Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, Friends! This week has flown by, and I’m not complaining one bit! How was your week?
We are in the process of cleaning things out around our house & making donations. I’m all about “simplicity” around here. This includes my closet. Yikes! Anyone else feel this way?

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you!

ONE
Voluspa Maison Blanc Candle – Macaron

I love burning a candle while I’m cooking, and I think this one might be the next scent I try out.

TWO
Halogen Bow Back Sweater

Does it have a bow? It has three bows! This sweater is adorable, and it also comes in several, happy colors too!

THREE
Dolce Vita Katina Mule

These mules are so fun, and classic at the same time! They come in 4 colors.

FOUR
Tory Burch Rope Knot Stud Earrings

Delicate & pretty traditional stud earrings. Love them in the gold!

Pink Lady

SHOP THE POST:
J.Crew Lace Top / Similar J.Crew Cropped Pants / Similar J.Crew Coat / Target Cateye Sunglasses / Ann Taylor Pumps (similar) / Monogram Elisabetta Slouch Handbag / Similar Kate Spade Gold Watch

If you can’t tell by now, I love the color pink. And if it’s done well, I love the color in pretty much every hue. I usually like to wear pink through accessories, and I have a few pink items on my current wish list like this pair of earrings, these, and this handbag is gorgeous! It’s a great way to brighten up this time of year, & obviously it’s nothing but perfection for Valentine’s Day. It looks chic paired with a monochromatic look like the all black I’m wearing, all navy, or you can even pair pink with red, like seen in my last outfit post here. The list could go on and on. And, it’s a more versatile color than most think. It’s simply “happy!” Wouldn’t you agree?
I bought this J.Crew coat years ago; however, there are still a ton of similar styles like this, this and this is a beautiful investment for your closet as well.

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

Friday Favorites

T.G.I.F! Short weeks are amazing, aren’t they? It does feel good to be back into a normal “routine” this week, and now I’m so ready for Spring! Ha! However, with as cold as it is right now, I’m enjoying being forced to stay cozy inside with my family.
This weekend we have no plans, and I cannot wait! We actually took our Christmas decorations down last weekend. And, I would normally leave our decorations up through January 6th, but we took them down early, so we could just relax this weekend!

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites!”

ONE
Neutrogena Hydro Lip Treatment

This is the BEST lip treatment for dry, chapped lips. My lips have been so dry with the really cold temperatures we’ve been having lately. I wear mine underneath my lip gloss.

TWO
BaubleBar Tassel Earrings

The happiest pair of earrings that make me think of Spring, and warmer days ahead!

THREE
Zella Twisty Turn Tee

I have one of these tees in a coral color, and I cannot tell you how many times I layer it over workout tops to actually workout in, or just to run errands. I went up a size, simply because in my workout clothes, I like a longer length, and a looser fit.

FOUR
Ellen Tracy Faux Fur Satin Down Coat

I bought this down coat last year (on sale!), and it’s the warmest coat I own! I love it. It also comes in black!

Blushing Navy

Happy New Year! I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season!

We’ve had some pretty cold temperatures here lately, so wearing a dress or even a cute winter skirt isn’t really an option right now (or at least not a warm one!). So, I found these wide leg, wool pants as an alternative in the back of my closet. And, I quickly remembered how much I loved them again for several reasons. Besides keeping my legs warm on a very cold evening out. They’re pink, and there’s nothing I love more than wearing pink & red together. How about you?  It’s so fun & chic at the same time. Now, even though I bought these pants awhile ago at United Colors of Benetton, there are still so many great options like these, these and this pair is a steal. Now, I know that the wider leg is a little bit more dramatic; however, it’s also very flattering when worn with heels, and is another classic alternative to the heavily worn skinny pants we always tend to “go-to” when pinched for time. It’s good to switch things up a bit, don’t you think? I do.

Side note: I have to ask you, since it’s a new year, are you big on making new year’s resolutions? I recently came across this old article, and I think it’s a much better option. I always have high goals set for myself, and of course there’s always a long list of all of the things I want to accomplish, things to do better, etc., but this article talks about a different way to look at resolutions, and I’m on board. How about you?

Happy Wednesday!

Loving Lately

Happy Wednesday, Friends! I wanted to drop in and say “hi!” during the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. I’m really trying to slow down & truly enjoy the “moments of the season.” I hope that you & yours are doing the same as well!
Instead of giving you another “gift guide,” I thought I’d share with you a few things that I’m “loving lately” for a little bit of a lighter post. I don’t know about you, but sometimes reading all of these “gift guide” posts starts to stress me out about all of the things I have left to do on my list. Anyone else feel this way? Of course, we’re all looking for the perfect gifts for our loved ones (and having help is amazing), but sometimes it’s nice to stumble upon that “perfect gift” on our own, and get that really excited feeling knowing that “yes, this is it, they’ll love it.”

Here’s what I’m “loving lately!”

Leslie Odom Jr., Simply Christmas

His album is amazing, so classic & relaxing for Christmas! Download this album, you won’t regret it, trust me!

Mules

These mules are the most comfortable pair of flats that I’ve ever worn. So worth the $24.99! They come in a blush color as well!

 Leopard-print Cup

How happy is this cup? I LOVE coffee/tea, & pretty much always have a cup of coffee in my hand (or one that I’m re-heating multiple times a day), so what better way to make it more fun & girly, right?

Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo

My hair stylist introduced me to this dry shampoo, and oh my, it not only smells heavenly, it works beautifully too!

