Blush Holiday Dresses

Can you believe there is only 20 days until Christmas!? So crazy. I know they say the older you get the faster and crazier the years go & they weren’t kidding. Like everyone I’m sure, these next few weeks are jam packed full of events for us and a few of them I get to get all dolled up for in cocktail attire for which is always fun to have an excuse to do. Today I’m sharing two holiday party dresses perfect for any  Christmas & NYE events you have coming up.

Faux Fur Jacket & Dainty Layering Necklaces

It’s crazy to think that two years ago I don’t think I owned one dainty necklace and now that’s pretty much all my collection consists of. Don’t worry, I haven’t let go of all my fashion statement pieces but for now they mostly stay tucked away and are typically only pulled out for parties and events. Faux fur has allllwaaayys been in my DNA, I think I owned my first one by age 5 and I’ve never looked back. I’m obsessed with them all: faux fur, sherpa, fancy or casual.

Holiday Living Room Decor

Tis’ the season y’all!! I was so very excited to get most of my holiday decor up over the weekend. With the house flood in September which left us with a gutted interior I was only able to decorate my front porch for fall so needless to say I was very much itching to pull out all our Christmas decor. Our kitchen is still not complete so I mainly focused on the living room. I still want to add some touches of fresh garland (I used my faux garland or now) along the mantle, doorways, and make wreaths for the windows. I just realized this post also serves as a living room remodel reveal too since I haven’t posted on it yet since we’ve gotten everything updated. The walls are still very bare because I’m waiting to hang anything until we get our new sectional (should be this week) which I am SO EXCITED about! I’ll have to do another post maybe after the holidays when the Christmas decor gets put up and the space is in its normal state. ANYWAYS, let’s get on to the holiday decor shall we!

Closet Room Update {Pax Wardrobe}

One positive thing about this flood remodel is it has given me the push to finally just do the things I’ve always wanted to do when it comes to organization and decorating. Being forced to clean out and get rid of all the junk I was hoarding was something I needed.  I ended up repainting my closet room ‘white dogwood’ by Sherwin Williams and convince Erick that I needed the Pax wardrobe system from IKEA.  With this new wardrobe I was able to eliminate the gold bookcase/shelves you’ll see in my ‘before’ pics below and all of the walnut wood stained shoe shelves I had too. I’m actually going to cut the long shoe shelves I had in half and paint them white and they will go on the wall where the gold clothing rack is now. Whatever shoes don’t fit I will just keep in the closet.

Palm Leaf Southern Charm OOTD Inspo

So, I’m a big bravo channel fan, always have been and always will be. it’s not even a guilty pleasure, there is no guilt from this girl, ha! i can tell you anything you want to know about any of the real housewives franchises, Jeff Lewis’s flipping out, shah’s of sunset, below deck, and the show that inspired this look, southern charm. i have been watching southern charm since it first aired in 2014 and i just love following the cast’s lives and watching them grow up {even though they’re in they’re mostly in their 30’s & 40’s} in their cute and charming town of Charleston, South Carolina. I find Charleston to be so dreamy with it’s pastel colored historical buildings and gorgeous landscapes. It’s definitely on my list for a vacation spot in the near future. Are any of you big Southern Charm or bravo fan’s? I’m slightly obsessed and also can I just say, so thankful for social media so that I can insta stalk Cam {she’s my fav} even during the off season. She’s seriously so hilarious, real, and relatable . If you aren’t following her on insta, go do it now!

Anyways, the new season of Southern Charm just started last month and watching the cast in this cute coastal town has inspired my spring/summer look I’m sharing with y’all today.

Tiered Ruffles & Pearl Embellishment

We’ve all been there, the Timehop photo’s from half a decade ago popping up and bringing back nostalgic emotions of wherever you were and what ever stage in life you were, the friends you surrounded yourself with, and the memories made. Then after the nostalgia starts to simmer you abruptly think to yourself, ‘what in the world was I wearing!?’ oh, is Just me? gosh I hope not, ha! I have a pretty certain feeling that in five or so more years I’ll be looking back at these big ruffle sleeved sweaters I’m obsessed with right now and embellished pearl booties and think the exact same thing. But 2023 fashion police Leah can take a back seat for now because I’m going to live it up in these current trends and hopefully not regret it too much. 😉

A Year in Review + Blush Velour Jumpsuit

hi friends, happy 2018 to you all!

i posted this pretty blush velour jumpsuit on my instagram page a few weeks ago and i’m so sorry it’s taken me this long to do a full post on all the details. i love that jumpsuits are so on trend right now as this was the perfect piece to wear to a holiday party without having to freeze my legs off in a dress or skirt. i know the holidays are over but a jumpsuit would also be perfect for any banquets or weddings you have coming up this winter and even more perfect for a dressy valentine’s date night look next month.

with it being a new year, a fresh start, a clean slate – whatever you want to call it. i wanted to reflect on 2017 and share some of my new resolutions/goals for 2018 in today’s post as well. i know, i know, it’s a very cliché thing to do and it’s something that doesn’t and honestly shouldn’t have to wait until january 1st to sit down and do. even so, I’m still pretty into it and enjoy setting new goals to better myself & lifestyle. can we also address how satisfying it was that the first day of the new year was on a monday this year? so lovely.
