I am NOT down with skipping over Thanksgiving and going straight to Christmas but I can’t lie, I am thinking about my gift giving already. I am at the stage in my life that I want to give practical gifts that will actually be loved and used. Classic styles are definitely the way to go. Thanks to Abercrombie & Fitch for sponsoring this cozy look!
If I were to receive this plaid coat from someone as a gift this holiday season I would be thrilled! This long wool blend coat will be in your closet forever! It is classic so it will forever be in style. It can easily be dressed up for more formal occasions as well as dressed down for a casual day of brunch and errands.
This floral embroidered tee is unbelievably soft and so dang cute! Just like the coat, it can easily be up styled for a fancier look if you need it to. It is totally a next level gray tee.
You generally can’t go into the world with out pants so why not wear the best jeans your butt ever felt?!?! These high rise distress denim jeans are amazing on so many different body types and they fit like a dream. I am happy to say that they are kid proofed. You can bend over, pick up , run with, and carry your kids around with out the fear of a “crack attack.” They stay in place and keep their shape all day.
I understand that you may get these pieces for someone else and end up keeping them for yourself. They really are that great so I included a special pine scented candle that will always remind you and your loved ones of the special holiday times. That will be easier to gift but get two just in case you need to keep that as well Lol Enjoy!
Thank you Koh Gen Do for inviting me out to join behind-the-scenes for Fashion X HOUSTON. I was busy with work and life so I was unable to see the 1st and 2nd night of fashion but the final night of Fashion X HOUSTON did not disappoint. It was filled with talented designers that poured their hearts and souls into every single garment that came down the runway. I had to skip out right at the intermission so not all of the designers that presented are shown in this post.
What I enjoyed the most is being amongst so many smiling faces both familiar and new. Everyone looked beautiful and the positive energy matched the prints, stunning colors, and unique designs that hit the runway. Enjoy!
What says girl power more than a graphic tee that tells you that “the future is female!?”
The answer to that is NOTHING! I’m so smitten over this casual look that is ultra feminine that shows so much strength. It is not bright and colorful but the text on the tee definitely catches your attention. The lace on the skirt screams “girly girl” while the sneakers tell you that “she’s ready to take on the world!” (Or just some brunch and shopping (-:)
As for accessories, I wanted to go with sparkly stones in my earrings to add to the feminine side of this look. The purse and lip color is the pop of color in this outfit. (I had to put the color in somewhere) Let me know what you think of this look!
We all know skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple for men and women alike. If we’re going to have them in heavy rotation in our closets, shouldn’t they be the best? By the best I mean the perfect wash, uber comfortable AND holds their shape ALL DAY! Ann Taylor gave us some major upgrades in their skinny fit and it is beyond amazing.
We have all started our morning in the perfect pair of skinnies only to find by noon that we have baggy knee syndrome. With maximum stretch and recovery your skinnies from Ann Taylor will look fresh all day long.
For this Ann Taylor look I wanted a fun brunch look. Skinny denim is a no brainer but my double V knit top is the icing on the cake. It’s an amazing pop of orange color and the sliver of pink on the hem and sleeves is just so sweet.
I’m always looking for ways to add in textures, prints, and patterns and I was able to do that with my accessories. Ann Taylor’s floral statement earrings have so much dimension and texture. They help take my classic look to another level. To take this look up another notch, I added in a leopard fold over clutch. Lastly, a pair of multi colored striped wedge shoes sealed the deal.
When ever you feel like taking your classic look to new heights be sure that you have on your best Ann Taylor denim and spice it up with unique accessories. Enjoy!
This is a flash blog post!! (Meaning that I wrote it past midnight and I have work in the morning!)
I just got back from my vacation and I couldn’t hold on to this a amazing deal any longer! I found this AMAZING orange halter top two piece swimsuit with amazing details on Amazon for $8! You read that right, I said $8 y’all!!!
I always browse Amazon for good deals but when I stumbled upon this one I couldn’t believe it. I was fumbling over the keyboard of my computer trying to order it as fast as I could. The swim material is great and the construction is sound. I wasn’t worried about loosing my top as I had fun and that’s a big deal. When you have a full chest like I do, that is on the top of your list of concerns. Lol
