One Year Ago Today...

One year ago today, I adopted the sweetest little pup in the whole entire world!  I adore her in every single way.  She is my everything!  Although I've only had her for a year, it seems that I've had her for much longer.  She fit right in from the very first day and is such a little doll!

I'll love you forever and always, Jaycee!  Thank you for changing my life one year ago today <3

Guest Post - Sweet Like A Song!

Hi, everyone!

My name is  Melody, and I blog over at Sweet Like a Song!

I am so honored to be posting for Rachel, while she's off having a fabulous time in New York City!

Today, I'm talking about a pattern that many of us love so much!


During the winter season, I love seeing plaid prints incorporated into dresses, shirts, scarves, everything! There's just something about plaid that makes me excited for cold weather, and for the holidays to come!

Here are a few ways that I love wearing this fabulous cold-weather print!

1. The J.CREW Perfect Shirt in Plaid
I picked up this classic button-down shirt from J.CREW last year, and it was the perfect addition to my closet! I love pairing it with leggings and a vest or dressing up a bit with nice jeans and pearls. It works for SO many occasions!

2. Forever21 Plaid Skirt
Last Christmas, I looked everywhere for the perfect plaid skirt, but it wasn't until April that I found the just what I wanted! In Forever21, on the sale rack, I found a plaid skirt very similar to this one for $10.00! It was a steal, and I knew I had to have it! I haven't worn it just yet, but I'm excited to pair it with tights, riding boots and a pretty white sweater this Christmas!

3. Talbots Gala-Plaid Taffeta Dress
I was looking over the Talbots catalog just the other day, when I spotted this beauty! I think it would be the perfect dress to wear while hosting a Christmas Party or going out to a really nice dinner! It's so elegant and classic, my favorites!

4. Plaid Accessories!
Nothing ties a look together any better than throwing on a plaid scarf or accessory! This Merona plaid scarf from Target is definitely on my Christmas list!

Are you mad about plaid this year?

If you're interested in reading more from me, I'd love to have you over at Sweet Like a Song! Thanks so much, Rachel, for letting me guest post for you!

As always, Have a sweet day!

Guest Post - Life With Emily!

Hi! My name is Emily, I blog at Life With Emily. My blog consists of lifestyle, fashion, adventure & everything in between. I hope you will follow along! I am so happy to be guest posting for Rachel while she is in the city that never sleeps. I can't wait to see her purchases from her trip! I'm sure they're to die for!
Today I'm talking about my "cold essential items!" These are items that I have deemed essentials in my closet for the cold weather months!

1. Fur Vests. Yes. 110%. (Faux) Fur vests can do no wrong. They add a little sass (or warmth) to every outfit! If you are looking for a fur vest, I found two great ones at my Dillard's store and one from Michael Kors (pictured).

2. Boots. Whether it is raining or snowing and you need to pull out the Hunter boots, or you're going more for a casual and put together look, boots will be your answer! I live in my boots from about October to March! Which is also my excuse to buy more!

3. Booties. There are a new found love of mine. At first I was unsure of this trend, but then I dove.....and fell hard. Booties are my newest obsession. They are warm, chic, and stylish! I may have to go on a bootie shopping ban..... seriously, you can't go wrong!

4. Infinity Scarves. I'm not sure why I am partial to infinity scarf, but I am!I think it's because it looks more put together and yet it's still cute. Regardless, I have quite a few- and they're necessities in my book.

5. Oversized Sweaters. Nothing screams fall to me more than a good oversized sweater. In the fall and winter I tend to dress for comfort (not for men or anyone else) so oversized sweaters are perfect for me!

6. Colored Cords. I loved when colored denim was on trend this summer and fall, but I think I am even more so in love with colored cords. I can look cute while still being warm....? Perfect in my book!

I hope you find these items are all essential for you as well! Thanks for letting me guest post, Rachel!

Guest Post - Tickled Pink!

Hi Ladies! My name is Andrea and I blog over at Tickled Pink (link:, I feel so honored to to be guest posting for Rachel, she has the best style and is absolutely adorable!

I'm a big fan of anything with ruffles, and recently I've had quite the obsession with ruffled collar blouses! They are the perfect way to dress up jeans or create a super classy look by adding a skirt and tights (and revas, of course!).  Elizabeth McKay makes my favorite ruffled blouses, but they can be a bit pricey.  I've found that the J.crew factory store carries some really cute ones at a more budget-friendly price!  Here are my faves:

Do you all love ruffles too? How do you wear them? Hope you have a wonderful day!

Guest Post - It's Official!

I'm very excited to be guest blogging for Rachel today (and very jealous of her vacation)! I thought it would be only appropriate to do a birthday party inspired post as that is exactly what she will be out celebrating. I truly think whether you are the glam type or the cozy type, that vanilla cake bubble bath sounds amazing! 

Happy Birthday Rachel!!

One of the most exciting parts of this Holiday season for me has been drooling over all the festive dresses!  When I see them, my mind starts to think of any party I can possibly attend to where I will need to purchase one of these.  Whether its a shimmer or a sparkle, a lace, metallic, or bow, there is a dress that will flaunt this magical season.

Key Fob Fantastic!

I have a thing for key fobs!  I always seem to come across the most adorable ones.  There are so many that I love and I'm most definitely in the market for a new one (maybe I'll have luck in NYC).  They are also the perfect stocking stuffer!  Have a look and see why I'm so crazy about key fobs!

Do any of these catch your eye?
