2017 Holiday Style

I've been getting fancier this holiday season — finally! After some years, especially last year when I was heavily pregnant and living in sweats. This year I've worn my heels, dresses or special dress pants worn more, but, the holiday season also means going out with the kids to all those great holiday activities. Our favorite is New York's Botanical Garden...
cute dresses for nye
If you follow me on Instagram (@shanachristine), you may remember that I posted this pic with a Shimmer & Shine joke....which made me realize I am definitely not the only mama who sees a shiny dress and ends up with "shimmer and shine! shimmer and shine!" stuck in her head for the next week. Genies divine, you guys. #pleasemakeitgoaway In any...
holiday outfit for travel
We're traveling this Christmas, which I LOVE. Not even joking. It adds to the magic and excitement for me...and I say that having three little kids. Even still! I get so pumped up about it. Maybe it's the flurry of preparation, the anticipation of arriving and the feeling of adventure. Whatever it is, I love it. Now. What I wear...
black dresses for women
You may have noticed a little trend on my Instagram lately (@elletrain) and that trend is black floral. It's actually an on-going trend in my world and I will forever love it. It's floral with an edge = my favorite. Option 1: Colder Temps I don't wear a ton of dresses, but when I find one I really like I want...

Cozy And Cute: Velvet Pajamas

There's no doubt that velvet is having a major moment right now, and one fun way to wear it is pajamas.  Velvet PJs are cozy, cute, and have a little something extra that feels especially on point during the festive holiday season. My hands-down favorite pair of velvet jams are from Madewell.  The top is cute enough to wear alone...
When a leggings-hater and a leggings-expert (ha!) are challenged to dress up faux-leather leggings for the holidays....this is what happens.   Perfect for when you don't want to trade cute for comfort (and of course turtlenecks are featured). First, Our Favorite Pair of Faux-Leather Leggings Scotti and I (independently) searched for our favorite pair of faux-leather leggings....and both arrived at the same...
Have you noticed what's happening with sneakers right now?  Sequins and glitter and glitz...suddenly, at every turn I'm seeing shiny, shimmering, sparkling SNEAKERS. And I couldn't be more thrilled!!  I mean....FANCY SNEAKERS.  Right?? I finally splurged on a pair (Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to me) of the infamous Golden Goose sneaks, and I've been wearing them everywhere.  Not only...

Dressing Up Plaid

plaid outfit ideas
I have a little obsession lately and it's plaid blouses. There's something classic about plaid at the holidays that the partial prep in me adores. I'm loving all the blouses out right now that have a little ruffle or a crisp collar that takes them far above your traditional plaid flannel shirts and takes them right into holiday parties...
Steve Madden kind of kills the statement bootie game. When we found a very similar pair on Amazon (for way less) we had to do a comparison. Which would you choose? Featured Pieces Steve Madden Sequin Boots NOTE:  The gold flips to black, but we just learned that the silver flips to a matte pink.  Better, but still a bit strange. Bamboo Sequin...
Oh hey hot pants.  As someone who can be found in black, navy or gray 99% of the time, it makes perfect sense that I bought these hot pink pants.  #nonsense I'm not even sure what it was.  I had featured these pants in my article about velvet-on-velvet last month and then they just....haunted me. Partly it was the photo...
