TGIF!!! I thought this week was never going to end!! I am so ready for this weekend! I have some fun Christmas activities planned that I am super excited about, but first I got to get my Christmas shopping done! It might be a late night ya'll! So if you're a procrastinator like me and need some last minute stocking stuffer ideas, I am here to help! Honestly, I think my favorite part of Christmas morning is looking to see what goodies I got in my stocking! I love getting new makeup or nail polish that I can wear for Christmas dinner or a new sparkly necklace! And if you are like my family, the boys always have to get some festive underwear in their stocking! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and don't forget today is the last day to enter the $300 Tory Burch giveaway, also there is still time to enter the $400 Nordstrom, $25 Mint Julep Boutique, and $75 White Plum giveaways! <3

Black Sweater Dress

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

orlando, florida fashion blogger styles bcbgeneration sweater dress with steve madden snakeskin heels and free people hat for a winter outfit

Happy Wednesday lovelies! Who else is kind of freaking out that Christmas is only one week and a day away?! I got a jump start on my Christmas shopping this year and then totally slacked on the other half! So much to do, so little time, even though I am excited about Christmas being so soon! Anyways, I have to admit I usually am not a big sweater dress fan, well at least not on myself. I love seeing them on others but, when I try on a sweater dress I feel like they are just not me, until I came across this one! The black, the large cowl neck, and the funky hemline, instant love! This dress is actually a top, but I double sized up and belted it to make the perfect sweater dress! Although, it would probably be super cute with a pair jeans and some heeled booties too! I wanted to go for an edgier look with all black, so I threw on my favorite floppy hat and then brightened it up with some fun gray and white heels. On another note, on behalf of Sugar Love Boutique thanking everyone for an amazing year, they are giving away a $100 gift card and all you have to do is follow them on Instagram! Boom done, entered! So easy right?! So be sure to check that out below and I hope everyone has a fabulous hump day! <3

Happy Tuesday ya'll! So how adorbs is this Mint Julep Boutique dress?! Right when I laid eyes on it I knew it was soooo me and I already knew exactly how I was going to style it! Does that ever happen to you? You look at a piece of clothing and the whole outfit just pops into your head? I love when that happens! Anyways, the dress is a tad on the longer side so I belted it to give it that perfect length and structure. Then, I threw on my taupe suede boots and accessorized them with gray knee socks. The Mint Julep Boutique has also been so kind to giveaway a $25 gift card to one luck reader! So be sure to enter below! With it being the home stretch before Christmas get ready for a lot of giveaways this week! ;) Also, don't forget about the $400 Nordstrom and $300 Tory Burch giveaways still going on!

Florida Winter Wear

Monday, December 15, 2014

orlando, florida fashion blogger styles cropped sweater, h&m coated denim, windsor boots for a casual winter outfit

Happy Monday loves!! Today I am excited to be teaming up with some fellow Florida gals to show you how we take on Winter wear! Dressing for the Winter in Florida can be a little difficult sometimes because one, it can be 40 degrees in the morning and by 1pm it can be in the 80s and two, it could just be in the 80s but yet you still want your wardrobe to still say hey, it's Winter time! The best way I like to dress in the Winter, when it is actually not Winter temps, is by wearing Winter textiles and accessories, but still staying cool at the same time. Here I am wearing this super fun Fevrie sweater (ps you can get 40% off your Fevrie purchase with code 'upbeatsoles'!), but yet it still keeps me cool because of the cropped length and shorter sleeves. How cute are the fingey sleeves too?! Then I paired it with some coated burgundy denim. Burgundy + coated denim = Hey maybe it really is Winter, right?! I accessorized with a beanie, amazing Rocksbox baubles, and some cut out booties. Perfect for this 70 degree weather we have been having! I love to get creative with my clothing during the Winter months even if it can be a little challenging! Make sure you check out all of my other Florida babes below to see their take on Winter and I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday! <3

Sweater Weather

orlando, florida fashion blogger styles h&m sweater with forever 21 keather skater skirt, dsw over the knee boots and rebbeca minkhoff crossbody for a casual fall outfit

Happy Friday Eve ya'll! We are almost to the weekend! So when I laid eyes on this amazing multi-colored knit H&M sweater I knew it had to be mine! I just love the chunky knit, and the shorter sleeves make it perfect for those warmer fall days. I paired it with a leather skater skirt to give this look more of a flirty feel, but then added some edge with my over the knee boots. To throw in some sparkle, I put on a fun statement necklace and then polished the look with my Rebecca Minkhoff quilted crossbody. I hope everyone has an amazing Thursday and don't forget to enter the $400 Nordstrom Giveaway! <3
