For my work holiday party, I found the Sequin Fringe Midi Dress from Forever 21 which was absolutely perfect for the occasion because the theme was Roaring 20’s/Gatsby theme. I absolutely loved the dress and feel like I can wear it again for New Years Eve as well.

 

I wanted to give a little bit of options for this post since I know not many people are crazy about sequins so I also added some pieces that are fitting for the occasion but not too flashy. I also kept it on the affordable side because you don’t always have to break the bank to look good and be dressed for the occasion. I also wanted to share items that weren’t just online but in store because this weekend is a perfect time for last minute shopping for that perfect NYE outfit!

Thanks for reading! I hope y’all had a wonderful Christmas and have an even better New Years Eve! Keep up with my life by following me on Instagram.

My Favorite New Accessory | A Unique Wood Watch by JORD

Watches are not only an accessory, but also a necessity with my busy lifestyle.

Watches are one of my favorite jewelry pieces and are timeless.  I literally have a collection of watches in my jewelry collection and they all range from different face sizes and metals.

Much to say I was very excited when I got contacted by a company named JORD Watches for a collaboration. After looking at their website and Instagram, I quickly became a fan of their watches and high-key obsessed.  I had never seen watches that were made of all wood, until I discovered JORD watches. I love that they are hand crafted from raw woods & materials. There is literally a watch for everyone, no matter man or woman, or fashion style.

You can Shop their watch collection here

I was able to choose any watch I wanted out of their wide collection of flawless watches. When I looked at their women’s collection online, the first watch that caught my eye was the Frankie Series in Purpleheart and Plum. For as long as I can remember, purple has been my favorite color, I saw the Purpleheart and Plum watch and I knew I needed it! The Purpleheart wood is a beautiful mix between pink and purple. It had a large plum colored face which I mentioned, I am a big fan of . I feel like this watch can be worn in any season whether it be fall or summer. It is a bright vibrant color during the summer time and a subtle deep color for the fall/winter time. JORD also gives you the ability to engrave your watch with any message or name you want, I have never had any jewelry pieces personally engraved with my name so I was so excited that this was an option! I got my first and middle name “Lori Allison” engraved on the back face of my watch in cursive. I couldn’t wait to get my watch delivered!

When I got the email notification that my watch got delivered I was super excited to get home! The watch was in a beautiful wood box and right when I opened it, my nose got hit with the smell of fresh wood! I never knew how good fresh cut wood smelt. The watch was exactly how imagined, the pigment of the Purplewood and the size of the watch face. It was also very light which I didn’t expect since its made all out of wood!

My collaboration with JORD also includes a giveaway for a $100 gift card toward your favorite JORD watch. The giveaway ends October 28 at 11:59 pm. Each person who enters into the giveaway will also receive a 10% off code toward their JORD purchase.

I am so happy JORD reached out to me to collaborate with them, it has been such a great experience. I am in love with my watch, it is my new go to watch, I have already worn it out multiple times and have gotten so many compliments on it. The quality of their watches is amazing and I definitely recommend them to anyone and everyone!
Be sure to check out their amazing watches – with the holiday season coming up they also make an amazing gift

Texas Pride, San Antonio Fashion

Texas is a great, big state with a lot to offer! Among the sites to see, food to eat, and events to attend, we also have a variety of styles! Today I’m pleased to share with you two fellow Texans that are also my fashion blogger friends. Diana is a blogger at The Neon Factor based in Houston, and Devoreaux is a blogger at The Prep Pursuit based in Dallas.

We each decided to share looks in landmark locations to our respective cities! Check out their amazing looks below!

San Antonio is famous for its beautiful skyline, and there is no better place to go to see it than the Hays Street Bridge. The Hays Street Bridge has become very popular over the last few years. They host different events like yoga, bike riding, mixers, and make the perfect place for pictures of downtown San Antonio. Overalls have been around for as long as I can remember, and they aren’t going away anytime soon.  Denim isn’t usually included in my summer look-book because it’s so hot, but these denim overalls are an outfit for the summer time, especially with this Texas heat. I love this distressed style and love that they’re versatile.  You can wear them casual during the day or dress them up for the night. I paired the overalls with a black tank top and accessorized with a taupe fedora to block out the sun during the day. This is definitely a summer outfit to beat the Texas heat and still be trendy at the same time while exploring everything the city has to offer!

We each decided to share looks in landmark locations to our respective cities! Which is why you may recognize the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge in the background of my shots! Now it’s hot here in Dallas… And I don’t mean warm, I mean steaming hot! One of my favorite summer accessories is a parasol guard the flaming sun waves beating down. I love this dress, featuring a tropical palm tree print! It’s summery and vibrant, and makes me feel like I’m on a tropical location – even if I’m home here in Dallas!

In the heart of Houston’s downtown area you’ll find Buffalo Bayou Park. It’s a gorgeous park that people gather from around the city for their daily bike rides, exercise, or to just soak in some sun. The floral print of the skirt goes beautifully with the background. Houston gets extremely hot in the summer so the glass gets slightly dry but the flowers still bloom in the heat. And as I love bright bold colors I couldn’t help but add these fabulous metallic colors. I wear this jacket year round in different ways. Some nude cage sandals to finish the look and I’m off to enjoy the beautiful city of Houston.
