All About the Lace Up








Sweater: Dottie Couture (Similar here and here)| Denim: AG Jeans| Boots: Vince Camuto (Similar here and here)| Handbag: Street Level|

Good morning ladies and happy Wednesday!! Lace up tops were on my radar last year, and it looks as though that’ll continue into 2017! I love this sweater from Dottie Couture, it’s so soft and warm and I love the lace up and bell sleeve details. This particular sweater is sold out, but they have many sweaters that are similar at amazing price points, I linked a few that are similar to this one. Be sure to check them out!

I paired it with some dark denim and my go to over the knee Vince Camuto boots. I have been wearing these boots non stop, they’re super comfortable and can be worn with so many different colors. I love this look for a day out with the girls or a casual date night with the hubby!

Who watched the Bachelor on Monday night?! (Yes I’m one of those Bachelor groupies!) I always dread when Monday rolls around, so knowing that the Bachelor will be on and I can pop open a bottle of wine makes it a little less dreadful! So far I’m liking both Danielle’s and I can definitely think of a few right off the top of my head that need to go home! Who are some of your favorite ladies so far? Comment below!




P.S. I Love JORD



Happy Monday!! I hope everyone’s first week of the new year started off with a bang! I feel like I finally got my life back in order from all the holidays and travel, consisting of lots and lots of unpacking, laundry and cleaning. It’s hard to believe that we’re already a week into January, I guess that means it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day gifts! I always have a hard time buying gifts for my husband, I just think the guys have it so much easier than us girls. I know you ladies would agree, we pretty much always have plenty on our wish lists!

My husband and I met 12 years ago while we were both still in college, so we have spent many Valentine’s Days together. Over the years it’s gotten harder to think of gifts that are special/unique and that I know he will love; so when Jord reached out to me and asked if I would share one of their beautiful time pieces I definitely did not hesitate!

When I spotted this watch, I knew that this would be the perfect gift and that he would love the color and style. He had been looking for a brown watch that he could wear when he’s at his work meetings and on the road, but couldn’t find anything that he really loved. This particular style is made of natural zebrawood and dark sandalwood; the quality is incredible, and can we just please talk about the face on this beauty! It really is so unique, I haven’t seen any other watch like it. It also came in the nicest wooden case with a drawer on the bottom that pulls out for extra storage.

Now that I’ve let you guys in on a great gift idea for your special someone, I have some more great news to share! Jord is doing a giveaway and everyone (yes I said everyone!) who enters will get a $25 dollar e gift code and one lucky winner will be eligible to win a $100 e gift code! The contest will run until 1/22/17 and the code is good until 4/31/17.

Christmas in the Desert



Sweater: Missguided (Similar here)| Pants: AG Jeans (On sale!)| Heels: Steve Madden (Also on sale!)| Handbag: YSL| Choker: Nordstrom | Earrings: Lulus

Nothing screams Christmas more than a red sweater and velvet pants. My sister got into town yesterday, so naturally we decided to do some blog posts. We have always loved doing hair and makeup, picking out outfits and taking photos. With Christmas around the corner we went for a holiday inspired look!

This slouchy sweater is one of my faves, it can be worn slightly off one shoulder and I love the v in the back. This one from Missguided is currently sold out, but they have a ton of similar styles and Lulu’s has an almost identical one; all at great price points! These velvet pants from AG are perfect for the holiday season and are also super flattering. We paired them with a pair of classic black pumps and chain handbag for the ultimate holiday look.

The rest of my family is coming in at the end of the week, and I can’t wait to spend some quality time together. We haven’t all been together for a family vaca in a while, so I’m definitely looking forward to us all being together! We’re spending Christmas here in Las Vegas and then heading out to Arizona for New Years. What are your plans for the holidays?



Christmas Gift Guide

I can not believe that Christmas is this weekend! I finally feel like I’m slightly ready, the house is looking pretty holiday ready. This year my family decided to do Christmas out here in Vegas, it’ll be the first holiday I’m hosting so I wanted everything to be perfect! The last couple of months have been crazy busy with lots of traveling around, so of course I’ve been running around last minute trying to get everything together.

I always feel like I’m throwing things together last minute, especially when it comes to gift buying. It’s definitely something that I need to work on so I don’t stress myself out so much! For those of you who are still searching for some last minute gift ideas, I rounded up some of my favorite items.

1. Angel by Thierry Mugler

This is one of my favorite perfumes! I’ve been wearing it for a while now, and I always get a ton of compliments.




2. Pottery Barn Faux Fur Robe

This robe is seriously my favorite! It’s so soft and warm, I love it especially for the winter months. (It’s on sale right now too!)


