What To Wear: Christmas

Hello Fashionistas!

Christmas is 12 days away! Guess who hasn't bought any gifts yet?? THIS GIRL! I shop better under pressure anyway. So this Christmas for me will be a special one so I feel like I need something special to wear. Living in Louisiana makes it impossible to plan what to wear for christmas. This morning it was 32 but will warm up to the mid 60s and this weekend has 70s in the forecast! So do I wear a cute sweater, jeans and boots or do I wear a dress plus or minus the tights? So until the day gets closer I will not buy anything. But I will be glad to show you my options.

(I love Francescas! They can do no wrong in my eyes.)

Local Boutique
(I can't pull of leather looking leggings.)

So what do you plan on wearing on Christmas day?

Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Helloo Fashionistas!
I hope you all survived Black Friday! My Black Friday was boring. I only went to Hobby Lobby and I didn't buy anything! Why you ask? Oh I was broke! Why can't Black Friday be after finals when I have sold my books back and have some extra cash!! You know what is worst than Black Friday? Cyber Monday! At least I can avoid looking at sales on Black Friday but on Cyber Monday my inbox gets flooded! Of the 41 emails only 2 were non cyber Monday deals. Oh well! Look out next black Friday! I will have a big girl job!!

High Five for Friday

Hello Fashionistas!

I got a special request for a High Five for Friday post from my #1 reader. Hi Ashley!! So since its been awhile I'm going to expand this to beyond just this week.

1) Halloween was our 4 year anniversary. Its been a long journey but I wouldn't want it to be with anyone else! I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us.

2) How cute is this guy?? 

3) This AWESOME dress I bought at Francescas for our anniversary dinner. I love the bows on the back.

4) We have had some "cold" days that made wearing boots appropriate.

5) HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHLEY! You are the greatest sister every. I have learned so much from you. I am so lucky to have you as my sister and my bestfriend. Even though you wont be moving with me to NOLA I know you will be there with my in my heart and constantly blowing up my phone with text messages! I love you.

Wish List

Heyy Lovelies!

We had a few cold days here in Louisiana! It was so exciting. This instantly made me want to buy more winter items. Note: I LOVE winter clothes. I have more winter items than summer items. So here are a few things I want to add to my closet.

JustFab (Sold Out)
It seems that everywhere I find some like these online they are sold out!! HELP me find them.

Francesca's is my favorite.

Home is Where the Heart is

Hello Lovelies!

Halloween is my boyfriend and I's 4 year anniversary. He lives in New Orleans and I'm still in school in Lafayette so i'm stuck here. I've spent 95% of the last four years going back and forth to NOLA. While I have moved a few times since we have been dating he has stayed in the same place. I even have plans of moving there in August. So this weekend we ran into different places while running errands that all asked the question "Are y'all from here?" my response was always "he is". After breakfast Sunday morning, we went for a drive through the French Quarter. Guy out of nowhere says "you know this weekend 3 different people have asked us if we are from here and you have always replied he is, that kind of upsets me." When I asked him why that upset him he said that I spend more time in NOLA then Lafayette and that I've been there for 4 years. So that got me thinking. He is right, I do spend more time there and it feels more like home than this place does. I've always known that I would move to NOLA once I was finished with school. My boyfriend is there and so is my dog. So if home is really where the heart is well then I am proud to say that New Orleans is my home! More specifically the building on the right is home.

*** I've also added some ways to follow me with fancy buttons!

What I Wore

Dress: Gift Necklace: F21 

I wore this dress for a night out at the new L'Auberge casino in Baton Rouge.It was a great time minus the fact that I lost all the money that I was given to gamble with but Guy kept reminding me that the money was given to me to gamble with and it wasn't my money that I lost. I just kept thinking yeah but I could've pocketed it and bought a really nice purse with it. Oh well! I also can't wait until the temperatures drop a little so I can wear this dress with these boots:
How cute will that outfit be? HURRY UP FALL!!!

High Five For Friday

 Hello Fashionistas!

School has been keeping me insanely busy these past few weeks.

1) This guy running down the drive way when you pull up screaming NANNY and rapping his cubby little arms around you. BEST FEELING EVER! 

2) My always supportive sister! I love her and don't know what I would do without her.

3) Finding out that I will graduate at the end of Summer 2013. WOOOHOOOO

4) My chicken spaghetti! It was my second time making it and I'm proud that I made it on my own.

5) Little Miss Killian Leigh decided to make her debut on Wednesday. 

Its hard to focus on the bad stuff that happened this week (tire blow out & someone smashed my car mirror) when so many good things have happened. For more High Five For Friday moments check out Lauren's Blog!

You fill out a style profile and the stylist pulls together 3 clothing items and 2 accessories and ship them to you! SO you get 5 pieces for $49! You cant buy that in stores. There are no late fees if you choose to keep your items for more than a month! The items you will see are made by Le Tote. So they have a wide variety to choose from. So what are you waiting for? Click the link and join! LE Tote



August is half way over which means classes start Monday and my birthday is Tuesday! I'm also proud of myself for making it this far into August and not chopping off my hair. I usually spend a year growing out my hair to cut it off in August when I can't take the heat anymore. Pinterest makes me want to chop it off and keep it long all at the same time. Oh that little devil. I know once the first drop in temperature happens I will be grateful to have my long hair to keep my ears warm. Speaking of cold and pinterest! I am 34 pins into my fall/winter board and its giving me tons of inspiration for the clothes I currently own. (ALWAYS A PLUS!) So today I thought I would leave you with some cold weather inspiration for my pinterest board!

Fall Favorites

Hello Fashionistas!

I am so ready for fall! The other day I spent 30 mins curling my hair to just have it destroyed by the humidity in 2 seconds. FAIL. So lately i've been online shopping and wishing for fall and pinning Halloween items on pinterest. One of the things i'm excited about for fall are these super cute sweaters from Old Navy they have heart, stripes and polka dot ones. J. Crew also has similar ones but i'm on an Old Navy budget. So here is a look I put together all from Old Navy!

These pieces are very versatile and can be worn so many different ways! Not to mention the red, white and black would be perfect for a UL game!

Back To School Style

Hello Fashionistas!

Load up on  notebooks, paper, & pens! Its that time of the year again BACK TO SCHOOL! I always look forward to getting new school supplies. I also love getting a new backpack! Its a constant battle of getting a cute backpack and one that can hold tons of stuff that I may need. So I complied a list of super cute backpacks and durable backpacks that are also cute!

My top choices for cute backpacks are Target and ModCloth! What are your favorites?

Look For Less

Hey fashionistas!

Have you ever played the InStyle Instant Stylist game? Ok, maybe i'm the only dork that has played it. Oh well. So if you haven't played it before it gives you a complete look and you get to add the "right" accessory they think completes the outfit. Sometimes I don't agree with the answer but thats just me. These outfits are SUPER CUTE but most pieces are no where near my budget. So I've decided to share an outfit and compare them to a cheaper version.

Instyle Version

Necklaces $44 & $52
Ring $42
Dress $365
Clutch $365 Raoui
Sandals $230
Total: $1,098.00

Look for Less

Dress $12.95
Shoes $48.99
Necklace $7.80
Ring $5.80
Clutch $16.47
Total $92.01

What do you think of the two versions?
