Embroidered Velvet Dress

Chicwish Embroidered Velvet Dress (Similar Here) BaubleBar Feather Earrings
Vince Camuto Boots (Similar Here & Here)

Winter in Austin really only means a few chilly days in December, January, and February mixed in with a little bit of warmth and rain. So really, it's more of an extended Fall...Add this to the list of one of the many reasons why I'm loving life in sunny Austin so far. Plus, any day that I can leave my apartment in January in a dress, tall boots, and SANS tights is always a good day

This embroidered velvet dress featured above is one of my favorites in my closet right now, and pairs perfectly with my go-to heeled boots and flats. I can't begin to tell you how many compliments I receive every time I wear this dress. Unfortunately though, it sold out sooo quickly, but luckily I was able to find an identical one for you to shop here: Michie Embroidered Velvet Dress

Blanket Cape

Chicwish Black Check Blanket Cape | Madewell Top | 
M. Gemi Boots (Similar) | Radley London Bag

Austin has been experiencing a crazy Winter this year. From snow, to really low temperatures for the area, it's been a little out of the ordinary. I thought I was trading New York City cold for sunshine and heat, but it looks like I might have brought a little bit of the East Coast weather back to Texas with me! 

With Austin's cold front happening, I've been bundling up in as many cozy coats, sweaters, and layers as possible. This blanket cape (featured above) is the perfect option for a cold day, and also serves as a blanket in-between car rides or for a trip to the movies! 

I'm such a sucker for a good blanket cape or scarf

L'BRI Skin Care

Since being introduced to L'BRI a few months back, it's completely changed the way my skin feels. This aloe-based beauty brand packs a punch when it comes to providing moisture to my dull winter skin. The natural ingredients in each product are very gentle on my skin, and give it that nice little boost that I need during these cold winter months. 

I'm the biggest fan of their body lotion & body butter combo. (It leaves my skin feeling incredibly silky soft!) And...this gal definitely needs it during this crazy cold-front that Austin is experiencing. I'm definitely keeping these goodies in my arsenal of skin care favs. 

Some of my favorite products from the line include:

1. Their 3-step Skin Care Program
2. Their Anti-Aging Syrums
3. The Body Lotion + Body Butter Combo

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year friends! 

My favorite part of a new year has always been the chance to be able to start fresh with new goals, new dreams, and a clear vision for the months ahead. 

2017 was such an amazing year filled with so many exciting surprises, changes, and adventures. I'm hoping 2018 is just the same! I can't wait to see what this new year has in store, and I'm really looking forward to tackling some of my resolutions for the year. I've listed a few of my favorites for you below! ...

5 Resolutions for the New Year:

1. Read one book every two weeks {alternating between self-improvement, fiction & biography}
2. Home-cooked meals - {meal-prep for the workweek + more dinners at home}
3. Monday-Friday workout routine - {favorite workouts include: yoga, barre, zumba}
4. Morning quiet-time - {daily devotionals first thing in the morning}
5.  Take more trips- {explore the Austin area & surrounding cities, plus plan more adventures for the year ahead}
