Skirts & Stripes

Mixing a sweet and classic look with comfort has been my outfit mantra this winter.  I love finding a feminine look and adding comfort pieces to make these cooler winter days more manageable.
I could live in leggings and boots so they appear pretty often on most of my go-to looks.  Paired with this light skirt and dark striped top, these pieces go seamlessly together.

Perfect Party Favors

A great little treat for your New Year’s party guests is a perfectly portioned drink!  A great use of mason jars, this a quick and easy party favor will be the best centerpiece on the bar.

To assemble you will need:
-          regular mouthed mason pint jars
-          bakers twine
-          paper straw or stir stick
-          soda in the 7.5 oz “mini cans”
-          an airplane bottle of whatever liquor would be a great mix with the soda
Wrap the twine around your mason jar and knot.  Then, tie the straw to the jar and tie the airplane bottle on top.  Add a bow and slip your soda into the jar! (super simple, right?)
Now all your guests need to do is grab their treat, pour in to the handy mason jar, stir and enjoy!

Simple Christmas Wishlist

It's that time of year again, the time to send a wish list to my parents before they cancel Christmas (as usual, mom is threatening to cancel if she has to guess what we all want). 
My mother loves specific lists with links and clothing sizes (and lets be honest, gifts you have been eyeing are much more exciting to see under the tree).  So I sat down this weekend to put a small little wish list together.
1. I am loving the red travel thermos and think it would make my morning commute a little more cheery
2. Love a big gold watch
3. again... fan of the big watches so another in white just makes sense, right?
4. I have been obsessing over these open sweaters and definitely see this as a comfy go-to piece
5. You can never have enough comfy pieces, right?
6. My make-up collection is in definite need of a overhaul, so a Sephora giftcard would be perfect!
7. My feet are always cold and I have finally worn through my latest pair, so slippers are a must!  The hard bottoms are perfect for popping outside with the dog for puppy bathroom breaks.
What are you hoping to find under the tree this year?
