Hey friends, happy Thursday to you! Last night, I pulled my last (I hope to God) all-nighter in 2017 and hopefully ever. A few weeks ago, I was incredibly sick, traveling and overwhelmed with the amount of projects I had going on which ultimately prolonged my sickness causing me to fall about 1-2 weeks behind on work. However, last night I got more than caught up on work and can finally breathe, both literally and figuratively. As much as I know all-nighters and lack of sleep are harmful, I am so proud that I was able to get caught on work, personal business and blogging just in time to relax before the holidays + have time to plan for the new year. I have so many great things planned that I want to work on in 2018 which includes 1. Being 1 week ahead in all work/projects/campaigns/tasks 2. Saying “YES” to things that move my heart + 3. Stop playing the comparison game. In a few short weeks, I will be sharing more about my 2018 goals but I feel confident about going into this new year ready to live more boldly and free.
Today, I’m sharing an easy wardrobe trend trip for winter: ponchos + oversized sweaters. Right before Thanksgiving, I shared this outfit on Instagram and y’all loved it. So today I’ve rounded up 20 ponchos + oversized sweaters that I am loving for this winter. The best part about this trend is that it is easy to layer with tanks or tees. I tend to love the ponchos that have built in sleeves because they usually require less layering and styling, such as the one I am wearing below. Below, see of my favorite ponchos that you have to add to winter your closet ASAP! In the comments, let me know what your favorite winter tread is. -xo, Azanique <3

Hey friends! I hope everyone is having a great start to their Wednesday. I am so glad that humpday is finally here and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel AKA this week. As the days get shorter, I feel like my body gets more and more tired and I can’t function like a normal person after like 9pm. As soon as 8pm hits, I feel like my body goes into sleep mood and everything slows down so I am trying to kick myself into normal sleep/work flow to combat that. Anyway, this weekend I will be attending a shopping event and am taking y’all along via social media, so make sure you are following me on Instagram, Facebookand Twitter.
With the temperatures dropping and everyone running around like crazy trying to get ready for the holidays, I am loving casual + comfortable everyday style. I’m in love with this loose fitting kimono styled with white jeans and booties. Y’all know white jeans with knee rips are my go to piece of clothing to style, so I had to throw them on with this simple look. My neutral taupe booties are a fall/winter staple since they can be styled with anything and I can wear them all day long without my feet hurting or feeling uncomfortable. I stacked on simple arm candy and my favorite monogram ring from Marley Lilly, of course. If you’re looking for a simple everyday look to get your errands done, get lunch with your friends and head to cocktail hour, this is the perfect style for you. Everything I am wearing is on sale right now so make sure you click the pictures below and shop this post. That’s all I have for y’all today but I hope everyone has a lovely day! -xo, Azanique <3
Happy Monday, sweet friends! How was y’alls weekend? For all my lovely readers that got snow this weekend, I hope y’all enjoyed every second of it! I was secretly praying for snow in my town but did not see one snowflake this weekend except for on social media. I’m crossing my fingers for snow in the near future but until then, I’ll be enjoying this cold weather from my couch with a cup of coffee in my hand and binging on Keeping Up With the Kardashians marathons.
Y’all, a few months ago I shared the most adorable wrap dress from PinkBlush, which was my first time styling a wrap dress. Today I’m back with the cutest paisley wrap dress that you can wear for Christmas dinner or a holiday party. The dress falls right about the knee, so the length is perfect for any setting (casual or business casual) + the material is soft with a little stretch. I’m all my jewelry favorites with this wrap dress that include tassel earringsfrom SugarFix, blue velvet pumps and my Kate Spade watch (that I basically wear 5 times a week). I’m planning on sporting this dress to a friends Christmas gathering or a NYE brunch or both. I’m so excited to have a bunch of holiday posts scheduled this week leading up to Christmas and a few covering last minute sales/gift ideas. Thank y’all for reading and I hope everyone has a lovely day. xo, Azanique <3
