SEXY Black Basics

November 26, 2015

I love BLACK, and I love a little sexy edge when it comes to fashion!

I picked up a few basics at Top Shop during their Thanksgiving sale, and I wanted to show you what I got! I got a few other pieces with color too, but maybe I will show those in a later post!

Every year I get a fresh new black turtle neck!! I prefer a tight fit for my turtle necks! I find that they are sexy and classy all at the same time! I’m hoping this one is the perfect fit.

I’ve always wanted a leather pencil skirt. They never fit quite right, so I’m hoping this one works out!

I have a pair of over the knee suede boots, but they are starting to fall apart. They weren’t very expensive, so I wanted to get a pair that I think will last for years and years! I love the almond shape toes on these. It’s usually either pointed or completely round, so I like this shape the best!

I always get a special little something that only Byron sees me in. I usually get a bra that I can wear under items, but also looks sexy when I take off my clothes at night! He appreciates that! haha

Chunky Ring Obsession

November 26, 2015

Sorry it’s been a bit since I’ve posted. We’ve been traveling a lot, and now just chillin at home till we leave to travel again in a few days! While Byron watches football on Thanksgiving evening, I’m doing a little shopping.. We stayed home from events today, because I’m under the weather. Perfect opportunity to online shop!

I thought I would pop on here and chat some fashion with you. I NEVER shop at stores, almost never! I order everything online at night while I’m bored. Once I get everything in the mail, I hang it all up on my clothing rack and try it all on with different items in my wardrobe. I decide what I want to keep, and send back the items that I’m not super in love with. That’s been working great for me ever since I had Oliver!

 A few months ago I bought a YSL Arty ring on Postmark after years of having my eye on it. I’ve always been the type to splurge on one really expensive thing, and I’m glad I did. I wear that ring everywhere! I love it! In where it with jeans dressed down, or a dressed up look also. I got it for a great price, pre-loved and warn only once.

Here’s what I ordered from Henri Bendel.

I’ve had my eye on a David Yurman ring, but the price point is beyond my comfort zone! lol  This ring reminded me of that ring in a way, because of it’s two toned metallics. I LOVE it!


I loved the odd shape and matte look of this stack ring set. I wanted chunky and statement, so I’m excited to see how this pairs with dresses and even simple jeans and a black turtle neck.


I wanted something really chunky and blingy. The multi-colored gem ring was an instant eye catcher for me!

I got everything on sale!! Thats the best part!!! I go through phases with jewelry, but I usually stick to dainty everything, and one chunky piece. Either a big watch and everything else dainty, or a giant ring, and everything else dainty. I just think it looks so classy!

Hope you enjoyed this quick post

Girls Weekend: Vegas

November 9, 2015

It’s not everyday you can get your childhood friends together and have a girls weekend away. The first part of our trip this weekend has been so fun! We started off in Vegas, a bit off the strip, because we were looking for more of a calm and relaxed getaway. Time to chat, enjoy good food, and maybe a few spa treatments too.


Breakfast of champions! haha
