My Winter Style

Happy Holiday friends! I can’t believe we are down to just a couple more days until Christmas! I have been running around from shop to shop and school to school living that crazy mom life during the holidays! Anyone else feel like they are going a little crazy? So many times I stop and think about how Christmas seemed so magical as a little girl. I now know that a lot of that has to do with all the hard work my parents put into making Christmas special. And my struggle is due to the part that my husband and I are in the retail/customer business + everything is so commercialized. It now feels exhausting. I’m not sure. Either way, I have been quite busy running errands for the family, with the family, and working on some exciting projects with both local + national companies. And I love it!

So the other day I was kind of laughing at myself because as I went into my closet to grab something to wear for the day, I noticed I had some serious color preferences going on. Have you ever noticed that before? Like over the summer I realized I had a LOT of stripes, mainly black + white stripes with some denim scattered in there. So apparently this winter my go-to colors are Black, a wine red, and white. Red should always be a staple in your wardrobe during the winter. Just FYI.

So I thought I would share with you some of my recent winter #ootd ‘s with these colors to give you a little look inside my current wardrobe! Enjoy!
