I love that velvet is having a moment. 

Essentially 90's yet classically ladylike, it is the answer to all your festive dressing needs. While I am not a 'red' person and don't tend to like to wear it, even this time of year, I couldn't resist the rich burgundy shade of this top. I have talked myself into thinking that it would be great for Christmas festivities, New Year's Eve and even Valentines' Day! With this top being under $60, it practically earned that spot in your closet! {Size note, it seems to have sold out, but order it here in the tall version for a longer shirt. Size down. Or get this one in rust that is the same idea in another festive hue.}

The exact shoes in this post are from last year and unfortunately sold out.  Shop other shoes with the same festive feel below.

herringbone



This herringbone vest is one of the most worn pieces in my closet.

I love it over gray or beige cashmere, layered over workout layers or my favorite tee. I have worn it year around and all times of day {an outfit post is coming soon!}. You can get yours here for under $45!

Instagram Roundup

herringbone puffer vest


If you have a new mom on your Gift List, this diaper bag is my favorite! I was gifted the one for my daughter and gladly got one for myself for my son. Plus, this herringbone puffer vest paired with stripes has been my mom uniform of late. 

And I know that you are sick of seeing these black distressed skinny jeans and these ballet flats. If you see me around town, chances are I am wearing 3 out of 4 of these items!



black distressed denim


This was one of our first times out of the house all four of us...even if it was just to my parents'!







I know that you are sick of seeing pregnancy photos, but I loved these ones in this comfy white dress. You know that I love the thrill of looking for just the perfect outfit and I think I miss the added challenge of dressing for a bump!

This bag now comes in navy. I've already let Santa know I've been a good girl this year {but I think I might need this one!}

It is no secret that I love navy.

I view it as a basic and a neutral and will always pick it over other colors, when given the choice. My daughter, when she sees something in the color says, "Mama!" gleefully pointing to it. So it really is no secret...

And neither is my love for these vests! As seen in this post and this Instagram, I really can't get enough. I laugh when I see other bloggers use it in early fall or as a layering pieces, as I truly rely on it as my winter "jacket" here in San Diego. That must be why I legitimize having it in so many variations. I have worn it everywhere from on runs to date night, I truly believe it is that versatile!

As the holiday party invites start to flood your mailbox, it is a good thing to always be prepared with a gift for the Hostess with the Mostess!

As we get older, and {almost} all our friends have kids, the invites tend to come earlier to allow time for babysitting booking. This extra time also allows you to get a personalized gift, such as these classic cocktail napkins or these monogrammed koozies. The perfect holiday touch. We have our first holiday party coming up and it will be the first time that I leave both children. I am already nervous and second guessing if I can do it...But at least I already have a great hostess gift!
