Disney Day: Part 1

Jacket || Dress || Shoes || Gold ring
Ahh, Disneyland. The most fun (and happiest place) on earth! We were so grateful to join my husband’s family for a fun-filled California vacation, which included time at the two glorious parks. There were churros, popcorn, more churros and very warm temperatures. We enjoyed running and practically leaping (yep, we are that family) from ride to ride picking up the occassional FastPasses along the way. I’ve never been to the parks with kids, so it was an entirely new experiences seeing little faces light up at everything! It made everything that much more fun. 
Can we discuss the Disney decor? We timed our visit perfectly – it was my favorite time! The flower beds replaced with poinsettias and the two-story tree at the entrance to Main Street are my favorite features. I love seeing everything decked out in Christmas finery. It makes it a bit more magical (if that’s even possible)!

Friday Finds: Anthropologie

Does anyone else get excessively excited when the newest Anthro catalog arrives? Each issue is brilliantly designed and the themes are always so on trend. The winter editions are always useful for heightening my holiday spirit! I recently received the current issue and as usual, it didn’t disappoint. I like to think that marketing campaigns don’t influence my buying practices, but 20 minutes later, I was on the Anthropologie website, hot chocolate in hand, browsing the new arrivals with my credit card at the ready. Luckily, I exercised some self-control and made a wish list instead. These are some of my favorites – enjoy!

The Perfect Holiday Pieces

Faux Fur Bomber || Earrings || Top || Faux Leather Skirt || Chain Clutch || Pumps

If you’re like me, you’re already excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Getting geared up for Thanksgiving makes a bit more sense at this point, but I’m one of those people who listens to Christmas music at the first glimpse of snow on our mountains. Some of my friends (you know who you are) call me a Thanksgiving Hater, but I don’t even mind. If I can squeeze even two extra weeks out of this holiday season, I’m on board! I’ve already done my best to incorporate something sparkly, gold or red in every outfit, which inspired today’s wish list look. In looking for holiday party looks, I tend to stick with black as a base and layer accordingly depending on the dress code of the event. Adding a colorful top or chandelier earrings is usually inexpensive, but can add so much! What’s your favorite part of dressing up for the holidays?

A Little Bit of MK for Your Wednesday

Blazer || Tank || Necklace || Bag || Leggings || Boots

Happy Wednesday, friends! Sorry for the brief hiatus, but it sure was nice! Details of our trip tomorrow! I’ve recently been in love with this Michael Kors bag and thought I’d share this outfit inspiration that I created with it in mind. Leggings and sleek boots (with eye-catching hardware) make up my usual fall and winter uniform. Paired with a breezy tank and a fitted blazer, it transitions perfectly from the office to post-work shopping trips. And aren’t those MK boots to die for?! I’m hoping I’ll see them (and that must-have bag) under the tree in a few weeks…any takers as the generous gift-giver?
