What To Wear To A School Holiday Party

We’re back with 12 Days of Holiday Outfits! Today, it’s What To Wear To A School Holiday Party.

12 Days Of Holiday Outfits and More!

This ones a little sad for me because I don’t have children in school. Both of my children are grown and long gone are the school parties. Oh do I miss those days!

Of course at the time, I was complaining about trying to get all the goodies baked and buying teacher gifts, and feeling overwhelmed. Now, I wish I could do it again!

Maybe I could just pop in at someone’s school christmas party. Would that be awkward? I can see it now, pastor’s wife arrested for stalking school christmas parties. Ha!

Well, if I’ve learned one thing, it’s treasure each season you’re in because life goes by very quickly. 

I recently saw a picture on Pinterest with a red vest, off white sweater and striped top so I decided to give it a try.

I love my striped shirt from LOFT and went ahead and styled it a couple of other ways.

Lastly, I added my plaid scarf from Target. You can’t see it in these pictures but it’s drizzling rain and it’s cold and I’m freezing! I’m going in and sit by the fire and drink a cup of hot chocolate!

All three ways are comfortable and would work for a school christmas party.

 

Which of the 3 ways to style a striped shirt is your favorite?

Beauty For the Heart~~I worry about children today. The world is such a harsh place. I worry about children who are bullied. Schools are not fun places for many children today. Sometimes I pray for them all. I don’t know their names but God does.

This scripture has always fascinated me. I don’t pray to angels. I don’t think that’s biblical but I do pray for protection over children and scripture does seem to say that their are angels guarding them.

Matthew 18:10 says, Be sure you do not hate one of these little children. I tell you, they have angels who are always looking into the face of My Father in heaven.

I do know this for sure, children are precious in His sight!

Have a blessed day!

Herringbone Vest and A 3D Mascara Giveaway!

I’m not sure if you all have seen the Herringbone Vest craze on Pinterest. But I’ve seen this vest everywhere!

My herringbone vest came in my Stitch Fix box several months ago. To be honest, I wasn’t that impressed and almost sent it back. For some reason, I kept it and then I started seeing it everywhere.

It’s kind of like when you get a new (or new to you) car and you didn’t notice how many people had that car until you start driving one. That’s how I felt about this vest. :-)

The vest seems popular which my sweet friends at Stitch Fix knew but because I’m so uncool, I didn’t know it. Story of my life!

Anyhoo, I decided to pull it out and style it! I wore it last Saturday all day and I got tons of compliments on it. Umm, I’m going to wear it more often!

Herringbone Vest and A 3D Mascara Giveaway!

I’ve looked for this vest online but they’re sold out everywhere. J Crew Factory had a similar vest but they now only have it in red and black. I think it’s cute too!

Once you get past a certain age (ahem) you really shouldn’t have to take close up pictures but I wanted you to see the difference the 3D mascara makes. This is a picture without any mascara.

This is a picture after I’ve used the 3D mascara. This 3D mascara would make a great stocking stuffer!

Houndstooth-Classic & Timeless

What a weekend!! After three Thanksgiving meals over the last few days, I’m feeling a little stuffed this morning. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving spent with our family.

It’s now time to transition to Christmas so I’ve started decorating. I’m usually finished by now but for some reason, I’m behind this year. Sigh.

It’s no secret, I love classic and timeless pieces, so of course I’m going to add houndstooth to my wardrobe.

Houndstooth-Classic & Timeless
I’ve had this scarf for several years and I love wearing it during the fall and winter months.

The weather was a little mild this weekend so I pulled out my open toes booties from Rack Room Shoes.

What To Wear To A Holiday Brunch

Welcome to our 12 Days of Holiday Outfits! Today it’s What To Wear To A Holiday Brunch.

12 Days Of Holiday Outfits and More!
I absolutely love a holiday brunch. Most brunches that I have attended are just for the ladies and of course the food is always delicious. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it right now!

What To Wear To A Holiday Brunch

The outfits can be casual or dressy but I like to dress up a bit. I love the look of a white collared blouse with a blingy necklace and this one from LOFT is perfect.

Two things I had going on in these pictures, sun popping out, which is why I’m squinting and of course the wind that kept blowing my hair in my face. Fun times!

There is none like Me.” -Beth Moore

Casual Thanksgiving Day Outfit

Happy day before Thanksgiving!! I can’t believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day! Where did November go?

I’m sure you all are super busy but I thought I’d share a Casual Thanksgiving Day Outfit. I love this striped top from LOFT. I can style it so many different ways! (FYI, LOFT has 40% off of everything right now!)

Casual Thanksgiving Day Outfit

I tucked it in and added a leopard print belt but it could easily not  be tucked in and still look good.

My burgundy cords were in one of my Stitch Fix boxes and if you follow my blog, you know I love these pants. They do have the same pair at Nordstroms.

What To Wear On A Holiday Date Night

Welcome to our 12 Days of Holiday Outfits! Today it’s What To Wear On A Holiday Date Night.

I’m partnering with Kristin from BonBon Rose Girls and Jo-Lynne from Jo-Lynne Shane to bring you 12 days of posts about what to wear for EVERY event this holiday season.

12 Days Of Holiday Outfits and More!
 Well this is a fun post. I love date nights and I love to dress up!

I think it’s good to know what your husband likes when you think about what to wear. I know Wayne likes heels better than flats so I will usually wear heels when we go out.

Here’s an outfit I have and plan to wear to the dinner theatre we’re going to be attending in a few weeks.

What To Wear On A Holiday Date Night

I tried this on for Wayne and it was a hit. :-)

I saw this outfit on Pinterest and loved it. It’s a little more casual but would be fun to wear for a holiday date night.

Of course you can’t go wrong with dresses. I purchased both of these a few years ago at Marshall’s. I love dresses!

Beauty for the Heart~~Years ago, Wayne and I read the book, The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. I highly recommend this book to married couples.

We each have a love language and we share our love language with our spouse. But if that’s not their love language they’re aren’t feeling loved.

Wayne’s love language is words of affirmation. You would know that very quickly if you were around him. He tells me he loves me and how beautiful he thinks I am all day long. But that’s not my love language.

My love language is acts of service. So when he empties the dishwasher or folds the laundry I feel loved! And when I tell him I love him and he’s an amazing husband and father, he feels loved.

Anyway, marriage is not easy and we have worked hard to have a good one but it’s worth it!!

Do something extra special for your spouse today. Let them know you love them!!!

Have a blessed day!
