Floral Affair.

FLORALAFFAIR1

This pretty little flowy floral dress was the right item to make me feel pretty. Who says you can’t wear floral print during the holidays? The key to that is to add fun details to make it have a “festive” feel. Instead of over-the-knee boots, I opted for a cool pair of metallic oxfords for an unexpected touch. A cozy beanie added that fall/wintery vibe too!

So many flowy dresses to choose from during the holidays so I make sure to stick to brands that I love like Free People at Nordstrom. From high end bags to more inexpensive ones, or from accessories to home goods, I know I can always rely on nordstrom to find exactly what I’m looking for.

I love this dress and already have3 other ways I can wear it: long cardigan and over-the-knee boots, denim jacket paired with all-star converse high top in black,  or a fedora hat and suede brown booties! So versatile!

Don’t be afraid to mix things up by adding some metallic- it gives it that extra pop!

Stripes, floral and studs? yes please!

These metallic shoes are so different for me, but I loved that I got out of my comfort zone  for this purchase!

Future Heirlooms

lovegold7cover

This time of year we all think about what special gifts we want to get for our loved ones. I always put in a lot of time and heart into what I get everyone. I want my gifts to be meaningful and something that will be kept forever. I tend to go with pieces of jewelry that really represent the person I am getting it for.

Gold jewelry is something that people hang on to and hold close to their heart. There is just something behind a piece of beautiful jewelry that means so much more than a pair of shoes or a piece of art. I always try to get timeless pieces of jewelry that can be kept forever and eventually passed down to loved ones as #FutureHeirlooms

This year my gift theme is gold rings. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from Love Gold. I also snuck in this amazing LoveGold Magpie Necklace! #LoveGoldLive #LoveGold

A personal heirloom of mine is my Hortense Gold and Diamond Necklace. A few years ago my mom gifted this necklace to me and my sisters for Christmas. It is something that we all wear everyday to be a little way for us all to be together. We look at it as a sign of our friendship, love, and sisterhood. We are all incredibly busy, so this is a good way to remind us all of our roots and our love for each other. This is a piece of jewelry that we will always have and will eventually pass down to our children to keep them connected. These sort of gifts are the ones that are the most memorable and special.

Free Girl.

I love that the weather in LA dropped drastically because now that means I can finally wear big, cozy, oversized cardigans, wrap my neck with scarves and wear all types of boots.

I’ve been on the hunt for oversized cardigans like this amazing chunky Free People one I picked up at Nordstrom to get me through the fall and holiday season. Since the weather in LA doesn’t really require us to wear big coats/jackets because it’s not that cold (thank goodness!!), having the right turtle neck sweaters and oversized cardigans is definitely key to stay warm. I love that I can find so many options and brands I love like Free People at Nordstrom to help with all my fashion needs.

A one-stop shop to pick up all my favorite brands is important to me because one thing I don’t have is time. Having everything I’m looking for and love under one umbrella is a life & time saver!

Are you guys all about big oversized cardigans? If so, how do you style them? Share!

Thank you Nordstrom for this sponsored post. My opinion, writing and styling are my own.

I love the oversized cardi paired with the over-the-knee-boots. It gives it such a eye-catching look!

Wrap around a scarf a bunch of times for a cozier look.

Tuck in your tee so that it looks a bit more polished plus so that proportions balance off each other.

Such staple boots! Never been too much of a over-the-knee fan, but these were too good to be passed up. They’re beyond comfortable and they look great with dresses/skirts! They come in various colors which makes it fun!
