Top: Topshop | Cardigan: Leith | Jeans: William Rast | Shoes: Free People | Bag: Dagne Dover | Sunnies: Karen Walker

Since Christmas shopping for everyone else is coming close to an end, and shopping for our own closet is nearly starting, I wanted to share my work outfit. I typically try to work in super comfortable, yet still casual clothes. This cardigan is pretty much the softest cardigan on the block and feels like a real life robe. I currently am wearing these William Rast jeans again as I am sitting on bed typing (aka working) because they are that comfortable. I also call this my work outfit because I am carrying my work bag in it. I have a 15 inch MacBook and I FINALLY have found a bag big enough to fit my laptop! I always have been huge on big bags and I was so excited that this Dagne Dover purse fits absolutely everything. I’m talking planners, notebooks, my dslr camera, make up bag, etc etc.

I hope you enjoyed my work wear outfit and thanks as ALWAYS for stopping by! Is it me or does it not feel like Christmas this year? We have SO much going on, that I can’t wait to share, that I feel like I have been distracted from Christmas. I know I shared this yesterday but I’m so scared that this busy season has taken away the Christmas magic! I know once our non stop Christmas festivities start today, I am sure I’ll be ok. First up is bar hopping in our onesies for our cousins twent- onsie party! Isn’t that so cute?!  See you back tomorrow for my Christmas outfit 🙂

Sweater: BP | Skirt: Soprano | Shoes: Sam Edelman |  Sunnies: Karen Walker | Purse: Tory Burch

Same as Thanksgiving, I know some of us have super fancy events to get all dressed up to and some of us have a laid back family that jeans and tee would be perfectly fine for. Lucky for me, my family covers both sides of the spectrum, so getting to dress up for the holidays is so much fun for me! I found this sweater that is unbelievably comfortable for under $40. I have worn this skirt a couple times and its around $25. Some simple colors, comfort, and accessory shoes makes this outfit complete! I am thinking about wearing it to my next event.

Speaking of events, I am late to my event this morning at Tootsies but what’s new? Fashionably late is a thing right?! I hope you all aren’t running around like crazy these next couple of days gearing up for Christmas. Remember to take some breathers, plan a date night, and remember the real reason for the season. Hubs has a Christmas date planned for us tonight and you bet I am so excited!

Sweater: Free People | Denim: Articles of Society | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Watch: Larsson and Jennings

Look 1 // Scarf: BP | Shoes: Jack Rodgers

Look 2 // Beanie: BP | Shoes: Sam Edelman (sale) | Bag: Tory Burch 

I’ve had my eye on this sweater for a couple of months now and I am so glad I finally pulled the trigger. If you plan on investing in one sweater this season, let this Free People sweater (comes in 5 colors) be the only one! I mean my goodness it’s so fluffy and comfortable that I have been wearing it non stop the past couple of days. I had to share how I styled it two different ways since this is probably how I got away with wearing this sweater twice this week. First up  just adding a big scarf (this one reminds me of a cute harry potter version scarf) gives that comfy cozy look and some brown booties.

Next I styled this sweater with a black beanie and these booties that I am OBSESSED with are on sale! You maybe seeing this shoes way more often around here since the studded look makes such a statement. I like to think of them as accessories but for your shoes. I also have my eye on these “accessory” shoes next. Beanies are the perfect addition to your outfit to make you look wintery yet you don’t have to do your hair. It’s a win win in my book.

I probably sound like a broken record every time I mention my go to is Nordstrom but you all don’t understand my love for them. Especially when searching for the perfect sweater this season. Quantity over quality really goes a long way in my book and Nordstrom selections really help with this!

Top: Topshop | Shorts: Topshop or skirt option | Shoes: Johnston & Murphy | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Purse: Toryburch

Since apparently the weather is forecasting in the 70s for Christmas, I came up with this holiday look! If you are lucky enough to experience winter, then I would just add black tights and a coat to keep you warm. I have been getting so many questions (which I love) about holiday outfits and how to dress festive. My answer to everyone has been red or velvet lol! A pop of red instantly reminds me of Christmas  and is such a good color to wear this time of year. These black lace shorts are so darn cute and also come in a skirt version here. I can’t wait for Christmas not only because of gift giving but to see everyones holiday looks!

Luckily Nordstrom is still promising free shipping to arrive by Christmas Eve – so if you left your Christmas outfit for the very last thing to do, be sure to order your outfits here!
