Your Favorites of 2012

My most popular outfits of 2012

Well, you guys decided that these outfits were my most popular this year!  It's always fun to see what you liked most.  I feel like 2012 was such a great year.  I can't wait to see what 2013 brings and I'm really excited to share the next year with you as well.  Here are a few of my favorites:

New Beginnings


Are you ready for the new year?  Honestly, 2013 does seem a little daunting for me.  Kevin and I are (supposed to be) planning a wedding for April or May.  We are looking to own a home before the end of the year.  Plus, we plan on starting a family soon after the wedding.  It just feels like so much change for one year!  While I may be a complete creature of habit, I'm looking forward to the change that is coming... as long as we do it one step at a time :)

Make Me Swoon


Okay, I'm officially back from the whirlwind of celebrations I've had with my families.  I had the chance to be with my side of the family, Kevin's side (which will soon be my side as well), and we also got to celebrate both me and my little brother's birthday.  We happen to be 8 years and one day apart :).  This time of year is always crammed with events so it's almost a breath of fresh air to have it all behind me!  Is that bad?

Flock Together: Have A Heart

Hi guys!  Hope you all are enjoying the holidays with your family.  Just want to let you know that I'm blogging over at Flock Together today.  Rachel of Floral Prints and Common Sense was sweet enough to swap this amazing vintage dress with me and I'm excited to show you how I styled it.

Merry Christmas!

Hi there!  I just wanted to make a quick video and wish you all a happy holiday.  I feel so lucky to be able to celebrate another Christmas/birthday with my families and I hope you are doing the same.  Much love!

Pink Cupcake


I don't know if you can tell by this picture, but I'm pretty fond of polka dots :).  This dress was a birthday gift from Kevin.  I sent him a copy of my Modcloth wishlist, and out of the 50-something items on my list, this was his favorite.  I love the color, it reminds me of cupcakes for some reason.  And since Kevin and I are trying to tone up during the holidays, cupcakes are out of the question.  I'd rather look like one than eat one anyway!

Anxiously Awaiting


Well, Christmas is a mere five days away and you're either in one of two groups.  The crazed last minute shopper who is willing to fight the crowds for a great deal on some last minute gifts.  Or, you are sitting comfortably at home with everything under the tree.  I can happily say that I'm done with all my shopping and can now enjoy the little bit of holiday season we have left.

Bold As Love


You can't tell by the look of these pictures, but it was raining when I took them.  The past few days have been cold, rainy, and miserable but that's no excuse to dress down.  This dress from Debshops is a perfect piece to dress up or down without looking sloppy.  Today I chose to go a little on the dressy side with a few pops of color.  What do you think?

Like A Diamond


I really tried my hardest when it came to avoiding the malls and not purchasing anything for myself.  But when I was given a weekday off, I was overcome with temptation and an amazing deal!  I still hadn't decided what I wanted to wear to Kevin's company Christmas party this coming weekend and now I feel like I've found the one.  It was destiny!

Sweetest Downfall


I'm not going to lie, I totally went out of my comfort zone with this outfit.  Maybe not the outfit itself, but the boots with this outfit.  But I've been really inspired by Jenna of Smitten lately.  I love the way she pairs feminine outfits with her crazy cute studded boots.  So I went out on a limb and tried this look myself.  I may not have to deal with Canadian snow like she does, but I do my best to find an excuse to wear boots with dresses.  I think I love it!

Flock Together: Baby, It's Cold Outside

Hey guys!  I'm blogging over at Flock Together today.  Have you ever wanted to stretch your summer wardrobe into colder seasons?  Well I had the perfect opportunity to do that thanks to Hannah, the gorgeous woman behind The Braided Bandit.  She sent me a very cute polka dot dress that I had so much fun styling!   So did Jessica of Midwest Muse, who also showcases her rendition on the blog as well.

Can't Get Enough


Today is Sunday and the weekend has officially started for me.  I had to work yesterday and it was just one of those really rough days.  Even though I'm exhausted, overworked, and underpaid, I try my best not to complain.  I feel lucky to have a job and to be doing something that services the community.  So instead, I'm going to tell you about this ridiculously cute ombre dress that I borrowed from Jessica of Midwest Muse :)

Engagement Pictures

Hi there!  I know I've been talking about my engagement pictures for awhile now and I'm really happy that I can now share some with you here.  Our friend Nick Charrow took these pictures for us and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out.  I hope you enjoy!

Let the parties begin...

If you're even somewhat social like me (I only go out on the weekends) then you probably have a few parties to attend this holiday season.  Whether it's a work holiday party, family party, or New Year's Eve party, it can be really hard to put together an outfit on a whim.  And if you're like me, you probably need to spend as little as possible!  So here is my go-to holiday party outfit on a budget aka what I could put together from my closet :)

Take Me Out


I normally don't post brand new outfits the minute I get them.  Sometimes it takes me awhile to build around a specific piece... This Modcloth dress was not one of those cases.  I got this on Saturday (my one Black Friday purchase for myself) and I seriously didn't want to take it off!  I love the horse print and the fabric is really thick and sturdy.  Of course, I love the pockets and the full pleated skirt.  And it fits like a dream!
