Little black dresses are a necessity, but sometimes you need a little white dress in your life. Continue reading
We recently got back from a family vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We thought we would give you a glimpse into the outfits we wore while at the beach. Enjoy!
This cute and comfy outfit is perfect for running errands or lounging around the house. When I’m in a hurry to get ready sometimes it’s easiest to throw on a pullover. With this quick outfit, I still feel put together without have to put a ton of time into my look. Plus I love Patagonia pullovers! You can score this one for 30% off! Right now Back County is doing their year-end sale which includes certain Patagonia items. I know I can never resist a good deal.
This year for Christmas, we spent the day with our immediate family at our parents’ house. We had a fun and relaxing day spent eating, opening presents, and just spending time together. One of our favorite things about Christmas now is seeing how excited our niece and nephew (who are 2 and 4) get about Christmas and opening presents! As far as our outfits went for Christmas this year, we ended up coordinating our outfits as you can see. Velvet is really in right now and Red Dress Boutique had pieces that were perfect for Christmas without being over the top. Our looks were completed with over the knee boots from Hope’s that came literally just in time for Christmas. We love that these boots don’t have a big heel like so many over the knee boots do. These boots are super comfortable and were also under $40! Check out the rest of our outfit details below:

On Christmas Eve our family has a couple traditions that we do every year. We always attend a Christmas Eve church service, which is one of our favorite church services of the year. After we get back from church, we eat a simple meal together that doesn’t require too much prep (lately it’s been lasagna-yum), and then we watch A Christmas Story. We love these simple traditions because we get to spend them with our family, which is one of the best things about the holiday season! Here’s our looks from Christmas Eve:
I always look forward to picking out the perfect outfit for Christmas Eve. I wanted this year to tie in Christmas colors so I went with a red portofino shirt from Express. If you haven’t ever gotten a portofino shirt before I definitely recommend them. They are great for so many occasions. Plus right now is a great time to buy them because Express is 50% off everything! I knew I wanted to wear a skirt with this shirt so I decided on my herringbone skirt from J. Crew. Since I was going to church and wanted to be dressier I decided to break out my classic black Dior purse.
I ordered this dress recently from Red Dress Boutique and got it just in time to wear it on Christmas Eve. I really love the dusty plum color of it! I don’t have any clothing items that are this color, and I really like how this color looks with my skin and hair. I decided to wear this J. Crew Factory statement necklace with it, along with booties to make this look dressier. I love that this dress can be dressed up or down, depending on what kind of look your going for!
Stay tuned for our Christmas day outfit of the day post coming up in a few days!

On Friday I went out to eat and did some shopping with Michelle. It was a little colder out but I didn’t want to have to deal with hauling a coat around. I decided to wear a puffer vest. This gray herringbone vest looks great paired with the army green Piko dress. I absolutely love Piko dresses & shirts. They come in a ton of different colors and depending on the color, you can wear it all year round.
Even though I have a Catholic school girl vibe going on I still love this work outfit! I never thought that I would own a sweater vest but now I have two. I think they look so cute paired with a skirt! Speaking of skirts if you don’t already own this style of skirt from J. Crew Factory I highly suggest it. I have multiple colors in it and am always wanting more. I like how comfortable they are as well as the length. Plus J. Crew Factory is great about doing sales so you usually can find it for at least 25% off. My favorite part about this outfit is this skirt is perfect for the holiday season!
Hope you enjoyed my work OOTD!
