I can’t believe how quick this year has gone and that Christmas is just days away! It feels like forever ago since life was normal pre-masks, pre-COVID, pre-staying at home etc. This holiday season is definitely different this year when it comes to going places, seeing people and overall how we are in the world but that doesn’t mean there can’t still be plenty of holiday spirit. Personally, something that puts me in the holiday spirit is dressing up, even with nowhere to go…so I put together a few festive outfits featuring my favorite REVOLVE finds below!
This outfit is one of my favorites from REVOLVE for the holidays. This House Of Harlow wrap dress is super comfy, stylish + is as chic as can be. I love a wrap style dress and this one is great quality. I paired it with red ankle strap heels + a red Gucci bag. This outfit just screams Christmas dinner or holiday party to me…if only I had somewhere to go hehe.
When I put this outfit together it gave me total Blair Waldorf Gossip Girl vibes so yes I will be wearing this next time I am in NYC for the holidays, strolling down 5th avenue looking at the gorgeous window displays…till then I will cherish this look in my closet. This L’Academie Sweater is a favorite of mine because it is so soft + cozy, great to style a variety of ways and will always be timeless. I paired this sweater with a plaid skirt, Gucci Belt, red Gucci bag + black over the knee boots.
HELLO November + that means Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. While I am ready to jump head first into the holidays, the temps here in LA are still on the warm side so I am embracing some chic fall dresses from Red Dress Boutique to get me through the rest of the fall season, Thanksgiving + any other autumn days!
Red Dress Boutique has always been one of my go-to online shops for all things cute and affordable and for fall they certainly don’t disappoint! This Rust colored dress I am wearing is a favorite of mine (I own this style of dress in SO many colors).
This will definitely be my dress for Thanksgiving dinner (even though we are just staying in + cooking up some turkey) hehe. I paired it with RAYE booties from REVOLVE + my trustee Louis Vuitton Pouchette Metis. These boots are super comfortable by the way + match with so many different options when it comes to outfits 😉
Now back to my love of Red Dress Boutique! I love their site because they have easy shipping + returns, a plethora of styles that are all super cute + they are AFFORDABLE! Most of the items I get from Red Dress Boutique are under $75 + the styles are great quality that last me a long time. Anytime I need new sweaters, dresses or skirts I instantly think Red Dress Boutique because no matter what your style they have options for you (girly girl like me or not haha :p)
♥ Here’s Some Of My Favorite Fall Dresses From Red Dress Boutique ♥
Disney Wedding planning is underway and with all of the uncertainty currently happening in the world one of the parts of wedding planning I was most looking forward to was finding my dream dress! I am beyond excited to share that Demetrios Bridal reached out to me to help me find my dream gown and let me tell you they didn’t disappoint! Prior to my appointment Demetrios Bridal let me know they were doing a Trunk Show at one of their stockists, Mon Amie Bridal in Costa Mesa, CA so I decided now was the time to try on some gorgeous dresses and find the ‘ONE‘!
Prior to my appointment I sent over some of my favorite styles from the Demetrios Bridal website over to the team to assure they had those top picks of mine at Mon Amie Bridal. Since I am having a Disney Wedding at Walt Disney World I knew I wanted a princess style dress…a ball gown with tulle and some embroidery and sparkle…something that felt like Cinderella so I was beyond excited when I got to Mon Amie Bridal with my bridesmaids in tow to begin trying on some gorgeous gowns!
The team at Mon Amie Bridal was beyond sweet + helpful, they had dresses perfect for a Disney Wedding from Demetrios already pulled and they all were flawless so it was quite a tough decision. Here’s a look at some of my favorites I tried on that made me feel like an angel!
The dresses were all so beautiful and it was a surreal moment to actually step into some of these gorgeous gowns. I definitely shed some tears + got pretty emotional. My maid of honor facetimed with my dad in NY so he could give his opinion and it was fun to get a guy’s perspective haha But he cried and we experienced all sorts of emotions thinking about me walking down the aisle.
What I love about Demetrios Bridal is that their gowns feel so unique, special + feminine which is exactly what I was looking for…something dreamy, magical + one of a kind. Demetrios can even customize the dress to my liking which I am so excited about because I am going to add some pretty sleeve detailing to the style I chose (which you will have to see when I walk down the aisle).
