#OOTN – New Years Eve

Can you believe it’s 2017 already?!  Though I hate that my little man is quickly becoming a toddler before my eyes, I love the start of a new year!  It’s as if you get a clean slate – a fresh start at love, friendship, personal growth, not to mention new fashion trends & outfit options!

The last few years we’ve hosted a NYE get together at our house.  It’s become tradition to do fondue & create fun martinis.  Though it’s just a small get together with close friends & family, I love any opportunity to get dressed up!  I was hoping to wear a new LBD by Tory Burch that my husband surprised me with, but I had to exchange sizes & am still waiting for the new size to arrive.  Rather, I put together a sparkly number that, believe or not, I found at Forever 21.

I have never been one to wear a body suit, but I have to admit I am kind of a fan.  It was the perfect style to pair with this long pencil skirt!  I originally tried it on with my high rise jeans which I loved, so I may be rocking that look soon too.

By the way, doesn’t my girlfriend look super chic in her Louboutin pumps and LBD from Stitch Fix!?  Major style goals!

#OOTD – Flirty & Feminine

It was one of those mornings where the stars aligned…my toddler was in a fantastic mood & we just so happened to be running errands near the mall.  What’s a girl to do but stop in & do some quick shopping!

I can’t remember the last time I shopped at Forever21.  It’s a store I frequented often in college, but being that I’m 31 I just never think of it as an option.  However, something about their window display caught my eye so we popped in.  To my surprise, I found some fantastic pieces that are not only super stylish but decent quality.

I am completely obsessed with this lace crop top & floral midi skirt.  Two pieces I wouldn’t be quick to pair together, but something about it just works!

And, pairing this lace top with sleek black leggings isn’t too bad either!  All I need to complete this look is high-heeled ankle booties & this grey faux leather moto jacket.
