College Football Rivalry Week #OOTD

In the Bluegrass State it was the Battle of the Governor’s Cup. And it looks like the Cardinals will be holding on to it. Go Cards!!! And I want to add that I am a graduate of both schools so I was a winner either way. Who is your school’s rival?  When cheering on  your favorite sports teams you can always be fashionable. I paired leggings and knee boots with this buffalo plaid shirt from Old Navy and fur vest found here from Forever 21. Made for a great outfit that showed off the Card’s colors.

Black Friday or Thursday

So black Friday or should I say Thursday? What was your damage? I didn’t do too bad. Visited our local outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass and picked up some great finds at Michael KorsRalph Lauren, and North Face. Then headed over to one of our local malls and made a pit stop at Lululemon. And no shopping trip would be complete without stopping by Starbucks. Shopping hall post coming soon.

Happy Early Christmas to Me!! :)

So I am really excited about this early Christmas gift that one of my coworker’s husband made for me. It is a bourbon barrel bar. Yes an actual real bourbon barrel! It was spit in half and shelves were added to make it a functional bar or storage for bottles or whatever you like. I am a little obsessed with it. It’s awesome right? It will definitely be put to good use.


Yes I already dragged out some of the Christmas decoration. I couldn’t wait! Could you? Do you have your decorations up yet? I love Christmas! All the decor and lights. I like to put it out as soon as possible so I can enjoy it.

Thursday and Friday #OOTD

What up Peeps! Happy Sunday. I hope your weekend was great and that you are making great plans for this upcoming holiday week. Three day work week, Thanksgiving, and black friday shopping…..I AM SO EXCITED!!! What about you? Check out my #OOTD from this past Thursday and Friday.
On Thursday I wore one of my favorite scarfs. I bought this skull and fleur de lis scarf while on vacay in Rome, Italy. Paired it with a eggplant colored sweater from Banana Republic, skinny jeans, and tan booties from Target.
This is one of my favorite sweaters that i bought a couple years ago from the Gap. It is a oldie but goodie, which is still very stylish. Paired with some skinnies and riding boots. Accessorized with my FitbitMichael Kors watch, and my Versona bracelet pictured below. 

I got these great David Yurman look-a-like bracelets from Versona on clearance $3.99 for the silver and $4.99 for the gold. I love these and a great deal.
