Hot pink in January? I mean I say why the heck not when this week we were in the 50's all week. Leo and I spent most of the week outside, such a nice departure from last years snowy winter. Plus with the terrible flu going around this year I much rather go play outside than take a chance playing at indoor places in town. I picked up this pink sweater in the fall and having been dying to wear it this winter. I know it is a little bold but hey I am never afraid of a little color.
Oh man we are in full winter season. I feel like I struggle every winter on how to layer property. My husband gets so mad at me cause I never wear a coat because I can't fit all my heavy sweaters and layers under a coat. Or I do put a sweater on with a coat it is just too darn hot I end up carrying my coat around the entire time. Basically I need a coat check everywhere I go. So mostly I never wear a jacket and instead I just tend to layer a lot in the winter. So here is how I layer in the winter without looking like I weigh 700 lbs.
Just like last week when I blogged about sprucing up your Christmas dress attire, this is the same idea! Time to talk about sprucing up your NYE attire. I'll be 32 in a month and I think I retired all the sequins in my closet years ago. But nothing like the New Year approaching do those sequins look oh so tempting. So this is my take on how to wear sequins in a more conservative way.
OMG this is such an adult dress. Adulting has it's downfalls but it also has it perks, like trading in the youthful dresses for some chic and classic looks. And there is nothing more classic than this dress. And if your like me it might be time to upgrade your little black dress selection. I hardly wear dresses so the ones I did have were more Vegas and less 30ish, if you know what I mean. None the less I found this little number for $100 at Nordstrom and I am digging the midi cut!
Let me introduce you to my "Magician Jacket" as my husband calls it. I picked this blazer up recently to wear during the holidays and I couldn't think of a more festive jacket. The minute I walked into Anthropologie and saw this this green jacket I was drawn to it. I kept going back to it over and over trying to justify buying it. I finally took it to the dressing room and once I put it on it was game over. This little baby was going home with me.
A few weeks ago we ventured out in our neighborhood to have my Mom snap some family pictures for our Christmas cards. So spoiler alert these are the outfits in our Christmas cards! When I was walking out the house Jay commented on my sweater sleeves and asked if the 70's were back? I responded that in fact they are when it comes to sleeves. The bigger the bell sleeve the better the sweater. This isn't the first dig my hubby has done on my fashion I showed him a green jacket I bought last week and he asked me if I was planning on becoming a magician. Clearly that jacket needs a blog post based on my husbands response!
Happy Friday! This week has went by so fast with Halloween, but also slow at the same time. My Husband has been working a weird swing shift so it has been just Leo and I for dinner and bedtime this entire week. I was getting quite bored so last night we decided it was time to go out for a mother son date. I did dress up a bit but this outfit did not make the cut for our date. However, this outfit did make the cut for our double date that we had last weekend.
So occasional via instagram, facebook, and email I get questions regarding my personal life. I am always happy to share little glimpse into my personal life but I hate boring people with the details. I feel like people come here to read about fashion, food, healthy living, and kid stuff. Not really to hear what I'm up to. But I still kept getting questions about my personal life so I thought I would share a few little tidbits with you.
This blog post I'm channeling my inner farmer. I showed up wearing this and my nephew said, "Aunt Jessa what are you wearing? You look funny." It is crazy how perceptive little kids are, he is only 4 and already knew that he didn't like this "style". Well despite kids not liking this outfit I was really digging these overalls. Plus they are so comfortable I totally forgot about the comfort level of them.
I have been seeing these sock booties all over and decided it was finally time to get a pair. Once again I didn't want to spend too much on them so I was able to find them at ASOS. They are sleek, cool, and surprisingly very comfortable. The only problem with them is I am not one that has trendy NYFW kind of style. So finding a "cool" outfit to wear with them was a bit of a stretch. I settled upon this faux skirt with an oversized sweater. I loved how it looked but my legs were quite cold so I can't wait to wear these sock booties with some leggings.
