Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve

Sunday, December 21, 2014

What I'm Wearing: 
Vest: Old Navy (Similar) Sweater: Asos Necklace: Beau and Stella Bracelet: Loren Hope Designs Boots: Nine West (On sale!)

On my nails: Julep Love

This is probably one of my favorite outfits for a warmer winter day. It's comfortable, easy, and still adorable. It's all about the little details here. I absolutely love navy and pink together, but the elbow patch on the sweater just adds a delightful surprise when you turn around. I absolutely adore my Loren Hope bracelet. I always get so many compliments when I wear it. I'm just dying to build my collection and create a Loren Hope stack look. I've looked for a necklace like this for years and couldn't find one. I often see little discs with the constellations punched out but that wasn't what I was looking for. Then I found Beau and Stella and was immediately obsessed. I'll take one of each constellation please!

I cut my hair a little shorter than normal...what do you guys think?

Main Street at Christmas

Thursday, December 11, 2014

On December 7 I went to the recreation of Norman Rockwell's Main Street painting in Stockbridge, MA. They close down a section of the street and park a lot of antique cars along the way. There are carolers and Santa riding a firetruck as well as elves walking around chatting with children about Christmas. They have events all weekend long to help get you in the holiday spirit. Please excuse my big puffy coat, it was absolutely freezing.
