{outfits} This Week in Fashion

Happy Friday before Christmas! We're in the home stretch now! I have quite a busy weekend planned. Tonight starts our official movie watching as a family. We have a schedule for the last few days, but the weeks leading up we watch whatever movies we feel like.  Tonight is It's a Wonderful Life. Then tomorrow I'm headed to my Aunt's and Sunday I'm going to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. I was supposed to go last Saturday but the snow ruined it.  Sunday night we're watching Holiday Inn & White Christmas, two of my favorites. But, my absolute favorite (the whole family's actually) is saved for the 23rd: Scrooge with Albert Finney. It's a musical - if you haven't seen it... DO IT! I have to work on Monday, but hopefully it won't be too crazy. Then I'm off Tuesday and Wednesday and it's back to work on Thursday. BUT we get to work from home until January 2nd when we're due back a the office!

You'll notice a big change in my photos this week. I got a hair makeover for one of the websites at work (I'll post the link when the feature is live). I was hoping for an Emma Stone look (like this) but it turned out a little shorter than I was expecting so it's taking a little time to adjust. I'm not fond of short hair on myself but it does look cute when it's curled. The problem is - I don't know how to do it myself! I didn't wash my hair for as long as I could so the original curls would last.  Guess I have a mission over the next few weeks - find an affordable and easy to use curling iron, and learn how to use it. A co-worker told me to get the Beachwaver, and others recommend a curling wand. But those are all a bit expensive so I might end at Target or I'll see if I can get lucky and find something for a great price at Marshalls.

Monday: Blazer: Etro (Roundabout Resale), Tee: Everlane, Jeans:  Free People, Boots: Eighteen68 'Megan' (Gilt),  Necklace c/o Anjolee, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Rings: vintage, Brilliant Imports snake ring & Mom's
Tuesday: Sweater: Madewell (Shopbop), Jeans: Genetic Denim c/o Piperlime, Boots: Grandma's, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Necklace: Francesca's, Rings: vintage, Brilliant Imports snake ring & Mom's
Wednesday: Sweater: French Connection (Marshalls), Jeans: Jolt (Marshalls), Flats c/o Joie, Necklace c/o O Necklace, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Rings: vintage, Brilliant Imports snake ring & Mom's
Thursday: Sweater: Stella McCartney (The Outnet), Leggings: H&M, Socks: Marshalls, Boots: Eighteen68 'Megan' (Gilt),  Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Rings: vintage, Brilliant Imports snake ring & Mom's

Also, I've been trying out a new fragrance this week thanks to my position as a Harper's Bazaar Style Ambassador!  It's called The One by Dolce & Gabanna and it is available at ShopBazaar.com! It is a Limited Edition fragrance for women in a polished gold bottle with notes of mandarin, lychee, peach, a base of lily, and finished with a touch of warm. It definitely has potential to become one of my signature scents!

  11. Love the hair, a new haircut can be scary (for me at least) but you look really great:) My favourite outfit is the second one, and for shoes of course the tiger pattern flats! The one is actually one of my favourite perfumes, but I have the 'normal' one, I wonder if these one smells different - I can't tell from the ingredients? (the packaging is nicer haha)
