Holiday Spirit

Hope you all had a nice, long Thanksgiving weekend! 

This year, I have a truly jam packed holiday schedule! I've had every weekend booked up until New Years for some time now, but you won't find me complaining.. I just love this time of year!

Perfect holiday outfit:
Loving all the gold! 

And a new Christmas dining table centerpiece:

What do you do to get into the Holiday Spirit???!!

Colorful Friday

Happy Colorful Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends! 

I'm hosting a huge party tomorrow night for CWF mom's 60th birthday, so we felt it would be best to do a low-key thanksgiving dinner. It was the perfect time to break out my grandmother's china, Czech crystal, and monogrammed flatware! It's a pretty simple table setting, but I absolutely love it!

 I made the napkins a few weeks ago, at my Nana's!

Love my Kate Spade taper candle holders!

I'm no food blogger, but we had filet mignon, lobster, mashed potatoes, broccoli, sourdough bread, my fave Rombauer Zinfandel and a lovely chocolate cake! Obviously we didn't have traditional thanksgiving food but we just weren't feeling it this year :)

Are you all going shopping today? We went earlier in the week and got an amazing deal on a washer/dryer at BestBuy (and didn't have to deal with the crazies!) 

But I'm all about my favorite stores sales':
25% off store wide at J.Crew, 
25% at Devon Baer with code Friday25,
and all the GWP's at Lilly Pulitzer!

Hope you get some great deals!!!

Bow Pumps

If you have been reading my blog for a while you know I love bows on anything and everything! (I've even been known to bring a hot glue gun to work just to "bow up" my office accessories!) So it should come as no surprise that my favorite holiday shoe is the bow pump! They pair perfectly with tights and a holiday dress and look great at any event- from an office party to a Junior League party! 

Oscar de la Renta // Nine West // Kate Spade // LK Bennett // Kate Spade

My favorites are these fushia beauties! I just couldn't resist the bows AND scallops! 

Which are your favorite bow pumps? XO

OOTD: Lillypalooza

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a super weekend! 

My Lillypalooza dress made an appearance at the office today! I paired it with boots, tights and a blazer.. Perfect fall outfit if you ask me!

Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday! This week sure has flown by! And I can't believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away! 

Anyway, here are a few of my favorite things today:

I love today's casual Friday outfit, well more specifically this pink puffer vest from J.Crew!

Yes, that's a Murfee in "A Little Leg" in there! Such a fun print!

Close up details- Bow bracelet // MK watch 

As you all know I'm obsessed with bows, so you can imagine my love for this cardi from J.Crew:

And I love that our new place is finally coming together! 

A few little details:
Framed my prints, now I just need to hang them!

Picked up a C&A at anthro.. 

And after years of admiring CWF's parents rolled towel rack, we finally got ourselves one on Amazon!

What have been your favorites this week? Happy weekend-ing! XOXO

Veteran's Day Weekend

Happy Wednesday! 

This past weekend I flew down to Arizona to visit my grandparents! They have a busier social calendar than I do, but I was able to squeeze in some time and I am so so glad I did! It was just fabulous!  My trip was filled with lots of dressing up for dinner:

and later a showing of "Guys and Dolls"

Beautiful desert sunset views:

Of course a bit of shopping..
The Lilly Pulitzer store at the nearby Biltmore no less!

And sewing..

I made floral napkins and a coordinating pink tablecloth!

And most importantly lots of family time together!

Hope you all are able to squeeze time in with your grandparents too, because grandparents truly are the best! 

The Look for Less: Black Watch Plaid

Happy Thursday Ladies! 

 The last few months I've had my eye on adding a few classic pieces to my fall/winter coat collection. I first spotted a Black Watch Plaid Blazer at J.Crew Factory but with the hefty price tag I decided to wait on it, and I ended up scoring one at Target for only $35!

And here's my work OOTD with the blazer (pre-meeting):

And post meeting (sans blazer, add a fun necklace):

Have you scored at Target recently? They have loads of great finds!

GOP Printables

I'm having a few friends over to watch the election results roll in, and what's a party (even if its a small one) without a few printables?! I plan on using them for cupcakes and for a pennant banner.  Since I'm actually using these I didn't make any others, but I'd be happy to email ones with different words :) Feel free to use them too!

I downloaded the images but added words/borders much like in this tutorial.

Hope you all get out there and vote! And I'll be praying for a Romney victory!

Weekend Happenings!

Happy Monday Ladies!

I've been super busy and maybe a bit MIA lately, and that's because we moved and I've been redecorating! Really the most exciting part is that I convinced CWF I needed to turn the spare room into my closet/craft room! Seriously it's the best idea I've ever had!!!

A little preview of the shoe storage: 

In another corner of the room is my new monogram tray:

I purchased the gold tray from Pier One ($12) and put a monogram sticker on it! !!! I promise I'll post more closet/craft room pictures soon!

And we also got a new entertainment system for the the family room:
We just put a bunch of random stuff in there for the time being.. excited to fix it up! 

In other news... 
Recently I submitted a few photos to the Lilly website and they are now up! Can you spot them below?

Hope you all have a lovely day!!

OOTD: Plaid Pants

I've always been a fan of printed pants, but these plaid ones are about as far as I would go for the office. Surprisingly they are really easy to style because of all the colors in them! 

Pants: Jcrew factory // Sweater: Jcrew // Top: Elizabeth McKay

Happy Thursday!!
