Fur Vest

A fur vest is one of my favorite winter accessory. It can take a boring outfit and add a little more style or a slightly different twist to it.

A fur vest can be paired with many pieces such as jeans, leggings or even a dress. I

love a good vest because it can be worn to social outing, work (depending on your job), or even to church. I usually wear mine in place of a coat in the fall months. Below I chose to style it with a dress and knee boots. This dress, which is linked below,  is only $20 and it is one of my favorites. I kept it casual and simple with not too many accessories, because the vest is the only big accessory you need. I bought this vest last year but I have linked similar ones. Shop the look below. Hope you enjoy!

Sweater Weather

                                          
                    
                     
    
It is definitely sweater weather right now. If your sweater collection is looking a little bare or if you just want to add to your existing wardrobe then I have you covered.

What is your favorite type of sweater? Mine is a cowl neck or an off the shoulder sweater.
Many sweaters at department stores and boutiques can get a little pricey so below I have linked many stylish sweaters, that are all under $100 (and most under $50) that don’t break the bank. Enjoy!

Blue the alternative to the LBD

There comes a time when you find the perfect dress that you just want to wear it everywhere. Or is it just the perfect dress that is acceptable to wear everywhere?

I mean you can wearing to work, church, date night, or even to a social event or party. Any dress that can be worn to multiple functions is a winner in my book. Do you have a dress like that? I feel that way about this dress. It has been in my closet for awhile (this is one of those great shop your closet moments), and I not sure why I have not worn it. This fitted dress is a great alternative to the the LBD if you want to add some color to your wardrobe. I paired it with a leather jacket and leopard heels. You can never go wrong with a little leopard. I topped it off with gold jewelry and a tote to match. I have linked similar items below. Hope you enjoy!

Where are my wine lovers at? If you are like me you love a good wine. You reach for that before any other drink. I am the girl at the tailgate party before the game asking for the wine instead of beer. Don’t get me wrong, I will indulge in a beer every once in a while but there is nothing like a good glass of wine. These Vino Mio Foldable Wine Bottles  are awesome, which you can find here. Basically it is an easy and convenient way to store and transport your favorite wine.

The Vino Mio is durable and leak proof. Not only is it reuseable, it is collapsible, and foldable so it can fit almost anywhere. It is great for when you do not want to be bothered with a glass bottle, or to tote around a wine opener. Just fill up your Vino Mio wine bottle at home and you can transport it to the event or party you plan to attend. It is perfect for BBQs, picnics, tailgating, the beach, or upcoming holiday parties. It is easy to pour, easy to fill, and works great to store your wine when you do not have a wine cork. The Vino Mio holds up to 750ML of liquid and is less heavy than an actual wine glass bottle. The best part about it is that there is a 100% lifetime money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the product. Honestly any company that gives a lifetime guarantee deserves my business. They are affordable and convenient, two of the main things I look for when purchasing any product. Below I have linked some great wine glasses if you need to add to your collection. Try out the Vino Mio Foldable Bottle and let me know how you like it. Enjoy!

Stocking Stuffers

After all the Christmas decorations are put up and the big gifts are bought it is time to think about the stocking stuffers. These items can be just as exciting as the ones that are wrapped and put under the tree. I do not know about your family but in my family it is a tradition to go through your stocking first before opening your other gifts. Sometimes it is hard to think of something small to fit inside a stocking so, below I have compiled a couple items, in all price ranges, that are sure to please. Happy shopping!
