So during the Holidays it can be especially hard to turn an eye on super cute pieces when out and about shopping for others. I would feel bad about this but alas I work retail and I know about 99.9% of the population does this thing where they shop at a gift ratio of 2/1 (two for themselves and 1 for someone else.) The struggle is real! Truthfully, I’m not that bad but this skirt was something I could not pass up. Especially since the Holiday season is the one time of year we are permitted to wear red at work. Even the cashier who rang me up for it reaffirmed the fabulousness of my new investment. Initially I was torn between this one and what I can only describe as a fluffy white marshmallow esque skirt. The cashier reminded me how brilliant this shade of red was and how I could totally re-envision it for the summer time with more nautical inspired pieces added to it. A foundation for fabulous fashion all year round? Umm yes please! Plus the skirt was only $40…practically free when I think of all the possible outfit combinations. Whenever I’m on the fence about investing in a new addition to my wardrobe I calculate the cost per wear. If I’m going to find an excuse to wear the heck out of it, then it’s a justified purchase! I’ve worn the heck out of some of my favorite pieces that initially cost a few hundred dollars (Louboutins, well worth every penny.) But since I’ve worn some of those shoes almost every day for the past few years I’m looking at like a dollar a day! Which is like i said earlier, practically free and worth every penny!

On a side note, H&M is the place to shop this season for fantastic fashion pieces at super affordable price points. I have yet to be disappointed and find myself saying “OMG I have to have this!” more so than any other retailer. Way to go H&M!

So first and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEARS! And secondly, sorry for the delay in posts. It’s been a busy month between traveling, working (in retail, I feel like my feet will forever be in pain) and getting a new puppy December was one to remember! I wanted to do the typical New Years Eve post with lots of balloons, glitter and crowns with numbers on them but alas on New Years eve I ended up falling asleep around 8. Re-runs of The Walking Dead will do that to a person I suppose.

In any event, I’m super excited for 2015! And actually these past few weeks I’ve learned some pretty interesting and fabulous beauty techniques that I can’t wait to share with you all! So even though this isn’t the sparkly post I had envisioned to kick of 2015 with, this is better. Cute (even cuter with my new puppy Olivia Benson) simple and Just Jess. Cheers to a fabulous new year dear readers!

Meet my new puppy and light of my life, Olivia Benson! She’s the cutest little white ball of fluff since my sister’s dog Bella. Yes she’s a morkie and yes she’s perfect. I’m in love.
