Blogmas 2014 – Day 17: All That Glitters & Gold

Happy Blogmas Day 17!

Before jumping into today’s post, can we all just take a moment and let this sink in…

8daysuntilchristmas

I cannot believe how quickly this month is flying by! This next week is the fun part though…holiday parties!

I’ve been trying to put together some festive outfits for a few upcoming events & have been SO into pairing them with statement necklaces. I’m really drawn to the reds, greens, and blues this time of year, but I can’t swooning over all of the crystal & gold pieces!

Unable to choose just one favorite, I’ve hand picked 9 gorgeous crystal & gold statement necklaces from Bauble Bar to share today. If you’re on the hunt for a beautiful accessory this season (under $50!!!), you’ll definitely want to keep scrolling. –> 🙂

Fall Shoe Shopping

I did some serious Fall shopping a couple of weeks ago, included in that spree was some shoe shopping.  I went to Mandees; I hadn’t been there in a while, but they are always good for finding fabulous, and affordable shoes! Lucky for me, they were having a buy one, get one half off sale, so I decided to stock up for the season!

Let me start by sharing some depressing news…lately I’ve been having a harder time wearing heels, my feet just don’t enjoy them like they used to *MAJOR SIGH*. Not only do heels feel sexier and more fun than flats, but they give me an extra few inches to my already miniature 5′ .5″ self. While I’m not swearing them off altogether, I decided it was time to invest in some comfortable flats.

Fortunately, I found a few adorable pairs:

A simple brown suede
Black and gold alligator-esque shoes
Blue suede! I have actually been dying for a pair of blue suede shoes for a while!

Obviously during a BOGO, I couldn’t ignore the heels! So I picked up a few pairs that will serve me well.

Nude pumps- awful lighting 🙁
Black suede, double buckle Mary Jane-ish pumps. I am dying to pair these with black tights and a skirt ASAP!
Black pumps with a gold toe! I was drawn to these, I had to take them home with me 😉

Naturally I had to peruse the accessories…

I snagged this blue Nine West clutch with optional chain link strap
…And this gold plated necklace…as my roomie would say my “Walk Like an Egyptian” necklace LOL

Mandees had so many great pumps, flats and boots! I need to get back ASAP and pick up a few other pairs I had been eyeing… something about taking multiple trips to the same store, and making multiple purchases makes spending money not as bad.

What are you wearing on your feet this season? Let me know where you found some great Fall shoes!

PS: For the mani lovers, here are my most recent:

Started with Gelish “Skinny Vanilla Latte”…
…it was too light for the season so I ended up putting a couple coats of Gelish “Black Cherry Berry” on top 🙂

I just changed my polish color this afternoon…stay tuned for that pic! 😉

XOXO

I’m Going Nude!

Right now I am so obsessed, and inspired by all things nude and natural. Everything from neutral clothing and accessories, to natural hair and makeup! Sometimes less is more 🙂

(How freaking beautiful is Minka Kelly?!)
