Layering Basics

Top: J. Crew | Sweater: J. Crew | Jacket: J. Crew | Jeans: 7 FAM | Necklace: Emerald Bling c/o | Boots: Sperry c/o | Hangbag: Hobo c/o | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Stella & Dot c/o | Earrings: Nadri | Lips: YSL #17

Good Morning Loves,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  One of my favorite things to do is layer basic pieces that on their own may be boring, but paired with different textures become exciting.  Especially with the crazy weather we're having in SC- layering is a must!  I love the rich, warm tones {like this bordeaux turtleneck & mossy brown field jacket} mixed with cooler neutrals.  And of course, a little major pop of glam in a statement necklace.

Mad for Plaid

Top: J. Crew {just sold out online, but loving this one} | Scarf: Cuyana c/o | Jeans: 7 FAM | Hangbag: Hobo c/o | Glasses: Warby Parker | Boots: Hunter | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Stella & Dot c/o | Lips: MAC Creme 'de Nude

Good Morning Loves,

I hope you all had a great Pre-Christmas weekend!  I'm so excited for the week ahead--spending time with family and friends, lots of amazing food, laughing while listening to old stories and curling up in front of the fireplace with a little hot cocoa.  All of the wonderful things that make up the holidays and I love every minute of it!  

Today, Amy from Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins and I wanted to show you two different ways to wear plaid.  I'm so in love with anything tartan and the print goes perfectly with all of your holiday attire.  It's such an easy way to dress an outfit up or down.  Also, the hunters were not planned, however, we have had a crazy amount of rain here lately, so I apologize for the lack of outfit posts.  I adore my Hunters, but I must say, I wouldn't mind putting them back in the closet for a few days!  

<head on over to Amy's blog and see how she styled her plaid for the holidays>

Cheers to a magical week ahead, xo.

Hey there loves,

I hope you had a great weekend.  I fell in love with this sweater the moment I laid my eyes on it.  Not only do I have a slight obsession with anything french, but the saying reminds me of the 90's song, C'est La Vie by B*Witched.  Incredibly cheesy looking back on the video, but brings back a few hilarious memories!  Who's with me?!

Advent Calendar

Advent Calander: By Luciana c/o

Since it's already the beginning of November (where did the time go?!), I thought I would share something super fun with you for the month of December!  One of my favorite things as a child was decorating for Christmas and moving a small little Christmas tree figurine from one day to the next on an advent calendar in preparation for December 25th.  Now, a few years later, I still cannot contain my excitement as the month progresses and we get closer and closer to Christmas day.  There's just something about this time of year that puts a smile on everyone's face and I'm ALL about it.  All of that to say, one of my favorite print companies, By Luciana has come out with the absolute perfect Advent Calendar for all of us gold scavengers and french lovers.  When I initially saw this print, I knew I would need one for my office at work + one for home and I immediately became so excited for the upcoming Season!  There's nothing better than counting down the days in a chic way--order your very own Advent Calendar + a few for your favorite friends here!

-Plus, this comes in a gold frame with a free print so you can enjoy it even after the holiday season!
A Joyeux Noel: Merry Christmas to all
