I wanted to put together a little lookbook with some of my favorite outfits that I have done this past year because oh my goodness was 2014 a year! It was one of the craziest I can think of. I still can't wrap my mind around some of the things that have happened. I'm honestly quite speechless. God has shown me so much of Him and His provision this year; it makes me more excited to see what He will show me in 2015. 

I have to say I am a little nervous for 2015 to come upon us. So many big things are happening (*cough *cough graduation and finding what I am going to do after high school...). Ahhh, it's so exciting and terrifying at the same time!!

2014 has been the first full year I have done blogging, and wow oh wow what this experience has done for me! I honestly never thought that I would do something like this but it has really helped me in so many ways of my life. I just wanted to say thank you for following me on this adventure. It has truly been a year!

Oh and I just have to give a little shout out to my momma for helping me make this blog happen. If y'all didn't know, she's my photographer but most importantly my biggest supporter. So thank you, Mom!

I hope you all have a safe New Years filled with lots of sequins!

Cheers to 2015!!

Belted Cable Knit...







Sweater- L.L.Bean [similar here & here]
Dress, turned into skirt- Old Navy [similar hereherehere & here]
Tights- Capezio [similar here & here]
Boots- L.L.Bean
Belt- Charlotte Russe [similar here & here]
Earrings- Old, similar
Bracelets- Bow: Susie Raine; other 2 were gifts


I am actually pretty surprised at how this outfit came out. I literally threw it together with old pieces from my closet an hour before a Christmas Eve service. To me it seems very preppy, which I am normally not a fan of, but I like how it turned out. 

Sorry I was late posting this! It was rainy yesterday so I wasn't able to grab the pictures until later this afternoon.

 Thanks for reading!

Merry Christmas!





















Sweater- Forever 21 [similar here & here]
Leggings- Old Navy, girls [similar here & here]
Boots- Rack Room Shoes [identical]
Earrings- Old, similar
Necklace- J Crew Factory
Bracelet- Susie Raine


Merry Christmas, my loves!!

The older I get the more I cherish this holiday. To me it's not about the peppermint, presents, or even family. It's about falling to my knees as God gave me Love, something I never should have gotten. A love so intimate that it bring even the hardest hearts to tears. That is what Christmas is to me. 

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." -John 3:16

Ultimate Christmas Shopping Guide...


Untitled #19

Deer bedding / Rifle paper co recipe box / C Wonder dinnerware / C Wonder teapot / Voluspa scented candle / Kate Spade vase / Kate Spade Places To Go, People To See Coffee Table Book











T-MINUS 3 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS. Where has the time gone? If you still haven't gotten all your shopping done (or if you're like me, none of it) then I have a quick little guide for everyone on your list! 

On Saturday we went into Boston to find more favorite places and well, we didn't succeed in our mission. But I got to spend a few minutes in the city and they had Christmas trees and lights up so I was good.

I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday filled week so far. Thank you for reading!

Striped Blazer...







Blazer- Gap [similar herehere, & here]
Tee- Gap
Denim- Forever 21
Boots- Rack Room Shoes [identical]
Scarf- Old Navy [similar here & here]
Sunnies- Forever 21 [similar here & here]
Earrings- Old, similar; pink pearls were a gift
Bracelet- Susie Raine


This blazer is completely different yet still classy and unique from the typical solid colored blazer. I grabbed it about a year ago on the sales rack; therefore, I don't think it is going to be back in stock. Although, I did find some similar choices for you above! 

This week has been the kind where you have no motivation to do anything. Like absolutely nothing. I'm hoping that changes veryyy quickly. After all, next week is the last time to really enjoy the holidays!

Thanks for reading!
