3 Ways to Wear Tights, Pt. 1

Hey peeps! As I type this I'm sitting on an airplane about to fly out to Alabama to spend Thanksgiving with my family! I miss them like crazy since they moved across the country at the end of the Summer, so, I'm pretty excited!! We're also going to spend some time in Florida on the beach, so you know I'm looking forward to that! I don't care if we get there and it's too cold to get in the water, I'm pretending it's summer! Haha. Now onto this chilly outfit post.. The wind was bitter cold when we took these photos! You guys, I'm not ready for Winter! I probably won't be able to wear tights like these for much longer but I'm enjoying them while I can! Nomorerack sent me a whole pack of different patterned ones and I've loved styling them. I think they definitely helped winterize this Summer dress that's one of my favorites so I can wear it just a little longer! Watch for 2 more posts with some more fun tights & have an amazing Thanksgiving tomorrow wherever you are! :)

Bree Lena Holiday Collection + Giveaway!

Can we all agree that every single one of these sequin pieces is AMAZING?! They're all part of the super talented Bree Lena's new Holiday line and I was lucky enough to get to model one in this gorgeous shoot filled with some of my favorite blogger girls (again! pinch me!!) Really it was more of a party than a shoot ;) Bree is seriously one of the sweetest people I've ever met and also an (obviously) incredible designer and seamstress! I want every single one of these pieces. I loved this two-toned boxy sequin top. I kept it simple with a leather skirt and then changed into some velvet leggings for the group shots but you could totally dress it up even more too! It would be perfect for New Years!
 
Definitely enter the giveaway below for a $100 credit to her shop, you don't want to miss out on this one!! And if you decide you have to have one of her designs make sure and order it by Dec. 1st to have it for the Holidays!! I mean, could there be a more perfect occasion to wear one of these?! Oh, and I should mention you can totally customize your order with tons of color and fabric options(!!)

Winter Greenhouse

Photography: Kali Poulsen
Hair: Kaity Myers (my cute & talented little sis!)

So, last weekend I got to be part of the most amazing shoot. It was seriously one of my very favorites to date! My cute friend Stevi made these gorgeous floral crowns and rounded up a dream team to shoot in this beautiful greenhouse full of poinsettias. The models were some of my favorite blogger friends, Chic Style Boutique provided us with cozy sweaters and we had an amazing team of hair and makeup artists including my own talented sister! We had so much fun getting all made up and picking out our crowns and even more fun talking and laughing...a lot. There's not a better photo shoot to be a part of than one filled with friends and girls you love! And Kali did an incredible job capturing it all. I can't wait to see the group pics!! Be expecting those in the near future!
Have an amazing Friday, I love you all!

Fresh Flowers & Fallen Leaves

I've been trying to save these photos until it's closer to Christmas, since even though they're very Fall-looking, we took them for our Christmas cards. I'm not sharing the actual photos with my cute Hubby quite yet, but I couldn't wait any longer to share what I wore! Let's face it, Lori Romney is incredible. Like, if I could have her take my photos every day, I definitely would. I've been meaning to shoot with her for forever, but girl is busy!! I'm giddy-happy with how our photos came out and I can't wait to share! Also, the girls at Sheer Rose were amazingly generous and made me a fresh floral crown just for this shoot! It was seriously gorgeous! I wanted to wear it all day. There's nothing like wearing fresh flowers in your hair to make you feel pretty and romantic ;)

The Walls Have Eyes

So.. the other day I spotted this amazing wall art and thought what I always think.. "this would be an awesome spot for blog pictures!" So yesterday I grabbed the camera and my Hubby on my lunch break and made it happen! Sometimes I wish I lived in the city so I could find more cool spots like this. Oh, and this outfit is kind of the perfect mix of comfy/casual with a fun heel to make it look like I put in some effort ;) I've probably worn this look at least 3 times now... Shhh! I'm definitely feeling a beanie phase coming on with this freezing weather we've been having lately! You guys, I don't know if I can do another Utah winter... Two more weeks and I get a break from it! We're visiting my parents in Alabama for Thanksgiving and making the trip from there to Florida to sit on the beach! Crossing my fingers the weather is good but if it's not I'll still be on that beach in my bikini, dang it! I don't get to be near the ocean near enough. Anyone else have fun Thanksgiving plans? It'll be here before we know it!

You guys!! Over the weekend I got the BEST opportunity EVER. I got to model for my favorite jewelry company, Fifth & Mae with two of my favorite girls!! My bestie Jody and our beautiful, talented friend Stevi! We had WAY too much fun and I'm amazed Roxana got so many good shots between our craziness and laughter! (The last shot shows a tiny glimpse of that). I just love these girls!! My amazing sister also drove to Salt Lake to style my hair for me and even let me borrow her hat for a few shots! Gotta love having a stylish hairstylist for a little sis :) Afterwards we all went to breakfast and laughed some more.. best ever way to start my Saturday! Make sure to check out Fifth & Mae for the lookbook and tons of amazing jewels! Happy Wednesday!!
