The Embroidered Trend Continues

  The embroidered trend continues into Spring and I can’t say I’m mad about it.  This has to be one of my favorite fashion trends in awhile that I could wear every day. I remember when I was younger my mother use to sew embroidered ribbon to my pant’s legs to make them appear longer. I grew out of clothes so fast, this was an easy …

Hiking from Boca de Tomatlan to Las Animas – Day 2

Before going to Puerto Vallarta I did a lot of searching to find activities to do outside the city. Puerto Vallarta is definitely a resort city full of retirees, so finding something low key was pretty hard. I found a good bit of reviews and posts about a hike from Boca to Animas. Mostly, all the post were from 2014 and not the most up …

Velvet blazer

Zara always has some major sale going on and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to not get this blazer. I’ve been wanting a velvet blazer for some time, however, blazers are so hard to find that fit properly and aren’t over expensive! I took a chance and bought this one since it was under half the price it was original. And I love it! I …

Boyfriend coat

When I shared this look on Instagram, it received great feedback. So, I wanted to share it here where you can shop the look below.   When I first saw it online I wasn’t too sure I would like it. I have such a love/hate relationship with anything boyfriend fit. I actually came back two days later to give it a try and I’m glad …

Cardigan weather

  As the weather gets warmer (then drops again) I cannot help to think of all the winter weather we did not have this year. I am such a fan of winter and upset I did not wear all of my winter coats to their fullest this year. Pretty soon I am going to be packing up all my winter clothes to make room for …

The great winter storm

coffee is always a must on snow days! We don’t have many snow storms in the south, so when Colin and I found out we were going to have one we had to go to the mountains. We left Friday after work and drove to the cabin. It didn’t start snowing until we were 20 minutes away and it really started to come down. There …

Here’s to 2017!!

After looking through pictures from 2016, i’ve realized all the things I forgot happen during the year. I found myself saying “that was this year?!?” multiple times.  Besides all the unfortunate events that happen this year, I found 2016 to be one of my most successful. Even though I created my blog at the end of 2015, I became more engaged and decided to stick …

Christmas 2016

I cannot believe Christmas has passed already! This year Colin and I spent Christmas morning in Charleston with his family. Colin’s family is huge compared to mine, so it can be a bit hectic at times. However, I always enjoy getting together with his family, it’s like a small reunion because they all live allover and are very different from each other. The first night …

Rose Gold Christmas

  This is my first year being able to really decorate for Christmas. Last year, we had a tree in our apartment but that’s about it! This year we don’t live in a small apartment and have room to decorate. I went with a rose gold silver theme, since our tree was mostly silver from last year and I didn’t want to buy all new …
