Happy Monday, y'all! I recently purchased

these

black ripped jeans and I can't stop wearing them (

clearly

). The last time I styled them (

see it 

here

) it was also with a blue top, but this oversized sweater and booties give it a completely different look. I found this exact sweater on sale at Topshop on Black Friday, but thankfully they have two that are almost identical that are still both under $70. To even out the dark hues, I added a basic pair of grey

booties

and this amazing beaded 

necklace

Thanks for reading!

Do you ever have those days where you find a standout piece in the midst of a million other things? That's what this jacket is for me. Last spring, I noticed the vibrant blue in a sea of a million other things at Forever 21. Unfortunately, it's sold out now, but I've linked two similar ones. I continued with the slight edge the jacket gave with ripped black skinnies and a classic pair of black pumps. Perfect for a night out!

For starters, I have to address the grain in these pictures!! That is one of the most frustrating things to me, but because of the setting sun and my lack of camera settings knowledge, it had to be grainy or nothing! 

Growing up, we used to always cut down our Christmas trees in the snow, which has become one of my favorite Christmas memories. Living in Louisiana though, it was nearly impossible to find a farm where you could actually cut down your own tree. Since we're back in Houston now, I was determined to find a place where we could actually cut down our own trees again! We were able to find one of the cutest places ever, Old Time Christmas Tree Farm. It was a little bit of a drive out there, but I think it was more than worth it. They are so efficient and I was thrilled to be able to actually cut down our own tree again! Unfortunately, there wasn't any snow, but I'll take what I can:)

For those of you interested in the Cyber-Monday sales going on today, make sure to check out my last post (

here

). Although I made this for Black Friday, the majority of the stores listed are online or have some online component, and therefore should still be having equally as good deals! 

Thanks for reading!

Tweed is one of my favorite parts of winter fashion. It's so effortless but makes me feel like I'm strolling the streets of Paris. I personally feel that a tweed dress is not complete without pearls!

With Christmas Eve coming up, this would make a great outfit for any church service or other holiday party you may be attending. This was my Christmas Eve service dress last year, but I'm still completely in love with it. 

Check back Monday for my Christmas Eve service outfit for this year!

I'm completely in love with this skirt. I know everyone and their mom has already posted, bought and worn it, but I still love it. I got mine early last fall when this blog was still just a thought, but I love it so much that I still had to feature it. 

The clutch is part of the 3 in 1 bag I featured a couple weeks ago for a

travel look

. The bag it came with is reversible, and features this inside pocket plus a pouch for smaller essentials. The fact that I can reverse the big bag sold me enough, but this inner "clutch" was the icing on top. 

I hope everyone has a great week!
