My favorite books of 2016

Can you guys believe we are in the last few days of 2016? It seems like the older I get the quicker the years go by. I feel like it was just 2015 a moment ago. Today is my last day of the work week so tomorrow I'll be spending my down time cleaning up my office and starting a new book. My all-time favorite hobby is reading. I am always reading something because it helps me to relax and wind down before bed. When I have a stressful day at work, I love how easy it is to pick up a book and ... Read the Post

Holiday Pink & Red

Can you believe there are only three days until Christmas?! I still have some last minute gifts to buy, not because I'm a procrastinator, but because I've been THAT busy. I work full time so I can't get to the mall until 5 pm and it's a nightmare by that time. Fortunately I've been able to order most of my gifts online but there are a few I have to pick up in person. Praying I make it through the last minute rush of holiday shoppers this weekend! In other news, today's outfit is one of my ... Read the Post

Christmas Photos

I can't believe Christmas is less than two weeks away! For those who don't know, outside of the blog I have a full time job as a Contract Administrator. I work for a defense contractor here in Huntsville, AL.  I've been in this industry for going on five years but I started a new job a few weeks ago so I have been so busy adjusting to a new schedule and workload. I'm also halfway through with my Master's so that keeps me quite busy, especially at the end of the semester. On top of the new job ... Read the Post

Cozy Cowlneck Sweater + Ann Taylor Sale

I hate to admit this but I used to dismiss Ann Taylor as one of those boring "matronly" stores. It wasn't until this last year that I really started to notice how beautiful and classic their pieces are. Over the past few years, my style has evolved into more of what I would describe as "classic feminine". I tend to gravitate towards items that will last through fashions ever-evolving trends. I do love the occasional unique item but I prefer pieces that will carry me into future seasons as style ... Read the Post

40% off Holiday Outfit with Ann Taylor + His and Her Gift Guides

After a killer migraine last night, I am spending the entire Saturday on the couch, in my pajamas, watching Christmas movies. I just noticed that Ann Taylor is having a 40% off sale today and my entire outfit below is on sale. My top is petite friendly and is so comfortable. This skirt is the most beautiful shade of red and it has pockets so what else do I need to say? My black suede pumps also come in a rich burgundy red color and they're easy to wear all day. I wore them to work for 9 hours ... Read the Post
