One of my favorite things about the holidays is all the fun parties! I love getting dressed up, especially if my look involves extra sparkle! There’s not a whole lot of rhyme or reason in picking the perfect look – I tend to go for darker colors or red and accessorize with flashy shoes, bags, and jewelry. So easy and festive! I put together a few looks for you to get inspired by and have more options to shop below. Don’t forget to complete the look with a sparkling glass of champagne – cheers!
Target’s Wondershop is fully stocked, Hallmark is rolling out their sappy Christmas romance movies, and Starbucks has moved on from Pumpkin Spice to Peppermint lattes. It only means one thing, the holidays are officially upon us!

If you’re anything like me, Christmas is what you live for all year long. The 11 months leading up to December are simply prep months for the most joyous month of them all! Christmas is not a holiday, it’s life. I start planning my Christmas cookies in August, the music starts September 1st, and decorations are up as soon as soon as the Halloween candy is on sale. Don’t get me wrong, I obviously completely understand the reason we celebrate (here’s looking at you, baby Jesus), but the lights, songs, flavors, and family make it that much more special to celebrate the peace that came to Earth.
Growing up in the Midwest, my friends and I always looked forward to Spring and Summer because of the cold and miserable Winters. Now that I’ve lived in the South for about ten years, I find myself looking forward to Fall and Winter because of the miserably hot Summers! My how things change! With the temps finally dropping and becoming more comfortable, I thought I’d start a series on some of my favorite Fall must haves to carry you in to the Holidays. First up, over the knee (OTK) boots!
One of my favorite ways to accessorize any outfit is with a great pair of shades! It’s the easiest way to give your look a fun pop or stylish edge. I’ve been in love with Diff Eyewear for awhile now and finally got my own pair! They’re constantly updating their styles with each season and are known for the best collabs with celebrities and influencers like Jessie James Decker. To top it off, the quality is like a high end designer pair of frames at a fraction of the price!
Just because it’s Fall doesn’t mean you have to abandon the beautiful floral prints in your closet! Instead of going for pastels, look for prints that have a dark background or deep jewel tones throughout. This dress is a great option and has the cutest vintage silhouette.Read More
Despite Hurricane Irma rolling through earlier this week, the weather in Atlanta has been nothing short of amazing! It feels like Fall is here! There’s nothing better than throwing on some boots, a scarf, and a jacket and heading out into the cool brisk air! This year, I’m excited to add a new Fall staple to my wardrobe rotation: colored denim!Read More
Anyone else love to accessorize? On any given day I wear the normal jeans and a tee, but sometimes I get so bored wearing the same thing all the time. Accessories allow me to dress up a look, add a little something more, or simply make me feel more put together.Read More
Fall is right around the corner, which means pumpkin spice lattes, boots, football, and Fall weddings! If you know anything about me, you know I LOVE a good wedding – the emotional ceremony, the beautiful blooms scattered everywhere, the gown, and of course the dancing! Fun fact: once upon a time, I worked in the industry as a designer so it’s always been near and dear to my heart. Read More
Labor Day is almost here and that means Summer is quickly coming to end. Whether you’re rejoicing and anxiously waiting for cooler temps or crying inside at the thought of having to put on a jacket, let’s all soak up the last bit of this season! Read More
I recently had such a great trip down to Miami for Swim Week! This top by Ruby Ya Ya screams South Beach! I have really fallen in love with this brand since I started working for a showroom at AmericasMart in the heart of Atlanta. The colors, textures, and breezy styles drew people from all over the world (literally!) over to where we were showing. Read More
