I’ve been dying to find the perfect sweater dress for months now so when I came across  this one on a recent spur of the moment Marshall’s trip, I knew it was coming home with me. Especially with its less than $40 price tag! Oh, and not to freak you out or anything but THIS is the last weekend to shop before Christmas! Somehow Amazon had me believin’ that I was pretty much done with my xmas shopping. But the only person I’m done with his eep! He is the easiest (and most fun) kid to shop for! Hope you guys are doing better than I am with checking things off your list! Have a great (and productive!) weekend!

Fabletics Gold Triangle Sweatshirt

I’ve been asked a few times by friends/acquaintances  if I REALLY like Fabletics?!? And the answer is YES! In fact…Laura (from Bombshell)…if you’re reading…I know I recommended the “Lima Capris” but these are the “Salar Capris” and I LOVE them just as much! I was trying to figure out what the difference between the two was and the only real difference I can tell is that the Salar Capris are “maximum compression” whereas the Lima Capris are “medium compression”?!? They both seem to fit the same (on me at least). The Limas have an extra little stitch detailing on the back below the waistline which I find to be flattering on. As for this sweatshirt, I could tell that it was going to run small so I went up a size and ordered a medium. Have YOU joined Fabletics yet?!?

Hair Extensions

I’ve been wearing my hair short for over a year now, but over the summer I went from a long bob (lob) to an ever shorter more extreme a-line cut (seen here).  As much as I loved having a “hairstyle”, I did miss being able to pull my hair into a ponytail! So I decided to grow my hair out. But as you guys know, this in-between length has been driving me crazy! I’ve had tape-in extensions just on my sides of my hair  before (for fullness) but this time I went for the whole shebang! The first pic is of my hair before (don’t mind the lovely kink from my hair being up in a clip), during and after. I had quite a blunt cut so we added just the tiniest bit of layering to the back so that it would blend better with the extensions.

And here it is curled. The first and second day I felt like I had a sign on my forehead that said, “I HAVE EXTENSIONS”! But so far everyone is impressed by not only how well they blend but how perfectly the color matches! For anyone interested, we used three boxes of hair and mixed two colors (butterscotch and cocoa twist). If you live locally, I HIGHLY recommend my hairdresser Alisa from Bombshell 101 in Encinitas. She’s not only one of my best friends of 20+ years, but the only person I trust with my hair!

toggle plaid two ways

Today I am excited to be teaming up with my girl Shanna of Because Shanna Said So for a little “Two Ways to Wear” feature! We’ve kind of been inseparable (well, as inseparable as living in different states can be) ever since the day we met…thank goodness for unlimited text messaging plans…lol! We both unknowingly purchased this plaid print toggle jacket and when we figured it out, we knew we HAD to share it with y’all (that one’s for YOU Shanna)! I decided to pair mine with a little black dress, tights and my new over the knee boots. And Shanna looks cozy in hers with a pair of cute skinnies, chambray top and a matching buffalo check print scarf! Be sure and stop by her blog to get her full outfit details! Btw, if you’re looking to add a cute new coat to your wardrobe this winter, I highly recommend this one! As I’ve mentioned a few times, I usually shop Forever 21’s “Love 21″ line since it runs a half size bigger than their regular junior sizing. But this coat is from their regular line (although the tag says it’s from their “premium line”) and the small fits perfectly. I promise you will LOVE it! Have a great weekend friends.

With the holiday season in full swing, I thought I would share a little holiday outfit inspiration! I’ve had this skirt for years and even shared 5 ways to wear it on the blog. But this time I paired it with my new cooper + ella blouse from their “holiday collection“.  I love the sheer shoulder and side cutouts but the v back is actually my favorite feature of this blouse. You’ve got to love a blouse that looks good coming or going!
