Winter White-Out


I don't give these white jeans enough credit, they are beautiful and can be styled perfectly all year long!

Today was a not-so-cold winter day, so I opted for a look that showed a little more skin! I couldn't wait to rock my tie-front black and white polka dot top from Sans Souci, so I threw it on and paired it with my white denim from Bluefaith. Some over-the-knee boots completed this winter look, and I kept the colors light around the top to balance out the look and make this adorable top stand out!

While putting together this outfit I was thinking of so many other ways I could style this top! It would look cute tied over a dress, a bodycon skirt, or a flowy maxi skirt as well. I definitely think that's how I'll style it next!

Holiday Party Snack Must-Haves!



When it comes down to the holidays, I can talk about a lot more than just a cute outfit. I know all of the best holiday music, movies, and snacks, too! Those three together make for a perfect holiday party, and right now I'd love to focus in on a snack that I've brought to the table as one of my favorites for this holiday season.


This little snack is the Craize arepa crisp, a light, thin wafer that is so very thin but so very flavorful. This is a great treat all year long, but being the fan of hummus that I am, this has become my favorite snack pairing for any hummus dish! This holiday season I've paired my favorite two Craize cracker flavors, seeded and sweet, on a plate with veggies and fruits as a variety of treats to snack on! My friends and family are already obsessed too, and thankfully I had a few extra containers handy on me because they all went home with my loved ones as their newfound favorite thin wafer treat!




The Craize crips come in six different flavors, sweet, which is a sweet corn taste, platano, a sweet plantain crisp, seeded, made with a variety of textured grains and seeds, guava, which simply put is a very sweet guava crisp, coconut, a coconut crisp that I found so delicious the containers I received didn't even make it in time for the photos, and roasted, a more savory corn crisp. They are all delicious in their own way, but as I previously mentioned, the coconut crisps were hands down the absolute best!

What makes these treats even better is that they're guilt free. They're vegan, gluten free, kosher, and soy free! All of the ingredients included can be pronounced, which is key in my diet! I am a huge snacker and try to be conscious of the things I'm really eating, and these tasty treats are made with clean, fresh foods, and no artificial mess! I really recommend you all pick some up and serve them at your holiday parties, your guests will truly thank you for it!

A Plaid Piece to Make Your Winter Wardrobe Complete


Every winter I look forward to many things, but one thing in particular that I can't wait for is to wear plaid. Is that crazy?! Truth is, I am just mad for prints and plaid has always been a print that I love for so many reasons.


First reason being that you can buy any color variation of this print! Lighter color plaids, darker color plaids, it's all amazing. It also styles perfectly with different colors and textures, and can be worn so many different ways. Today I wore my plaid pants here from Sans Souci with a detailed sweater, one of my favorite vintage jackets that I thrifted a few years ago, and my timeless little lace-up booties that have been seen on this blog so many times... and no, I will never retire them!




Like my little old booties, I revisited some other old accessories that have been featured in my outfits a time or two and that I will never tire of, my vintage Dooney & Bourke bag (which I'll never quite be sure if it's authentic or not), and my little black hat here! This outfit is one of my favorites in quite sometime that's for sure. Most of the outfits that I style I think are cute, but some just have something about them that stand out and are incredibly eye-catching to me. For this one, I believe it's the mixture of colors and textures. And the fact that I ROCKED those trendy grandpa pants! All jokes aside though, they're pretty cool and I've been wanting a pair for quite some time now. They will without a doubt be making a few appearances at some upcoming holiday parties!
