My head to to look: c/o Barefoot Contessa 

Maddie: Arrow & Lace Designs

The holiday season is in full swing, and that means parties and festive get togethers.  Most of our parties are on the more casual side these days, but I make sure I have at least one occasion  to get all dolled up!  Besides choosing a flattering silhouette, I make sure that the pieces I chose for the holidays can still work there way into my wardrobe when the making merry season is over.  This skirt will be perfect in the Spring too and these shoes will go with anything!

Barefoot Contessa is one of those local fabulous boutiques that I am bound to score some perfect pieces of pretty.  I was drawn to this skirt immediately.  I adore this style of skirt (flattering on almost all body types), however the popular ones out there don’t exactly fit a gal with some curvy bits.  This skirt has all the components I’ve been looking for…elastic waist, lady like length, lined, a gorgeous print, and under $100. The store is full of so many beautiful pieces like taffeta skirts, faux fur coats, lacey dresses, and sequins galore.  They truly have anything I could possible need this holiday.

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is a month away today.  How did that happen?  This year I am planning on doing some cute little DIY prezzies and Christmas baking.  I am also working on some fun new posts for the holiday season, sharing some products I’m loving, and my Little Madelyn may even be making an appearance in a post or two.

I have officially come to the end of all the event planning I have had going on over the last couple of months.  LOVE planning events and parties (especially when one includes my Baby Girl’s first Birthday); but really appreciate when it all comes to an end and I have a bit more down time.  I spent the weekend with my two loves, just relaxing and doing a couple of fun outings.  Comfort was essential and so were these boots.

Love Winter is a Canadian company on a mission to make us fall in love with winter.  They want people to get outside and enjoy!  A perfect message for this time of year.  There is nothing I love more then getting all bundled and cozy and going for a family walk after dinner to check out all the Christmas lights in the neighbourhood.

The Love Winter boots are actually a modern version of a traditional Russian Valenki boots.  They are designed to keep you warm even during the coldest winter days.  My favourite feature is that they have interchangeable galoshes.  You can stick with a classic colour like I did or switch it up with bright pink, blue, or yellow!  The galoshes easily slip off the boot so you can go from outdoor boot to indoor slipper.  Love that!

Things have been craaaaazy lately.  Good crazy, but crazy.  I’ve been pouring myself into party and event planning.  This past weekend was my Baby Girl’s 1st birthday.  The party was so much fun!   I also have a HUGE client event happening this week, so with that comes the anxious excitement that I love.  Needless to say, this Lady is tired.  When I’m tired, all I want to do is wrap myself up in something delicious.  Lately that delicious has been my new J.Vansuch Studio scarf.  It’s luxe, cozy, and goes with everything.

All the designs of these scarves are limited edition prints.  Julie Vansuch’s textiles are made in Brooklyn, New York and Como, Italy and are all natural fibers such as silk, wool, and cashmere.  These are a definite must to add to your Christmas wish list.  Each scarf comes packaged in a beautiful signature gift box so they are easy to give…or receive.

Ladies, being stylish doesn’t mean you are forever in stilettos and rocking a red lip morning, noon, and night.  Some days a gal needs a classic jersey dress, cozy sweater, cute flats, with a few easy accessories thrown in.  When I’m running around with my Baby Girl I choose to be practical, but of course practical can still be cute.   Embrace your basics, and live your day to day life cutely comfortable.

If  you want to stock up on some amazing basics (and other adorable things), then head on over to GetPlenty.com  All my lovely readers can get  25% off the entire store including the sale section until the end of November (one time use per customer).  Use my shopping code JEN25. #LocalLove
