Sugar Plum Perfection to Ring In The New Year

| Photos | Kate Davis Photo

I'm putting my sequins to the side for a moment and ringing in the New Year wearing this gorgeous "Sugar Plum" floral dress from Dainty Jewell's.  This dress is hands down one of the MOST gorgeous, MOST unique dresses I have ever worn.

The rich plum color, the embellished floral fabric, the high waistline, the pleats, the sleeves, the length, the semi mandarin collar, the fit, the shape...SWOON and SWOON some more!

Can you tell how much I adore this dress?!

This dress is a classic beautiful piece that can be worn for so many different occasions...New Year's Eve for example, a wedding, a formal, a black tie event, a charity ball, a social, brunch, church...and on and on.  You get the picture!

To complete my New Year's Eve look, I've added these gorgeous metallic gold leather earrings from Nickel & Suede, these stunning bangles from Bronzallure, and this aubergine quilted Stella Satchel!

So...what will you be doing to ring in the New Year?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Camel Cape Coat

If you have been looking for the perfect camel cape coat, search no further!  This "Emerson Camel Cape Coat" from L. Mae Boutique is such a classic beautiful piece that can be worn over lighter pieces such as this thin turtleneck I'm wearing (p.s under $12) or layered over sweaters for more warmth this winter.  Plus this coat is one of those pieces that will remain a stylish go-to piece in your wardrobe from year to year...totally worth the small investment!

I personally love camel and black paired together...its such a classic color combo and I've finished off this look with a touch of cheetah here and there as well as some gorgeous leather bracelets.  This gorgeous gold leather bracelet is from Nickel & Suede and this fun black leather half hook bracelet is from Allison Cole Jewelry.

How would you style this camel cape coat?!

Thanks so much for stopping by...hope you either have, will be, or maybe still are enjoying some time off for the holidays!  I'm off all this week, YAY, and will be spending some quality time with our littles before getting into the full swing of a new year!  Seriously, where did 2015 go?!

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

| Photos | Catherine Truman Photo

It's that time to disconnect for just a bit and enjoy the most beautiful gift God could have ever given sweet little family.  They are in fact the ONLY present I will ever need.

As I reflect on what Christmas means, my heart is filled with so much love and gratitude.  We are rich in love and faith...I feel so blessed to have been gifted this life and the opportunity to play such an important role in the lives of my Husband and of our children.

I want to extend my thanks and gratitude to all of you as well...I'm able to do something that I love because of the support that so many of you have so graciously given to me.  Your kind words and encouragement mean the world to me...THANK YOU!

Today, I'm sharing my most precious gift with family.  I think you can see why I absolutely adore them, they are pretty amazing. ;-)

From my family to yours...Merry Christmas and God bless!

Holiday Beauty Essentials with Scentbird Perfume + 25% Off

I'm packing up my beauty bag with a few of my essential must have items!  I've included some of my favorite beauty products that I can't function without (well really I could but I don't want to, ha) and I've also included my Scentbird Perfume, which just happens to be the perfect travel size too!

If you haven't heard of Scentbird, they are a monthly perfume subscription service that enables you to find scents that you love.  You can try a new scent every month!  What I love most about Scentbird is that you don't have to commit to a large bottle of perfume but instead you can have a variety of scents to use.  I don't know about you, but when I wear the same perfume day in and day out, I get kind of bored with the scent.  Not with Scentbird...because I can try any perfume that I would like, I'm always able to mix up the scents that I wear on a daily's pretty awesome!

AND, Scentbird is offering my supporters a great discount if you sign up for their subscription service!  Enjoy 25% off with code KBS25!  It's time to treat yourself my friends!

Vintage Floral with Karina Dresses

Blue vintage floral, knee length, wrapped waistband, slightly flared skirt and made with lots of love right here in America!  Just a few things that describe this gorgeous "Rita" dress from Karina Dresses.

Karina Dresses offers several different dress styles to suit every body type and this particular style is perfect for an hourglass body shape.  Not only do I love the fit but I also love this rich floral print, which is perfect for this time of year.

Now that we are officially in the winter months all you need to do is throw on a pair of knee high boots, a chunky sweater or a leather jacket & scarf and viola, you are dressed for the cooler temps!  As you can imagine, you can dress this up or dress it down as much as you would like.  It's perfect for so many different occasions too!

Do you also wear florals during the winter months?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great day!

Holiday Survival Kit with Hanes

It's crunch time y'all...Christmas is just a few days away!   As wonderful as the holidays can be, sometimes it can be stressful too.  Checking your list, checking it twice, and if you are like me...checking it a third, fourth, and fifth time.  Not to mention, the holidays often times mean racing here, racing there, and racing everywhere!  

When life is this busy, sometimes we go into survival mode so with that in mind, I've put together a little holiday survival kit with Hanes today.   When I picked items for my survival kit, I picked those items that I either can't go a day without lately as well as items that I am wearing all of the time right now.

With the weather being much cooler (and let's be honest, my legs being much whiter) bare legs just don't seem as appropriate right now.  Plus I always need a little extra support when dressing up in skirts & dresses for the holidays.  So naturally I've included these Hanes Firm Control Power Shapers in my survival kit.  I love being able to cover my legs, receive extra support around my tummy and tush, all the while wearing hosiery that doesn't scream hosiery if you know what I mean?!   

A few other things that I included in my survival kit are those pieces such as my favorite sunnies & gloves that I wear nearly every day as well as a black tulle skirt (perfect for all of the holiday festivities) as well as my favorite pair of cheetah print heels that I wear both dressed up and dressed down!

Tell me what is in your holiday survival kit this year?!  Is there anything that you HAVE TO HAVE to survive the holidays?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you are taking some time off to enjoy family and friends this week!

Thank you to Hanes for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

Getting Cozy with Lake Pajamas

| Photos | Kate Davis Photo

Nothing could be more comfortable than these Pima cotton jammies from LAKE Pajamas!  I'm pretty picky about my jammies and I can tell you that these have exceeded all of my expectations.

What I love most about these beautiful striped jammies is that they are soooooo incredibly soft.  Truly the most comfortable pj's I've ever worn.

LAKE Pajamas has a few different styles that you can select from and all of their sets feature this clean classic stripe.  These would make a perfect gift for that special someone who loves jammies/loungewear.

With Christmas right around the corner, I'll be spending a good bit of time lounging and relaxing in my new pj's!  And if I had it my way, I would just stay in them all day every day.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...Happy Friday and cheers to the weekend!

Grey Sweater Duster Vest - Muse Boutique Nashville

| Photos | Catherine Truman Photo


This grey duster sweater vest from Muse Boutique here in Nashville has become one of my latest obsessions...I just can't get enough of it!  The quality is excellent, it is super versatile, and so fun to wear!  

As I am writing this, I actually have it on!  I've also paired this duster vest over a tan colored tunic top and some charcoal colored denim.  Use your imagination and run with this one because the options are really endless!  The best part, it is under $50...only $44 and for the many ways that you can wear this, you will well get your monies me.

And how gorgeous is this necklace that I am wearing, also from Muse Boutique?!  I just love the subtle pop of color with the vibrant blue stone.

If you love this vest as much as I do, I definitely recommend snagging one while you can...there are only a few left!  You can order directly from Muse Boutique Nashville and they will ship it to you or you can of course pop into their store if you live locally!

To order, just call Muse Boutique Nashville at:
*ask for Alex (mention my name) and she will be more than happy to help you out!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...have a great day!
