Classic Daytime Holiday Party Look with Windsor Crossings Premium Outlets








Even though I love an excuse to get dressed up, not all Holiday parties happen at night or even indoors! Our weekends are jam-packed with daytime holiday events, like my personal fave, ice skating! There is something so charming and festive about ice skating over the holidays and as a bonus usually followed by hot cocoa with marshmallows. So, before you hit those holiday elements, I have teamed up with Windsor Crossing Premium Outlets to share with you my go-to Daytime Holiday Party Look!

In the late fall and winter, the outdoors are beautiful, but can definitely get chilly so this Holiday Party look is all about those layers. This flannel shirt from Gap Factory Store and matching distressed black denim are the perfect warm starting point for your outdoor outfit. These Sorel Boots from Tooties Factory Shoe Market help you take on all fall and winter weather and this Sweater-Cape from Urban Planet keeps it chic and cozy. Top it all off with a toque from Ardene and your all set to hit your nearest rink!

Classic Holiday Evening Party Look with Windsor Crossing Premium Outlets








The holidays are around the corner, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! But with great parties, comes great responsibility to look good! In the past, I’ve let holiday dress shopping wait until the last-minute, which never works in my favor. Everything is already picked over by then, almost gone or sold out in my size. So, before the holiday invites start rolling in, I have teamed up with Windsor Crossing Premium Outlets to give you 3 Classic Holiday Looks for this Soiree Season! Today, I will be sharing my go-to Holiday Evening Party Look!

This first outfit from Windsor Crossings is exactly the kind of look I love for the holidays - classic and polished while still remaining festive. I let the Black Lace Jumpsuit from Reitmans be the statement of my ensemble and paired it with sparkly Clutch from the Aldo Oulet and little extra bling from my assortment of stacking rings from Ardene. The great thing about a black jumpsuit is that it’s festive enough for the holidays, but you can also wear it year round. A big + in my book!

Jumpsuit: Reitmans | Clutch: Aldo Outlet | Rings: Ardene | Pumps: Aldo Outlet

With the holidays coming up, what are you guys planning on wearing?

Five Essential Nail Trends to Try
The fall is just around the corner! Here are five essential nail trends to try before the leaves start to turn color.
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles. - Audrey Hepburn

My mom and I went for manicures the other day. We had a family wedding to attend, so a manicure/pedicure was a must. However, what I don’t think she knows is how important these mani/pedi dates are for me. It’s our time to reconnect - we talk about everything from the usual work and husbands to fashion and workouts or we sit there in a comfortable silence (not usually, though!). My mom and I are best friends and we count on these moments because sometimes life gets in the way from good conversation.

On our last nail care date, I picked a basic summer pink; it’s pretty, it’s safe, and it’s typical, which is completely unlike me. My mom, who removed her smurf blue lacquer, replaced it with a flat, pale grey with purple undertones. It was stunning and I instantly wanted to change mine. With summer winding down, sandal season is too. So, surely our next trip to Sunshine Nails will be sooner, rather than later. With late summer weddings, birthdays and vacations, we have as many reasons to get together as we do to celeb [...]
