Prayers Needed

Hi sweet friends! Sorry to have been MIA so much lately. While I don't normally share very much on a personal level, I wanted to take the time to let you know why I have been & will continue to be gone. My dad has been in the hospital since the first week of January with Pancreatitus. While he had initially shown signs of recovery, many of his organs have now begun to shut down. He has been in ICU for a week now and is still in critical condition. Because my dad is so healthy, his condition has really perplexed the doctors that have been taking care of him. Please pray for my dad as the future is still very uncertain at this point. I hope y'all understand as to why I'll be taking some time off from the blogging world!

Hello Minted Glam readers! I'm Allison, half of the sister duo that blogs over at The Sisters in the City. We are so excited to be guest blogging for Katherine! Isn't she the best? I just really love her style. My outfit today is all about staying cozy when it is cold outside. I love layering chunky sweaters with plaid and some skinnies. It's a winter go to for me. I'm also a firm believer that everyone needs a cute pair of snowboots. Thanks for reading and come check us out here for more outfit posts and ideas! Here are a few pictures from some of our recent posts:
We hope you have an awesome day, and thanks again Katherine for asking us to guest post for Minted Glam!

Guest Blogger: For all Things Lovely

Good morning loves! I'm Megan from For all Things Lovely and I'm so excited that Katherine asked me to guest post today while she's in NYC! {I'm super jealous, by the way!} Don't you guys just love Minted Glam? Katherine and I have been friends for a few years now and I adore her style. We used to work together, so I got to see first hand just how fashionable the girl is every. single. day! I just love her :)
Pants: Asos | Blazer: H&M {similar} | Top: Asos {obsessed with this top!} | Cuff: Tory Burch | Watch: Michael Kors | Earrings: Nadri | Bracelet: J. Crew | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Shoes: Badgley Mischka | Handbag: Kate Spade {the hubs picked this out all by himself for Christmas--he's good!}
 
I've gotten so much wear out of these adorable pants--I have them in every color and seriously cannot get enough of them! And, the best part is, they are on SALE!  If you follow my posts, you can see that I like to throw a blazer on top of anything and everything to complete a look.  Simple, but chic!
 
Feel free to check out other outfit details from my blog @ For All Things Lovely.  Thanks so much for asking me to guest post today, Katherine! 
 
Have a lovely day!

Coast to Coast: The Way We Wore

Welcome to the second installment of our coast to coast style collaboration! We are girls in four very different parts of the country trying out the same trend. Just because New Year's Eve has passed doesn't mean you can't spice up your wardrobe with some sparkle. Our looks range from casual to party and everything in between. Hopefully this will inspire you to incorporate that extra flash of glam into your wardrobe.

J.Crew sequin top / J.Crew blouse / J.Crew skirt / Target tights / Dolce Vita boots / F21 necklace / gifted Street Level clutch (cute option 1 & 2) / Ray Ban sunnies

Make sure to visit Ash 'n' Fashn, Minted Glam, Life Unsweetened and Lily Says Go for the complete looks.

Bundled Up

ASOS bow coat / J.Crew Pixie Pants / Zigi boots / LOFT ring / INPINK chain bracelet c/o

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! We took these pictures in Indianapolis while visiting my brother and his family. It snowed almost the entire time we were there, which was fun since we rarely get any snow in SC. However, I think I'll still take 50 degree weather over 20 degrees any day :) Happy weekend!
