Goodbye 2011!

31 December 2011

For the final post of 2011 on this blog I thought it was fitting to pick a favorite outfit from each month of the year. It really has been one roller coaster ride of a year and over-all not a dull moment was had! Like any year there were of course ups and downs, but I wouldn't take back a single moment. I graduated from college, had my dream internship as a stylist at Urban Outfitters, lived on the east coast, made beautiful new friends in the city, grew even more attached to this blog, started up my vintage shop online, found great buys and lived in three different states! Throughout all my experiences I have learned so much and am ready to translate this into the new year to come. I think that 2012 is going to be a good one, and I am so ready for it's arrival!

I also wanted to thank you all so much for continuing to read this blog and all of your amazing support! 2011 was a big year for this blog and it couldn't have happened without you all. So a thanks to each and every one of you that has followed this blog this year. Can't wait for another year.

So Happy New Years Eve to you all.
I ♥ you.

Oh boy, I can't believe this is my last outfit post of 2011. Not even wearing a sweater...
that's December in Texas for you. Freezing one day and warm the next! Anyways, I
spent this lovely day with my lovely friend Laura, just hanging out and catching up.
Got our coffee on and went for a little walk. I swear anything I do with this girl is always
a good time, she's the best! Anyways, about the outfit... I am totally obsessed with this
necklace right now! I have been really into wearing short necklaces peaking out under
a collars, especially peter pan collars! As much as I try to not over populate my wardrobe
with them, it is just impossible. So I might as well give in and be the girl with all
the fancy collars.

Well I hope you all enjoy these last days of 2011!

Just Give Me A Comfy Sweater

27 December 2011

After all of the holiday madness, all I wanted to do the day after Christmas was put
on a cozy comfy sweater. I love the crazy texture of this one and of course the
blush pink color. It's difficult to tell in these photos but I paired it with this black
velvet top... I am really obsessed with anything velvet right now. Anyways
I wore this simple look for a relaxing lunch with some good friends and followed
by a quick trip to the mall where we shortly realized that the day after Christmas
is just as, if not more, insane as the weeks leading up the holiday. Seriously I
really really hate shopping in crowds!

Well I hope you all are having a lovely week so far.

It's Almost Christmas

23 December 2011

I have been searching for the perfect leather shorts for what has seemed like ages now!
These ones by Mink Pink totally fit the bill and have been a major staple in my wardrobe
lately. I love that they are tailored and not to shiny looking. And of course anything
high-waisted is a plus for me. I love pairing them with super femme pieces to add a
bit of edge. Especially with a frilly top like this! Anyways it is two days until Christmas
and I am still not finished with my shopping! It honestly hasn't hit me yet that it
is so soon. Gotta listen to more Christmas music while I can.

Well I hope you all have a lovely day and enjoy this holiday season!

Leopard Love

21 December 2011

Hello! I am back from my mini-blog hiatus. It seriously wasn't even that long but to me
it felt like forever. Anyways, my quick Philly trip was absolutely amazing and jam-packed
which is just the way I like it. I swear I am the most antsy person sometimes so getting
out of Texas even for a short bit was great. So on to the outfit- introducing one of my
favorite winter coats! I am in love with the camel color and of course the collar had me
sold. The fur leopard reminds me of old Hollywood in someway and I feel quite
fancy when I put it on, even when it is just with a simple outfit. I paired it here with
these burgundy tights for a little pop of color.

Well I hope you all are having a lovely week so far! The holidays are almost here. Enjoy
every moment of it.
