Over-The-Knee Boots

Outfit Details:
Top: B.P. Nordstrom $12 // Leggings: Old Navy {$7.00} // Vest: Old, similar HERE + HERE
Boots: ZARA, similar HERE // Pom pom: Express

Over-the-knee boots are everywhere because they are such a great shoe to own! However, I never intended on paying more than $100 on a pair. I see the super pricey Stuart Weitzman boots that literally cost as much as a plane ticket. I already own a black pair of these types of boots, but I came across this olive green pair in Zara that stood out. They were also $35.99! My shearling vest is from last year, but I found lots of other options below that are similar.

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve celebration! I have a cold so I'm planning on taking it easy this year. I am also sharing my Christmas presents soon!

Coach 75th Anniversary

Outfit Details:
Dress: Forever 21 {similar HERE for $7} 
Shoes: Ashe Couture Boutique {similar HERE}

Merry Christmas! 
I am thrilled to be celebrating the holiday at home with my family. This morning we plan on eating, drinking, and watching movies! Later we will dig into a wonderful homemade Italian meal and open up presents. It doesn't feel quite like December as it is 80 degrees outside, but it's totally fine by me because I can wear some short dresses {like this one here!} and get away without needing a cardigan!

I am also so excited to mention that I am partnering with Coach for today's look. I've loved the Coach brand for years because it happens to be my Mom's favorite brand, too! When they reached out to me to see if I wanted to style their new saddle bag, I did not hesitate one second to respond to this wonderful opportunity. What I love about this bag is the beautiful exposed stitching--it's so elegant and unique. The size of this cross-body bag is just right-- and it's surprisingly roomy inside for all my products and wallet! It comes in so many colors, too, but this wine color is just the best. It pairs wonderfully with my green dress that I found similar ones to HERE and HERE as mine is from a thrift store! 

*Thank you so much Coach for sponsoring this look! All opinions are my own.

Christmas Eve Look

Today is Christmas Eve! I'm so excited for Christmas Day tomorrow, but first I'm going to catch up on all my favorite holiday movies. The Grinch and Eloise At Christmastime are two of my most loved movies for this time of year. I also need to drink some peppermint hot chocolate because it's a tradition. In this look, I'm wearing a comfy cable knit sweater and a scarf that resembles a Burberry print. I also love wearing ripped jeans like these with a big sweater.  Happy holidays and enjoy the weekend friends!

2016 Beauty Favorites

My complete Beauty Favorites of 2016 are in this blog post today. Everything from foundation to mascaras! I tried a bunch of great and not-so-great products this year, and am excited to share with you what I loved and could go without. Let's get started with foundations, one my favorite items to purchase!

fave foundations

1. MAC Pro Longwear Foundation This stuff is soo matte and full coverage which I love to wear. It stays on all day and you don't have to put much on for it to work.
2. Urban Day All Nighter Liquid Foundation I wear the lighest shade 0.5 fair porcelain. I love its full coverage and long-wearing abilities. The shade matches my skin tone perfectly, too!
3. It Cosmetics CC+ Cream  By far my favorite of the favorites is this CC+ cream. Even though it will leave your face looking shiny just matte it down with a powder for a flawless look. It's my go-to everyday foundation when I don't want to overdo my makeup for running errands.
4. Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in1  This drugstore option is the only one I purchase repeatedly at CVS when I run out. I get the lightest shade, Ivory, and it gives me a full-coverage effect without breaking the bank!

fave concealers

1. Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles  I've used this product countless times because it's just that good. It's affordable too, just under $7, and a must-have for your concealer arsenal. It has a sponge that makes it easy to apply. 
2. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Then we have this concealer on the other end of the price spectrum at $29. To me it's worth it because I use it so sparingly! It covers all my blemishes perfectly with every stroke. 
3. Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer I also loveee Urban Decay everything, including this amazing concealer! It has 4.5/5 stars at ULTA because yes, it's fantastic. It blends so well into my skin and never cakes up! 
4. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer This is a very hydrating concealer and it provides full coverage under your eyes! At $26, it's a little pricey, but I do like using it for special events when I want to conceal any dark spots. 

