Happy 4th Y’all! I hope you all are having a fun and safe holiday with family and friends! It’s ridiculously hot here (and if I think it’s hot then it’s REALLY hot) so we’ve been indoors most of the day, but it’s been nice to just relax.

I want to thank all of those who serve and have served our country to allow us to live a life of freedom. Praising God today and always for all of our blessings!

P.S. My dress is currently half off making it under $50! It runs a little big so size down.

xoxo,

Alli

Y’ALL. It has been a minute! Life just got crazy busy after the new year and I’ve honestly probably taken 6 outfit shoots since then but either wasn’t happy with the quality or I would wait so long to post that we were moved on to the next season. I know this is just a hobby of mine but this is something I have wanted to do for so long and I have been itching to get back into it. So now that I’m officially on summer break I’m ready to get back to posting!

The 4th of July is this week and I love to dress up for this holiday! Maybe because I’m a Ralph Lauren girl and I feel like red, white, and blue is like their signature. Something about these colors makes you feel casual but classy at the same time, even if it’s a simple tee and shorts. Whenever I seen this top I knew I HAD to have it. Anything gingham is right up my alley and the tassels make it that much more fun. I paired it with basic white denim and my Jacks. I know I’ve said it before but if you don’t have a pair of these you need them! They go with everything and once their broken in they are soooo comfy.

I’m hoping to redo my site soon and add some cool features making it easier to shop my looks, even the ones I post on Instagram. If you don’t follow me there you can find me here. I hope you all enjoyed this post and I’ll see you back here soon. 🙂

Hello, 2018!

Happy New Year, Y’all! I know it’s like the 3rd week of January and I took these pictures weeks ago but I have been crazy busy and haven’t been able to get my post up! Dance has started back so I’ve been busy with that and I’ve had a sinus infection so I’m a little behind. But I’m back today to share one of my favorite looks! I wore this for my birthday, which is also on NYE. I love any excuse to wear sequins and just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean we can’t dress up a little extra! I think the mesh with smaller sequin appliqués are subtle enough to pull this off year round. This coat is so cozy and soft and who doesn’t love faux fur? These shoes are from a friend’s wedding and I’m always looking for an excuse to wear them again. They are beautiful and I love the pop of blue on the sole.

Do you all have any New Years Resolutions? I normally don’t but I wanted to try it this year. Mine are:

  1. Putting the Word before the world. Instead of diving right into social media first thing when I wake up I want to spend my time in the word. I use the First 5 app to help me with this. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a new devotional.
  2. Work more on my blog. I know this is just a hobby but I’ve wanted to do this for so long so I want to really give it my all. I also want to learn to write better. I hated writing in school so I’m not the best with words, but I want to work on it!
  3. Take better care of myself mentally and physically. Anyone who knows me knows I’m quite the worry wart and this past year it really took a toll on me. I’m trying to worry less and trust God more to take care of everything. Also, I want to eat better. I have no self control when it comes to candy so I need to work on that.

I’m sure there are more things I could work on but these are my main ones for now. Hopefully I can stick to them! lol I hope you all continue to have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. I hope today is filled with laughter and love from family and friends and let’s not forget the true reason for the season: the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

“For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this. ” Isaiah 9:6-7

‘Tis the Season

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas! It’s my favorite time of year and I so wish it lasted more than just a month. I love all the lights, decorations and of course all the pops of red everywhere. I seen this coat months ago and it just screamed Christmas so I knew I had to have it. As if the bell sleeves weren’t enough, the rhinestone buttons add a dressier touch making it perfect for the holidays. Unfortunately this coat is sold out in red but the white and black and still available in limited sizes. It’s also on sale for under $100! I paired it with a black lace dress and pumps to keep it simple underneath.

Have you all finished your shopping yet? I got a late start so I’ve been ordering things like crazy on Amazon. Thank goodness for prime! I hope you all are enjoying the Christmas season!

A Timeless Gift for Christmas

I’ve partnered with Jord Watches to show you the most unique and timeless gift. These wooden watches are absolutely beautiful and add the perfect touch to any outfit. I’m wearing the Frankie Watch in Dark Sandalwood with the smoke face. I wear a lot of neutrals so I knew this watch would fit my style perfectly. You can wear this with jeans and a chunky sweater for a more casual look or pair it with a dress like I did.

Jord has SO many styles to choose from for both men and women making this a one stop shop for all the people on your list. Each series has different color combinations to choose from so you can be sure to find the watch that fits best. I really love the pink faced Frankie watch for your Mom or bestie and the ebony Hyde watch for that special guy in your life. The gorgeous wooden frame and classic design are sure to make this a memorable gift that your loved one will cherish for years to come. They also offer personalized engraving to add that special touch.

Happy Thursday y’all! I am loving all things embroidered lately and these booties are perfect! They are extremely comfortable because of the block heel and look so nice on. And good news, they’re on sale! I listed two links above one site has them for $50 and the other for $33! But hurry I don’t know how long they’ll be on sale. I paired it with my favorite black skinny jeans (SO comfy) and this mustard yellow sweater. It’s no surprise I’m still loving all things bell sleeved. It just makes everything more flattering. I think this look would be perfect for Thanksgiving!

With the holiday season officially upon us I know everyone is going to be shopping like crazy. I’m hoping to create some fun content for you guys such as gift guides, holiday outfits, etc. So be sure to keep checking back. As always, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
