Friday Favorites 12/26/14

Happy Friday! I'm sharing a few favorites today as usual and attempting to keep my regular M/W/F schedule through the rest of the holiday season with short and sweet posts as time permits!

1. Back in Stock!

The Stretch Knit Ruche Mini Skirt that was one of my favorite pieces this fall as well as a reader favorite is back in stock!
Ruche Skirt: Express  / White V Neck: Old Navy / Striped Tee: Nordstrom / London Sweater in Silver Gray: Express

2. Sequin Season

'Tis the season to wear any amount of sequins you want for any occasion. And I probably don't need to tell you that Express always has a good inventory of fun, festive sequin pieces. Skye is ready to go with her High Waist Sequin Mini Skirt:

She mentioned that it has an elastic waistband making for an easy fit (and probably to accommodate the biggest holiday meals!).

3. Blog Life to Real Life

I had the best time on Monday night meeting up with these two ladies and their husbands for dinner:
Carylee  & Noelle in Express outwear (Classic Trench Coat & Moto Jacket)

This was my second time meeting each of them (but their first time meeting each other) and just like the first time, it was such a positive experience to find them in real life exactly as they are on their blogs. Noelle is sweet, kind, and compassionate. She's a great listener and a great friend. Carylee is so fun, friendly, and adept at making everyone instantly at ease in her presence! Like Noelle said in her post, we all instantly felt as if we'd known each other for years. It was definitely one of my favorite memories this holiday season and I hope it becomes an annual tradition!

  11. Aw, I love that you all got to meet up again!! Super fun!! With all this cold weather, maybe I need to take a trip to SoCal to warm up....lol!!!! :-) On an outfit note, gosh I do love the sequin skirt on Skye!!! I'm just too afraid to bite the bullet bc not sure how much used I'd get out of it, although I love them with super casual tops too...Anyway, Happy Holiday's my friend!!
