Pier 1 Storybook Pop-up in Soho!

01 December 2015

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 Imports. All opinions are 100% mine.
Hooray, it's officially December and it's time to kick off the holiday season! First off, has anyone finished and/or started their shopping yet? I'll be honest, we're still deciding on what size tree we want to get so I'm a little behind on my shopping list, which is typical. I'm such a last minute Lucy. 

One of my favorite things about the holidays are all of the festive and colorful decorations. When I was a little girl my we used to drive around the surrounding neighborhoods and catch a glimpse at all of the extravagant Christmas lights and decorations throughout the area, each topping the previous house's decor inside and out. For me, it's how the lights flicker against shining ornaments on an enormous evergreen tree. It's simply beautiful.  

And even now, though we can't go all-out like we used to, now that we're city people and lack the space of all of those gorgeous houses, we definitely make it up with the warmth and coziness of our decor. Which was made even better with the addition of Pier 1 Imports' pop-up catalog, it's like a story in and of itself and a great tool for when it comes to holiday decor shopping. Can I just copy and paste it all into my living room?

 Oh but wait, it gets better. Especially if you're in the New York City area from December 2nd through the 6th. Why? I'll tell you:  Pier 1 is creating their very own life-size installation of their pop-up book that brings to life the best style stories and new traditions of the season! Chapter by chapter, in real life.  

I'll be getting a first hand glimpse of the Pier 1 Pop-Up storybook event tonight, so stay tuned because I'll be sharing it all here.  Or, get yourself to Soho when the unique, one-of-a-kind Pier 1 Pop-Up installation opens to the public on Dec. 2-6 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 503 Broadway, NY, NY. undefined

The $20 Maxi Dress

30 November 2015

Since I've been playing favorites with bohemian, 70's inspired pieces this season I couldn't help but fall in love with this bright, floral maxi dress from H&M. I mean, it's been a minute since I've worn, let alone bought one so I felt like my closet needed one with a little autumn harvest hue. Love the colors. Now, at first glance on the racks I was convinced I was going to be paying upwards of $50 for it but after checking the tag there was no way I wasn't taking this baby home for a whopping $20. I pretty much ran to the dressing room, tried it on and bought it. No regrets. Hopefully I have a few more weeks of wear without piling on the excessive layers. Until then I'm perfectly satisfied with wearing it with all these neutrals.

Trend To Try: High Waisted Flares

25 November 2015

 At this point in the season it's likely that everyone has brought out their favorite pair of jeans at least once, I know I have. But, I'm taking a break from my trusty skinny jeans and giving these high waisted flares from Fashion Nova a shot. Guys, I kind of love them - aside from them being little long {short girl problems}, I'm pretty obsessed. I can't get over how perfect they were paired with this fitted turtleneck, woven belt and cozy layers. You can't wear flares without going a little retro, am I right?

Who else is into flares?

Holiday Glam in 15 Minutes

24 November 2015

This post is sponsored by Target.
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to the holidays, by the time I’m done shopping, cooking, and getting everyone else dressed, I’m pretty much ready to call it a day or at the very least take a nap. Standing in front of the mirror for an hour or more seems like an outlandish task after everything else I have on my plate. However, entertaining or attending a party in sweatpants and a messy bun seems slightly inappropriate.

Which is why I made it a special point to make this week’s Target Beauty post about putting together a glam holiday look without all the crazy effort. Using 4 easy, no fail beauty equations to create the perfect glam look and in under 20 minutes.

Beauty Equations: 

Classic Winged Liner
First, I went for a classic winged liner. It’s simple yet always glamourous. Then, a coat or two of mascara and we’re on to the lips. For The Eyes: e.l.f Must Have Eyeliner Set {black liquid liner} & Pixi Large Lash Mascara in Black

The Red Lip
Red lips during the holidays is a must and pairs perfectly with winged eyes. Lips: Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color in Classic Red

The Messy Bun + Glam Headband
Since we’re short on energy and time, I’m putting my hair up in a teased, messy bun with the addition of a touch of sparkle to tie everything together for one glamorous look. Hair: Scunci Jeweled Headband

Classic Red Nails
As for nails, I stuck with holiday-classic red to match up with my lip color. Do your nails last and then walk out the door to minimize smudges and chips.

Voila! Holiday Glam in 15 minutes.

Fall Essential: Tan Over The Knee Boot

I feel like I've been searching for the perfect tan suede over the knee boots for what seems like months now. I know I have a tendency to be picky but it's been tough narrowing down the right boot for the job. Finally, I set my sights on Report's Lipton boot - they're pretty much exactly what I wanted. A little bit rugged, slightly retro and doesn't have a tight fit along my leg.  They were a little pricier than I wanted to spend, at $170 {they're half off in Black and Burgundy at DSW!},  but I'm hoping I 'pay them off' in my costs per wear for the rest of the season into next year and then some. 

Also, can we talk about how perfect they look paired with this dress and sweater - Fall heaven.
