Christmas Dinner @ The Grand Old House

I usually don't post family vacation/non outfit oriented things like this, but I wanted to share Christmas Dinner photos on the blog because I truly had such a wonderful time in the Cayman Islands last week. It's so nice to be able to kick back and not worry about your hair or what you're wearing. If you ever visit, you must dine at the Grand Old House. Try to make your reservation during golden hour so you can watch the sun set–– they have the best sunset view on the island! They also have great cocktails and desserts.

The dress I wore to dinner is from Minkpink and is unfortunately sold out. I will try to notify y'all if I see anything similar. What did y'all do to celebrate the holidays?

Cozy in Club Monaco

I received this Club Monaco sweater as a Christmas gift from my mother and I have fallen completely in love with it! It is super comfortable and the color is extremely appealing to me. I loved rocking it with my Stuart Weitzman boots and my new Warby Parker glasses–– I was long overdue for a new pair of prescription frames! I would highly recommend Warby Parker. They shipped my glasses to me so fast.

This outfit would be great for NYE, especially if it's chilly outside where you live. The sparkly cuff + necklace + gold nail polish offer a sparkly touch perfect for ringing in the New Year. What are y'alls NYE plans? I plan on spending tomorrow night with some blogger friends.

Cayman Islands 2015

My edited GoPro footage of our trip to the Cayman Islands is on YouTube! For best quality, watch in 1080hp. I love making these videos because it's such a good way to document a trip–– buying a GoPro was one of the best decisions of 2015 (for those wondering which one I have, it's the Hero 4+ Silver). 

We have been to the Cayman Islands before (this was our fourth time), but I swear it gets more magical every time. I was lucky enough to bring a friend along this year and as a family, we explored even more than in years past. 

Let me know what you think!

Surviving the Holidays With Hanes

Christmas is approaching fast, which is sorta stressing me out–– it's so hard to get ready for the holidays, and getting dressed for holiday parties is the worst! Hanes is to the rescue though... their shape wear tights look great under dresses and skirts, and they are so comfortable. I surely will be rocking them under my over the knee boots all season.

Thank you to Hanes for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

Getting Ready With Anthropologie

It's no secret that I love Anthropologie and all of the brands that they carry, so when they sent me a goodie bag full of beauty products to try out, I was so excited! All of these products would make great stocking stuffers. I especially loved the cheek and lip stain–– it went on so smoothly, and it was not over-pigmented. I have linked some of my other Anthropologie beauty favorites below.

Red, White, and Bean Boots

This ensemble has quickly become my fall favorite. It's perfect for crisp weather, and the scarf feels like a comfy blanket. This entire outfit head to toe (besides the boots) is from J. Crew, and while many of the exact items I am wearing are no longer available, I have linked similar ones!

I also seriously recommend these LL Bean Boots–– most people have the original ones, but I like these because they are different. Wanna tie your laces the same way I tie mine? Here's a great how-to.
