Plaid + Leather Boots Repair





Old Navy Plaid Shirt, Cardigan-American Eagle (similar Boohoo Boyfriend Cardigan), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Bag-Forever Tiff Couture (similar Forever 21 Quilted Crossbody), Boots-Nordstrom (similar Steve Madden Intyce Boots)

These leather riding boots are my absolute favorite. However, they were looking pretty beat up after a few years. The leather was cracking and the rich cognac color was fading. I thought I might have to give in a get a new, replacement pair. Instead, I took them to my local shoe cobbler to see if they could be repaired. I can't believe it, but they look almost like new! They conditioned the leather, restoring the color and re-soled them. Not bad for $28!

Utility Jacket + Polka Dots




Jacket-Old Navy (similar Forever 21 Utility Jacket), Top (actually a dress)-Target (similar Forever 21 Polka Dot Top), Necklace-Groopdealz (original Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Flats-Kensie Girl (similar Wanted Cap Toe Flats)

I decided to bust out these bright colors thanks to the springlike temperatures we've been having. It's a nice departure from my mostly dark winter wardrobe. Some people were wearing tee shirts and shorts, but I didn't think it was that warm. But I'm soaking up as much Vitamin D as I can before winter finally sets in!

Striped Tee + Leopard




Merona Striped Tee, Necklace-Aliexpress (similar BaubleBar Courtney Bib Necklace), H&M Pants, Stevie's Leopard Flats, Bag-Botkier

This weekend was so warm, almost 70 degrees! Saturday night we went to a Christmas lights show (check on my Instagram for a video of it) and it was definitely a little strange thinking about the holidays with the weather like this. 

I'm finally getting around to sharing this outfit that I wore on Thanksgiving. I paired a black and white striped tee with olive pants and leopard flats. I've previously worn this striped tee with a tweed vest.

Grey Plaid Blanket Scarf








Tee-Gap (similar Forever 21 Striped Tee), Scarf-Forever 21 (similar Vince Camuto Plaid Scarf) , Pants-H&M, Boots-Naturalizer (similar Charlotte Russe Flat Boots), Bag-Botkier

My obsession with blanket scarves continues. When I saw this grey one, I had to have it, especially since it seemed like a rare find. Well, at least rare enough that it's not yet being mass produced for sale on eBay! It was only $12.90 from Forever 21.

Holiday Makeup Looks

The end of the year brings many reasons to celebrate, which often translates to many different parties to attend. In addition to discovering the perfect outfit for each event, it’s also important to know the right hairstyle and type of makeup to use. What you wear to an office party might differ from a family get-together or a celebratory night out with friends. When should you wear your hair up, and when is the best time to just let the locks flow? Should you favor darker eye shadow or go with natural shades? An elegant up-do with highlighting and brightening makeup is great for office parties, while more dramatic shades are ideal for New Year’s Eve soirees. When you’re with the family, natural makeup with a flattering but casual hairstyle is a great way to accentuate your natural beauty. However, makeup styles are completely personal, so go with what makes you feel beautiful and confident. This infographic shows you easy tips and tricks, from lipstick color to eyelash formation, to suit every party this season.

Navy Sweater + Plaid Scarf








Sweater-JCrew Factory (similar JCrew Factory Sawyer Sweater), Scarf-Forever 21 (similar Red Plaid Infinity Scarf), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Bag-Forever Tiff Couture (similar Forever 21 Quilted Crossbody), Kids Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers

Last night was the first night of Hanukkah. I celebrated by making yummy potato latkes and lit the menorah. It is hard to believe that we are already in the holiday season, especially since the weather has been so warm here.

Today I'm remixing this JCrew Factory navy sweater by pairing it with a plaid scarf. I previously wore the navy sweater with olive pants and leopard flats.

Cable Knit Sweater + Faux Fur




JCrew Factory Cable Knit Sweater, Scarf-Asos (similar Merona Faux Fur Scarf for $15), Bag-Forever Tiff Couture (similar Forever 21 Quilted Crossbody), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Booties-Target Girls (similar Nicole Stack Taupe Booties)

I stalked this JCrew Factory cable knit sweater, waiting for it to go on sale. It was originally $88.00 and I scored it for $27.99! It is now currently $39.99, which is still a great deal. Or you can just wait it out since I'm sure there's more holiday sales to come!
