Fall & Winter Fashion Faves

As the weather cools down I thought I’d share my favorite Fall and Winter Outfits.  As a busy mom of two and teacher I need to be comfortable.  Another key is that the staples I pick up this season need to be able to go from Day to Night for when I attend events.  I love being able to throw on a pair of heels, some chunky jewelry and feel instantly ready- completely key when time is of the essence.

Love mixing and matching some favorite pieces!  A new favorite is a pair of plush velvet pants that are my favorite color… purple.  I love what I love and am enjoying the weather finally cooling off in the Valley of the Sun.

What fashion trend are you loving this Fall?

Would love to hear from you.

To wear a choker or to not wear a choker?!?  That is the REAL question right now.

Holiday Dress Style- Long-Sleeve Number

As the holidays rapidly approach and my to-do list becomes packed with shopping for the family, baking, and attending those notable soirees  I like to be prepared.  As a busy mother and teacher, shopping for myself is never on the top of the list, nor is it a priority.  Finding styles that can work throughout the busy holiday season is a MUST.  Can’t wait to style this fabulous White House Black Market number for holiday parties, Christmas, and of course work events.


Holiday Dress Style

After taking a little bit of my lunch hour last week I scoured some of my favorite sites for ideas on a dress that could be worn the entire season.  A BUNCH of favorites were found at my local White House Black Market.


Black Lace Sheath Dress

The Black Lace Sheath Dress is double layered and incredibly comfortable.  I loved how the lines helped accentuate my shape and the fact that while worn at a cooler evening event that the long sleeve dress kept me warm. For size reference- I am 5’7”, 120lbs and wearing a 2.  Love the length and fit.  Dress fit true to size.white-house-black-market-dress

I wore the dress to a dinner event for work with closed toe pumps and simple gold jewelry.  For different occasions I plan on wearing my strappy, black heels, chunky jewelry, and my hair up.  The fabulous women working when I tried on the dresses at White House Black Market mentioned wearing a red heel with the dress and I think that might just have to happen this holiday season.


Grab this dress while you can- the sizes are being sold out– and goodness is it the perfect dress for the season.

Can’t wait to share some of my other favorite dress styles later this week.  Loved this number from Elizabeth James– definitely one of my favorite designers.
