HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful start to 2018.
I recently found my perfect crossback jumpsuit at my favorite local East Nashville boutique and to say I’m in love is an understatement. I picked up this showstopper at Vinnie Louise a couple weeks ago and immediately snatched it off the rack when I felt how soft and buttery the material was. This was before I even realized the amazing crossback tie detail on the backside of it. I knew I had to have it instantly. 
crossback jumpsuit I ended up wearing this crossback jumpsuit on Christmas to my family party. Although it was in Michigan and it was frigid outside, I still liked the way it looked with a chunky cardigan over it. When I wore it out on a coffee date to Three Brothers Coffee with Steve over the weekend, I paired it with this cozy faux fur vest and my favorite fossil watch.

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas!! Popping in here real quick to share my holiday outfit. This comfortable, festive look is perfect for New Year’s Eve. I’ll probably be repeating this outfit for the occasion since I can’t bear to wear a short or sleeveless dress in the winter. There’s also something so cozy about wearing stretchy velvet and a flowy midi skirt.

Well, dang! I guess you could say I had my own little winter break there for a minute. I took a partially intentional/partially unintentional month-long break. I was planning to take about a week or so off from blogging so that I could be with my family in Michigan after my grandfather passed away, but it turned into a longer hiatus when I realized I had to re-prioritize some things in my life. The end of the year can be so crazy and I think it’s so important to head into a new year and a new season with clarity and some fresh perspective, so I’d say the break was more than necessary for me.

Speaking of the year coming to an end… when did that happen?! I can’t believe it’s mid-December. I’m afraid to blink. Although the sun setting slightly after 4pm has been a huge downer, I am happy to spend more time at home with a cup of hot chocolate and a good Netflix show. I think some quiet, cozy time is good for my mental health.

I love staple accessories. I’m not much of a jewelry and handbag buyer, so when I find pieces that I can wear with anything and that are wearable year-round, I’m all in. Especially during the holiday season when there seems to suddenly be more events, dinner parties, and family gatherings. It’s nice to find accessories (especially jewelry) that is both tasteful and timeless.

Whew, Monday! You are brutal. I’m happy to throw myself back into a steady routine after several weeks of traveling and being away from home on weekends. I had an incredible time in Orlando with some of my coworkers eating and drinking at the International Food and Wine Festival over the weekend. I’m so glad I went and had some quality time with strong, smart, ambitious women.

stripedAlthough I’m still trying to catch up on rest, I’m more ready than ever to get stuff done and hammer out some new projects and get some more things done around the house. I feel like after the first month or two of getting settled into our house I kind of stepped away from stressing about decorating and making all of the rooms look cohesive. Now I’m excited to get back into it and make our house extra cozy and festive for the holidays.
