Denim x 2

Each week Style Collective posts a style challenge and as you guessed it, this week was denim on denim.  I paired my favorite distressed Old Navy Skinny Jeans with this Lacoste chambray top & my olive faux suede ankle booties, also from Old Navy.

After working for Lacoste for nearly 5 years I’ve accumulated quite the collection of button up tops & polo shirts.  Though I hardly wear them anymore, I love to bring this one out of storage every once in a while.  It also looks great paired with black leggings & knee-high Hunter boots or a white cotton midi skirt & wedge sandals.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  Can you believe it’s 2018 already?!  This year, like the last few, we celebrated at home with friends & family.  Now that we have little man it’s so much easier to have people over than to worry about hiring a babysitter & going out. Plus, I love to host so it’s a win-win!

In the years past we’ve hosed a fondue party, but since little and his friends were joining in on the fun I thought a big spread of homemade apps & finger foods would be best.  While the adults enjoyed chocolate martinis & mixed drinks, the kiddos sipped on Shirley Temples with bendy straws & cherry garnishes. I set up a photo backdrop in the basement with props and we even did an early ball drop at 9 PM for the kids.

For my outfit, I decided to wear a lace romper that I had picked up at Target for only $27.99 and statement earrings from Walmart for $3.  Side note, I’ve never been one to shop jewelry at Walmart but I couldn’t pass up $3 earrings that were super cute!  The cut-out back & lightweight sleeves on the romper made hosting a breeze.  I was cool & comfortable while cooking in the kitchen, refilling drinks & chasing the kids around.

Below I’ve also featured two of my go-to essentials – a belted trench coat & a wristlet clutch.  These wardrobe must-haves transition nicely from season to season & never go out of style.  I picked up this trench from H&M a few seasons ago, but I’ve included links to similar to styles that are not only super chic but affordable as well.
