12 Days Of Christmas

This year I teamed up with the adorable Kassi from Truly Lovely for a 12 Days of Christmas gift exchange. I had never done one of these before, but I am so happy I did! They are so much fun to shop for and of course fun to open as well. Here are some snap shots of my sweet gifts from Kassi.

Outfit Post: Chanel Chic

Today was such a lazy day. I woke up late and took my time getting ready while watching the NCIS marathon {one of my favorite shows!}. Here is what I am wearing on this beautiful day.

jeans Love Culture, top Windsor, high tops F21, ILY Couture scarf & bracelet, bag F21, spike bracelet Windsor, cuff Charming Charlie, Michael Kors watch, sunnies Buffalo Exchange

I got these awesome high top sneakers from Forever 21 for Christmas from my parents. I love the cool, casual vibe they give to my outfit. These are not the high-heeled sneakers they are just normal and my parents got them for under $40! LOVE! I hope all of you have a wonderful day and safe night. :)

Outfit Post: Cat Lady

When I saw this awesome cat shirt at Forever 21 I knew it had to come home with me. Three weeks later, when I saw these Chloe look-a-like boots at Forever 21, I knew they had to come home with me as well. I paired both of these pieces with my high-low skirt from Buffalo Exchange and stacked on the bracelets and rings.

skirt Buffalo Exchange, shirt & boots F21, cardigan F21, tights Target, necklace & earrings Francesca's {from my brother and mom}, assorted bracelets: Charming Charlie, Windsor, vintage & F21, Michael Kors watch, F21 bag, Warby Parker glasses

Look how similar these Chloe boots are to the one's I purchased for $40. These bad boy's however run for $1345...yeahh no thanks.

The Ritz Carlton's decor was impeccable and no area was missed. The twinkle of lights and the huge garlands that were in every doorway added to the ambiance. There was also a piano player that played the entire time we had tea. It was definitely a day we won't forget! See you guys tomorrow with an outfit post:)

Outfit Post: Oxblood & Army

The past couple days have been filled with fun Christmas activities and hanging out with family and friends. Last night Jeff and I went to CityScape in downtown Phoenix for some outdoor ice skating. We went with two of our friends Brittney and Jeremy and boy did we have fun! {None of us fell either...yay} After that we went to my {amazing} friend Rea's house for a little party. I love this time of year! Here is what I am wearing today.

Tomorrow we have to finish some last minute shopping, go to a Christmas party at our friends house, have dinner with my family, then go to look at Christmas light's! I am so excited. I will be taking a brief vacation from my blog to celebrate Christmas and be with my family, so I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday and I'll see you after Christmas!

Outfit Post: A Christmas Carol

Tonight my family and I are going to see the Christmas Carol at the Hale Theater. I am so excited! I figured it was the perfect time to wear my sequined blazer. I am pretty much obsessed...I love how there is not one spot that isn't intricately detailed. Everyone should have a pretty and elegant piece like this in their wardrobe. {Especially since I got mine for $24} You can dress it up or down so easily and makes for a conversation starter. Here is how I styled it.

faux leather leggings H&M, t-shirt F21, vintage blazer Meat Market Vintage, necklace F21, Pandora bracelet, Brighton bracelet, ring F21, MadeWithLoveByAlyssa skull & evil eye bracelet, pearl bracelet F21, thrifted clutch, sunnies Buffalo Exchange, heels Sheikh 

What are some of your favorite vintage pieces you've scored recently? Let me know below:) Have a wonderful night!
