Can you believe it…it’s here. Like what the?? 2015 why did you leave so soon? But oh well. THE HOLIDAYSSSS HAVE ARRIVEDDDDD!!!! And I am THE gift giving maniac. I love it. I always have. So in the past before I had the blog or youtube I still was the goto to help my friends and family find the perfect gift. Now I can share that with all of you! So throughout the holiday season I’m going to scour the internet and stores and put together some collages of the hottest gifts of 2015…and for all the peeps who are tough to buy for. And since beauty is my strength I’ll start with this one…What to get the Glam Girls! So I’ve got a new tool for you to quickly look at my finds and see where they are from and how much they cost by just hovering your arrow over the items. Then if you click them it takes you exactly where to buy. I’ll also be doing more in depth videos of why I like the things I do and more about them. So YAYYY! I ain’t trying to steal yo thunder santa but you may need to step up your online options…hahahahohohoho!
Yes, it’s a thing now…as is Nashville everything. Like when did our city become the center of the universe? But anyways, with all the fringe, suede, denim and flannel gracing the streets these days I figured it was time to do a post on a Nashville styled outfit. And since I just got back from Dancing With The Stars in LA, I missed my city so I need to give it some love.
Swing that fringe ladies…and gentleman, I ain’t choosy. But really, what is better than a style that melds fashionable with comfortable…like actually comfortable. This is a look for work, a night out, or even a day of holiday travel.
And I love this Railsshirt imparticular because it doesn’t look like all the others. Also, I wear it under a tan sweater when the weather gets cooler.
And what could be better to wear with this simple comfy look than simple fresh makeup? The star of the show is this new gloss I got fromRMS beauty. It’s the perfect nude pink shade and is completely organic. Word on the street is it’s the shade Giselle wears. I’ll take that.
But y’all, for reals…this bag?! I fell over dead when I walked into H Audrey in Nashville and saw the bags of Jennifer Haleyfall down from the heavens. Girl where have you been hiding all our lives? Nothing says Nashville and southern like fringe, and our girl is killing it with the fringe game at the moment. More of her to come.
And these poor little Rag and Bone booties…they’re probably so tired of having their picture taken, but sorry they’re my fall staple…and before I have to squeeze into some dang glitter heels soon for the holidays I’m wearing them on repeat.
So before we all get caught up in the snowmen and turkeys let’s keep it casual. And as we shop and plan and as the excitement of the holidays swells let’s tip our hats to the city where country music was born and where everyone in the entire world is setting up shop. Let’s keep Nashville alive pals.
Black on black on black, it’s no longer reserved for Hot Topic or when you feel 20 lbs overweight…it’s the new frontier. And one I’ve been exploring on repeat. I feel it can transition from an everyday look to a dressy night out. And I always feel fashionable and edgy in all the right ways.
And something else I’ve been going with is mixing up my hat and shoe game with this trend. At first when I adorned my head with this Janessa Leone hat I felt a bit Montgomery Gentry, then I played around with it and fell in love with the larger brim. It made a larger statement. Don’t limit yourself to a floppy brim brown hat for the fall…mix it up. You’ll love it, I know. I get all my hats at my favorite store in all the land, H Audrey, as well as most of my other duds. However, if you aren’t in Nashville click the links to see where you can find them too.
And there has never been a cooler holy shirt. I’ve shown you guys the short sleeved version before, but I love theseIRO shirts so much I have to get all versions. I love the appearance of the holes when everything else is black and covered. I wear these under my vests in the winter too.
But the real star of the show are these leggings. Say hello to my very favorite piece for the fall and winter Spanx Leggings. I had to get them in every color after I tried on a pair. They’re magical. They’re selling out everywhere for good reason, so get them fast. I got a Medium because I don’t like to feel too restricted, but it’s up to you how sucked in you’re willing to be. I got them in camo too and LOVE them. Get those HERE.
Gosh, are you guys just elated for Fall and Winter!?! I know I am! And I’m so excited to show you so much more. And don’t forget to check out my YouTube channel HERE. I’m doing two videos a week and it’s only just begun with all of this online content. Thanks for reading friends. Click the links below if you want to know more about these pieces or buy them for yourself!
Clearly translated into why not? And with the beautiful wine shade and the price of under $70 you get the point. I’m taking a stand today. A stand against wearing the same dang dresses over and over this holiday and wedding season. Let’s all take some risks and some plunges…and for the price of what I’m finding it ain’t even gonna hurt ya.
I mean, this color, let’s talk about this color…So I will admit I have quite the problem with ordering things I like in every color, which is what I did with this one. However, I sent the other one back. It was a little see through and at 20 that would have worked, but at the latter end of that decade, it ain’t working no mo. But this color so is, and since I feel like we’re all fine wines in our ‘older age’ why not rock the color. This one is more purple which I love too.
