It is Christmas Week and I could not be more excited! If you follow me on instagram you know we have already started the holiday celebrations. 

Today I am sharing a gorgeous Silver A line dress from Savoir Faire. I adore this silhouette as it is flattering on all body types. It has just the right about of sparkle and is perfect for a NYE celebration. I paired it with a plum blazer and a black cape for a dressier look. I love layering pieces to add a bit of texture or color. I then dressed it down a bit by adding a coordinating blanket scarf. This is one of those dresses that will be great year after year. 

I am sharing a few more NYE looks this week so be sure to stop back by! If you are traveling, be safe and enjoy this wonderful time of year.

Happy Friday guys! Today I am sharing an adorable Plaid Bow Dress/Coat from Chicwish. This piece is perfection! When I tried it on, I didn't want to take it off. The quality is fantastic and I adore the emerald green plaid fabric. I plan on wearing this on Christmas Eve for Church with the family and probably every day in between. It can be buttoned up and worn as a dress or unbuttoned and worn as a coat. This is one of those pieces you will be excited to get out year after year.

Jumpsuit // Sparkle

JUMPSUIT Lucy Paris c/o (I suggest to size down) | JACKET old ( very similar, love this) | HEELS Jimmy Choo Anouk (love these and these under $100) | CLUTCH Gigi New York c/o | BELT (similar)| Earrings Vintage (love these)

I have always been a huge fan of the jumpsuit. In the summer its the romper, but when the temps get a bit cooler, bring on the full jumpsuits. I love the dressy casual feel of this one from Lucy Paris. The loose fit of the pants are a bit casual, but the overall tuxedo feel of the suit is dressy. Being the holiday season, I paired it with a sequin blazer. If you do not own a sequin blazer, you need one. Everyone deserves a bit of sparkle during the holidays.

We went and saw Santa last night and it was so much fun! Olivia was a tiny little thing last year, and she was born a bit early so we needed to keep her home a lot when she was a baby. SO this was her first time for her to see Santa. I was not sure if she would love him or be scared. Recently she has been OBsessed with the Rudolph movie, so I figured she may love Ol St Nick. I was correct. She was quite fond of him and even walked right over to him. I have always loved the Holidays, but with my baby girl, they are 1000% times for magical.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Green Maxi Skirt

SKIRT Savoir Faire c/o (IN LOVE! Call store for inquiries)(love this and this too) | SWEATER Lookbook Store  (love this and this) | JACKET Savoir Faire c/o (love this ) | SCARF Zara (almost exact, and here) | PUMPS Steve Madden | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker Super Duper

So.... how amazing is this maxi skirt from Savoir Faire. When I saw the Holiday line at Savoir Faire last month, I fell in LOVE with this piece.  It is the most PERFECT shade of green and the movement of the skirt is breathtaking. I wanted to dress it down a bit so I paired it with a grey fitted sweater and a leather jacket. I love taking dressier pieces and adding casual pieces with them. I wanted to add a bit of color, so the WORLD FAMOUS(but really, it is) plaid scarf was the perfect touch.  It was crazy windy the day we took these pics, so ignore my hair and admire the movement of the gorgeous skirt ;)

I had to share a gif of the skirt so you could really tell how beautiful it is!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Holiday Layers

SWEATER J Crew Factory | SKIRT Ann Taylor (40% off!)| SCARF J CREW (love this and this) | COAT old (simliar, love this and this) | Booties Marc Fisher c/o (on sale!) | CROSSBODY Gigi New York  Carly c/o | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker Super Duper | EARRINGS Purple Peridot

Back again today with another look with the Gigi New York Crossbody. I wanted to dress down the sequin skirt a bit, so I paired it with an oversized red sweater. I want this sweater in every color! It is super comfortable and the perfect length.  I got this J Crew Scarf during the cyber monday sale and I have worn it non stop. It has sold ouch each time they restock it, but I love this and this equally as much.  I pulled out some blue in the scarf by wearing a cobalt blue coat. During the holidays it is easy to wear mostly red and green (totally guilty!), but mix it up a bit and add in another fun pop of color like I did.

The Gigi New York crossbody was an easy choice to pair with this outfit. The cross-body design is perfect to "grab and go." I also love how the adjustable strap can be worn on the shoulder too. It is the perfect year-round bag.


Lots more holiday looks to come so be sure to stop back by.
Have a wonderful day!

Gigi New York Resort Collection

SKIRT ANN TAYLOR (love!)  | TOP Banana Republic (similar) | COAT old (simliar and similar also love this blazer ) | BOW Custom (love this black one) | HEELS Steve Madden (staple!) | CLUTCH Gigi New York Carly Convertible Clutch c/o | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker Super Duper

It is finally here! I am so excited to team up with one of my favorite Handbag designers, Gigi New York and my gorgeous friend Kate, to launch their gorgeous Resort Collection. We have been planning this launch since Fashion week and it has been so hard to keep hush hush!

With this collection they released a brand new design, The Carly Reversible Clutch, which is what I am carrying. This bag can be worn as a cross-body, on the shoulder or as a clutch. It is the perfect bag for the girl that likes options. The black and white color block design is chic and timeless. It has quickly become my go-to accessory! The best thing about a black and white bag, is that it can be carried all year long. As always, Gigi offers personalization to their bags and I think its the perfect touch. Be sure to check out the entire Resort Collection here.

I styled my Gigi New York bag with probably one of my all time favorite looks. Every holiday season I gravitate towards sequins. This Ann Taylor Sequin mini is the perfect holiday skirt. It has a stretchy waist so its super comfortable, and the length is perfect. I paired it with a fitted white Banana Republic blouse that has black piping along the seem. I knew I wanted to incorporate some plaid, so enlisted my mother to make me the perfect bow. It ties the entire look together. (literally ;))

Also, our friend Brittany Fuson teamed up with us for this launch and illustrated our Looks with our Gigi New York Bags.  Brittany's illustrations are my absolute favorite and to be sketched by her was SO much fun! It was so special to have her apart of this exciting launch. Not to mention she is a total sweetheart. Check out her shop here.

Come back tomorrow for my second look with Gigi New York!

SWEATER Lucy Paris c/o (LOVE!) | SKIRT old (almost exact here and in white here) | HEELS Jimmy Choo Anouk (under $100 here, love these) | BAG Prada (similar style) | BRACELET Kendra Scott Jana c/o | EARRINGS Kendra Scott Danielle c/o | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker Super Duper 

With Christmas literally around the corner, it also means NYE is too coming up! NYE is one of my favorite events to dress up for. I am sure that does not come as a surprise if you have been a long time reader. I love some glitz and glamour. For my first NYE Inspirational look, I am featuring this gorgeous Lucy Paris Metallic sweater. How pretty is the purple and green color combination? It has the perfect amount of sheen and I adore the cropped oversized cut. This sweater is perfect to pair with any black skirt you may own, but I decided to dress it up even more and pair it with a feather skirt. Feather skirts can be quite intimidating, but pairing them with a sweater makes them a bit more wearable, especially for NYE! 

The next two weeks are full of holiday and NYE looks so be sure to come back by. 

Have a wonderful day and thank you for reading. 
xoxo Tara
