Oversized Sweater Dress

Sweater Dress | Scarf | Bag | Boots | Similar hat here

You might have seen my insta-stories when we were trying to take these pics, and I was changing shoes in a corner on the Brooklyn Bridge. The struggle is real, y'all! I decided in the middle of the day that we should go shoot some photos on the Brooklyn Bridge, and there were a MILLION people walking across it once we got there. However, I love how these photos turned out, because they truly show what NYC is like this time of year... basically just people everywhere. There is nothing like it though, and the energy this city gives off during the holidays is like nothing else!

On another note, I absolutely adore this dress and the oversized fit. I do want to point out that there is some distressing within the dress, but it does happen to fall in all the right places. I was worried I wouldn't love the distressing but once I tried it on I was pleased with where the rips fell on the dress! With the scarf though, this look completely comes together. I love how one simple piece can totally tie a look together and make a simple statement at the same time. I've linked a few other similar scarves below that are equally as cute that would pair perfectly with this look, too. I hope you have a great rest of your week and safe travels to any of you that are traveling for the holidays! I am so grateful for each and every single one of you for following along! Much love to you and your families this Christmas! XO

Bright White Faux Fur

Handbag | Beanie | Booties (these are so cute, too!)

We had the best time in NYC this past weekend and this look is one of my favorites that I wore over the weekend! I ended up adding my huge puffer coat over it all, but let's just pretend I wore it just like this while I was there! Let's be real though, the wind takes everything to another level in New York. This faux fur jacket is a steal, and it would be perfect paired over any of your sparkly outfits for New Year's Eve. Also, this chenille beanie feels amazing and kept my head and ears so warm (and it's on sale for around $10!) the entire weekend! Wishing you all a great rest of your week! I am scurrying to get all of my last minute Christmas shopping done before we head down South on Friday! I am so excited to head home! XO

Black & White Gingham Statement Sleeves

Top: Red Dress Boutique (c/o) | Denim | Bag
Booties (identical pair here with more sizes available!)

When I saw this dressed-up sweatshirt online, I knew it would be such a versatile piece to add to my closet. The black and white gingham print is so fun, and I adore how it ties at the wrist. We are headed to NYC this weekend, and I will definitely be packing this with me. It is seriously SO comfortable. I topped off the look with my favorite new white booties since they paired so well with the gingham print, and I love how it all turned out!

This week has flown by! Anyone else feel the same?! I honestly can't believe we head home at the end of next week for the holidays! I am so excited to see my family and spend some time down South. However, this weekend we are headed to NYC first for a quick getaway! It is my absolute favorite city in the world and especially this time of year! We usually try to go each year during Christmas time (the best part of living in DC is being a quick train ride away from NYC), but we haven't been able to make it happen the last two years so we knew this year it was a must! Be sure to follow along on Instagram and my insta-stories! Hope you have a great weekend! XO

Buffalo Plaid

Handbag | Hat | Sunglasses (sold out but love these!)

Happy Monday! Holiday craziness has been in full swing, but I'm not gonna lie I'm loving it! One of my really good friends from high school was in town this past weekend, and it was so good for the soul to see her and her husband! On top of that, my bestie's dad has been in town and has been so kind to treat us to dinner over the last few nights! It has been a fun December so far, and this week is packed even more with holiday parties! Also, I got a few messages about some of my favorite DC restaurants (and I will say I am no foodie at all), but we do go out to eat A LOT (proof on my insta-stories this past week). So, if that is something any of you would be interested in, please comment below or on my Instagram and let me know! There is nothing I love more than wining and dining that's for sure!

Onto this outfit, you have heard me talk about Red Dress Boutique before, as it is hands down one of my favorite places to find cute and affordable clothes! Plaid is everywhere this season, and when I saw the bold print of this buffalo style plaid top I knew it was the perfect piece for the holidays! Are you needing a longer top to pair with leggings for your holiday festivities? If so, I would recommend this style. I paired this top over my pleather leggings (currently on sale for under $20!) that I wear nonstop this time of year. They are a steal and seriously SO comfortable! You won't regret purchasing them! Lastly, I thought my OTK boots paired perfectly over these leggings and dressed up the look a bit. I hope you have a great start to your week, and as always thanks for stopping by! XO

Cropped Denim

Sweater | Denim | Leopard pumps are old but SUPER identical here
Bag is sold out but love this one! | Sunglasses are sold out but just got these!

