Oh, silly blogging. I took some time this week to look back on a year of blogging. It is definitely a good reminder of what I enjoy about it, and why I created this blog. I have been posting less lately and making sure that I really am doing this for the right reasons. The blogging world is overflowing with talented and amazing people, but it also is filled with a large focus on a materialistic world. In a time that every hashtag is added with hopes of more followers, and your instagram feed is stuffed with staged photos, sometimes you need to take a step back. So, I will still be blogging, but just refreshing myself and making sure you know that everything I post is truly about who I am.
My favorite way to keep warm is by layering up, but when your outfit is a full sweater- that's pretty much all you need. I'm fairly certain these pants were meant to be pajama bottoms, but they were too cute not to wear all day.
Bundled up in Wool
There is just something about the Holidays that gets me in the mood for plaids and prints that remind me of a cabin getaway. Brands like Woolrich, Pendleton, and Faribault nail it in this category. Cozy buffalo plaids and rich wool fabrics make them the perfect combo of all things winter. I am drooling over this Faribault blanket at cb2 (yes, we are adding that to our wedding registry). Another plus for these companies is the Made in USA factor. I love that the fact that Faribault, MN is just around the corner.

I have no idea how it happened that Christmas is around the corner. It has been unseasonably warm out so I'm holding out on extra layers where I can. Is everyone done with their Holiday shopping? Picking up anything extra for yourself? Retailers are counting on it :)

With the holidays around the corner, I definitely feel more inspired to wear sparkles and glam up my look a bit. I bought this shirt at J.Crew last year and have gotten a lot of wear out of it. I thought I would make it a bit more casual and work friendly by adding a button down underneath. I found this shirt at Nordstrom Rack this week (that tends to happen while shopping for others at the Holidays) and loved that it can be dressed up, yet is as comfy as a sweatshirt. I think longer skirts like this look best paired with heels so your legs do not shorten up too much.
