I was feeling a bit festive. No, I am not referring to the fact that I am dressed like the cranberries, that came out of a can that my ma served, I am talkin about my holiday pants! You heard me! My holiday pants! These pants (that are borderline drop-crotch) only come out on special days. So far that has meant Easter and Thanksgiving. If they are lucky I may wear them for Martin Luther King day, too! It seems I have no other need for them, since after 9 months of owning these had-to-have-it-so-I-splurged-because-I-was-in-NYC-and-that's-what-you-do-pants I have worn them, YEP, those 2 whopping times! I am certain that I will get my use out of them after 20 years of owning them  now that I have introduced them to my fur stole. So, I guess, I am thankful that I may like these pleated khakis (that give me hips) after all!

It's been a rainy week so I decided to do shorts with leggings so that I can actually wear my favorite knit shorts. Such a great way to wear shorts through fall and winter. My favorite fall purchase so far has been my vegan leather Free People jacket - I wear it almost every day!

Good grief it snowed and I am not wearing Uggs. GASP! I know, I know I do like Uggs but man alive they were out in full force this weekend... me I opted for my fur instead. Uggs and fur do not look right, that just makes me look like the abominable snowman, and, well, no one should have to see that!

 One of my favorite color combos lately. I know it was big early this fall, but I was a little late joining in. So clean and simple and most of us have pieces in our closet these colors! This is one of the Stylemint shirts that I bought with my winnings. It is the Prince T. It is the perfect basic tee and is super comfy. You know I love a pair good flares and these are so lightweight it should be a sin. I love denim that feels like jammies!!

 I have a benefit to attend this Sunday, and it is a fun family friendly Hoe Down theme. I am not much for cowboy boots but I am really starting to wish that I had a pair all of a sudden. Everyone seems to automatically go for plaids so I am thinking something a little different! If you guys have any suggestions  I would love to hear them!

The result of a windy weekend. Sadly the background colors won't be sticking around for very long. Little man didn't want to stick around for too long once he saw the play set off in the distance. He was certainly glad to escape my grasp and head over to the swings. Thankfully it wasn't crowded due to the chilly temperatures, I always have more fun with my kids when other people aren't around, I think it is because I am not busy hoovering (Yeah I am on of THOSE moms...)

I am  loving cropped jackets and right now. If they have lace or sequins forget it I am sold immediately. This one I have had in my closet for a long time and it took me a few months to work it into my daily outfits and now it is an easy grab. 

The striped are still seeping their way into my wardrobe and this one is such a steal from STYLEMINT you can find it here. I love how soft it is and they are such a great fit! I love when shirts are easy to piece together and you don't have to think much about it.

 Elizabeth used to work in downtown Wayzata so it was a must that we make it out there one day. We actually go there often because we love how peaceful it is. Most people would think that we went for the shopping (which we did manage to squeeze in), but mostly we went for the lake. You may not know it but these little kids rule our lives and they love to run and play! It is no wonder that our posts are few and far between! It was great fun. Liz's son Jude was in a trance as if he had never played with sand before haha. And my boys took to their normal routine of throwing rocks into the water. We ended up just having a super chill day and we all went home happy despite the fact that we bought nothing. We tried to get a photo of us all but it was no use trying to coral everyone when they were perfectly content where they were... seeing this I sure regret not having that photo of everyone together :(

We really loved being in the same city we are just the kind of friends that don't take anything too serious, and laugh at pretty much anything (which is mostly Shaynah being a dork and Liz calling her out on it.) We are always drooling over magazine editorials together and it is funny that we both like the same things but have a different take on what part we find interesting. I guess you can see that in the way our styles work together.
This particular day was inspired by our love for Minnetonka Moccasins and Free People lookbooks and our OBSESSION (including intense google searches) of MK&A Olsen and their wonderful world of layers and oversized sweaters and eccentric beauty.

 We don't usually go too crazy when it comes to patterns. We like things that are realistic (and things that layer easily, DUH!) Stripes and plaids are an easy fit into your wardrobe. Of course we love our good share of layering, but we tend to go for things that aren't fussy and that are realistic for chasing after a toddler. Another bonus to these subtle patterns is that people don't usually notice if you over-wear them which makes them great for many outfits.
