Last Minute Holiday Outfits - LBDs

The holiday season is in full swing, Christmas is less than a week away, and the New Year is just around the corner. You've probably started getting invitations to holiday parties, dinners, etc., and if you're anything like me, you probably haven't given much thought about what you're going to wear.

If you're struggling to find something last minute and don't have time or money to go out and buy something new, my advice to you is to go for the little black dress (LBD) you already have in your closet. The LBD is a classic and you really can't go wrong. They can be dressed up for a more formal event, or dressed down for something more casual. Here are three LBD Holiday Looks I put together. Enjoy!

DIY Jewelry Storage Solutions - Part I

I'm really excited to share with you the first post in a series of DIY Jewelry Storage Solutions! Today's jewelry storage solution is an earring hanger made from a picture frame. The great thing about this earring hanger is that it also sort of doubles as a room decor piece, so you can personalize it to match your room color palette/theme.

October & November Favorites 2014

Hey everyone! First, I just want to say sorry for being MIA lately. My job has been pretty demanding lately, to say the least, which has resulted in my schedule being really unpredictable, and I just haven't had the time to write a proper blog post. Not to mention, we're losing more and more daylight everyday here in Alaska, so by the time I get off work, the sun is down & I can't photograph outside. Anyway, I'm really sorry and I'd like to make it up to you, so I'm hoping to have a few posts up this week, so stay tuned for that! Now, lets get started on my October & November Favorties...

Monochrome Kimono OOTD

2014 has definitely been the year for the kimono fashion trend. I started seeing colorful kimonos in stores and in magazines earlier this spring, just in time for music festival season. The trend lasted all summer, and is now transitioning into the fall season. I love the look of kimonos. They are so effortless and can be worn so many different ways. I've seen them worn over swimsuits, with denim shorts & crop tops, paired with boyfriend jeans, over skater dresses, and with leggings.

Fall Lookbook 2014

I mentioned last week that I had a lookbook planned for you all, but unfortunately the weather wasn't cooperating, so I had to reschedule. I originally wanted to make a video lookbook, similar to those that Claire Marshall makes on YouTube, and I had high hopes that the weather would be better this weekend so I could film, but it rained all weekend again, so I decided to get creative with the self-timer setting and I photographed my lookbook at home. It wasn't easy, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Enjoy! XX

August & September Favorites 2014

I originally had a fall lookbook planned for today's post, but unfortunately, due to weather, I wasn't able to put it together in time, so we will have to take a rain check. But worry not, my friends, because I have a Plan B; August & September Favorites, which is actually great because, since I had so much going on last month, I didn't get a chance to share my August favorites.

Updates: Family Visits & Working

September was an unexpectedly busy month, which explains my lack in blog posts lately. I had a friend come and visit for the first week of September. Immediately after she left, my grandmother came to town. The day after my grandmother got here, my aunt, my cousin and his wife also came to visit, then a few days later, one of my uncles came to visit, too. It was a McIntyre Family reunion of sorts. The entire month was so fun and packed full of adventure (to say the least).

Job Interview OOTD

Last week, I got a call for a job interview and literally the first thought that crossed my mind was, "what am I going to wear?!" I immediately ran to my closet and started ransacking my wardrobe. I tried on at least seven different outfit combinations before ultimately deciding on a pale pink midi skirt and a white boyfriend style shirt, both from ASOS Curve. I topped it with a black blazer with ruched sleeves from Torrid. For shoes, I wore a pair of silver, laser cut flats by the brand City Classified.

My ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I'm sure you've all seen the famous Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) Ice Bucket Challenge videos circulating the internet and various social media platforms. They've definitely been flooding my social media feeds, and I think that is awesome! The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a social media campaign designed to raise money that will be used for ALS research AND to spread awareness about the neurodegenerative disease. I was recently nominated by one of my friends to participate in the challenge, as well as donate $10 to the ALS Association. Here is my video:

Set the Scene: Wedding Re-Creation

My parents recently celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary! I can't even begin to imagine spending that much time with one person, and still being madly in love with them. It's crazy and unbelievable and kind of, really awesome!

The people over at reached out and asked me to participate in a challenge called Set the Scene. Basically, they sent me three themes (or locations) for the picture-perfect wedding (Beach Affair, City Glam, and Rustic Chic), and I am to choose a wedding dress from their website and style it to match the theme of my choosing.
