NYE Sparkle



Express Dress (old), Primark Oversized Blazer (similar here and here), 
T.J. Maxx Earrings


I can't believe another year has come and gone. I look back at the beginning of 2013, and am still amazed at how much my life has drastically changed in a year. I am so excited to see where this next year leads me. I can't wait for all of the new adventures to come!

I hope everyone has a safe and lovely NYE! I'll see you again in 2014!~

Party Jumpsuit







Express Jumpsuit and Faux Fur Scarf, BCBGeneration Clutch, T.J. Maxx Earrings, 
Juicy Couture Bracelet, Gianni Bini Sandals


I purchased this jumpsuit and faux fur scarf right before Christmas. Express was having 50% off everything in the store up until last week and I took full advantage and snagged a few goodies. I always love a good jumpsuit, and it's definitely a fun take on a New Year's Eve outfit this year compared to a usual dress or skirt. Just add some fun heels, statement earrings, a sparkly clutch, and your ready for the night's festivities!

Happy Christmas Eve!

I can't believe it's already Christmas Eve! I feel as if this year has just flown by so fast. Do you have all of your shopping done? I am almost finished, and am heading out soon to pick up a few last minute presents for the family before tonight! We always open our presents the night of Christmas Eve. My parents are from Guatemala in Central America and they have always done that since they were little, so I have grown up with that as a tradition. We basically celebrate Christmas today haha! My sweet fiance Ben, wasn't used to this last Christmas when we opened presents on Christmas Eve (since they don't do that in the UK), and has already told me that when we have our children he wants us to open presents on Christmas Day (like most people). So I guess we'll have to work through his English traditions and my Guatemalan ones! 

Wishing you a wonderful and lovely Christmas Eve filled with lots of joy!

The Leopard Coat





Express Leopard Coat (similar here, here, and here), H&M top, Forever 21 Jeans, 
Big Buddha Bag, Vince Camuto Boots, Old Navy Beanie (similar)



One of the best winter additions to any wardrobe is a darling leopard coat. I found this one at Express last winter and was absolutely over the moon when I saw it. I had been on the hunt for one for quite a while and I loved that this was a short, more cropped version when I had been seeing only long ones. You can dress this coat up or down depending on the occasion. I wore it with a simple pair of denim skinnies the other day and a plain long sleeve shirt for a casual day of walking around the shops. I can't wait to pair it with a few fancy dresses and skirts, and may even bring it out for New Year.

Dotted Sleeve Dress









Express Dotted Sleeve Dress (actual and similar), and Clutch, Target Heels 
(similar here and here), Bobbie Luxe Earrings (similar)



I first spotted (pun intended) this dress during cyber Monday a few weeks back, and with the busy times that come with the Holidays I simply forgot to order it! Fast forward a few weeks later...I went to do some Christmas shopping with my favorite girls and there it was at our local Express! In my size and everything, so naturally I had to purchase it. I wore this for my birthday dinner with friends on Tuesday night and paired it with my favorite leopard print heels. I absolutely love the fit of this dress, but my favorite part are the adorable dotted mesh raglan sleeves. They currently only have 2 of the dress in blue online, (both in medium) so I would hurry and snag one before they're gone! I would also definitely pop into your nearest Express to see which options they have available for you!

Skull Scarf







Banana Republic Sweater (similar here, and here), Alexander McQueen Scarf 
(here and here),  H&M Leather Leggings, Coach Flats, Michael Kors Bag (similar)



The scarf featured above was one of my favorite purchases from last summer when I went to San Francisco. As soon as I spotted it I knew I had to take it home with me. I, for the most part never really gravitate to anything with skulls (simply because I don't feel that I can pull that specific look off), but I just fell in love with the colors in this scarf. I paired it with a fun gold sweater the other day and my favorite Coach tartan flats for more of a festive look.

Bangles: 1/2/3/4
Earrings: 1/2/3/4
Rings: 1/2/3/4


With the Holidays come fun parties with family and friends, and this Holiday season not only is your choice of attire important, but also the little extras that you add on. I have put together a little list of options for fun statement jewelry that you can pair with your favorite outfits for all of those special occasions you may have this year. Make a statement with a gorgeous Kate Spade NY necklace or darling J.Crew bangle. It's all about the finishing touches.

Birthday Glam









T.J. Maxx Dress (worn as a top), Topshop Skirt, Francesca's Collection Earrings, 
New Look Clutch, BCBGeneration Heels


The skirt featured above is one of my very favorites. I purchased it at Topshop in England right before I came to Texas to visit family, and decided to finally bring it out for a little birthday post! I am so excited to be celebrating another year with my sweet family and friends. I'm turning 25 today and completely don't feel like it! So many wonderful things happened for me while I was 24. Traveling to and living in England, getting engaged to my best friend, spending the summer in Iceland, and now looking forward to making wedding plans and building a life with my sweet man. I can't wait to see what 25 has in store for me.

Birthday Wishlist





My birthday is tomorrow, and I couldn't resist putting together a 'just for fun' little wish list of items that I'm currently lusting over. If only my wallet could agree with me and send a few of these pretty pieces my way. Maybe someday one or two (Or all!) of these things could be in my closet. Oh...a girl can dream!

Little Red Dress







Express Faux Fur Scarf (similar), Dress (similar), and Bag, Steve Madden Heels, 
Macy's Coat (similar here and here)



This Holiday Season, I'm replacing the Little Black Dress with a Little Red Dress. I think every girl needs that go-to red dress to add a little glam to her wardrobe for all of the fun Holiday festivities. I love any excuse to add a fun pop of color to my outfit and have always found that red makes such a lovely statement. Not to mention, it looks perfect on any skin tone and mixes well with so many prints and colors. I finished off my look with one of my favorite pink coats that I purchased a few years back.
