Holiday Casual


LEGGINGS: Spanx | SWEATER: H&M (similar) | BEANIE: Express | SCARF: Walmart | BOOTIES: Nordstrom | HANDBAG: Louis Vuitton (similar and here)

Eek!  Can you believe it’s the first week of December and only 22 more days until Christmas?!  Holiday season is in full swing and this month is filled with social events (my favorite time of year).  What I love most about the holidays is getting together with friends and family and being able to get dressed up a little more festive.  Red is my favorite color to wear right after Thanksgiving and all through Christmas.

We started the month off with some Christmas shopping Saturday night and I had brunch yesterday with a couple of my gal pals at Meson Sabika in Naperville.  I had been wanting to go there for quite some time and didn’t even know they served brunch until my girlfriend made the resos.  It’s really cute and charming on the inside and they have it decorated for the holidays so if you’re in or near the western suburbs of Chicago and looking for a tasty brunch spot this holiday season, make sure to visit Meson Sabika.  The cost per adult is $34.95 which includes one mimosa and $16.95 for children (7-12 years old).  They’re also known for their tapas style dinner menu and it’s a popular venue for weddings and other special events.

What do you look forward to most this time of year?

Must-Have Winter Coats


COAT: H&M (similar) | BOOTS: Windsor (similar) | BELT: Express | SWEATER: H&M (similar) | DENIM: Nordstrom Rack (similar) | BEANIE: H&M (similar)

Happy Cyber Week!! There have been so many deals this past week and it doesn’t look like the sales are coming to an end just yet.  One of my favorite things to purchase during Cyber Week is outwear!  I just love adding new coats and jackets to my collection and the best time to buy them is during Black Friday and Cyber Week or just after Christmas because they’re marked down quite a bit.

You can shop some of my favorite winter coats below including several similar faux leopard print options like the one I’m wearing above.

The Cozy Gift Guide

Can you believe we’re just a few days away from Thanksgiving?!  Neither can I.  Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday, but it’s starting to feel like it’s almost forgotten with all the Christmas hype already.  We usually wait to put our tree up until the day after Thanksgiving, but I’ve been in the festive mood since last week so we went ahead and put our tree up yesterday.  Last year we purchased a brand new Christmas tree so we were definitely looking forward to putting it up sooner than later.  We still have to get a garland for our fireplace mantle along with a couple more items, but overall we keep it pretty simple with our holiday decor.  How about you? Have you put your tree up yet or are you going to wait until this weekend?

Since I’m in the holiday spirit already, I’m sharing my first gift guide of the season with you and what better gift guide than a cozy one perfect for those days when you just want to lounge around at home in front of the fireplace.

Happy shopping!

Classic in Camel


COAT: Old Navy | TURTLENECK: Chadwicks of Boston [Similar]| DENIM: Old [Similar] | BOOTIES: Nine West [Similar and Here] | SCARF: Burberry [Similar under $20] | HANDBAG: Louis Vuitton [similar and here] | LIPSTICK: MAC (Faux)

Isn’t it just Unbe-LEAF-able that I snagged this modern classic peacoat for $33 from Old Navy?! I’m a sucker for coats and jackets and I always add several new outwear pieces to my coat collection each year.  Although I do already have a camel coat in a longer length, I just couldn’t resist this cute shorter style for the price to wear with jeans and leggings.

A camel coat is classic and timeless and most definitely a closet staple.  Camel is a neutral color and seriously goes with almost anything and it’s a nice alternative to black or gray.  You can shop some of my favorite styles in short and long lengths from $33+.

Thanks for stopping by! xo
