fridayfaves1. Loving this look that I found on Pinterest! The crop top (which I’m still not gutsy enough to try (no pun intended!)) is a perfect compliment to the full faux leather midi skirt in Pantone’s color of the year for 2015. (
2. After having the best Kale salad at Rutherford Grill in Napa, I had to recreate it at home. This recipe is spot on, and I’ve had it three days in a row! (

3. This gold monogrammed mug from Anthropologie is my favorite mug, and is also one of my favorite gifts to give. Fill it with a package of the recipient’s favorite kind of coffee or tea, and you’ve got an easy (and inexpensive) gift! (

4. Of all the glam Thanksgiving décor that I saw, I loved Khloe Kardashian’s tabletop décor the most! Her dining furniture is to-die-for, and those stunning flower arrangements, candles, and gold flatware were perfection! (

asosskirtsweaterdetailfullshoesFirst, a word to the wise – do not try to tone your blonde hair at home with a developer. I learned my lesson the hard way and I’ll be rocking these warm roots for awhile!
This subtle sweater adds a little glam twist with just a touch of shimmer that makes an understated addition to any outfit. I love pairing it with this front slit skirt and heels. Plus, you don’t have to worry about adding a necklace!

Maxi skirts are a staple for me during the Spring and Summer, and I love reinventing looks with them during the colder months too. To make a maxi skirt a bit more Fall appropriate, I pair it with darker colors…in this case, black. Add a faux leather jacket for the evening and you’re set for the day & night!maxiskirtleatherblackoutfit

Right.Altuzarra1When I first saw the Altuzarra for Target collection, I knew I had to have this snake printed sweatshirt. Anything snake printed, and it’s mine. And what better combo than this print on a sweatshirt? Perfection.altuzarracloseupI paired the Altuzarra number with my most sparkly bib necklace and a quilted faux leather skirt to give it an added dose of glam.Altuzarra2Sweatshirt: Altuzarra for Target, on sale now!//Skirt: Mossimo, similar//Necklace: Forever 21, similar//Booties: Old Navy//Bag: Forever 21, similar//

balloonsWell looky here! Notice anything different? Over the past couple of months, I have been bursting with excitement about the makeover that has been taking place on this little blog of mine. It’s nowhere near done, but it is a work in progress, and I couldn’t wait any longer to get back to blogging after a one year hiatus.glitterNot only has All Gussied Up gotten a big refresh…a lot has changed over here over the past year! I’ve gotten a divorce, found new love, and a new outlook on life. I am happier than ever, and I can’t wait to share what inspires me with you.
I love sharing beauty tips, how-to’s, DIY’s, travel tips, and more. As a fan of fashion who is always following trends, I shop on a budget. So, I’ll show you outfits that I put together with older items in my wardrobe mixed with new (because who can buy a new outfit everyday?!).
