On Mountain Time

Hi Friends!

Jonny and I (and Stanley) are back home and getting reacquainted with "city life" after enjoying the snow in the mountains and being on leisurely mountain time for the last few weeks.  We were really starting to think that we may not ever come home.  We just love being up there and enjoying the fresh air so much - it is incredibly peaceful.  And any place that encourages a cup of cocoa and chocolate chip cookie a day gets bonus points in my book!

I got a lot of questions about this cape when I posted it on Instagram last week.  It is from my favorite Vail boutique, Blitz.  Blitz has been around forever (shared another favorite from them here and here) and always has something that I can't resist (seriously, they are probably the reason I have 97 pom pom hats).  It was too cold to think about dresses, but their dress selection is always spot on! If you have a trip to Vail planned be sure to stop by!

My exact cape can be purchased from their store online here.  I also found several similar options (all under $150!) here, here, here, and here!! I think everyone needs a pair of these liquid leggings and you cant beat the $29 price tag!  Also, I love the height of these boots (also come in a pretty tan)- they hit right at the knee which makes them very versatile.

After Christmas Vacation

Hi Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend filled with joy, family, and delicious treats.  Jonny and I had a such a laid back Christmas this year - we spent almost the entire day in our pajamas and changed into some of our new Christmas gifts, just before dinner.  It was was the perfect Christmas.

We are packing up and heading to the mountains to spend the remainder of the holiday with Jonny's family today.  Packing may be one of my least favorite things, but for this holiday week it always seems a bit easier because I just pack all of my new Christmas sweaters, like this one $79 (thanks mom!), the sparkliest pieces in my closet, my coziest sweatshirts and socks to curl up in after a long ski day, and all. the. fur. (I've been waiting for another occasion to wear this poncho!).

My blouse (comes in black too!) is an additional 50% off today only with CODE: thebest. My new sweater is also an additional 50% off with CODE: thebest.  Recently I have received a few questions about my favorite pink lipstick - I have been buying these Revlon ColorBurst Balm pencils like it's my job.  They are so easy, moisturizing and don't smudge... and $6.19 so I pretty much have one in every purse/clutch!  Let me know if you have any other questions, always happy to answer them.

Have a wonderful day! Jonny and I have a bet going to see if we will be able to fit in one car with all of our bags, Stanley, his kennel, and all of his belongings (he's like a baby).  I think we can do it, but Jonny is skeptical.  I'll let you know!

Holiday Week of Chic: Coats for him and her and lip kit giveaway

Happy Sunday!

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and that you have been enjoying this Holiday Week of Chic Giveaway series as much as Lacey and I have.  Today we have partnered with Glo Minerals to give away a Lip Temptation Kit which makes for the most perfect holiday lip color!

We are exactly a week away from Christmas so today I am spending the day ordering the last of my gifts online to ensure they arrive on time.  With the amount of snow we have gotten over the past few days I have had coats on the brain as a great Christmas gift.  I snagged mine this summer (you know I never plan ahead, but this time I did and am so thankful!) and got this coat for steal! It is so incredibly warm and still on sale HERE and I also love this one and this one also on sale!  I found a very similar coat in four colors, I like the white, and 50% off ($89).

A person or two on my list have requested this coat (40% off with code Holiday).  I have this similar option in grey (worn here and here) and currently $134.  I also love this long puffer jacket very similar to the one I am wearing and $80.

Jonny always needs a new jacket (or two).  With the weather constantly changing and outdoor activities here in Colorado he always has a need for a slightly different layer (or so he thinks ;) ).  

Jonny gets the a ton of use out his Patagonia jackets and fleeces - he wears them to the office, after skiing and out with friends, so you can imagine he wears through them pretty quickly.  I love this plain one and this quilted one, and know he has eye on a patterned one like this .  For work I always think it is nice for a guy to have a classic pea coat and this one is 65% off!  I also like the idea of an updated fun parka like this one $199 that is nice enough for work, but warm enough for weekends in the mountains. 

Be sure to join today's giveaway and the other great giveaways that will be open for a few more days (we have two more coming your way!!) Have a wonderful Sunday!

Holiday Week of Chic: From our House to Yours and Minted Giveaway

Good Morning, Friends!!

It looks like we may have a white Christmas here in Colorado.  We woke up to about about a foot of fresh snow in Denver so I am currently debating if I am going to be at all productive today or hibernate for the rest of winter (or at least the day!).  

If you have been following along for a little while, you know I have a bit of an obsession with Minted.  They helped us outfit our home (here) and I have used them for our Christmas cards every year (a little about that here).  This year was no different!! So obviously, Lacey and I didn't think this giveaway would be complete without a little something from our favorite online stationary and gift store.

