Gone to the Dogs

This is not the first time Cupcake, my puggle, has crashed a flatlay shoot.  She once moved a cashmere sweater up on to the bed for a luxurious nap.  She was very intrigued with this particular shoot and perhaps a bit jealous of the sequined terrier.  This t-shirt is a great way to add a little casual holiday sparkle.  She also may have wanted to add a touch of leopard to the look.  Cupcake (CC) has been switching between her leopard bandana and a plaid one.

I styled the t-shirt with black denim, a navy pouch and plaid shoes (it may be time to admit I have a plaid shoe addiction).  These shoes had been sold out and I recently found them in my size.  I will link a couple of similar options below as inventory seems to change daily.

Holiday Pattern Mix

My plaid shoes get a workout from November through January and even make appearances year round.  This year I have loved mixing them with camo.  This clutch has been my most reached for bag as I head out the door and I have paired it with everything.  I am even considering a second one with this sparkly stripe. My camo jacket that I featured here has been a fun way to mix with plaid along with my faux fur leopard coat (a bargain from Gap).

Mad for Plaid

I am all in when it comes to plaid.  I love the the tuxedo details on this blazer and could not resist matching my heels.  I kept it high/low with my new favorite vintage straight denim.  If you have been frustrated with distressed holes that continue to grow, these are for you.  They are patched underneath.

I updated my makeup with a few products by Chanel.  Including: a neutral eye shadow palette (Les Beiges) that I am already using more colors than the beige (they made the lightest color twice as large as the other colors – brilliant!).  I am also wearing the mimosa light creating base, blush (elegance)brow pencil (blond dore), eyeliner (feuilles) , volume mascara (black), lip liner (nude) and a new color (light rose) of my favorite long-wearing lip color.

A Few of My Favorite Things…

Plaid, leopard, stripes and camo are a few of my favorite things.  I usually have at least two of them represented.  These plaid shoes have potential to wear well after the holidays.  I styled them with this adorable leopard tee (with a navy collar), denim, cashmere cardigan and custom pouch.

These plaid, leopard and tortoise home accents are perfect for the holidays and beyond.

The Countdown

December is here!  Did you know the number of advent Sundays until Christmas seems shorter this year?  The fourth one is on Christmas Eve.  So the countdown of shopping days is on.  Hanukkah is only 11 days away!  I am excited to break out our advent calendars tonight (Hot Wheels and Lego).  I may treat myself this one or this one.

Plaid is part of just about every one of my outfits these days.  For this look I styled my plaid shoes from last year (these and these would also look great) with this pink tee, denim and the coziest sweater.  I think this striped bag would complete the casual look perfectly .  I hope Santa follows my blog.

A Touch of Plaid

It is no secret that I am mad for plaid.  My collection of plaid shoes is growing and I had to have these heels.  I styled them with my lace pants from last year that are available this year (I may add the red version to the mix) and my velvet blazer, white t-shirt and a tartan pouch (also available in this smaller size).  This scarf is a great way to add a pop of plaid and if you are not into heels these flats are so easy to wear with everything!

I am adding this adorable eye mask to my gifts for a touch of tartan and this umbrella makes a great gift. On my list are these PJs.  My family has been fighting over this cozy plaid throw, so I ordered two more.

Plaid Between the Lines

Plaid shoes really do go with everything.  I wore plaid shoes from a few years ago with a striped shirt and jeans to go see Santa in 80 degrees last weekend.  My current dilemma is how many is too many? I have been collecting at least one pair a year for the last few years and I get a lot of wear out of them for several months a year.  This year there are several pairs I am considering including this pair with a blue velvet ankle strap (below and 40% off!), this fun pair and this pair of heels (also 40% off).

These booties are fun too.

Casual Plaid

I am preparing for the holiday with a casual plaid ensemble.  I just got these plaid sneakers in the mail and it was a great mail day!  They are selling fast, so don’t miss out.  I styled them with a plaid shirt, pom-pom sweatshirt, denim and a custom clutch (which makes a great gift under $100).  Check back on Friday for more of my plaid shoe picks.

Rainbow Smiles

There is a lot to be happy about.  It is almost Thanksgiving vacation.  We have family visiting for the holiday.  We are having another heatwave (which I have decided to enjoy instead of being annoyed).  So today I am “Up Beat” and rainbows.  Why not?

I styled this “Up Beat” t-shirt with a velvet blazer, denim, tweed flats and a tropical clutch.

Camo and Monograms

My go with everything leopard clutch needs a rest once in awhile.  Meet my new neutral clutch in camo from Parker Thatch.  It has already been on steady repeat in less than a week. I styled it with a Liberty print shirt, denim and my orange driving shoes. I also love the clutch in this navy striped version.

The mimi tote from Parker Thatch in camo is definitely on my list.  I just need to decide which way to personalize it (white large letters, HAPPY or letters with kiss.) The totes and clutches are made in California and are so fun to customize.

Also on my list from Parker Thatch are a monogrammed sweatshirt in gray or white and a striped shirt.  Santa, I hope you are reading this.
