I read a quote by Oprah yesterday: "We can't become what we need to be by remaining what we are." It felt like the perfect thought to close out the year and start fresh with the next one. See you in 2014

Grown Up Christmas List

sweater: zou styles // pants: paige denim (similar here) // boots: schutz (available here) // sunnies: ray ban (similar here)

Aside from a new vacuum and a Keurig, my Christmas list looked a lot different this year. I asked for patience to be the best mom that I can be... Bravery to be the best wife ... Understanding to be the best daughter...The ability to listen more than to speak to be the best friend ... and more hours in the day to be the best dog-owner. I hope you all got everything you asked for on your Christmas list :)

PS...if/when you get a chance this weekend you should check out Zou Styles.....I've become absolutely smitten with their pieces including this sweater and a sweater dress I'll be showing on Monday. And for you guys if you enter the code "Merry" at checkout you get 15% off!!!

Jingle All the Way

Merry Christmas!! Sam, Doodle and myself are all still very sick but the hubs stayed up all night building Doodle's train set so he would see it when he came downstairs this morning. As I'm typing this Doodle is still asleep and I know the look on his face will make all of this worth it. As soon as he gets up and see's his presents we are heading to the beach for Christmas number 3….hope you guys are having a wonderful day.

Sheww friends, last week was a doozy…..with everyone in our house being sick I honestly didn't make it out of the same pair of sweatpants until Friday. Doodle didn't go to school or take one single nap so let's just say my brain was a little bit fried…couple that with the overload of sequins and sparkles on the blogosphere lately and my eyes are literally burning. Anywhos….I'll see you guys again on Christmas morning, hope yours is merry and bright :)

Per usual my stand by mom on the go outfit is monochromatic with interesting details like mohair and fringe. These past couple of weeks have been insane and I literally haven't had time to think about what I'm going to throw on. (Although after seeing Sheree do gray and camel like a boss here I want to try that next). Tonight I'm headed to the beach for my 8th annual Christmas Girls Dinner….. Can't wait to catch up with all of my friends from home….most of us are either married, have children, are pregnant or engaged…..adulthood kind of snuck up on me :)

Its no secret I have a flair for the dramatic when it comes to my style…but over the past year I've learned that silhouettes, textures, and the occasional print can speak volumes louder than 30 different prints and colors going on in one outfit. I wore this stunning Castles Couture dress to a (great) friend's birthday dinner downtown a couple of weeks ago with some over the knee boots (with fleece lined thigh highs under) and a leopard cross body. I have to admit I wish I could wear this outfit EVERY day…..but I just don't think Doodle's (church) pre-school is ready for this many cutouts :)

The Doodle man and myself have been under the weather the past couple of days but we powered through our annual shopping trip like champs. I don't know about you guys but when I'm sick I crave comfort in the form of my favorite clothes. My 3 favorite scarves…my fave 2 pairs of Rag and Bone jeans, my moto style jean jacket  and some pairs of pony hair Sam Edelman shoes were just the ticket. Saturday night we went to our favorite Brazillian Steakhouse so I at least put a nice outfit on for that (plus I've had this vintage skirt for 5 years now and still have yet to wear it so it was time). Anywhos, wish us luck at the doctor today and remember your vitamin c :))
