Layering is a must, so I thought it would be good to place this plaid boyfriend shirt from Old Navy under this knitted sweater. The look needed a little colour, and my options were limited since I am on vacation and do not have access to my full closet with more choices. My knitted sweater and jeans are from Loft. These Tory flats have been on repeat as they are what I travelled with, and my Gucci Hobo carries the personals. 2016 is almost here, stay blessed and stay focused.

Beanie A Must....

With the unpredictable weather here in the DMV (D.C, Maryland, Virginia) area, my hair holds no curls, so a beanie is in full effect.  I am so glad that I chose to travel with this hat because it blends well with everything. This tunic I scored from Target, and it is perfect. My corduroy skinnies are from Loft and they are a winner in this unpredictable weather. My boots are from Sam Edelman and this chestnut color works great with my neutral pallette. My Gucci hobo is a great accent that can hold so much stuff it is amazing. We spent part of the day in Foggy Bottom (The George Washington University) amidst the drizzles of rain and the sparse sunshine. I hope that everyone had a great Tuesday, stay blessed and stay focused. The New Year is fastly approaching are you ready?

Weekend in the City

I spent the weekend in New York City with my family. My children always enjoy coming to the city this time of year to look at the tree at Rockafella Center and the wonderful window displays at Macy's 34th street. It is lovely in the city, the lines for Radio City Music Hall to watch the Rockettes do their high kicks are around the block, and everyone is a little more friendlier because of the holidays. I hope that everyone had a great Christmas and is looking forward to the new year. As always I wish everyone continuous  blessings into the New year, thanks for reading.

The Perfect Ski Sweater

This perfect ski sweater is great for the rainy weather in Maryland today, I scored it from J Crew. No coat needed, just a great umbrella. Since I am on vacation, I don't have my rain boots so the Reva patent flats from ToryBurch will just have to do. My plaid shirt underneath the sweater is from Old Navy and it is the boyfriend cut, so it is nice and long (go down a size). My comfy jeans are from Loft and I am a true believer in this brand. My Gucci tote carries all I need on this holiday, so it works great. Xmas is getting closer, so enjoy the holidays as it will be here befor we know it.

It's Cold Outside!!!!!

With 30 degree weather starting the day here in D.C, it is only fair that I limit my picture taking to the indoors. I hope that everyone is having a great week, my family and I will be exploring the great outdoors visiting some museums here in D.C. Our trip took us to the Halocaust Museum, and the  Smithsonian, it was great.

A Dash of Red....

All it takes is a dash of red to any outfit this time of year and you can consider yourself dressing for the holidays. I am guilty of wearing more red in the December month than any other time of year, it makes me feel festive and brings that celebratory feeling. Friday was our last day of school for the year and I am happy to have a mental break.  We are traveling this holiday, so that bring some physical stress, but I am happy for health and the ability to do it. As always, stay focus and stay blessed. Remember that everyday could be a great one, the choice is up to you.

Winding Down!!!!

 I hope everyone had a great start to their week. I am winding down to my winter holiday from school, it will start off hectic at first, but I can't wait to sleep late.  My top is from loft, and it is a soft denim material that sits well and not too stiff. The skinnies are from J Crew, along with the mohair shoes  and the necklace. My bag is from Boden's, and it has the most room in it to carry everything. Stay blessed and stay focused. Thanks for reading.

Everyone's Favorite Scarf.... The Blanket Scarf

Saturdays always works well for running errands and then a good dinner. Today was great, I got all my errands accomplish with no hassel, the stress is coming, I just don't know when..... hahaha. The blanket scarf sits well on this windy day over this stripped Banana Republic sweater. Loft makes the best skinnies in my opinion, this is why I have about five pairs of the same wash, obsessive right, but I get it. The flats are from ToryBurch and they are super comfy, I scored these at the black Friday sale online, the price was great because I also used my bithday giftcard from ToryBurch to help make the purchase. My bag is Kate Spade and it is a winner, the red is vibrant and great as an accent this time of year. Enjoy the remainder of your weekend everyone, stay blessed.

