Striped Sweater Dress + Nic D’Andrea Bracelets
I fully admit that I have gone Valentine’s Day crazy with all the red and pink, but it’s such a good color combo! And this striped dress is no exception! I actually thought I wouldn’t like it, but the colors were more gorgeous in person, plus it was on sale 🙂 My favorite part about a sweater is if it’s long enough to be a dress. A major win in my book! I sized up to a small for length, but I actually regret not sticking with my usual XS. This is the perfect outfit for transitioning into Spring while it’s still cold, though! The dress would be cute with OTK boots too!
Now, for accessory details! I am so happy to be teaming up with Nic D’Andrea to showcase their pretty arm candy! Yall know my favorite bracelets are the ones that are stackable because I love wearing them up my arm! Hahah. Nic D’Andrea has so many that you can mix and match! But they all compliment each other regardless of which bracelets you choose. I think my personal favorite is this Double Stack Bracelet! Go figure 🙂 They also have inspirational charms on each one, which I love. All the pieces are super affordable (under $35) and you can get an extra 25% off with my discount code, Kelsielove25! The coolest part about Nic D’Andrea is that they donate $1 to Girls Inc. for every bracelet sold. Girls Inc. is a non-profit organization that teaches girls to grow up strong, smart, and bold! Be sure to check out Nic D’Andrea’s website for all the bracelets HERE!

2 Ways To Style Boyfriend Jeans With Vault 206 Boutique
LEOPARD SWEATER | PINK SWEATER | JEANS | FLATS
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I have a hard time finding a good pair of boyfriend jeans. Especially factoring in my height, all the ones I’ve tried are way too long! And I get pretty impatient waiting to have them hemmed. Lol! When I found these from Vault 206 Boutique, I decided to try them out again, and I’m so glad I did. They are the perfect length, and you can cuff/roll the hem however you want! I also like that you can style boyfriend jeans different ways, so I’m showing yall my two favorites here: casual with flats and dressed up with heels!
The first look is cute and easy! The best combination no doubt. I paired my jeans with a tan leopard print sweater and pointed flats from Vault 206! The sweater is super soft and will transition perfectly into Spring with white skinnies. And of course, I loved the bow on my flats. I spiced the second outfit up with a hot pink sweater also from Vault 206 and leopard heels! I am all about pink and leopard print regardless of the season. Anywho, this is a great outfit option for date night or girls night! There’s something so chic about boyfriend jeans and pumps! 🙂
For sizing reference, I am a small in both sweaters, a size 3 in the jeans, and a size 7 in the flats. You can buy these pieces at Vault 206 Boutique! Use KELSIE15 for 15% off your entire purchase. Don’t forget to check out their other new arrivals HERE!

Cutest Cardigans with Bella Ella Boutique
CARDIGAN | TOP (Similar) | JEANS | BOOTS | HAT | PONCHO
Happy New Year’s Eve 🙂
Do yall have any fun plans tonight? I am currently in Nashville with my best friends! This is the 3rd year in a row we have done NYE here, and it never disappoints. We end up spending WAY too much money between shopping and Broadway but always worth it! Haha.
My striped cardigan, leopard poncho, and black jeans are from Bella Ella Boutique, and I’m pretty obsessed! Bella Ella is an adorable online boutique I recently discovered, and I knew yall would love them too. Anywho, I am all about colorful stripes (shocking, right? Lol) so this cardigan is a must-have. It’ll transition so well into the spring! And what do I love equally as much as bright colors? Probably, (most definitely) leopard print! I styled the outfit with this poncho for a different look. Both are paired with the cutest high-waisted black jeans that have a front bow! A huge selling point for me! (They fit TTS, I am wearing a 3) Everything is linked below! Drop a comment if you have any questions 🙂

5 Tips For Having The Best NYE + Sparkly Outfit Ideas
DRESS | JACKET (Similar) | BOOTS
Along with fun and sparkly outfit ideas, I also wanted to share some tips I’ve learned from going out on NYE the past two years. My friends and I are heading to Nashville for the third year in a row, and I am BEYOND excited! We always have the best time ringing in the New Year there!
1: Wear Comfy Shoes
You can totally make comfy and cute shoes work on NYE! I have made the mistake of wearing pairs that were too tall with zero support. The best option is over the knee boots with a lower heel (like the ones linked above) because they’re easy to walk in and they’re warm!
2: Buy NYE Tickets Early
Truth be told, this is a mistake we make every year. Lol! If you miss the window to buy early bird tickets, get to the bar you prefer EARLY! We went around 9 pm last year, and it was so smart. No lines yet either!
3: Dress Cute & Warm
Most places are pretty cold on NYE, so bring a jacket if you plan on wearing a sequin dress. Or go with a long sleeve! Either way, you’ll want that coat while waiting for an Uber at 3 am, promise 🙂
4: Eat Dinner Before Drinking All Night
This is pretty self-explanatory. Eat some kind of dinner before you head out, or you will regret it in the morning! Lol.
5: BE SAFE
Seriously you guys!! PLEASE be so careful, especially if you plan on going out to a NYE party. Always be aware of your surroundings and stay close to your friends! Hello, buddy system!
PS: Be on the lookout for an After Christmas Sale blog post coming December 26th!! My exact dress is 30% off right now making it $20!!
