 Hi dolls!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Ours was busy with wedding planning (including one of my final bridal gown fittings! ekkkkk! cue the butterflies!) and some fun family activities! We were also happy to have a date night, which consisted of our faves: dinner & watching a movie (The Cowboy Way...it's an old one but SO funny- I highly recommend!).

So, who else is ready for spring!? It has been unseasonably warm in Tennessee, but I'm not complaining because I'm able to wear some of my cute new wardrobe additions & not freeze! With March 1st being just a couple of days away, it's almost time to spring forward! What better way to celebrate the time change than with a gorgeous new watch!? Read on for how you can win a beautiful watch for yourself! 😀

THE must-have accessory for springing forward is a new watch, am I right?! Let me tell ya, my new JORD wood watch totally fits the criteria for a cute, fashionable, and high-quality watch that is super versatile. (I'm wearing the Zebrawood and Champagne watch in the pictures above). What makes their watches even cooler is that JORD Wood Watches are crafted from various woods around the world. My watch in particular is "zebrawood" which is from West Africa. JORD uses whole wood stock to craft these gorgeous watches, and it definitely shows in the quality. Another selling point of this watch for me was the 35 mm watch face. I have rather small wrists, and this size was absolutely PERFECT. Also---for an extra $10, the company will size the watch for you so when it arrives at your doorstep it's ready to wear. The website has a wrist sizer that you print and use to measure your wrist. It's super easy and incredibly accurate! Also, did I mention that shipping is FREE worldwide?! Score!!!! They have SO many women's watches and men's watches to choose!

My watch arrived in a GORGEOUS wooden box which would definitely make the perfect gift for your girlfriend OR boyfriend (yes they have men's watches too!). Or, why not buy....or better yet....WIN.... one for yourself?!

I'm excited to announce that I've partnered with JORD Wood Watches to bring you a GIVEAWAY!!!! One lucky winner will win a $180 e-gift store credit so you can have a beautiful watch for yourself! The gift card will expire on 6/30/17.

Hi dolls!

I seriously can't believe how fast time is literally flying by (which is fine by me because that means our wedding day is even closer...😍  swoon...). Between school, clinicals, wedding planning, spending time with family, & working on some blogging projects coming soon, life has been busy, but I feel so blessed 💕 

The look I'm sharing with you today is one of my favorites for a date night, or a night out with friends! There is just something about fringe that is so sassy and fun, which translates into being perfect for the weekend, am I right!? This is a skirt I bought a couple of years ago at Dillard's and is by the CUTEST brand called Chelsea & Violet. I actually purchased it for a Kip Moore concert with my friends and it's been the perfect staple piece in my wardrobe ever since (not to mention it's great to wear while rocking out to some country music, one of my favorite past times, lol 😂). It's definitely a fabulous transition piece from winter into spring as you can pair it with a sleeveless top & throw on a leather jacket, as I did here! For an edgy look, it would be SO cute paired with Converse sneakers or OTK boots! 

I decided to go for a monochromatic look for my OOTN, but added color with my pop of turquoise in my necklace, red lips, and of course, the ever so timeless leopard print. I absolutely love these Sam Edelman pumps I scored at TJ Maxx & I find myself pairing them with so many things (see another way I have styled them here). Leopard print heels are another closet staple for me! Not to mention, I think they really added to the "fun" vibe of this outfit. Fringe + leopard print = a winning combination in my book! And that, ladies & gents, is my kind of mathematical equation...haha! 

I hope y'all have a fabulous week. Thank you SO much for reading; I appreciate each & every one of you! Be on the lookout for some fun projects coming soon to APFF!

Hi dolls!

First of all, I'm so excited to share my brand new blog layout with y'all! I felt like it was time for something a little different on APFF. I hope you enjoy, and that it's easier to navigate. You'll also notice I have a new feature added to my sidebar "Recent Purchases + Classic Faves" showcasing my newest shopping purchases & also some of my wardrobe staples! Be sure to check it out! 

So, on to this OOTD. This look I'm sharing with you today is one of my favorite ways to look dressy while keeping warm. Our weather in TN is kind of crazy this time (well really all the time, haha) of year. Some days have been absolutely FREEZING (i.e. when I wore this outfit) yet others are super warm (which I'll be honest, are my favorite! I'm already cold 24/7 so I enjoy the sunshine & warm temps haha). But, when the weather decides to be super cold, an outfit like this one is perfect! 

First of all, a big warm winter coat is a must-have! I received this one for Christmas from my sweet parents. I absolutely LOVE the fur trim. Not to mention, it's SUPER warm! The fur hood dresses it up, while the "puffer" type look makes it more casual. These types of coats are my favorite to wear when the temps drop....and it's longer in length so it adds even more warmth!

This headband is one I bought during my F21 haul last fall, and I knew it would be perfect for cooler days this winter! One side is fur-lined; you can't go wrong with fur to warm up and add a pop of fashion to your outfit at the same time. 😊

The key to dressing warm is to layer, layer, layer, of course...and one of my favorite ways to do that is with a scarf! This infinity scarf is an oldie but goodie from Old Navy. I love the cream colors and how they contrast with black!

Finally, I will leave you with this picture of these amazing donuts we had at Judy's Darling Donuts the day we snapped this outfit. This hot pink wall is right beside it, so if you're on the hunt for a pretty wall to take pictures at, look no further than here next time you're in Chattanooga! 

Thank y'all so much for reading, as always! Stay warm & dry on this rainy day in Tennessee!
