12 Days of Christmas - Holiday Outfit Number 3

| Jumpsuit - H & M | Necklace - Stella & Dot |

Black Jumpsuits | H&M | H&M | Zara | Zara |





For the Tall and Sleek Girl - Jumpsuits are so slimming and sleek.  Your legs look mile high and your waist looks teeny tiny.  Try pairing with a statement necklace, a red lip and a high pony. All black is the best option, naturally.  Side note - I am not tall nor sleek... but this jumpsuit makes me feel that way ;)

12 Days of Christmas - Holiday Outfit Number 1

| Bodysuit - Aritzia | Trousers - Aritzia | Shoes - Nine West |

Alternative Options | Zara Trouser | Zara Trouser | H&M Trouser |

Bodysuits | Aritzia | Aritzia | Aritzia





For the office party - adding a little sex appeal. I love the wide leg trouser with the full bodysuit, but the plunging sheer neckline totally spices it up!! The fit of this bodysuit is amazing.  Let's face it, not all mothers can go braless (myself included) - but the material and tightness of the bodysuit perfectly lifts and separates the ladies.

S T A T E M E N T Sleeve


 | Sweater - H&M | Denim - Frame | Pumps - Nine West | Sunglasses - Rayban


Statement Sweaters | Zara | Zara | Zara | Zara | Zara

( Clearly Zara is on point this year for a hint of statement fur )







If you’re a “fashion person” and you still get giddy when you open the mailbox to find your monthly magazine subscriptions — then I bet you will be as excited as I was to style statement sleeves!!  These furry sleeves are a cool-girl staple for a really good price! This was a steal from H&M - it’s a good idea to buy cheaper versions of such trendy pieces… if you’re like, you may love something super trendy one year and H A T E it the next!!  Plus, they make even the smallest things like hailing a cab or grabbing groceries from the top shelf feel like a major fashion moment.



S T Y L I N G  the sleeves – because the fur can be overbearing, keep the rest of the outfit streamlined and tame.  Style with a simple heel, bootie or loafer (neutral colors),  a simple denim, and very little, if none, accessories.  These standout sleeves will do all the talking for the entire outfit.

U N D E R Sixty

| Sweater - Zara | Jeans - Levi's | Mules - Steve Madden | Backpack - Matt N Nat | Sunglasses - Rayban |

Sweaters under $60 | Zara | Zara | Zara | H&M | H&M | H&M | ASOS | ASOS |




Sweater weather is in full swing. Are you stocked up? Well, if you haven't purchased all of your knits yet, here is your ultimate GO-TO knit.  This sweater though!! It's from Zara and cost less than $60.  The quality is gorgeous, the fit is perfection and the fabric is like wearing a blanket. 

 Each Fall season, I go in search of the perfect sweater.  Believe it or not, my sweater collection (not including cardigans) has been less than weak the last few years... like I can't even recall having one great sweater last year or the year before. But this year is the year of sweaters for me. I should probably order this in every color, smart right? Confession - I just ordered it in gray 5 minutes ago.  Okay, back to the sweater... it's fitted enough with a side tuck but still leaves room for layers, and has an ideal oversize turtleneck, making me want to wear it every single day.

SHEAR Delight

  

 
| Jacket - Guess  | Tee - Aritzia | Leggings - Aritzia

JACKETS | Mango | Topshop | H&M | Aritzia | Forever 21 |





There's no denying winter is upon us… It went from warm to EFFING FREEZING.  The winds are howling, the days are getting darker and the temperatures are starting to chill us to the bone. There is no greater excuse for us to all go shopping and buy a snuggly and stylish winter coat… shearling… think the IKEA MONKEY.  Ha, not really.  I am obsessed with the fabric and style.  Shearling is warm, cool and ALL the “It” girls are wearing it… whoever the F these IT girls are.  And don't forget, shearling isn't just for jackets — it also perfect for gloves, bags and boots.  Check out the links above for some fabulous and affordable options.

Expectation vs. Reality


 
Expectation – perfect outfits, matching Hunter boots, adorable family photos, beautiful fall weather.
 

Reality – Fynn jumped in a puddle within 30 seconds of being at the farm – sprayed mud on us all, it was f-ing freezing and I had a slight hangover from 2 glasses of wine the night before.   OH, and I was having an awful hair day! 

 



 | Sweater - Aritzia | Denim - Mother | Boots - Hunter





All in all, we had a lot of fun at the pumpkin patch.  The smiles are real and the laughs are a result of a few dirty jokes (hey, have to look authentic in the pictures).  My husband works away 75% of the year, so these special family moments are really cherished.  Fall is my favorite time of year, and our annual trip to the pumpkin patch is my absolute favorite, and now my son’s favorite.  I bribed my husband to dress a certain way and smile for the camera … kidding, he is a great sport.



Can I just add that this Aritzia sweater is the absolutely perfect piece for colder days? It was F R E E Z I NG during our pumpkin patch escapade and the thickly woven wool is so warm and perfect for the changing weather.  And hey, it looked pretty damn cute for the pics!!  

Life is too precious and short to miss these precious moments.  If I can give any advice it would be: 

1. Bring a photographer sometimes to capture the moment (use Natalie Dollman, she's super hilarious and fun to work with and never makes it feel cheesy or awkward). 

2. Our kids are dicks, they are going to jump in the puddles no matter what.

3. Bribe your husband (beer, sex, sports? whatever), he will wear just about anything... even men's Hunters.