And what I’m really loving too about this look is how it shows a little skin but is still pretty covering with the long sleeves. I’ve always loved that look. For those of you who want to show off your legs this is a look you’ll want to try.
And the trusty ole Louboutin…yes they’re expensive but I wear mine ALL the time. Any nude pump would work, or also a metallic sandal.
So make a statement for a little of nothing…also don’t forget to grab some double stick tape…you don’t want to make that kind of statement. Just wanted to throw this cute inexpensive look up while I’m working on some way fancy stuff for fall and winter. WOOOO!! Thanks for reading friends! And don’t forget to check out my YOUTUBE!!
What if you fell in love with a dress, bought it in two colors, then it went on sale TWICE a few days later? Then you would be me. My very favorite dress of fall just betrayed me deeply, but hey, more for all of you. I LOVE a long sleeve mini dress. I LOVE this ashy tan mixed with stark white. I LOVE the silk, and the way it makes fall transition weather as smooth as its texture. So pictures speak louder than words right, so take a gander…and grab one fast if you like it. One of the sales ends tomorrow. And just check out the site in general. All of it is 25% off and it’s my favorite go to site. Click HERE to see all the Shopbop splendor!
And lastly I need to tell you something about this WOW tanning mousse that just dropped down from the heavens to me. So I’m featuring it in a youtube video within days but I couldn’t help but spill the beans. I am such a tanner connoisseur. I’ve used them all, and this Loving Tan takes the cake. And you apply it with a mitt in like 3 minutes. It’s like a miracle. Favorite beauty find of 2015!!
So although I’m mad that after buying this in both colors I’m still smiling because at least you guys can benefit from these back to back sales if you so choose! Thanks for reading. To shop this look click the photos below…and don’t forget to check out my new youtube channel HERE!!

Dollars that is. Ok, so much is happening with the launch of my youtube channel! Plus I’ve got travel and bridal and collaborations galore coming up in this month. If you haven’t subscribed yet, check out my videos HERE! So now let’s get back to that $22 thing. So y’all have inspired me to search for bargains and I feel like I’m getting pretty good at it. This dress in this post is $22. Like for real? Now I can spend my life’s savings on shoes and jewels…just kidding. Mostly.
And believe me…this is the only cold shoulder I’ll be giving anyone this fall! I LOVE off the shoulder. And these bell sleeves! And the fact that I could be in a hot dog eating contest wearing this style and no one would ever know because it’s so forgiving! Check check check! So I searched and found my 5 faves in this style, and linked them below for you.
And look at these leaves at my feet!! I mean…who wants to throw a welcome party for the fall with me? I live for this season.
And you know I’m all about those details. Back to my version of basics with the nails and lashes at a 10. I love getting thick glitter shellac on my nails. I swear it stays for a month and a half. And I get it on my toes too! And if you get in really good with your nail peeps they may even fill in the shellac so you can go a little longer. You can only do it with colors like this though because you can see the line with plain colors.
Ok, so here are my favorites I’ve found of this trend…as well as my shoes and necklace.
And check out my youtube videos and let me know what you’d like to see. Thank y’all for reading!
Transitioning is tough. We long for what’s ahead, but want to cling to the past. I for one, battle perfectionism and feeling like something won’t be quite what I thought…or what others thought. But don’t nobody want to see perfect. That’s why I constantly try to be who I am…before I’m all shined up. Like I’ve said before, I can make myself look reeaaalllll good with the help of Kelsey Cherry, some masterful makeup moves and editing…but I look reeaaallll ‘not so good’ before all those magic moves. So to prove that to you I started sharing some before and afters of my own makeup, and I had such an overwhelming response I thought, why not go LIVE with it. Videos!! That’s where I kind of got my start anyways, so why not?! Then of course I thought…wait…I don’t have the right set up, or lighting, or microphone…then I chose to practice what I preach. So here goes. Please subscribe to my youtube channel HERE! I filmed my first video with my friend Alexandrea Garzayesterday and it’s almost ready! Many many more to come. I also started a Pinterest…follow that HERE.
So before I transition into fall fashion, here are two books that changed my life and really helped me overcome my perfectionism and taught me about living wholeheartedly. I recommend them a thousand times over. They are Daring Greatlyand The Gifts of Imperfectionby Brene Brown.
Being comfortable in your own skin is number one, being comfortable in a big sweater comes in somewhere behind that. Here are some of my favorites for fall including one like to mine here…
And you know what’s great about these transition pieces? You can wear them year after year. So yay for transitioning into seasons and new ventures and leaving our self doubt behind to do what we love. Thanks for reading guys and look for the video up very very soon…like hours soon.
