Perfect Little Black DressYSLLBDBlack PumpsAlexander Wang Circular Jacquard Little Black DressNude ClutchLBDBlack Patent Pumps

Dress: Alexander Wang (also here and similar style here) | Shoes: Jimmy Choo (also here, and similar style herehere and here) | Clutch: YSL (also here and similar style here and here) | Watch: Michele (also here) | Bracelet: old, similar here | Earrings: Giani Bernini (currently on major sale!!)


Happy Monday! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! Sam and I got to enjoy part of the weekend as the only two at home, and I have to say it was so nice! I also made some progress on my holiday shopping. Can you believe that Hanukah starts this week and that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away! Where does the time go?!

Today is all about this perfect little black dress! I was right away drawn to the circular cut out design since it’s so different from all of the other black dresses that I have. It is also really comfortable for such a dressy look. So perfect for holiday parties and any event coming up in the new year.

Here I paired it with classic black pumps and a nude clutch for a timeless look. These pumps are an investment piece but are so worth the price because the quality is amazing and they go with everything! I found some fabulous looking dupes here, here and here. I love how adding the large gold hoop earrings to the outfit made the look pop for the holidays. And the earrings are currently on major sale for under $50!

If you are on the hunt for a perfect black dress for a holiday party, winter wedding, or a soiree I’ve linked some fabulous options below in the scrolling widget.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great start to the new week!

Top: Bailey 44 (also in black and on sale! here) | Jeans: Current Elliott | Heels: Stuart Weitzman (love this similar style for under $100 here and here) | Tote: Louis Vuitton (similar style here, here and here) | Watch: Michele


Happy Tuesday, and first full week of December, loves!! Before I dive into gift guides and all things holiday related, I wanted to share this look that I have been wearing on repeat a lot lately. This Bailey 44 ‘Authoritative’ top is definitely one of my favorites. It is so soft and cozy! And the off the shoulder style is perfectly on trend. It also comes in black. And some very similar styles (that are all just as soft and comfy) here, here and here.

In the fall I love to pair a chic sweatshirt with jeans and nude heels for a laid back look. If you are in a cooler part of the country, a chunky boot or bootie would look just as fab! When I find something that I love, it’s on repeat. And this fall time casual look has definitely been on repeat a lot lately.

I’ve linked some additional sweaters/sweatshirts in the widget below that are all perfect for the end of fall and beginning of winter.

If there are any gift guides you would love to see, specific gifts you want help finding and/or someone certain you would like help shopping for please let me know in the comments below or send me an email. I would love to include them for you in my upcoming gift guides.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a fabulous Tuesday!

Happy Cyber Monday!! I hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving! We had a whirlwind week and weekend. My parents and sisters stayed with us for a week, we hosted both sides of our families for Thanksgiving (our ninth year in a row to host!) and then over the weekend hosted Sam’s first birthday party at our house. I’m so exhausted today!!

I usually avoid the crowds and madness of shopping on Black Friday. And this year I had the added task of prepping and preparing for Sam’s birthday party, so while I was out and about on black Friday I avoided and really did not have time for the malls or big stores. But I really do love me some Cyber Monday Sales!! The sales are so good and every retailer has deals today. Cyber Monday sales are major. So today I want to share some of the best Cyber Monday sales that I have found. There are so many good deals and amazing items on discount today!

See below for the BEST Cyber Monday deals and happy sale shopping!!! 🙂

Happy Wednesday! I hope that you are having a wonderful week so far! Ours was off to a bit of a meh start. Nothing in particular wrong, just some gloominess and a case of the Monday’s. I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is just a week away!! And that also means that my sweet baby boy’s 1st Birthday is just two weeks away!!! We are celebrating his birthday with friends and family a week earlier than his actual birthday, while my family is in town. And per usual, I still have SO much to do! I’m a little overwhelmed organizing, planning and getting prepared for hosting Thanksgiving and Sam’s birthday party back to back. I’m trying to dig down deep and use the same systems that I have in place for clients’ parties in order to conquer hosting my own two parties lol!

Today I want to share this fabulous Misa dress!! I die it is SO fab!! I love how feminine Misa dresses are. And this one does not disappoint! It is the perfect dress for luncheons, date nights and of course makes for the perfect holiday dress! I love metallics, velvet and reds and black. But sometimes there is just something so gorgeous and unexpected about navy, especially this time of year. And this dress seriously makes me want to go dancing every time I put it on.

Here I paired it with neutral shoes and a neutral clutch for a softer look. I plan on wearing it with metallic pumps for an upcoming holiday party. And it would be the perfect Thanksgiving outfit too! Below are some more fab holiday dresses that I am loving. They all make me want to grab the bubbly and toast with friends!

 Hi loves!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I have been on a total cleaning, organizing and purging kick lately. NO, I am not pregnant again lol! But I do think that Sam’s first birthday coming up in a few weeks is a big reason behind the urge to purge. We are entering into the toddler phase and storing and clearing out baby items has also gotten me in the mood, and given me the motivation, to clean closets, cabinets, drawers, etc… too. A few weeks ago I did a major (MAJOR!) closet purge and overhaul in my own closet and it felt SO good!!! I’m hoping to share more on the process, and how I go about doing a complete closet makeover for all of you soon.

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite go-to date night outfits this fall. I literally have been wearing this exact mini skirt and tank every other time Jordan and I get out for a date. I love the ease of a mini skirt and tank for a pulled together date night look. Plus this outfit is so comfortable! The exact skirt that I am wearing is no longer available, but I love this really similar one. I get so much wear out of my T by Alexander Wang basics. They are so comfortable! As soon as fall decides to make it’s way to Dallas, I plan to keep wearing this look with over the knee boots and a jacket.

What are some of your favorite date night outfits?
