Hey hey all!!! How are we hanging in before the holidays!? 12/22 is my last day of work until I am off until January – so excited! But this day has arrived so. slowly. Can’t wait for a few days off with my family. I explained why in this instagram post.
We got our holiday pics done earlier this month with my gal Henrietta of The Real HB Media and I wore my favorite holiday red wrap coat. I bought this coat last December when I was in desperate need of a winter coat and knew that since you can wrap it to any size, it would fit this year as well. Wrap coats are honestly the best – so flattering, and great for any size (pregnant, postpartum, no kids, etc.)
I first posted about this coat and linked my favorite wrap coats of 2015 here. So now I bring you…..my favorite wrap coats of 2016 below!
The ‘merlot’ colored coat I am wearing above is actually Vera Wang (but last season) so here is the look alike:

As it gets colder and colder outside, these warm coats come in handy -and like I mentioned I really feel you can re-wear from year to year. Such a key piece to invest in! Which one is your favorite? Where is your favorite place to purchase pretty winter coats?
Happy Holidays in advance my loves!
Hi Friends!! How’s it going? How are we feeling about the holidays? #Stressed? #Blessed? Have you made a list of what you’d like? The concept of asking for gifts gets stranger to me the older I get. Like, if I want something, I probably can’t wait till Christmas and I will most likely just buy it for myself at some other time in the year. I’m not saying that to come off like I can buy anything I want, but more to say I have no self control when I really want something, LOL!
My mom usually likes to get us one “big” gift for Christmas like a nice purse, a pair of boots, a new watch…basically it’s usually an accessory that is our one larger or more expensive gift. I’ll never forget the year that I needed a new CHI hair straightener but my little sister got one instead – I got really mad because I was selfish little jerk and these are the types of things sisters fight over. Am I right? Fortunately, I’ve grown out of this stage and know that gifts are truly one of the least important parts of the holidays at this point in my life.
When trying to think about the ONE gift I’d really want to ask for, I was actually having a lot of trouble, and still am! Normally I would have no problem adding like 10 purses to a wish list, but now it just seems silly to ask for that when 99% of the time I’m either at work or out with the baby – aka trying to minimize my bags and consolidate. When we go out on the weekends, I always throw my personal belongings in the diaper bag and hardly end up using a purse. Things you don’t think about before you have a baby. I first wrote about this here.
Alas, I’ve rounded up the best, most stylish diaper bags for you babes. Very KEY to remaining a cool mom. I have the first two and switch between them often! I think these are all great gift ideas for your own wish list, or for the “cool mom” in your life (yes I’m calling myself cool.)

I’ve talked about “time” in several previous posts – the shortage of time we are all up against, and how fast time flies, especially when we get caught up in “life.” I joked in my instagram post yesterday that I need a watch to constantly check out the time I don’t have 😂 how true is this though? I know so many of my other friends feel the race against the clock each day and truly understand that time is the most valuable asset we can possess. So I guess I wasn’t really joking afterall! I’ve been feeling this so much lately. Blocking time and being smart with how I use it is suddenly more important than ever.
On a lighter note – I’m so excited about this partnership with JORD Wood Watches not only because the importance of staying ” on track” each day, but because I am obsessed with watches – they truly bring a look together! I love neutral watches that I can wear with a variety of outfits. I have my ‘go-to’ silver, gold, black, and now a WOOD watch to wear on repeat.
Yes, this very good looking watch is made of super high quality wood! The face is large and the look is pretty masculine overall which I actually prefer. I don’t have a super feminine style and this dark color is perfect for all the brown and black I have been wearing this season. My exact style, called the Frankie in Dark Sandlewood & Smoke can be found here.
JORD offers both a line of men’s and women’s watches – both which are stunning, different, and eye catching to others. I’ve gotten so many compliments since wearing mine in both the office and social settings!
Because I want to share the love (duh) you can enter here to win $75.00 off a wood watch of your choice. Just by entering, you will receive a complimentary $20 off code for a watch of your choice. With the holidays coming, this would be a super cool gift for either a guy or girl in your life.
The contest will close November 6th at 11:59pm. Both the $75 and the $20 codes will expire on January 1st 2017. So get to entering 🙂
What else am I wearing?
