The Perfect Holiday Dress













Red Dress- H&M (similar),
Belt- Target (similar), 
Black Bow Shoes- TJ Maxx (similar),
Pearls- DownEast Basics (similar)

I am one of those people who play Christmas music in the middle of August and then continue until whenever I feel like it. I know, I know some of you are probably shaking your heads right now. I hate being limited to a certain time of year where I can feel happy and play music that uplifts and inspires me. This red dress screams Christmas to me, but I don't want to feel limited in the seasons I can wear this beauty. I think this dress is the perfect Thanksgiving dinner dress, Christmas party, New Years, or just a great go out to dinner or church dress. Then bring it out again for Valentine's Day! Yay! So versatile!

With the Fringe








Dress- Thrifted (similar)
Booties- Ralph Lauren (similar)

I had the perfect weekend. It started out with celebrating my anniversary. My husband and I have been married for now 4 years! It seems weird to only think we have been married for that short of time. We have known each other for about 7 years now! That's crazy. Celebrating the anniversary was blissful. We then got to spend time with my mother in law who is in town from Paris. It was so nice to see her. I also got to see my sister and her baby Scarlett who just got into town. I can't get enough baby kisses. She is 6 months now and I can't believe how fast time has flown. I love family so much. 

I fell in love with this duster at the Pinner's Conference here in Utah a couple weeks ago and I had to get it. I also got the hat at the Pinner's Conference. I had no idea that some of these shops I have browsed online would be there and have such good deals. Score!

Herringbone Color

I love this J.Crew Herringbone vest.
Mixing it with color just seemed right, in

Bring some color into your life.

Deer Peter Pan Plaid



My weekend was wasted by being sick.
I woke up Friday sick and then I had it all weekend long,
not a fun way to spend the weekend.

Peter pan collared shirts and dresses are my absolute favorite.
I am always on the hunt for a new peter pan collared 
item to add to my wardrobe. 
It is such a vintage and chic look that I feel never goes out of style.

Creme de la Creme







 Faux Fur Vest- Target, Lace Shirt- H&M (similar), 
Black Pants- Old Navy,
Shoes- Forever Young Shoes (similar)

I am obsessed with fur.
I know I can't afford a real fur vest or coat, 
so this faux Target version has been the perfect find. 
I am excited to wear it with multiple outfits this winter. 
I love the two cream textures together, lace and faux fur. 
Are you into the fur vest trend?

Christmas cards or engagements, she is perfect! :)
