Giving Thanks In A Mustard Yellow Dress

Thanksgiving was literally a blur. With all the turkey and ham I swallowed and pie I smuggled home I don’t remember a thing. I can’t believe in just a few days it will be December…then…Christmas.

I am not ready for this.

This year I have so much to be thankful for. I have my family, my new family, my friends and my pups. Another thing I am extremely thankful for is YOU. I am so thankful for all my followers and the continuous support I have received for My Little Lifestyles. Never did I think that my personal blog would be as big as it is now and I can’t wait for it to continue to grow. It started out small and turned into something quite amazing. Never give up on your dreams because one day it can turn onto reality.

With all these holidays surfacing, I made sure to take advantage of all the sales going on so I stocked up on all that I could. For this Thanksgiving I really wanted to incorporate fall colors but because weather in California is absolutely bi-polar, wearing winter clothes is almost impossible in 70 degree weather.

My first outfit was pretty basic. Cardigan, scarf, pants, boots, but when the sun hit my face I knew I immediately I’d have to change. I have a million family members that squeeze into my grandmas small house. Lets just say breathing air becomes scarce and I wasn’t about to sweat my face off. So instead of sticking with pants and a cardi I thought Id change things up a bit and try some of my new purchases.

I wanted to be comfortable so I stayed away from tight pants (Too much turkey if you know what I mean) So I decided on a dress. I chose this super simple mustard spaghetti strap shift dress from Missguided.com. It is a loose fitting mustard yellow dress and the straps are placed perfectly. Usually if I buy a dress with non-adjustable straps they are so long and i have to pin them but not on this bad boy. The top is fitting to your chest and flows straight down allowing room for turkey and ham.  Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

I wanted to where tall black boots with this dress but again I felt like it would be too hot so I chose to pair this dress with some short biker boots from H&M.com. A little edge with a little class. Because I wanted to keep this look in the fall/winter category I paired this look with a cozy oversized cardigan from Tilly’s.com.

Just to add a little touch of “Millie” I added this gold drop chain choker from Forever 21. It is as simple as that. I did very simple neutral make up, nothing new there. I also used my beach waver to get effortless waves that took less than 10 minutes to create. If there is one thing a girl needs on her Christmas list, it’s a beach waver!

Yes y’all, I have been M.I.A lately. I have had so much going on this month I literally feel like my head is going to explode. You know in the movies when the actor grabs a pillow and screams into it out of frustration. I have been doing that all week… Minus the pillow. Dozer…

Hey Ladies! The sun is still beating and that means skin can still be shown! I recently was introduced to a clothing company that I have be obsessed with. I am constantly on their site searching and lurking and waiting for something new to come out or for them to restock! Yes, they are that…

Viva Las Vegas!

These past few weeks have been a big blur. Just a month ago I spent the last 4 days in the big city or is it the city of lights? No, the city that never sleeps? Just kidding, sin city! Fortunately I didn’t sin too much this trip… Just a little.

Before hitting Vegas I wanted to stop and see “Seven Magic Mountains” IMG_3472.JPG

Seven Magic Mountains is a little spot in the middle of absolutely no where about 20 minutes before LV. There are these humungous rocks that are stacked on top of each other painted with bright neon colors. It’s a site that every one has to see once in their lives! As weird as it may be, it’s a must on my travel list.

Because of the beautiful desolate scenery, I had to take some photos.

Before I left for Vegas, I did a mini shopping haul at Nordstrom Rack. While I was there I found this adorable Distressed Denim Skirt by Fire that was a price I could not resist. I am not a huge fan of skirts but this one was too cute to pass up and I got so many compliments on it. I also really liked this skirt because it can literally go with anything. You can dress it up or dress it down. No matter what, it’s impossible not to be able to wear it to any occasion.

IMG_3762Since we were driving for a while I wanted to be comfortable, so I paired this skirt with a Simple White Tank with a tie up detail in the center. I wanted to keep this outfit super casual and laid back so for shoes I just paired it with some plan skin-toned flip flops.

What I really love about these Teekee flip flops is not only are they comfortable but they are specifically made in all different skin tone shades to make your legs appear longer. Even though these shoes took forever to get here and run very small, I have to say I am very satisfied with my purchase and new “long legs”.

For accessories I just put on my Esty double horned necklace, some Blue Crown Anderson Sunglasses from Tilly’s and a black hat. My hair was a total mess and it was so windy. So in the end my hat came in handy and I think it ended up completing this look perfectly.

Xoxoxo,

Millie
