Soft Winter Neutrals

fair isle sweater

Even though we haven’t yet reached the official start of
winter, many of us are already experiencing significant snowfall
& freezing temperatures.  This is the time of year when it can
get a bit gloomy – even though the snow is beautiful, it’s
cloudy almost every day and it gets dark so early now.  I don’t
know about you, but I tend to dress based on how I feel…which
means I end up wearing black more often than not.  So, in an
effort to help myself avoid this inevitable rut, I’m embracing
the softer side of winter today in light neutrals that are so
pretty they might even lift your spirits a little (regardless of
how it looks outside!).

Everything I’m wearing here is on sale because Macy’s just launched their
Friends & Family Event, where you’ll get 30% off select
styles with code FRIEND through December 10th! 
These are, without a doubt, the best prices of the season, because
it includes brands that rarely go on sale.  As most of you know,
I’ve been partnering with Macy’s on a regular basis for
the last several months and I’m always amazed by the breadth of
their product selections.  I never have a hard time finding pieces
that I love – in fact, it’s usually the opposite…it’s a
struggle to narrow down my choices!

And, rest assured, I don’t just share these sales with you –
I shop them too!  Items currently in my cart: this bobble-stitch cardigan,
these corduroy jeans (in
cabernet), these
cashmere-lined leather tech gloves
(great gift idea!) &
I’m also ordering another one of these blankets for a friend
because she fell in love with mine – it’s seriously the
softest, warmest throw…we fight over it in our house!

What’s exciting about this sale is that they’re also
offering 15% off beauty purchases, which makes this a great time to
stock up on products you regularly use (or buy gifts for the beauty
lover in your family!).  A few of my favorites that I use daily:
this CC cream (I wear
Light), this volumizing
(travel size here), this highlighting concealer (I
use Radiant Light) & this
eyeshadow palette
(I’m wearing Rocker, Smokeshow & Funny
Girl in the photos below).  This brush set would also make a
great Christmas present – their brushes are my absolute
favorite!  And don’t forget my secret to getting free shipping
by including any beauty product to your purchase – this $3 lipliner in Peekaboo
Natural is the perfect pinkish nude and if you add it to your cart,
you’ll get free shipping regardless of your order amount!

winter layers

I’ve said it before – cashmere is always a good investment
and what better time to buy than when it’s on sale?!  This vest is super soft &
would make an amazing holiday gift – it’s perfect for throwing
on over a sweater or long-sleeve tee + it’s surprisingly warm. 
I paired it with a festive
fair isle sweater
& faux fur-lined boots for a cozy
winter look that’s a nice departure from my usual weekend

glam winter evening look

Who says that you have to show skin when you’re heading out
for the evening?!  I firmly believe that you can still turn heads
without wearing something revealing…and this glamorous pairing is
proof!  Especially in the winter months when I’m perpetually
cold, I personally prefer to be a bit more covered up so I don’t
freeze & end up miserable all night.

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for a pretty pleated skirt,
but I’ve learned through the years that, depending on the cut,
they aren’t always the most flattering.  Thanks to the elastic
waist and swingy silhouette, this midi skirt cinches in your
waist & falls beautifully away from your hips without
exaggerating your curves.  Originally, I had planned to pair it
with this off-the-shoulder
but when I saw the embellished sleeves on this one, I fell in love –
it’s so unique & looks like a high-end designer style!

Other holiday glam pieces that are worth checking out: this sequin dress, this velvet blazer (saw this at
my local store & it’s even more stunning in
person!), this fringe
, this velvet
bell-sleeve dress
, this
chic jumpsuit
& this
halter sheath dress
(very Meghan Markle-esque).
