Happy New Year! This past year has brought me so many opportunities that I am very grateful for. My biggest accomplishment was starting my blog! I always hesitated to follow through with blogging because of how other people might judge me and honestly, I was not prepared to deal with that. After many of my close friends and family encouraging me, I trusted my instinct and went with what I knew I loved. Since then, I have become a stronger person and have not let anyone get in the way of what I love to do! I have now worked with over 10 companies and have been forunate enough to work with the Rewarstyle program (which is every bloggers dream) And am soo excited to see what 2018 brings me in my blogging career.

Comment below and share something that 2017 brought you! I would love to know!

On to this look! I have always thought peacoats gave a classy touch to any outfit and I loved the way I paired it with these over-the-knee boots. These boots have been a huge trend this past year, and I was so excited to finally get some! I found these on Nordstrom Rack for $35, which is a steal for boots like these. My fave part of these boots are the point toe and heel height not to mention, the taupe color matches everything and even looks adorable with sweater dresses!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! This look was what I wore on Christmas day and I can honestly say, that this is one of my favorite outfits this winter. I have been LOVING the ruffle look lately and was soo excited when I found this sweater. It was around 40 degrees on Christmas day, and I was super impressed how warm and cozy it made me feel all day long. Right now, this sweater is only $29 (originally $65) and comes in grey, green and black! I also have been in love with my new Barrington Gifts bag. I have been wanting one of these for a while now, and seriously love the design I came up with. I was also shocked how decently priced they are for such great quality. This one that I designed was around $180, but some of them go as low as $145. If you are in the market for a customize-able tote that is great quality, tons of room and pockets for all your goodies and fairly priced, I highly recommend checking Barrington Gifts out!

I am VERY excited to share with y’all some big news (the reason why I am shouting “YAY” in one of the pics above! haha!) I recently applied to be  apart of the RewardStyle program…and I was approved! Ahh! If you are a blogger, you know how big of an accomplishment this is! If you do not know what RewardStyle is, it is the largest invitation only monetization platform for influencers and brands. RewardStyle also launched an app for mobile use called LIKETOKNOW.IT (it’s free!), which is a way for you to “like” or “Screenshot” any outfit post on Instagram (From the influencers of RewardStyle) and be able to shop directly from what they have on! Becoming apart of the RewardStyle family is a huge step in my blogging career and will allow me to grow with the love I have for the fashion and beauty world! If you would like to use the LIKETOKNOW.IT app and shop mine and other bloggers style, just download LIKETOKNOW.IT from the app store (or play store) and begin shopping for your next look! I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of the followers I have developed and my friends and family that have supported my blogging dreams the whole way through! It means A LOT!:)

 

Ok, so this cozy look was super simple to throw together and very very warm! This sweater is one of my favorites this winter because of the light, stretchy material and the high neck! The neck detail makes it different from a traditional sweater which is really neat. I love love these boots also. They are SUPER comfy and will definitely keep your feet warm! I love the outdoors-ey vibe that they give, and the neutral colors are stunning. If someone you know likes these type of boots, Sperry is my recommendation for the best kind. Sperry offers tons of color options and they are all made with the cushion, cozy inside.

This super cozy sweater dress is definitely bringing the Christmas spirit to life! Here in Texas, we are still having hotter days and colder nights, but every now and then a much needed cold winter day approaches and I jump at the opportunity to wear my  sweaters…particularly this sweater dress! Sweater dresses have been a huge staple this year and I cannot get enough of them. Beyond how adorable they are, one of my favorite things about this sweater dress is how warm it is. I am soo cozy every time I wear this dress, and it honestly feels like I am just wearing a blanket! I decided to pair this sweater dress with some adorable black wedge booties. I have not loved these type of booties in the past, but they have grown to love them through the years…especially these. Lastly, I want to mention my lip color! I am wearing this shade from Colourpop and LOVE it soo much. This winter I have been drawn to a deep red shade and echo park is just that! Also, this shade by Colourpop is another one that I am loving for this time of year!

