Casual Glam for the New Year

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Happy New Year everyone! Nathan and I traveled to Nashville for Christmas to visit my mom, and then to southern California to visit my dad and that side of the family. We had a great time visiting family, but we were happy to be home. Sadly, Nathan and I are still sick, so our 2018 has been off to a slow start. So, even though we are sitting on the couch in our PJ’s with unwashed hair, I wanted to share one of my favorite looks for the New Year with you.

My latest Peppertrain piece (The Statement) is one of my favorites. The photo really doesn’t do it justice. Kaitlin, the boss lady behind Peppertrain, handmade this necklace (and all her pieces), and truly has an eye for creating unique, beautiful pieces.

My favorite pair of boots this season – the Stuart Weitzman Cling Boot. I found these beauties discounted and they’ve barely left my feet. I’m obsessed. The scarlet color is the perfect hue that goes with just about everything. They’re also the type of boot that can be dressed up or down. I’ve worn them with a velvet cocktail dress to cropped jeans. Definitely worth the investment, and I’ve found a few on sale for you and linked them below!

The Golden Hour Skirt from Anthropologie is gorgeous. It’s has a delicate gold stitching that catches the light in all the right ways. I’m also only 5’3 (and a half 😉 ) and this skirt hits right below my knees. I usually pair it with either a black turtle neck sweater (like the Clancy Ribbed Turtleneck) or a oversized sweater (like the Tisbury Turtleneck Pullover sweater). Toss on a statement necklace or earrings and your favorite booties and you’re casual glam for the win.

I’ve been trying to sell the domain name “” for almost a year and no one wants to buy it. Can’t understand why. Would be a great name for a blog, as well as an awesome brand: apparel, accessories, jewelry, you name it. I’ll even throw in some great logo ideas. And get this…it’s less than $1K. Won’t someone grab it and run? I am 100% sure there’s a clever blogger out there somewhere who could turn Casual Glam into a 6-figure payday. C’mon ladies, it’s pocket change. Make me an offer. I’ll probably wait exactly 3 seconds before saying Yes and Thank you.

I’m so sorry your sick! Me and my family were all sick over Christmas which was such a bummer but thankfully we’re all over it now. Feel better!!

Hey Laura! It was definitely going around. It’s so hard with all of the plane travel too! Glad you’re family is on the mend!

Obsessed with this look from head to toe. Especially this glam skirt!

Thanks Greta! I LOVE this skirt. It’s the perfect combo of comfy glam.

I LOVE the gold sparkle in this skirt! So pretty! Happy New Year and I hope y’all are feeling better!


Thanks Kim! Happy New Year to you too!

adore your skirt!!

I have been wanting those boots for a while and it’s so nice to learn they’re on sale! I am so in love with the way you styled these 🙂

GIRL. I know it. I couldn’t pull the trigger until I saw that they were finally on sale. You should definitely try to snag you a pair!

Absolutely LOVE this look. So so pretty. The color tones are perfection. I totally agree that Stuart Weitzman makes a great boot. Their designs are so chic and the most comfortable footwear I own. Hope you and your hubby feel better soon. xo

Thanks Annette! SW is my favorite. If I had to pick a brand of shoes to wear for the rest of my life – that would be it!

Love this outfit and these images are absolutely STUNNING.

Thank you so much!!!

I loveeee the shimmer in this skirt- happy new year!

xo, Kristina

Isn’t it so fun! I also love that this skirt doesn’t break the bank either. Happy New Year to you too!

Let’s run in a meadow together!
