Happy Thursday!!! So close to the weekend, holla! *always a decade behind with my slang* Today I bring you the most amazing jeans I have ever owned. I think we can all agree that jeans are pretty dang boring, but when I saw these, all of the little wires in the shopping part of my brain (what, you don’t have one of those?) started firing. I absolutely loveeeee the studs on these jeans. They are so unique and fun and make me feel extra stylish. I am excited to pair these with different shoes and tops for even more spunky looks.

Do y’all have any fun plans for the weekend? I know I do! If you didn’t read my last post, this weekend is my birthday weekend and I am headed to Charlotte! I am so pumped! I get very strangely excited to go home and just chill with my family and boyfriend. You would think I was going on some sort of extravagant trip, but no I’m just a homebody so I get really pumped to just spend time at home. #wild #partier #crazy

Oh, and I’m also baking myself a cake so I’m pretty excited for the extra calories.

Happy December!!! Only 21 more days until Christmas! I am so ready to be home for the holidays. It’s all I can really focus on right now (looks like I’m in good shape for finals, huh? haha). I’ll study for my finals after I finish looking at Christmas cookie recipes on Pinterest. “Just ten more minutes,” has been my motto the past few days.

I wore this outfit when I was home for Thanksgiving and my family and I went to get a Christmas tree! I love love love this cape! It is so festive and really good quality. It sold out so many times online, so it was long gone by the time I was able to wear it. But I found some similar ones that are really cute, so those are all linked for you guys!

I hope you all had a great weekend, and are enjoying this holiday season with your loved ones! I’m gonna go narrow down my Christmas cookie recipes. As soon as I get to Charlotte for the holidays, I plan on having a baking extravaganza…all in the name of staying warm for the winter 😉

Knit Vest and Puppy Love

| Harley’s sweater: PetSmart |

Hi, everyone! Today’s post brings you a special and adorable guest…my dog, Harley. He is the youngest of my three dogs and probably the most hilarious. I decided to use him as a prop for this shoot, and much to his dismay, try to find him a sweater that somewhat matched mine lol. My other two dogs were acting so jealous that he got to wear a sweater and they didn’t, but I know they would have been so ticked off if I had decided to put it on one of them instead. Those foolish pups!

In the end though, Harley and I both ended up being cozy together in our sweaters! This vest is from the Nordstrom sale is surprisingly still in stock in some sizes! It is really soft and comfortable and I highly recommend it! Also, I know I wear these ankle boots in pretty much every post, but if someone wants to buy me some more shoes so I can switch things up, by all means, feel free.

I hope you all are having a great start to week! I somehow managed to make it through working all of Black Friday weekend, and now am just trying to get through this last week of classes before exams start. Almost….finished….can’t….wait…..

Black Faux Leather Jacket

| Jacket: BLANKNYC | Top: Loft | Pants: J. Crew | Shoes: Vince Camuto | Sunglasses: Le Specs |

Red Alert, people: Thanksgiving is next week!!! Praise the Lord! In just 10 days I will be stuffing my face with mac and cheese, casseroles of various sorts, and a medley of carbohydrates that will lead me to unbutton my jeans in satisfaction at the end of the day. Keep an eye out, because later this week I’ll be posting some ideas for what to wear for Thanksgiving, and I made sure to keep in mind the concealment of full stomachs, because that’s usually a pretty big concern of mine on the holiday.

On a different note, I wore this outfit one day while I was in Charlotte a couple weekends ago! I love the look of this lace top under the leather jacket! This jacket is from last year, but they brought the same jacket back this year, which I linked above, and it just has gold hardware instead of silver! It also comes in five colors, one of which being a metallic color. I’m not sure how I feel about it…It’s very bold, but I feel like it could be styled in really cute way! Go check it out and let me know what you think about it!

I hope you all are having a great start to your week! I’m just trying to make it through to the end!

Fun Twist on a Button-Up

Good morning! I hope you all are well and had a great weekend! I’m not ready to take on the week, but at least I’m coming back from a great weekend! I spent it in Charlotte and the trees were freaking amazing. It makes me emotional when the trees turn colors because it’s just so beautiful and one of my favorite things in life! I went online and found a stock photo of some fall trees and made it my laptop background, just so that I will have a little fall to take back with me to Charleston. Lord knows the trees there are still going to be 90% green when I get back!

What better way to celebrate the fall leaves than to match them?? This burgundy poplin top went perfect with my surroundings and I honestly couldn’t have tied the look together better myself. I think this outfit would be great for Thanksgiving, but personally, I am planning on going for something a little more flowy…ya know, for eating purposes. But if you aren’t an animal like me, than totally go for this look!
