Shopping the sales at Forever21 is guilty pleasure of mine. I constantly tell myself that I've outgrown their affordable cheap-and-chic clothes (even though I'm not 21...hah!)  and that it's time to move on.
Then I walk in one day intending to simply browse and I see these knee-high boots. They resembled the greatly sought after 'of the moment' Stuart Weitzmen boots but at a fraction of the price. I kind of had to get them.

Not even a week later they had marked down their entire outer wear section and this gorgeous faux-fur coat found it's way into my shopping cart. It's become my go-to statement piece this winter.

Well hey there, y'all! Hope 2016 has been good to you (so far) This last month has been a combo of hectic work days, end of year sale shopping, and far too short weekends.

If there's one thing I learned from 2015 it's that things don't always go as planned. Ironically, that's also something I have been focusing on lately. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you have a plan and goals.

This outfit features something you'll almost never see me in - a hat! For whatever reason they just don't ever seem to work for me.  When my friend Jenny over at Trendz in New Orleans asked me o style some fall items, I was a little hesitant about that hat. This is the first one I've tried that actually flatters my face. I was so excited!! I kept the rest of the look neutral and pretty casual. I doubt that element of my wardrobe will change that much this year lol
