Velvet Shorties

You guys… I am SO on board with the velvet trend! I got these shorts thinking they’d be the perfect fall staple in Florida! I was right about that, until three days ago when it went from 75 and sunny (like it’s been for the whole entire season) to 45 and windy/cloudy/rainy! Brr. I get cold just thinking about it… FL has ruined my cold tolerance. But I wore them yesterday anyway because they’re SO freaking COMFY. I’m a HUGE fan of clothes that feel like pj’s but make you look put together 🙂

I got these shorts at my favorite 30A boutique, Indigo Watercolor! (Also where I work now and I’ve never been happier! If you’re in the 30A area, come see me!) Like I said in my other post, their website isn’t up yet BUT you can find their Instagram HERE! Check us out!

The sweater is from Riffraff a few seasons back, but they have tons of new ones that are just as cozy! And the blanket scarf obsession continues — ILYMIX is where it’s at y’all! Now that it’s cold here, I’ve pretty much been planning my outfits around my ILYMIX scarves haha. They’re so cozy, and they make great Christmas gifts!

Anyone else feel like you’re suddenly running out of time to get all the gifts you need?! I think I have a mini heart attack every other day because I keep thinking of more gifts I need to get! Someone please come do my shopping?! No? Anyways, on a more serious note… I almost didn’t post this post (actually almost deleted the whole thing after I wrote it) because I got on Instagram and scrolled through other people’s feed and felt totally inferior. I let other people’s highlight reel affect my real life. “My photos aren’t as good.” “My legs aren’t as skinny.” “My roots are grown out a little but her hair is so perfect.” Blah blah BLAH! You’re probably familiar with this nonsense. So, if you’re like me and you sometimes let Instagram get in your head, here’s your reminder that it’s simply a filtered highlight reel, not the messy, REAL every day life that people live. So cut yourself some slack, and if you want to post that picture, post it with confidence! Let’s use Instagram as a way to build community not competition, and compliment each other’s strengths rather than focusing on our own weaknesses! 

I hope you guys have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

Ombre Top + OTK Boots

Happy Monday! Better yet, happy CYBER Monday! Anyone else trying to frantically get some Christmas shopping done and out of the way today?! I feel like it totally snuck up on me this year, and even though we still have almost a month, I’m stressing out that we’re only halfway done with our Christmas shopping! So, in case you’re like me and want to knock it out sooner than later, I’ll link my favorite cyber Monday sales I’ll be hitting up today! My after work plans include a glass of wine, my laptop and wallet, and curling up on the couch (hopefully with a Christmas movie playing, but I think I’ve burnt the husband out on Christmas things already). This is totally unrelated to this post, but I had to throw some in there… how cute is my hubby? Ladies, find you a man who is patient with you during photo shoots with your new camera :).

A few of my Cyber Monday must’s:

Of course, we all know Amazon is the epitome of Cyber sales, so if in doubt go there!

For all things home decor/kitchen/etc.:

Wayfair allllways has amazing prices, but today they’re doing up to 80% off so many things!
Overstock is doing all kinds of deals and door busters today!

For adorable, boutique clothes/jewelry/etc.:

Riffraff is doing big deals from 30%-50% off sitewide, based on how much you spend! Check them out, they’ve got an outfit for everything. (And they ship for free!)
Red Dress Boutique has TONS of deals today! From jewelry to shoes to clothes, things as low as $10! So cute!
Anthropologie is running 20% off the whole site today! And ummm have you smelled their volcano candles?! Heaven. Go get some for your favorite people!
Forever21 is doing 21% off their whole site today!

NOW let’s talk about this outfit! First of all, Florida has been WARM this fall/winter! It’s only my second full winter here, but I’m kind of amazed at how warm it’s been. Which I secretly love because I hate being cold, but it makes it a little tricky planning outfits. We all know the struggle of freezing in the morning but sweating by noon, so I’ve figured out the key to looking fall-ish but feeling cool/comfy. It’ll probably be my winter uniform until FL cools off (if it ever does)… A lightweight top, skinnies/leggings, and over the knee boots. So simple, yet so put-together looking. You have the boots that make you look like Fall, but you keep it breezy with the top so you’re not too hot by the time it warms up. This lightweight top from Indigo is perfect for that awkward fall weather and can be layered if you need it! *Their website isn’t up yet, BUT you can peep their Instagram HERE!* I love that the bell sleeves trend is staying around, and the ombre colors give you lots of options for putting different colors with it! I wore it alone for our Christmas card photos, but threw on a blanket scarf after to add a little more of a winter vibe to it (I was cold for like five minutes).

