CC this Gift Guide to Everyone

Chanel is always a good idea so every husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, son, daughter should take note of this gift guide, because who wouldn't like to find a little Chanel under the tree?

Most of you already know that I am a huge fan of The Real Real. Designer items are such a fortune, shopping with The Real Real makes designer items accessible without breaking the bank. I also love to scour The Real Real for vintage pieces or pieces that are out of stock or cool pieces from seasons past. My advise for first time shoppers is to read the description and look are all the pictures closely to look for any imperfection, often times items are final sale so educate yourself before you head to check out.
I know some of you are squeamish about buying things that are pre-owned, but honestly so many of these items have been barely used, and everything is authenticated so you don't have to be nervous about buying counterfeit items, I've personally had such luck with The Real Real

Cold Weather Style Steals

This Acne Studios jacket has been all over social media for the last few years, and while yes it's cool, and yes shearling is a huge trend this season, this jacket will set you back a cool $2700!

I'm not ashamed to admit that $2700 is too rich for my blood, so you know me, I set out to find a much less pricey alternative, my first stop was H&M, bingo there it was, an equally cool yet affordable version for just $129!

                            $2700                                                                               $129                                                      

Not only did I find that steal of a moto jacket I also came upon so many cool cold weather styles and they are all UNDER $80

I am completely obsessed with this camo puffer, and that cozy biker jacket, I mean seriously how cute!

Not too long ago it was considered a faux pas to be spotted sporting your workout clothes all day, but today the Athleisure trend is one of the fastest growing markets in the clothing industry. The term Athleisure has even won a spot in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, and is defined as "casual clothing meant to be worn both for exercising and for general use". I for one tend to reach for a comfy chic pair of leggings and a cool pair of sneaks many times before reaching for a pair of jeans, but these chic leggings could run you as much as a pair of good pair of denim.
It seems like every It girl has been seen sporting a pair of Ultracor leggings on Instagram, and as much as I have been pining for this pair, these It girl leggings come at a hefty price starting at a whopping $185! For those of us who can't go dropping $185 on leggings, Target has your back with their new line of activewear Joylab. Joylab has all of the cool new styles with an even cooler price starting at $14.99 for a sports bra to $44.99 for this cool moto jacket and offers sizes up to 4x! Bravo Target bravo!

Effortless Everyday Style

When I say Effortless Everyday Style this is exactly what I mean

I may say things like that over and over again, but each piece is Effortless on it's own, and will lend themselves to a multitude of different styling options

This shredded sweater is a live in item for me, and only 4 left so grab it before it's gone
These Nili Lotan pants are a tad pricey, but I can practically guarantee they will be something you wear over and over again
This Levi's sherpa trucker jacket will be a total go to this season for me, I hate bulky winter jackets, check out this one too, and it's on sale!!
I am on the hunt for a cool new or vintage backpack and this one from Chanel is a top contender, I also love this one 
I just ordered these sunglasses, I love the modern rounded shape and I love a green lense
Ok, I am obsessed with these Hunter boots, perfect for trudging around in that messy winter wet weather, obsessed!!

What is your idea of Effortless Style?

Thursday, October 5, 2017


I'm not really sure where the summer went but somehow the school year is in full swing and us Moms are right back into throws of school year Momming.

Momming (verb)
-the act of running around in circles
-finding water shoes at 8pm the night before a field trip
-pulling into school parking lot on 2 wheels to make it to school on time/game/concert/back to school night
-making 8 lbs of pasta for team pasta party

Look it's all good, we all do it, we are lucky to do it, and you know what we're good at it, even on those days when we feel like we fail.
Here's the shallow part..
It's not always easy to look good doing all of these things, most of the time our days or mine at least go from gym, to Target, to the supermarket, home to do laundry, empty that dishwasher that is somehow always full, take a 2 minute shower, throw G-d knows what on and run to that game
Ok ok I know land the plane...

On those days when I am running to where ever I will be slipping my feet into these cozies, my new go to's, which btw the Husband will hate!
Who What Wear called it and I knew I would cave

Sweater: H&M (I'm having a moment with fair isle sweaters):Jeans:Zara: Sunglasses:Ray Ban: Perfume: Replica Beach Walk (obsessed with this fragrance): Birkenstocks:Boston Shearling, love these and these
