madd(er) for plaid

My philosophy for the winter months is the more plaid, the better. I guess doing yet another post in flannel might prove that… This time, I paired it with riding boots (the red zipper happened to match)!

I feel that plaid embodies Christmas, warmth, and all things lovely in one cozy little package. Maybe that’s why I wear it so much.

This week has included a day happier than Christmas: Bid Day. In sorority language, this is when the new girls join. There is nothing more exciting than welcoming 34 wonderful new friends into your life (especially when your best friend is one of them). I’m so excited to love them all. I also turned 20 (which seems oh so old)!

As for the headband, I made it! Stay tuned to see how you can get one of your own.

Have a wonderful week!

Love,

Maddie

all that glitters

Holidays are the perfect excuse to wear a little extra sparkle. Whether this comes from glittery sweaters, gemstone jewelry, or the bubbles in champagne, Christmas celebrations are all about beautiful light.

This month (and just about every other month of the year), I am loving vintage-inspired jewelry.

Statement earrings to be specific.

Now let’s take a peek at some of my favorites!

Some of these darling pieces are recently purchased, and some really ARE vintage!

This pair happens to be one of my very favorites. They match just about everything, which is a VERY good quality in jewelry if you ask me!

Every Christmas, my sisters and I do a secret santa exchange to save a little money. These blue gems were given to me this year by my sister Chloe. I would say that she has expert gift giving taste, but I actually helped her out a little (ok actually a lot)…earrings66

The next two pairs are also blue and also from Target (I’m sensing a trend here).

These pearl and gold beauties are another vintage find. I just love how versatile and effortlessly classy they are!

Wishing you a lovely, light filled holiday with a little added sparkle!
