I recently had a watercolor portrait painted of my little family and have had TONS of messages on Instagram asking info.  I used Ash and Boot and couldn't love this piece more!

I am completely and utterly in love with leather pants! Like maybe a little TOO much! I wear them year round with tshirts, suit jackets or a fun top. 
I am asked ALL of the time where I get my leather leggings and since I have quite the collection, I just give my favorites. 
My ALL-TIME top pair are Hue faux leather leggings! I bought them from Nordstrom and now have more than 1 pair. They have an elastic waist (who doesn't love that) and look just like an actual pair of pants. The texture is classic and not cheap like many faux items are. I love them with flats, booties and even a cute pair of Chuck Taylors. 
All pairs above are under $150 and would be the perfect staple item in your closet! You can't go wrong with a little leather

Miss to Mrs

I am getting married in 10 months, so everything WEDDING related is on my mind.
Having said that, I also know lots of other little brides-to-be who are excited for their big day this year, too! 
I always love to get my engaged friends a little something special to celebrate this fun time. I have put together a little collection of  bridal gifts that are sure to make anyone's day!

Sorry, but this may possibly be the CUTEST little cupid niece of all time! I'm also slightly jealous of her donut leggings....

For Your GALentine!

For Your GALentine!

As Carrie Bradshaw said "maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates and guys are just people to have fun with".  I LOVE Matt dearly, but my friends are my heart!
Whether it's your besties, mom or sister, I ALWAYS suggest having a GALentine's Day!
This year I plan on having my mom, sister and niece (my favorite girls) over for cookie decorating and champagne (juice for Madden).
The gifts above are all so fun and girly! The perfect little surprises for a day celebrating the gals!

Our wedding photographer, Amanda Lassiter, is AMAZING to say the very least! Here are a few of my favorites from our engagement session! Needless to say...I am READY to get this show on the road and be married! November 18th can't get here quick enough! Be prepared to see lots of wedding inspired posts this year in preparation for my big day!

I went to Target one day and it's Christmas galore and then the next day and it's Valentine's! Which is totally fine with me b/c I believe that holidays help us look forward to something special. 
I LOVE Valentine's Day, especially for the colors! All shades of pink, red and gold. It's such a girly holiday and I think it's perfect!
I am 32 years old and my mom STILL gets us me a Vday gift every year. I also exchange gifts with friends for "Galentine's Day" and of course with my love (who obviously won't be getting anything girly. ha).
I have put together an awesome list of my Valentine favs above! I'm sure any sweetheart would go wild over! 
I also recommend adding flowers and champs to any of these gifts :)
