A Look at 2012

Wednesday, December 26, 2012


Sweatshirt: Inspired By {DIY from Molly Stillman} | Blouse: The Limited | Pants: Loft {my new favorite pant} | Bootie: Kenneth Cole | Glasses: Cole Haan | Earrings: Kate Spade {not online, but love these} | Gloves: Old Navy {last year, similar here}

I was given this brilliant idea by Molly to make this sweatshirt myself! I am not a huge DIYer, but this was easy and I love the result! Unfortunately I chose a fleece lined sweatshirt, so I have been unable to wear it in the warm NC weather. Now that I am home visiting in Minnesota, bring on the fleece!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday with their families! Anyone hitting the mall to spend some giftcards today?

Creative Cash Gift

Need a last minute creative gift for your family? My mom was "pinteresting" and found a great way to give her nieces and nephews a cash gift!

Determine how much money you are gifting and get that amount in $1 bills. Roll each bill and tie with ribbon.

Attach the below poem to the sack of money and you are done!

Much Needed Quote

This is the best quote to have on repeat in your head as we head into the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season. I know this year I am so very thankful for my loved ones and I want to take a moment to relax and cherish what life has had in store for me. Seek out relaxation and peace of mind and take it!

Blazer: F21 | Skirts: ASOS {only left in petite, similar in solid fabric} | Tank: j.crew | Tights: Hue | Shoes: F21 {on sale!} | Necklace: Gifted, Baublebar | Glasses: Cole Haan

Again with the oxblood. Are you sick of it yet? I'm not. 

My favorite item to gift this Holiday season is monogrammed pieces of jewelry. The picture above doesn't do the Baublebar necklace any justice, but it has a 'M' engraved. My new favorite necklace.

Afternoon Fur

Blouse: The Limited {no longer online, similar here} | Pants: The Limited | Fur: The Limited | Bracelets: J.Crew, Michael Kors | Necklace: Baublebar | Glasses: Cole Haan | Shoes: Steve Madden {old, but love the updated, edgy version!}

I've been running from Holiday Party to Ornament Exchange parties all weekend. It's my favorite time of the year, yet finding a look that is versatile can sometimes be hard! I love adding some faux fur to any day time look to give it a glamorous look and feel, without rolling out a night-time look!
