Y'all. This sweater. I'm smitten. I mean it's got an owl on it... WITH glasses! I love owls and I wear glasses (duh)! It's another one of those Le Tote pieces that I wanted to keep, but just couldn't justify the price. Oh well! It was fun for a day, but not really a piece I'd be able to "remix" that much.

The past week has been a busy one! New years eve we had a small party at our house. It was fun, but I pretty much just wanted to clean up the whole time because I couldn't stand seeing my house messy. OCD much? Maybe so. Haha. New years day I woke up pretty early and went to the big Dillard's sale. All clearance items were an additional 50% off! The shoes and handbag areas were pure craziness. I myself went for some cheap bras. I ended up with 4 bras ($5 and $7 each), 2 pairs of earrings ($4.50 each), and some leggings for 5 bucks.  After that I picked up some Chinese take out for Larry and I. So traditional, I know haha. I called my mom and had to laugh to her because my family always eats black eyed peas and cabbage on new years, but I hate both. Maybe Chinese take out will be Larry and I's new year tradition. :)

 I was in my BFF MAPS (the accronym for BFF in Spanish) wedding on Saturday, so Friday I we had a bridal luncheon at a plantation home, then we went to get our nails done. Then Friday evening was the rehearsal dinner.

Saturday was spent getting ready (hurr done, nails done, errrthang diddd- sorry, I had to!), and then THE WEDDING! Ahh it was SO gorgeous! I told her that I'll have to post the pictures to my blog so that I can pin them on to Pinterest because the whole wedding was so pin-worthy!

Sunday morning I had my sister her cut my hair. The ends were so long and stringy and gross. As long as I've been growing out my hair, I had to say goodbye to about 4 inches (btw my sister is in beauty schoo, I wouldn't let her cut it otherwise). Then, I had lunch with one of my friends that I haven't seen in forever. Sunday evening, I did Christmas with my dad's side of the family. Monday I had a doctor's appointment, then I finally headed home. BUSY I tell you. I'm kinda glad that the craziness is over, but then again I'm not. Part of me loves being that busy!


  1. Ahh, that sweater is ridiculously adorable, and it looks so so perfect with colored denim and riding boots.


  2. Okay, yeah that sweater is the cutest! It seems like you were very busy, but the best kind of busy!

  3. That is the best kind of busy! You looked amazing in that dress!

  4. This is super fun. My dad used to make us eat black eyed peas.. yuck. Chinese for the win! :) Your friend's wedding looked awesome via IG - I can't wait for my close friends to get married someday. :) XO -Alexandra

  5. What an adorable look!! Please link up with Fab Five Fridays!

  6. That's why I can't try Le Tote, too much temptation to keep! You look adorable.

  7. Oh my gosh, I love that sweater! I'm a little obsessed with owls. I definitely need to get my hair done too. It REALLY needs cut and colored. I wish my sister would have stuck with beauty school because then I could just have her do it! lol

  8. Great blog♥

    I follow your blog. Waiting for you♥

  9. That sweater is adorable! I could see you wearing it a lot if you were to keep it! You could just style it like you would a graphic tee. But regardless, I know you're all about the bargains! Chinese takeout on New Years Day sounds like a great tradition! Much better than black eyed peas and cabbage... haha And I'm pretty sure you best friend's wedding tops it all for excitement!

  10. Sounds like you've had a busy start to 2015! All looks like fun! I love your owl sweater and how you styled it! I have a similiar one and I always feel like I have to wear my big glasses while wearing it. Just seems like they are meant for each other!


  11. Loved following along with the wedding festivities through insta! Looks like you guys had a blast, and the wedding was soooooo pretty. You all looked fab! I haven't been in a wedding yet but this year THREE of my best friends are getting married. So, I just can't wait for all of that :)

    also- I love the song "Fancy" and always sing that when I get my hair done, nails done, etc.

    ♥ perfectly Priya
