Holiday Style With Stitch Fix + Link Up

Red Sweater

Do you dress up for the holidays?  I love a formal gathering, but unless I'm headed to my husband's work party or a local gala, you'll find me on the casual side during the holiday season.  At our family gatherings, I'll most likely be wearing jeans or leggings instead of a dress.  However, that doesn't mean that I don't like to look put together.  When dressing for the holidays, I like to take my everyday items, and take them up a notch.  This outfit is a perfect example, and what I plan on wearing to our family Hanukkah celebration this weekend.  Black jeans are my favorite to wear during the holidays because they tend to look dresser to begin with, then you can make them appear more polished with the right blouse or sweater, and accessories (the same goes for a pair of black leggings). This red sweater is actually from my latest Stitch Fix shipment, and is perfect for the holiday season.  The boxy cut is very comfortable, while the boat neck adds a dressier feel, plus you can't go wrong with the color!  I paired it with my paint splattered black jeans, which I also got from Stitch Fix last year (see them styled here).  The silver splatters give off a sparkle illusion, making them the perfect pant for the holiday season.  I finished my look with my studded pumps, which are still the most comfortable heels that I own, and some statement jewelry.

Although there were several items that I loved in my Stitch Fix shipment this month, this sweater is the only item that I ended up keeping.  I love how it can be dressed up, but is also the perfect everyday sweater.  In fact, I've already styled it with skinny jeans and leopard booties for a cute weekend look.  To see the rest of the items that were in my Fix, make sure to check out my Instagram Stories.  I saved the try on session under the Stitch Fix Highlight.

On another note, the Weekend Wear Link Up will be taking a break until after the holiday season.  Melissa, Sheree and I just have too much gong on in our personal lives to commit to hosting every Friday and decided it's best to pause it until after the new year.  Although I may not post every Friday, I still have fun content coming this month, so make sure to stop back!

Let the holiday parties begin!  Whether you're headed to a night out at your boss's house, or spending the weekend with your family, this gift guide will make sure that you don't arrive empty handed!  One of my favorite ways of making a gift more personal, is to monogram it, and that can be as simple as adding an initial.  In my opinion, one can never have too many mugs (or wine glasses), and this cheese board is perfect for the person who likes to entertain, and it's under $20!  For those who love to spend time in the kitchen, a cookbook makes a great gift, and my personal favorites are by Danielle Walker.  She makes dairy free and gluten free dishes taste SO good! And of course, one can never go wrong by showing up to a party with a bottle of wine, and this wine bag makes it extra special.

The One Skirt You Need For The Holidays + WW Link Up

Velvet Pleated Skirt
*This post contains sponsored content and affiliate links.  All opinions are my own.

Who's ready for Thanksgiving?  While I can't believe that the holiday is less than a week away, it happens to be one of my favorite holidays, so I'm excited.  If you're still wondering what to wear, then you should consider this velvet pleated skirt.  Not only do I find the color and the cut both feminine and beautiful, but it's super comfortable, and the elastic band is perfect for a devouring a large meal.  In fact, it's the perfect skirt to take you through the holiday season, as it can be dressed up or down.  I paired it with a pearl embellished sweater, giving the skirt a cozy, yet dressy feel, but you can pair it with a silk blouse and strappy heels for a holiday party. And if you want to wear it beyond the holiday season, you could also pair it with a tee, leather jacket, and booties (or sneakers) for an everyday look.

Also, if you're on the hunt for a great sweater to wear this holiday season, then this is it!  I love the balloon sleeves, and pearl detailing.  Not only does it looks great paired with a skirt, but it will dress up a pair of jeans, or go perfectly with velvet pants.

Quick Life Update + WW Link Up

Hi friends.  Life has been a little stressful the past few days, which is why I don't have a new outfit post today.  I had planned on sharing a perfect (dressy, yet comfortable) Thanksgiving day look, but unfortunately Tyler, my four year old son, got very sick this week landing us in the ER.  Which means photos, and editing were put to a halt.  Don't worry, I'll have the look, and some great Thanksgiving outfit ideas on the blog very soon.  In the meantime, make sure to link up your best looks this week, as I can't wait to see them!

Just a quick Tyler update, he is doing okay!  If you have been following along, then you know that he was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis this past July.  Although he wasn't yet in remission, he was doing really well over the past few weeks, until he came down with a little virus.  After a few days of on and off again fevers, he woke up Wednesday morning at 3am feeling sick, and ended up not being able to hold anything down all morning.  I took him to the ER to be checked out, as I knew he would need to be on IV fluids, and that's when we discovered he has Pancreatitis.  Because of this, we've been been at Children's for the past couple of day getting him better.  The good news is that he only had a mild case of pancreatitis and is bouncing back super fast.  The bad news, is after giving him a CT Scan, we discovered more inflammation of his colon, and his colitis is actually worse than it was two months ago.  We are praying that his new medicine will kick in soon and get this disease under control, so he can get back to being the happy, funny, kind boy that is normally him.
