Glowing Rose + Giveaway








-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------




Happy Friday!  Isn't this Chicwish skirt gorgeous?  It's even more beautiful in person I really have to say.  Especially from the pictures on Chicwish the skirt almost looks white.  However it's more of a shimmery beige and the the rose flowers just seem to glow (hence the name of the skirt)!  It's completely lovely.  The colors too of the roses is a burgundy and navy/grey color.  It's really just amazing.  Of course my Clare V clutch is in tow, a staple for me with many of my going out styles.  Don't forget that leopard is a neutral and really can be paired with just about any color or pattern.


On to the GIVEAWAY!  Today with Chicwish I'm giving away one lucky reader a beautiful wool blend Chicwish coat with faux leather details (size: Medium). #Love!



The giveaway will be open to US residents, 18 years and older only, beginning today through next Friday, December, 27th.  Enter through the rafflecopter below.

Have a great weekend and good luck!

Instagram Lately



CLICK PICTURE TO GET OUTFIT DETAILS.

Today is a short, somewhat easy post.  I learned that my 100 year old Nana passed away.  Although she was old and we knew the day would come soon, it came a little sooner than we were expecting.  She was also my last living grandparent so it's been a little more difficult.  

But please enjoy some recent Instagram posts.  Follow me here to see more of Instagram, family photos and holiday traditions.

Have a beautiful day.

Happy Monday.  Another weekend has passed and Christmas is a little closer :)  Have you check out the SLS Holiday Gift Guides HERE & HERE?  Find the perfect gifts for just about everyone on your list from your special guy to your best gal and even the little kiddos.

This weekend we spent Saturday with my husband's family.  We decorated gingerbread houses and opened some early Christmas gifts (check out my Instapictures HERE).  Sunday was a day to play catch up, house projects, and getting ready for the week ahead.  

This sweater is an absolute favorite this season.  I'm slowly buying up more cashmere sweaters because my skin is now more sensitive to wool.  This lovely piece from J.Crew is just what I needed (they are all now 30% off!).  The cable knit on the front is just beautiful.  I recently bought these J Brand jeans on a Piperlime sale (Psst... you can see me on their Style Feed HERE!).  I didn't have any dark jeans and I loved that these were cropped (no hemming - yeah!).  Dark jeans are so versatile from wearing them every day to dressing them up with some beautiful heels and a fabulous silk top for a date night out.  How great is this scarf?  I snapped up several for only $17!  Yippee skippee (yes, I just said that...)

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Thank so much for stopping by.

Happy Sunday!  We had a fun filled Saturday decorating gingerbread houses and celebrating Christmas with my husbands family (you can always see more family fun on my Instagram).  Early right?  Well, we will be with my family for 2 weeks and I'm so excited.  I'm thrilled to see some of my best friends, go to my home church, and of course celebrate Christmas with my family.  But first today it's about staying home and gettin' it done!  We have some house projects to finish up, plus getting ready for the last week of school and work for a while.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend and not rushing around too much in the holiday hustle and bustle.
Make it a great day!

Little known fact about me?  I love ice cream.  I'm not talking Breyers or Dairy Queen.  I love the real cream, velvety ice cream.  There's a place we visit during the summer after a great dinner on the grill that has THE best ice cream.  But I don't get any.  What?  No I eat my son's left overs with all the confetti sprinkles at the bottom.  It's best and then I don't gain 10 lbs every time I eat it!  This cute little hat reminds me of all those little sprinkles in the bottom of the bowl.  Colorful and adorable.  These sneaks are just best for all my Christmas shopping and errands.  They run a bit big so I would order a 1/2 size down.  No outfit is complete lately without my Daniel Wellington watch.  It's such a classic and from now until December 31st you can get 15% off with code: holiday_simplylulustyle + free worldwide shipping!

Can you see the snow?  AH!  I love it :)  So excited that it snowed and although it was ccccold during this shoot, the pictures (I think) turned out great.

Well folks, there's just 2 weekends left until Christmas!  I have to admit I'm still working on getting my shopping done.   How about you, are you finished?

Thanks for stopping by, have a beautiful Friday!

JOA fringe top, Loeffler Randall clutch, JCrew leather leggings, Club Monaco heels, Saint Laurent sunglasses

-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------

JOA top via Piperlime (runs large, order down a size or 2!)  ||  J.Crew leather leggings (30% off code: GIVETHIS)  ||  Club Monaco heels (30% off sale price!)  ||  Loeffler Randall clutch (on sale)  ||  Saint Laurent sunnies  ||  J.Crew earrings (30% off code: GIVETHIS)  ||  Elizabeth & James ring  ||  YSL Rouge Pur Couture lips #14



This JOA top came out and I just fell in love with it.  The fringe is so fun and a perfect look for New Years Eve.  Because of the neutral look I wanted to pair it with dark leather leggings for an added edge and evening look.  The pop of the pink bag (or Magenta as Ella says, me... gasp at how perseptive my daughter is...) also adds color and it's on sale!  This bag is great because I can use it for a clutch and a crossbody bag (see HERE).  These heels?  Killer right?  I bought them last spring, but have worn them countless times.  Leopard is such a great texture, pattern, and believe it or not - neutral - to add to almost any outfit.  These are on sale + another 30% off with code: SALEONSALE!

What are you wearing this NYE?  Thanks for stopping by!
