Good morning and happy holidays! I hope y'all's week has been lovely and if you celebrate Christmas, then you received lots of awesome things! Mine was great and it has been so nice spending time with my family! I am currently blogging in the airport while waiting for my flight! The family and I are going to warmer, sunnier climates! Have a great week and a super sparkly New Years! XO

Some days just require a costume change!

Sunday, December 22, 2013

Hello! Yesterday was so busy, but fun so I didn't have time to post my outfits. I really just hung out with my family for most of the day and then we had family friends over for dinner, gift exchanges, and Home Alone. Home Alone is one of my favorite Christmas and probably one of my general favorites movie. It is absolutely hilarious and if you haven't seen it lately, I would really recommend it. I hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend!  I am so excited for this week because of Christmas (obviously), but we are also leaving on our trip and I am finally going to start packing for England! Wish me luck :) XO 

Outfit 1: 
Sunglasses, Flannel, Cardigan, Necklace: this necklace is old, but here are two pretty good options...option 1 option 2, Bracelet, Watch, Jeans, Shoes, Bag

Outfit 2:
Necklace, Shirt, Belt, Pants: I bought these at J.Crew and they were very difficult to photograph! They are a velvet/ suede material and have little blue polka dots! They are from J.Crew and I couldn't find them on the website but I would check your local store. Also here are two simple substitutes... option 1 option 2, Shoes- These are old Jeffery Campbell and absolutely fabulous! 

Two outfits and 70 degree weather

Friday, December 20, 2013

Hello! The family and I started the weekend early and headed to the cottage this morning. I am so excited for this weekend because we are having holiday dinners with friends tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday. It is going to be a very social weekend to say the least! Also, we are having record highs and tomorrow it is supposed to be in the mid-70s! I hope y'all have fun weekend plans and I would love to hear about them so comment or email me at leftylivinglife@gmail.com! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading! XO 

Outfit 1:
Sunglasses: These sunglasses make me feel like a movie star! Everyone needs at least one pair of fabulous sunglasses
Shirt: This is a great layering piece because it is short sleeves so stick out the bottom and the collar shows, but doesn't interfere with the sleeves
Sweater: OK, I picked up this fabulous detailed sweatshirt at J.Crew and it already is gone from the website! I would definitely check out the sale room at your J.Crew, but here are two other options...option 1 and option 2
Jeans: A great transition pair of jeans because they are cropped. 
Shoes: These ballet flats are insanely comfy and adorable 

Outfit 2:
Dress: I am still obsessed with this dress even though I have had for a while now! 
Cardigan: This cardigan is warm enough that I can use it as a layering piece, but still wear it year round! It is almost a daily part of my wardrobe. 
Necklace: Love this necklace for that extra oomph to any outfit
Belt: This belt is perfect because it is long enough to wear any where, but not too obtrusive. 

Red, stripes, and cheetah

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Good morning! Exams are finally over, I'm unpacked, and I was eventually able to find enough clothes to put together a cute outfit! I hope everything has been going well with y'all, everything has been absolutely fabulous with me :) my crazy semester is FINALLY over and I can not wait to leave for England- it is going to be absolutely amazing! I have to go finish wrapping presents now, but have a wonderful Thursday and maybe I'll see you tomorrow :) XO

Glasses: I just picked up these frames yesterday and I am already in love! They are absolutely amazing and I can't wait to wear them all the time :) 
Necklace: This necklace is old, but a definite staple in my wardrobe. It is so important to have one go-to and neutral statement necklace- option 1 option 2
Vest: Before this year, I had never really worn a vest, but this one is the perfect layer for those awkward weather days! 
Jacket: My jacket isn't from Zara, but they are a great store for classic shapes and pieces. Also, a great blazer can really perk up an outfit so I would definitely invest :) 
Shirt: A simple striped tee is vital for mixing patterns and layering
Jeans: I absolutely love these pants. I didn't think I would wear read pants all that often, but they are an amazing pop of color and so comfortable! 
Watch: My usual watch :)
Bracelet: Loving this bracelet I purchased from J.Crew earlier this year. I am definitely wearing it a lot! 
Shoes: I love shoes and cheetah print and these are insanely comfy. For more cheetah print, check out my cheetah print post here
Bag: My classic Kate Spade that I am definitely getting my money's worth out of!
