Russ graduated from one of the local universities with his MBA a couple years ago. We've gone to a handful of basketball games every year and this year decided to buy season tickets. They happened to play my alma mater this past weekend. Out of respect for him, I decided not to wear my colors, but I could not bring myself to wear his. I went neutral, green to be exact. You better believe I knew who to cheer for though! We even made it on the kiss cam!
Have you ever heard of Packed Party? I discovered it on social media. Don't you just love when that happens? Essentially it is a service that allows you to send a hand-picked themed party to someone you love to let them know you care. Breakup? They've got you covered with a hysterical set of gifts to send a friend for laughs including my personal favorite, brass knuckles. Want someone to really understand how much you appreciate them? Send the beautiful thank you set. Birthdays, Bridesmaids, or just general celebrations, they've got it all. I love this idea. I am a giant fan of hand written notes as a way to let people know I care about them. This is like that on steroids. I mean, can you imagine coming home to a packed party package on your doorstep? How fun?! I was pretty pumped when they were kind enough to send me their Miss You package.
I can't seem to quit wearing my over the knee boots. The funny thing is I almost didn't buy them because I was afraid they wouldn't get worn enough. They make my pencil and midi skirts perfect for winter without tights. I wore this particular outfit to church and then to our family Christmas. How cute is this little street with all the wreaths and lights?!
The Real Arnolds (Me!)
As I mentioned, I have been really into black and white lately. It seems to be an easy combination that still feels chic. I paired my over the knee boots with a black and white sweater skirt from Forever21 (similar for $14) and an old Gap black turtleneck.
I'm excited to be sharing my second holiday look with Sage on the blog today! Kenna, the owner at Sage, is seriously the best. She was kind enough to send me over the gorgeous mixed metals dress you saw Monday and today's outfit. I totally love it because it's more casual, yet still really special. Could you just die over how cool these coated skinny metallic jeans are?! Although they would go with anything in your closet and create a cool look for a Christmas party, I paired them with the leather front top for a monochrome look. You're in luck, both of these pieces are on sale! What are you wearing this season? I'm all about metallics.
When Anjolee contacted me with the opportunity to partner with them, I jumped at the chance. Diamonds are a girl's best friend after all. They were kind enough to send me a CZ replica of their stunning diamond eternity band. I've hardly had it off my finger since it arrived. There is something about a little extra bling that just boosts a girl's spirits.
