Feminine Fall

I recently got to shoot with Shelby (follow her gorgeous Instagram here), a very talented photographer in Southwest Missouri that I've known for a long time. We actually used to dance together years ago and have kept in touch on social media over the years, but we finally connected and collaborated on shooting several different looks and themes for fall and the holidays. She is so creative and has such a beautiful eye for photography! This look was essentially my dream shoot... An amazing floral maxi dress, a huge bouquet of roses, and golden hour lighting. 

I'm now a firm believer that a long-sleeve maxi dress is one of the most flattering things you can wear, especially if it defines the waistline. Not to mention that they're just beautiful! You can easily tone one down with a suede, leather or denim jacket, or dress one up with heels and statement earrings for an unexpected holiday party look. Below I've linked some of my favorites that I've found around the web... 



This Month's Favorites + Cyber Monday

How on earrrttthhhh is it Monday already?? I got Wednesday - Friday off last week, but that 5-day weekend vanished before my eyes. 

Somehow, December is also just about here (whoa.) so it's time for my monthly edition of This Month's Favorites

Favorite New Lip Colors

Tarte 'Fiery' (mine is a sample) and Kat Von D 'Lolita' (available online right now - it's usually sold out!)

Favorite Fashion Purchase

After going a bit wild with online shopping the last couple of months, I've finally come back to my senses. However, I have zero regrets when it comes to purchasing these gorgeous black leather ankle boots. I wear them constantly with both work and casual outfits.

Favorite Highlight

Purchasing a new car on Wednesday!

We've needed to replace Trey's car for awhile and finally took the plunge last week. We decided on a Jeep Cherokee and we're obsessed!

Favorite Outfit Post

All outfit details are in this post.

Favorite Holiday Activity

Decorating our Christmas tree. I shared some of my favorite holiday decor finds last night if you're like me and still building up your collection of ornaments, wreaths and such.

Favorite Links

Justin Bieber's 'Purpose: The Movement' vidoes. He created dance-focused videos for every song on his album (non-deluxe version) and is only in one of them, so he features a lot of phenomenal dancers of various styles. As a former dancer I LOVE this concept. "I'll Show You," "Love Yourself," and the duet in "Company" are my favorites. 

Favorite Photo

Trey and I on Thanksgiving at my parents' (my dress is under $20 here + worn in this outfit post)

Christmas Decor

I have the best childhood memories of decorating my family's home for Christmas with my sister, especially decorating our tree. Now I have my own home and starting last year, I purchased a few Christmas decorations and started curating my own collection of ornaments. I still don't have a lot of Christmas decor, so I've been watching for the perfect items to pick up. I love having a neutral white, gold and silver theme, but I love the occasional pop of color with some red berries or fun ornaments! Let me know if you've picked up any gorgeous decorations I need to know about!

My holiday gift guides will be rolling out later this week so stay tuned!
