Easy Weekends

Twenty fifteen has been off to a good start. It’s been filled with busy weeks and plans for the coming months. It’s crazy to think that we’re already starting to fill up our summer months with travel plans, a baby shower, weddings, birthday parties…you name it. With all the planning, it’s easy to feel a little brain dead after a long work week. To make life easy on the weekends, I’ve been reaching for simple, comfortable pieces that don’t take too much thinking. Now is a great time to add some more sweaters and jackets to your closet after all the holiday sales.

PS. This rag & bone hat has become a life saver, especially for those days when I don’t feel like doing much styling (or washing). The husband likes to call it my ‘Indiana Jones’ hat, but I beg to differ.

Jackson Hole, WY

Jackson Hole lived up to everything I had imagined it to be. The Teton mountain range was nothing short of beautiful and the wildlife was amazing (you can see more of our adventures here) .While I still have so many places to travel to, I may have to return to Jackson Hole for a summer vacation.  DSC_0484 DSC_0272 DSC_0383 DSC_0496 DSC_0329 copy DSC_0505

Jewel Tones

I love wearing black. It’s slimming, always in style and a complete no brainer. While it’s tempting to fall into that safe zone in my closet, I’m mixing a few jewel tone colors today for a revised winter look. I kept things simple on top since these skinny coated jeans do the talking. To compliment the deep forest green color, I added an embellished eggplant clutch (under $50). Jewel tones can create a very lush look, especially when they are layered or paired with other jewel tones.

Faux Fur Jacket

This year for Christmas, my husband and I headed to Jackson Hole to spend the holiday with my side of the family.It was our first time exploring the quaint cowboy town as well as enjoying an ultimate white Christmas. With the bone chilling temps each day, it was essential to layer like crazy. I brought along this vintage faux fur jacket for additional warmth.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and happy new year!

Over the Knee

My OTK (over the knee) boots are becoming my most favorite accessory this fall and winter. While I’ve worn them countless times with jeans (here and here), I love the way they show just the right amount of skin with a skirt or dress.
