Sweet Moments

001 Shopping areas and beautiful Christmas decorations

Sorry about my lack of posting over the past week. But I have such exciting news in that I got a new job in Hospitality! The waiting to hear back about the job was truly the worst week due to the stress that it brought over a job I really wanted. And then of course relief after I found out they hired me truly was one of my highlights of the year. I will be starting on Monday and am so excited to work in a new environment, a new job area, and with new people!

Ray-Ban Sunglasses, Macy’s Blouse, Zara Shorts, Heels, & Trench, Loeffler Randall Bag

This weekend was so chilly out that shorts probably weren’t the best idea, but when dressing up, it was a necessity. But I finally found the perfect pair of leather shorts that were a great price that didn’t break the bank, which is always good!

The Right Accessories

001

Calvin Klein Hat, Zara Sweater & Skirt, Chinese Laundry Flats, Vintage Belt, Calvin Klein Bag, MK Watch

I think the right accessories can make a plain outfit more exciting. A hat, belt, and purse is really all it takes (since I go very minimal with the jewelry). I stuck with classic black and brown to add to my white and blue ensemble.  002 003 004 005 006 007

Splurge or Save

D'orsay flats

I love the classic Jenni Kayne D’Orsay flats. But I think there are so many great options that are a great alternative to the price. I recently bough a pair of the Chinese Laundry Flats that look identical to the more expense version. Would you splurge or save on a pair of D’Orsay flats?

Oatmeal Cream Pies

005

Growing up, the Little Debbie snacks were certainly a favorite item of mine, along with many other snacks. But the oatmeal cream pies certainly satisfied that after dinner craving. This updated version has a buttercream filling that is so sweet with the oatmeal cookie that is so crumbly after heating it up in the microwave for a few seconds. It definitely is an improvement upon the simple snack at the end of the aisle in the supermarket!
