After Christmas Comfort with Christopher and Banks

This post is sponsored by Christopher and Banks.  Oh hello there! Yes, you! The one who is stressed to the max after running all around for days (or even weeks for some of you) getting ready for Christmas! The one who’s kids are driving you bonkers over break! I’m here to talk about being comfortable after Christmas and give you some ideas of things you can do to relax!  I’m wearing a couple of super comfortable looks from  Christopher and Banks  in this post. These are from the  Activewear Relaxed, Restyled collection .  The first look is this sherpa collar knit  cardigan  and relaxed straight leg  pants .  I just put a plain tee shirt underneath but you can totally change the look based on what you like!  You can shop the cardigan  here .  You can shop the pants  here .  Looks like I need to do some relaxing of my own!  Here are some fun ideas for you to take some time and relax in comfort - with or without the kids!  1. Phone a friend and have a real conversation. Laugh and catch up

Sunday Style: Girl in a Coffee Shop

What do you get when you take a girl who loves coffee into a coffee shop for a photo shoot? You get a girl who’s smiling and laughing but on the inside really wants to drink that coffee.... I had a chance to meet up with a new photographer friend over the past week and I am thrilled with the outcome! I hope you are too!  It’s fun to meet up with a friend over coffee- one of my favorite things to do! I love the aroma of the coffee beans in the air and the click clacking of keys on the keyboard and the cute little babies with their mothers who are on a jaunt out while on maternity leave.  We met at Madcap Coffee in Grand Rapids and shot a few looks this time. I wanted to show off this beautiful dress from  Maree Pour Toi  that could be a holiday look or just a dressier look to wear to a party or to a wedding. I paired my pink glitter booties with it for some color- cuz you all know I love my color!- and also a little pink clutch to match. I think pink isn’t a spring color but a color tha

Sunday Style: Snow Queen

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! I’ve been waiting for snow just so I could photograph this outfit! We finally got some this past week so I took a bit of time to capture my Winter Whites. Everything in this look is from Jessica London and I love how it all came together! I’d check the site often because lots of times they run sales for 50% off or even more! I will also link it all for you so you can shop it if you love any (or all!) of the pieces!  There isn’t any big story behind this look today other than I love all of the cream/winter whites and I knew as soon as I planned this look that it had to be photographed in front of this beautiful red building.  I also feel amazing wearing fur- just saying! It’s so luxurious- even if it is faux! This cape is so fun and underneath it is a gorgeous sweater dress. I paired taupe boots with it and I also added some cream gloves. This was one of the coldest days of the year so no pictures of me in just the dress.  Here’s some pics of this look:  So her

SHEIN Black Friday Sale!

Happy Friday!! Today is going to be a day with so many steals and deals but I wanted to be sure that you saw some amazing things from  SHEIN !  SHEIN   adds about 500 new pieces each day to their inventory and has so many styles to choose from! This is perfect for when you want some trendy new pieces at a lower price!  I wanted to show you all a few dresses that I picked up for the holidays!  Let’s start with this fun black  dress  that has such a fun texture! I paired this  dress  with some black glitter booties but I’d also dress it up with some sandals and a fun clutch!  How about velvet?? I got these two dresses that are so different but both in beautiful pastel shades of velvet!  This first  dress  is a beautiful shade of lavender and has pleats all over the bottom which is so hot this season! The twist on the front is such a nice touch as well! I paired this  dress  with silver booties but again I would also do it with a pair of sandals and a cute clutch and statement earrings. 

Sunday Style: November Stylogic Box

Happy Sunday! This weekend has been nice and relaxing and I’ve gotten a lot done! I got a new box from  Stylogic  and I unboxed it over on my Instagram stories earlier last week. I wanted to show off the pieces that I received and how I styled them so here goes!  Have you heard of  Stylogic ? It’s a subscription box company that sends five pieces to you at a time. They try to give you full outfits which is nice too! This is the second box that I have received from  Stylogic  and I requested some fun pieces for the holidays.  I was sent two sweaters, a pair of pants, a pair of denim and a pair of shoes. I don’t usually wear a lot of pants but I ended up liking all of the pieces I was sent!  This first outfit is a black sequin sweater and a pair of denim. The denim is so soft and fits me well! I love the sweater too as it’s comfortable and casual yet can be worn for brunch or shopping or wherever! I paired these with my leopard booties but you could really wear any shoe that you wanted!
