All White + Over The Knee Boots

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Cowl Neck Sweater // White Jeans sold out but similar one here // Over The Knee Boots
Louis Vuitton Metis similar here and here

Happy Wednesday, friends! I've kind of been obsessed with all white outfits lately. I feel like all white with a pretty over the knee boot is the perfect holiday outfit! This cowl neck sweater from Express is currently under $35 and comes in three colors! Most sizes are still available. This sweater is seriously so soft and I love how wide the sleeves are. I paired this sweater with my favorite pair of white jeans! Unfortunately they are sold out but I linked a similar pair here! I'm always searching for the perfect over the knee boot because my legs are super skinny so I need a boot that won't fall down. Ya'll I found the PERFECT over the knee boot and it's on SALE!! This boot is currently under $75 and comes in a few colors. Most sizes are still available but purchase them soon because these will sell out! I've worn these for a few days now and they are super comfortable! They don't fall down like most over the knee boots. I read in the reviews that they are difficult to put on since there is no zipper but I haven't had any issue with that. I tested putting them on with no socks and the struggle was pretty real! lol! So just wear socks with these boots and you'll have no issues getting them off and on. In this post I'm wearing the khaki faux suede but I also tried on the charcoal faux suede and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go back and buy it! All the colors are really stunning! Lastly I paired this outfit with the Louis Vuitton Metis. I've linked a few similar options for under $200!

DIY Ikea Hack: Glam $14.99 Shelf + How To Style

Monday, November 20, 2017

Happy Monday, friends! I'm excited to share this super easy DIY Ikea hack on the blog today. I absolutely love marble and gold! I wanted to create a shelf that would incorporate these elements without being too difficult to construct. I went to Ikea and found this HYLLIS shelf for only $14.99! It comes in a silver color so I had to buy gold spray paint from HobbyLobby. Helpful tip: their spray paint wasn't on sale when I purchased it but if you ever want 40% off a product that's not on sale from  HobbyLobby simply search for their online 40% off coupon on their website. At the cash register just show the cashier the coupon and they will give you 40% off one product! I also purchased marble contract paper. I got mine off amazon but there are a few other places to purchase contract paper.

What You'll Need: For this DIY hack you'll need the HYLLIS shelf from Ikea (it's only $14.99!), gold spray paint (I used the brand Krylon in 18 KT gold), and marble contact paper. 

Step 1: The first thing you would want to do is cut your marble contact paper to fit on top of each shelf. The easiest way for us to do this was to lay the marble contract paper down first and then lay one of the shelves on top of it. Then we used a razor to cut around the shelf. You don't have to worry about scratching the actual shelf since it will be spray painted anyway. Once you've done this four times you can move on to the next step.

Step 2: This is when you'll spray paint your entire shelf. I would recommend NOT spray painting the top of the shelf where you'll be laying down the marble contact paper because it will be covered anyway. Also don't forget to spray paint underneath the shelves and the screws! The easiest way for us to spray paint the screws was to push them into the cardboard that came with the HYLLIS shelf then we just spray painted the top of the screws.

Step 3: After everything has dried you then want to place the marble contact paper on top of each shelf. You should have already cut these out on the first step so now you just need to apply them! These are super easy to apply and can be removed if you mess up. I would use a credit card to push down on the air bubbles if any form after you apply.

Step 4: Finally, follow the instructions to assemble to HYLLIS shelf!

Step 5: Style it! This is my favorite step! I loved seeing the entire shelf come together and it was seriously so easy. This shelf would be super cute in your home office or in the living room.

Gift Guide: For Him ($50 and under)

Sunday, November 19, 2017

Happy Sunday, friends! Today on the blog I'm sharing a gift guide for men. The best part is everything is $50 and under! Every Sunday I'll be sharing different types of gift guides at affordable price points. Let me know in the comments what type of gift guide you want to see next week!

Icon iPhone 7/8 Case & Wallet - I love these phone cases for men! Not only will they protect his phone but they are super stylish. The best part about this phone case is that it's also a wallet. 

The Jack Pack Set - This is the perfect kit for your man's hygiene! This kit includes: facial cleanser, face moisturizer, shave lather, body lotion, and scrubbing soap. ($80 value!) 

Monogram Pocket Watch - This is such a sweet personal gift that's perfect if your man loves watches! 

'Denali' E-Tip Gloves - I've heard some amazing reviews about these gloves! We've never had to use gloves like this in Texas but if you live in colder states or if your man travels a lot this would be the perfect gift. These gloves are touchscreen-compatible so he can still use his smartphone without taking off his gloves. 

Monogram Flask Set - This is another great personalized gift option!

Originals Court Duffel Bag - This is the perfect gift if your man loves to workout or play sports. There is enough space for everything he needs to take to the gym!

Derrick Leather Money Clip Bifold Wallet - I included this wallet because wallets are my go-to gift option. You can't go wrong with a nice wallet for the holidays! 

The Staple Sweater For Fall

Friday, November 17, 2017

Happy Friday, friends! This BP. v-neck sweater is my new favorite fall staple piece! This sweater is perfect for layering with vests, scarves and wraps. It comes in six colors and is under $50! I'm wearing a size small but if I would have sized up to a medium it could have been worn off the shoulder. (My favorite way to wear sweaters!) For under $20 this leopard print scarf is a total steal! You can wear it multiple ways and it's sure to keep you warm. I love how this scarf matches perfectly with my favorite pair of booties! I wear these booties almost every day because they are super comfy. I highly recommend Sole Society boots if you are looking for a great shoe brand. 

I'm planning a ton of holiday content for ya'll including some DIY projects and of course outfit posts. Is there anything on the blog ya'll would love to see? Let me know in the comments!

Cowl Neck Sweater (50% off!)

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Cowl Neck Sweater (50% off!!) // Jeans // similar heels here // here

Happy Wednesday, friends! Majority of the sweaters at Express are currently 50% off today only! YES, you heard that right!! At the bottom of this post I've linked a ton of my favorite sweaters from them for ya'll to shop. I've been living in their sweaters lately the quality it amazing and the price is so affordable. I love the frayed hem jeans trend especially in the winter when you can't really wear distressed jeans because it's so cold outside. Having a frayed hem on your jeans is a fun way to still be stylish with a basic pair of jeans. I love this pair from STS! They are under $50 and fit amazing! This would be the perfect outfit for Thanksgiving if you wanted to dress up a usually comfy outfit.
