Look Back at It

Look Back at It

It's amazing to me how quickly 2017 came and went, but I wanted to look back and re-share some of my favorite looks, moments, and events of the year. Grab your favorite cup of coffee or glass of bubbles, and enjoy!

Rang in the new year at home with friends over good food, lots of bubbles, and fire pit time. My family came to visit, and we played tourist with my brother while celebrating a good friend's birthday. My dad and brother headed back home, while my mom stayed for two months to help out with Serena when I went back to work.

Favorite January Look - Yay Rose


Celebrated my mom's birthday with her in town. I treated her to a pedicure at the new nail salon bar Tipsy, and then we enjoyed a celebratory hibachi dinner. 

We also attended the Downtown Food and Wine Festival with Pamela and the boys. We had fun sampling wines, bubbles *of course*, and small bites. 

Favorite February Look - Currant Slash Tee


We took a day trip to St. Augustine (recap here), where we toured the local winery, distillery, and finished the day at rooftop bar on St. Augustine Beach. Florida living at it's finest.

Favorite March Look - Zip Me Up


Friends of ours held a chili cook off, and it was fun to taste and judge all the different recipes. I also did some vacation shopping for San Francisco in May, and enjoyed Barre3 in the Park with Pamela.

Favorite April Look - Not So Basic White Tee


We celebrated a dear friend's first pregnancy (at the time we were unaware she was doubly blessed with twins!) Emily was the hostess with the mostess, and we enjoyed a fun girls day.

We also jet-setted to San Francisco and Napa Valley for a long weekend with friends. Trip recaps can be found here:

It Was All a Dream - Sonoma and Napa Valley

Favorite May Look - Crochet Detailing and Sunsets


We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary, and had a pretty quiet month. Lots of pool time, and a fun block party downtown by the lake.

Favorite June Look - Rompin' Around


Celebrated Pamela's birthday at our favorite brunch spot, and the following week was the Metallica concert that we had been anticipating for months. Absolutely amazing show....

Favorite July Look - Scallops and Studs


Squeezed in a much needed beach day, and celebrated my birthday with a fun brunch.

Favorite August Look - Going with the Flow


Hurricane Irma happened, and we were without power for a week. After we recovered from the storm, a friend and I attended the fall fashion show at Macy's.

I also was treated to a hydrafacial and a tour of the newest Couture Med Spa in Central Florida which was absolutely heavenly.

Favorite September Look - Dramatic Florals


We took Serena to the pumpkin patch and celebrated her 1st birthday with a mermaid themed party at the house, and her grandparents flew in to celebrate with her.

Favorite October Look - Laced Up and Cozy


Celebrated a friend's birthday at a local winery, enjoyed a cozy Thanksgiving weekend, and found this year's Christmas tree in time for our annual holiday party at the house.

Favorite November Look - Distressed Savings


Kicked off the month with our annual Christmas party at the house, celebrated Emily's birthday with another fabulous brunch, took lil' miss to Light Up UCF and the downtown boat parade. 

Favorite December Look - Oh Christmas Tree

I'll be taking a break from blogging until after the new year so I can focus on celebrating the holidays with family and friends. I'll still be active on InstagramTwitter, and Snapchat so come follow along! Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Tree

It's such a fun time of year for fashion isn't it? Between the bold colors, the lace, the sparkle, and shine we spread Christmas cheer just walking down the street. My favorite faux leather leggings have been on serious repeat, and I love how they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Leggings {Less than $20} | Top {similar} | Heels {similar}| Sunnies | Bangles | Lipstick

I'll be popping in on Friday to recap my favorite looks and events from 2017, and then I'll be taking a break from blogging until after the new year so I can focus on celebrating the holidays with family and friends. I'll still be active on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat so come follow along! Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Boat Parade Weekending

Boat Parade Weekending

One week countdown! As expected, this exciting time of year has been flying by and there are still a few festive things I need to squeeze in before the big day. After last weekend, and with lil' miss feeling sick it was nice to have a cozier weekend consisting of going out to see Christmas displays and lights, and we caught the annual boat parade down at the lake.

Fill 'er up! One more week until a much needed Christmas break. Full steam ahead with all the coffee, and looking forward to true relaxation and quality time with friends and family.

*Speaking my love language*

For the record, I'm not a gin person but a few friends introduced me to a well made gin martini recently and I may be on my way to conversion. So, when H brought home a bottle of Tanquery the other day I wanted to mix up something fun and festive. I shall call it Christmas Berry Pine.

Christmas Berry Pine

2 oz. of gin
Club soda
Splash of cranberry juice
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Pour over ice
