70s vibes.

| bodysuit: threadsence | skirt: zara | shoes: steve madden | sunnies: similar |

I have been on the hunt for affordable OTK boots similar to the Stuart Wietzman 'Highland' boots.
I had been searching for awhile and when I spotted these Steve Madden ones I knew that they were it.
Lord & Taylor had a great sale a few weeks back so I had to scoop them as a birthday gift to myself.

For my birthday last weekend, I knew I wanted to wear the boots and wanted to pair them with this awesome lace up bodysuit.  To finish off the outfit I knew I had to wear my a-line mini and my circled sunglasses to perfect this ultra 70's inspired look.

styling notes: I also love wearing my OTK boots with jeans

new age.

It is crazy to think that another year has come and gone.
Would you think I was crazy to say that I feel as though I have been 28 for awhile now?

For me, my 27th year held a lot of unexpected turns; good and bad.
Not that I am much of a life planner, but this year has come to a close in a very different way than I would have expected from last November. 

Even though things have concluded in an unexpected way, I am excited for the future and all the fun adventures ahead of me.

And how can I not be excited when I have had all of these lovely ladies in my life for so long!?

camel coat.

| jacket: c/o shein (under $35!!) | turtleneck: j.crew | denim: current elliott via ifchic
| otk boots: steve madden "gorgeous" | bag: tory burch |

When I recieved this jacket in the mail last week I thought :
"Ahh! What a great coat! Too bad it is too warm to wear right now since the weather has been so warm!"
Well guys, my bubble has been popped and it is a freezing (literally) in the mornings now.
I am still in denial that December(& my birthday) are quickly approaching.
I am a little reluctant to acclimate to these chilly temps, however chic coats, like this one from SheIn, do help ease the transition.
SheIn offers tons of affordable fashionable pieces (like this jacket worn here).
The sizes do vary from piece to piece so READ THE MEASUREMENTS
My trick on ensuring I picked the right size with no measuring tape?
Grabbed my best fitting blazer (mine is from J.Crew) found the sites measurements for the size I own & compared the measurements.

not so basic lbd.

| lipstick: nars "bette" |

I attended a sorority sisters wedding a few weekends ago in this knockout gown by Jill Jill Stuart. Besides having the best time celebrating their union I  felt like a million bucks in this dress.
After wearing a Jill Jill Stuart dress here I knew I wanted to go with another for this wedding and this dress did not disappoint.
The plunging neckline and material made this dress a showstopper.
I cannot recommend this dress enough for any of you ladies that have events this winter/nye.
