I am loving the monochrome look at the moment! I really love it in neutral whites & even pinks! It’s a super easy way to feel really chic. Even though the outfit is super comfortable, pretty much everyone already has it in their wardrobe! It’s so simple to put together too.

I’m super excited because our friends Sam & Keith are coming to stay with us this weekend! Keith and Kevin went to college together & Sam, Keith’s girlfriend, and I have become really good friends over the past year and a half. She blogs over at Samwise and is one of the most honest, kind, and encouraging people I have ever met. We are going to the Bulls game tonight & I’m hosting a Stella & Dot Trunk Show at my house on Saturday! I’m excited to buy some new jewelry. Have you shopped Stella & Dot before? All their stuff is gorgeous! I seriously want every single piece.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! 🙂

When in doubt wear all black…

Wearing all black is an easy and chic look. This one happens to be super comfortable because I’m wearing the most amazing leggings. I have talked about them before but I swear they’re the best. They have a wider waistband to really suck you in and make you look smooth in all the right places and don’t slip down. A+ in my book. And ok it’s official, I’m obsessed with these boots. The heel really isn’t as high as I originally thought and it’s a chunkier heel which makes them more wearable. I also really like the almond shaped toe, a little bit dressy but not as dressy as a pointy toe. I have been wearing them non stop since I got them. Still a really great deal for an OTK boot AND they’re actually really comfortable. Love! The bag is a staple piece I wear all the time when I don’t use my diaper bag. Everyone needs a good black crossbody bag and this one comes in some other fun colors as well if you already have black.

Can you guys believe Christmas is in a week?! Ahh did you get all your shopping done or are you a last minute snag the very last sale kinda person? I have one more person to buy for then I’m done. I have started to organize all the gifts in our basement but just need to get on wrapping them! I’m hosting a Christmas brunch for some of my old co-workers on Monday so I’ll have some tasty recipes for you next week!

Happy almost Friday! 🙂

My first outfit post! Can you tell I struggled with the timer on my camera? Haha! It’s so hard to get it to focus correctly when you jump in after! The flash kept going off too. I have to get someone to take my next photos. Anyway this look is super casual yet cute. This faux leather jacket is my obsession. It instantly makes any outfit chic! I’m also loving this hat I just found at Target! It goes along with the plaid trend which is huge right now. I have a slight baseball hat addiction, I have so many. Most of them are summery colors and prints so it’s nice to find one that can be worn with darker colors in the colder months as well. Speaking of cold, it is freezing out today. In the last photo you can see the frost on our grass. The poor trees are bare too. Wahhh I’m not ready for cold! But am SO ready for Thanksgiving and then Christmas! Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
