (old) / Skirt: JCrew (old) / Tights: Forever 21 (similar) / Booties: Ann Taylor / Hat: Orvis (my dads) / Sunnies: Ray Ban / Clutch: Sheinside

I got some of my Christmas shopping done yesterday thank goodness because I was quietly starting to stress out. (side note, I really don't do anything quietly) Why do days when you are not at work go by so dang fast? I literally woke up at the butt crack of dawn with the worst cramps (TMI - I know I'm sorry). Then the next time I looked at the clock it was somehow 4:00pm! WHAT!! Why does that not happen at work! When I am at work I look up and its 10:15am. 

Anywho -- since I have started blogging I have started to reminisce on the history of fashion. I have always had a soft sport for it and fashion history was my favorite class in college, I know poor me, I took fashion history and visual merchandising classes in college instead of Biology and Economics. #sorrynotsorry. I wish people still dressed up the way they used to back in the day, especially men. In the spirit, I borrowed this hat from my parents house, its my dad's and form Orvis so of course great quality, I am glad I know it is at their house now whenever I am having a bad hair day I can grab it! Sorry Dad! I have a few more holiday looks left for you all, so enjoy!

Holiday Look // Feathers & Sequins

Dress: Boohoo c/o / Heels: Boohoo c/o / Necklace: Forever21 (comes with two necklaces) / Lips: Mac / Earrings: TJMaxx

If you follow me in instagram (which you should) you have already seen a part of this outfit. My parents had their annual Christmas party this past weekend and this is what I wore. I seriously squealed when I opened the box from boohoo to find this dress inside. This dress also is available as a shirt, which I also need in my life ASAP. This is one of my favorite holiday outfits to date, and I got so many compliments (Thank you all!). I also am so in love with these silver sparkle heels, they come in gold and black too, they are super comfortable and such a great style with the cut out medial side, I am always a fan of that because then you get to see my tattoo that goes hidden most days of the year. If you have not looked on boohoo's site I swear you are seriously missing out, I am addicted (if you haven't noticed) and need literally one of everything they have. Everything is so affordable and such great quality, not to mention they are always having great sales to add to their already amazing prices. 

Yesterday was my last day of work and it never felt better, I know I have been talking about this all week but I have big plans for my holiday vacation this year. Also we are so excited for the new year. Kev and I had a pretty crazy 2014 and we are both ready for 2015 for a clean and fresh start. Do you feel the same way? Or was 2014 your year? I hope you all have some vacation time this holiday too!

Cozy Forest Green Sweater

Sweater: Boohoo / Skirt: JCrew / Shoes: Banana Republic / Scarf: Forever 21 / Clutch: ASOS (old) / Rings: The Love Knot Shop

Do you ever get frustrated at how hard it is to keep certain things unwrinkled. This skirt is one of those pieces for me. I love it, because well I love anything gold, but I just can not get it to stay without wrinkles, so I gave up and just owned it. I knew when I bought this skirt it that the material was going to be impossible, but I just can not say no stuff that is gold, it really is a problem. Do they have a GAA, gold addicts anonymous? I need to attend that and sparkle addicts anonymous. Side note, how amazingly comfy does this sweater look? Yea well it is more comfortable than it looks, and its crazy cheap, I bought at least 5 sweaters from boohoo this season and it was the best thing I ever did. I have gotten more use out of them in the few weeks I have had them than all of the sweaters in my closet combine. Like with this look, and here too! Also keep an eye out for another loom from boohoo, it includes sparkles and feathers, what gets better than that?

Faux Fur Leopard Jacket

Jacket: Forever21 (similar) / Shirt: Old Navy / Bra: Victoria's Secret / Skirt: TJMaxx / Clutch: Sheinside / Heels: Ann Taylor / Sunglasses: Kate Spade

Two more days of work until vacation. Holla! (no one says that any more, I know). I got this leopard jacket a few years back, and there is nothing that I love more than a piece in my closet that lasts the test of time. Especially because it is from Forever 21 and probably cost me maybe $27.80. In my mind that is a serious score. I am always a fan of lace and having a little lace popping through under a crisp white shirt is my jam, I love the details and quality of this bra from Victoria's Secret, also it is a demi cut, so its not too in your face, which when you go down this road it can get questionable really quickly. My fav combo, leopard, lace, and a little leather. Side Note: Ann Taylor is having an extra 70% off sale right now, and these booties are $42 (from $158)....yea your welcome.

Cobalt Plaid

Plaid Shirt: Old Navy (similar) / Sweatshirt: Forever21 / Jeans: Forever 21 (similar) / Booties: JCPenny / Crossbody: Fossil (similar & amazing) / Sunnies: Versace 

There are how many days until Christmas...ahh it is so seriously creeping up on me. I literally have not done one ounce of shopping, and by shopping I mean for other people because we all know I am always shopping for myself, so naughty. I am planning on doing all of my shopping this coming Thursday the first day of my holiday vacation (screams). I am literally so excited for vacation I could cry. I feel like this time of year I am always in need of a serious break, or is it that I am always in need of a serious break and just only get to really take one now? Hmm... 

I love how vibrant this shirt photographed, it is just as bright and amazing in person, I think I could own every color or the rainbow in plaid shirts, I am probably half way there. I think I need this maroon color next. They are just soo versatile, especially in the winter, they are perfect for layering or adding just a pop of color. For example, my mom was amazed at my sequin skirt, plaid shirt combo that is coming to the blog soon. It seems weird but I promise it works, plaid is like a neutral, along with stripes, and animal prints, and well pretty much anything and everything these days is a neutral. So do as you wish.
