Dress – Free People | Jacket – Topshop | Heels – Forever 21 | Bag – Chanel | Lip – YSL

Happy December 14th loves! Christmas is 11 days away. Holy cow!

We spent last week in California and had the best time splitting our time between LA and San Diego. I think Bryson and I are destine to live in California someday in the future, we just feel at home there. Next week we are headed to Michigan to spend Christmas with my family and I couldn’t be more excited. I THINK we might have a decent amount snow this year and we are pumped as the last two years have let us down on the snow front. We plan to play like little children and make snowmen and snow forts. Eeek!

On another note, this dress. Can we take a moment of silence for how gorgeous this dress is. I was instantly sold when I saw it at the Free People store and knew it would be perfect for holiday parties or even NYE (under $110). A good friend of mine told me she bought this dress after seeing it on me and wore it to her company Christmas party and got so many compliments. I love hearing that! I paired my look with this faux fur jacket I got last year from Topshop (similar styles below) to make this look functional in the colder weather. As the dress and jacket are pretty busy I wanted to keep the rest of my look pretty minimal with my smaller black Chanel clutch and nude heels. I think this look would also be super cute with some furry heels.

If you decide to get this gorgeous dress for an event you have coming up be sure to tag me or send me a photo so I can see how you styled this beauty. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Saturday loves!

I’m currently lounging on the couch, sipping coffee and watching The Grinch. How is it already December 3rd? I mean I’m not complaining since this is my favorite time of year but this year has flown by. Our December is jammed packed with two trips (headed to our favorite vacation spot next week) and lots of Christmas actives. We are excited to be spending Christmas with my family and we are hoping for snow!

Speaking of snow and cold weather, let’s talk jackets. Jackets have always been one of my favorite cold weather accessories (aside from beanies – I love wearing beanies in the snow). This jacket was sent to me from Skyesociety and I have been wearing it any time it has been colder here in Austin. I love a good statement jacket as you can keep the rest of your look pretty simple and let your jacket do the talking. I have quite a few statement jackets from longer wool jackets to faux fur and I always bring them out in rotation for these cooler temperatures.
