LOVE YOU, WEEKEND

How did this happen? We are only ten days away from Christmas and less than a week away from spending the holidays in Scottsdale with my family.  Our holiday schedule is packed full of birthdays and holiday parties, but I am looking forward to some down time with the fam and watching all the Christmas movies. I’m not going to lie, my tv has been on an endless loop of the Hallmark channel the last few weeks.

BEST OF CYBER MONDAY

Grab your coffee, your computer, sit back and get comfortable because this year’s Cyber sales are not to be missed. As of this weekend, I am in full-on holiday mode and I have a good jump start on my holiday gifting thanks to this past weekend’s sales! Today, I plan to knock out the rest of my list and maybe find a few things for myself.  I have been eyeing these shoes and this bag. It’s all about balance, right? One for me, one for you!  Read more

LATELY

LATELY-11-17

Do you ever wish you had a couple hundred elves helping you get through during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season?

This time of the year always seems to creep up faster and I am always feeling like I have to play catch up the week before Thanksgiving.  I have been furiously working on a special Gift Guide this year that I cannot wait to share. It was planned for today but I had a minor set back when my computer froze and I lost the entire document has put me a little behind-don’t you just hate when that happens…note to self: save, save, save.

This weekend I got into the Holiday spirit with a little Christmas card photoshoot for one of my newlywed besties, a stop into the Christmas pop-up shops at some of my favorite stores, and had drinks and laughs with a few friends by the fire at Savor.  You can feel that Holiday spirit all over town and it makes me so giddy.

The busy weekend definitely has me craving multiple cups of coffee and a warm blanket to work under today.

PARTY DRESS

The holidays are quickly approaching and my calendar is starting to fill up with loads of holiday parties and events.  Finding the perfect dress that can be worn for a work party and a friend-gathering can be a tricky task. Every year I try to find one item that can be worn a few ways to create a completely different look.  This year, thanks to #mybestsummerever shopping spree, I scooped up this ALC Dress at the beginning of September with the thought in mind I would wear it this winter for holiday parties with tights, my favorite boots or with a fun pair of heels and a red lip. It has quickly become a go-to dress in my closet for every occasion from date night to work meetings.

My heart is so full this Christmas and I have so much to be thankful for; two days ago I got engaged. We have been calling friends and family to spread the news! I will be sure to share a little more of the story after the holidays are over, because today is meant to be spent with family and loved ones!

To spread the Christmas cheer today, presents are coming your way! Alina, Dawn, and Brittany are the winners of the Sesame “Celebrate” Gift Set!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

STYLE DETAILS: HOLIDAY PARTY

styledetails-holidayparty

One of the best parts of the Holiday  is having an excuse to dress up. But  the catch 22 for me is figuring out what to wear. Before our friends annual Christmas party without fail my room looks like a tornado just hit. This year in order to eliminate the stress, and the fact that we will be packing a suitcase for 3 vacations, I really have to plan my outfits in advance. This means no changing my mind at the last second and only bringing one option for each event we will be going to. Did I mention we will be going on THREE different vacations? I know we may be a little crazy but we will have a guaranteed good time!

We will be attending a few parties in Arizona right before Christmas, so this jumpsuit will be the perfect piece to bring with me. I am planning on changing up the accessories and I might throw on a chunky knit to dress it down, and I will probably be wearing it again for NYE (but that is way too far away to think about right now!). What is your favorite go-to piece during the Holidays (are you a dress girl, or do you love a good sequin skirt)?

LOVE YOU, FRIDAY

Another week on the books, and let me tell ya folks I really never thought it was going to end.  With the Holidays approaching at a rapid pace, these weeks leading up to all of the fun are seriously dragging. I have so many fun things planned for this blog as well as lots of traveling this holiday season that I cannot wait to share! So this weekends plan involves getting ahead of all of my work because next week starts my official kick- off to the Holidays! 

If you are in the shopping mood, there are tons of great sales happening. I found this amazing GAP coat for 40% off and J.Crew is having a crazy good sale- an extra 40% off sale items.  This statement necklace is perfect for a basic black sweater. If you are looking for a party dress, Anthro is having an extra 20% off. Seriously obsessing over this green number, this LBD and really wanting this figure flattering mini.  Happy Weekend loves!