Today's giveaway is $125 to Minted which is good through 2017!!  So you can get a head start on next year's holiday cards, New Year's cards, wedding stationary, or home decor... whatever your fancy.  Happy Holidays from Lacey, Minted, and me to you!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Holidays from our house to yours

Love,

The Millers

Holiday Week of Chic: What your Bestie Wants Giveaway

Happy Friday Guys!!

We are on to day four of our Holiday Week of Chic Giveaway series! And that also means less than 10 days until Christmas (holy moly!) so I am sharing some of the things that are on my list for my best friends including some fun pieces from today's giveaway with J.McLaughlin and Margaret O'Leary.   

Guys, this Forever 21 clutch is my favorite bargain of the season ($7).  I literally bought four of them (3 as gifts and one for myself)!  My friends and I are always needing to charge our phones while we are out and about so this glittery Kate Spade charger would be a perfect gift!  I was just talking to two of my girl friends the other night and we all love these monogrammed necklaces.  Bauble Bar does a great job all together with gifts.  I just received a few of my orders in the mail and can't wait to give them on Christmas.  I particularly love this set from them!

For today's giveaway we are so excited to be partnering with J.McLaughlin and Margaret O'leary to give away a pair of sunnies and the coziest scarf!  J.McLaughlin recently launched a new line of sunglasses  and I love that a classic pair like Lacey and I are wearing never go out of style! And who doesn't need a warm piece like this scarf to bundle with during this chilly winter?

Have a wonderful Friday!!

Hi Friends!

DSC04057_2016.jpg

Happy Thursday and day three of our Holiday Week of Chic Giveaway Series! 

This giveaway is for all the ladies!!  Every single one of us is a girl boss and we should own it on the reg (am I right?)! Today we partnered with Swoozies, one of my go - to places for gifts (read more about them here and here!) to bring you a whole bag of goodies for you or another girl you think is pretty awesome in your life (btw - we think you all are!).  

The whole bag of goodies comes in this adorable and festive reindeer tote.  I just love Lauren Conrad and this book is a guide on entertaining which I love... Lacey and I could have used a little assistance in the gift wrapping department, but we were proud we got the job done!  And I wish I could have a drink out of this "Hello Gorgeous" mug and this "Everyday I'm Hustling" water bottle all the time - such fun little reminders and pick me ups!

Holiday Week of Chic: Hostess Giveaway

Happy Wednesday and day two of our giveaway series!

For day two of our Holiday Week of Chic giveaway series we have something for the hostess with the mostess!  Lacey and I have partnered with Cherry Creek Shopping Center and Z Gallerie to make sure you are equipped with all of the proper accessories to host a lovely party this holiday season.

Z Gallerie has such great gifts for the hostess.  You can find even more here! My older sister gave me this same hostess book the first year Jonny and I moved into our first home together and I always thought it was such a fun gift idea.  I have also had my eye on a similar cheese board (which I shared with you in my gift guide for the hostess here) it is such a pretty display piece so happy to know that they have some available here (incase you are not our winner this week!)!  I am also particularly in love with the furry wine sleeve in this pretty set!

Holiday Week of Chic: Tulle Skirt Giveaway!

Hi Friends!

I am so excited for this week! Lacey, from My Boring Closet and I are kicking off our Holiday Week of Chic giveaway series today and have some wonderful giveaways in store for you all.  During this season of giving we wanted to be sure to give back to all of you who are so supportive of us.  So we have collaborated with some of our favorite brands to give away some fun things for the holidays and just in time to check a few things off your list.  Look out for something for the beauty lover, hostess with the mostess, and of course, a few things for the fashion lover!

First up is a tulle skirt from Patterns and Pops! Lacey and I had so much fun twirling around in these.  Full disclosure, Stanley may have had even more fun with these skirts than we did.  The next day after we shot this look he escaped his kennel and and had a field day when he got a hold of one of the skirts... He's going through quite the faze guys (any advice please send it my way!).  

Anyway, I think every girl should wear a tulle skirt at least once! They  put an instant smile on your face and I am convinced they go with anything and everything - plaid shirts, leather jackets, crop tops, sequins, sweaters.... anything.  Patterns and Pops is offering our readers 50% off of skirts with code: TULLE (just in case you are not the lucky winner this week!).

Dressed in Holiday Style with MAX

Hi Guys!

I hope you had a wonderful week! I am so excited for some festive fun this weekend.  I love that there are so many opportunities to wear extra special dresses durning the holidays and that it is perfectly appropriate to wear sparkle, bows, and lace on just about everything.  

Last week I stopped in MAX Boutique in Cherry Creek (additional locations in Boulder and Aspen), which is at the very top of my list for for high end boutiques in Colorado!  Max, the owner is one of the friendliest people around and has amazing style! I can't wait to show you some other fun things I snagged while I was there.  They carry a ton of beautiful Self Portrait dresses which are perfect for the holidays!!  My dress is sold out online, but available at MAX and found some similar options (here, here, and here).

