Ok ok, you caught me! I bought myself some Christmas presents. Oops! Tell me I'm not the only one who has done this? I promise I've been a really good girl this year ;) Here's the thing, the coat was on sale (I think it's still on sale too) and it would have been a crime to pass up a good deal. And the scarf matched the coat perfectly so obviously I had to get it too. I really had no choice, people. I've already worn the coat (well, they call it a blazer but I think it's more of a coat so that's what I'm going to call it) a few time* and I've been trying it on with every item in my closet-yes, I have mini fashion shows in my closet whenever I get something new-and it's made me realize how versatile a pastel coat is. Paired with winter pieces or darker colors, it's perfect for winter, but pair it with light colors and it transitions easily into Spring. I think I've made a pretty good argument for why I had no choice but to buy the coat and scarf. I rest my case.

*see my other outfit with the pastel coat here

I got my fur scarf last year and hardly wore it because we had such a warm winter. There's nothing worse than a 60-70 degree winter...except for maybe a winter full of blizzards. Half the country may have frozen last winter but I didn't get to wear my fur scarf because it was too warm. I think we can all agree we suffered equally. (Haha! Jokes! I know you blizzard people had it worse.) Anyways, we've been getting lots of storms and rain this winter (or is it still technically Fall?) so I am taking full advantage by wearing my fur. And if you're wondering where I wore this outfit to...I wore it to the DMV. I know, I know, I live a super glamorous life. lol.

P.S. Please keep those affected by the west coasts big storm last week in your thoughts and prayers. My preschool teacher's house flooded twice in one week, causing a ton of damage to their home and personal belongings.

CURRENTLY CRAVING : NYE + LAST MINUTE GIFT IDEAS

new-years-eve-outfit-ideas
I can't believe that Christmas is next week and that soon it will be the New Year! I get to spend all next week with my family and I'm so super excited! I thought I'd share some pieces that would be great for NYE. Can you guess what I'll be wearing? My sequin blazer, of course! I can't get enough of it! If you're still doing some last minute shopping, keep scrolling down for some gift ideas under $50 for her, him, and kids. I'm usually all done with my shopping and have all my gifts wrapped by now, but I'm slacking this year. I do my grandpa's shopping for my mom (my mom does all his other shopping for him but I don't want her to have to buy her own gift) and I still need to buy her two more things. Happy Last Minute Shopping my friends!

PLAID JEANS + LAYERS

Ok, so I realize I've been posting a lot of plaid recently. Three out of my last four outfits consisted of plaid. But what can I say? I love it! Two years ago I had zero plaid in my closet and now, now I've got at least ten plaid items. The person not happy about my new found love for plaid...the hubs. He's been wearing plaid (and when I say wearing, I mean it's practically the only thing he wears) since before we started dating nearly ten years ago and apparently I'm "stealing his style". lol. It doesn't help my case that I actually have stolen a couple plaid shirts from him. The other day we left the house in matching plaid and didn't even realize it until a stranger pointed it out to us. They say once you've been together for a long time, you start looking like each other and I guess that's happening to us. Now before we leave the house together, we have to have a plaid check to make sure we don't match. Haha!