Cropped denim is truly a tall girl's dream! Pair it with a sky high pump and you are set for one comfortable yet dressed up look! I picked up this adorable chenille sweater from Target a few weeks ago, and Y'ALL (!!) it is seriously my favorite sweater ever! The softness is incredible, and it also comes in the most adorable mauve color. I completed my look with my beloved leopard pumps that I have had for years, and they are still going strong! I linked an almost identical pair that are just as cute and affordable! Below I have included a few other pairs of cropped jeans that would be perfect for the upcoming months and even headed into Spring. I can't wait to style these with some booties soon! I hope y'all are having a great week so far. As always, thanks for stopping by! XO

Trend To Try: White Booties

Booties (love this pair too!) | Hat | Handbag

I have been searching for the perfect pair of white booties basically since September. I saw them all over New York Fashion Week, and I knew I had to have a pair. However, I couldn't seem to make up my mind if they were worth the splurge. You know... those trends that come and go and the next season you look at that item in your closet and say "well that was another $100 down the drain." Am I the only one?! I know I can't be. Case and point here - I just wasn't ready to drop very much on a white pair of booties quite yet so I kept searching. Well, a few weeks ago I was wandering through Forever 21, which I have to say I have to be in the right mood to do. You know what I mean? It can be SO overwhelming. However, right as I was walking out of the store and passing by the shoe section, these glimmering white booties caught my eye! And, they were exactly what I'd been looking for with a pointy toe, a comfortable heel height, and to top it off they were under $30. If you are on the fence about trying this trend and splurging on a pair of white booties, then I highly recommend these. Most of all, you won't regret it next season if this trend isn't here to stay (even though I hope it is!). Wishing you a great start to the new week! XO

Off The Shoulder Sweater Dress

Dress | Boots | Bag | Hat

The cut of this sweater dress is just so flattering! A little off-the-shoulder combined with a bit of a body-con fit and we have one sweater dress, friends, that is set to make a statement. It's currently on sale (with just a few sizes left), and I've linked some similar sweater dresses that I'm loving below! I paired this outfit with this little red bag to have a bit of a color pop against the grey and black, and I love how it turned out.

Did any of you catch the VS Fashion Show Tuesday night? It is one of my favorite events of the year. I just love all that goes into it, and the entertainment is always incredible! Alessandra Ambrosio has been one of my favorites for years! I hope each of you are having a great week! XO

Dress (only $15!!) | Bag 
Booties (on MAJOR sale for $62!!)

We made it home!! While I meant to have a huge Cyber Monday round-up on the blog today, we landed back in DC around 8:00am yesterday, picked up Brady (missed him SO much!!), then came home and began unpacking and doing LOADS of laundry. A few hours later, the jet lag began to set in, and I literally fell asleep around 3:00pm yesterday afternoon. I woke up last night around 9:00pm then went straight back to bed. However, I am up super early this Monday morning, so I decided to go ahead and share these pictures from one of my favorite areas in all of Cape Town, Bo-Kaap.

The area is lined with cafes, colorful homes, and cobble stoned streets. And, the sweetest people that dwell in these homes that want you to take as many pictures as you wish. It warmed my heart to see how welcoming and inviting the people were in this city. It made me appreciate their culture so much, and it truly gave me a new perspective on so many things. The lady standing on the steps in one of the pictures above is the owner of this adorable home I'm taking pictures in front of and she was so kind! I wore this adorable dress that's currently on sale for only $15 and is SO comfortable (and available in 3 other colors) to explore Cape Town on this day. I topped it off with my favorite fedora and my favorite booties that are of course on MAJOR sale right now. I can't recommend them enough... they are so comfortable, have the cutest zipper detailing, and the quality is amazing! Wishing you all a great start to the new week! I am excited to be back after the trip of a lifetime, and I can't wait to share some more photos with you! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! XO
