by Lauren on December 18, 2014

this is very special tres chic post for the holidays. instead of doing three individual pictures of a trend; Caitlin, Andrea and I styled this month’s trend altogether. for this month, we chose to style a LBD for all of the upcoming holiday parties. whether its a Christmas or New Year’s party you’re going to, you can always style your LBD to find the perfect look. we put together three outfits to give you some holiday party inspiration. also, check at the bottom for a small announcement.

cfg update – after some thoughtful consideration, i am going to take a break from blogging. not because i haven’t loved this community or enjoyed this little happy place but because i need time to refresh. with an amazing job that can be extremely busy at times, i need some time to think about where i want to devote my attention and focus to. these past four years of sharing my everyday thoughts and feelings on cfg have been very rewarding. i may consider starting up again after the new year but am going to take some time off for now. thanks for all of your support!

love, lo


cfg lately.

i haven’t done one of these posts in awhile so i thought i would share some Instagrams from what i have been up to lately. it’s been busy over here with baby showers, weddings and work events galore. i think this time of year can be the busiest with everyone trying to cram in everything before the holidays.

holiday decorations. i kind of jumped the gun this year on decorating for Christmas. i usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving but when i saw these adorable decorations from Target, i knew i had to have them. someone really needs to start limiting my Target shopping trips.















red holiday coffee cups. enough said. these things make me extremely happy along with coffee dates and cozy chats with good friends.















sister time. i haven’t seen this little one in a month or two so some sister time was definitely in order. we have perfected the sister selfie.
























Tivol KC. i attended The Diamond Celebration Event at Tivol and enjoyed sipping on some bubbly and trying on beautiful diamonds. i am already eyeing a few pieces for my Christmas list this year. everything is so gorgeous!















love, lo
