Glitzy Denim and Yummy Desserts

Happy New Year! Let me virtually stuff cake in your face as you think about your new year's resolutions! .Just like every one else I have set new year's resolutions and can proudly say that I have stuck to every one of them (all sixteen days this year!). I am a big believer in new years goals, lists, and making yourself a better person. Each year I like to choose a word or quote to be my theme of the year. This year I chose the word "PUSH" I also found a quote to go with it,
"Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you."
 I have set little reminders through out my bedroom, in my planner, and placed a picture of this quote on my laptop desktop. That way it is always fresh in my memory. I am all about setting short term goals each week or month to help myself accomplish my big goals. The other day I had a sister date at The Chocolate Dessert Cafe.  I love getting together with any of my sisters. We chat, make each other laugh, make each other mad, discuss our goals, and plus I can make them take my pictures! On this sister date I went for a little denim-glitz, if you will. I paired my denim up with my favorite sparkly earrings. Denim is one of my wardrobe staples. I love that you can dress it up or dress it down.  We had a lovely afternoon chatting at The Chocolate. It has been a favorite hang out since it opened in 2009.  My personal favorite desserts are the chocolate with caramel cupcake & The Kitty Katrina signature cake. I know it's the new year and you're probably wondering why I tempted you with all these delicious desserts. And that's because I believe moderation in everything! I have found that in setting my goals that if you go cold turkey instead of teach yourself moderation you will never obtain those goals. I am all about balance. Here's to another year of pushing myself and finding balance in everything.. including a few cupcakes here and there :)

How We Wore It // Fall Transition

Jeans: Target//Shirt:Cotton On//Blazer:H&M//Necklace & Earrings: Nordstrom//Booties:Forever Young
Lipstick: "Sin" by MAC

 As I think about transitioning my wardrobe into the Fall all I can think about is layering. You throw on your shirt, your cardigan, your light jacket, a scarf, and a hat. I love layering because let me let you in on a little secret about myself: I do NOT like anything long sleeve. I am okay with long sleeve jackets with a shirt under but I can't stand wearing a plain long sleeve. Maybe I'm claustrophobic or something? ha! When I saw our outfit inspiration I got excited because I recently had just gotten jeans with holes in them & I have been digging on them. I also was excited because I was able to use a summer shirt for this outfit. That's the beauty of fall is that you can just throw a cardigan or blazer over summer shirts and WA-la! you have a fall looking outfit. I am by no means a fashionista but I sure do love this time of the month where I get to show you all my love for fashion. This outfit was right up my ally because I take any chance I can to wear my summer clothes longer & wear a blazer in the office. What is your favorite fall item? Here's to lots of boots, scarfs, hats & of course dark dark lipstick. Happy Fall Y'all!

How We Wore It // Summer Cool

//Sunglasses: Target// Shoes: Nordstrom Lipstick: Snob by MAC

As much as I love fall time I am super sad to see this summer come to a close. It obviously has been a busy summer considering I haven't blogged since the last time I did the How We Wore It collaboration, Yikes! (insert monkey covering his eyes emoji here). So huge shout out to Brooke for hosting and keeping me on my A game. I have so many fun summer adventures to share including an amazing trip abroad! I was so excited that this months HWWI inspiration came from Julia at Gal Meets Glam. I have followed her for years & love her classy style. I had nothing close in my closet to what she had but her soft dressy summer outfit made me want something light. I love this dress from H&M because you can dress it up for date night, wear it running errands, or a girls night out! I like that Julia's outfit looks comfy yet dressed up. That is what inspired me to wear this black dress. The slits on both sides give it a little sexy edge & anyone who knows me knows I love to pair a hat with just about any outfit.
 Here's to wearing all my summertime outfits as long as I can!
