When You're Tired and It Shows

Ugh! The dark circles under my eyes are awful today. Hopefully I can get a good night's sleep tonight. Even makeup sometimes can't help those bruises under the eyes.

I know it's January, but it's also almost 70 degrees and feels more like Spring, so I'm wearing a lightweight dress and sandals. Georgia weather is crazy... but I hate the cold, so I'll take it.

A Touch of Gold

The gold studs on today's dress (by Maje) turn this ordinary white lace dress into something so chic!

Some people might say I'm breaking a rule by wearing white in January, but I'm a big fan of "winter white" dresses.

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Hesper 85 Mirror Leather Sandals (no longer available)

The shoes match perfectly with the gold studs and help them stand out. Overall, it's a really flattering look. I just wish I didn't look so tired!

A Little Bit of Color

Today didn't start out great, but wearing a new outfit always cheers me up!

Outfit Details

Dress: La Vie Rebecca Taylor Long Sleeve French Terry Dress

The dress is available in select sizes only at a few retailers, including Nordstrom, ShopBop, Zappos and the Rebecca Taylor website. I'm wearing an XS for reference. I think the sizing at Rebecca Taylor has changed, so I would size down.

The dress is super flattering, comfortable, and warm, and it's on sale now, so it's worth a splurge.

Shoes: Manolo Blahnik BB 90 Rainbow Snakeskin-Embossed Leather Pumps (no longer available)

Since the dress is so grey, I thought I would wear these fun Manolo Blahnik pumps to add a pop of color.

My Holiday - 2019 Edition

Here it is: my last dress of the year -- of the decade! 2020 is just a few days away.

Outfit Details

Shoes: Valentino Rockstud Crisscross d'Orsay Pumps

I just adore this dress -- the mock neck and flutter sleeves are very 'me'. I chose these bright metallic pumps to break up the darkness of the print a little bit, and I like the juxtaposition of hard (the studs) and soft (the floral pattern).

You may also notice a new accessory on my arm: my Christmas gift, a Prada purse! I still can't believe it's mine. Chapin got it on sale at RueLaLa!

Our Christmas was lovely, filled with family time and cherished moments. Here are just a few photos from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Almost Christmas

I'm feeling ready for Christmas in this star-print sweater dress from Ted Baker! I still have baking to do and a few last presents to wrap, but otherwise I'm ready to really celebrate the holidays. Chapin and I are kicking things off tonight with dinner with my sister, Gail, and her husband, Rich.

Festive Dress for the Holidays

We had our holiday party today at my office, so of course I had to wear a festive dress for the occasion. I chose this beautiful emerald green Sandro dress; the color is perfect for the season!

Local Marketing, Inc. Office Holiday Party - December 18, 2019

Monday, December 16, 2019


How can I look so tired on a Monday?! I didn't catch up on a lot of sleep this past weekend, so I guess that's why. We had a lot going on, and I ended up having to work most of the day on Sunday. I guess it's early to bed for me tonight!

Today's dress is one I almost didn't buy, but I'm glad I did. I got such a great deal on it, although I wish I would have sized down. The fabric is thick and bunches a little on the sides. The shoulders are "strong" (read: padded), and I love the illusion of a tapered waist. It's sparkly and festive and oh so flattering!

Dress: Alice + Olivia Adelaide Sheath Dress

Shoes: SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Taylor Closed Toe T-Strap Pumps (no longer available)

It's hard to believe Christmas is next week. I am so not done with my shopping! EEK!
