Last year at around this time I created a short list of goals that I wanted to accomplish in 2011. I can't believe that it has been a year since I wrote these for myself and looking back I am very happy to say that I accomplished all of these goals with the exception of 1. If you want to see the original post you can see it here but if not I copied and pasted the list for you below.
Work out one more day during the week. - CHECK
Find the perfect shade of red lipstick. - CHECK, Red Lizard has absolutely become a staple in my make up bag.
Be more forgiving of others. - CHECK
Find more blogs to love! - CHECK, I love showcasing your style every Friday in my "What I Love about Your Look Post."
Learn to use my camera with out the aid of the auto setting.- The only one I didn't accomplish. I will try again in 2012. :(
I leave you all with this beautiful sparkly dress. I hope you all have a great New Years Eve, have fun, be safe, and see you all next year!

I love a great D.I.Y. and I have been wanting to try to make something for my cousin that will soon give birth to a baby girl. I love confetti system line of tissue paper garland but also want to incorporate her little ones name. So I am thinking glitter, letters, and long tissue garland will turn into something fantastic. Until I am able to find the supplies I need for this project I wanted to share the fun DIY I found for the garland.

Sorry I have been MIA. I took a vacation from life for the Christmas holiday and it was great but I missed you all. I can't believe that 2011 is almost over. I wanted to take a quick look back at some of my favorite outfit posts. I hope they were some of yours too!

Hi Everyone, I can't believe that its already Christmas. Another short post because I am busy trying to make my mom's table look like this. LOL! Just Kidding. Isn't it beautiful though? I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and may Santa bring you everything you have been wishing for.

With the holidays quickly approaching I have been so busy buying gifts, working, wrapping, and packing to go home. I know that I have my own home in Dallas but I will always call my childhood home, my home too. Am I the only one that does that? So I know that the holidays are supposed to be about giving but in the midst of shopping for others Anthropologie turned on their EXTRA 50% off all sale. How could I pass that up? I was eyeing this clutch over the weekend and decided against it, but at an extra 50 off I couldn't pass it up. How are you all coming with your x mas shopping?

I bought these fun rust cords from Anthropologie 2 weekends ago. They have the perfect rise and flare leg and I loved them so much I bought a 2nd pair in navy. I originally got this shirt to wear it out on the town however since I don't get out on the town as much as I would like I decided to throw it on today with my denim jacket. It was the perfect mix of casual and dressy, just a little Monday sparkle.

I found this image the other day on Instagram. I loved her earrings so I quickly sent her a message to find out where she got them and it turns out she made them! She owns a shop on Esty called, Creolelioness, and I love supporting Etsy businesses when I can. These earrings have absolutely been added to my never ending list of things to buy.

I love this jacket that I picked up on Black Friday a couple weeks ago. I didn't realize how large the check pattern was until I saw these pictures which makes me love it even more. Its the perfect mix of hunter green and midnight grey and can absolutely be dressed up or down. Can you see this with a little sequin number underneath?

If you follow me on Instagram you have already seen a preview of this outfit. It was chilly outside this weekend but I didn't want to wear a huge winter coat so I threw on a few layers instead. This is the end result.

I found this blazer at Anthropologie on super sale over the summer when it was 100 degrees outside. You can't tell from the picture but its a pretty thick knit blazer. I'm sure no one was thinking that in a few months it would be freezing outside but I did and quickly scooped it up, to save it for later. I have been patiently waiting to rip the tags off this baby and wear it and today was the day.

My name is Jen and I am addicted to Instagram! Ever since getting it I can't stop looking at and loading photos. If you love it as much as I do please look me up, blankwhiteframes, and you will get more of a glimpse into my life. I wanted to share a few of my favorite moments from this past weekend.
It rained the entire weekend, so I pretty much lived in my rain boots. Remember this sweater?
A quick snap shot with a warm cup of Spiced Apple Cider, one of my favorite drinks at Starbucks!
A beautiful table of dishes at my weekly trip to Anthro.
I finally made time to decorate my tree.

I bought this Opening Ceremony jacket last year from Anthro and only got the chance to wear it once. The weather here has been so much cooler, so I pulled it out from the back of my closet and paired it with these fun pants and tee. I wasn't sure what shoes to wear so after going through a couple pair I decided on my new favorite pair of black boots which also happen to be Opening Ceremony too. So I guess it ended up being an Opening Ceremony Day.
