SAG Award Red Carpet Favorites

There was not a lot of major color on the SAG red carpet, but these looks really stood out. Kristen Bell's magenta was the perfect contrast to the pale pink looks. Reese Witherspoon's emerald and Mandy Moore's blue gowns were stunning. I immediately want to run out and buy dresses in those three colors. Brie Larson's dress was a beautiful floral which is obviously perfect for Spring, but the sleeves and deep v-cut kept the look from feeling dowdy.

Pale pink was all over the red carpet. As the snows thaw, it is a breath of fresh air to see a color so light. Dakota Fanning, Margot Robbie, and Millie Bobby Brown were my favorite looks. Dakota is ballerina perfect. Margot is simply stunning with her belt of feathers. And Millie is Baby Spice.

Would it be a red carpet without some sparkle? Allison Williams, Halle Berry, and Olivia Munn shined the brightest. Allison's dark hair and red lip, Halle's utter perfection, and Olivia's simple hair and makeup made these looks.

After the Holidays

Even though the holiday season is over, I'm still obsessed with my plaids (in this case a buffalo check) and fair isle sweaters - especially together.  Each year I find myself setting aside my favorite sweaters and tops because they're meant for the holidays. Generally, that means I'm not getting the wear out of them that I would like. I'm changing my ways! Just like wearing white after Labor Day, we should be wearing our holiday favorites through the winter. And I'm just really loving this combo - it's very 'winter' without being too Christmas Eve.

Sunday Scarf

This past Sunday was all that a Sunday should be. We started with a lovely breakfast/brunch at Cracker Barrel. Obviously, since I couldn't decide if I wanted something savory or sweet, I chose both. Then we went to see Star Wars! It was so good! Definitely go see it. Right now! As pictured above, I had to get my blue raspberry Fanta drink!

I don't wear many scarves because I generally find them annoying. Well, just look at what this one did to my coat! I will say though, a good blanket scarf can make all the difference. It was wonderful to curl under while watching a film at the theater. It adds a pop of color to a neutral outfit/coat. You can pretend to be the 4th Doctor. Blanket scarves are useful!

Winterlights at Newfields

"Stroll Winterlights at Newfields from November 19th through January 7th amid the glow of a million bulbs—you know the song Walking in a Winter Wonderland? Now you can actually do it, ambling side-by-side with family and friends through memorable holiday light displays, in forest, field and gardens—from “whimsy trees” to the Snowflake Bridge to the grand AllĂ©e."

That little blurb above is from the Winterlights webpage and I couldn't have said it better myself. The tour was completely magical. Watching the light show was so calming and beautiful. The detail was incredible. How did they get all those strands on those tiny branches?! If you're in Indy, definitely go! FYI - go on a week night. The weekend shows have been selling out! And don't forget to pick up a spiked hot chocolate or cider.

Monday Musings

1. Target blazer: The blazer I am wearing above is absolutely perfect. While it is not something I would just randomly pick up, I did need a layering piece for a dress I was going to wear to a Christmas  party. The dress didn't end up working out, but I knew I wanted to keep this blazer. I tried it on with a few different items in my closet until landing on the outfit above. It's a boyfriend blazer, so it will also look great with skinny jeans and loafers - which I am dying to try out. Also, it is currently on sale!!

2. Doctor Who Christmas Special: I have been watching the Doctor Who series to prepare for the upcoming Christmas Special. Spoilers! I'm so excited for Jodie Whittaker to take over as the Doctor.

3. A VR Funny: If you haven't played or watched something frightening on the VR system, you should. It's ridiculous and hilarious for those watching. This video shows a mom watching something on VR and becomes frightened and grabs the dog for comfort. What ensues is hilarious. I laughed for days.

4. Cobblestone in Zionsville: I recently dined at Cobblestone and it was refreshing! The restaurant is off the Main Street in Zionsville, IN. The cutest little street, especially when it is all lit up with Christmas lights at night. The fries alone are worth the trip! 

5. Holderness Christmas Video: The Holderness family did another Christmas video in their Christmas jammies! This time they highlighted a lot of their followers good times for the year 2017 and that just seems pretty cool. 2017 has definitely been a rough one, but there were some great moments as well - this video being one of them.

The Last Leaves

The last of the leaves have fallen from the trees and temperatures have started to... well... drop and rise again. Only in Indiana, right? It was snowing just a few days ago and now it practically feels like Spring! How is a girl to dress?

I always thought this would be a shirt I wore in the Summer, but it's so perfect for my Fall/Winter wardrobe! I just love it paired with my favorite blazer and this herringbone skirt. I love adding a fun print to an otherwise neutral (and potentially boring) outfit.
