Top 10 Outfits of 2016


I cannot believe this is already the last post of 2016, I know it's cliche to say but this year has seriously flown by! Before we start the new year, it's always nice to reflect on the old - and what better way to do that here than with the best looks of 2016!

Metallic Dress for New Years

I can't believe 2016 is almost over, and what a year it has been! New Years Eve is an especially fun holiday for me because it's all about dressing up in glitzy and sparkle-y outfits and because it's my birthday! To me, NYE is the last big party of the holiday season, and my last chance to wear a fun over-the-top sequin dress for a whole year! 

Christmas Red

Less than a week until the big day, ya'll! Have you finished your Christmas shopping...because I sure haven't! I'll definitely be running around these next few days grabbing some last minute gifts, thank God for online shopping! 

Bright bold red is just one of those colors that screams "festive," especially when it's on a sweet silhouette like this midi skirt. This outfit is classy and conservative enough for Christmas Eve church service and then out to dinner, one of my favorite family traditions!

The holidays are, without a doubt, the most beautiful and magical time of year! It seems like wherever you go is lit up and everything sparkles and shines! This year, it seems the style is extra vibrant - like this burgundy velvet dress that's perfect for holiday parties! Velvet has been such a huge trend this season, and for good reason - the rich sheen of velvet has such a warm and luxurious feel in the colder months. 

Holiday Party Dress with EShakti

Happy Tuesday, ya'll! This year I feel like the holidays are flying by, I seriously cannot believe it's already the middle of December and we only have one more shopping/party weekend until Christmas! 

This dress from EShakti would be the perfect pick for your last round of holiday parties, or even a fun and colorful New Years Eve party dress! I think my favorite part about EShakti is the fact that it comes as a custom garment. For those of us who are petite but can't have everything tailored, this is a total lifesaver. I was able to customize all my measurements so I made sure it fit perfectly when it arrived and I didn't have to worry about finding another dress for my event, because lets face it, last minute party invites mean last minute shopping!

Holiday Gift Guide: For Him


Tied With a Bow

Holiday outfits are my absolute favorite! I love how festive and fun they can be - and the holiday season really makes it ok to play with some fun prints, textures and patterns (think sequin everything?). I love this outfit because it's not only festive but the perfect in-between for those occasions where you want to dress up a little more than usual but it isn't an all out affair. This is definitely a contender in my closet for Christmas Eve church or a holiday office party! 

Pattern Play

Happy December! It's definitely the most wonderful time of the year! This weekend I (stupidly) decided to do a little Christmas shopping and it was absolutely PACKED, but everything is so pretty and festive not even that the insane crowds can get me down.

I've basically been living in some form of this outfit since the temperature dropped. It's such an easy and effortless look, and really comfortable for those days when you're out and about all day!
