The Perfect Holiday Pieces

Faux Fur Bomber || Earrings || Top || Faux Leather Skirt || Chain Clutch || Pumps

If you’re like me, you’re already excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Getting geared up for Thanksgiving makes a bit more sense at this point, but I’m one of those people who listens to Christmas music at the first glimpse of snow on our mountains. Some of my friends (you know who you are) call me a Thanksgiving Hater, but I don’t even mind. If I can squeeze even two extra weeks out of this holiday season, I’m on board! I’ve already done my best to incorporate something sparkly, gold or red in every outfit, which inspired today’s wish list look. In looking for holiday party looks, I tend to stick with black as a base and layer accordingly depending on the dress code of the event. Adding a colorful top or chandelier earrings is usually inexpensive, but can add so much! What’s your favorite part of dressing up for the holidays?

Around the Web

Happiest Thursday! I happily present to you my favorites from around the web. If you do nothing else, read the cat article. Please, I’m begging you. Even if you hate cats.
1. David’s self-aware, slightly narcissistic Halloween costume. I can smell the boringness from here.
3. A splendid new coffee table book by the fabulous Lauren Conrad.
4. Feline heroics – who knew there was such a thing?
5. A newly released, unparalleled bag from MK. *Fingers crossed*

A Summer Favorite

Blazer (another fun print here) || BCBG Runway Dress – sold out (similar here & here) || Bag (another cute Modalu)

I’m only slightly obsessed with this dress and blazer. They are both so comfortable and unrestrictive. The asymmetrical layers of the dress offer something unexpected—don’t ya think? I’ve recently found myself wearing the most summer-specific clothing lately. I’m assuming it’s a subconscious, desperate plea for summer to stick around a little while longer! I’ve been loving the warm evenings, spontaneous trips and taking Bella on long walks. I hope your summer has been wonderful. Have a stellar Tuesday!

Navy & Pearls

Bag: Modalu

Welcome back from the holiday! I hope you had a delightful day filled with family, fireworks and fun. Our day was incredibly relaxing even though it felt like we were melting most of the day. It has been so hot in Utah this week! We began the day with a family breakfast, followed by a mid-afternoon viewing of Independence Day (you can’t go wrong with Jeff Goldblum) and stellar BBQ. The rest of the night we attempted to distract Miss B from all the bangs and pops. This day means so much and I’m extremely grateful I was able to enjoy the day with my family.
This laid back dress was the perfect choice for the day. Completely effortless, but adaptable with some heels. It was also the perfect day for the inaugural use of my anniversary present! As always, Modalu has created a convenient, stylish bag. There are several colors on sale right now by the way! Isn’t that great news? Check out the Modalu site!
