Best of 2011
I still have a couple outfits left from last week, but I thought I would do a quick post of some of my favorite outfits of 2011. A little recap, if you will. So without further ado - my 21 of 2011: I hop you all have a fantastic New Years Eve. We are actually headed back to Boston today, so no big parties or sparkly dresses for me. Instead, I’m going to be spending the day in...
Red Riding Hood
worn on December 29th, 2011 Boo did pretty good this year. If you follow me on Instagram (username: hollyjollydolly), you may have seen the new iphone case he got me for Christmas. Well, he also got me this cape. Pretty, right? I refer to it as my little red riding hood cape. I guess I have next years halloween costume already started! cape: American Apparel; christmas gift tee: Gap ...
Buffalo Wing Snob
worn on December 27th, 2011 It really started to snow while we were taking these photos. So pretty! I wore this out to go get wings with our friends. Boston has really disappointed us in the chicken wing department. Seriously. We have yet to have good wings in that city. So it feels sooooo good to be home in Buffalo and be able to grab some Duffs or Anchor Bar. Ooooooh, its making me hungry...
What I Wore: Christmas Day
worn on December 25th, 2011 My Christmas outfit! I was always one of those kids that had to wear all of my new stuff that I open Christmas morning that day. It wasn’t Christmas day if I wasn’t wearing a new outfit. And that obviously hasn’t changed. I couldn’t wait to sport my new Epiphanie camera bag and my new boots that I received for christmas, so I wore them right...
worn on December 24th, 2011 This outfit was straight up copied from Julie of Orchid Grey. She just looked so cozy and stylish, I couldn’t help myself replicating it. This outfit also happens to be what I wore on Christmas eve. My brother, Boo, and I spent the evening at my dads house for dinner and exchanging gifts. Good times. sweater: H&M shirt: Ralph Lauren; thrifted jeans:...
In My Life : Scenes From Christmas
I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend! I still have an entire week at home (yippee!), but I’ll be back later with my outfits from the weekend….
Have a Holly Jolly Christmas
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Enjoy this weekend, my friends :) ♥ Holly and Boo
worn on December 16th, 2011 I thought I had packed this dress away for the season. Its lightweight and airy, and its white. So obviously I thought of it as a summer only dress. But then I saw a few other lovely ladies rocking some white during the cold months, and I realized I needed to pull this baby back out from the back of the closet. Some dark tights and cozy sweater easily transformed...
Cold Weather Blogger
worn on December 18th, 2011 Its finally gotten seriously cold here. Fo realz cold. And all the sudden I don’t remember how to be a style blogger any more. You mean I have to take my jacket off now and look happy and warm and pose all pretty? What?! So, how do I do that again? ………………. Do you follow me on Facebook? How about Twitter? sweater:...
Sparkly Things and a Giveaway Winner
worn on December 17th 2011, I wore this out and about saturday afternoon. Boo and I thought we would go out, completely not realizing that it was the last weekend before Christmas weekend. Man, oh man, were there a lot of people. Everywhere. We ended up stopping into the jewelry store to look at wedding bands. We didn’t actually buy any - we still have a bit before we have to do that....
Repeat Offender : Stripes, Bows, and a Purse I...
worn on December 14th, 2011 To see what this repeat offender thing is all about - read my first post. To see the first time I wore this - go here. See that little purse there? Notice that I’ve been carrying it a lot lately? Well, it was actually one of those items that got left behind at my parents house when we moved out to Boston last year, but I rediscovered it when we were...

A Boston Blogger Holiday Mixer
worn on December 11th, 2011 On Sunday I attended a cute little blogger mixer hosted at the LF store in Harvard Square. After meeting up with Jamie (A First Impression) and Sarah (Fadass), we headed to the store for some good old bloggy-girl fun. We styled up some LF clothing for a little photoshoot, decorated santa hats, drank some delicious hot cider, and had a little yankee gift swap. I was...

EBEW : Sparkle
worn on December 10th, 2011 This months EBEW is sequins and sparkle. Surprisingly, I don’t own anything all sequined (say what?!). Oh wait, I do have sequined Converse All Stars. Whoops. But I do also have tops that are blinged out a bit and have some sparkle. This counts, right? P.S - Check back in a little bit for a super awesome giveaway! vest and sweater: Urban Outfitters ...

DIY: Holiday Spirit
*supplies*: holiday fabrics trims and notions commerical patterns or pencil and pattern paper needle, thread, scissors, etc There were two holiday decorations that I knew I wanted to make this year: a tree skirt and our stockings. And with some 50% off fabric from Joanns, I did just that! I wish I could provide you guys with more of a detailed DIY. But to be honest, I kind of winged them...
Black & Blue
worn on December 5th, 2011 There are a handful of shows and movies that, if on TV, I HAVE to watch them. Like Armageddon and Titanic. I guarantee you - if I come across either of those movies in the guide, I won’t bother looking any farther. They suck me in. Lately, its been Storage Wars. I.Can’t.Look.Away. And there seems to be a marathon on as I’m typing this. So I guess...

worn on December 3rd, 2011 I’m not usually a really big pink kind of girl. I like it every once in awhile, but in small doses. This weekend, I felt like going all out. The skirt and sweater were screaming at me to be paired together. And in reality, some of the pink in my skirt is a little brighter and the color of my tights is closer to the purple in the skirt. But its not coming...
Comfy Sweaters & Boyfriend Jeans
worn on November 30th, 2011 Its Friday! Which means the weekend is pretty much here, and it is feeling like a pajama type of weekend. Buuuuuut Boo and I have some things to do. So, I’ll settle for the next best thing - chunky, comfy sweaters and baggy boyfriend jeans. What are your plans for the weekend? sweater: H&M shirt: Urban Outfitters jeans: Gap headband: Acute...
Somewhere Between a Ballerina and a Lumberjack
worn on November 25th, 2011 Shhhhh, I wore this skirt in the previous post. So back to back days. As you may know, traveling and working out of a suitcase can become its own little remix challenge. And sometimes that requires wearing the same skirt two days in a row. An odd mix, perhaps? But I happen to love it. shirt: Zara; Buffalo Exchange skirt: Urban Outfitters; Buffalo Exchange ...
