Blending In

Blouse: Everlane c/o {my favorite staple blouse} | Leggings: Nordstrom {on major sale and every size still available!} | Handbag: ZAC Zac Posen c/o | Shoes: Dee Keller c/o {similar} | Hat: Rag & Bone | Watch: MK | Rings: Baublebar c/o + Brandy Pham c/o | Lips: YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture' #31

Let me be the first to share this with you - RUN, don't walk to purchase these leather leggings!  Okay, no really, just click on this link and it's just that easy, but you will not regret it!!  For some reason, I've been all about comfortable clothes lately and these leggings are so, so perfect.  Easy to dress up, wear with an oversized tee or lounge around in.  I wanted them when they were full price, but once I noticed they were on sale a couple of weeks ago, I immediately ordered.  Usually once something goes on sale at Nordstrom, it doesn't last long so #getitgirl!  Anyways, I love a classic black + white outfit.  So easy to throw on and go, but also fun to add a little pop of color or print to.  These shoes are so chic!  The perfect amount of leopard and I love the calf hair for an extra touch of luxury.  

I'm so excited about NYE tonight and can't wait to celebrate!!  Not to mention, I'm even more excited to be off work tomorrow for new years day.  It's only Wednesday and this week has already been SO crazy, busy!  It's officially 1:32 in the morning and my alarm is going off at approximately 5AM, so I'm signing off for the night morning!  Whatever your plans are tonight - throw on your sequins, enjoy your time with family + friends, be SO safe and cheers to 2015, lovelies! xx.

Thanks so much for stopping by, x.

NYE Outfit

Shirt: J.Crew Factory | Sweater: Banana Republic | Pants: Piperlime {sold out, but on sale + super similar + here} | Shoes: Jimmy Choo {obsessed! similar} | Bow: ASOS | Clutch: Clare Viver | Sunglasses: Prada | Watch: MK | Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o {x2} + Brandy Pham c/o | Rings: Baublebar c/o + Brandy Pham c/o | Lips: YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture' #31

Like I mentioned in last Tuesdays post, as soon as Christmas is over, I immediately start planning my NYE outfit.  I'm one of those girls that believes sequins can be worn to almost any occasion, however, they are a necessity on NYE.  I usually go for the super loud, all-over gold sequins, but I decided to switch things up a little bit this year.  Typically, we go out with friends to dinner to a fancy restaurant downtown, but this year, we're staying in at my (gorgeous) friend Amy's house for a super-chic house party.  I wanted an outfit that was a little more subdued, but still encompassed my idea of NYE necessities: sequins, a big bow and a great pair of pumps.  These sequin track pants are SO comfortable!!  I hate that the exact pair from Piperlime is sold out, but I found two (almost exact) pairs from Nordstrom that I linked below.  This outfit is perfect for keeping that NYE look, yet staying comfortable for a fun night with friends!

I hope you all had a lovely holiday!  It was so nice to just relax and enjoy time with family + friends the last few days.  I always look at the holidays as a time of reflection and I can remember certain moments + events in my life while growing up that I wouldn't change for anything in the world.  You realize that it's those little moments, both as a child and an adult, that have made you who you are today.  I'm only 25 years old, but life has already taught me so much in that short amount of time.  The good, the bad and the ugly, all have one thing in common and add up to one big moment- you.  So, without going on and on, that's one of my new years resolutions.  Simply cherishing the moment. More on that later this week! 

P.S. - If you're looking for a fun NYE idea to ring in the new year, this is something we did last year: Blow up 10 balloons and fill them each with a cup of gold glitter.  Hang them upside down from the ceiling in a row and right before midnight, while counting down from 10 to 1, each person pops a balloon while standing under them!  Don't get me wrong, this is definitely messy, but who doesn't love going home with glitter in your hair at the end of the night?! Remember my "we found gold glitter in our bed for months after last years NYE" comment ... yeah, that was because of this. But hey, those 10 seconds are the most anticipated part of the night, so why not have a little fun with it!  