3. Street Level Reversible Tote

I ordered this at the beginning of the year and it has been my go to all year long. It’s perfect for traveling and for the girl that loves to carry just about everything in her bag! It’s reversible and you can’t beat the price.


4. Living Proof Dry Shampoo

You guys have heard me talk about this dry shampoo in the past, but it really is such a great product. It was definitely on my Christmas list this year!


5. Mac Cosmetics Holiday Set

Every year I fall in love with Mac’s holiday gift sets! I’m obsessed with their products and they have the cutest makeup bags that come along with the set. (Right now this gift set is an additional 25% off!)


6. Restoration Hardware Faux Fur Blanket

My parents bought us this blanket a few Christmas’s ago and it is amazing! I use it all the time and it looks so chic sitting on our couch.



7. Fresh Skincare Gift Set

Fresh skincare has been one of my favorite skincare lines and this value set has a great variety of their different products, the perfect way to try everything.


8. Sonix Phone Case

Sonix has some of the cutest phone cases, this Rose all day case is my fave!


9. Michael Kors Watch

My Michael Kors watch is one I wear all of the time, this one is currently on sale!



10. Kate Spade Portable Charger

I’m always on my phone causing the battery to die so quickly. Having an external battery has really saved me, especially while I’m traveling.



I hope this guide helped give you a little gift inspiration! I’m off to finish my Christmas shopping, anbody else still have shopping to do??



Trending: Skirt + OTK Boots

It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Las Vegas!  I had been back in Cleveland for Thanksgiving, and in the past week and a half the temps definitely cooled down quite a bit. It was a crazy weekend of unpacking, laundry, getting Christmas decorations up and opening packages (aka Black Friday purchases!) It was really bothering me that I hadn’t gotten our tree up or started decorating yet, so as soon as I got home I put myself to work. Although it’s not completely done yet, I got a good start and hope to finish this week so I can share it with you guys!

Recently I’ve been on the hunt for a cute skirt that I could pair with some over the knee boots. So when I came across this one, I knew I had to have it in my closet! I love the belt and button detailing, it adds just a little bit of flair. A turtleneck is a great staple to have in your wardrobe, and this one is so warm and soft; I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of it. Thank you to StyleWe for the collaboration!

Who else is excited for the start of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this week?? It’s one of my favorites, I don’t know if it’s because I used to live in Los Angeles, or I just love Lisa Vanderpump’s dog Giggy! (He’s seriously the cutest little guy!) Who else is hooked?



Moto Jacket + OTK Boots





Jacket: Blank NYC| Tank: Old (similar here)| Jeans: Frame| Boots: Sam Edelman (similar here and here)| Choker: Nordstrom

Good morning! I hope everybody had a great holiday and enjoyed lots of Thanksgiving food and Black Friday deals! I spent the weekend with family and friends, eating lots of cheesy potatoes and shopping. It’s always so nice to just chill out and be with the people you love most, but now it’s time to start getting things ready for Christmas and hit the gym!

With the temps finally dropping I have been wearing this jacket non stop. I ordered it during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale back in August and have been saving it for the cooler weather. It has quickly become one of my favorites, I may just have to snag it in another color! I love the moto style, and I didn’t have any suede jackets, so this added a little bit of variety to my closet.

I always love wearing an over the knee boot to add a little bit of edge to an outfit. I bought these Sam Edelman boots last year at DSW, but I just ordered another pair by Vince Camuto from Nordstrom this past weekend that were on sale; I can’t wait to get them!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s full go time on the Christmas decorating! I have some decorations bought, but I need more. What are some of your favorite stores to shop at for Christmas decorations?



Missguided Waterfall Duster


I had to throw this one! Seriously look at this sunset!

Monday you always come around so quickly! I hope everybody had a great weekend, mine was pretty relaxing other than unpacking and laundry from my trip to Napa last week. It was so beautiful there and I got to experience a few new wineries that I hadn’t been to yet. I plan on doing a post this week on some of my favorite wineries to hit while you’re in Napa!

I got an email a few weeks back from Missguided and this duster jacket was featured in it. From that point on I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so yes with me having lack of control when I want to buy something, I ordered it! I loved the longer length and I knew this beautiful nude color was one I would get a lot of use out of.

Not only does it come in a few other colors, but the price point is amazing! The material is super soft and quite warmer than what I expected. It does run on the larger side, but I stuck with my original sizing to achieve the oversized look that is intended.

I hope everybody has a great start to their week! I started shopping for some new Christimas decorations and it’s getting me in the holiday spirit! Has anybody started decorating yet?
