 You can never go wrong with a lace shift dress and classic black and white colors. When London Times sent me this Blocked Lace Shift dress I couldn't help but instantly fall in love. With the classic colors and shape the styling options are endless and make this the perfect holiday dress. ......

Holiday style

 I was beyond excited when J. Reneé Shoes asked me to participate in their style challenge. The put together a handful of fabulous ladies to select our favorite pair of J. Reneé Shoes and then they asked us to style them together with a holiday party outfit. Seeing how I don't own a pair of leopard print shoes I instantly gravitated towards these Salsa heels. I love the fun vibe of these leopard print Salsa heels with the bow detail on the back and knew I wanted to keep them the star of the outfit. I paired them with classic simple pieces topped with a pop of sparkle from the necklace........

 I know I just wore this Amanda Uprichard dress from Piperlime on the blog the other day (Graphic Print Weekend) but I've been trying to get the most out of this dress by wearing it different ways. I wore this look to the office the other day and with the lightness of the dress I was comfortable all day long. When buying pieces for your closet try to invest in something that you can see yourself wearing more than 5 times and more than 5 different ways. I always ask myself this before I head to the checkout. It helps me only buy pieces I truly love, need, and will wear for years to come.

Blue Christmas Eve

The other day I posted about my possible choices to wear on Christmas Eve. Well I chose this blue Donna Morgan dress because it was very simple, classic, and somewhat conservative which was perfect for church. I made it a little sexier with the back seam stockings Spanx sent me. I am so in love with these stockings that I'm thinking I might need to wear them for New Years Eve as well. I thought that I probably should wear red but I loved the color of this blue so much.

Tea time

I have been crushing over pleated skirts like this for well over a year but could never find one that I absolutely loved till now. I stumbled upon this skirt bright and bold midi pleated skirt on ASOS and instantly snagged it. The softness and heavier weight of this skirt make it the perfect skirt to wear into fall and winter. I also find it fun to mix really girly things with rougher pieces. I think it gives an outfit an edge that is surprising but yet fun......

New Pumps

 My first pair of Prada shoes and I couldn't be more in love! The studding, the scrumptious! I know Christmas is the season to give and I did...I gave to myself! Christmas is only 2 days away and let me tell ya something I've lived by ever since I was a kid. I think every person deserves a little something during the holiday season after dealing with all the crowds of people while shopping! That is why every Christmas I splurge on a little something for myself. I think we should all do this! It doesn't have to be an expensive pair of Prada shoes- it could be a cd we've been wanting or a piece of to die for cheesecake! Just something fun to put a smile back on our faces :) So get out there- shop and make sure to get a little something for yourself as well!.........

Mini dress

 Don't you just love these tights and suede ankle booties? I swore I would never give into the ankle boots craze but then I saw these, tried them on, and caved in. The are so comfortable and versatile. I wore an outfit similar to this to work the other day and just felt so cheeky-especially with these lace fishnets on. Of course the skirt I was wearing was a little longer than these shorts. I'm so loving these shoes but there is a slight problem-the right foot is a little to small......
