Bestie Christmas Shoot!

Y’all, can you believe that Christmas is only 10 days away?! I surely can’t!  You know ’tis the season to do the proper blogging thing and have a Christmas tree photo shoot ha!  My best friend, Aimee, whose blog is called Southern Fried Fashion, and I scheduled a fun and silly shoot on what turned out to be the coldest morning thus far this year in Nashville!  It was in the teens when we woke up, and it was only in the upper 20s when we were shooting that morning.  The amazing Morgan DeVita took all of our photographs.  She is so great and was such a trooper for sticking with us in the freezing cold temps!  Y’all check out her website and follow her on Instagram to see her beautiful work!  Aimee has great style, gives tons of beauty tips, and shares cute little girls clothing, so go give her a follow on Instagram or subscribe to her blog!  She also did a post of our shoot and shared some different photos!  Thank goodness for a bestie that shares my love of blogging and shopping, or my poor husband would probably go insane!  She is a pro at posing and has the cutest darn expressions, while I look like a big ‘ol goober in most of these shots haha!  Y’all are just gonna have to accept that fact and love me just the same! I’ll list all of mine and Aimee’s outfit details below the last two individual photos of each of us for you guys.

My Outfit Details:

Our outfits are two totally different looks, and both are perfect for the holidays!  I chose to wear my fav Christmas plaid (surprise, surprise!) layered under this J.Crew crewneck sweater in heather graphite.  This JCF plaid is almost sold out, but here is the J.Crew option, which is fully stocked!this one is anhere is a very similar one at less than $27!  Y’all know I love a good layered piece, and this sweater is perfect for just that.  It is a thicker material, so if you want something lighter, this sweater is also an option, which you’ve seen me wear numerous times.  I also wore my faux leather Spanx leggings for the first time on this day, and these things are seriously a girl’s best friend!!  Y’all know I wouldn’t lie to you.  These jokers suck you in, smooth you out, and make everything look goood, friends!  They also come in this super cute moto look.  I’m wearing a small in my sweater, plaid top, and leggings.

I just bought this Sugarfix necklace in the clear version last Friday, and I’ve already worn it 4 times…It’s just that good!!  It’s the perfect addition to any outfit needing a bit of sparkle.  It can go with anything from jeans and a tee to a date-night dress.  If you haven’t checked out the Sugarfix jewelry line at Target by Baublebar, you are missing out!  They have tons of pretty necklaces and earrings at great affordable prices.  They would be perfect for stocking stuffers, and Target has free shipping right now!  You know I couldn’t miss out on an opportunity for some pattern mixing, so I added my fav leopard pumps for that extra pop!

 I absolutely love Aimee’s outfit!  I love mixing stripes and plaid in all colors, and she did it perfectly.  Her striped turtleneck is so cute and versatile (she’s wearing a small).  You can wear it as she did tucked into a skirt, layered under a sweater or vest, or by itself with jeans and a statement necklace.  The best part, it’s only $18 and is offered in 5 other colors/patterns!  Old Navy also has a ton of cute blanket scarves right now in so many patterns!  I may or may not own 3 of these.  Hey, at least I admit I have a problem!  Her red skirt is from last year, but this one is very similar and is super cute.  These red Kendra Scott earrings were the perfect compliment to her skirt and are so perfect for the holidays!  She topped it off with these super comfy Frye boots that are on sale for less than $250!  We really had so much fun doing this silly little shoot, so I hope y’all enjoyed these pictures and laughing along with us!  Have a wonderful weekend, friends!!

Thanks for stopping by!
