5 Winter Outfits

Hi guys! Sorry I haven't posted for a few days. I got busy planning our party, then I got sick, and I had a sick little boy who kept saying, "hold me" and I couldn't refuse. Now my son and I are feeling better, the party was a success, and I've got five outfits to share. 

In December, I like to dress up a little more since any get-together (even a play date) feels festive. It's just fun to add a little sparkle to these short, cold days.

Denim shirtdress, leggings and zipper ankle boots. I added a sparkly belt and bracelet to make this feel a little more celebratory. 

Polka dot top, a-line skirt, leggings and zipper ankle boots. This top is as easy as a t-shirt but it looks nice and can be dressed up. It's always great to have a blouse that's secretly a t-shirt, but especially in the winter, when there are so many parties and get-togethers. It's nice to dress up just a little but still be comfortable and un-fussy.

Striped t-shirt, flared jeans and green sneakers. Here's my most common uniform: a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers. I've been wearing a version of this for my whole life and it still works. 

Metallic t-shirt, pinstriped pants and fringe ankle boots. Here's my uniform, dressed up. I think I have to hand-wash this shirt, but other than that, it's an easy way to add some sparkle.

White t-shirt, yellow cardigan, boyfriend jeans and tan oxfords. The jeans and t-shirt are made a little less casual when worn with oxfords, a colorful cardigan and a long necklace. 

How is your December going so far? I hope you're having fun! This can be a stressful time, but it can also be a time to appreciate our families and friends and spend more time with the most important people in our lives. It's a great time to enjoy being cozy and warm inside our homes. We can snuggle under the covers a little earlier and get plenty of sleep. Sleeping more helps to reduce stress and improve memory, plus it helps us to look our best during this season of many photos!
