Sale Alert! I'll Take All Colors Please!

So Many Colors, So Many Choices

I’ve been obsessed with my fringe lace up heels lately–I find myself wanting to wear my blush colored pair with everything! This weekend, Macy’s is having an amazing sale–meaning, I’m contemplating buying every color. Ha! I wish! However, I am debating on adding additional colors to my collection.

  1. Mellow Yellow: This delicious color would make any outfit of the day pop!
  2. Neutrally Amazing: This is the current color I’ve been rockin’–it’s a must, and they go with everything!
  3. Purple Power: I’m actually not finding this color on the Macy’s or Steve Madden websites, but you’re in luck… I found them here!
  4. Classic Black: Enough said, these beauties are classic and oh so necessary.
  5. Red Hot: This color is so amazing–I got to wear these beauties at my last Elle Lain photo shoot–they’re amazing!

Keepin’ It Festive, Casual & Cozy For the Holidays

Keepin’ It Festive, Casual & Cozy…

Mom life and teacher life is always crazy, which unfortunately means we get a late start on our holiday festivities and shopping. However, with it being the holidays and all, of course you know this mama must be rollin’ in style.

This past weekend kicked off the first of our Christmas break. Thankfully my husband and I are both teachers, so we get the same vacation–meaning we’re able to be super productive in a short time.

First stop… McKinney, Texas.

This chic and adorable little town allows me to find affordable, yet unique gifts. I also get to antique shop, which my husband just loves (insert sarcasm). On this stop, I kept it festive!

This festive poncho (originally from Urban Outfitters) is by far my favorite piece for the holidays! Click here and here for two similar looks.
I paired my casual overalls with this super chic pussy bow blouse, just like I did in the fall.This look wouldn’t be complete without a knit pom pom beanie.
My rustic decorative sled I just had to have! I was inspired by the amazing Pearls and Petunias.  My husband is such a great sport! Ha! Thank goodness he’s always down for a photo opportunity. Click here for a similar hooded vest, and here for his plaid flannel.
Click here for my Sassy Pop’s “Be Bold” Old Navy graphic tee and here for her hat.
Also check out Tayteebear’s similar Old Navy boots, and patchwork denim.

Next Stop… Trade Days!

On the next stop, I kept it a bit more casual at trade days, sort of an antique flea market… I switched out my festive poncho and formal pussy bow blouse for my casual military cargo jacket and black turtleneck.

How cool is this lumber jack hat?
I’ve had this awesome jacket since I graduated from college, but click here and here for a similar military cargo jacket.  These Target rain boots are amazing, but unfortunately they’re long gone… but check these boots out! Pretty darn close!
Love this hat  This look minus the jacket… <3

Last Stop… Enjoy Christmas Lights with the Fam!

On our last stop we took a family walk enjoying all of the festive Christmas lights. We also drove through a strip of choreographed dancing lights. Love this time of year.

Everyone must have a cozy puff coat–see a similar one here.
Love this faux fur pom pom beanie!

Jam packed day… but so worth it when you get to enjoy it all with family.

Wishing you all festive, casual, and cozy holidays!

Shop My Fall Bootie-licious Wishlist

Peep toe bootiesNo, I promise I’m not into the whole Kim Kardashian bootie trend–I’m talkin’ ankle boots! I have always been obsessed with boots–which is why fall and winter are my favorite seasons.  I’m not sure what it is about them, but I honestly feel just a little bit more comfortable and chic in a full covered boot.

I have finally found my one stop shoe Tan bootiesshop–Lulu*s. is an affiliate of mine that has such an amazing collection of shoes. I used to hate shopping for shoes because I had to look everywhere to get the look I wanted. Now I have one source that is guaranteed to have everything I need. I can literally find shoes for every occasion and at every price range.

The Any Occasion Dress by Elle Lain

By now I’m sure my followers know that I’m all about adaptability. My outfits must be super chic, yet super adaptable in that, I can wear it for multiple occasions.
Today’s dress is an Elle Lain masterpiece. Pop up shop owner, Lauren Williams, has done it again by selecting the perfect any occasion dress–the Navy Gala Dress. This navy blue beauty is simple, elegant, chic, yet bold. My absolute favorite thing about… It has pockets! For some reason, I am a sucker for dresses with pockets.
So let’s brainstorm here… You may be thinking, “Where would I wear this dress?” Well, the holidays are just around the corner. I’m talking fancy Thanksgiving and Christmas parties. This dress would be the perfect no brainer party dress.
What about meeting the girls for a fancy brunch? Bridal showers, baby showers… Well here you go! Tone this dress down by adding bright and fun heels.Attending a wedding? Or better yet, in a wedding? This dress would serve as a classic guest dress, however, it’s also formal enough for the bridesmaids. Speaking of bridesmaids, your girl, and this navy number, will be making an appearance as a bridesmaid in Washington! Yay Jo! <3

Again, this dress is a must for every formal occasion and every girly girl!So what do you think? I think it’s a no brainer!
Starting today, Elle Lain is online! Check out more of Lauren’s amazing pieces! <3 <3 <3
Enjoy feeling beautiful!

The Navy Gala Dress

Add a pop of gold with statement earrings.
Keep it simple with nude heels.

Lighten up the mood with floral heels.

National Fringe Week Continues… My ‘Forever’ Fringe Finds

The Fringe ClutchHere’s an oldie but goodie. Back in early August I featured this genuine suede leather purse from Forever 21 in my, “The Fringe Clutch is a Must” piece. Recently you may have noticed Forever 21 stepping up their game by adding more quality of clothing and accessories to their stores. The crazy thing about this change is that they’re still keeping their super low and competitive prices!

The Forever 21 fringe clutch (now also available in black) is truly one of a kind. I love that it extends out and folds over–adding something different to the traditional flat clutch. Just like true and genuine suede should be, this fringe has great movement, and is made with great quality.

My next Forever favorite is a fringe piece that I just discovered online yesterday! It’s another genuine suede leather piece, however a jacket. This fringe jacket is very light, so it’s perfect for the fall. It also has a vintage, yet timelessness to it, making it one of their high demand products. The tan jacket is currently sold out, so I don’t know about you, but I’ll be waiting patiently in the background until I receive my ‘back in stock’ email.

Finally, I’m obsessed with this fringe little black dress. This dress is simple, however, the subtle fringe detailing adds something dynamic. Pair this dress with plain booties–black or tan, and you will for sure become a showstopper. This little number will be making a live appearance to the blog very soon!

Below you’ll find my #ootd look featuring my favorite fringe clutch. You’ll find that I’ve paired this adaptable clutch with a black and white striped top, black distressed denim, and a military style vest. I also added my pink pointed heels to add a splash of bright color.

Stay tuned for an appearance and review of my favorite ‘Forever’ fringe finds!

  Every girl needs a military vest!Another fall and winter staple… black super distressed denim.
