Merry Christmas Eve friends!! It's going to be a lovely 80 degrees here today and I'm hosting xmas eve dinner so it's going to be a day of cleaning and cooking and drinking to avoid actually cleaning and cooking! Hooray for the holidays!! I also wanted to share some fun pics from the day we took our xmas pictures. J is making a rare appearance on the blog and as you can see we got a little goofy as we normally do when we are both in front of the camera. Hope you enjoy the picture we used for our xmas card (the one below) and all the funny outtakes from the day!

Well kids, it's Xmas week, which means I need to wear this amazing plaid poncho basically everyday because once Xmas is over the two or three red clothing items I own go back into hiding in the closet. And if I'm being honest I bought this amazing kensie poncho to match Henri's sweater...because that's the kind of cray cray I am now. J thought that we looked ridiculous being twinsies, but I of course loved it...and I'm sure Henri did too! We also took our Xmas Card pics in these outfits which I'll share later this week and they turned out perfectly!! Happy Monday loves!

You guys Christmas is almost here...and it is in the 80s in SA. I mean come on Mother Nature...work with me here! I have more than half a closet full of sweaters, and boots, and furs, oh my, but I can't really wear them because I will sweat to death. My best solution right now it to wear my sweaters with shorts or skirts and throw on a hat. At least then I get a little bit of winter...at least that's what I'm telling myself.
And this cute little glasses sweater was just quirky enough to be paired with a little bow beret. It lets me channel my inner Parisian...oui oui!

Anyone else feeling a little sparkly today?? Well if you read my post on StyleLushTV then you've already seen this too cute outfit from Apricot Lane, but I love it so much that I wanted to share it again! One of the things I noticed about people in SA is that they love to match. I'm talking like the exact little swirl pattern that is in their top needs to match the necklace they're wearing, which has to match the earrings that they have, which has to match the purse that they're carrying for the night...it's exhausting. And one of the biggest colors that people seem to have a problem with is navy. Like they literally want everything navy, from head to toe...like hi I'm a blueberry...delish!
And since I'm not a huge fan of looking like Violet from Willy Wonka, pairing this amazing navy sequin dress with a black faux leather jacket seemed like the obviously choice. Black and navy are so classic together and you know I love a good mix of edgy and glam in one. And if you are planning on stopping by the "Give Sparkle" Holiday Party at AL tomorrow night, then this dress is so perfect to rock while stuffing your face with cupcakes and champs!!
Also, do you like how I made it extra windy the day I took these pics to give it that rockstar flair. Yep I'm just good like that.

Well kids...this weekend I became another year older...lucky me. Bad news is I'm now 33, which is almost mid 30s, which is basically 40. Good news is I don't look 33, so three cheers to that!! Most of the weekend I spent relaxing which is always nice when you're an old lady like myself. The best part though was taking xmas pics with J and H! I can't wait to show you how they turned out. There are always lots of laughs when J and I take pics together and this time was no exception. Plus Henri and I had matching outfits which J couldn't stop making fun of, but I thought we were too cute! We definitely got a few double takes from people walking by, but you know I love a little extra attention!
And while you'll have to wait a bit longer to see those looks, today I'm sharing another one of my fave holiday looks that was featured on my GFB post for StyleLushTV. I love this flirty skirt with a chunky turtleneck sweater, and black and white is always a win!

Happy December pretties!! It's the most wonderful month of the year! Why you ask...well duh, it's my bday month!! #TeamSagittarius
But this month is also amazing for another reason! I'm so excited to announce the I've been chosen to be one of the Guest Fashion Bloggers for StyleLushTV and my first guest post is up and ready to be loved HERE!!! This is one of the outfits I featured in that post and I'm kinda obsessed with it. Now if you know me in real life then you know I love a good "theme" outfit...and what better time of the year to be holiday-ish than December? The best part about this look is that I'm legit wearing red and green, like find me rudolph and get me a sleigh because it's xmas colors, but by wearing olive and maroon it's more, that's kind of a cool color combo to rock, and I can totes get away with it without looking like one of Santa's elves. Plus no one is really paying any attention to my outfit because this beanie is just the best thing ever...which you already know because I rocked it in my post last week, and you will most likely be seeing much more of it because like I said...best.thing.ever.
