Cheers to a new year.1,4,6-Charlotte Russe...2-J.C.Penney...3,5-Belk

New Year's Eve has always been one of my favorite holidays...
getting dressed up in your most glamorous outfit, popping the bubbly,
and celebrating what has gone and what is to come with dear friends.

I was so excited when Eastdale Mall asked me to put together a NYE look!
I featured items from J.C.Penney, Charlotte Russe, and Belk to put this mix together-
I love mixing jewel tones, black, and of course a little sparkle to keep with the festive vibe of the evening.

Do you guys have fun plans this evening??
Our New Year's will be a little more laid back this year with a little one on the way:)

P.S. Congrats to Olivia, winner of the PinkBlush Maternity Giveaway!

A tartan holiday.

A tartan holiday


Tartan is one of my favorite winter looks right now,
nothing else says holiday festive like this great pattern.
Here are a few of my favs, all under a hundred bucks!


In other life happenings, I've been telling you guys that J and I have had
a lot going on the past few weeks....I'm excited to finally share that
we are moving back to Alabama! {Where hubs and I are both from}
J received a promotion {proud wifey, here} and his company has transferred him back to 'Bama.
Of course our families are thrilled...with bitty on the way,
the timing couldn't be any more perfect.

The past month has been wild. We moved everything over the Thanksgiving holidays.
J has been settled in the Alabama office for a couple of weeks now,
but I am still here in Jackson until school dismisses for Christmas.
That means hotel living for this gal and driving to AL on the weekends.
An interesting setup for the time being, but we're making it work.

We'll miss the dear MS friends we've made but also can't wait to be
back closer to home as we start our little family:)
God has blessed us more than we could have ever imagine these past 6 months,
can't wait to see what the new year brings!

Thanks for reading...love you all so much!

Make me blush.

Untitled #9

I love that blush is on trend this season,
it has always been a favorite of mine.
I adore its subtle pop, such a gorgeous shade during the winter chill.

I hope everyone is getting geared up for Thanksgiving!
J and I will be in Alabama visiting both of our families.
The girls are venturing out for some Black Friday madness
with possibly a couple of nephews in tow.......we'll see how that goes!

Happy Friday sweet friends!

Wowza guys.
Things have been absolutely crazy around the Kimbrough house.
J and I have both been swamped with school and work. He has been out of town
pretty much the entire past two weeks and I have our Fall Show coming up tomorrow.
Once all of this gets wrapped up though it should be smooth sailing and then....THANKSGIVING!
Yahh!! So excited to have a week off and get some fun time with our families.

Anywho, here's an Insta-update of what I've been throwing on lately {@elizabetheuna}:

Wednesday steals: All about accessories.

Since I'm hating to spend too much money on maternity clothes
{cause Lord knows I probably won't want to wear the same thing again on babe #2},
I have found myself swooping up lots of jewelry the past couple of months.
It will probably consume most of my Christmas list as well;)
To get the most bang for my buck, I always check out the offers over at Groopdealz 
because they always have designer inspired pieces for about a fourth of the price.
Below are a few items I am loving this week!

Be sure to stay warm friends, it was 30 degrees this morning in Mississippi!
I've been guzzling pumpkin spice coffee {decaf, of course} and finally 
got to break out my tartan blanket scarf. Happy day!

Have a great Wednesday!