Hallmark Christmas Movies
I’ve been watching this channel non-stop in the evenings! My poor husband! I literally know what’s going to happen within the first 5 minutes, but I STILL end up watching the entire cheesy movie until the end and even cry, every time! I’ve been watching this movie channel for many, many years. I love feel good movies, especially centered around the magic of Christmas, and I know that I owe my husband a lot of his movie picks after the holidays are over! Poor guy!

Kate Spade 2018 Planner

These planners are great (tons of space available to actually write), and I still write everything down. Old school, I know. I think this is a fun one, even though I actually make a point not to be late. However, if I’m late, it IS probably because I’ve changed my outfit a few too many times. I’ve been guilty of this since the second grade! SO, this might be the planner for next year.

Paper Source Tea Towels

Our oldest is obsessed with puppy dogs, so these “happy howl-iday” tea towels make us pretty darn happy everyday in the kitchen! (I also happen to be pretty obsessed with dogs, too!)

Twilly d’Hermes

I think I have to ask Santa for this for Christmas. In one of my Nordstrom orders, I received a sample of this, and it smells amazing. Even my husband noticed how good it smells, which says something!

Faux Fur Stole

I love the warmth and how chic these faux fur stoles look this time of year!

H&M Turtleneck Sweater

Skinny jeans/pants & an oversized sweater = my winter uniform! So cozy!

Sonix Tortoise iPhone Case

My iPhone case broke a few months ago, so I’ve been on the hunt for a new case, and this one might just fit the bill.

This pretty much sums “me” up. How about you?

Today’s a gift, enjoy it!

Friday Favorites

T.G.I.F!! It’s cold & rainy outside (they’re even calling for a little bit of snow here, crazy!) today. I’ve been busy (who isn’t, right?) with doing all sorts of happy Christmas things for our boys, and I’ve also been trying to finish up some Christmas shopping too. Time is flying by over here. How’s your Christmas shopping coming along?

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you!

ONE
Cathy’s Concepts Monogram Herringbone Throw

A monogram throw is a perfect gift for anyone on your list, especially that “hard to buy” person. Who wouldn’t want to cozy up with this throw & a warm cup of coffee every Saturday? I would.

TWO
Minnetonka Suede Moccasin

My husband gets a new pair of these every year. Such a great buy, again & again! They come in three colors.

THREE
J.Crew Velvet Foldover Clutch

Still have lots of parties on your calendar? This velvet clutch (also comes in a bright red) is the right finishing touch to your holiday outfit. Love the stripe ribbon.

FOUR
J.Crew Merino Wool Cable Pompom Sweater

Classic sweater, under $100 with pompoms? Sold! There are so many outfit options with this one. It also comes in red.

FIVE
J.Crew Sequin Ball Drop Earrings

How fun are these earrings? A fabulous gift for that glitz & glam friend in your life (or for yourself!!)!

And, an extra one, because I always like to end my posts for you with a great quote!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, Friends! We’re in Florida on a mini work/vacation! I hope that you’ve had a wonderful week & are ready for the weekend! Tonight we are attending a Christmas party on the beach! Be sure to follow along on Instagram!

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you!

ONE
Tucker + Tate Pajamas


I love getting the boys matching pajamas, especially for the holidays. The Tucker + Tate brand is so classic. Every season they come out with some really good stuff from clothing to shoes. Get the pajamas early, as the cute ones sell out fast!

TWO
NEST Holiday Candle

These would make such a great gift. The absolute best candles.

THREE
Kate Spade New York Earrings

Oh, Kate…bows & pearls? Such a chic combination.

FOUR
Native Union TAG Charger

This is such a brilliant gift idea for the busy guys in your life. They can attach it to their briefcase or keychain, and they’re never without power when they need it the most!

Cozy Holiday Neutrals

As you already know, there’s nothing I love more than an excuse to get dressed up, especially around the holidays. However, I’m not a big fan of being cold, which is why this sweater is a fantastic mix of classic & cozy. It’s quite perfect in the fact that you can wear it with your favorite jeans (like these, these & these), or you can dress it up, add your go-to pair of heels & voila, you’re party ready, cozy & warm!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

 


I wanted this cape dress to be the official start of the holidays for Fancy Says Have A Ball. When I saw this on J.Crew, a few months ago, I knew I had to buy it, especially since it was on sale at the time. This is a dress that will take you from one Christmas party to the next. It’s great because you don’t have to wear a coat (or in most cases, keep up with one) to a party. It’s a classic sheath dress topped off with a cape & a bow. What could be better you say? I can’t think of anything more chic to take you into the holiday season.
I am a firm believer in giving each holiday “it’s own time;” however, this Town & Country article pretty much validated that it’s never too early to get into the Christmas spirit. Do you agree? Either way, I can’t wait to unbox all of our decorations, start our Christmas shopping & spread holiday cheer & happiness wherever I go. Thank you, Mom & Dad for a wonderful childhood of memories of Christmas (& Thanksgiving).

Happy Monday & Early Thanksgiving, Everyone!

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you!

These should be arriving on our doorstep today! They come in pink & blue as well. These are a complete designer dupe for $31.00! I wear mules all of the time & love them.

TWO
Marigold Artisans Set of 3 Cheese Knives

How pretty are these cheese knives? The gold braid detail is simply gorgeous. These would be beautiful on a cheese plate while hosting this holiday season. They’d make a great hostess gift too!

THREE
J.Crew Tartan Plaid Camisole

J.Crew Tartan Pajama Pants

These pajamas are so happy & festive for the holidays! I love anything in a tartan plaid!
