friday's fancies #14: white christmas.

friday's fancies #14: white christmas.



today's friday's fancies theme over on {long distance loving} is white christmas. i had a lot of fun creating this look, because i don't usually reach for white - of any kind - during the winter. so this was a fun little challenge! this see by chloe plisse bow dress is a sweet little choice - i am loving the cream color, plus it would be perfect for christmas morning mass. for a couple pops of berry color, i chose this clarendon foxglove pink tweed herringbone jacket by mulberry (i'm beginning to realize i reach for mulberry over & over - favorite designer?), as well as this ultra-fun light pink sparkle sinemay fascinator. i'm not gonna lie - i was channeling blair waldorf a bit with the headband choice. 

i really just need to go ahead & bite the bullet with a nars turkish delight purchase. i put this particular gloss in lots of my looks, because it's so girly, yet neutral. it needs to become part of my real life collection asap.

i chose gray tights because... well, i just love them. gray is one of my colors, & i think gray tights are such an interesting alternative to the classic black. they also make this look softer & more feminine. and how could i pass up the nude jimmy choo pumps? they are pefectly effortless for this look. to top it all off, i chose this cream lanvin quilted clutch. it's ultra chic & understated.


merry christmas, everyone!

Such a classy and chic look! I love that jacket. I think nude pumps are a must have for any wardrobe. I have to get my hands on a pair.

Have a fabulous weekend,

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
