Face the Flare

Okay girls, if you ever learned anything from this blog, I hope it's that a 50 mm lens is life, and is so worth the investment. We arrived on location for this shoot yesterday just to realize that my 50 mm lens was left in my other camera bag at home (cry)! So we worked with my 18-55 this go around, and man can you tell a difference. I definitely miss my 1.4 aperture, that's for sure!

I've been waiting a long time to feature this lovely blue flare skirt from Romwe (similar). I love how unique this piece is - the top layer is made from a sheer textured fabric and drapes over a deep, blue, satin under skirt. This skirt is super fun to wear for casual occasions, or you could easily dress it up for a party.

So I am just dying over this ruby talisman ring from Uncommon Goods. How gorgeous is this? I've never seen anything quite like it, which rings true for most of the pieces from Uncommon Goods. I've never had a harder time choosing an item to feature. Everything is stunningly gorgeous and individual - definitely a must check-out! Every time I wear this ring I get loads of compliments. In addition to their gorgeous jewelry, Uncommon Goods also offers a variety of gifts for every occasion from Valentines Day to Anniversaries.

Of course, I can't forget to mention my latest jewelry obsession. This adorable necklace is from Onecklace. It's a 24 karat, little stunner, and I am in love with it's simplicity and the fact that it matches everything I wear. I quite nearly wear it every day. These make the best gifts, seriously!

Fancy Shmancy

One of my favorite things about New Year's Eve is getting all gussied up. I've never been one to shy away from an opportunity to wear a fancy dress and a pair of heels. Can you believe I found this dress for only $4 at Ross? 

I love these shoes but sadly they literally kill my feet and the stiletto heel is so thin that it's near impossible to walk on. Nevertheless, they look cute and beauty is pain so...

Year in Review // 2015

Well, 2015 has finally drawn to a close. It's been a roller coaster, no doubt, but it's been a year full of laughter, love and adventure. I've finally been able to grow out my hair, which makes me happier than I am able to verbally express (okay, well maybe that's a tad dramatic,) work with some incredible companies, and even live in Virginia while attending college. I had the opportunity to meet ModCloth's founder Susan and even her beloved little pug, Winston. That picture of me in the navy blue and white dress? ModCloth designed that collection inspired from outfit uploads from me and a few other gals in their style gallery! Not gonna lie though, out of all of these photo shoots, the last one is definitely my fave ;)

What are some of your New Year's resolutions? 2016 is almost here, and I can't wait to see what adventures it brings!
