Sweater: Savoir Faire || Jeans: Forever 21 || Boots (similar): H&M || Purse: Violet Ray

Happy Monday everyone! You can never go wrong with a neutral outfit plus pairing black and nudes is a win, win. This Violet Ray purse has easily made its way to my favorite accessory that I own. The nude color goes with everything and the white pom gives it a fun little pop! Poms are a great way to spice up a keychain or a purse! I’ve seen bloggers rocking poms on their shoes as well. Seriously, check out the Violet Ray purses! You can shop my look with the links above!

Hello again and Happy Tuesday! There are a lot of things that I love about this moto jacket but the fur details on it just make it that much better! I got this jacket at Forever 21 when I was in New Orleans for only $23. The fur trim on the jacket can be removed if you want for a different look. It is sold out on the website but I linked a similar one above from H&M that is equally great. You can shop the rest of the look with the links above.

Top (similar): Free People & Forever 21 || Jeans: Blank NYC || Backpack (similar): Forever 21 

Happy Monday everyone!! This floral top has been in my closet for a while now and I never seem to get tired of it. I love the print and how it fits. Like I promised, I switched it up and wore my flare jeans, I forgot how much I loved these jeans. They are so soft and stretchy! I absolutely love purses and I haven’t tried the backpack trend until now and I kind of love it. I ordered it to take to New Orleans with me and it worked so great for being on the go 24/7! They are sold out of the backpack and the top but I linked similar ones above!!

Coat (sold out): Savoir Faire || Jeans: Forever 21 || Belt: Target || Shoes (sold out): Forever 21

Hello again! I hope everyones week is going very well. I can’t believe all the holidays are already over. It went by so fast and as much as I hate taking down Christmas decorations, I am so excited to see what 2016 will bring.

This coat is truly one of my favorites right now but is unfortunately sold out, noooo. I’ll post the link above at a later time if it comes back in stock! Of course, once again I’m wearing my favorite jeans, I promise I’m going to switch it up soon. But what I really wanted to talk about was the booties above. They are amazing and pretty comfortable. They do come up a little high and can rub your leg but other than that I had no trouble at all with them. I love that they are casual with a little heel and the buckle details on the side are my favorite. They are out of stock but I’m going to link some other favorites with buckles below!

  1. Flat Leather Booties – Forever 21
  2. Medium Heel Leather Booties – Forever 21 
  3. Higher price Buckle Booties – Forever 21

CAUSAL CARDIGAN

Cardigan- Sold out (Similar): Forever 21 || Shirt: Forever 21 || Jeans: Forever 21 || Shoes (Similar): Just Fab || Sunglasses (Similar): RayBans 

Hello again everyone and happy holidays! I can’t believe Christmas is coming up so soon. Since I’ve been home I’ve been going through my moms old stuff and found some keepers. I had to get her permission of course but the ring and the sunglasses are both hers and I am in love. The Ray bans were my moms in the 80’s and my dad got my mom the ring for their 5th anniversary. They are still going strong after 27 years I might add.

This outfit is perfect for running around town and being cozy. Of course, I’m wearing my favorite jeans from Forever 21 and my black booties are always a go to for all day comfort. This cardigan is also so warm and cozy. It was a little bit more expensive for a Forever 21 purchase but it was definitely worth it. It’s a great material and keeps me warm all day. It was sold out on the site but I linked a similar one up above. You can shop the rest of the look with the links above!

HOLIDAY READY

Turtleneck : Forever 21 || Coat: Savoir Faire || Jeans: Forever 21 || Shoes: Forever 21 || Glasses: Target

Hello everyone and happy Friday! With the holidays quickly approaching, I know tons of y’all are busy with holiday parties, and picking out outfits can be tricky. I love this look for a casual holiday party. It’s comfortable and very affordable which is always the best. Every piece I have on other than the coat is from Forever 21.

This turtleneck is one of my favorite sweaters that I have this winter. It is so soft and it would be great for layering and staying warm. I love these jeans so much as well. I wish I would have bought 3 more pairs just like them! I cut the bottoms of them to give them a little more detail and I love the frayed look. These booties are also Forever 21 and I am pleasantly surprised how comfortable they are. You can never really tell when getting shoes from there how they are going to fit but I love how these fit on my foot. It took no time at all breaking these in and you can wear them for hours without being in excruciating pain. This coat is a go to this winter. It’s so thin and light weight, it’s perfect if you already have on a chunky sweater. I really do hate being to bulky and this coat is the perfect solution.

I finally got a camera! A Canon Rebel T5 and I am so excited about it. The difference in the pictures are amazing. For the longest time I was taking blog pictures with my iPhone, it worked for a while but it didn’t compare to the other bloggers and their amazing photos. My birthday was a couple of weeks ago and it was a great gift. I’m so happy with it and can’t wait to take more pictures! (You can shop my look with the links above)

Hello again everyone! There are so many thing that I like about this outfit, including the price of everything! The entire outfit was under $100, crazy I know! My favorite thing ever is having basics like these that won’t break the bank! Each piece of this outfit is so versatile, which is great for switching up your looks. I seriously wear these jeans all the time and they were only $30. I wore this outfit to a birthday dinner the other night and I’m going to be outfit repeating very soon!
