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.

  • Three years without our Kev. Remembering him today and every day 💙
  • So happy to be reunited with my people after traveling for work all week ❤️
  • I feel like a bit of a broken record these days but healing takes time and healing a broken heart while trying to keep it together for your family is hard. My mom was my best friend, and while I like to think I knew how good I had it while she was alive, there are just so many more things I’d want to thank her for, especially with my new lens as a mom to Ainsley. I can’t imagine going through chemo and still trying to take care of her grown kids the way she did. I can’t imagine getting the call that no parent ever wants to receive finding out your son passed away, and then going on to keep fighting cancer for another year and a half. All while still making me breakfast on the weekend and running errands for me during the week, helping me plan our wedding (literally don’t know what I would’ve done without her and my sister), taking every phone call from me as I was navigating new jobs, visiting house after house as Bill and I tried to find our first home and so, so much more that will never fit into an Instagram caption. I see so much of my mom’s determination and stubbornness in Ainsley, and I can’t wait to see more of her as she continues to grow up. I am forever grateful to be her mom — it’s the best ‘title’ I’ll ever have. And while, I’m grateful to have had my mom for as long as I did, it still feels way too short. Today was filled with lots of giggles and snuggles but also lots of tears as I celebrate my first Mother’s Day with Ainsley and my second without my mom. I’m trying to be better about letting myself have the bad days and giving myself more grace. So I’m calling it a night and watching Bad Moms while eating ice cream in bed. Sending lots of love if you’re having a hard day and a virtual cheers with my pint of ice cream ❤️

  • When you’re on duty to supervise the sleeping baby, but you’re also on vacation so you have a margarita with lunch. I’ve been living in this jumpsuit all week. I bought it in two colors, and it’s been great to wear to the pool but also for play time with Ainsley. Plus, it came in petite and has pockets 🙌🏼 http://liketk.it/2Bftk #liketkit @liketoknow.it
