lipstick junkie

  Happy Thanksgiving Eve Lovies!!!!
i can already smell the turkey basting and pumpkin pie on the stove . . . gobble gobble!!
are ya'll as excited as i am??  you should be!  it's officially the kick off to the holidays!  black Friday, cyber Monday, the hustle and bustle of last minute Christmas shopping, i cant wait!
this jacket was a really early Christmas present to myself, and you've already seen it on the blog, but it has been such a needed item to my wardrobe.  i don't know how I've gone so many years without a black leather jacket (vegan of course)!  it is, in my opinion, a necessary staple and i've ogled over a dozen over the years but they were either out of my price range or not quite right.  im very picky about my jackets, especially one that i plan on wearing a lot.  my outfit alone was cute enough, but the leather adds that extra edge that i just love so much!  this lipstick blouse is tots adorbs and i got such a great deal (gotta love a sidewalk sale!) i paired it with my perfect skinnies and added my favorite pops of pink. 
on a side note: this Moon and Lola necklace is the perfect gift for any girl in your life, young or old!  its totally customizable from the font to the over 30 color options. (just sayin, don't be surprised if you get one from me this Christmas!)
i stuck with flats for today, which is actually my go-to on the daily, but i usually switch out to heels for pics.  sorry to disappoint you guys, this momma can't hardly manage 2 crazy boys in sneaks, so stilettos don't make the rounds all that often.  these oxfords however, are totally making me feet a lil more glam.  i just love the silver metallic and super pointed toe!  and its such a pop of fun when i look down, it instantly puts me in a happy mood!

poppin shoppin

did everyone have a fun weekend??  I know it's monday, and that's no fun, but only a few more days til Thanksgiving which hopefully means a long weekend off to fill your bellies and enjoy time with loved ones!  I love any reason to be festive and im always down to stuff my face, so this time of year is my absolute favorite!!  the general vibe everywhere you go is cheery and bright and smells of cinnamon and pine.  it's an instant mood booster!!  plus, starbucks is serving my favorite bevs, so everyday is a good day with my red cup in hand!!
and if you needed another reason to love the holiday season .  . lets talk about the shopping, shall we?
as a dedicated shopaholic, shopping the sales and finding new 'tiques is basically my job, and I take it very seriously!!  which is why, I am so excited my bestie opened up her very own "Pop-Up Shop" making my addiction that much easier to feed.  with most items well under $50 and a vast assortment of new weekly styles, im basically her best customer.  get ready to see lots of fun finds including this printed kimono that is absolutely perfect for a breezy day.  to keep it comfy, I layered it over my favorite basic tee.  (I literally have every color, the deep v is so perfect and so soft).  and these ripped legging are an easy go-to.  booties would have been an obvious choice, but I just received these cognac heels, and im a sucker for a lace-up, so I strapped them on for a little more heel appeal and topped it off with the most perfect floppy hat (be prepared to see this like everyday!) and my fave boho beads.  be to check out Synergy Style on insta and facebook and book your very own pop-up party!!
I hope you guys enjoy your day!! 
and thank you so much for welcoming our happy news!!  it was so nice to read all your comments of love and support!!

about a box

surprise you guys!!  i couldn't conceal this bump too much longer, and I've been itching to let you in on our little secret . . . we're having another baby!!  and if you couldn't tell by the blue confetti,
it's a boy!

we are so beyond thrilled, and i tell you, this babe is such a blessing and welcomed happy news!!  we have known for quite some time, but with all that was going on with Lincoln, i wanted to wait until we had 2 boys to celebrate; Linc's recovery, and little M happily blossoming in my tummy.
i promise you i will still style the bump as fab as i possibly can, but bear with me please!!  i have never actually documented a pregnancy, and literally only have 1 or 2 photos with my older 2 boys.  to be perfectly frank, i don't find the pregnant figure all that attractive, especially my own!  perhaps its vanity, well, let's be honest, its totally vanity!!  but any woman who tells you other wise is totally lying.  on the plus side, after all the weight gain, and heart burn, i get the most beautiful gift of a baby boy, so the pain is most definitely worth the gain!!

a touch of blush

i guess i've been a bit into monochromatic dressing lately, or truly just shades of nude/blush.  its totally unintentional, but i do find it flattering to wear clothing in the same color family.  i've also, really been into pleated midis of late.  they're uber feminine and a tad vintage inspired and perfect for sunday service!  i found this lace Free People version at Marshalls, marked down to $15!!  i was so stoked, i didn't even bother trying it on, i knew i could make it work!  the pink lace is delicate and the leather waistband is an unexpected edge that only FP would think of.  i paired it with this chambray tank that's been in my closet for quite some time and layered up with this fab faux fur.  ivory accessories seemed appropriate given the fancy vibe, and my rockstud wannabes are always my first choice!  i even snagged another pair in black, bringing my tally up to 3 now, and i'm debating getting the red ones.  don't judge, i have a problem, trust me i know!!
i hope you all enjoy the rest of your hump day, and be sure to check back on friday because i have some very exciting news to share with you!!!
