Oh, what a month! I have been overwhelmed with sadness, joy, and change. My older brother was in the hospital for heart problems (which broke my heart), I went to Ireland and Paris for the holidays (I can’t believe I get to say that), and my boyfriend is moving to Houston Texas the beginning of January!
To catch you up…Luckily my brother is back to being healthy! Feel free to blow up his Instagram with likes (@chad_bowman) and keep him in your prayers. Second, I went to Ireland and Paris for Christmas and New Year’s. I am the luckiest girl in the world. I had such an amazing trip and will be sharing many blog posts on what I did and what I wore! Third, it’s time to get ready for long distance–again. But I couldn’t be more excited for my stud of a boyfriend for landing an amazing job in an amazing city! Get ready to see even more travel posts! If any of y’all live in Houston or have visited, let me know!
Now…time for my favorites!
Romwe Skirt– If you haven’t seen my blog post where I show off how I styled a bomber jacket (featuring the most gorgeous skirt) please have a look! It is a little bit out of my comfort zone, but I love it! Mixing styles is always fun and this gorgeous skirt is perfect for doing so!
Kate Spade Crossbody- I purchased this bag over the summer and wanted to save it for my trip to Paris. Lame or reasonable? Don’t answer that… I got so much use out of it and think it is such a classy look!
J.Crew Coat- My sweet grandparents purchased this for me and holy cow have I used it a lot! This coat has been with me to Boston for a work trip, Ireland, and Paris. It is super warm and adorable. I have always had my eye on J.Crew’s coat selection and it lived up to my expectations. (Find a similar style here!)
Victoria Beckham Sunglasses- If you haven’t hear of DITTO, look it up! I can thank them for letting me try out these Victoria Beckham sunglasses for the month. They are so POSH 😉 If you want a month FREE use xocatiebeth!Stila Mascara– Officially my favorite mascara I’ve ever used. I got a sample and fell in love months later and now it’s a mascara I will always have in my collection!.
Red Lips- Perfect for the holidays! They also just completely transform your look and take it to the next level. It’s perfect to add to a messy ponytail leather jacket look (as seen on @xocatiebeth instagram) or to wear for an night out on town! The holidays was a perfect excuse to experiment with makeup.

Ladurée Macroons- Worth the $17.00 (Thanks for the inspo, Blair Waldorf)
White Robes in hotel rooms (maybe it was just the fact it was Paris, but it just takes it to another level)
Literally everything about my trip to Ireland and Paris (to sum it up)
Happy 2017 to all of you! Wishing you an amazing year! Thanks for all of your support and sweet comments!
