postpartum holiday outfit
It might be the most wonderful time of the year, but it's definitely the busiest! It seems every weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas is booked solid - we've got gingerbread house decorating, casual get-togethers at friends' houses, school holiday concerts and a bunch more that I'm forgetting. With all that to keep straight, I don't have time to think...
  When I get to leave the house to go out for a drink, that in and of itself is cause for celebration.  I may not have any fancy parties to go to, but during the holidays I look forward to celebrating all the little things . . .  and celebrating calls for fancy. BUT.  I still want be comfortable.  Sequin...
The. Holidays. Are. Upon. Us. Everyone take a deep breath. Whew. But thank goodness they are. I think we all need a little extra cheer right now. I adore the holidays and yes, am one of those who might start playing Christmas music a bit before Thanksgiving. Get mad if you must. Christmas music is the best. But, this year, we at...

  My Christmas season looks a lot like... Cocoa and cuddling on the couch with the hubs (the cocoa may or may not be spiked. idk). Making cookies with the kids (or watching as they eat and simultaneously drop all of ingredients on the kitchen floor). Grabbing a drink with the bestie, laughing until we realize we need to stop drinking, talking about how...
My holiday philosophy is this: dress casually, then BLING. Faux fur? Yes. Glitter? Of course. Lipstick and jewelry and Shiny Baubles Masquerading As Purses? Bling a ring a ding dong...
Happy holidays! We're a little early here, but with Thanksgiving right around the corner...we're going with close enough. So let's kick things off with a week of Go-To Holiday Style. It's easy to get caught up in style possibilities around the holidays — the pretty dresses, the gorgeous shoes, the shimmery little tanks — holiday dressing is often part fantasy. All...

I have these cotton tunic tops that I ordered in a few different colors and I love them. I wear them A LOT. It's great having something at this point in my pregnancy that's comfortable and easy to throw on with jeans. Especially if it's black and slimming (as slimming as a piece of clothing can be at 9...
  I love NYE.  No matter what how or where we're celebrating, when it comes to NYE, I want big.  At home, "big" means sparkly decorations, dance music, and pretty straws.  If going out, "big" usually means a fun restaurant with friends.  In either case, my heart wants to wear a pretty, pretty party dress.  So each December I find myself...
Hello again from the Pacific Northwest! So, you have probably heard about the general raininess out here. I honestly typically don't mind it, but right now...it's REALLY rainy. Our basement flooded while we were gone last week. I was shopping in SoHo as a very special treat trip to NYC one day and the next day I was vacuuming...
I found the coziest skirt.  It's soft, comfy, and currently on sale at Joe Fresh (in varying lengths).  Personally, I'm digging the midi length.  When paired with a fitted cashmere sweater and faux-fur stole, there's a decidedly 1940's vibe that feels so glamourous, dahling. Of course I paired mine with chunky ankle boots and socks (because that's how I do), but...

I'm 33 weeks pregnant today. I can't do life after 12pm. Seriously, at noon...I shut down (physically, emotionally, spiritually). I don't remember feeling this exhausted last time, but...anyways. On that note... I came up with a pretty solid formula for taking a basic momiform from every day to allthingsmerryandbright.  I don't have the energy or patience right now to think hard on a...
