Distressed Knit Sweater

Happy Thursday! Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays! Sorry it's been awhile since my last post. My schedule has been way off and trying to find time to edit all my photos and spend time with family was a little crazy. Everyone ready for the New Year? I cannot wait for 2017! A new year equals a new start with new goals. What are some of your new year's resolutions? Let me know in the comment section!

Now on to the outfit! I have been sweater crazy this season and bought quite a few from Express including the one above. It seems they sold out of the color I'm wearing but still have the Charcoal Gray left which I also bought. The best part is that it is 50% off right now! I love the distressed effect of this sweater and it is so soft. I'm also a big fan of the high/low which I have mentioned before. I slipped on a thin turtleneck underneath to keep me extra warm and the fleece jacket came in handy for later in the evening. Here is another similar sweater with the same distressed look.

Twist Back Sweater

Hey there guys! It is offically less than a week until Christmas!! Finishing up my shopping this week. Anyone else still have shopping left to do? Today's post I will make short and sweet as it is a busy week and I am literally trying to keep my eyes tired! 

I am on a major sweater kick this season and already have a list of more to buy! lol  This sweater I got from Express. I love the detail on the back where it twists. It shows some skin in the back but the front is totally covered! Love it! It is currenly on sale for under $30!!! In fact, it is 50% off everything from now through December 26. (Exclusions apply) I also had bought this sweater too. You can never have enough black sweaters. :)  Hurry, before they are sold out!!!

OTK Boots

Hey All! Only one more weekend until Christmas is here! Yay!!! I will miss the Christmas music though once the holiday is over. Ha! Anyone else obsessed with Christmas music like I am? I love it! These next few weeks are going to be busy ones. I have been trying to finish last minute Christmas shopping this week and probably will go into the beginning of next week. I had my work holiday party last night. Tonight I have to make a dessert for my friends Christmas party this weekend. Nonstop I tell ya!!! 

So on to these gorgeous OTK boots from DSW! Obviously this is a big trend as these boots have been everywhere! I was dying for a pair and finally decided to go with the black ones. I have been eyeing up the burgundy ones too! The black for me is very useful as it goes with a lot of my wardrobe since I do own a lot of black. What?? I am a New Yorker! LOL I love the ties in the back and how these boots can transform an outfit. They can go with anything--jeans, skirts, dresses! I wore them last weekend with a black turtleneck and gold sequined skirt and it looked awesome! I am telling you, if  you haven't bought a pair yet, go now! I don't think you'll regret it!! :)

Light Blue + Grey

Hi all!! Everyone ready for the weekend?! So glad it's Friday. Today's post is once again about my favorite store Bevello. I got this cozy sweater and jeans from there a few weeks back. I was dying to get a pair of grey jeans and finally found ones I liked. The white jacket I'm wearing is also from Bevello. I bought it last year and guess's still available!!!  They have such great stuff there, can you not tell?! The sweater is super soft and even thought it says light blue in the description, to me it looks more like a light grey. I love the high/low me it never gets old. I paired it with these distressed jeans from Paige that I absoultely love. The black crossbody and booties from DSW give it a little more edge while the white jacket keeps it refreshed.

I find so many things here at such great prices. Right now there is free shipping on everything!! AND for a limited time there is Buy 1 Get 1 50% off on all scarves, hats, and gloves!!

Arista Equestrian Vest

My uncle's Peterbilt--had to throw this in--love this pic!

Hello girls! Hope this week is going well for you all! We are winding down to Christmas and I still have shopping left to do. Ahhhh! Anyone else still trying to figure out what to get people? 

So a few weeks ago I went to the Equine Affaire in MA with my mom and aunt. They have always been into horses (my aunt has six right now!) and go to this event every year. I have gone the past three years and it's a lot of fun. I took after my dad where I'm more into cars and trucks, but I still think horses are beautiful and can appreciate them. My family did teach me how to ride when I was little but I am horribly allergic to them and well just not really into it. So now that you have a little history....on to the vest. I saw this at the event and fell in love with the emerald green color, gold hardware, and how it's fitted. It comes in two other colors.
