Choker Trend


Today I am trying out the chocker trend, something I never thought I would do after high school. I remember how popular it was through my junior and senior year, but I definitely did not expect it to come back. 
Have you been trying out chokers? What are your thoughts?

New Year, New Hair

Happy (late) New Years!! I hope you are all having a great New Year, we have spent the last month getting settled into our new house... which is why I have been totally MIA lately. For the most part our house was pretty much move-in-ready (check out my Instagram for updates on our house). There were just some big cosmetic things we wanted to take care, like painting. We painted our living room and all four bedrooms. 

Anyways, on to this look. I am in love with this parka, and I knew I needed to share it with you all, because it's on sale right now for $35! I was a little worried about quality, but I have had absolutely no issues, it's super warm and the zippers all work great. Also, I colored my hair! I just needed a break from blonde, I am really loving the darker color.

What I'm Loving Lately

Recently I went into Bath and Body Works to check out their 3 wick candles and there were a few that I really liked. I'm not a big fan of the sweet smells, like vanilla or cupcake. I prefer fresh scents and now (thanks to one of my good friends) I am starting to like the masculine scents, like Black Tie

This holiday season I have been loving the "lumberjack" print (that's what Bryan calls it), I purchased this wrapping paper and then I saw this adorable coffee mug and I decided to add it to my buffalo plaid collection.

I'm sure I'm not the only who is loving the new Starbucks Holiday cups, but seriously this year they are SO cute! And if you are looking for fun Christmas gift ideas, these holiday travel mugs would be perfect!

Okay, so even though it has been ridiculously cold in Colorado lately, I have secretly sort of been enjoying the chilly temps. When you wake up to a quite, snowy scenery it's absolutely beautiful (as long as I have a hot coffee) and getting to wear cold weather accessories is definitely a plus! 

Here is an earlier photo to show how much this succulent has grown. I love watching the growth and progress of succulents, my mom and I call them our "babies" when we start the propagation process. I recommend reading this blog post if you are interested in growing your own succulents.

Okay, so I have had one Swell water bottle for a while now and I have been wanting another one for a while now, so I could have a clean one if one was dirty. When I saw this rose gold one, I knew it would be my second investment water bottle.

What are your favorite things lately? Have a great weekend!

Bundled for Winter

It is officially feeling like winter here in Colorado, the highest temps yesterday was about 15 degrees! So needless to say, I have been bundling up in hats, scarfs and gloves. This lime beanie from Old Navy is sold out online, but it may be available in stores, this and this one are cute alternatives. If it's cold where you are, stay warm today!!

Furniture Inspiration

I am so excited to move into our new house in a next week, we close this Friday! Lately, I have been eyeing new pieces of furniture and decor to help make our new house feel like home. Below is some of my inspiration....

We have been eyeing sectionals lately and we plan on purchasing one within the next month, I love this one, but I also think one with a chaise would be nice, like this one or this one.

 We bought this table when it was 25% off, but we didn't end up purchasing any dining chairs at the time, so I have been on the hunt for the perfect chairs.

In our old house we had one living room, now we will have two, so we may need a second coffee table, I love this one.
Because we have two living rooms, we are looking for another media center, I like the rustic look of this one.

Chilly go-to Look

Happy Friday! This weekend is going to be a busy one, I am going to a concert and a holiday party, plus we are going to look at carpet samples for our house! Anyways, this look is one of my go-to outfits when it starts to get cold out. And if you are looking for a long cardigan, this one is so incredible soft and cozy, I highly recommend it (it runs large, I got an xs).

Easy Formal Holiday Outfit

Happy Friday Eve! I hope you are having a great week so far. Holiday parties and get togethers are just around the corner, so I wanted to share an outfit idea that is super easy to recreate. If you have a simple black dress in your closet, you can definitely change the look and feel of it with how you incorporate layers. I love taking a few festive pieces, like this ruffled plaid button-up and a pair of red pumps to create a classy holiday look. If you are not a fan of heels, these flats are perfect for the holidays.

Black and White Cozy

First off, was it a struggle going back to work after the long weekend? I feel like Monday's after a long weekend or vacation are not easy! It's finally starting to feel like winter around here! For a while it had been oddly warm in Colorado, so I have been itching to wear winter clothes like my favorite puffer vest (which is on major sale right now!) and cute beanies. I did a little holiday shopping and found this adorable beanie, I love the little faux fur pom pom. Did you stumble upon any holiday finds? We did most of our Christmas shopping online this year, Amazon Prime has been my to-go!

Budget Friendly Workout Clothes

Hey ladies, so a few weeks ago I went into Old Navy to check out their flannels and basic long sleeve tops. I ended up getting completely distracted by all of the cute active wear they had in store. It was all so good, I decided to take a few pictures to share with you all! Below are a few of my favorite pieces. Also, everything is 40% off right now for their Black Friday pre-sale!

I saw this zip-up and it immediately made me think of this one that I have from Lululemon, but it's only a fraction of the price. It even has thumb holes!! Also my phone case is from here.

I think I have an obsession with herringbone prints.

ON has so many t-strap tanks, I have this one in a few colors from summer. This style is adorable too!

Squat goals tank - no longer online, cute similar option 

I have been a big fan of ON's crops and leggings for a while now. I feel like each season the prints and patterns get even better. I love the fit of the high rise leggings and the black pearl is a nice subtle pattern.

If you have been following my blog for a while now, you know I am obsessed with my S'well water bottle (seen here and here). But they are definitely pricey, this is a super cute alternative
Another Lululemon lookalike, it also comes in black.

How cute is this crop top/sports bra!?! - It's only $10!
