I love the casual layering look of a collared button up under a sweater! Combining two of my favorite winter staples to make a clean put together look is such an easy go to outfit! I was even warm enough to not have to wear a coat! On a side note – I never want to put this amazing tote down. So, if you see me with it way to much, don’t judge!

John and I went out to pick up some new rugs for the front and back doors of the house (big time adults here)! Of course, we went to Target. Porter has to look at toys every time we go! He always asks, “Look at toys?” He has to go up and down every isle and usually doesn’t say a word until he finds one he wants and yells out, “OK Momma!!” He’s so funny! I’ve been taking him to open gym at a gymnastics place in Eugene and he loves it! He doesn’t really ever get to play or interact with kids his age so I’ve really been trying to take him to do things where he can be around other kids. I think it’s good for the both of us, because if I had it my way he would only hang out with me. 🙂

Hope everyone’s week gets off to a great start!

This month has just flown by! I can’t believe Christmas is 9 days away! I wish it was longer, I have so many Christmas movies I still want to watch! I know I’m going to mourn the end of the holidays for a whole week when it’s over. The hubby and I watched Home Alone 2 tonight, I’ve seen it so many times yet it never gets old! I’ve never gotten sick of re-watching movies I love! When I was a kid my siblings and I watched our favorite movies over and over and over again. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve seen Dumb and Dumber.

I’ve really been pushing the Christmas music on Porter this year. I try and make it seem really cool and fun in my most excited voice like, “Don’t you want to listen to Christmas music?!!!?” It’s definitely working.

 

Adding a sequin piece to an outfit is the easiest way to create a chic yet festive look.

 

A sequin skirt like this is perfect if you want to keep the sparkle subtle instead of going all out. It would be great for any Christmas parties and even for a New Years Eve party! You can amp up the fancy by changing the top, shoes, or bag too! Opting for a light flirty top will transform this outfit into party mode!

 

What is your favorite item to wear for the holidays?

I have been sick for a little over a week now and it sucks! No one around me has been sick, it snuck right up on me. I haven’t been to CrossFit all week, I feel like I’ve missed out on so much. You know when you missed a day of school and something crazy happened?? Like, a fight broke out or Beyonce showed up. Even though I know nothing like that has happened, that’s how I feel!

Is everyone ready for Christmas?! I pretty much have everyone done except some stocking stuffer items and some wrapping! I think the tree I picked out this year is my favorite by far! It’s the perfect height, fullness, and smells amazing! We’ve had the same ornaments for the last 3 years and I love them, we’ve slowly collected new ornaments since having Porter. I just love the silver/white/neutral tones! Maybe next year I’ll feel like venturing out… Maybe.

If you are looking for a gift for someone who is hard to shop for then Happy Socks are the best!!! Who doesn’t love socks?! They have an amazing selection and there is something for everyone! I got some athletic ones that are great if you have someone who likes to workout in cool socks (my brother) and some fun polka dot and striped ones that are perfect for gift exchanges or stocking stuffers! Their website has more than just socks too! Notebooks, watches, underwear, phone cases, etc. So make sure to check them out! Until December 31st if you use code ‘LOOKSLIKEREIN’ at checkout you’ll get 15% off and free shipping!

P.S. Do you see how my husband wraps presents? hahahah 😉

I love pom pom beanies!

They are a cute addition to a casual winter look when you really do need to keep your ears warm! I love mine and I get so much use out of them in this PNW weather! Two other things I am wearing that would be great stocking stuffers (or gifts); plaid scarves and boot socks! I’m obsessed with anything plaid and this scarf is so warm and goes with so much! Cooler weather calls for lots of layers, and layering your boots is the best! It adds such a cute touch to a casual outfit!

 We had our CrossFit Christmas party on Saturday, so much fun! Half of the members dressed up in 80’s workout gear, there were some hilarious get ups! I wore this outfit last week to take my brother to Portland for an eye appointment. My brother is a type 1 diabetic, (diagnosed at age 5). A couple of years ago he started to go blind so he has to go in every 6 weeks to have an injections in his eyes. He is so brave and never complains! He has such a positive outlook on a scary situation, I admire him so much!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
