Favorites of 2013

With it being the last day of 2013, I figured now would be the perfect time to share some of my favorite looks of the year. When I started blogging back in April, I had no idea what to expect and I must say that I still have a lot to learn. I have also been overwhelmed by how sweet all of you are and am so thankful for those of you who have been following along on my journey here and on Instagram. I appreciate you all so much and could not have made it this far without you! I am looking forward to seeing what the new year holds and of course am always open to suggestions for things you would like to see on the blog. Wishing you all a safe and Happy New Year!

Dressing Up Denim

We recently hosted a little Christmas party in our home and I struggled with what to wear since I didn't want to be over-dressed, but also didn't want to be too casual. Don't you hate that?! I finally decided on this jeweled sweater paired with denim and my leopard heels for a snappy casual sort of look. I also wore my new Purple Peridot earrings which happened to match this sweater perfectly!

Friday Finds: Hostess Gifts

With the upcoming New Year's Eve celebrations, I thought I would share a few hostess gift ideas. These are sure to impress without breaking the bank! I am especially loving this cheese marker set and this fun cocktail decanter which both happen to be under $11. And how adorable is this menu chalkboard? Even though the holiday festivities are coming to an end there will still be plenty of upcoming parties to consider in the new year!

Christmas Eve

I can't believe tomorrow is Christmas, already! We will be spending tomorrow with my in-laws and the day after with my family. I always look forward to spending time with family and remembering what this season is really all about. Since another cool front blew in, I decided to wear lots of layers along with my trusty hat. This is one of the few hats that I can actually wear without looking ridiculous, and the bow on it is an added bonus. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve with your loved ones!

Leopard and Stripes

Happy Monday! I am so excited to have the next two weeks off to spend with my hubby and pups. And my parents are already here since later today we will be heading over to the hospital for the arrival of my new niece! So, needless to say we will be spending Christmas here this year which is the first time in my life that I haven't been at my parents house for Christmas...feels kinda strange. Anyway, I hope you've got all of your shopping done and are able to relax and enjoy the holiday week!

Well this is it, the last weekend to shop before Christmas! If you are still in need of a few last minute gifts be sure to check out my gift guides for Gifts Under $25, Gifts $25-50, Gifts $50-75, and Stocking Stuffers. Since this is my last gift guide, I decided to put together a few items that I wouldn't mind Santa Baby bringing! I am especially loving these softer tones since they will work well this spring too and this fabulous bag is sure to be a favorite. I have also been eying these bow pumps ever since I missed out on them last year so they are currently at the top of my Christmas wishlist. What items are on your wishlist for this Christmas?

Plaid and Jewels

Today, I finally decided to break out this jeweled sweatshirt that has been hanging in my closet for weeks and pair it with my cozy flannel shirt. I am not sure how I could've forgotten about this sweatshirt, but I am glad it is getting some use now! And don't you just love the simplicity of jeweled sweaters and how plaid adds a little touch of holiday to your looks?!

Monogrammed

In case you have already noticed, yes I am wearing yet another cable knit sweater today. I originally went to Target in search of the green version, but ended up bringing three colors home with me instead! For this look, I decided to layer my sweater with polka dots and this red puffer vest that I scored on major sale. I am also wearing a monogrammed necklace from oNecklace that looks great worn solo or layered with other necklaces. If you are looking for an affordable monogrammed or initial necklace for yourself or for a gift, be sure to check out oNecklace

Doubled up on Layers

We ended up having a four-day weekend last weekend due to an ice storm that blew in. Although, it would have been nice if our "snow day" actually involved any snow, instead all we had was ice. So needless to say, I spent the weekend bundled up in lots of layers. For this look, I decided to double up on layers by not only layering my clothing, but also my necklaces! I am not sure why I have waited so long to start wearing this pearl necklace, but I am loving how it looks layered. How did you spend your weekend?
