Anyone else surprised by how much they love florals?  Up until the last year or so I was never a huge fan of florals.  Once though I found ones I liked there was no turning back.  I have florals for summer, spring, and fall.  When I saw this dress from Outer Grace Boutique I fell in love with the winter colors that this dress offered.  The print is gorgeous and not over powering.  My favorite part about this dress is the pockets!  Any dress or skirt that has pockets I have a hard time resisting.

As with most dresses that I wear I added a long cardigan.  This one is from Outer Grace too.  They have the best selection of cardigans of all lengths, colors, and patterns.  This one is a high low style that is a gorgeous burgundy color.  I love these cardigans so much I have one in mustard yellow and red also.  You can see how I styled them on Instagram!

 

 

For work I tend to gravitative towards dresses and leggings.  They are so comfortable and still look great.  I find dresses even more comfortable than jeans.  I know some people absolutely love jeans and would rather wear them than anything else.  Ever since we have been able to only wear jeans with spirit wear at work I find myself only wearing jeans on the weekends.  A lot of times on Fridays I find myself dressing up instead of dressing down.  Does anyone else feel this way?

 

Christmas Bucket List and Simple Holiday Style

This past fall, I was at a friend’s house for a get together.  I noticed she had made a fall bucket list with her boys, and there were so many fun things listed.  I loved the idea of listing out what we wanted to do so we didn’t forget them!  Yesterday, I sat down with the boys and asked them what they wanted to make sure to do during the Christmas Season.  Here is their list:

  1.  Make Christmas Cookies
  2. Build a Snowman
  3. Go see the Christmas Lights at the Zoo
  4. Have a sleepover
  5. Go see a movie
  6. Christmas Shopping for the other brother

Our list is nothing special, but I want to make sure that the boys get to do all of these things.  Today, we made Christmas cookies so we can now mark this one-off of our list.  What is on your Christmas Bucket list?

 

 

 

I’ve been on a huge holiday kick lately when it comes to my outfits.  I think I am drawn more this year than any other year to red and green.  I have been trying to find new ways to bring these colors into my daily looks.  I got this grided coat from Shein and I couldn’t wait to style it.

 

The quality of this coat is really nice.  I really like the weight of the fabric.  It is perfect for layering and worn all day long on a cold winter day.  It would also work well as coat in the cooler spring and fall months.  This coat fits tts, for reference I got a medium.

 

 

I wanted to go for a monochromatic pattern mixing since it is such an easy way to mix prints. I decided to go with a pop of color with my pants for a bolder look.  I also liked that the red brought in a holiday vibe that wasn’t over the top.  To finish off this look I decided to add gold accessories and a belt.  I love how the belt helps define my waist and gives it some structure.

The little black dress is a staple in every women’s closet.  I love ones that can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion.  When I found this dress from Outer Grace Boutique I knew that I had to add it to my closet.  What drew me to this dress was the sleeves and overall fit.

After seeing my sweet friend last week in her little back dress with cognac accessories I wanted to do the same!  There is something about black and cognac that is so classic.  I love how timeless that the combination can be.  To make this dress work appropriate I decided to add a pair of ankle booties and bow belt.  To finish off this look I decided to add my leopard scarf and some bangle bracelets.

 

For an evening out or for a Christmas party I would keep this look simple by adding a pair of heels.  For a black dress I love to pair black, red, or leopard heels.  The red and leopard are a perfect pop if that is what you are going for.  To finish off this dress I would add a statement necklace.  For a night out simpler is usually better!  How do you like to style your little black dresses?

 

 

Sweater Weather

I LOVE sweaters!  The more oversized it is the better!  There is nothing better on a cold day than putting on a cozy sweater!  I am drawn to sweaters with fun details especially ones that can me worn in multiple ways!  I have been crushing on sweaters with lace-up and bow details for a little bit of decoration to spice up a normally simple look.

This sweater I picked up in Oregon last summer, and I have been waiting for our temps to cool so I could pull it out!  I decided to pair it with my camo pants for a more neutral look.  To change-up this look and to add a little bit of diversity I added one of my blanket scarves.  If you love blanket scarves, but can stand the bulk, check out my blog post from last fall here.

 

 

Since this sweater is no longer available, I rounded up some other fun sweaters!  Which one is your favorite?

 

How to Transition into Spring

In typical Indiana fashion you don’t know what the weather will be like from day-to-day.  The temperature will vary anywhere between warm 60 degree temps to cold  30 degrees.  If you are anything like me you are wanting to begin switching your closet over and begin dressing in all of your spring clothing!  Here are a few ways that I dress for spring when the weather won’t cooperate for dresses and sandals.

 

Tip # 1 Wear lighter colors

I love lighter colors for spring.  Neutrals are definitely my go to color when I am ready for spring.  This sweater from Shein is perfect to transition into spring.  It has fun zipper details that adds interest.  I like to keep my clothing lighter so I can add fun pieces to brighten up my look.

 

Tip # 2 Add Bright Accessories

I love to help brighten up my looks for spring with accessories.  Purses can be the perfect pop of color.  The Carson Saddle Bag from Vera Bradley is gorgeous and perfect for every day use.  The turquoise color goes with just about anything!

 

How do you dress for spring when the temps are not quite ready to change?
