Wow guys, I can’t believe it’s almost 2018. I pretty much blinked and this year flew by. It’s been a pretty amazing year both personally and professionally blog-wise. It hasn’t been easy this year being a new mama and trying to grow my blog so I thought it would be fun to share with you guys a little “behind the scenes” and a few blogging tips I’ve picked up along the way. What does it take to get a blog post up? Keep reading if you want to find out….
If you’re like me, finding the perfect holiday party outfit can go one of two ways. You either walk out the door feeling cool, calm, and collected – or you are running out the door while still putting in your sparkly earrings and slipping on your strappy pearl heels. Can you guess which category I usually fall into? Ha! I am not the most organized person but I have found that when I actually take time to plan what I am going to wear getting ready for the evening it is a much smoother process. And take it from me, it’s much for fun to get ready when you have a few of the details planned out. That way you can take your time, sip some rosé, and get into party mode.
Apple pie for breakfast…all time high, or all time low? I’m gonna go with all time high to make myself feel better, haha! Still in my sweats and my baby boy just went down for a nap so I wanted to hop online to get this post up for you guys.
This sweater is almost sold out but they have few sizes left here and this one is super similar and really cute too! Also, I wanted to tell you guys about my pant-like-leggings I am wearing! So, this is my 2nd pair of these pants and I literally wear them multiple times a week. When I go to the office I typically pair them with a pair of flats and a cute blouse. And they are the perfect pants to layer under over-the-knee boots. But trust me – this is NOT a sponsored post I just love these pants a ton and wanted to share the love with you guys. They are super thick and suck you in like non-other. You can get them here and looks like they are offering 40% off today! Woo hoo!
The velvet trend this season is real you guys. Velvet has been one of my favorite fabrics for years now so you can only imagine my happiness right now. One quick walk through Nordstrom and you will see velvet popping up everywhere! I noticed velvet making it’s way into every department – from booties, to dresses, to top & pants, even jumpsuits (perfect NYE idea BTW).
Statement jackets are to fall like a good pair of sunglasses are to summer. WAIT – Who am I kidding? A good pair of sunglasses are kind of necessary year-round. No? I just love a good statement coat though. That and boots are my favorite things to buy for fall. Here is San Diego I can get by with a coat that is not made to withstand the polar vortex so we can have a little bit of fun with it. I am sure all of you southern California babes can relate though – it does get pretty chilly here in the winter months. More than most people might expect. I remember when I first moved to San Diego I seriously thought I wouldn’t need a coat or a jacket all year. I just thought California was always hot. Newsflash – I was wrong!
