So, it’s New Years Eve tomorrow night and I bet a lot of you have fun plans. As do I. Sitting on my couch (post putting Henry down), watching some episodes of The Crown with Andrew and a nice bottle of red and then going to bed by 10. BOOM. I bet you’re so jealous. But really, I can think of nothing I want to do more than that. I’m the youngest granny on the block, and I embrace it now, instead of getting all FOMO about life like I used to. No glittery Instagram party snaps will make me feel bad about slothing it on the sofa this year! But more power to you if you are so motivated! So I partnered with Nordstrom, my favorite place to shop online, to bring you four New Years Eve outfits based on your effort level from 1(leggings) to 4 (Spanx). You’re bound to find inspiration in at least one of these ensembles, if not for tomorrow night, than another night in the near future.
One of the things I hope to do over the holidays is go see Jackie. The trailer has me in awe and as someone who has not only always admired Jackie’s style but also was taught to revere her in boarding school (she went to Miss Porters as well and her name seems to always be attached to the school now!) I’m really interested in cracking the “perfect” exterior of this fashion icon– and I’ve heard the movie does that.
I am psyched to introduce you to a new online shop I just discovered, Halsbrook. It’s unique in that I really feel like all ages can shop here (I know that you guys range in age from your 20’s to your 70’s, so this kind of source is so wonderful for those who like this blog!) The aesthetic is sort of Kate Middleton meets Audrey Hepburn meets Jackie O. Kinda perfect, right? They approached me about becoming an EOS sponsor and I was thrilled. I think their collection is high quality, tightly edited and refreshingly classic (with an edge). So I put together some holiday looks from their shop to share today in hopes that inspires you in your dressing this season.
I love this look (and have that necklace on it’s way to me as I type!) Comfortable and classic but with fun touches in the accessories. Oh and did I mention this trench not only has a leopard lining but also a zip in FLEECE lining for when it’s rainy AND cold? Genius (also available in tan).
I am SO darn excited about revealing this to you guys because I think it might be my best yet! Just in time for your letters to Santa, here is my new design for M. Flynn called Heirloom. Why am I calling it that you ask? Well, let me tell you…
Before we know it, it’s going to be time to go to holiday parties. How is time moving at warp speed this year??? To avoid the last minute shopping trip (which inevitably leaves you will a closet full of items you only SORT of like because you just wanted something “new” to wear) I put together a bunch of gorgeous holiday party outfits from Nordstrom to help you plan ahead and think about what kind of look you want for whatever gathering you need to attend. From super fancy to my favorite fancy-casual blend, you’re sure to find something fab to add to your closet. CLICK ITEMS FOR LINKS!
