J. Crew Lace Separates

J.Crew Lace Pencil SkirtFirst and foremost, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your comments, messages, texts and emails on last week’s post. My family and I greatly appreciate your continued love and support. We tackled a lot of firsts this long weekend, and while there is still plenty to be thankful for, it was certainly a draining weekend. We were grateful for our time with family but also our quiet time at home. We decorated our family tree on Sunday and added all of our favorite ornaments that Kevin had collected and gifted over the years.

Fold Over Clutch / J.Crew Factory Earrings (these would make a perfect stocking stuffer!) / MAC Lipstick (Dark Side)

I had every intention of telling you about how almost all of these items are on sale (both for Black Friday and Cyber Monday), but here we are, the Tuesday after all of the sales. So now I’m just going to talk to you about how I’ve been stocking up on pieces to mix and match for all of our different events this holiday season. Since I tend to gravitate towards neutrals, I look for different patterns and textures to add to my wardrobe. Lace is one of my favorites, especially for the holidays.

I dressed this peplum top down for Thanksgiving with my favorite pair of denim. It’s one of those pieces where you instantly feel more polished when you throw it on, which I love. I bought the lace pants from J.Crew last year (shop the J.Crew Factory version here) and have gotten a lot of wear out of them so when I saw the top and skirt version, I couldn’t resist. This combination is definitely a contender for our work holiday party this year paired with some statement jewelry and a sequin blazer. I also can’t wait to wear the skirt with a plaid button up.

  • This sweet little handprint ornament made me go 😍 every time I passed it on our tree this year. We went to @glazepottery in Thiensville to make it, and I may have already told Bill what I want for Mother’s Day since I definitely teared up when I saw it there (motherhood is emotional haha) - a mug with two handprints with the saying “These hands hold my heart” in the middle. Wink, wink, nod, nod @williamritt just in case you forgot.
  • This video clip from our first dance has been in my Instagram ‘Drafts’ since our anniversary in September (better late than never?). This January marks 10 years together and these last few months have been some of the most incredible yet. Watching you become a dad makes me so grateful that Ainsley and I are both yours ❤️ love you, @williamritt! And we’re forever grateful for @russelled and @kaileydickerson’s incredible surprise.
  • We’re keeping things festive over here for the next week 🎄 This is the tree that my mom would put up in my room as a little girl. It was pretty special to put Ainsley’s first ornaments on it this year.
  • Merry Christmas ❤️ The Ritts
  • I love how you can see the cardinal ornament so well in this photo. A cardinal is one of our signs from our mom (along with Ainsley flicking us off 🖕🏼😂). And little Kevy’s angel ornament is also right at the top. My mom loved ornaments (she got one every time we traveled) and traditional Christmas decorations so this setup along with all of our family photos makes my heart pretty full ❤️
