December Favorites 2017

"Art is a line around your thoughts."  ~ Gustav Klimt 

Hey hey sweetie pies! How crazy is that December is almost over - let alone 2017? December has been a month of going outside my comfort zone as well as growing in every way possible! I have a few things that I have had in heavy rotation this month and I figured that I would share in today's post! I will also be doing a yearly favorites that will be coming a little later. For the products that I have been loving this month, keep reading!

Fresh Balsam Candle (Currently 50% off!)
I have been into any and everything Christmas-y and this candle is just that! Smelling like fresh pine with a hint of eucalyptus - this candle is perfect for the holidays! My boyfriend David picked out this candle and I am so glad that he did. I have been obsessed! I have it in my living room so it is one of the first things that my guests notice!

2018 Happy Planner (Currently 50% off!)
I got this planner last month as I needed to start for the new year asap. #PlannerAddictProbs I love the modern simple layout of this one. It definitely has a minimalist style so keep that in mind. Since I do my weekly and monthly layouts, I wanted a planner with a simpler design. Feel free to check out this month's monthly and weekly layouts here. I am so excited to start using it for the new year!

Faux fur coat 
This coat is an oldie but definitely a goodie! So soft and glamorous, it is the perfect compliment to any of my outfits - especially this winter season. Faux fur coats are no longer just for special occasions, throw one on top of a graphic tee and jeans and you have a one of a kind look! I will be showcasing different ways to wear faux fur in my upcoming winter lookbook so stay tuned! Since my jacket is no longer available, I linked affordable similar options below.



Leopard Scarf
When I tell you that I wear this scarf so much it should be against the law? Omg this scarf is my go to! Whether paired with a chunky knit sweater and a mini skirt or thrown on for rehearsal - this scarf is worn 2-3 times a week! I got this scarf ages ago at Charming Charlie but I will link similar options below!



When my Nana gifted me this palette, I knew it was worth trying out! (My nana works in cosmetics) I have been using this palette all month and I love it! The powder is "buildable" so that you can receive the look that you want. I love the formula plus it is great since the color powder comes in three colors. This palette also includes a holding wax, eyeshadow, an applicator, a pair of tweezers and eyebrow brush. It is definitely worth the price point.

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.




To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
