  2. 22 Month Toddler: Chilly Days

    Reese in Old Navy November style

    This Holiday season we are doing quite a bit of traveling starting with a week in Nashville to celebrate Thanksgiving. Because we only visit every few months, my mother-in-law always schedules a jam-packed week of visiting with every friend or relative in the city so she can show off the little ones. Knowing this is the agenda, I always want to make sure the babes look dolled up each day of the trip. In preparation, I picked up a couple of adorable Fall baby essentials to pack, like this Old Navy Tunic Sweater and Sherling Vest {other cute baby vest options since this…

    Winter Wine Cheese Pairing Uproot Wine

    There’s nothing better than cozying in on your couch on a cold winter night with friends, great wine and a complimentary selection of cheeses.

Rich and complex flavors make it the perfect wine to drink fireside,…

In the warmer months my go-to is a sleeveless or strappy tank, maybe layered with a leather jacket, but with the recent freezing cold temperatures, if I go sleeveless I am seriously frozen. As a result I have been on the hunt for tops that are flattering but warm. So I found the perfect marriage of these requirements when I came across this cowl neck chunky knitsweater from Chicos. The neckline is incredibly flattering versus a regular turtleneck and being knit, makes it so cozy. To offset the…

  5. DIY Hostess Gift

    DIY CHRISTMAS GIFT by Fashionable Hostess

    I was brainstorming the perfect hostess gift to bring with me for Thanksgiving and the checklist in my head was never-ending… something that could travel without getting damaged, something that wasn’t liquid, something that wasn’t perishable, something that didn’t take up too much space in my suitcase… quite a list of prerequisites! I actually saw the idea to make a “cookie mix in a jar” a while back on my Pinterest but it wasn’t until I was browsing the grocery last weekend and saw an aisle full of festive sprinkles, that it occurred to me that this would be the perfect DIY…
