Have I mentioned that Veronica Beard is one of my favorite designers?  I love her clothes!  She makes some of the coolest every day classic pieces that aren’t too dressy, but have just the right amount of style.  She is known for designing pieces that have the illusion of layering, but not the bulk.  I wore this while we were in South Carolina last week and it traveled so perfectly!  I also wore it to work with flat over the knee boots and it was so comfy!  The top is super lightweight, so it’s perfect for a warmer climate, or you could put a tight fitting long sleeve tee or tank underneath for added warmth.

Anyone who knows me, knows I hate washing my hair.  In all honesty, I wash it once a week, sometimes twice.  Aside from the fact that I just don’t like doing it, my hair won’t hold a curl on the first day that I wash it anyway.  I mean, it will if I spend some time dirtying it up, but it kind of defeats the purpose.  My hair is naturally straight and flat, so I use the Drybar Southern Belle to help give it some lift at the roots.  I usually wash it and wear it straight for a day or two and after that, I curl it and style it, and it holds soooo much better!  That is secret #1.

I love a good chunky, oversized sweater and wish I got to wear them more.  It was definitely chilly when we were in South Carolina, so layering and chunky sweaters were in full swing!  Here is one of my outfits of the day while we were there.  If you live in a much cooler climate, I would suggest layering a long sleeve tee or at least a cami underneath.  These camis here are my all time favorite!

In downtown Spartanburg, there is an ice skating rink that they’ve put up for the last several years.  Every time I’m in town, I want to try it!  This is about as close as I got this time, which was taking pics in front of it haha!  The downtown area is so cute now, and really has come a long way!  There are so many adorable shops and restaurants compared to the way it was when I was growing up there.  We took so many photos in this area and hardly ever left!  It was so different to see be in a winter climate, but I loved it and really have missed it.  I could go back all the time during the winter!

I love a fun sweatshirt!   I thought it would be fun to mix the light pink with camo to give it an edgy/girly look.  Like I said before, the sweatshirt is very oversized.  I would normally wear an XS, so this one is definitely generous.  It would also be adorable with leggings and booties or sneakers to give it a more street style look.  The camo jeans run TTS though, as well as the boots.  It’s been so chilly in Spartanburg this week, so I apologize in advance for the over-wearing of my OTK boots ha!  They really are the best boots ever!  I went crazy at Nordstrom this year and got a few new colors.  So glad I have them now!

When I saw this sweater, I knew I had to have it!  I love that it’s all one piece, and that you get the layered look without adding bulk that layering can cause.  I would say the sweater runs a little on the trim side.  I got my usual size, and it fits perfectly but snug.  If you want a looser fit, I would size up.  The skirt runs TTS and isn’t too short.  I pulled it up a little so it would look proportional with my all time favorite and so comfy OTK Boots!  If you can invest in these, I highly recommend them.  I’ve had mine for 3 years now and still wear the heck out of them!  They are available in sizes 4-12, so literally a size for everyone.  If you want some OTK’s and don’t want to break the bank, the Sam Edelman ones are super cute and comfy too and available in sizes 5.5-11!

Did you know that every time you purchase eyewear from DIFF, they participate in an initiative where they give a pair of reading glasses to someone in need?  I think it’s an amazing thing to be able to give back or help someone out when they’re in need and love doing it whenever/wherever I can.  These sunnies fit so well and aren’t too oversized!  They’re also the perfect 2 tone with the gray and gold combo.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!  I was off work and had an amazing day of R&R, and then a casual dinner with friends.  It was the best!  Our good friends, Stephanie and James, have 2 kids and we’ve known them for a long time now.  It was so great to be with them.  I swear time goes by so fast and they grow up too quickly!

Throughout this week, I’m going to have New Year’s Eve outfits on the blog for you guys.  These looks will also be perfect for anything on the fancier side that you have to go to in these upcoming cooler months.   I think it can be difficult to dress up when it’s cold out, but these outfits will be perfect!