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Winter Lace

 Sweater: Urban Outfitters | Pants: J.Crew {on sale w/ an extra 40% off!} | Shoes: Valentino | Handbag: Kate Spade {old, similar + here} | Hat: Club Monaco {on sale + additional 30% off, also craving this one} | Watch: Michele c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Rings: Baublebar c/o + Brandy Pham c/o | Lips: Stila 'Beso'

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!  We had the best time spending the day surrounded by family + friends and ate WAY too much.  Seven stops in one day.  Can you believe that?!  Needless to say, it was a crazy day, but totally worth it to be able to enjoy our families.  I hope you all had safe travels and savored every bit of the holiday!

I know, I know, another neutral, white outfit.  I just can't get enough of the creamy colors for winter and I'm obsessed with this hat so I pair it with anything and everything I can.  {P.S. It's on major sale + an additional 30% off!!} Not to mention, I always look for any excuse to break out my Valentinos and Christmas just seemed like the perfect time.  I love how well the blush pink pairs with winter white and I'll never tire of a rock stud.  A little pop of red to finish off the look and you're good to go!

P.S. My favorite gold monogram mug is on sale today with an extra 25% off with code INAFLURRY!

Christmas Eve

 Sweater: Old Navy {also love this for winter} | Pants: J.Crew {extra 40% off with code WINTERTIME} | Boots: Hunter | Earrings: J.Crew | Watch: MK | Lips: Stila 'Beso'

Sometimes, a simple Christmas Sweater + rain boots are just necessary.  We've had a lot of rain on and off the last few days, so I'm currently living in cozy sweaters and Hunters.  Hopefully it will clear up before tomorrow, the rain makes it feel so much colder outside.  I'm so excited for tonight- family traditions, festive PJ's, making hot coca & old Christmas movies playing in the background.  I hope you all have a magical Christmas Eve- cheers, lovelies!

#NYE

Happy New Year!

Outfit #1: Feather Top {also here} | Gold Skirt {on sale!} | Champagne Glass | Stud Earrings | Beaded Clutch | Glitter Pumps
Outfit #2: Sequin Crop Top {also here | Sequin Skirt {also here} | Stud Earrings | Champagne Glass | Beaded Clutch | Bow Slingbacks

New Years Eve is one of my favorite nights of the year!  Dressing up in metallic sequins, popping a little champagne, and waking up the next morning with gold glitter in your hair (that actually happened to us last year, we found glitter in our bed for months!!) all make for a perfect night.  Once I finish with my Christmas shopping each year, the next thing on my list is always finding the perfect NYE outfit.  Since I'm obsessing over crop tops + high waisted skirts at the moment, these two outfits are beyond perfect.  I LOVE the ivory feathers in the left outfit and the fitted, little sequin number to the right.  Also, these beaded clutches are to die!  I just ordered this one for myself and can't wait to carry it.  If you're still looking for something to wear to ring in the new year, order this week to be sure it arrives in time.  Cheers, lovelies!

Oversized Cardi + Plaid Pencil

Top: J.Crew | Cardigan: Windsor Store c/o | Skirt: Windsor Store c/o {also love this one} | Shoes: BCBG {old, similar} | Necklace: Stella & Dot c/o | Bag: Cuyana c/o {similar} | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Lips: Stila 'Beso'

Happy Christmas week, lovelies!  I am so, so excited for everything about the next few days- a little more shopping in all the holiday crowds, family get togethers, late night wrapping + hot cocoa and then finally...Christmas Eve!!  Definitely one of my favorite nights of the year and it leads right into such a fun, festive day!

I love this layered look for two reasons: 1. it's warm and 2. plaid + oversized.  After last weekends 70 degree weather, this weekend was totally different.  It is absolutely freezing here!  As most of you know, I'm obsessed with anything plaid, so the navy and red in this skirt were right up my alley.  Oversized cardigans are becoming my go-to lately, too.  They're so easy to wrap up in and throw on over almost anything.  Functional, yet chic!
