We’ve barely recovered from all of the craziness of Christmas and already it’s time to turn our attention to New Year’s. Most of my style is usually very girly, and black is not a common color found in my closet, but this little number was the perfect combination of edgy and chic.
This shade of MAC lipstick (found here) has been my go to for a bold lip color this season.

This dress is from Free People last year and is actually a slip that I paired with another solid black slip underneath (found here). Since New Year’s Eve is usually a little chilly (and I say usually because Houston hasn’t been getting the cold memo), I thought that this adorable faux fur coat was the perfect festive piece to go with. To me, New Year’s Eve is all about bringing in the new year in style. Make your outfit fun by adding in something that sparkles or pops!
Merry Christmas Eve everyone! I wanted to share with you another festive, holiday inspired look that I will be wearing for dinner and church tonight. I scored this cute dress at Express on black Friday a few weeks back and unfortunately they are now sold out of it but I have linked a few similar options below.

You can find similar options in varying colors to the dress I am wearing here, here, and here. I paired this look with a scarf I had from last year to keep my shoulders warm. If you have any oversized scarves they work very well as a shaw or even poncho since that trend is very big this season!
Happy holidays everyone! I really hope that you enjoy these few days with friends, family, and loved ones and that you remember the reason for the season…that JESUS was born! And from that, a beautiful story of how we would all become to be saved. Merry Christmas and may you be blessed today and always!
One of the many reasons I love the holidays is all of the festive outfits. I know there are lots of holiday parties and events around this time of year so I wanted to put together an easy look that you can wear for many occasions. I wore something very similar to this for a nice Christmas dinner recently.
Skirt (similar) // Clutch // Heels
Unfortunately I could not find this blouse to link up since I got it last year after Christmas from Zara. Some other fun options for tops to go with this look are here, here, and here. Outfits like this are so much fun because color gets brought into the ensemble with the details. Since both my top and skirt are solid colors, this gave me the ability to have fun with the details. That means a bold lip color (MAC– “Captive”), statement clutch and jewelry! Very rarely will you find me without color in my outfit so if it’s not in the actual outfit you bet you will find it in the details! Adding in pops of color to your outfit can really make a difference in the overall appeal of an outfit. One of the best compliments I have received so far was from a coworker that told me I was her style inspiration because I always added color into my wardrobe and she wanted to start doing the same. I love when I can help someone else dress better, and overall make them feel better about their outward appearance! 🙂

The holidays can be stressful running around and getting everything ready for Christmas so I have rounded up some last minute gift options. Beat the crowds and order your gifts online- there is still time to get them before Christmas! Best part? All of these gifts are under $100, with most of them being under $50. You can bet some of these are on my own personal Christmas list 🙂
