Hi babes! December is here and that means there are tons of parties, celebrations, and gatherings popping up on the calendar!
Not sure what outfit to wear or where to start? I’m here for ya boo! You know I love to plan ahead – and that’s exactly what I’m going to help you do!
I’m super excited to share with ya’ll my favorite pieces this season – from sweaters, jeans, the BEST holiday dress, boots and skirts. There are SO many fun items to share in this post!
Today I wanted to share 7 Christmas or Holiday party looks you can wear – ranging from casual to super dressed up! Each outfit I put together is meant to flatter that beautiful hourglass frame. I will explain in each option how we can accomplish this with each look.
With so many incredible food options in Dallas, it can be hard to narrow down where to dine on a Friday night! I prefer a restaurant with good energy, good food, and great service.
After working a long week, I cherish the moments I get to sit down and be humbly served a delicious, thoughtfully prepared meal. I typically cook meals Sunday-Thursday evening for my little family. But the weekends are my time to unwind, reward myself and enjoy my loved ones!
For those of you who are new here – my name is Mary and I am the founder of The Candid Millennial. I’m SO excited to have you here and talk ALL things millennial!
Before we get started – I just wanted to make a quick comment on the outfit featured in this post. I am L O V I N G this wide leg pant trend this season. This pair of LEITH pants is SO cute and comes in SO many beautiful colors. Plus, they’re under $100!
Like you and many of my readers, I fill my life with all the things: career, side hustle (blog), charity, family and so much more. My biggest motivator is personal growth and career growth, all while trying to find “balance” in my life.
The title of this post might not be the most classy, politically correct, or even appealing to some women – but I can’t help and be completely candid on the types of Google searches I’ve found myself get lost in over the years.
I know, I know, some of you might be thinking “could this post be any more narcissistic?!” I mean yeah, it could be, but who doesn’t want to put their best foot forward and present the world with the best image of themselves?!
If you don’t care, that’s totally cool. Let’s catch up on the next post. But today I wanted to share all the selfie-taking secrets I’ve collected over the years and what I’ve narrowed down to what I call “selfie essentials”.
For my motivated millennials out there – today I wanted to talk about some different ways I’ve been able to leverage my knowledge, talent and skills to make more money and essentially more than triple my income in the past four years.
You might not realize it, but often times there are opportunities every single day that we come across to increase our income. We can choose to ignore these opportunities, or jump right on them! More often than not, we also fail to recognize that most opportunities are created by us!
But first – these pants are SO trendy and happen to be ultra flattering for the hourglass or pear-shaped woman!! They completely accentuate and highlight those BEAUTIFUL curves by hugging that gorgeous waist!
Summer is officially coming to an end – and this weekend there are going to be TONS of crazy sales going on. One of my favorite retailers is the Banana Republic. I mostly shop their clothes during fall and winter because I love their sweaters, blazers, and jeans. The quality is typically really good and I can get some staple pieces at a great price!
TODAY’S THE DAY!! Y’all I have a confession.. I couldn’t sleep last night bc I was wayyyyy too excited for this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Quick tip: check my Insta stories for live clips of me trying on my fave items!
I’m going to try and get y’all some better pics than just in the dressing room, but for now that’s all I got (part time blogger problems). ANYWHO y’all – this year I really took my shopping to a whole new level!!
Can ya’ll believe July is already almost half way over?! IMO – we still have 8 weeks to rock our cute summer wedges! I’ve found SO many cute styles this year that I wanted to share with ya’ll in case you haven’t found THE pair just yet.
Since summer is quickly coming to an end – you also might be able to find these styles on sale. I’m confident each of these wedges will still be in style next summer!
Black Friday is probably my favorite holiday of the year because I don’t think I like anything more than getting a great deal. I’m always sending friends coupons or sharing the latest sales in G-chat. I mean why pay full price for anything when you can always find a way to get it on sale?!
So low and behold, I am sharing my top 10 Black Friday picks this holiday season. Please note – I will list where you can buy these items online NOW.
Can ya’ll believe Thanksgiving is already here? I’m going to try and get a post up tomorrow with some last minute outfit inspiration for the big feast!
This year has been the fastest year of my life. I’m not sure if it has to do with my career change to sales or just the simple fact that time goes by faster as you get older, but I sure am wishing time would slow down just a bit!
This past weekend I visited my 95 year old grandfather in Nebraska. It’s honestly been at least 15 years since I’ve been to Oakland. It was actually nice to slow down, stop the rat race and smell the roses. Not literally, but you know 🙂
Stress, commitments and deadlines have all kept my mind super wired. Sometimes I don’t know if I can take much more, wondering if everything I have going on is going to lead me to a mental breakdown. Am I the only one who feels this way?!
Thankfully, the holidays are just around the corner and we will all get to slow it down for a minute, relax and spend time with those we love.
If you’re trying to find a way to unwind, relax and give your mind a rest, I have three of my favorite tips to do just that.
