Currently Loving

Happy Friday! I am headed to South Carolina today to visit the in-laws for New Years weekend and this has been our tradition to travel there for the past few years. They live outside of the Charleston area so hopefully we will get to sneak in a little shopping and sight seeing this weekend, too! 

Today, I am sharing eight items that I am currently loving. I received a few of these things for Christmas from husband. He was a very smart man and shopping from my Pinterest wishlist! 

Which of my picks is your favorite?!




1. Patagonia Vest | I have wanted a vest like this for so long so I think I'm going to have to finally get one. I have read so many great reviews about the quality so I think it will be a great investment. I'm not a big fan of wearing coats during the winter so I love finding great pieces to layer with to stay warm.

2. Rosebud Salve | I found this salve in my stocking and I love it! I've seen it at Nordstrom and Anthropologie but I have never bought it for myself. This is definitely a new beauty bag must have for me!

3. Leopard Clutch | I gifted this clutch to myself yesterday after wanted it for so long! It's a look for less version and it's less than $40! A leopard clutch is accessory staple that every woman should have!

4. Nail Polish | This Kendra Scott nail polish was also in my stocking! Ever seen I visited the Kendra Scott store a couple of months ago, I have wanted this rose gold polish. I can't wait to do my nails with it!

5. Pink Heels | How gorgeous are these heels?! I have obsessed with all things pink and these heels are no exception! I would dress them up with a little black dress or wear them casually with distressed skinny jeans and a cozy sweater. 

6. Glitter Earrings | My husband also bought me these pretty glitter drop earrings after I mentioned how much I loved them in the store. He was a good listener! I love the sparkle plus they are lightweight and comfortable to wear.

7. Polka Dot Tee | I picked up this tee on Christmas Eve Eve and I couldn't resist the blush + rose gold polka dot combination!  It's only $9 or 2 for $12. I also want the gold splatter tee- it's so cute as well! You can see how I styled it on this page.

8. Cable Cuff | I also own this pretty cuff and it's a steal at $12. It's a great look for less option if you love the style of David Yurman bangles

VIP Experience

Happy Thursday, y'all! The week before Christmas, I had the chance to attend a VIP party at BohoBlu in downtown Greensboro. I have styled some gorgeous BohoBlu pieces on this post and this one! BohoBlu is one of my absolute favorite places to shop, not only because of the beautiful clothing and accessories but the experience. The amazing staff makes you feel so welcome and they are so helpful! They even offer personal styling appointments if you want some extra assistance finding the best style and fit. BohoBlu gives you the personal VIP experience at affordable prices! If you aren't a local girl, you can also shop online but they are available to answer your questions via their website as well.

At the VIP party, I was truly treated as such! Yummy food, drinks, and the most amazing swag bag full of goodies to take home! Inside of my bag I found the beautiful top that I am styling today, a gorgeous swing dress, a cozy blanket scarf, this amazing hand cream, a pretty bracelet, and comfy thermal leggings. I absolutely loved everything! I also had the chance to connect with other BohoBlu VIP, including Samantha from Life and Messy Hair!

I styled this criss cross high low ruffle hem top with leggings, over the knee boots, a neutral bag, and simple accessories. Isn't this top just gorgeous?! I actually do not own anything else in this color so I'm excited to add this greenish blue shade to my closet. Also, y'all know how I feel about ruffle hems. They add the perfect feminine touch to any top and I can't get enough of them! 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Instagram Roundup

Hey y'all and Happy Wednesday! I hope you are either enjoying a super short work week or no work week at all! Thankfully, my job follows the school system schedule and I have a the rest of this week off. I so needed these extra days to relax and catch on all of the things that I have been behind on. Unfortunately, I have also wasted an embarrassing amount of time on the Snapchat filters. They are just too fun! Which one is your current favorite?! I love always loving the puppy and deer.

Today, I am rounding up some recent Instagram post from last week. You can also always shop anything from my Instagram feed by using the SHOP page here on my blog. It's super easy and you don't have to sign up for any kind of e-mails or anything to get the direct links. 

This week's roundup consists of a good mixture of comfort and festivity! I pulled out lots of red + green, plaid, cozy sweatshirts, and leggings last week in preparation for Christmas. This week, I am all about the sparkle as we gear up to celebrate a New Year! 

Have a great day, everyone!

Striped Peplum

Hey there! It took me a minute to figure out exactly what day it was! I think I am suffering from a "holiday hangover." The kind of feeling where the excitement of Christmas is gone, you ate way too much, you're feeling pretty exhausted, and the house is a mess. It's always kind of a sad feeling when Christmas is over. The anticipation seems to last so long but it goes by way too quickly once it's here. My agenda includes cleaning out some toys and getting my house back in order!

