I love any excuse to dress up and holiday parties are the perfect event to go all out! These looks are perfect for Christmas Parties or a fun New Year’s Eve bash! I wore this to my husband’s work party at the Tree Room in Sundance and felt fab!

I decided not to do Christmas cards this year since we were gone for 10 days in New Zealand.

So if you don’t get one from us, please know it’s not because we don’t like you, it’s because we are trying to SIMPLIFY.

It snowed this week so I busted out my beanie and Savannah put on her hoodie.

We wish the snow would stick just a little longer.

I’m already listening to Christmas music to get me in the winter mood!

“As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral.” -Jenna Lyons

My daughter and I wear leopard on a regular basis.

In fact, on Sunday, I wore a leopard top and my girl wore a leopard dress to Church without meaning to match.

My daughter wasn’t so happy about us “twinning” at Church-LOL!
