My family and I are huge Downton Abbey fans and we cannot wait for the premiere of season four tonight! We have been talking about it all day and discussing what could be in store for each of the characters. (We are heartbroken that Matthew will not be in this season!)  Anyway, I wanted to do a Downton Abbey inspired post today and I thought what better way to celebrate the premiere than to explore the Downton Abbey fashions?!

Last year intricate nail art was huge. Although nail art is still popular, understated yet elegant manicures are the go-to nail trend of the year.  Neutrals, nudes, metallics, and smaller embellishments are the hottest upcoming trends.
Matte nail polish was also very popular last season and still is. Now there are matte topcoats available to turn any color matte!

My Polish of the Moment

I got a bunch of different nail colors for Christmas and I love them all! Right now I am wearing "My Better Half" by Essie and my glamour nail is "Blonde Bombshell" by China Glaze.  Sparkles are always in style on my own personal trend list;)  My cousin got me the "Blonde Bombshell" color for Christmas and I just love it! I have been using it as a glamour nail the past couple times I painted my nails.


There are always new trends I want to try but this year I thought I'd make up a list of trends I want to try in the new year!
This was my outfit for Christmas dinner. A polished sweater and sparkly jewelry is my favorite combination for winter because you can look grown up and professional while still showing off your favorite blingy jewelry. The necklace I'm wearing in this photo is from target. I also wore rings and bracelets to add even more sparkle to the outfit. I love an outfit that I can wear as much jewelry as I feel like. A plain, neutral sweater is the perfect canvas to adorn with as many jewels as you please! The rest of my outfit was skinny jeans and my new ugg boots :)

Here is what I got for Christmas this year. I really wanted a new pair of Ugg boots since they are perfect for walking around campus or anywhere during winter. The boots were my main present and then I got a few other smaller ones. I also bought a few things for myself for Christmas and also to reward myself after a semester of hard work! ;)

I couldn't wait one more day to wear my boots!! It's still pretty warm out, so I wore the boots with a short sleeved t-shirt and light weight fashion scarf. I love the colors in this scarf. I bought it during summer but the orange, brown, and yellow color combo says fall.  Now I can't wait for everything else that says fall! (pumpkins, pumpkin spice coffee, cozy knit sweaters, red and orange leaves, plaid, etc!)  💋
