I had to take these outfit pictures twice because the first time I took them, I was standing against a dark grey background and my legs totally blended in. Come on Kacie! Grey jeans against a grey background?! What were you thinking?! It looked like my legs had disappeared and I was just a floating head and torso. The second time around I didn’t want to take any chances of blending in so I went with a white background. Of course, now my skin blends with the white background because I’m as pale as a ghost.
This outfit kind of happened by accident. The top I’m wearing is actually my pajama top. I wore it to bed and the next day when I was getting dressed, I put on the skirt and thought hmmm, this looks pretty cute with my pj top so I went with it 🙂 Also I’m feeling sick and just want to stay in my pj’s all day so this was a nice compromise. And then I went to the grocery store to buy soup because like I’ve said before, I live a really glamorous life, and then I got home and traded my skirt for sweatpants and heels for “bubba the boot”/my custom foot brace and now I’m resting in bed and have no clue what I’m going to do for next weeks posts because I feel too sick to take pictures and it’s supposed to be raining for the next 4 days which makes it difficult to take pictures. But I do have an exciting giveaway coming on Monday so that’s good. Want to know what you could win?! Ray Ban sunglasses! Yay! Be sure to come back on Monday to enter 🙂
I got to see my adorable little niece, Stevie Rae, last weekend. She’s 6 months old and I have been loving watching her personality develop but I gotta say, I’m not a huge fan of this latest development. She used to be all about her Auntie Kacie but not anymore. Nope! Now she’s all about her Uncle Cody. Every time I held her, she’d reach for Uncle Cody. And she wouldn’t smile for me but she’d smile for Uncle Cody. What?!?! Has Uncle Cody ever changed a diaper? No. Has Auntie Kacie? Yes! Had Uncle Cody bought 15 onesies that say “uncles little lady” or “my uncle rocks”? No. Has Auntie Kacie bought 15 “auntie” onesies? Yes! Can’t Stevie Rae see that I’m supposed to be her favorite?! Maybe she’s getting sick of me giving her non-stop kisses? lol.
I love the combo of leather and lace! It’s like tough & sweet, sugar & spice, peanut butter & jelly, salt & pepper, Bert & Ernie, Scooby & Shaggy, Thelma & Louise, Mickey & Minney. Ok so now I’m just listing classic couples. lol. But you get what I’m saying…leather and lace are the perfect pairing!
I have been wanting a tan coat for soooo long! Like two years long! Ok, so I kind of forgot that I wanted one last year but two years ago I wanted one and this year I’ve been wanting one so that’s a long time of wanting. Here’s the problem, the tan coat I really wanted was hanging in my sisters closet. So what’s a little sister to do when her older sister has the coat she wants? She steals it from her, of course. I mean, that’s what sisters are for, right?! So I was all ready to break into my sisters house (a sketch of the floor plan, treats for the dogs, etc.) to steal the coat…and yes, maybe also kidnap my niece because she’s my favorite person ever and so stinkin’ cute, but I didn’t have to because my sister gave me the coat! Isn’t she the best sister ever?! Thanks Jamie! Love you!
Oh and can we just admire that last picture where I’m taking a selfie of my outfit? I posted it to Instagram but I’m so proud of it that I had to post it here too. lol. Have you ever tried to take a picture like that? It’s the hardest thing ever! I always end up just getting my upper half in the picture and my legs look pretty much non-existent. Haha! It took me like 20+ pictures before I finally got this one. Cody was waiting patiently for me to finish taking selfie pictures of my outfit in Bed Bath & Beyond and when I finally got this good one, I yelled “nailed it” and starting giving out high fives. lol.
Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to hug a cloud? Well my friends, just put on this sweater and you will know. It seriously felt like I was wrapped in a cloud all day. Softest sweater ever! I can’t believe this sweater was only $20! $20 I tell you! $20 to be hugged by a cloud all day?! I’ll take it!
I am so excited to share with you all the fun “What’s in Your Red Carpet Clutch” video I did with Glam and Skinny Cow! It was so much fun! I met two awesome bloggers (check them out at Perfect 10 SF & Adore to Adorn), I got my hair and makeup done by Glam, and I got to eat a lot of Skinny Cow chocolates! So yummy! 🙂 It was such an amazing experience! It was a little scary driving home from San Fransisco though because a homeless man starting knocking on my window while I was stuck in traffic. I was terrified and didn’t know what to do so I told him to go away. Then he started yelling “Oh no she didn’t” and yelled at his friend to come over. Luckily the traffic started moving just in time. Anyways, be sure to check out the video. I’d love if you’d share, like, or comment on it 🙂 And make sure you subscribe to the Glam Youtube Channel.
Thank you for all your support! It means the world to me! Have a great weekend!

So I’m not sure what the heck is happening with these pictures but when I upload them to the internet, it’s making the color of my jacket so much more saturated. The booties are true to the color they are in real life and I’m still looking as pale as ever but for some reason, the denim jacket is looking brighter than it actually is. When I open the pictures on my computer, the jacket looks normal but as soon as I put them online, they change color. It’s not doing this to any of my other pictures I upload so I’m not sure what’s going on. It’s sad to say. but I am not smarter than the computer. lol.
I’m going to tell you a little secret about myself. When I was little, after my birthday and Christmas, I’d set up a display in my bedroom of all my gifts and I’d keep it up for what some might say was “way too long”…and I still do it. I kid you not, right now in my bedroom, there is a lovely display of all my gifts. Front and center of my display is the leopard purse my 87 year old grandpa got me for Christmas and the black scarf my dad got me. (Also, my new cuff bracelet which wasn’t a Christmas gift but it’s new and I love it so I added it to the display 🙂 ) Do my dad and grandpa know how to shop for me or what?! It probably helps that I email everyone links with the exact items I want and strict instruction to only buy what’s on my list…do not go rouge! (yes, I’m aware this makes me sound controlling/high-maintenance/not-in-the-true-spirit-of-gift-giving/etc. but I promise you I’m a good person) My grandpa, he stuck to the list. But my dad, my dad went rouge. You see, in my immediate family we draw names to exchange gifts. My dad drew me and he did. not. stick. to. my. list! Uh oh! But guess what?! He nailed it! He got me the gorgeous cashmere scarf I’m wearing in today’s post and yesterday’s post (along with several other items that were on my list) and I love it so much! It was such the perfect surprise gift and my dad was so happy when he saw how much I loved it. He said he was a little nervous veering from my list but it totally paid off! I guess I shouldn’t be so strict when it comes to my list. Lesson learned. Ok honestly, I’ll probably still be strict…lesson not learned 🙂 Thanks so much Dad and Grandpa (and mom for helping Grandpa shop) for the amazing Christmas gifts!
