Faux Leather Leggings + Oversized Sweater

Tonight as I write this, it is New Year’s eve, and my plans were to have an intimate dinner with hubby at the Signature Room in Chicago, and then after join some friends for a night out without baby. Instead I’m on my couch, eating pizza, and watching Master of None on Netflix. I woke up this morning sick with a sore throat and barely any voice, so I knew attempting to shout over a lively New Year’s crowd would not be an ideal situation for me.  Actually come to think of it, it’s really not so bad, I’ve got a fire going, I’m wearing my PJ’s, and I’m with my favorite people in the world. Not being able to talk today forced me to only communicate what was absolutely necessary, and for a chatterer like me, it was a good exercise to sit in silence. I’m pretty sure Tom didn’t mind either…

I think 2016 is the perfect time to announce my new found love for wearing leggings. Not just any old yoga pants though, Spanx faux leather leggings with a coated sheen that makes them look like real leather leggings, except they are way more comfortable and have the added benefit of body shaping (they are spanx, after all). Tights and an oversized cable-knit sweater is pretty much the perfect winter weekend outfit, paired with fuzzy slippers for lounging around the house, or with a pair of cute flats and a leather jacket for running errands.

Thanks for visiting as always, and Happy New Year! leopard-lace-up-shoes-cable-knit-sweaterleopard-flats-outfitoversize-sweater-spanx-leggingsLeggings: Thanks to Spanx | Sweater: H&M | Shoes: Zara (on Sale!) | Jacket: Sandro – Similar Style

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
