Black on Black with Pops of White

Life can be so cyclical, can’t it? Every winter I go through this phase where I only wear neutrals… Mainly black, grey, and white. Sometimes even camel if I’m feeling adventurous! (I hope you can sense my sarcasm with that one… ) I don’t know why it is, but it happens every single year. I typically gravitate towards color and lots of navy, but it always turns a little darker in the winter months. Black on black on black tends to be the uniform. Rather than feeling bored with it, I’m learning to just embrace it. Nothing is more classic than black and white so I recently picked up these black and white Kate Spade bow loafers to freshen up my all-black ensembles. The rhinestone covered bows? How could I not? How very bows & sequins, you know? I actually got this pair, too, and I think both with transition nicely into the spring, too!

Layering for Winter Ski Trips & Beyond

Now that the holidays are over, we’ve got a few straight months of just… winter! January and February can typically be kind of depressing, but I’m trying to take the positive route and embrace winter while it’s here. I’m not a huge fan of snow when I’m in the city, but I can’t get enough if I’m in the right setting. If it’s going to be cold, it might as well be scenic and pretty, right? I mentioned it in this post, but I’m dying to get out to Colorado for some fresh air and fresh powder. I can’t get enough of little ski towns… They’re my favorite! We’re actually going up to Lake Geneva this weekend and I’m excited for that Winter Wonderland feel.

What I Wore on Christmas Eve: Camel Coat + Blush Pink Sweater

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend with your loved ones. My family spent Christmas Eve at my brother’s house and it was the first time most of us had been under the same roof for the holidays in quite a few years… Definitely a special year to remember!

My niece just turned four earlier this month and she’s at such a fun age right now. On the morning of Christmas Eve, she and my brother were over at my dad’s house and she helped me get ready for the day. She picked this blush pink sweater out of my suitcase and I even let her help do my makeup… It was a riot. (I posted a few videos on Snapchat!) When I asked her what she wanted for Christmas, she told me, “dress up clothes,” among many other things. Thankfully, I had already gotten her a pair of cute glittery shoes that will work for both playing dress-up and everyday outfits, too!

Get Outside!

Man, oh man. It’s been a week! How is it only Thursday?! Counting down until the weekend, that’s for sure. (I feel like I could say the same thing about 2016 in general, but I digress…) On Tuesday, it felt like Thursday, and yesterday it felt like Friday. Somehow still feels like Friday today and we’ve still got two more days to go. Godspeed, you guys! Are you already off from work for the holidays? I feel like a lot of people are heading out for the holidays today. Safe travels if you are! I’ll be working Friday morning and making my way home for a few days on Friday afternoon.
