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.

  • It turns out Ainsley does not like to walk on the grass barefoot but does love the splash pad. Also, I think she aged another year this weekend 😭
  • Filling my feed with things that make my heart happy these days - these shelves are high on the list. In college and just after, I tried way too hard to follow trends. I’ve now fully embraced more sentimental pieces and love to mix and match old and new. Thankful that getting older has made me appreciate the little things even more.
  • Anyone else feel like they’ve lived two days all before 9 a.m.? We’ve watched two Toy Stories and have Secret Life of Pets 2 ready to watch, I put my chai in the microwave but never heated it up, we did a treasure hunt and had a very messy incident that involved Ainsley letting me know there was 💩 on the family room floor. My computer is in front of me in bed because breathing is getting harder at 35 weeks and this is all that’s comfortable right now. I’m sure my work calls are going to go very well this morning. Sending you all a virtual cheers and choosing to laugh off the crazy and be grateful for this healthy (but tired) family of mine 😘☕️ #honestmotherhood
  • Baby brother’s room progress is brightening up this rainy morning. I can’t wait to tell him I hung up the pictures myself 😉 And while the bookshelf is a work in progress, I’ve loved adding some of Uncle Kevy’s old cars and trains in his room. http://liketk.it/2P9ku #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome #LTKbaby #projectnursery #sharetheeverymom #fifthandroseathome
  • It’s 43° in Wisconsin so we went on Spring Break in our kitchen today. http://liketk.it/2OJp8 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #GapLove
