Chic of the Week


Happy Friday!

Yesterday I cerebrated my 20th BIRTHDAY with some of my friends & let me just say… I feel old. JK. But still, it’s kinda crazy to think about… like TWENTY??!!

All of that intro is to say, I had to have a cool outfit for the party so I pulled out a new piece that I got a few months ago on one of my various late-night online shopping sprees. Thankfully, I chose to go to Forever21 so the damage wasn’t horrible. But still. Did I need the stuff? No.

The velvet bodysuit is from Forever21 in a size small, but I definitely could’ve been better off with an XS. I’ve noticed their bodysuits run pretty big, so I would always size down at least a size. Also, you can’t wear a bra with it… so keep that in mind my ladies…. The denim skirt and shoes are also from Forever21. I got the skirt awhile back, but you can find details on the shoes here. I got the leather jacket as a gift a few years ago when they were really popular, but it’s perfect for throwing over my shoulder for a night out!

Don’t forget to check out my post from Monday that talks about my resolutions for the year 🙂 I’m a week in & so far, so good…

 

Chic of the Week

GUYS!! Christmas is in 2 days!! I’m so excited. My family always has a huge brunch on Christmas morning & then we spend all day opening presents (which I don’t love, but I’m not going to complain because bah-humbug) & then I usually get to spend some time with Jacob & his family & give & receive even more. But even though I love the food & the gifts & the time with family, I also take a step back & remember the true reason for the season: Jesus. Without Him, I wouldn’t be half the woman I am today. I’m not going to get preachy or anything, but He’s pretty awesome, so don’t forget to take time out of all the festivities to count your blessings.

Alright, now for the real reason for this post: my Chic of the Week. The top is a brand called Joe Fresh & I got it a long time ago, but I wear it all the time & I’m telling you now, invest in a white sweater. You’ll wear it all the time. The pants are LC Lauren Conrad (you guys can probably tell by now, but I have like, 3 pairs of pants). But my favorite part of this look is the shoes. I got them last week at Charlotte Russe because I walked past the store & saw they were having a half off sale, & then I saw the boots & had to get them. Even though they are pink, they’re a very versatile color & style. I will link them here, because you need them.

Have a Merry Christmas!!

Happy December!

I’m glad it’s finally considered socially acceptable to watch Christmas movies in front of the tree with hot chocolate because that’s what I’ll be doing all weekend! I have finals next week & should probably study, but I have all of Monday to do that… I’m planning a post for Monday all about how to get through finals week so make sure to check back!

As for my outfit, this is what I wore to Friendsgiving this year. I got the top last year at an end of season sale, but it’s from the LC Lauren Conrad collection. It is so pretty & not too hot, so it’s perfect for this winter!! I paired it with my LC Lauren Conrad jeans & nude booties that I wear with absolutely everything.

P.S. Don’t forget to check out my post from earlier this week where I give a little life update 🙂

Happy Friday!

It’s almost Thanksgiving! Is it just me or has this month gone by super, super fast?? I’m happy though because I am ready for this semester to be over!!

I’ve been kinda sick this week (for the third time this month…) so I’ve been really lazy in my outfits. I pulled this one together kinda quick before going on a study date yesterday. My class was cancelled so I decided to make the most of it! I found a super cute coffee shop right across from where I live. I think I’m about to spend the next few weeks there…

Anyway, for outfit details: I got the sweater a few years back when I was still in high school at an end of winter sale or something. It’s super soft & warm, but not too hot for 80 degree winters haha. I think I got the leggings at Kohls because I love how cheap & comfy they are! And the shoes are from Forever21. I can’t remember if I’ve talked about them yet, but they’re super versatile & easy to slip on as you’re running out the door. But they still look like you tried.

My roomies & I are hosting Friendsgiving today & I’m sooo excited. I love any excuse to have all my favorite people in one place 🙂 It’s our first time cooking a turkey though so wish us luck!!