The blanket scarf is from ILYMIX and is SO warm! It truly is like wearing a blanket, but you don’t look crazy you just look cute haha. I always tell my husband I need to start carrying around a blanket in my purse because I am ALWAYS freezing to death when we go out to eat! My problems are solved – these scarves are the best.

I hope YOU have a great Monday full of strong coffee and lots of cyber sales! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi loves! I hope your Wednesday is off to a great start! Yesterday was an interesting day so I’m hoping today is much better. I’ve decided to take the positive approach and make the best out of new days/beginnings. My plan isn’t always what’s best, and I’m learning that more each day!

Today’s look is super comfy, which is perfect for this rainy day! (hence the curls struggling to hold in my hair). Not only is it comfy but it’s so fun and if you watch New Girl you already see why! Oh my GOSH you guys I am a huuuge New Girl fan. I’ve been obsessed since college. If I wasn’t studying, I was probably watching New Girl or anxiously waiting for them to put the next season on Netflix (while watching reruns with my roomie *who got me hooked in the first place thank you Haley* in the meantime). Fast forward to when hubby and I moved in together, and I got him hooked too. So basically instead of going on dates we would watch New Girl over and over, and be so content with it!

When we lived in CO, we gathered some friends one night to play the famous drinking game they play on the show, True Americans. So. Much. Fun.

“It’s like 75% drinking game, 25% life size candy land. And the floor is molten lava.”

You get the point. Go play it. But not right now because it’s 9 in the morning.

When I saw that Riffraff was about to release these t-shirts, I freaked out and preordered one ASAP. It’s from my favorite brand of tees, Friday + Saturday, and it’s the softest shirt you’ll ever wear. And get this- they made one with Friends and Laguna Beach too! My head’s gonna explode. I want them all. But I had to start with this one.

I went with OTK boots and my favorite coat to make it a little more cozy/wintery, but can’t wait to wear it with cutoffs in the summer too.

Now that you know how lame I truly am, I’ll leave it at that. I hope you have a fabulous day! Thanks for reading.

Happy Monday! I hope you’re having the best Monday ever. I haven’t had coffee all day and I’m wondering how I’m still alive right now.

Anyways, I’m excited to share this outfit with you guys because it’s one of my favorites for fall! The weather is finally getting cooler here in FL, but it’s mainly cool in the mornings and evenings. Which means it’s hard to find the appropriate outfit to wear when going out. That’s why I was so excited when I got this cute suede skirt because it’s very fall-ish yet not too warm for the Florida sunshine!

I went with a simple, white crop top for this one because it was pretty warm out. But if you’re wanting a little more warmth, throw a chunky knit sweater over the crop and you’re good to go. I am currently on the hunt for a chunky knit for this season, just for outfits like this one. They’re more versatile than you think! And of course, boots. Because it’s not fall without boots. Am I right? I’m SO thankful my hubby got me these boots a couple of years ago because over the knee boots are THE SHIZ right now! And they don’t have a heel, which is even better for me and my weak feet!

I got the skirt for less than $15 (yes, you read that right!) at forever21. The crop is from ShopRiffraff (& I’m pretty sure they recently re-stocked it!!). Like I said, the boots are from a couple seasons ago, but I am linking very similar ones for you at the bottom!

I was sitting in the tire shop this afternoon (for way too long *eye roll*) and the news was on. Oh my gosh it made me SO sad hearing about all the hate people are displaying in our country right now. So here’s my tiny ray of sunshine for your day: God is the One who ultimately runs this place, and He has huge plans for all of us! So let’s please love on one another regardless of who we voted for, because like the song says, “Red yellow black and white, we’re all precious in His sight!” Let’s pray for more love and less hate.

Hope you babes have the best start to your week, and thanks for reading!
