As far as I'm concerned, there is no better way to complete an outfit than a statement necklace. I wear them all the time. It's really sad how expensive they can be. I have been on a mission to find affordable and cute statement necklace to share with you (and buy for myself). I must say, I think I found a couple winners. I hope you enjoy my picks from Baublebar, Jeweliq, and Francesca's.
I was in Forever 21 the other day, and found the cutest jacket for less than $40. I was so inspired that I decided to dedicate a whole post the great coats there. I hope you like my five favorites I posted.
Elf is known for selling high quality products for very low prices. So today I decided to go on the elf website today because I want a new blush for winter, and I was met with the most wonderful surprise. EVERYTHING is 40% off!! Therefore, I bought about 200% more. The deals were just so good. I couldn't help myself. Everything I bought was ended up being under $5 (a lot of it was under $2). I made a slideshow of some of the things I really liked, but you should check it out for yourself.
So lately I've really been racking up the Birchbox points. I had about 400, and decided to buy something. I settled on these lip pencils because I wanted something different (with my points, I only paid $2!!!). I must say, I'm truly impressed with them. The colors are so pretty, and stay on for a long time. My favorite is the second one from the left(pictured above). I just cannot get over what a great buy this was.
I first heard about Mayhem a couple months ago when I read an article about her and her mother's paper creations. I was enthralled by her spunk, and found her truly inspirational. Earlier this week, I saw that she is collaborating with J. Crew's children's brand Crewcuts. I think it is amazing that she is only 4 years old, and is doing something millions of people about. I highly recommend you check out her mom's instagram, and see all of her awesome outfits!
I have a huge family, and we love to get together whenever we can. But, as one of the youngest of 14 cousins(on my mom's side), it's pretty hard to do. So when everyone comes back to Pittsburgh for Christmas, we spend as much time as possible together. Christmas is pretty laid back, but Christmas Eve is actually quite formal. After church, we all go over to my Aunt's house for by far the best meal of the year. So naturally I needed a great outfit to wear. When I was in Loft the other day, I immediately fell in love with this skirt. I knew it would be perfect for Christmas eve. I planned the rest of my outfit around it. I knew I would be able to pair it with things I already own. I bought this sweater from Old Navy earlier this fall. I have had these flats for years, and love them. I have so many pairs of these tights it's ridiculous(they're just so soft!), and I am wearing a pair of old earrings that are similar to these. What will you be doing to celebrate the season?

Splurge: 1, 2, 3
I was downtown the other day, and I saw all of these girls wearing fur. It really got me thinking about how cute and classy fur can be. Unfortunately, these things can be pretty expensive. I found these three great alternatives to the cute styles on the right. I hope you find something you like!
I know this skirt costs slightly more than what I normally go for ($65), but I bought it two years ago, and still am madly in love with it. It is without a doubt my favorite article of clothing. I wear it as much as I possibly can. It goes with everything, and always looks so nice. Whenever I wear it, I get tons of compliments. Do you have any wardrobe staples you can't live without?
When the holidays come around, I love breaking out all of my sparkly nail polish. It just adds an extra level of festivity to any outfit. I especially love the Ulta brand (it's only $6!). It''s such a high quality, and so affordable. Does anyone else have any other suggestions?
Have you ever heard of sheinside.com? Well when I found it a few months ago I was so impressed. There was this beautiful, floral, Valentino dress I had be lusting for months, but there was no chance I would ever spend close to $1000 on a dress! Then I came across this dress and literally screamed for 20 minutes straight. This store has so many products that are like big, label, designer pieces. It's amazing and I love it and I hope you do too.
