Holiday Heels

IMG_1287

The bronze heaven gates have opened and these little angels fell from above and landed on my feet. My feet couldn’t be happier and they couldn’t not be more prepped and ready for Holiday. They will make any outfit sparkle and shine. An all black outfit could use a little bronze madness and these bad boys would make the cut.  IMG_1276

When I first pulled these heels out the UPS box, Wyatt was the first one to be like “WOW! Those are so cool.” If a guy like him thinks these shoes are amazing then that speaks volume. I can always count on Wyatt to be honest with me when it comes to what I wear but what I love about me is that I don’t let what he thinks dictate what I wear. What I love about him is that he’s always SO supportive on what I wear, how I do my hair, and whatever else. He’s the cutest and I got his approval on these shoes which is cool. Cool beans. IMG_1279

I mean, check out that subtle crackled detail. These heels are kind of perfect in every way but just one. They are slightly uncomfortable but what high heel isn’t? We have to make sacrifices sometimes and the best sacrifices are those that involve looking good… even if your feet are dying.

Warm, Cozy and Glam Worthy

Hello there. I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday. It’s currently Saturday night and I’m obviously raising the roof. Not really, I’m sitting on the couch watching Saturday Night Live and eating cookie dough. This is my kind of Saturday night. Blogging in peace. The weather was shocking today. (Am I really talking about the weather? It must be time for bed.) It felt like a perfect summer day. Is it still January or what? I almost had to take off this cardigan, which would have been a major bummer because I just bought it and I’ve been so excited to wear it out. I have a feeling that this leopard print cardigan is going to be my “go to” cardigan. That kind of cardi that you throw over just about anything to keep you feeling cozy and warm. The material feels better than your blanket, I can promise you that. I could fall asleep in it and honestly… I’m really tempted to do that right now considering I’m nearly dozing off as I’m typing this. I think the subtle glitter threaded into the cardigan really glams up any outfit. It took this plain shift dress and transformed it into a worthy look. If you’re the type of girl that enjoys wearing all black, I strongly recommend that you think about purchasing this fun cardigan. Throwing this little guy over an all black outfit is the perfect duo. I decided to pair tall socks with this look because I’m one white girl. ha! My legs haven’t seen the sun in months. Sorry if I’m blinding you. I should have warned you from the beginning to grab your sunglasses. My white legs are out of control.

Xoxo,

Karissa

2015…You’re gonna be a good one.

IMG_2828IMG_2818IMG_2847 IMG_2820 IMG_2821 IMG_2845 IMG_2825 IMG_2813 IMG_2795Happy New Year my lovely friends. I hope your year is full of happiness, growth, and love. I hope each and every one of you tries new things and conquers something on your check list. Let’s all continue to love more and smile more. We could all use it don’t you think? This world needs a little cup of tea. Tea is always soothing. If you’ve been wanting to start a blog…DO IT NOW. Don’t think too hard about the details, just type from the heart and you will never regret it. This blog has been the best thing to happen to me. Please continue to share my blog/Instagram/Twitter/ Facebook accounts with your friends. The more to my blog family the better.

One thing that 2014 taught me is that it’s okay to not be in control. I’ve tried to manage all aspects of my life and when something didn’t go as planned…I would panic and blame myself.  I’m not the writer of my story. I have to breathe a little more and let things fall into place sometimes. There’s no rush. If something is meant to be, it will be. Every year I get stronger and weaker all at the same time. It’s part of life. I’m not completely happy with where I’m at in life, I have a lot to work on but I’m not making false promises to myself this year. No resolutions. I will work hard on my downfalls but I’m done punishing myself. I deserve to love me, right? Everyday is a struggle to do that but I will love who I am one day. 2015 is another year of recovery but also a year for self acceptance. More baths. More hot cocoa. More therapy. More friends. More wine. More walks. More sleep.

2015…You’re gonna be a good one.

Xoxo,

Karissa
