Y’all – there is only a week until Christmas! I can’t believe it! I am so excited to spend the holidays with my family, but I know it is going to be a PACKED week leading up to that. We just got back from a weekend in Pigeon Forge and Jeremy had to pry me out of the cabin. But can you blame me? The cabin had a fireplace, a hot tub, and quite a few bottles of wine – basically my three favorite things.

But time to pivot to getting ish done. And while mine (and everyone else’s) to-do lists are a mile long, there are so many things I love to do leading up to Christmas. If you haven’t already noticed, I wear all of the plaid and fair isle I can fit into a week. Beyond that we always visit Hollywild or Charlotte Motor Speedway to see the lights, but my favorite guilty pleasure is to watch cheesy Christmas movies on Netflix. Now I can’t promise you that the acting is worth a damn in these, but my favorites have been A Christmas Prince, A Christmas Kiss (don’t watch the second one, it’s terrible), Christmas Belle, and Spirit of Christmas. So after a hectic day at the mall, curl up on the couch and check out one of these!

Sweater: LOFT (50% off today!) | Skirt: Endless Rose | Boots: Hunter (Color is Pink Sand) | Bag: Chanel | Earrings: BaubleBar c/o | Mug: Sweet Caroline Designs c/o


Happy Tuesday, y’all! I am finally home after a crazy weekend of snow and travel. We spent Saturday in Charlotte for our friends’ wedding and then I went straight to Atlanta for work and to spend a little time with my family. I can’t believe that the snow at my parents’ home still hasn’t melted. It’s so pretty! And we’re not going to sit still for long. Jeremy and I are trying to finalize plans to head to rent a cabin this weekend in the mountains. Nothing like waiting until the last minute!

But I have been looking forward to sharing this look with y’all because I am beyond in love with this skirt. I typically gravitate toward traditional holiday colors this time of year, but I love how this Endless Rose mini went with blush pink instead. It runs true to size and is only $60. It’s perfect for pairing with pink Hunter Boots, which are currently 10% off. And speaking of sales, this cable-knit cold shoulder sweater is 50% off today. I’m wearing a size small and the length is perfect for wearing with all of your winter skirts.

How to do Louisville like a Local

I had the pleasure of visiting Louisville, Kentucky recently and phew! What a weekend. I had never been to Louisville before and while I had some preconceived notions, I went in with an open mind. Luckily, we had a born and bred local, Katie of Go To Louisville, show us the ropes. It didn’t take me an hour in Kentucky to learn three things that they take very seriously: horse racing, bourbon, and the pronunciation of their city. It’s loo-ah-vull, by the way!

Overall, my expectations were completely exceeded. This isn’t some honky tonk town, this is a thriving, cultural, trendy city with some of the nicest folks I have ever met. I felt right at home on Day 1 and wasn’t ready to leave come Day 3. So come along with me as I walk you through the highlights of this weekend and add some things to my own to-do list for when I return.
