So, there is a reason why everyone and their mother are talking about Lularoe! These clothes are insanely comfortable!

At first, I didn’t realize that there was more than just leggings. In case you don’t know, they have; dresses, tops, long cardigans, and skirts. I’m so impressed with the fit of this Amelia dress, I don’t know if I’ve ever worn something that is so flattering yet crazy comfortable. I want to get my legs in a pair of their leggings! My brother’s girlfriend has a pair and even he was like, “You have to feel these things!!” Lol. They were so soft. I don’t think I would ever want to take them off!

My friend Stacey who gifted me this dress has a little Lularoe boutique in the salon she works in and they are always doing giveaways and special flash sales so I’ll link the information below to their Facebook page! For reference I am wearing a size small in the Amelia dress and it retails for $65!

My mom and nephew left after New Year’s, we miss them so much!  The weather was so bad their train was delayed for four hours! Thankfully they made it home safely. We’ve had so much snow and freezing rain I feel like I haven’t left the house in weeks. The roads are all clear now so I can finally go grocery shopping! Woo-Hoo!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

How was everyone’s Christmas and New Years?! Ours was wonderful! My mom and nephew got here Christmas afternoon and got to visit for two weeks! It’s been so fun to have them here! John and I have had two date nights in one week! Any of you with children know that’s an amazingly rare occurrence!

I went to brunch with a couple of my blogger friends, which was the perfect time to wear my new 7 Charming Sisters jewelry! These ladies have created a series of seven different lines of jewelry, each designed for individual style and taste! I love the support these seven women have for each other! Being an advocate for women supporting women, I will always give my business to companies that lift one another up and work together!

As a caretaker of two autistic boys my favorite thing about this company is their commitment to help those with disabilities find jobs. Many of their employees have intellectual disabilities and are given the opportunity to work in their studio handcrafting the very jewelry sold on their site! This alone is enough for me to continue to support 7 Charming Sisters and all they stand for!

I chose the Bring the Fierce Necklace from Jennifer’s collection and The Diplomat Ring from Donalda’s collection! I love the choker like look to this necklace! Along with being a statement piece, the shape is what caught my eye! Oh my gosh, this ring!! I’m a sucker for anything turquoise, so naturally there was no competition once I saw this beauty!

Merry Christmas Eve!!! Is everyone ready for tomorrow?? I felt so unprepared this year! We got our Christmas shopping for Porter done early though and that’s really the most important, haha.

We have had some crazy cold weather this past week! Thankfully we were only out of power for a couple of hours, John and I handled it like post-apocalyptic pros, Porter… Not so much! He kept saying, “Alexa, (Amazon Echo) turn the lights on!!!!” I swear he thought we turned the power off on purpose! Literally everything was covered in ice! It made running errands difficult, but the whole town looked so gorgeous!

The lace up trend is definitely one of my favorite trends this year! I love this lace up sweater from Zaful! It is one size so I was a little worried about how it would look on me, but it’s perfect! I love the length and the lace up detail around the wrists. I’ve seen a lot of similar styles, but my sweater is only $32! Most places I found them they were $50!

Zaful has a ton of trendy styles at affordable prices, check out their website!  Here are some of their cute sweaters!  I would say if you need something in a hurry, go somewhere local, but if you are able to wait for shipment (they are out of the country) Zaful is definitely worth it!

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and wonderful memories with your loved ones!

Faux leather is a trend I’ll always love. I’ve been wanting a skirt for the fall/winter season to wear for a holiday look! Along with everything else, Shabby Apple has the best skirts! Every skirt I have from them is perfection and this Black Coal Skirt is no different!

Cold weather is the perfect time to layer different fabrics and textures! I love pairing a chic skirt with any type of sweater, chunky or light, (not intended to make them sound like types of canned tuna), this one is a cashmere blend, it’s so soft and the color is perfect for the holidays. I’ve also been seeing a ton of dressy looks paired with beanies and I love it!

It’s been so cold here! We’ve had a ton of freezing rain, but no actual snow! 🙁 If it’s going to be this cold and wet I want it to be worth it! Is everyone ready for Christmas?? I’m not at all! We’re all done with Porter, but I’m not done shopping for anyone else!

In honor of the holiday season Shabby Apple is giving away a $50 credit to one lucky winner! All you have to do is like the featured photo on Instagram and tag a friend in the comment section! Giveaway will be closed Friday, December 16th 6pm Pacific Time. Winner will be announced Saturday, December 17th.
