2016 Pantone Colors

At the end of the year, I love finding out next years Pantone Color of the Year…. Β This year wasnt a let down for me. For the first time, Pantone introduced two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016.Β I put together some of my favorite finds for this years fabulous colors!!! Everything is linked below:

2016 Pantone Color

 


Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
I was so excited to find out that one of my favorite shades, Rose Quartz, was 2016’s next big thing! I am an accessory hoarder, especially with jewelry and I adore anything with Rose Quartz. As far as Serenity, I am not a huge fan of light blue but when you pair it with the right tones, it works!!! I love the fact that they are both softer colors which is perfect for Spring!
I hope you are loving these fabulous colors as much as I am!!!
What are some of your favorite shades/hues this year?

Golden Globe Favorites

Another year, another award show! The Golden Globes is one of my favorite award shows as far as the celebrity guest list. I love the fashion, presenters and the talent that is always in the room. If you missed it last night, it was probably one of the best awards shows I have watched in awhile.

Amy Shumer and Jennifer Lawrence are probably my favorite duo of 2016…..

Eva Longoria and America Ferrera were hilarious about introducing themselves with their correct titles. Being called other actresses names who look very similar isnt always a bad thing since they are all smoking hott!!! πŸ™‚ Eva’s dress was one of my favs also….

The skits were pretty funny but the acceptance speeches were even better!!!

Tarajj P won Best Actress for Drama series and let everyone know she was going to take her time thanking everyone lol…. She also passed out cookies to everyone on her way to the stage in honor of her name on the show…. Love her! πŸ™‚

I honestly did not see one fashion flaw or dress that I did not like… Everyone was dressed to the nines and looked amazing! I did have my favs for sure….

I am OBSESSED with Kate Winslet at all times!!!! She is flawless no matter what she wears or what she is doing…. I am a HUGE Titanic fan so seeing her just makes me happy! And seeing her with Leonardo makes me even more happy πŸ™‚

Speaking of Titanic…. my total obsession last night was Leonardo Dicaprio!!!!! I mean, you can not get more perfect than this…

Everyone is talking about how he looked at Lady Gaga when she walked up to the stage for her award… This was actually pretty funny but some people did not think so :/

leo

To me, it looked like she was being a little flirty trying to get by and he didn’t know how to react. His acceptance speech for Best Actor made me love him even MORE!!!

What a show….. There were so many more awesome moments but these were my favorites of the night!

What were some of your favorite moments? Who’s dresses did you just obsess over?

December Fashion

Wow! We are almost through our first full week of January and first work week of the year! It feels good to be back in routine mode and getting the year started. I start to get super ancy pants when we are out of routine and there is no plan or agenda. Trust me I love long, much needed breaks but I am so used to routine and structure it gives me anxiety when there is no agenda πŸ™‚

Back to reality and back to keeping up with my weekly outfit recaps. I love sharing outfits and awesome deals and steals I find with you. As far as trends and styles, I love a little bit of everything. I LOVE mixing prints and pairing different colors and pieces together. Β My outfits consist of comfy/casual to sparkly/blingy and a touch of southern/edgy. I made these up as I dont really have one favorite style but I try to change it up everyday!

Here are some of my favorite outfits from December:

Scarf: Charming Charlies

Kate Space cup: Swoozies (Dallas)

This is the most comfortable sweater I have ever owned! I found it at Charlotte Russe during a Christmas sale for $20! I have linked it below…. And my clutch was a super find at Old Navy during the Christmas sales for $10!!! Β (Please excuse the messy bun, this was the result of a screaming toddler not wanting to go shopping)

Sweater: Charlotte Russe

Leggings: Target

Clutch: Old Navy

Shoes: Steve Madden

I am hoping to continue sharing my outfit inspiration and all of the goodies I find every week.

I would love to know what trends and styles you are loving right now?

New Years Masquerade Party!

IMG_3320

HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!

I am slightly still recovering from the new years and the holidays. I might be the only one who was ready to go back to work and I am ok with that…. Being home with a four year old boy for 2 weeks wore me out! By Sunday, I literally chugged a whole bottle of wine and locked myself in the bathroom for 10 minutes of silence!! I am so obsessed with my kid but I have never been more exhausted than after this break…. But, we did have an AWESOME New Years!

We decided to change it up a little and have a masquerade party at a friends house…. I LOVE dressing up and being festive!

I still had to rock the sequins and sparkle for New Years! I got this skirt from Amazon over Black Friday when it was on sale. Top is from Forever 21 and necklace is Mirina Collections.

I think I was more excited to meet my friends new baby because I have super bad baby fever at the moment… We do not want any more kids so I have to get my baby fix every now and then.

Our masks were the hit of the party – I kept calling my husband the “Mexican Phantom” lol πŸ™‚

As you can see…. He had some fun playing the Phantom!

I wish I would of taken more pictures but we were having too much fun. We originally were not going to plan anything for New Years because Christmas was so exhausting but we knew we needed a night out together. Having two kids is tiring and exhausting but you gotta keep the dates nights fun and exciting! I hope you had a great New Years and awesome start to 2016!

What are some highlights from your holiday break?
