Sweet Lace and a Lil’ Bling to Ring in the New Year.

This was our first New Year’s Eve as a married couple and I must say, we definitely lived up to┬áthe married couple cliche as we brought on the new year! Our evening was filled with family, pizza, a cozy fireplace, and of course several Red Box rentals! To be honest, there is nothing I would rather do on New Year’s Eve than sit in my own living room and cuddle up to comfort food and movies (and of course my sweetie!). Some call it lame, I call it content.

But no matter what you consider a great way to ring in the new year, we all like to look a little pretty, so here’s what I would wear! This adorable lace top is soooo sweet and romantic. It breaks the navy and black fashion rules, but it feels SO RIGHT! And because it’s New Year’s Eve, you have to add in some bling- why not this AMAZING necklace from the Loft! I paired it with simple dark wash jeans and my favorite pair of black patent leather pumps! Goes great with my favorite glass of red wine and it’s perfect for whatever your plans are!

The dark wash jeans with the zipper pockets are from The Loft, as is this romantic lace tank, and the romantic necklace! The black patent leather pumps are from Ann Taylor. This wine can be purchased at most Pick n’ Save stores.

Ladies LOVE Lace!

This past year in April, Ryley and my┬áspring break schedules didn’t line up so Ryley took a personal day to spend time with me during my break. Aweee… Anyway, there was snow on the ground but we were both itching for sun and spring, so we ventured off to find a nature park near our new house! We stumbled across this beautiful park just a few blocks away which was breathtaking even with all the yucky snow! They even had a small mini-golf area with a big Snoopy (see below!!!) ! We knew we HAD to go back once it got nice! During this time of year, I love a comfy, chic tank with lots of romantic detail. I also ADORE all white! Nothing like a romantic lace tank to make you feel like a lady! You just CAN”T go wrong with lace and all white this time of year!! So feminine and elegant! I decided to pair this tank with a nice big shoulder bag with a beautiful texture since another school year is about to start back up and I just know I will need a nice big bag! And the loafers I picked here are feminine and girly and look great with the brown bag!
