Brilliant Earth Jewelry

Happy Holidays everyone!

I have officially been MIA for the last 2 weeks and I do apologize. Trying to find the time to blog while preparing for my trip back East to South Carolina for the holidays was a bit more than I could handle. Alas, I am now back and ready to share my thoughts, opinions and outfits with all of my lovely and dear followers!

A couple weeks ago I was approached by a GORGEOUS jewelry brand called Brilliant Earth. Their forte is ethically sourced diamonds and engagements rings and let me tell y'all, they're stuff is flawless! Feel free to check them out here. They asked me to make mood boards with their jewelry defining diverse personalities. All of the pieces I had to choose from were spectacular, but the dainty feminine pieces and casual everyday jewels spoke to me the most.

feminine// sunhat // floral dress // belt // nude heels //

For the feminine look, I immediately thought of a glam, yet sophisticated afternoon tea. The floral dress pairs nicely with the vine/tea leaf-esque earrings, while the bow belt felt fun and girly just like the stunning 18K white gold Willow diamond ring. Naturally a heel is a must when it comes to feminine perfection, but these ones with the scalloped detail along the ankle and solid gold heels are stunning! They simply scream, "I'm a girly girl and I want the whole world to know it!" No afternoon tea look would be complete without a perfectly over-sized floppy hat. If I had my choice, it would be monogrammed of course!

CASUAL// boyfriend jeans // plaid shirt // fur vest //sunglasses //  booties //

For my casual-cool look I wanted something girls could wear on an every day occasion, yet still feel fashionable. When it comes to an every day look, I tend to care more about the comfort than anything else because I'm usually running around all day. These boyfriend jeans and flannel top are the perfect pair to make you go from comfortable-esque to casual chic in a heart beat. If you live in a colder climate, throw on a fur vest with some fringe booties and you just took your whole outfit up a notch! Naturally while you're out and about you're going to want some sunnies to block the sun, and what better choice than Ray Ban aviators? Personally, I think a top knot would look best with this look to keep the comfort vibe going, but hey whatever fits best for you! The simplicity of the solid white gold ring pairs perfectly with the single bar necklace. They add a little pizazz to the outfit without making it overbearing. However, every girl needs a little glam in her life, which is why I paired the round diamond stud earrings to complete the look.

Do either one of these looks fit your personality? How would you pair the Brilliant Earth jewelry for a feminine and casual look? I'd love to hear your ideas!

xoxo, Paige

Baby All I Want For Christmas ...

Every year the same question gets asked: What do you want for Christmas?
I know I can't be the only one who isn't modest about admitting to what they want. Since I'm still in my "young adult" stage of course there are things I need, but sometime's I sit and day dream about the things I want.
Without further a due, this is my top 11 Christmas Wish List.
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 //10 // 11
1: Canon T3i Rebel Camera: I'm so thankful for Dr. D taking my photos, but sometimes I have to twist his arm to do it. Hopefully this camera will not only get him a tad bit more interested, but make my photos look amazing!
2: Faux Fur Vest: I've been on the hunt for one like a crazy person, but all the cute ones I find online are in the kids sections. Go figure! Guess it's a good thing I'm short!
3: Brown Bow Belt: Such a statement piece!
4: Michael Kors Signature Perfume: I switch between this and Burberry Brit. Both are such nice light scents
5: Glitter Bow Belt: Glitter, bow and it accentuates my waist? No need to say anything else!
6: Tory Burch Snake Reva Flats: I purchased my first pair back in October, but had a tough time deciding between these and the black. I think it's time both make their way into my closet
7: Monogram necklace: I just may be the only southern girl who doesn't own one of these. NOT okay!
8: J. Crew stud earrings: They're colorful, bright and J. Crew. One can never go wrong!
9: Bauble Bar Gold Bangle: Gold, bling and perfect to add to an arm candy stack!
10: Chevron Business Card Holder: Rather than shove my cards into my blazer pocket, this would be the PERFECT and most stylish way to carry them around, plus convenient to find!
11: Gingham Button Down: It may look like a tablecloth, but I sure do love this print!

What's on your Christmas list this year?

All Black Everythang & Stylish Tuesday Link Up

IMG_6609I wore this to one of my girlfriend's birthday celebrations last Friday night. LA has slowly but surely become rather frigid and I'm kicking myself for actually wanting this weather. What was I thinking?

IMG_6610I felt like a rockstar in this outfit because it was practically all black. Add in leather + fringe booties and my total bad ass side comes out, (but not really because I am anything but a bad ass chick).

IMG_6615This is where leopard came into play. It makes this hard, edgy outfit seem a touch more feminine and that's good enough for me! Plus it was le freezing outside and that bad boy leather jacket kept me warm all night!

Do you have any outfits which push you out of your comfort zone just a wee bit?

This week's featured look is Ms. Sierra from Life as a Waterleaf!

I loved her tuxedo-striped navy dress and bright pink pumps! That style has been so hot this season and I must say  this outfit is perfection from head to toe! Oh and did I mention she's a mom and still has that amazing body? Looking good girl!

Holiday Leopard with Ashton

Happy Monday Y'all!

I hope everyone had a phenomenal weekend! I celebrated my birthday (extremely early) and watched a ton of football with Dr. D. Still can't get over the Eagles vs. Lions game continuing to play in 8+ inches of snow. Sheer madness!

Today I'm teaming up with the wonderful Ashton from Ashton Wears Things to show you how we wear leopard during the holiday season!


I love how Ashton styled her black blazer and leather leggings with pops of gold and leopard! Such a great twist on the all black and leopard combo and perfect for the holidays!DSC_0550 DSC_0575_2DSC_8265

I have my fair share of brown/black leopard tops, but for the holidays I wanted to spice things up a bit with some red leopard. I paired it with a white skirt and a skinny belt (glitter of course!)

With the holiday parties in full swing, I switched out my plum purple mani for a emerald green to feel more festive!

Stylish Tuesday #3

Over the holiday weekend I flew to Las Vegas to meet up with my family. I was beyond thankful I didn't experience a Diane in seat 7A ...

I haven't seen my family in 6 months so it was such a refreshing weekend to get to relax, enjoy a show and gamble with my dad.
