It’s Ok to be A Little Extra

It’s ok to be a little extra during the holiday’s right?!? The holidays are a perfect time to wear that outfit or specific piece you usually never wear. For me it’s this faux fur white coat. I love this coat and it is super warm. I am not sure why I don’t wear it more during the cold winter months, probably because I don’t want to be extra all the time, lol! 
This coat pairs well with almost anything; jeans, leggings, and even this black A line skirt, I am wearing here. I wanted to be festive for the season, so I added a pop of color (I would like to call it cranberry lol!). Since holiday parties are starting this weekend I thought it would be the perfect time to do the first party look of the month. This outfit could be worn to your work get-together or to a friend and family gathering. I accessorized it with over the knee boots, my favorite leopard clutch, and these multiple color feather earrings, which are one major sale by the way. How do I look?

Perfect Sweaters for the Holidays

Shop: Sweater | LeggingsTunic 

As our holiday season kicks off, there is no perfect way to dress then in a warm cozy sweater. They are great for holiday parties, shopping for gifts or just cozying up on the couch to watch Christmas movies. This cardigan I am wearing here definitely will be on full rotation all holiday season. I paired it with my favorite faux leather leggings, and a loose fitting tunic. All three of these items are on sale right now. Black Friday through cyber Monday weekend is one of the best times to restock your wardrobe for amazing prices.

Everyday Skincare w/ Color Up Therapeutics

 In a world where the term CBD is used daily, why not use it for you skincare as well??  I am not an expert on CBD but what I do know is that it has helped many.  I also think that it is genius to put it into facial skincare, like Color Up Therapeutics has done. “At the root of our CBD infused line of professional skincare products is the belief that when our body finds homeostasis- balance – it benefits not only our overall wellbeing, but every organ within the body”. This definitely includes our face and the biggest organ of all our skin.

I have been using Color Up Therapeutics for the past 2 1/2 weeks and pretty much loved it from the first day. Foaming cleansers have not been my favorite in the past, but after trying the hydrating one from this line I can truly say it’s amazing. Normally foaming cleansers dry out my skin, but not this one. I actually feel moisturized after using it. Then add in the serum which uses hyaluronic acid to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and adds extra hydration. Following it up with the UV Damage Repair Moisturizer. This allows all day moisture and prevents your skin for the tireless effects of sun exposure and the harsh climates. Finishing up with their lip treatment that keeps your lips from dryness with organic hemp seed oil.

What is your skincare routine? Why not add a little CBD to it with Color Up Therapeutics.

The Perfect Skirt for your Holiday Outfit

                      Shop: Skirt | Blazer | Blouse | Necklace | Earrings | Tights | Boots | Clutch

Holidays are among us and I cannot wait! It is may favorite time of the year. Seeing everyone’s Christmas decor already up makes me want to put mine up this weekend. Is it too early? I usually do it Thanksgiving weekend. Speaking of Thanksgiving…what are you wearing? I found the perfect skirt for family Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving. This plaid mini is super cute and great for cold weather. It has a side zip and fits true to size. I paired it with one of my favorite lace tops and my hands down favorite blazer (I mean I get compliments on it every time I wear it). And what is fall without some patterned tights? They add so much to an outfit, as well as these over the knee boots. I am a fan of OTK boots with skirts and dresses. They are so fun and tie this look together.

Always a Dress Girl

                     
                           Shop: Dress | Earrings | Sunglasses | Watch | Booties | Lipstick
I think that dresses are the most easiest and stylish piece of attire that any woman can wear. An all in one outfit with no stress of finding coordinating individual clothing that comes together to make a full look. This dress is one of my favorites and it is no surprise that it is animal print. I like the thicker material that it is constructed with, which makes it great for Fall. I bought this dress at a local boutique (Work the Metal), but have linked similar ones below. I paired it with black booties, a black leather cross body, added some color with my sunnies and these cute earrings.
