It’s always challenging to shed my daily wardrobe of pj’s and cozies after the holidays and get back to actual clothes.  I refuse to be uncomfortable so I’ve been gravitating to my collection of knit dresses in my closet.  This one you’ve seen before and is an absolute favorite.  I wear this dress for everything from lunch and coffee dates, to running errands, to dinner parties.  I must do another Nicole Bridger shop soon!

New Years Eve used to be about me shopping for a new fabulous outfit, getting all dressed up, and breaking in a new pair of heels until the wee hours of the New Year.  Soooo, life has changed a little.  This year I’m shopping my own wardrobe, finding something cute but comfortable, and I’ll be sipping champagne with my loves until…well, until we get tired and decide it’s time to go to bed.  {You can always celebrate Eastern time.}

We have no idea what exactly we’ll be doing tonight, but we know it will be low key and as a family.  This look I styled with items from my wardrobe.  I  kept comfort the priority and then added touches of shine and glamour.  Tonight’s look might be an even more casual approach, but I’m ok with that; as long as there is bubbly.

Happy New Year!

This time of year is definitely all about socializing.  It’s impossible to have a new outfit for every occasion, however getting creative with layers and textures can transform your wardrobe to something new.  This outfit gave me that perfect balance of cozy but polished.  I layered two dresses to achieve my desired look.  I was warm enough to be outside taking pictures but not too warm when we were inside sipping London Fogs.  I feel like this one will be making a repeat showing over the holidays.

I will have a last minute Christmas gift post coming this weekend! Be sure to check back for some fun ideas.

I am a Christmas movie nut.  I get as many in this time of year as possible.  Even the terribly cheesey and predictable made for TV ones. {I actually cried watching one the other day. Such a loser…I know.}  Of course I also have my favourites like Love Actually.  Last night with Madelyn in bed and my husband at hockey, I made myself a cup of peppermint tea and soaked in this holiday movie must.  I remember back to my single days of watching this movie and how I would wish for big love in my future.

When I was single at Christmas I would make wishes for my future self.  I wished for things that now seem so simple, but then felt huge.  I wished for a house.  Somewhere I could plant flowers, paint the walls whatever colour I wanted, and feel proud to own.  I wished for a husband.  A wanted a man who I would adore and who would do anything for me.  I wished for a family.  A little girl all my own to love and sing to and rock in my arms.

Now here I am years later, and all of those Christmas wishes have come true.  Whenever I have a moment and I get that “I need more”  attitude, I like to remind myself of the amazing things that have come true for me.  These wishes, although as basic as they may seem, are really what life is all about.  Comfort and Love.

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.
