Hey friends! Wow this week flew by. I spent a lot of time this week relaxing with my little guy at home, Christmas shopping and trying to sneak a few workouts in before the hubby goes out of town again.
I am recapping the week, just in case you missed anything. It is all here in one spot for you to refer back to!
First off, I am still working on finding great gift ideas to add to my gift guides. I am new to the blogging world and this is my first go at gift guides! If there is a certain category you are looking for I would be happy to help. I found this great book thanks to a sweet friend. The best part, it is on sale for $12 right now on Amazon. (regular price $20). This book would make a great stocking stuffer, favorite things gift, gal pal gift or anyone really!
If you want to take a peek at all my gift guides they are up on the blog! Or click here.
We did some traveling last weekend! We took our two older boys to ride the Polar Express in Grapevine, TX. We stayed at the Gaylord Texan for a weekend filled with Christmas fun! If you are looking for a place for the kids, this was such a fun experience and the boys had a great time! So much to do and see.
This gray top has the cutest details and bell sleeves. I layered it with my black vest for the chiller evening. I also snagged these jeans from Rue Bird Market a few months ago. Isn’t the pearl detail the cutest!
We headed home on Sunday morning and I was so glad I packed this cozy tunic and leggings! Click the image for details or shop below.
Boys were off to school on Monday, and this mom was rocking the messy bun with one of her favorite cardigans. This chenille cardigan is oh so soft, and I love that it has pockets. The length is a little longer than usual, but I LOVE it. (I am 5’6 for reference). Shop the look by clicking the image or links below.
Santa for sure came early in our house! My sweet hubby brought home these Adidas sneakers that I have been eyeing for over a year now. They went on sale, and I had to snag them. (well Santa had to) 😉
Holiday outfit planning is one of my favorite things to do! If I could be a personal shopper I would. I love shopping and putting outfits together not just for myself but in hopes to help others make their shopping a little easier. This look was one I put together for a holiday party. You can shop this look by clicking the image or the links below.
Loft try on session started with this super soft yellow sweater! Click the image to check out all I tried on. (if this is an emailed version of my post, go to my website for the full clickable widget try on session in this post) Click here.
This tunic has been the best go to staple I’ve had in my closet. (comes in gray too) It is perfect for layering because it isn’t too thick and best part it goes great with leggings and covers your bottom! (hands raised high)
This was my look I put together for a Favorite Things Party my girlfriend hosted. Click here to read my post about the party. Plaid is always so easy to dress up for the holidays. You don’t always need a new outfit. Just grab those black jeans, red lipstick and a statement necklace and you are set! (These black “legging” denim jeans are softer than regular denim and perfect for a more dressy look.
If you didn’t hear……it snowed in Houston Thursday night! This was the first time my boys have gotten to see snow. We had the best morning! Wish it could have stayed around a little longer, but I’ll take it. 🙂
Snow day!! This sweater gives me all the cozy feels. It is one of those easy throw on winter sweaters for a day of errands or could be dressed up with a pair of black pants or even a pencil skirt. I am wearing a small for reference.
That raps up my week! We are hoping to get our Christmas lights put up, and I am sneaking out to get a workout in and run some errands ALONE! (Mommy break) 😉
