Metallic Skirt

Metallic Skirt

Merry Christmas Eve, friends!  I hope you are all relaxing and enjoying today! We’re quickly running out to grab a few last minute things before we head to our Church Christmas Eve service this evening. This outfit is totally not important on a day like today, but I thought it might be fun to share! The minute I saw this gold metallic skirt, I knew it would be perfect for this Holiday season! And paired with ruffles? Yes, please!

How to Create a Jewelry Capsule

By now, most of you have heard about the Capsule Wardrobe trend. The idea that less is more in your wardrobe. Instead of having a closet full of clothes (that you probably never wear), you select a few essential pieces that don’t go out of style; creating a mini wardrobe. The average capsule has 20-30 pieces and last for 3 months. You just mix and match those essential items to create new looks everyday! Obviously this makes getting dressed super easy, but it also saves so much money, because you’re not shopping for clothing as often!

Using this idea as a jumping off point, I wanted to create an ‘Accessories Capsule’. A grouping of accessories that you can wake up and throw on everyday and feel put together. No guess work. One of the biggest things I hear at my Trunk Shows, is women that say “I never wear jewelry, I just don’t know where to start.” This is my favorite. I understand, when your looking at a table full of  Statement Necklaces and Arm Parties, it’s intimating to women who just don’t know where to start. That’s where the jewelry capsule can help.

How to create a Jewelry Capsule: 
Start with a delicate Necklace; I love any piece that tells a story. Think about an engravable or an initial piece. Then add in light earrings; A thin hoop, delicate drop, or studs. Add one bracelet to layer with your everyday watch. If your day to day style is casual, think about adding a leather wrap bracelet. If it is more dressy or in a business setting, add a bangle. Finish the look with a ring or two.

Weekend Scenes

Hey, hey! I hope you all had a great weekend! I went to Arkansas on Saturday for a fun Brunch themed Trunk Show and I’m pretty sure we may have skipped over Fall and straight to Winter here in Oklahoma! It was so cold!! I love any excuse to wear my fur collar from loft, so Im not complaining!

On Sunday we hosted a Wedding Shower for my cousin and his fiancé at our home. They are headed to Canada after their wedding, so we used that as our inspiration for this ‘Rustic Winter Wonderland’ themed shower.  Lots of buffalo check, woodgrains, and the cutest little bottlebrush trees!

Sweater Weather

I’m so excited that its finally cooling down enough to pull out my favorite sweaters! I love this oversized sweater from H&M that I purchased a few years ago. It is the perfect blush pink and still looks great! I am linking a similar one from H&M below. Stylist hint: when styling an oversized top, make sure to pair it with skinnies or leggings. You don’t want to get lost in your clothes! Same applies; if you are wearing a wider pant (like a wide leg or culottes), you will want to pair it with a more tailored top.

Thanksgiving Style

Let’s talk Thanksgiving! Theres still plenty of time to finalize menus, so today we’re talking about what we’re wearing! My go-to Thanksgiving style needs to be able to do two important things; allow me to chase my wild children (#momstyle) and be flowy/stretchy enough that I can eat seconds if I so choose! This outfit meets both of those requirements and still looks so chic! I went simple with a white blouse, skinnies and booties. I accessorized with my favorite faux-leather cognac jacket and Stella jewels!

What I Wore: Statement Jacket

I have never been one to shy away from statement piece and this jacket is no different! Can you believe this is from Gap? Every now and then, I love that they give us something a little unexpected. I’ve had this jacket for a few years and I love how current it still feels. I think that the key to wearing a piece from your wardrobe from year to year, is to keep the rest of your outfit very fresh and on trend. I paired this jacket with an easy boyfriend cut gray tee, black skinnies and lace-up flats. Of course I added statement earrings, a delicate necklace and my FAVORITE leather crossbody!
