The Sweatshirt Edit

Winter Layers

You know when you come across something that just fits - not just in size, but in personality?

That's how it was when my sister discovered these comfy cotton-terry pullovers at our most beloved place to shop, Anthropologie.  

I absolutely LOVE all three of these sweatshirts.

Kelly bought the "CIAO" and I immediately wanted it. I almost bought the same one, until I saw the other styles. I followed suit with "LA FEMME." 

It took little convincing for my youngest sister to get the "JOIE DE VIVRE." We all share clothes, and I know these will be on rotation, given their ease and versatility.

While the humble sweatshirt might be something most throw on to run an errand or hit up the gym, it's also become a super-chic layering staple. I love a slouchy, relaxed look for that low-maintance, off-duty vibe.

Elevated weekend wear, all-the-time wear.

I got mine in a small, and probably could have gotten away with an XS, given the "oversize" nature of the look. (I like to have a little more room!) If you are on the fence about a clever graphic sweatshirt, go for it! Not only are they comfortable, but they are stylish and cute. Perfect for when you don't know what to wear, great paired with jeans and boots/flats. Lately I've been into the juxtaposition of a flouncy skirt with a casual top. I could see any of these paired with feminine tulle and sporty sneakers.

As you can see, over the holidays my besties/sisters were in town (que: we're the three best friends that anybody could have!) and we all cozied up in our graphic sweatshirts for a little fun in the snow.

I convinced Rob to hang the tree swing and wrap it in twinkle lights. I love how it turned out! When it's all lit up it reminds me of a little doll house accessory lol. It's been too cold to go outside and play again, but I can't wait to get some sure-to-be-entertaining pictures with the kids!

It was magical to have a white Christmas, but now that the temps are dipping even lower into the negatives, I would recommend buying and wearing all three of these at once!!

Do you think sweatshirts can be stylish? Which one would you pick? I'd love to know in the comments below!

Pops of Primary

Springtime Stripes

I can't think of anything that goes together as well as rain boots and stripes. This pair always manages to look cute and preppy. Mix in some primary colors and you will be giddy a school kid ready to jump in the puddles!

When searching for the perfect striped dress to pull-on-and-go, look for high-quality material, comfort, and ease. Not fitted, but shows off your figure. Cotton with a hint of stretch is great for spring/summer. A dress that hits just above the knee will allow you to wear it with everything - sandals, flats or wedges (and of course your wellies!)

A striped dress is an easy daytime option you can wear all day at work and get away with Friday at happy hour. (I seriously live in mine this time of year!)

I found this particular one {on sale now!} at J. Crew Factory. I own the same top in a few colors, and love this fresh cream and red combo. It’s a nice thick fabric, but runs a bit large from what I read in the reviews. How cute would it be with a decorative J. Crew necklace?!

Add a raincoat, a quirky lemon-squeezy bag and you are ready for the weekend - rain or shine!

Plaid With A Pom

Jessica Wagner

Christmas Tree Farm 

Family traditions can fill you with blissful joy or send you to into survival mode.  

So you better dress the part! (Let’s see who can guess by the end of this post if we were in “blissful joy” or “survival mode.”)

Layers of plaid and pops of primary make for a festive (and toasty warm) outing. Christmas Tree Farms require you to go outside and walk around, so while it seems obvious, this is a place you want to be cozy and comfortable. Say no to tulle skirts and heels, unless you plan on freezing your pretty tail off and leaving without a tree.

A playful hat, a thick scarf, and tall boots are a must. This dark blue equestrian-inspired cap adds a contemporary touch to a casual look. Layer under your woolliest coat with a solid turtleneck and preppy button down. The more berry red and mistletoe green the better.

Classic Hunter boots will keep your toes and feet protected from the blanket of needles, and prove once again to be the best boots ever. (Last seen here.) They are also a requirement for chasing after hot chocolate-fueled children.

I seem to have a category of clothing that comes out once a year (my sequin deer sweater for one) and these bright red skinnies. This candy-red vibrant shade brings any outfit into the holiday spirit.

Speaking of holiday spirit, I’m in a sharing mood. (Can you sense that this post has a lot of parenthesis? Hinting that I have comments to interject between my attempts to just write this out.)

Our trip to the tree farm this year almost sent my husband and I on a holiday strike (yipes!) Somehow (as they always do) things have a way of working themselves out, and we pulled together and were able to enjoy the crisp outdoors among the wooded forests hunting for the perfect pine. (No matter that one child refused to put on pants and the other only wanted to wear the same shirt he’s been living in for the last three weeks. I mean, I knew he would like a Grinch shirt - I did not know he would refuse to wear anything else and start to smell like said Grinch. Let’s hope it runs its course by the 25th.)

Last year we started the Christmas Tree Farm family tradition, and had the most magical time. We selected the sweetest Charlie Brown tree that needed some love; sipped hot chocolate on a horse and carriage ride, and the tree man snapped one of my favorite family photos to date.

This year . . .  let’s just say it was a little less enchanting and little more holiday comedy of errors. Coco was there to see the chickens, and made it her life’s mission to try and escape every chance she got (birds of a feather.) We could barely keep her hat on (it was cold!) and Noah just wanted to hug trees. We didn’t get a great family pic and as these things go, no matter how much you prep to make it all fun down to the dirty details, it all felt a little – dare I say it, forced?  So we stopped trying to channel that charming experience from last year and went with the nutty chaos. Do you know what? We still found the one, shared hot cocoa by a giant campfire and as tradition, listened to our favorite holiday record as we trimmed our tree that night, and she’s a real beaut.

So yes, while these family outings and traditions usually call for a good time had by all, don’t feel bad if you’re dashing through the snow and no one is laughing all the way. Or if no one seems like they want to be there. Ha! Because someday you will look back on that awkward family photo and smile, and the kids will remember that growing up you gave them more than just the things the asked for, but built them a castle with a forest, they will always be able to walk through, each tree filled with a memory. Raising young ones and keeping tradition alive can be a challenge, but know keeping those traditions is something everyone will look forward to year after year. 

Hope you are all enjoying this time of year to the fullest. As for me, I am off to enjoy what I hope will be a quiet weekend at home. Right! So wish me luck babes! :)
