Winter Layers

IMG_7721 IMG_7769

There's nothing more fun than layering in the colder months! I love being able to pair several different accessories together to create a cute, cozy outfit. I have a lot of freedom in what I can wear around here as well because it never gets all too cold in So Cal... I can sport a dress pretty much anytime of the year.

This adorable silk/cotton blend dress from Bastet Noir was the perfect match for a chilly, Winter day. There is something about 3/4 sleeve dresses that get me so excited- you don't need to wear a sweater, and they have such an elegant look to them. I love the muted colors in this frock as well- it's perfect to pair with bold, dark lips and a pop of color, like this royal blue scarf.

Winter Celebrations

This week my very special friend, Kirsten and I had a joint birthday party to celebrate our 18th. We are only days apart and thought it would be fun to mix things up, and throw a party together! We decided to hold a barn dance complete with contra, swing and line dancing with all of our dearest friends. I thought I would share a few photos from the evening- I managed to snap some quick detail shots of the decor before the party started. Must say- giving up my camera after that to my sister and mother was hard- I get so used to always being the one behind the lens!

In my opinion, no party is complete without a candy bar! Kirsten made bunches of delicious pink cupcakes and we filled some vintage apothecary jars with other sweet goodies. I knew I wanted to have some cute treat bags- I found these mint striped beauties from Kik Chic, as well as an abundance of matching paper straws for the apple cider :) Kik Chic is offering Into the Woods readers free shipping on all orders until December 31st using the code, "Welcome"

Overall, it was an amazing night! I feel so blessed to have so many incredible friends, and could not imagine a better way to celebrate this time of life <3

Painted Blue Roses

Top of the mornin' to you all! I hope you girls are enjoying your pre-thanksgiving day :) Any of you have special plans for tomorrow?

It's was nice to create an outfit with a 1950s style dress- I love incorporating vintage as much as a possibly can, and today seemed like a good day to break out a retro inspired frock. This lovely dress is from Little Miss Baby Blue. One of the greatest things about this dress is that I was able to work alongside shop owner, Hannah, to customize the dresses length (major plus)!
