Best of 2016

December 28, 2016

It's December 28th! How in the world? My Best of posts are my absolute favorite to pull together (see 2015 and 2014). It may seem a little shallow to have a blog dedicated to my outfits but it's my own personal diary. I can look back at these outfits and remember where I was, what I was doing, and who I was with. It's so nostalgic! Here are the favorites of 2016.

Life Lately

December 26, 2016

Oh my goodness, you guys. I did not intend to take a week and a half off from blogging and it's been stressing me out! I missed a couple posts last week because our flight was delayed and work was crazy and then I missed some more because I realized that I brought the wrong camera cord home so I couldn't post the outfits I shot before we left California. Womp womp. I need to haul myself over to Best Buy and get a new cord because I have some pretty great content to share! Anyway I feel like so much has happened that I wanted to clue you guys in on.


December 14, 2016

I'll admit that I was resistant to the over-the-knee boot trend for, well it's been a couple years now, but it finally grew on me. I could never find a pair that I loved or that were at the right price point until I found these Charles by Charles David pretties. I pulled the trigger on Black Friday and have had fun styling them ever since. I wore this outfit for date night a few weeks ago and other than having to pull them up semi-frequently I love them. I know that's ridiculous but they're fun so I'm willing to put up with a little bit of annoyance. Also, in cold weather climates they can be used to either wear skirts and dresses in the winter or as a second layer over your pants. Win-win!


December 12, 2016

Every night, if I'm not crazy tired, I fill out my question of the day in my five year Q&A book. Last week one of the questions was "Where do you see yourself in a year?" which naturally got me thinking because 2016 is coming to a close. The reason I love this Q&A book is for these exact questions. You fill out your answer every day for five years so you get to see how your responses vary from year to year. When you get these prediction questions it's fun to see where you were right or wrong and how things have changed.


December 9, 2016

I love dressing up, as you have probably figured out by now, but honestly this is what you'll find me in most days. I don't have the energy to put together dressy outfits more than two or three times a week, so I usually fall back on something like this. I have actually worn this exact outfit about four times in the last two weeks! I've posted about this cardigan before, but honestly guys I still can't get enough. It gives me life haha. 

Our Holiday Home

December 7, 2016

Hi friends, happy Wednesday! Just dropping in to share some pictures of our apartment decorated for Christmas. I haven't really shared many pictures of the apartment because I don't consider it "done" and can't decide if it's even worth trying to finish decorating at this point. That's a post for another day, so until then here are some photos of our little Christmas home! 

Holiday Style: Getting the Tree

December 5, 2016

So this was going to be my going to get the Christmas tree outfit, but then we ended up not actually being able to go get the tree when I was hoe over Thanksgiving. Womp womp. Yes, I am one of those people who imagines what I will be wearing for pretty much every life event. Also I feel I should point out that we get our tree from a nursery, it's not like I'd be wearing this out in the woods to chop down a 10 foot fir!

Our Engagement Photos!

December 2, 2016

They're here, they're here! So excited to share our engagement pictures with you guys. I couldn't narrow down my favorites any more so there are a lot but they're just so good. A million thanks to our photographer Kayla Fletcher to made it so fun and made us feel like the most beautiful couple on the planet during our shoot😊 We got super lucky because it had been raining all day and then the sun came out for almost our whole shoot! I will blame our crazy hair on the misty and windy air though😉 We wanted to do our pictures in San Francisco since that's where we got engaged so we chose the Legion of Honor and Baker Beach. Hope you love them as much as we do!