Today, I am sharing how I styled this pretty striped peplum top! I wore this outfit to run some last minute errands on Christmas Eve and to bake cookies for Santa with my girls. Yes, I actually wore the heels for most of the baking (they were kind of perfect with my polka dot apron)! This top comes in a several colors and it runs true to size. As I have mentioned before, I cannot pass up black and white stripes or peplum! It's my favorite combination! I styled this peplum top with skinny jeans, a classic pea coat, leopard heels, and my black leather crossbody. This top would also be perfect layered with a cardigan or vest on top as well. I also plan to pair it with black denim and a colorful bag next time.

I hope you all have a wonderful day recovering from the holidays! At least we do have New Years to look forward to this weekend!

Currently Loving

Happy Friday! I think this is an even happier Friday than normal. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! I love Christmastime and I love it even more now than I am a parent. I love seeing the joy and excitement on my daughters' faces! Tonight, we are planning to go out to dinner and then visit festively lit up neighborhoods in the Greensboro area. The girls love driving around, listening to Christmas music, and looking at the pretty lights! 

Today, I am sharing my weekly edition of what I am currently loving. Now that you have shopped for everyone else on your list, it's time to treat yourself! A gift to you from you. Which of my favorites do you love the most?! Read below to find out which item is at the very top of my personal wish list.


1. Leopard Lace Up Flats | I love all things leopard and these flats are no exception! I love the lace up detail and the print is perfect. Gimme these shoes!

2. Knit Poncho | I have a poncho just like this one but from last season and it's one of my favorite winter pieces in my closet! It add the perfect cozy layer and looks great with a striped turtleneck top.

3. Earring Set | Don't these earrings look just like the Kate Spade version?! Well, they are pretty much identical but this set is less than ten dollars for two pairs of pretty earrings! Pink and gold glitter... yes, please! I love a good look for less find!

4. Cowl Neck Sweater | This cozy sweater is so cute! I own a super similar one that I styled yesterday. You can see how I styled it on this page. I love the oversized fit plus it's under $30!

5. Plaid Scarf | I love scarves, especially plaid scarves. I own several scarves in this brand and they are my favorite! The white and black will match almost everything.

6. Rose Gold Bag | Out of all of my favorites this week, this bag is hands down my absolute most favorite item! The rose gold color is amazing and I love the tassel detail. This bag is at the top of my wish list!

7. Blush Sweater | My eyes are just drawn to cozy cable knit sweaters right now! I am loving this pretty blush one that's a steal for about $25. I can't get it into my shopping cart fast enough!

8. Pave Ring | This gorgeous double crossed pave ring is so pretty! It's only $12 and makes a statement. I need to add it to my jewelry box!

Go Do Good

Hey there! I love being able to use this blog as a platform to share about people, organizations, and businesses that are doing good in our world! I think it's super important to highlight the positive and those who are pursuing the mission of loving God and loving people! Today, I am very excited to share Go Rings with you. Go Rings sells gorgeous handmade rings, bracelets, and earrings. A percentage of every sell goes towards making a tangible difference in the world. In November and December, Go Rings is focusing on supporting Cherish Uganda:

Cherish Uganda is an organization actively changing the story of children living with HIV/AIDS in Uganda. They are working to enrich the lives of these children spiritually, physically and educationally. Their newest development,Cherish High School, is the first high school in the world to focus on enrolling and empowering teens with HIV.

Go Rings is supporting Cherish High School by donating 25% of all sales during November and December. These funds pay tuition for HIV- affected teens in Uganda. The cost is $750 per student, which covers housing, meals, supplies, and teachers’ salaries for an entire school year. We’re aiming to send at least 7 students to Cherish High School in 2017!

Go Rings sent me the 14K Gold Go Ring to share and style for y'all. I love the simplicity of the design of this ring and it's also very comfortable to wear. It's so well-made and can be worn in a variety of ways! You can see in the photos below that it can be turned either way for two different looks. You could also size up in your Go Ring to wear on your thumb. It's a classic and versatile piece that you'll want to wear everyday!

You can help Go Rings make a world of difference—ring by ring.

Instagram Roundup

Happy Wednesday! The countdown is Christmas is on! 4 days! With a six year old and four year old in the house, the level of excitement is quite high! They love getting gifts (of course) but more importantly, they are understanding more this year about the true meaning of this season. I'm thrilled to see them excited to serve others and spread joy because that's what it's all about. Love God, love people. We are are all looking forward to time with family and friends, the candlelight service at church, baking cookies for Santa, and getting to slow down for a few days. 

Today, I am sharing a roundup of pictures from my Instagram feed. I have been trying to throw festive pops into my outfits as well as my daughters' outfits. I have just as much fun (if not more) styling my girls! My oldest is already a fashionista and her biggest request to Santa was a pair of high heels. The apple definitely doesn't fall far from the tree.

You can shop my tops, bottoms, accessories, and shoes at the bottom of this post or each photo using the shop page. Let me know if you have any questions about sizing, fit, texture, quality, etc. of any of the items. Have a great day, y'all!
