Booties: Target
Louis Vuitton Neverfull
Gucci Sunglasses: Christmas Gift (From my in-laws!)





  




Nick and I went on a date today; we went for a bike ride and out to lunch. And yes I wore wedged booties bike riding! I wore this loose sweater today with a cozy scarf because the wind goes right through it. I received these lovely sunglasses for Christmas from my in-laws. My new favorite pair! They are a little fancier than RayBans and I dig em :) 
In case you didn't notice...I'm in love with the booties from Target! They are cute and an incredible deal!

Thanks for reading!

I had no idea that I wouldn't be posting till after Christmas, so Merry Christmas a day late! I hope it was full of joy, sparkles, and yummy food. My sister got me this top and booties for Christmas. Lately I've been gaga over comfy outfits dressed up with heels. I have been searching for the perfect bootie that had a V front and my sister found a lovely pair of Vince Camutos! The heel isn't crazy tall so I can run a marathon in them...or just trek around campus! BTW it's almost 2012..crazy!

What are you wearing for New Years Eve?

Camel Tan


Metal Head Band: Styles
Sweater: H&M
Denim: Forever 21
Louboutin Heels





I'm so thankful to be on winter break and not having long days. I'm finishing up a fun DIY that I'm hoping to post later this week. Today I wanted to keep it simple, I put on a big sweater and tried to dress it up with a pair of heels. The heel height is only a few inches so they're perfect for whatever! I found this old headband earlier today and liked the Grecian look it had, I put on some pink lipstick and was ready for the day!
Hope you are enjoying your week and thank you for reading :)

Nick surprised me with a city date on Friday. I really enjoy just going to the city, we used to live like 10 minutes away and I kinda miss it! I love to go to coffee shops and coffee in general (Shout out to Erin from Captivated by Grace who enjoys coffee as much as me!) so we stopped at a popular place called Blue Bottle. Yuuummm. When we left Nick snapped some fashion pictures before part two of our little date! I layered up because I'm not crazy about wearing big coats, so I wore my incredibly warm leather leggings and a few different shirts, added my mega huge tote and my rose gold watch for some bling :)

Later we went on a sunset/twilight cruise. It was really nice just to relax, sip wine, and listen to live music. It was also an amazing way to end a crazy week of finals!
Here are some snapshots!

 Treats! We had yummy macaroons too :)

 Prosciutto is my guilty pleasure. So bad but so good!

Instagram Lovin'

Here is life lately through my iPhone camera:


Feather and orchid bouquet!

 After my hardest final I came home to my amazing husband I had not seen for two days aaaand he got me my absolute favorite coffee ever, iced mint mojito from Philz. I was feeling extra loved :)
 Twilight cruise: romantic and sparkly

 Blue bottle latte!

  My little brothers are fascinated by lipstick.

 Last day of art class I had a homemade treat waiting for me on my desk from my classmate, he's like 75 and reminds me of the little man from Up. Cute!

 Handsome husband :)

I was trying to study for my history final and was even distracted in that book. But seriously, how glam is Jackie Kennedy?! Look at that color-blocking!

Gray Tweed


Cynthia Rowley Tweed Jacket: TJMaxx
Sweater & Scarf: Forever 21
Rich and Skinny Jeans: Platos
Pumps: Kohls
Michael Kors Watch




I wore this to class today, it was my hardest final and finally over! Pheew.
I got this tweed jacket last week. I saw it at TJMaxx a month ago and passed on it, when I went back it was on the clearance rack in my size! I was excited especially since it's Cynthia Rowley and only $15. I really like the way it flares out at the bottom, the back is pleated and adds a fancy look. I paired it with some dark jeans, suede pumps, a scarf and sweater for extra warmth.

Hope your week is swell! Thanks for reading :)
