This year I decided to keep my New Years Eve outfit whimsical and fun. I picked up this adorable  dress from Anthropologie the other day and knew it would be just perfect for NYE party plans. It basically went something like this in my mind "Gold Panthere dress for New Years? Duh. Done." I will be ringing in the New Year with some of my closest friends at one of Dallas's chicest venues The Stoneleigh. I hope you all have a very happy and safe NYE! And as always, thank y'all so much for reading along :)

PS. Tune in later this week to see how I restyle this dress for everyday wear! #allaboutoptions

Merry Christmas!

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Merry Christmas Everyone! The past couple months have been pretty difficult, so this Christmas I am just grateful to be able to spend time with my wonderful family. As some of you know, my younger brother Taylor was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma this past October. My brother is my best friend and partner in crime, so over the past couple of months this blog has had to take a back seat to his health. It has been a very scary and trying time for all of us. Chemo is no joke and watching Taylor go through this has not been easy. Despite the toll that it has taken on his body, the Chemo treatments are working and Taylor is on his way to recovery. I never stop being impressed with his strength and bravery throughout this entire process. I know that God is watching over us and He has already used this experience to make our family closer than ever. 

As you can see by our mustaches and matching pajamas, our tradition of keeping the holidays casual and silly is alive and well. Take that Cancer :)

It is such a weight off to finally be able to share this with everyone. Taylor's treatment should be completed within the next month, and I will be sure to keep y'all updated on how he is doing. I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday and don't forget to tune in later this week for some great New Years Eve style inspiration.

Checked Skirt + Striped Shirt

ASOS full skater skirt in brushed plaid check (25% off with code GETGIFTS) | TARGET striped t shirt dress (similar) | FOREVER 21 baseball jacket (similarFOREVER 21 studded sneakers (last seen here) | STILA stay all day liquid lipstick in fiery

I think the key to any good wardrobe is a having pieces that you can easily mix, match, and repurpose. One of the most versatile items in my closet is this striped t shirt dress from Target. It has proved to be a great basic that can easily be worn as it was intended or styled as shirt like in today's post. What pieces have been heavy in y'alls rotation this fall?

SPARKLE & FADE epic and shit sweater (sold out - similar here) | c/o WALLIS faux leather jacket | CLUB MONACO fur vest (last seen here & here)| J.CREW pixie pants | JIMMY CHOO leather motorcycle boots (last seen here) | SHOPBOP black fur snood | TARGET felt hat (similar)

For the past several weeks, I have been dying to try out the trend of wearing a fur vest over a leather jacket...the Texas weather has NOT been cooperating. But just when I was about to give up, a huge ice storm hit Dallas, and I was finally able to layer on all of my favorite winter gear. This Club Monaco fur vest is a favorite from last year and combined with my new Wallis leather jacket, I was kept perfectly cozy despite the freezing temps.

There is nothing better than a great LBD with embellishments--especially like this one from Asos.com (ps. the entire site is 30% off through midnight). I love how the chain and jewel detailing give this simple dress an extra oomph of glamour. Combine this dress with my trusty over the knee boots and I am ready for a night out on the town.


PS. yes...somehow only my thumbnail is painted red #needamanicure

Hi all, I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving weekend! I finally felt well enough to leave the house, and was able to attend the Cowboys game on Thanksgiving day which was an absolute blast. The rest of my weekend consisted of stuffing my face with leftovers, Pretty Little Liars reruns, and just continuing to recuperate. I am so glad to get back to posting this week, and thank you all again for all of your sweet words!

It is safe to say that I am more than a little obsessed with Buffalo Check. The latest addition to my collection is this adorable peacoat from J.Crew, and I have been wearing it non-stop since it arrived on my doorstep. So far my favorite thing to pair it with is a really great red lip :)
