All Black

There is something special about an all-black monochromatic look.


It's sleek and simple but has a chic vibe.  This turtleneck tunic has been an easy go-to.  It has a high-lo hem (which I'm always a big fan of), long enough for leggings or skinnies, and it's perfect for layering.  It comes in 9 color options.  I will say, it is really tight going over the head but once on, it is so comfortable. I love how tight the arms are - it creates a flattering look.

What are your plans for tonight?
Over the past few years we have stayed home with the family.  As the kids have gotten older, it's been fun to play games.  One year we had a wii bowling tournament, we've played "minute-to-win-it" games, played board games, watched Ryan Seacrest, etc.  It's fun family time.  I usually make fondue and some appetizers and enjoy some wine.  Tonight we may gather with some family friends as well.

I wish you all a safe and fabulous evening with family/friends.
See you in 2016!

Fur and leather layering

Layering with fur and leather adds a chic touch to your winter outfit.  


I wore this outfit yesterday to grab lunch with the kiddos and run a few errands.  It was the perfect amount of layering.  As you readers know, I have 3 kids (the youngest being 3) so when I'm out and about with them, being comfortable, stylish, and still able to carry the little one around at times is important.  Even though I'm wearing 3 layers, the vest is light and easily able to layer.

Do you remember this post where I styled this same fur sweater vest? My exact fur sweater is from Loft last year.  I "re-found" it in my closet this Winter and it has become a favorite layering piece for me!  Over sweaters, as in the previous post, or layered under a jacket like today, it adds a fun textural detail and warmth.  Unfortunately, my exact sweater vest is no longer available but this sweater is VERY similar.

Blue Buffalo Plaid + Link Up

I am obsessed with blue buffalo plaid for winter.


I've always loved red buffalo plaid!  Remember this post?  Or Katey's post here? (love that dress!!) As soon as I saw this blue buffalo plaid puffer, I had to have it.  I think this bright blue color is perfect for the winter months.

New Years Eve Sequins

New Year's Eve sequins!


Do you have any New Year's Eve plans?  We always go to a neighbor's house to ring in the New Year.  There is lots of food, drinks and games.  It's always a fun time!  And we are back home and in bed by 12:15!  We can't hang like we used to :) Even though we aren't painting the town, I still like to dress for the occasion.  I think sequins and sparkles are a must for New Year's Eve attire.  And you'll never believe where I found this gem of a skirt!  Yep, Target.  It also comes in a gold sparkle and is only $25.  
Also, these heels are now part of Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale, for 30% off, making them only $69.













Sweater: LOFT (50% off with code HOLIDAY50) // Skirt: Target (also comes in gold) // Tights: Target // Heels: Halogen (30% off) // Necklace: J Crew Factory, similar here and here