I wore this dress to Jonny's office holiday party earlier this week.  It was really snowing so I ended up wearing tights and these black pumps.  As for my new over the knee boots, as you know I was a little scared to try this trend, and now I can't get enough!  I always felt they would make me look even shorter than I already am, but it turns out they elongate and are incredibly comfortable.  My coat is one of my favorite hand-me-downs from my mom, but I found a similar coat (on major SALE here $159) and also here $449.  I've linked several similar dresses and the rest of my outfit details below!

What fun holiday plans do you have this weekend?!

Winter Wonderland

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

Geez, this month is flying by... I must admit, my Christmas cheer has been a little low this year.  Typically by this time I am blaring Christmas music and the house has been decorated for almost a month, but this year has been different.  I think it may have a little to do with the loss of Charlie Brown  (Jonny says Charlie had a lot of Christmas "whoop") and the warm weather late into the fall.  As much as I love this time of year it hasn't felt the same until last night.

Last night we went to our first Christmas party of the season.  The snow started falling just before we arrived and it was just magical! We toured all of the beautiful Christmas lights in the city after the party and I finally feel like I can put up some decorations today :).  Wish me luck!

I am so happy that rules like, "No white after Labor Day," are a thing of the past.  I think a completely white or off white look is perfect for the holidays.  I am planning on wearing this whole J.McLaughlin (minus my boots which are currently 25% off and purse) when we head to the mountains over the holidays.  My fur poncho is so warm and cozy, and I have been wearing the turtleneck under everything!!  I love that that their clothes are tailored to a woman's body, which means the jeans I am wearing have a great mid rise.  I would also recommend sizing down if you are between sizes.

Stay warm today, friends!

Holiday Card Ready

Hi Guys!

DSC01456_2016-3_2016.jpg

I hope you are having a lovely week.  I put real clothes on for the first time yesterday - and today am back in my p.j.'s .... the doctor said this flu is lasting 10 days - 3 weeks and wow, am I red nosed vision in sweats.  My poor husband.  

Right before Thanksgiving we took pictures for our holiday card(s).  My whole family was in town so before Jonny, Stanley and I took our pictures we were able to take a few with my sisters, and their significant others and my mom as well which we haven't done in a long time.  Growing up we would take holiday photos every year, but actually getting the holiday card itself out was always a big task.

The past three years Jonny and I have used Minted and I am more amazed by the way they ease the process every year! I signed in to create our card and was trying to think of our list from last year and was happily surprised that they had it (and the addresses) saved.  They offer free pre addressing, with the cutest design options.  And you can even order personalized stamps or stamps that match your card (so easy!). We selected this design but were torn because we love this one too.

My dress is from Patterns and Pops $68.  I just love the sweet bows on the back - it is so comfy and would also be great with tights and boots as it gets colder.  Jonny's shirt is on major sale $25!  Stanley's bow tie is from a local doggy boutique (Two Pals and Pup), but in case you aren't in the area, I found a similar one here.  Shop the rest of my look and a few of my favorite red dresses (all under $100!) below.

Have a great day!

Cyber Monday Sale Roundup!

Happy Monday,

Hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing holiday weekend.... I have to admit that I have been enjoying "cyber week" not just CYBER MONDAY.  This cold has been a real doozy so I have not stepped one foot inside of a mall.  Honestly, as much as I love the tradition and seeing Santa (absolutely serious about that - literally have an Elf moment every time), it has been so nice to shop from the comfort of home.  Also today are some of the best sales yet!!  I have listed them all below.  And check out my favorite picks from each here and here.  

My whole look (above) is currently 60% off. My jacket ($107) and comes in 3 colors and red hunters never go sale (25% off)! Shop it in the scrolling gallery below.

Black Friday Sale Roundup!

Happy Black Friday!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends.  Jonny and I had a relaxing day and limited ourselves to only two Thanksgivings this year which made it so nice be able to enjoy more time with everyone and less time traveling to and from each destination.  Not to mention, we probably saved a few calories, but who is counting on Thanksgiving #amiright?

There are so many great sales (obviously) right now, so I am just warning you, this is going to be a lengthy roundup, so pull up a chair and some cider.  Admittedly, I am likely doing the same thing.  I woke up with a pretty terrible cold (ugh!) and after feasting on all.the.things yesterday - sweats, a bun, online shopping, and Love Actually is all thats on the agenda for me today!

My entire outfit is currently over 50% off.  My jacket ($229), skirt ($114), and matching blouse are all 52% off through November 28th.  I wore an old blouse (similar here 30% off).  My favorite (and comfiest) heels are 20% off, but have very limited sizes left here - full priced, but more sizes available here ($119).