The entire Demetrios Bridal collection is impeccable…whether you are looking for a ball gown or an A-line or a mermaid style etc. They create gorgeous dresses for every type of bride which is what made me feel so at ease when picking and choosing different styles.
It was so fun to also add a veil and bouquet when trying on the gowns…it really helped me envision what I would look like on my big day. I am still deciding on my veil but I did pick my dress that day after trying on a variety of styles…it was a tough decision but I went with a gorgeous ball gown which I can’t wait to share with you all!
A big thank you to Demetrios Bridal for helping me find my dream dress and Mon Amie Bridal Salon for the amazing experience for my dress try on! All photography shot by Vanessa Hicks Photography.
I’m back to reality this week after spending a magical week in Orlando at Disney World to kick off the fall season as part of #DisneyCreators! I had the amazing opportunity to hang with other influencers + experience everything new for Halloween at Walt Disney World Resort from new merchandise to tasty treats to spooky decor + more. There were so many favorites so here’s a few Halloween highlights I wanted to share with y’all!
One of my favorite parts of Halloween at Disney World are the festive decorations. Nothing makes me happier than seeing Mickey pumpkins line Main Street and this year they are back in full force along with fall leaves and adorable signage.
Since there are no character meet + greets currently at Disney World as part of their safety guidelines for COVID, there are fun character cavalcades that go around the parks at various times throughout the day. I loved the Halloween ones at Magic Kingdom like the one with Winnie the Pooh and friends dressed up in Halloween costumes or the Nightmare Before Christmas float complete with spooky music from the movie + more! This was one of my favorite parts of Magic Kingdom to keep the spooky spirit alive and well.
You know I love stocking up on new Disney merch and the new goodies didn’t disappoint from Spirit Jerseys to Popcorn buckets to Ears to Plushes, Decor + more…I love all the spooky must haves and definitely stocked up on a ton from ShopDisney and from WDW!
Villain Clue was a must have + I couldn’t wait to buy it and I can’t wait to play it!
OK, other than stocking up on merch you know one of my favorite things to enjoy during Halloween at Disney World are the yummy treats! From desserts to drinks to savory snacks + more, Disney never disappoints when it comes to the food! One of my favs? The Pumpkin Spice Milkshake – how cute is it?
I also LOVED the Pumpkin Spiced Waffle Sundae + Orange and Black Sugar Churros. Honestly all the food is way to yummy! Full food roundup on the Disney Parks Blog!
While there are more safety precautions in place this time around, it didn’t make the experience any less magical, in fact smaller crowds, more opportunities for photos + short lines for rides + food! It was pretty magical if you ask me!

Preparation is KEY!
I’m super excited to share one of my best-kept secrets when it comes to preparing ahead for the future…CreditRepair.com! My fiance and I are recently engaged so that means we have a lot of big life milestones coming up: Planning our wedding, Buying a home AND Preparing to start a family! What does this mean? (Other than wow time flies by hehe) It means it’s time to get our credit in check and make sure we have amazing credit scores to make all these major life moments go off without a hitch!
I take really great pride in being financially responsible and savvy. Before meeting my fiance I was always shopping, never saving, and didn’t even think of investing in the future with stocks or retirement etc. Fast forward to now, I save a lot, I always keep in mind what I am spending vs monthly bills and things I owe, and most importantly, I think about what lies ahead.
Since we have so many big purchases coming up I was excited to sign up for CreditRepair.com and to work with their team to make sure my credit is squeaky clean to make those purchases and get the best mortgage and credit rates as possible. If you haven’t heard of CreditRepair.com, they are a leading provider of credit report repair services in the United States, with over 500,000 clients served!
I always pay my bills on time and work hard to keep my credit score high so that is why I was pretty surprised when I began working with my Credit Repair team that they noticed a few hits on my credit that we then came up with a plan to resolve as best as we can. They discovered a collections hit from a medical bill a few years ago that was paid in full but was still a hit on my credit somehow. Naturally, I was freaking out but my CreditRepair.com advisor was amazing and helped me come up with a solution. They reached out to the collections company on my behalf to work to remove the credit hit.
It’s things like that that I never even thought of when planning for my future especially since I check my credit score often and it goes up consistently. This hidden hit is something I never would have been aware of without the amazing help of CreditRepair.com!
