Navy Snow: Goodbye North Dakota

Headband: c/o BBT Style / Vest: Target-Girl's (similar) / Dress: Shop Hope's (similar)
Leggings: (similar) / Socks: Gordmans (similarsimilar)  / Boots: Kittsona (similarsimilar)

Well, if you are reading this post, we are now back in Arizona for good!
Even though I love my sunshine and warmth, I am bittersweet to share my last North Dakota post.
It was a time filled with so much love and happiness. We'll never forget a second of it!
For our last photo shoot, North Dakota did not disappoint! Cold temps and snow on the ground!
It was idyllic. The perfect way to say goodbye to our memorable time there.

I could not complete the North Dakota chapter without giving a shout out to BBT Style
It is a North Dakota-based company that has had their headbands featured on The Voice! 
Their beautiful detailing is exquisite. This headband is absolutely perfect for the holidays. 
Be sure to check out their amazing hair accessories here
You can also check out their InstagramFacebookTwitter, and Pinterest.

I don't know about you, but I love a great elbow-detailed sweater!
This Shop Hope's dress is currently sold out, but this dress is similar (a tad pricier though). 
This fall and winter season has also been all about the faux fur vets! 
My vest is from the girl's section of Target, but this vest is very similar as well. 
To keep my legs and toes nice and toasty, a great pair of leggings, some cozy socks, and some combat boots are just what the winter doctor ordered! My feet were warm and cozy all day long!

We are sad to see North Dakota go because of all our fun friends and memories,
but we are eager and excited to be back in Arizona with our family and friends!

All That Glitters...

Top: BCBG via Le Tote / Leggings: Shop Hope's (black version)
Boots: Kittsona (similarsimilar) / Scarf: Aldo / Earrings: Shop Hope's (similarsimilar)

I have a serious love affair with sequin pieces this year!
These Shop Hope's leggings do not disappoint. We also have them in black
To go with these gorgeous sequin leggings, I wore a super soft BCBG top via my Le Tote box. 
To make this look a bit more rugged, I chose to wear a pair of brown, combat boots.
I like this pair from Shop Hope's, as well as this pair from Macy's.
The entire look could not be complete without a cream scarf and some gold, dangly earrings.
Girly, yet rugged! Absolutely loved this look!

Pajama Party Collaboration

Today, I am collaborating with one of the sweetest girls in the world!
I want to introduce you to Emily of I Do Declare.

We thought we would throw a "Pajama Party" with each other.
I don't know about you, but many of my pastimes consist of girly nights eating sweets, talking about boys, and applying scads of nail polish and makeup on one another. They are wonderful memories!
Who said a girl is ever too old for a sleepover! Am I right?!

PS: Sorry for the not so exciting photos...we are in the midst of moving!

Pillowcase: c/o Savvy Sleepers / Shirt: Target (similarsimilar
Leggings: Target / Leg Warmers: Three Bird's Nest 

Im my opinion, anything cozy and soft qualifies as pajamas!
These Target leggings are just way too cozy for words. They come in a variety of prints and colors.
Add your favorite comfy tee, some cozy socks or leg warmers, and you're set!

Don't forget about your pretty little head too!
Savvy Sleepers sent me their Luxury, Anti-Aging Sating Pillow Case in the color "Nappuccino."
These pillow cases will change your life. Literally.
Your skin and hair will be oh so happy!

Did you know that sleeping on satin results in smoother skin and helps prevent wrinkles?!
It also protects your hair from breakage and damage!
I urge you to give Savvy Sleeper a try today. It has changed my hair and skin!

Now on to the girlishness!
Who remembers lying awake with your girlfriends asking each other questions about life?
Well, we thought we would share some of our favorite sleepover questions!

Next, I brush my teeth and hair.
That's about it!

The Beauty Blender. It'll change your life.

Q: Favorite color nail polish to wear?
In the fall and winter I love anything dark and matte.

Plaid, Stripes, and Leopard

Headband: Three Bird's Nest (similarsimilar) / Vest: Target Girl's Section (similarsimilar)
Top: Bebe Dress (similarsimilar) Skirt: Gift-Unknown (similarsimilar) / Tights: Target
Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar) / Necklace: Viva La Jewels

This season has been all about print mixing!
Stripes, plaid, leopard, polka dots...
The more mixtures, the better!
For this look, I went with a striped top, plaid skirt, and a tiny bit of leopard on this vest.
It's pretty chilly here, so I added some tights, ankle booties, and a warm headband to cover my ears.
I absolutely adore the headbands from Three Bird's Nest. They are the cutest!
I also added a little sparkle with my favorite Viva La Jewels necklace
This is such a sweet, yet sporty look!

Have a sweet and special day my loves!