Today’s look is based around these gorgeous boyfriend jeans! I have been in the market for some flattering boyfriend jeans for a while now, but have had a lot of trouble finding a pair that fit just right. I had in mind that the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans would be the ones that fit slightly baggy, still have a flattering shape to them and have support in all the right places. These above were seriously meant to be considering the crazy way I came across them. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my aunt had these pair of brand new boyfriend jeans (tags and all) that she was not happy with for herself. As soon as she showed us these jeans and asked if anyone wanted them, my sister, mom and I jumped up and wanted to try them immediately. My mom tried them first and…too tight. Then, my sister was next and…too small. Lastly, I took my turn (which honestly felt like the shoe fitting of Cinderella by this point) and…PERFECT FIT! Crazy right!? What makes these boyfriend jeans perfect, is the slightly loose fit, flattering shape and the support in all of the right places…everything I was looking for! I know how hard it can be to find the right pair of boyfriend jeans (well lets be real, any pair of jeans) so I listed 5 of my personal tips that I like to use when searching for that perfect pair of denim (particularly boyfriend jeans). I hope these tips help and make jean shopping a little easier!

5 TIPS FOR FINDING YOUR PERFECT PAIR OF BOYFRIEND JEANS

  1. Try on lots of different sizes: This might seem like a no brainier, but you may be surprised how different boyfriend jeans fit than your normal boot cut or skinny style. Boyfriend jeans tend to fit bigger from the knee down and more true to size from the thigh area up. This said, grab lots of sizes…you never know what size you will like the best.
  2. The denim wash matters: Trying different shades of boyfriend jeans is actually more important than you might think. Darker denim in my opinion tends to create the illusion of a slimmer look while lighter denim accentuates the legs making them pop! Personally, my favorite type of denim is a darker wash however, these lighter wash jeans really accentuated the length of my legs making me like them more than I would have if they were darker!
  3. Holes or no holes?: I am normally not one to wear lots of holes in my jeans so these are considered a lot of holes for me! Don’t get me wrong I think holes in jeans are super cute and flattering however, I have always found that on me, minimal holes look best. With these jeans, I actually love how the “holey” style looks on me and will consider trying more like these! I have tried on boyfriend jeans with no holes before and honestly did not find them as flattering as these are. Don’t be afraid to jump out of your comfort zone and try a “holey” or “not so holey” look! It might surprise you!
  4. Don’t be afraid to roll them: When I first tried these jeans on, I was honestly not impressed with how they looked until I rolled them. Y’all, it seriously made all the difference. Rolling your denim gives a more casual, feminine feel. Give it a try!
  5. Patience: Patience is key. I have been searching for the right pair of boyfriend jeans for months now and happened to stumble on my favorite pair in the craziest way! Trust me, I know how frustrating it is to try on what seems like 500 pairs of jeans just to tell the dressing room employee that none of them worked and that they have to fold all of those jeans back…lol. Don’t give up, you will find YOUR perfect pair of boyfriend jeans in no time.

 

Hopefully after these 5 tips, you feel more confident in getting dressed and rushing to the store to grab your 500 pairs of boyfriend jeans to try on! Or you have a better idea of what to look for when shopping for them, so after pair number 2, you have yourself the cutest pair boyfriend jeans that you love!

I would love to know if these tips helped you! Let me know in the comments below!

Sweater ~ Denim ~ Booties: Old (similar herehere and here ~ Scarf: Old (similar here) ~ Watch ~ Hat: Old (very similar here) ~ Bag

It is getting close to Christmas and I am soo ready! Christmas is my favorite holiday with gift giving, dessert making (cough* cough* puppy chow), and especially all of those beautiful lights! This Christmas, I am so excited to share with y’all this gorgeous JORD watch that makes for the perfect gift for everyone. JORD watches are very unique in that they are all made entirely of wood! These watches come in many womens or mens styles, different types of wood, and a variety of faces. What I love so much about this watch is the amazing quality and of course the color!! The rose gold details add a perfect classy look that literally matches everything! I now pair this watch with all of my OOTD’S and is definitely a new staple piece to my accessories.

Moving on to this look! I have been loving cheetah print this season and also olive green! (Quick story: I was in H&M and tried on soo many outfits…I ended up with a sweater dress, two sweaters, and a pair of denim. Guess which color three of the four were?? Olive green! I did not even notice until I got home that I bought the same color of all the outfits I tried on). All of this to say that I have been gravitating to olive green this season! haha! Anyway, I loved the look of the two olive green shades against each other and added the cheetah scarf to break it up a little. Also, this floppy hat is seriously the cutest. I have NEVER worn hats…not because I don’t like them, but just because I never thought to try one on! I have definitely been missing what all the rage was about them and wished I had tried them sooner! If you are someone who never thought to wear a floppy hat, go try one on! You will love them! Lastly, the star of the outfit…My JORD watch! EEP! Y’all, like I mentioned above, I am obsessed with this watch and wear it constantly. If you need the perfect gift idea for him, her, or even yourself…This one will be the one you will remember and rave about to all of your friends and family! I promise!
