So I don't know about everywhere else, but here in Georgia the weather is WAYYY too warm for Christmas to be in 3 days! I actually ran outside in shorts today! What the heck is going on?! The outfit today was influenced by the unseasonally warm weather - I decided to pull out some pretty flowers, a tank, and no tights! I attempted tights, but I was seriously too hot! Oh and if you noticed the gross hair - its due to the lovely rain and NO straightener! Boo! I HATE my naturally curly hair? Anyone with me?! - I am a bit of a control freak and curly hair has a mind of it's own, which I absolutely HATE not being able to control!

On a more smiley note.... :)
What would an outfit be without atleast one goofy pic?

I have an INSANELY busy next week coming up with the holidays and all so I will try and post as much as possible! But if I'm not back before Christmas I hope everyone has a blessed weekend and Christmas with family and friends!!

I feel like it has been wayy too long since my last post! The holidays have kept me unbelievably busy! I cannot believe Xmas is on Sunday!! I felt like I was so ready and ahead of the game, but now I am slightly freaking out about finding/ getting presents I ordered in time! Anyone with me?

As you can see - the holidays put me in a merry mood, which can cause me to bust a couple moves (which I clearly don't have! haha) I wore this outfit to church and errands with the bf! Oh and of course we went and saw a movie - Mission Impossible 4 - AHHHHMAZING!! We saw it in IMAX - totally recommend! It is one of the best action films I have seen in a long time, don't worry- it is way better than last few MI's. Also, I went and saw New Year's Eve with my madre.  It is the movie that has every star under the sun in it... It was okay - def rentable. 

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and is having a very merry week!:)

Until tomorrow-

This weekend consisted of lots of holiday fun! I had to work, hence the first outfit,  and then had date night with the bf (2nd outfit)! We also went and saw Arthur Christmas and went looking at Christmas lights (which was a massive disappointment seeing as only ONE house out of FIVE neighborhoods actually decorated more than a whimpy strand of lights!) Where is everyones holiday spirit?! On a better note - we listened to Christmas music the whole time which always makes the experience a good one!

 Arthur Christmas was a cute movie - we also went and saw The Sitter - not my cup of tea! Very vulgar, only some funny parts.... As you will soon find out we are quite the movie goers!! So any movies we see I will def give my opinion and I would love to hear if you saw any good or bad movies! 

Also, you may notice a handsome little black puppy - that is my baby Asher! He is the other man in my life (besides my boyfriend, of course!)

All in all I had an amazing weekend with my 2 favorite guys and spending time with the fam! I just love this time of year! Hope everyone else had an equally fab weekend! :)

P.s. LOFT is having a sale  Online only today - 50% off EVERYTHING except new items!!! lots of amazing stuff!! Check it out here !!!

Sequin skirt love

Crushing In:

Turtleneck Sweater - Express (old)
Sequin Skirt - Francesca's Collections ($48)
Tights - Francesca's Collections (Only $12 and super comfy and warm!!)
Booties - MIA via Francesca's Collections ($58)
Bow  Ring - Francesca's Collections ($12)
3 Color Dangle Earrings - Francesca's Collections ($12!!)
Watch - Fossil (gifted)
Bangles - Forever 21 (old)
Pearls - Vintage (my Gma's passed down to me)

I am OBSSESSED over sequins! Anything with sequins is automatically cuter to me! So when I saw this skirt I knew it had to be mine! I wore the sweater out to dress it down a little bc I wore this to work, but I cannot wait to dress it up! Most of this outfit is new items in the closet... I know I know! I am supposed to be shopping for everyone else, but I can't help it if everywhere has sales and they just happen to have my size! :) Also,I have formed quite the crush on bows as well... I saw this ring and it was instant love! I have seen a ton of more expensive versions lately (i.e. Kate Spade and Tiffany & Co.), and I love me some Kate Spade but my little $12 ring suites me just fine!

P.S. Francesca's Collections is having an amazing sale right now! All  the apparel and jewelry is BOGO 50% off! The website doesn't do it justice the skirt,booties, tights, and jewelry are all currently in stores but not on their website! So if you live near one I totally recommend checking it out!

Side note: Tomorrow is Friday YAYYY!! The bf is coming to  visit this weekend -so excited! Couples night and xmas light sightseeing planned! Can't wait! Pictures to come! :)

Currently Crushing On: J.Crew

So while making my wishlist I realized the EXTREME crush I have on all things J.Crew! I got thier catalog and no joke pretty much circled everything and in multiple colors! I love the colors, sequins, bows, leopard print, sophistcation, chicness, and comfy touch that is a part of everything! So, to cure my J.Crew shopping cure I compiled a collage of all things J.Crew I would but right NOW if I had unlimted funds. Seeing as that is not the case, I will just have to be normal and slowly aquire all these fabulous pieces!

Which brand or what pieces are you currently crushing on?

Until tomorrow-

This sweater season I found I have quite the shortage so I decided to get a little creative! I turned my cardigans around and  basically doubled my sweater collection instantly- viola! (hint: I wouldn't use cardigans with pockets - doesn't look cute!)
What do you think? Would you ever wear your cardi backwards?

So due to my lacking sweater collection, naturally I put a few on my Christmas wishlist! Here are some of my faves! :)
J. Crew Honeycomb Sweater - $79.50 (select styles $54.99 - score!)

Hope you have blessed rest of your weekend!

Jumping Polka Dots

Crushing In:
Polka dot Shirt - Francesca's Collections ($34)
Cords - Rue21 ($22)
Boots - Pesaro via Rack Room Shoes ($55)
Watch- Fossil ($115)
Purse - Francesca's Collections ($54)
Sunglasses - RayBan (vintage)

 These pics were taken before I headed to work - I work retail and 6-8 hour days standing (on concrete floors - even better!) kills my feet! I love me some heels, but I just haven't found any that I'm not absolutely dying in by the end of the day.  So, needless to say, boots have become my new bestfriend! Does anyone know any heels that are super comfy? I really want to be able to wear heels at work, I just feel like a cute pair of shoes can make a cute outfit even cuter! :)

P.S. You will soon discover I LOVE "jumpy" pics! The cute little doggie that snuck into some of the pics is Sadie, my lovely little mutt!

P.S.S. Clearly I'm a total blogging newbie! Does anyone know how to make my header go all the way across, this half of a page thing is killing me!

Goodnight and Sweetdreams!
