No matter how cliche it sounds, January is truly the ‘reset’ month. The holidays are over, if you’re anything like me you have eaten every casserole, candy, dessert, meal known to man and you are up to your nose in bubbly cocktails and heavy drinks. My mind was jumbled, my house was destroyed and my body was hating me. I honestly wasn’t even able to sit down and write a post because I felt so out of whack. I’m now three weeks dairy free, my house is cleaned (& almost finished with my revamp!!!) and the blog has a full makeover. I’ve never felt more refreshed (even when I thought I was refreshed a couple of weeks ago, I wasn’t!!) and back on my grind. 

I have lived in athleisure apparel and I plan on staying this way until later next week when Cupid Season shows up (aka Valentine’s Day). I have so many great date nights/outfits/DIY gifts and more planned for Valentine’s, coming real soon! Until then I wanted to share a few things I’m loving about January and a little bit about my newly redone site! New Year, New me, Right?! 🙂 

First things first, Chacos & Chanel got a make over! There are still a few more changes to come mainly photos but the layout will be the same! It’s responsive so it should be super easy to use no matter what device you’re on (if not PLEASE tell me so I can fix it!) .. here are a few of my favorite new features! 

Products I Love I add this tab for a little sneak peek of new posts to come! I am going to be reviewing some of my favorite products (–think make up, hair products, kitchen gadget, etc. etc.), how to use them and also linking all the best places to buy them. –But for now you can quick shop some of my all time faves! Not to mention the brand new beauty tab!! YouTube videos coming soon! EEK! 

Home Decor & DIY This will be your go to for home stylings and projects! I have so many up my sleeve, I cannottttt wait to show you! 

There’s a few other new things here and there but I think it will be fun for you to discover those yourself! 

Off the Shoulder Sweater *On Sale for $26!| Leather Leggings, Also On Sale Here for $15 | Louis Vuitton Tote | UGG Boots *On Sale | Prada Sunnies, Dupe Here | Tory Burch Hoop Earrings | Phone Case

If I do trade my leggings in for a ‘real outfit’, I am still reaching for something cozy. So I’m not doing much trading since these leather pants are still leggings but it does look much more pulled together! I posted a sneak of this sweater last night on Instagram and they are low in stock so hurry before it sells out! I will link a few other of my favorite off the shoulder sweaters just in case. 

Both of these pieces will transition into Spring so well because they are light! 

*From Left to Right: Hint of Cashmere Sweater // Baby Blue Sweater //  Waffle Knit Cream Sweater // Dusty Brown Sweater // Lights Will Shine Sweater *Would be so cute in the Spring with denim shorts //

If you see any glitches in my new site or have a request for an upcoming post, please let me know! I hope you have a great Friday eve ;). XO,

Sequin Duffle Bag *On Sale

Sometimes I rock Mondays & deserve a huge gold stars, some days I need three naps, four cups of coffee and an extra large glass of wine by 5 o’clock. Yesterday was one of those days. It was cold and rainy, I had missed the puppy snuggles and Babe didn’t have work.. after spending most of the morning catching up on missed DVR, I did accomplish a grocery store run. I have so many cute Fall looks to share with you guys but a forecast of rain, rain and more rain has that on the back burner. Wah. Instead I decided to share my life currently. 

Currently coveting.. 

I am so happy cool weather is joining the party down here in Tennessee, if you’re lucky enough to live somewhere that actually allows appropriate ‘Fall’ outfits, I envy you. I am scoping out which coats I’m going to invest in this year. First I’m loving a very easy, drape-y, ‘wrap coat’. I want something that looks effortless yet chic. I found two steals under $60 + one that is a classic investment that lasts years. 

One. TwoThree.

Also on my wish list is a fun color coat. J.Crew’s coats are to blame for this one. I love their hot pinks and pale blues, plus the quality of their coats is second to none. I pulled three more colorful options for you as well (the first one is pink, suede & under $75!!). 

One. Two. Three.

Currently Pinning..

I spend a lot of free time, in between time & should-probably-be-sleeping-not-scrolling time on Pinterest (–come follow me!). I know it’s not even Halloween yet but I’m hosting both my family & RJ’s family at our house for Thanksgiving so I’m already pinning new recipes! On the menu so far.. mini desserts! I also am working on a few new DIY projects (these are a little more intense than my previous cardboard headboard and no sew pillows, these actually require a drill, yikes!) 

Currently Burning..

I am in love with Fall scents like warm vanilla cinnamon & pumpkin soufflĂ©. They both smell so sweet and warm. It reminds me of a mix of Grandma’s baking and heaven. I usually gravitate towards Bed, Bath & Beyond for my holiday candles but I love the adorable jars these candles come in. After you’re done burning them you can use them around your house! You can place a votive in them, turn them into a vase, hold jewelry or more.

I love my Retro Prada Sunnies, they are such a bold statement but come with a bold price tag. I found an identical dupe for them HERE. 

This crossbody is identical to the Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bags but under $23. 

This purse is almost identical to a Chanel bag but under $25 dollars and this bucket bag is currently in my shopping cart! 

If you’ve been looking for a mini Celine but with a mini price tag, look no further this one is identical!
