Winter & Holiday Fashion

Thursday, November 15, 2018

We are prepping ourselves for the first winter storm of the season!  I can't believe it's already mid-November!  It feels as though I've been saying that every month, that I can't believe how quickly time is flying, but it's so true!

I'm known to be a creature of habit when it comes to many things, fashion included.  One of my known go-to looks for holiday parties is an all black outfit.  I find it to be dressier and flattering.  I can't lie, I typically grab black jeans vs dress pants, but this girl loves her denim!

Talbots denim has become an absolute favourite of mine.  I love how they have a bit of stretch, the high waist and that they fit your silhouette so well.  The absolute best has to be that they are available in petite sizes.  This is a huge deal if you're under 5'5!  They work perfectly with heels, flats and ankle boots!

I also love love love their jackets in petite sizes as I am not a fan of arm sleeves that are too long.  I love how this jacket has a removeable fur collar and a polka dot lining!

This holiday look is fantastic and can take you from day to night easily!  I'm wearing a plum (reversible!) belt to break up the black, but you could remove it for a dressier look for evening wear.  The black sweater has the sweetest embellishments along the neckline, which automatically gives it a dressier look and feel.  A darker lip and gorgeous pearl & rhinestone pumps finish off this holiday inspired look!

Have a lovely day, friends!

Our Holiday Cards

Monday, November 5, 2018

Hi everyone!

I hope you enjoyed the most wonderful weekend!  I can hardly believe that the holidays are nearly here.  As a huge lover of the Christmas season, I'm nearly ready to say "bring it" and start decorating the house!

One thing that I have checked off of my holiday to-do list is our Christmas cards!  This year I went with beautiful cards from Minted.  I love Minted for so many reasons, primarily because their products are designed by Independent Artists from all over the globe.  I decided to go with three options, one with a family photo and two non-photo cards.  They are even more beautiful in person than they are online!  Honestly!

There are a variety of ways that you can customize your cards, blank back, designs on the back, additional text, font options, etc.  However the detail that I probably love the most is the free (!!!!) printed envelopes!  Just load your recipients' addresses and the envelopes arrive printed!  Honestly, how's that for a time saver?!

Do you send out cards every year?  It's been a few years since we've sent out a card with a photo, so I'm super excited to have some once again this year!
