Wore this cute little number for an anniversary dinner.. I may be a bit behind on trends lately, but I've really been digging cut-out backs lately.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy new year!

I can't even convince myself when I'm speaking in the voice of someone else

At $15 with an additional 30% off, who could say no to these jeans?! The Old Navy Rockstar skinny jeans are insanely popular, and come in a multitude to washes and colours. I've seen petite, regular, and tall inseams advertised on the website (I've only ever purchased in-store, and I've never paid attention to the leg length), so they definitely cater to everyone. I would definitely recommend trying them on in-store if you can.. it seems that they run teeny-tiny! I purchased a size 2 in all my pairs. Old Navy runs sales very often, so you never end up feeling too guilty when you purchase a pair of fun candy-coloured denim to try.

Congrats to Buggiebean and priincess emily on winning the Joe Fresh lace ballet tee! Please email me at xjoleblog@gmail.com with your name and full shipping address. Thanks to all those who participated!

Hope everyone's been having an amazing holiday so far. Stay safe and warm!

Your words are cold and the season is too

Joe Fresh lace shirt, Zara skirt (similar here and here), H&M necklace

Are you sick of seeing these lace tees already? I'm certainly not! When Joe Fresh does something right, they really do it right! This style is a tad different with a more fitted body and sleeve, which makes it a bit more of a classic but still just as fun as these other two. I thought I would let you guys in on all the lace fun, so keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway soon!
