Get Ready With Me for a Holiday Party

Chloe Drew bag // Jimmy Choo pumps, similar & less expensive HERE

'Tis the season for holiday parties, and I couldn't be more excited about it! One retailer I can always turn to for holiday party accessories, clothes and makeup is Nordstrom. This year I'm particularly loving their holiday accessories, like these gorgeous dark pink tassel earrings (I also love these from yesterday's post!). My Chloe Drew bag is always a favorite, and it's the perfect size to carry to a party (it's not too big, but it still fits everything I need, including my iPhone Plus). For this look, I also wanted very "glowy" makeup - I used this highlighter on my cheekbones and it really pops. 

As you can see from these photos, I finally got around to putting up my Christmas tree! I tried to do it the other day by myself but it was too heavy (haha). I'm so happy it's up - the twinkling lights are so cheerful. Happy Wednesday, everyone!

The "It" Boots for Winter

white pants // Panacea tassel earrings // MAC lipstick in"syrup"

One of my favorite trends for fall/winter is the over-the-knee boot. A pair that fits close to your legs is very flattering and can make your legs look a mile long! I'm obsessed with these Stuart Weitzman highland boots from Nordstrom - I've had them for several years now and they're still in great condition. If these aren't for you, Nordstrom has a TON of over-the-knee boots in a variety of price ranges! These are a really great dupe for the ones I'm wearing, for a really good price point.

Just a side note but I also love these silver tassel earrings - they would be perfect for holiday parties!!

Thanksgiving Outfit + $1,500 GIVEAWAY!

turtleneck sweater dress (comes in four colors!) // Prada handbag

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! I will be wearing this outfit to Thanksgiving dinner with my family tonight - this turtleneck sweater dress comes in four different colors and is so cozy! It's also stretchy so it leaves room for all the turkey I plan on eating today. And since the Black Friday Sales have already started, looks like I'll be doing some online shopping too (eating and shopping, what could be better!?).

On a more serious note, this is the first Thanksgiving since my grandfather passed away and although it's going to be a tough one for my family, I have so many reasons to be thankful today. A God who shows us unconditional love, a family and boyfriend that love me, the cutest pets Winnie and Prince George... and truly, the most amazing readers. I could not be more thankful for you guys and all the support you've shown me over the years. Without you, this blog would be nothing. I am truly grateful for all of you, so today I wanted to show you a little bit of my appreciation with a giveaway to shop the Cyber Monday Sales.

The prizes include:

- One $1,000 Visa gift card
- Two $250 Visa gift cards

There are three chances to win! The winner will be announced on my blog Monday at 12 a.m. and you must email me to redeem your prize ( You will probably want to check right away to see if you won so you can shop all the Cyber Monday sales that day!