It's Cold Outside

I am so happy it is Friday, and I can actually relax for a while. It's a little cool here tonight so warm PJ's are a must. Enjoy your weekend everyone. My comfy vest is an old one, but it is on repeat  from last year, The plaid flannel shirt is from Target, and it is very comfy. My jeans are from Michael Kors, as you can see I am working my way back into my flats with this comfy Kate Spade design. My bag is Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote, and I love the way it holds all the stuff that I carry in my bag without loosing its shape, or look bulky. As always, thanks for reading.

Sunday Brunch Look....

As most of you know, I had surgery on both my feet this past summer and wearing heels was not considered at all. I found these Vince Camuto sandals on sale during that time and purchased them, now I am getting to wear them, they are very comfortable. Wore them to brunch this morning, and it was awesome, love them..... This red top is a an oldie that I wear this time of year, the jeans are Michael Kors and they wear well, they are my only jeans from his line and they feel great. I am a big fan of comfort, and this outfit does that for me, it's festive enough for the season, and it looks great. The work week starts tomorrow, looking forward to a busy next three weeks as we count down to the christmas holiday break at school. Remember to make it a great week, the choice is up to you.

Saturday Comfort Look....

This holiday week from school sure went by quickly, I can't believe Monday is only 48 hours away. whew!! However short it may be, I am very thankful for the break from the daily routine.

Red Accessories from my closet

This Brahmin Harrison Hobo in Carmine Red looks great for the holiday season. The gold accents makes it a perfect accessory. The bag is deep, and it holds plenty.

The Brahmin Ady Wallet also in Carmine Red compliments the hobo above perfectly. It's a fold over with a clip underneath, which makes carrying everything look very neat. 

This Philip Stein 36mm Sterling Silver case with the red patent strap is a winner. As you know these watches are made with a natural frequency technology that helps to create balance, wearing the watch will help keep you relaxed and focused. To accent this watch I wear these two sterling silver diamond bangles from zales. I love the way they look with the watch.

These red Tory Burch heart earrings are fabulous as a small red accent anytime of year, but I wear them mostly around fthe holidays since the tone of the red matches well with many of my accents, I love them, they are very comfortable to wear.

Here are some red accessories that I like to wear during the holidays. There are not new, but they are classic pieces in my closet that looks great over the holidays.

Happy Holidays

A Hint of Pink.......

What do we normally do on Thanksgiving Eve? Worry about hanging with the family tomorrow, or what we are going to cook. Tomorrow is Turkey Day, and America will celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends. I look forward to spending quality time with my husband and kids, they are growing up very fast and I want to capture every moment with them. I am very thankful to have them, and they mean the world to me. I hope everyone appreciate the blessings they have this holiday season. I know what I am thankful for, do you?

For the Love of Navy Blue......

I hope everyone is off to  a great week, mine happens to be a busy one. With the holidays rapidly approaching I can't wait to get a little R & R.  This comfy dress is on repeat this fall because of how easy it is to wear. I purchased it from Lands' End, and it is a great investment. I selected to pair it with a navy sweater from Loft, it has a little sparkle to it, that's not quite visible in the photo. These jacks go perfect as we are still getting 80 degree weather here in Florida. I hope everyone have a great week, stay focused and stay blessed.

Comfy Cashmere

This comfy lightweight cashmere tunic was purchased at the end of season sale last year from Nordstroms. This is my first time wearing it and it is comfy, but I think it would work very well for long plane rides better. The jeans are Michael Kors skinnies and my ankle boots I purchase from C. Wonder before they officially close their doors last year. My hand bag is Rebecca Minkoff, a score from her xmas sale. The long necklace is a Brighton piece, as always thanks for reading and have  a great evening.