fave eyeshadow

1. Urban Decay Naked Basics This palette is for an everyday look. I use the darker shades on the right side of the palette into the crease of my eye for some depth. I like to use the milky white shade under my eyebrows for an added highlight. It's a great investment palette!
2. Milani Everyday Eyes Okay so this palette I Instagrammed a photo of because I was so happy to find a dupe for the Kyshadow Burgundy palette! Its under $10, too which is some majoy savings in comparison to her $42 price point. I definitely recommend adding a shadow primer to enhance the quality and length of your look. 
3. Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette Hello, my dear old friend! is how I can put how much I love this thing. AT $52 it's not a cheap buy at ALL, but I'm telling you it's also a wonderful investment. The colors last and last throughout all the times you dip your brushes into it. I love the copper and gold pigmented ones the best in this palette. 

fave mascaras

1. Maybelline Lash Sensational Intense Black The curve in the wand of this mascara makes your lashes lift up in a way that makes them appear fuller. This mascara clumps a little, but I don't mind the dramatic effect. It also doesn't flake! Which is so awesome in a drugstore brand mascara. 
2. Smashbox X-Rated I only have a trial-sized version of this mascara, but I seriously love it. It doesn't flake on me and lasts alllll day long in the hot Florida heat! 
3. Too Faced Better Than Sex This. Mascara. Is. Gold. Thanks to bloggers and YouTubers, everyone went out to buy this Too Faced mascara. It does not disappoint. You get a base-to-tip curl that is fantastic and long-wearing. 

faves 2016

1. Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment I had one of these from a birthday reward two years ago and it lasted me forever! It casually melted in my purse, sadly, but I've since purchased more. They last a while if you take care of them and really moisturizer your lips to feel softer immediately.
2.Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer Goodbye pores! No, really, you will not see them until you wash this primer off your face at nighttime. It's an amazing product that covers and glides right over your pores to give your makeup the perfect resting place for all day comfort. I notice a difference when I don't use this product, and it makes my makeup slide off!
3. Hoola Matte Bronzer by Benefit Another classic buy. This bronzer is great for contouring and overall face bronzing. I just need the mini trial size $15 of this product because I don't overdo it with the bronzer on my pale skin!
4. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hr Blushes These will give you such a nice natural finish every time you use them! I love the peachy, coral shades and I wear one every day. The pigments are fantastic but you don't need a lot to see results.
5. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion A holy grail, must-have for any shimmery or even matte eye look. It makes sure your masterpiece stays in place all day long.
6. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume  My favorite scents are notes of floral so it's no surprise that I love this perfume so much! It also has notes of bergamot, tea, jasmine, orchid, rose, and African orange flower. It smells heavenly!

Wishing you the best 2017!

Skirt: Charlotte Russe {similar at Macy's for $15!}
Purse: Kate Spade Crossbody Hanna Floral Fabric {similar and adorable HERE}

This look is as wintery as Florida is getting right now! My tan knit sweater is just the right amount of layering I needed for this outfit. It is on sale for under $15 and is a great basic top.

I also have my Kate Spade crossbody in a floral print as my purse today. 

It's almost Christmastime! I'm playing Michael Buble nonstop and getting ready for a warm Sunday. Not sure I'll be needing all the fuzzy socks and flannel sheets anytime soon! It's so weird having this extra hot December, as if we don't get the heat year-round anyway!

Black + White Checked Top

Top: A local boutique {similar HERE at ASOS for $36}
Jeans: American Eagle {old, similar HERE}

Get the Look - HERE 

It's Monday and next weekend is Christmas, what!? My winter wardrobe has been on hold...probably indefinitely...because I'll be having an 80 degree Christmas this year. That means more outfits like this one: simple off-the-shoulder tops and ripped denim jeans. I'm also wearing a super trendy piece of jewelry here, my choker! It has a pearl on it which makes it a little more girly. I found the top I'm wearing at a local boutique on sale, but ASOS has a really cool one for $36 right now. My outfit posts will look so out of place in comparison to some bloggers' cold wintery looks, but I can't help it! Thanks for stopping by and make sure to come along my Christmas adventures through Twitter and Instagram.

Poncho + Boyfriend Jeans Look

Outfit Details:
Hat: Floppy Hat {Forever 21, similar HERE At H&M}

Casual boyfriend jeans are the best to wear during in-between cold and warm temps. I love mine from Old Navy because they are a dark wash and compliment mostly all of my looks! The poncho I am wearing is one from Forever 21 and is listed at under $16 which is a great find. I also decided to finally break in my new white sneakers. I found them on sale for $15 at Charlotte Russe! I love a great bargain and these athletic shoes are so trendy at the moment. These sneakers will be my dupe for any expensive Adidas ones. I just have to make sure I keep them clean! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Check out my other social media links below:
