{last minute christmas shopping}

Photography by Laura

Normally I have all of my Christmas shopping completed by Cyber Monday... I've made my lists before I go home for Thanksgiving, have budgeted everything out, gotten shipping addresses, and then everything is wrapped during the first two weeks of December. To say that didn't happen this year would be quite an understatement. I didn't wrap anything until I got home yesterday and I still have things to buy for friends and family. Oh, and those Christmas cards? They're going to become New Year's cards... Life just got in the way :)

So today, I'm going to go out with my little sister and knock everything out before Christmas Eve! I'll be running around in this easy combo - my J.Crew vest is always a go to because I hate lugging a heavy coat around through the stores.

Any other last minute shoppers out there?!

Love Always,

{splash of holiday red}

One of my favorite holiday looks is simply adding red earrings. It's the perfect splash of color to add to any neutral outfit... and we all know how easy an all black outfit is to pull together. I've had these "scuba leggings" from Express for a couple of years now and they never fail to make me feel a little va-va-voom if you will ;) They aren't super shiny like faux leather leggings but they still have a bit of sheen to them. I think they make your legs look leaner. The best part about this outfit is that it could easily work once the holidays are over too. If you want to make it feel more festive I'd add these plaid heels! So gorgeous with that sparkle on the toe. Change up your red lip and add a fur stole for a classic glam look. Happy Holidays!

Love Always,

{maroon dress}

What girl doesn't love a swing dress? Paired with a hat, boots, the cutest purse, some fun jewelry (maybe a pair of tights if it's too cold) and you've got an easy look for any occasion. With weekends being filled with errands, holiday parties, shopping, and catching up with friends it's nice to have a comfortable dress in my closet.

Love Always,
