Mix It Up

Dec 15, 2014

 This weekend has been full of holiday party after holiday party! I love this time of year, especially in Nashville, because everyone is around and wanting to spend time with each other. I don't know about you. but most of the holiday parties that I get invited to are dressy. I've never been someone that feels very comfortable in dresses but I LOVE dressing up. I usually try to mix fancy elements into outfits I would normally wear. This is a good example. The mixing of leather leggings with flat shoes and a sequin jacket make me feel more like myself, but a little more spiced up :).

Big Sur is for Lovers

Dec 11, 2014

For my birthday this year I went to Northern California to visit some friends in San Fransisco and FELL IN LOVE. My friend Katie is an amazing hair magician and makeup artist and had a wedding to do in Big Sur one of the days that I was there. I had ALWAYS wanted to go to Big Sur and immediately jumped at the opportunity to join with our friend Marisa as well. Within a few hours we were driving along the coast of one of the the most beautiful sceneries I have ever witnessed. I remember sitting in the passenger seat with tears in my eyes and my jaw to the floor. None of us talked over my "ooooo's" and "ahhhhs." We watched the sunset on a deck that stretched out above the water while drinking an amazing cocktail and eating artichokes and finished with one of the best meals I've ever had. That night we stayed in a cabin and talked about basically everything. It was one of the most magical moments. The next day while Katie was at work, Marisa and I went hiking in the Redwoods spent hours at Pfeiffer Beach in the purple sands. Ever since then, Big Sur has always held such a special place in my heart.

The Perfect White Button Up

Dec 8, 2014

I am always on the hunt for the perfect white button up and I think I found it! This is from Free People (naturally) and I am obsessed. I love the slight differences in the white accents with the black buttons. It hangs heavy at the hem, so it always drapes your body in all the right places. I love pairing it under jackets because the small ruffle at the bottom usually accents the length if its hip to waist
