Dressed in Black - Two outfits

Simply said, black is the easiest go-to for any outfit, but I like to do black with a side a bling. My sister knows me all too well and got me this gorgeous cold shoulder embellished sweater in the first photo for Christmas.  The second outfit, my sequin cape, is one of my favorite items I designed and currently on sale at T&J Designs!

Classic Stripe Style

A classic stripe on a cozy wide neck sweater is a great staple for your closet.  And for less than $50, it is a must have!  It is only available for preorder here and you have to order it this week as the quantities are limited.  

It has been cold, really cold here so pretty much all I wear is sweaters, a pair of great denim and a fantastic coat.

Loving Ourselves in 2017 (with a side of style)

2016 was not the best year for me (and it sounds like for many) but great things did happen.  I chose not to do a blog recap . . . honestly I was not motivated to do one and when I don't feel inspired I've learned to let myself take a break.  And I took a good holiday break just spending time with my two boys and my family.  

I'm a planner, a lover of going out and dressing up, a passionate friend and partner and I love connecting with friends.  I met up with some old friends while back at home and boy was it a great reunion.  It was hours of conversation and catching up and being real about life, being a wife, mom, friend and a woman in the world today. It made me realize how hard women are on each other and why do we settle on speaking about ourselves in such a negative manner?

Sweater Star Cape

Hope you had a great holiday!  I'm currently still with my family and the kids, so the whirlwind of the holidays is still on (but I love it).  Family time is the best time.

I'm a pink girl and when I saw this sweater cape I had to have it.
