Tree Pickin

For the rest of the month, I’m using last year’s themes (before I knew about Polyvore and Pinterest) and creating new outfits for all the activities you and I may have this December.  I may make this an annual tradition.  Because this month is a doozy and anything that makes life simpler is a good thing!

A Week of Thanks- Black Friday

Wow.  I was out all night shopping so I’m sorry I’m a bit late with this post!
Black Friday means comfort over fashion.  I recommend three things:
1)  Comfy shoes
2) A hat- who knows what your hair is going to do after 12 hours
3) Dress in layers- today it was FREEZING and multiple layers were required
Lastly, don’t ever do Black Friday alone or with babies.  It just isn’t worth it.
Have fun shopping!

A Week of Thanks- Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!  Stop and think today of all the blessings in your life that you have, many of which are taken for granted.  And thank God for them!
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” -Psalm 107:1

SWL- Welcome Autumn

This week Lloyd recommends not falling 🙂 for the typical fall colors.  They are beautiful, those rusty reds, moss greens and mustards.  Instead, try to pair a few of those colors with beautiful bright year round colors.  And I have to say, I am really loving hot pink for fall.  It says the summer is ending and let’s celebrate the cooler weather intensely!
So here is my version of the outfit Lloyd describes as an example of an updated color palate for fall-

Pickin Pumpkins

I can’t wait to choose some pumpkins with the kiddos this fall.  We also enjoy picking apples and consider both a fun outdoor tradition, when available.  Sure a flannel shirt and a printed cardigan are a little cliche for fall but why fight it?  Embrace the things that make each season so enjoyable!

p.s.  That is a FOLD in the pants….!!

Beach Baby

Rule number one when traveling to the beach, keep it casual.  What may not pass on a vacation to the city will when sipping daiquiris with umbrellas.
Second rule (and this rule applies to all destinations), keep your wardrobe in the same color family and your options will be limitless.
Third rule, packing accessories is important.  On this trip you can leave your diamonds at home.  But taking a few fun pieces will help stretch the clothing items you bring.
In this case, wear the button up over the swimsuit for the beach and wear the swimsuit underneath the button up and jeans outfit at night as a cami.
You’re all set for the beach baby!
