Dress it up with Faux Fur

Outfit Details:  Faux Fur Vest (Size M)  // Faux leather Leggings (Size M)  //  
Black Tunic (Size S - Similar in a blouse here)  

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!!!  I love the holidays!  For me it marks a time of family, reconnecting, great food and wine!  I'm a big believer that the dining table is where great conversations and memories are made.

I decided this year to get a head start on our Christmas cards and the best time to do this was Thanksgiving morning when our boys were already dressed up, have no school, and we are both off from work.  I figured if we were all going to dress up anyway then we might as well take advantage, right?!  Did you notice in one of my photos I almost lost my balance and twisted my ankle?  Note to self, do not wear stilettos on a trail in the woods...Ha!  I'm going to admit that I walked onto the trail in combat boots.

I love faux fur!  Every time I pass faux fur in the store I just want to touch it.  This gray faux fur vest from Target was such a great find!   The price is so reasonable and it can definitely pass for something more expensive.  This faux fur vest from Target is also really cute and currently 40% off!  I bought mine in a Medium because I don't like it to be too snug on my shoulders.  It fit perfectly.  My Spanx faux leather leggings are my new favorite and so comfortable! Budget friendly faux leather leggings can be found here and here.   I purchased mine in Medium because they definitely suck you in and I like to be able to breath.

Here are some other faux vests I'm loving:
Don't be faux, just wear some!

Hi there!  I've been sooo busy lately!  I feel like I have been saying that a lot lately.  I find it hard to keep up with my blogging but I keep telling my husband how great it makes me feel to do something creative outside of my regular job.  Kudos to the bloggers that are able to keep it going!  I'm totally impressed!

We haven't been doing as much on the weekends as the weather starts to get cold.  During the cold weather season we tend to hibernate more on the weekends at home with the exception of going grocery shopping (food is important, right?!) and church (most Sundays ;).  I'm all in when there is a blanket, couch, good book and a cup of tea calling my name!

I wore this all black outfit last weekend when we went out to church and to run our errands.  It was really very comfortable and dressed up enough for both church and running around.  I may or may not have changed out to my sneakers after church...ha!

I love winter hats and this grey cable knit beanie from Uniglo was a quick grab while I was Christmas shopping.  Yes, I started Christmas shopping already but I guarantee you I will still be shopping on Christmas Eve.  I'm kind of obsessed with winter hats.  They are really fun and not to mention keep your head/ears warm.

Here are some of my favorite winter hats:

Stay Cozy!!

Navy Lace Dress

Outfit Details:  Dress (Similar here and here) // Shoes // Bag

Last weekend we went to a beautiful and fun fall wedding!  I actually wore this outfit to a previous wedding a few weeks ago but I didn't get a chance to photograph it because hubby was in the wedding and it was dark & pouring rain. So I was more than happy to get a chance to wear it again because I LOVE this dress sooooo much!

I honestly purchased this on the sale rack for a deep discount. I have a really hard time paying full price for items because they always seem to go on sale after I purchase them and then I'm totally kicking myself!  Do you ever do that?

I love this dress because it is lace (I'm a lace junky) and it's a two piece!  Although the top was probably meant to be a crop, the skirt was high waisted and I'm short (5'1") so it was conservative enough for me to pull off.  I've worn 2 piece dresses before and I tend to find them really comfortable.  I opted for the leopard print heels to give the outfit a little flare.  I find leopard print to be pretty versatile and almost like a neutral.

I did my hair myslef...yay!  I thought it turned out pretty good by just curling with my wand, placing it in a loose ponytail then tucking it under and pinning it so it looked like a short bob.  A few people asked if I got my hair cut...what do you think I told them ;)?

Here are some Fall wedding guest dresses I am loving:

Have fun dancing the night away!!
