Farewell

First off, thank you so very much to each and every one of you who have supported me during my blogging adventure over the last year and a half. Your kind words and encouragement have meant so very much to me. However, I am afraid the time has come to say farewell to blogging. Many of you who have been following along for a while are aware that I took a break from blogging back in June and then returned in September. And while I have enjoyed being back, I have also realized that the reasons why I decided to take a break in the first place were still lingering. I will continue to share my looks over on Instagram if you wish to follow along, and you can still shop my looks here too! Thank you again for your support. I wish you all many blessings in the New Year!

Merry Christmas



Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:11

Red and Leopard

Sweater: J.Crew Factory | Denim: Loft | Clutch: c/o Mimic Design | Heels: c/o Sorellas Elite Fashion | Necklace: c/o Luxe Statements | Watch: Kate Spade | Bracelet: Loren Hope | Earrings: J.Crew Factory (option) | Ring: David Yurman | Lips: British Red
 
Last week I decided to jazz up an ordinary turtleneck for date night by adding a fun pop of red along with some leopard. And this Luxe Statements necklace was the perfect finishing touch. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve with your loved ones and safe travels!

Emerald and Navy

Sweater: Target (option) | Vest: Old Navy | Denim: c/o Dittos | Boots: Tory Burch (this year's version) | Bag: Tory Burch | Necklace: c/o Purple Peridot (use code PC10 for 10% off) | Watch: Kate Spade | Bracelets: c/o Purple Peridot | Earrings: J.Crew Factory (option) | Ring: David Yurman | Lips: British Red

So, I ended up opening up one of my Christmas gifts a little early and couldn't be more pleased with this navy bag! I'm not sure why I didn't think to get it sooner since it goes with so much of my wardrobe. I also think it will end up being a great year-round bag since I tend to wear quite a bit of navy in the summertime too!

Plaid and Stripes

Shirt: JCPenney (option) | Vest: J.Crew (option) | Denim: c/o Dittos | Boots: Hunter | Boot Clips: c/o Poppy Clips | Bag: Tory Burch | Necklace: c/o Clovers & Pearls | Watch: Kate Spade | Bracelet: Loren Hope | Earrings: J.Crew Factory (option) | Ring: David Yurman | Lips: British Red

I am beyond excited that the hubs and I are both on vacation all week! It will be so nice to sleep in a little since I usually get up for work at 4:30 A.M. and to spend some extra time with our pups. And I wanted to share this look that combines a couple of my fave prints...plaid and stripes. I also have to mention these adorable bow boot clips that are perfect for adding a little flare to any pair of boots! I particularly love them paired with my Hunter boots since they stand out against the red.

Friday Finds: Gifts for the Beauty Queen

Friday Finds: Gifts for the Beauty Queen
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16

With Christmas next week, I decided to round up a few gift ideas for any beauty queen on your list. I am certainly no expert in the makeup department, but I have found a few products that have become a part of my daily routine that I wanted to share with you. First up, I started using a Clarisonic (this one is on sale) a few months ago and absolutely love it! I was hesitant to try it at first, but am so glad I did since it makes my skin feel so nice and clean. Next, this Urban Decay eyeshadow primer is amazing and helps my eyeshadow to stay on ALL day long, no joke! I also use this Urban Decay setting spray to help the rest of my makeup stay put all day too. And of course you can never go wrong with a naked palette in my book!


P.S. Check out the rest of my gift guides here! And good luck with any last minute shopping you have left to do :)

Three-fer Thursday Link Up

Happy Thursday, darlings! Can you believe Christmas is in one week?! With that being said, we will be taking a break from the link up on Christmas day so everyone can enjoy the day with their loved ones. We can't wait to see your holiday looks this week though! So get linked up, meet some new blog buddies and check out these fabulous ladies while you're at it!

Meet this week's featured three...


Lisa of Daily Style Finds created a simple, yet chic look by layering a collared shirt under her mustard sweater (which happens to be one our fave fall/winter colors) and adding a fun pop of leopard.


Nathalie of Earnestyle looks darling her in bright pink dress! We love how she kept her accessories to minimum, but yet added another punch of color. This look would be perfect for a holiday party or New Year's Eve celebration!


Elena Michelle of A New York Love Affair looks perfectly cozy in her layered look. We are loving her sleek moto jacket and hat paired with her blanket scarf. And her bag adds the perfect pop of color too!


Link up for your chance to be one of the featured three next week!

How it works:
Three-fer Thursday is a linkup party where you submit your favorite post from the week and link it up here at Perfectly Coutured and White Coat Wardrobe. The following Thursday, we will choose three of those posts that we particularly enjoyed and then share them with all of you! If you're one of the chosen three, we will email you on Wednesday evening to let you know so you can post about it on your blog (if you want)!

Sweater: Target (option, love this) | Denim: c/o Vigoss | Boots: Hunter | Scarf: c/o Purple Peridot (use code PC10 for 10% off) | Bag: Tory Burch | Bracelet: c/o Purple Peridot | Earrings: J.Crew Factory | Ring: David Yurman

This past weekend I decided to break out my new Purple Peridot scarf. I love that it combines houndstooth with plaid and the fact that it is super cozy too! And yes, I wore my Hunter boots even though it wasn't raining since I can't help but love the pop of color they add!

Fair Isle

Sweater: J.Crew (use code JINGLE for 30% off) | Denim: Vigoss | Vest: J.Crew Factory | Boots: Sole Society | Bag: Tory Burch (on sale) | Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington | Bracelet: Loren Hope | Earrings: J.Crew Factory | Ring: David Yurman | Lips: Manic

Y'all already know how much I love my berry bag and vest. So, of course I couldn't resist this fair isle sweater which is a perfect match for them! I love the bright, cheery colors that pop on this sweater and can't wait to wear it layered with an orange gingham shirt later too.

Ski Sweater

Vest: J.Crew (30% off with code GIVETHIS) | Sweater: J.Crew (this year's version extra 30% off with code JOLLY) | Denim: Vigoss | Boots: Hunter | Bag: Danier (option) | Bracelets: c/o Purple Peridot (use code PC10 for 10% off) | Earrings: J.Crew Factory | Ring: David Yurman | Lips: British Red

Last year, I missed out on this ski sweater and regretted it so I tracked it down on eBay. Then of course it came out at Factory a few weeks later which is lucky for you if you don't have already it. And  you all know about my vest obsession, so there was no way I was passing up this buffalo check puffer! It's such a fun, bright vest which makes it a perfect addition to my collection.
