Tis the Season

One of my favorite thing about the holiday season is all the parties that I'll get to dress up for! A LBD (little black dress) is a definite closet staple around this time of year, and the perfect versatile piece to add a statement necklace or festive clutch.

Gift Ideas for Her

It's officially Christmas Time, y'all! Today I've spent the morning putting up the Christmas tree and getting out all the decor. The holidays are my favorite time of year, everything is always so pretty and cheerful! I'm also starting to look for Christmas presents for everyone on my list, it's definitely a good time to start shopping with all the sales going on right now. Check out some of my favorite picks this year for all the girls on your list!

Happy Thanksgiving! + Black Friday Sales Guide

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are having a great day celebrating with friends and family! I drove back to my home town late last night and have been finishing up cooking Thanksgiving dinner with my mom this morning. While I love Dallas, it's definitely nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle and spend some time with family.

I also want to take the time this Thanksgiving to thank all of ya'll that follow along here at Champagne and City Lights. It's you guys that allow me to continue to post my favorite outfits and pieces and keep this little hobby of mine going and for that I am truly thankful!

Super Easy Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

I feel like Thanksgiving is fall's last big hurrah until next year, which means it's about time to trade in pumpkin spice everything for gingerbread and eggnog! What better way to indulge in the flavor of fall than these adorable (and super easy) pumpkin spice cupcakes this Thanksgiving! 

The Best Holiday Party Dresses


Black Out

Black fall outfit, black turtleneck blanket scarf brown tote bag
This weekend I'm hosting #Friendsgiving, a week from today is Thanksgiving, and I'm already RSVPing to Christmas parties! The holiday season is officially in full swing! This outfit is perfect for running around town picking up Christmas decor and ingredients for my Friendsgiving feast! 

Farmers Market

If there's one fall/winter item I buy way too much of it's scarves, coats and capes, (especially for living in Texas) I seriously cannot get enough of them! Blanket scarves are the perfect (and cozy!) accessory to dress up an oversize sweater or plaid button down.  I love how chic they make an otherwise plain outfit look, and I definitely cannot resist print mixing - like in this outfit! The key is to match a color (like the navy in this scarf and sweater) so the look seems cohesive. 

In Black and White

Leather and plaid fall outfit
It's a miracle! It's actually starting to feel like fall in Texas (in November). I finally get to pull out all my sweaters and scarves because it seems like this indian summer is about to come to and end, just in time for the holidays and a bunch of  fall/winter sales!

I have been basically living in  this tunic since it dropped below 65 because it is just SO comfy. Throwing on a pair of leather leggings and booties was a perfect way to dress it up for #GirlsNightOut this weekend! 

Nordstrom Fall Sale Favorites

Ya'll, I cannot believe it's already November! The holiday season, and my favorite time of year, is right around the corner. I'm trying so hard to wait to pull out all my Christmas decor! This is also the season for sales, and I had just to post some of my favorites from Nordstrom's Fall Sale. Now is a great time to start stocking up on fall and winter essentials, especially before the gift buying frenzy of the holidays, and what better way to plan your holiday wardrobe than with an awesome sale!

Happy Shopping!
