My Favorite Dress this Holiday Season

Hey y’all! I recently wore this outfit to my husband’s company holiday party, and I LUV’d it so much that I had to share! Bonus…¬†the entire site is 40% off right now, so you can save majorly on this dress and get it for under $60!!

This dress fit like a glove and was the perfect mix of classy and sexy. The peekaboo places were balanced by the sleeve and the longer length, so I think this dress is suitable for both professional/family parties and for the more adventurous occasions. It comes in several different colors, but I chose the green, because it’s my favorite color. And frankly, I think it’s gorgeous.



I bought this bag at the sample sale that I shared with you on Instagram a month or two ago, and it’s no longer available in this color, but I shared some similar options in the “Shop the Post” link at the end of this post. (Some are on sale.)

I found these¬†earrings (at a totally different store) but you guys… they are literally the PERFECT match. SO… if you’re getting this dress in this color, you MUST get the earrings too! ūüėČ


Here are the items I’m wearing in this outfit and some that are similar…

Thanks for stopping by!

Pumpkin Patchin’

Today we went pumpkin picking and painted/carved our pumpkins. I can’t believe I’ve been picking pumpkins with my handsome hubs for 15 years!? Even though he and I end up usually doing most of the carving, sharing these traditions with our kids is so important to me. I thought I’d share a look inside a special day for us…


We started at a pumpkin patch close to our house but couldn’t seem to find just the right ones. Though the hunt is half the fun, right?


So we headed to the second patch, where we found just the right ones…


This patch had some “spookies” (as we call them) and my oldest was less than stoked. Last year, my little guy was also petrified of anything spooky. But a couple weeks ago, I took him on a long walk to check out the decorations in my neighborhood during the day. Apparently seeing them in the light (and touching them and lifting their drapes to see they were made of plastic and batteries) really helped him conquer his fears. Emerson wanted nothing to do with them still, but Corbin hopped right up and said, “See Sissy! They’re just pretend!”


First Corbin hunted for his perfect pumpkin…


He said, “You like the white ones, Mommy.” Yup. ūüėČ


He found his pretty quickly…


Em, on the other hand, likes to really take her time.




She thought she’d decided on a white one…


But then she changed her mind.


Here we are with the winners…




Links to me and Em’s matching outfits (FYI: You can get both of our dresses for around $30 total!)…

Thanks for following along with us! I rarely share our personal stories on here, but I’m trying to make a point to¬†change that every once in a while. Hope you enjoyed… ūüôā

The Event that Made Headlines, the Perfect Color for Fall, & OTK Boots for All Budgets

J and I had the opportunity to go see Amy Schumer Live this past Sunday. Did you see the headlines?? Oh. My Gah. I’ll spare you the details, because I try to avoid political banter on public forums (which is apparently not the case for Amy). But go ahead and google “Amy Schumer Tampa Show” if you want to hear about it. I promise I won’t discuss further! lol Anywho… I was LUV’ing the crisp weather and finally a chance to wear my over-the-knee boots. And I’m all about a good knit dress. If it’s cozy- it’s for me.¬†You know fall has arrived when you’re seeing shades of merlot and burgundy. It’s right on¬†trend,¬†and I think it’s a color that works for all¬†hair and skin tones!



Some of the options I’m LUV’ing in this wine tone:



I shared about these boots on¬†my Instagram. They’re under $50 and a must-have for fall. I’ve linked them and some of my favorite OTK boots for all budgets:

And here are some of the other items I’m wearing:

Lastly, I wanted to mention my sunglasses for y’all real quick. If you follow my Insta closely, you’ve probably heard me say it before, but I’m obsessed with this subscription service. These sunglasses retail for around $300 (and I’ve linked them to purchase above, if you’d like). OR you can head to¬†¬†and use code “LUVBEC” at checkout and rent them FREE for one entire month! I’ve tried oogles of subscription services, and few have stuck. But this one… it’s a goodie. You’re welcome. ūüėČ


Have a good one, y’all!

My Favorite Spot for Denim & Fall Boots and BUY MORE, SAVE MORE…

Last night, the hubs and I went to Busch Gardens for a fun little date night. We got to ride roller coasters and act like big kids, sans the little kids. We got a tour of the Howl-O-Scream festivities before the park opened officially for the evening and got a little spooked in the haunted houses. (Did you follow along on my Instagram Stories?!)


I wanted to wear something that was both cute and comfortable and wear shoes that I could walk the park in without worrying about missing out on the fun because of boot-induced blisters (Ladies, you know exactly what I’m talking about!) I wore these boots for the first time, and didn’t get one blister!!! They were super comfortable, and I’m so¬†excited about them for fall! They’re the perfect shade of brown and will go with almost anything! (I love the contrast of mixing black with brown.) The boots are currently 25%, and it’s BUY MORE, SAVE MORE until Monday, so act fast, if you’re interested! PS- They also come in black. I might need those, too. ūüėČ

One of the questions I get most frequently, as it pertains to fashion, is where is my favorite place to buy denim. Though I have a couple favorite styles¬†from other places, I have one main¬†go-to store for¬†amazing, affordable¬†denim. I recently bought these black, stretch jeggings and I’ll probably be wearing them more often than socially acceptable… I LUV the sizing here bc it’s not like other juniors’ style stores/departments where you have to size way up and then you’re left feeling like… “I’m size what?!” (Usually at that point, I put them back for vanity’s sake.) In my experience with their denim, you can usually order your true size, without fuss.

Here are several other styles that I own and absolutely LUV! Again, right now it’s buy more save more, and denim is buy one, get one 50% off so it’s a great time to stock up for fall!

They also have tons of fabulous boots, so it was close to impossible to narrow it down to one. But here are some other amazing styles I’m LUV’ing, if you’re in the market for some new boots!

Finally, I added a little western belt, to finish the look. Western belts are totally on trend this fall and such a great way to complete a denim look or throw over a dress, skirt or romper. (See how I wore a thicker version over a romper for a concert I recently went to in this Instagram post.)

Here are a few options of Western belts for you…

Hope you enjoyed this post! I’d LUV to hear what topics you’re enjoying on here and what you’d like to see more of. Please feel free to comment with any questions¬†or¬†suggestions below!
