Winter Whites & Cozy Flannels


It's Friday peeps!! Whooo hoo! Extra excited because hubby is off today and we're having a wrapping party at our house. Hot cocoa, more Christmas movies and lots and lots of presents going under the tree! Does anyone else enjoy wrapping the gifts more than picking them out? It can be hard to find just the right present for everyone but once you do and then get to make them all pretty with bows and ribbons, that's definitely my favorite part! Dustin was sweet enough to let me open one of my gifts early, knowing that I would want to wear them with all my holiday/winter looks. These Sorel Conquest Wedge Booties are not only the cutest little things but they're super comfortable and guaranteed to keep your toes nice and toasty. Highly recommend if you're looking for a stylish yet waterproof winter boot.

Since these boots kind of have that whole cozy cabin, lumberjill vibe my first thought was to pair them with a cute flannel. When I spotted this plaid at Southern Roots TX I knew I had to have it. Blue is one of my favorite colors to wear and y'all this material is just so ridiculously soft!! It's roomy enough too that you could layer a thermal underneath. I decided to keep the look simple with just a chunky scarf and my favorite skinny jeans. Comfy and basic but oh so adorable!! ;)

This top is sure to sell out fast, so whether you love it for yourself or think it would make a great gift, hurry and snag it while you can! Remember holiday shipping cut off is the 17th. Hope y'all have a fun weekend!

Cozy Christmas Wear

Hey y'all! We are just two weeks away from Christmas can you believe it? All my shopping is done, just need my wrapping paper to arrive. I placed a custom order from Etsy for the cutest bags, gift tags, ect but now I'm over here not so patiently waiting their arrival. Does anyone else have to have a theme for their wrap? For me everything must coordinate not just with each other but my tree too haha! Call me crazy but I do it every year. For those who asked on Instagram, the paper pictured here is from Target last season. I did see that it's still available online here

One of the things I enjoy most about Christmas time is sitting by the fire, drinking hot cocoa in my cozy holiday pjs. Every year I get so excited to pick out a new pair and this year I found so many cute options I couldn't just limit it to one. I do highly suggest the fairisle romper though! It's one of the softest things I've ever put on and these Ugg knee high socks should be on everyone's list! They're SO warm! I prefer sleep shirts and shorts when I go to bed, so these are perfect for keeping your legs toasty without having to wear sweats. I've linked to everything I purchased for myself, gifts for others, as well as few more on my wishlist. Hope this aids in your search of the cutest festive comfy wear!   

Check out more of my favorite pieces below to help you create the perfect cozy Christmas morning. These would make great gifts too! I hope y'all have a wonderful Monday!

Holiday Party Wear Ideas

Happy Friday babes!! The holidays are quickly approaching so now is the time to snag all those little party dresses before they sell out! I've rounded up some of my favorites as well as all the accessories you'll need to finish off your look below. I instantly fell for this particular velvet wrap dress when I came across it. This color might not come to mind when you think of holiday style but let me give you a few reasons why it should definitely be a contender in your search for the perfect party dress. First of all it's flattering silhouette! The ruching accentuates those curves in all the right ways, not to mention it has the cutest on trend statement sleeves too. Velvet has been huge this season but this is the first I've seen it in this gorgeous grey violet hue. Guaranteeing you'll stand out in the sea of black sequins on NYE. Just add a fun heel like these feather sandals (comes in three colors and under $100) and some statement earrings (hubby bought these for my bday and I'm completely obsessed! They're are even more beautiful in person) and you've got one stunning holiday outfit. 

If you prefer the more traditional route, I've linked some fabulous LBD and a red number that is to die for!! Most of all these pieces are on sale too! Just be sure to check the sites main page for promo codes if discount is taken directly at checkout. Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! We've had a cold front move in and there is even a possibility of snow tomorrow!! Excited to cozy up by the fire and watch Christmas movies all day with my love!

Marled Lace Up Sweater

Partnering with one of my favorites again, Southern Roots TX to bring you today's late autumn look. Whether you're experiencing snow or the start of fall foliage like us here on the coast, you're going to want to add this marled knit to your wardrobe. It's a cold weather must have! Simple enough to wear with just about everything but this sweater is anything but basic. Just look at that lace up detail, I mean really does it get any cuter?! Any girl on your Christmas list would be thrilled to receive this one too!

I paired mine with a pop of color, a few fun accessories and these thigh high boots I can't stop wearing lately. They're both slimming and elongating to the leg and look great with skirts, dresses and jeans. Not to mention they're a great dupe for the much higher priced Stuart Weitzman pair. They've been sold out for a while but I found them full stocked and on sale for you here. My scarf is also currently on sale for 40% off, making it around $23. Another great gift idea!!

Just shot some holiday party looks so stay tuned for that later this week! Hope y'all have a great Monday!

Home for the Holidays

Hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! After lots of turkey and Black Friday sales shopping, I've been getting into the Christmas spirit by decorating our home for the holidays. I'm not completely finished but I wanted to go ahead and share a peek at our living room space with you. 

The overall theme in our home is rustic, modern farmhouse so I wanted to keep with that motif while adding touches of winter coziness. Since farmhouse style is made up of mostly neutrals, I thought it would be the perfect time to try my hand at flocking. This is the first time I've ever flocked a real tree and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! It's really rather simple to do and the result is just gorgeous! The product I used (linked below) gives that "real" snow covered look and you're easily able to control the density and effect. I purchased the 5lb box which was plenty to do our 9ft tree and garlands with some left over.

To tie everything together I used natural elements throughout. Example, these birch wood branches and candle holders. I stumbled upon these while browsing Etsy. They're made from real white birch trees and are pretty affordable compared to most faux wood pieces you find. 

I'm excited because not only was I able to link almost everything pictured but practically every single item is on sale right now too! Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the piece you'd like to shop and you'll be directed to that product page. If there are any items not linked below that you're interested in, shoot me an email or let me know in the comments and I'll be happy to share where I found them! Also be sure to head back over bright and early tomorrow morning as I'll have a full list of the best Cyber Monday sales for you!

Thanksgiving Outfit #2 - Faux Fur & Leopard Booties

As promised sharing my second Thanksgiving outfit idea with you today. I wore this a couple weekends ago while celebrating my birthday in Williamsburg. Though it's made up of a lot of simple pieces, all together this look is effortlessly chic. 

Let's start with this gorgeous faux fur vest. Definitely on the higher price end but worth every penny. This is actually my second Topshop faux fur purchase and the quality can not be beat! I paired it with this tie sleeve sweater that is literally one of the softest things I've ever put on. It comes in eight fall hues and I want every single one! No joke it's really like wearing a fleece blanket! I love the adjustable tie detail on the sleeves and the high/low hem. It does run a little large (wearing my usual size small) so keep that in mind if you plan to purchase. Personally I prefer the oversized fit when it comes to fall knits. 

Alright last but definitely not least let's discuss these super cute booties. While leopard boots are all the rage right now, I've heard some mixed reviews from y'all so I'm giving you my honest opinion about them. I feel like they can be a little over the top or even tacky if you don't choose the right style. These Sam Edelman pair have a neutral almost white color base and a simple block heel, adding just a fun pop of pattern to the look without completely over taking it. I think it's also really important to think about the pieces you plan to pair with them. I suggest basics and more neutral tones. Following those guidelines you are sure to pull this trend off with ease. ;)

Also in case you missed it, me and nine of my blogger gals are giving away a $300 Nordstrom giftcard over on Instagram. Runs until tomorrow night and is super easy to enter. Just think if you win you could snag my look for yourself for FREE! Head to my account @whatcourtwore for all the details.
