Holly Jolly Weekend

This weekend we released our limited edition Kiel James Patrick McCallister sweater. Only 100 were made. Most of them have sold out already but we might still have a few left online. Kiel and I wore matching sweaters for a short walk around Providence. We bundled up Harris in this adorable coverall from LL Bean. It's sized for 0-3 months but still really big on him. I have a feeling it will fit him perfectly later this winter. He looked so cute bundled up and the coverall kept him warm and cozy.

There are so many beautifully decorated houses in Providence this year. I had to take a picture of this festive classic doorstep. I really love seeing how people decorate their homes for the holidays! It aways puts me in the spirit of the season.

Wrapping gifts nice says you care twice -- I've only wrapped a few gifts so far. I still have quite a bit of Christmas shopping to do. I tend to be last minute with a lot of things but this year even more so. We introduced these adorable Kiel James Patrick sweater gift tags last week. I get very excited when it comes to buying wrapping paper, bows, tags, and ribbon. It was really nice to use own product this year. We also released these Christmas cards and a Bennie 2018 calendar

It finally snowed in Rhode Island this weekend! The snow makes everything more magical and cozy, especially right before Christmas. Kiel and I spent most of this weekend indoors  snuggling with Harris and it was perfect. I  enjoyed waffles made by Kiel in the morning and Hallmark movies all day. (We also watched Die Hard. According to Kiel it's a Christmas movie. I didn't hate it!) I was especially comfy on the couch covered with this faux fur Pottery Barn blanket. They recently sent it to Kiel and I. It's my new favorite blanket and Bennie loves it too!

Red and Gold Decorations









Sweater: Sandro Jeans: 7 for all mankind c/o Shoes: Carolina Espinosa (similar) Bag: Mansur Gavriel c/o Hat: Anthropologie (similar) Glasses: Karen Walker
Kiel:  Sweater: Ralph Lauren (vintage) Pants: 7 for all mankind c/o Boots: LL Bean

This has been the best weekend for decorating. Kiel and I not only put up our Christmas tree but we also bought several wreaths and garland to dress up the outside of our house. Kiel loves to dress festively almost every day this time of year. He always pairs one of his vintage holiday sweaters with a classic pair of cords or chinos. The pants featured today were from 7 for all mankind. For him they were an ideal fit, not to0 tight and not too loose. He was really happy with the quality of the material.

We both dressed casually this weekend. I usually cannot resist a holiday skirt or dress to wear when decorating but I really wanted to be comfortable. These jeans felt well worn and broken, just the way I like it. I love the pearl detailing at the top of the pants. It's a fun and unexpected touch that also works for holiday. See more of our 7 for all mankind pants picks for him and her below.

Holiday Shopping Bug









Sweater: kate spade Shirt: kate spade c/o (similar) Skirt: kate spade c/o Shoes: Miu Miu (also love these) Bag: kate spade c/o Bracelets: kate spade 1,2 c/o Glasses: Gucci (also love these) Lipstick: Marc Jacobs // Miss Scarlet c/o 

Tis the season for gifting. I put together a gift guide below with a few of my must have quirky, fun, and classic gifts from kate spade. These are perfect for best friends, mothers, daughters, sisters, etc. I absolutely love the champagne print found on the makeup bag and scarf. The owl gloves are too cute, and a Paris planner is always a good idea. One can never go wrong with a great smelling candle and the leopard pajamas look so cozy! 

The outfit featured in this post is one of my favorites! I'm loving silver for the holidays. I've been looking for a sweater like this for a while and had to have it. It has a vintage look that I love. The shimmery skirt is perfect for holiday parties. It would also look great with a white turtleneck sweater and heels. The pieces worn in this post are great for mixing and matching to create festive looks for this season.

We Love Christmas a Latte









Dress: Eliza J Sweater: Kate Spade (also love this coat paired with it) Shoes: Miu Miu (silver sold out, similar) Bag: YSL Glasses: Karen Walker Earrings: Tory Burch

I love dressing up for the holidays. It's the only time of year I can incorporate fun glittery pieces into my wardrobe. After New Year's Eve I've always found glitter and sequins to be difficult to pull off. On a side note, I don't think I will be able to resist wearing these Miu Miu shoes featured year round. I'm in love!

This look featured from Nordstrom  is perfect for holiday parties and New Year's Eve. The shoes are a bit of a splurge but I just had to have them. The pearl details are everything. Nordstrom's easy returns made this purchase a no brainer for me. If the shoes didn't work out it would have been very easy for me to send them back. Lucky for me they are keepers! They sold out right away.

This dress by Eliza J has a pretty, classic silhouette. I love the pearl and rhinestones sewn around the neckline. I wore mine with a rhinestone cardigan to dress it down . It also looks great with black tights or no tights, a festive faux fur coat, and a pair of dressy heels for holiday parties. I found the fit to be true to size.

Below I linked a few splurge worthy designer shoes and similar shoe styles for less along with  a few must have holiday party dresses. 

                                Special thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I have a lot to be thankful for this year. At the top of my list is my family. Harris is the most precious gift in the world! Kiel and I loved including him in our almost yearly Thanksgiving tradition of decorating the outdoor tree in New Hampshire at Kiel's parents house. See last year's post here. This holiday was extra special having a little one around. 

We recently introduced a new line of skirts for Kiel James Patrick. I'm wearing one in this post. It's currently 25% off with our annual Black Friday Sale. Our cozy cabin flannel dresses are also back in stock!
