coat tales

Coat season is here and it’s time to bundle up those little ones. Like most things, jackets and outerwear for the kiddos are just SO cute! I cannot get enough of these adorable coats from Old Navy, modeled by my twins, Jack and Lily. {And aren’t Lily’s boots to-die-for?! I want a pair in my size!}

I’m back today with the same faux-fur coat from Nordstrom I wore yesterday here on the blog. To show its versatility, I wanted to also style this favorite new coat dressed-down. Faux-fur is the ultimate “multi-tasking” winter accessory, transitioning from day-to-night with ease. This outfit is perfect for wear holiday shopping into a dinner out.

Today is part two of my series with Nordstrom featuring “coats under $200.”  This fabulous faux-fur coat by Sam Edelman has become my new favorite.  Not only it is a versatile piece for your winter coat wardrobe, but it’s also super warm for those chilly days and nights ahead.

Faux-fur and fur pieces can be a fashion challenge for many, so I am styling this coat two ways to showcase its versatility.  It’s appropriate for any occasion and can be dressed up or down for daytime or evening looks.

Today’s post is an evening look featuring another faux trend, leather leggings by Spanx. {These leggings are one of my favorite finds this season. They are incredibly comfortable and flattering, and I am wearing them with everything!} The coat’s tonal leopard print is the perfect completer piece for that date night adding dimension and texture to an all black outfit.

party perfect

The holidays are right around the corner and our social calendars are going to be filled with several occasions to celebrate the season.  To save you from waiting until the last minute for that perfect party outfit, here are four single standout pieces to give you just the right look wherever you’re headed.

:: sparkly tops ::

Edit by Lauren | party perfect

Add a little glitz and glam to your basic skinny jeans or black pants.  If your occasion is more casual, top it off with a denim or faux leather jacket.

Edit by Lauren | party perfect

 

:: statement jewelry ::

Edit by Lauren | party perfect

Costume jewelry can add a punch of pizazz to any look.  Choose elegant earrings, knock-out necklaces, or a bedazzled bangle.  Just don’t wear them all together – remember less is more.

Edit by Lauren | party perfect

 

:: fun clutches ::

Edit by Lauren | party perfect

Trade in your basic black bag for something embroidered, beaded, or embellished.  It’s the perfect way to recycle that little black dress.

:: sexy shoes ::

Shoes can also make a statement to any holiday outfit.  Look for details such as rhinestones, glitter, and intricate straps to rock your look.

Happy Shopping!

The oversized plaid scarf is the “must-have” accessory of the season. And it is the perfect way to look stylishly and casually festive for the quickly approaching holiday season!

Here are some of my favorites, all affordably priced under $40 ::

As the temperatures drop, many of us shiver with excitement anticipating Fall and Winter’s latest trends. The reality is that most of us ladies know exactly what pieces we’ll purchase for the season. We are taken care of, but what about the men in our lives? With so many trends to entice, it can be difficult to discern which ones are the best choices for our budgets and lifestyles, and which styles our men will wear with confidence.

I consulted my men’s style guru and friend, Jen Brinsmade of J. Hilburn Clothier, once again for her fuss-free, on-trend choices for the season. {Click here for part 1 of our men’s style series and for part 2 here.}

1.} Corduroy :: If your man would like to elevate his style, then corduroy is the fabric of choice when considering a new sport coat. Avoid the thicker corduroys of the past and opt for the thinner waled {also known as ridged} alternative that is softer to the touch and more insulating than those of the heavier variety.

2.} Shawl Collar Sweater :: This warm, cozy and sophisticated piece can be worn with a pair of jeans and in place of a sport coat. Most men love the look once they try it.

3.} Bomber Jacket :: Military inspired and oh-so-hip. Whether in nylon {see “shop the look” options below} or leather your man can’t go wrong with this as his go to jacket for wearing with jeans, cords or slacks.

Happy Friday!

A few of my current go-to laid-back essentials to kick off the weekend ::

1. A plaid blanket scarf. Love this super soft and affordable one from Nordstrom. Throw it on with jeans and a tee and you’ll instantly look chic.

2. A classic watch. This Daniel Wellington watch is stylish and elegant yet understated, perfect for any occassion. Love that this watch has interchangable straps. {My other strap is this striped one.}

3. Comfortable flats. Tieks are my go-to’s for comfy ballet flats, and this metallic pair goes with seemingly everything. {If you are on the hunt for cute flats for long days on your feet, search no further.}

4. Oversized tortoise sunnies. Every gal needs a pair, and this Gucci pair are a dream. {Here is a similar, less expensive version.}

5. A unique, delicate bracelet. This drusy bangle by Vitrine Designs is gorgeous and adds a bit of glam to any ensemble, even on a casual weekend.

6. A great lip-gloss. I’m the kind of girl who always has to have something on her lips, and this “Lucky Lips” gloss by Rae Cosmetics travels with me every where these days. It’s the perfect pop of color and shine, wearable alone for daytime casual as well as layered over lipstick for a night out.

7. A go-anywhere tote. This Anthopologie tote is perfection, and surpringly affordable, too. It’s one of my most-favorite recent finds! I use it as a laptop/book bag, an airplane carry-on as well as for long days of errand running.

If you are starting your Christmas shopping, all of these items make great gifts and stocking stuffers! {And stay tuned for our holiday gift-guides kicking off next week…}

Have a fabulous weekend!

If you’re like me, you’ll probably be participating in no less than 137 “exchange” parties this year.  Y’all know what I mean.  White elephant, Tacky Christmas, ornament, cookie, scarf exchanges…..it’s about to be ON.

My favorite exchange party of the season is an annual Favorite Things party I do with six of my girlfriends.  We each pick our favorite item that’s under $10, and then bring 6 of it.  It’s just like being at Oprah’s favorite things show, except instead of a new car, we all get a new lip gloss.  But, you know.  Similar.

Edit by Lauren | the holiday exchange party :: how to

Lip Gloss, Starbucks, and Tic Tacs? Seriously. Who needs Oprah?

The exchange party isn’t usually glam y’all.  You’re gonna eat, you’re gonna drink, you’re gonna steal that Slap Chop from your bestie, like a boss.  So, save the sequins for New Year’s, and get ready for a “how to” on these casual Christmas parties.

First up, the don’ts:

Don’t wear pajama jeans. Ever. Even if you got them at last year’s Tacky Christmas Party.

Don’t wear a reindeer sweater.  (Can we just do away with Tacky Sweater parties?  I mean, I can look tacky for free, 364 days a year. I do not need to pay cash money for an ugly sweater. Let mama dress up for a night, m-kay?)

Don’t wear your miniskirt or minidress….to this one.  Comfort is key.  Because, peppermint bark.

Now, here’s how to pull off a major DO:

Edit by Lauren | the holiday exchange party :: how to

Leather Jacket//Blanket Scarf//Ankle Bootie//Graphic Tee//Boyfriend Denim

Casual.  Cool.  Blanket Scarf (duh).

And, listen.  You can remix this outfit a million different ways for each party.  Wanna get crazy and do a military jacket?  GO FOR IT.  Feeling your skinny jeans instead of boyfriends?  DO IT.

Do you want to wear the exact same outfit to each party? Okay!

At least it’s not a tacky sweater.

Until next time,
