My Winter Survival Outfit

Happy New Year! Wow, that came fast! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and I wish you all the joy in the world this coming year. I love the motivation and excitement that surrounds this time.  I wish I could find a way to bottle it up and have it all year long!  Instead, I usually get back into the routine of things and realize it is still winter, but there aren’t any thrilling plans to help me forget how cold it is haha.  So, today I thought I would share my winter survival outfit!  choker-3-1-of-1

We have way more snow than usual right now, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.  In fact, I was just told we may wake up to 8-10 more inches! I like to be warm, dry, and cozy so traipsing around in feet of snow isn’t really my thing.  I put together this outfit to at least take warm and cozy around with me!  This top is one of my new favorites because the built in choker makes it unique, and the long sleeves, length, and fit make it so comfy.  Plus, it is only $13 so you can’t beat that!choker-1-1-of-1

I paired it with my Blanqi leggings because I wear them almost every day and I can’t convince myself to stop haha.  They are the best leggings I have ever owned!  My striped bag is from Seaport Stitches.  I don’t leave home without it! Mainly because it carries all my snacks 🙂 and it looks good doing it.choker-2-1-of-1

I threw on some boots to keep the snow out and of course a big chunky sweater.  They help to break up my head to toe black spandex thing I usually rock around the house, and instead make me look more acceptable in public.  Or so I like to think!My winter survival outfit! Loving this black shirt with the choker neck detail, comfy gray sweater, and the best leggings! Maternity style, mom style, casual comfy style!

Hope you are enjoying the winter, and if not, hope you can put together a winter survival outfit to help you make it through!  Thank you for a great year and all the support XO

All you Need is a Light Jacket

Christmas always comes and goes so quickly! It is a bit of a whirlwind.  This year it was a chill whirlwind haha if there is such a thing.  We just enjoyed each other’s company and played games.  It was lovely!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday as well!

We were blessed with a fairly warm fall this year compared to past years.  This winter has had some beautiful days as well, even though right now it’s a bit on the snowy side.  If you happen to live somewhere where all you need is a light jacket, I envy you a bit!  This jacket still works for us snow people too, though.  It’s light enough to still be able to wear a coat over outside, and classy enough to hit a nice dinner for date night!

I chose to pair it with a simple black dress, but I have also worn it with some skinnies and boots.  It is so versatile and the little step detail in the front adds some structure and interest to any look.

This jacket also works with a growing belly 🙂

All you need is a light jacket! Loving this long warm tan, slightly peach colored coat! Fall and winter fashion!

As always, I’d love to see your styles, so tag me on Instagram and show me! Hope you have a lovely week eating those leftovers and recovering from the excitement 🙂 XO

A Top for Twirls

Red top, flowing tunic top with tie, lovely feminine style.

If you haven’t noticed already, I’m bringing a lot more red into my wardrobe this holiday season.  It’s such a festive color and I match my poinsettias hahared4-1-of-1

This top is not maternity, but I love how flowy it is.  It is great for any body type! The best part is definitely the sleeves.  I love how they flare! My daughter likes to borrow it and practice her twirls 🙂Red twirl top! Women's fashion and style, flowing red shirt with tie. Bar necklace, loose curls!

This top is not only comfy and cute, but it also comes in black and it’s on major sale! The back has a cute tie that adds a nice feminine touch.

We finally got our first real snow today so we are inside with the fire on and sipping hot cocoa.  I secretly hoped it would stay fall all the way through winter, but the forecast seems to have different ideas!  Maybe I’ll give in and make a snowman of the days haha XO
