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

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!!

Holiday Week of Chic: Girl Boss Giveaway

Hi Friends!


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!


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).

And my booties that I wore here and here are 32% off.

Ray-Ban: 30% off of everything // I love the option to customize your glasses and add a personal message inside the frame for a great gift!

Gifts for the Guys

Happy Tuesday,

Happy Thanksgiving week!  During this week of thanks I try and remember to take extra time to say "hello" and smile and say "Happy Thanksgiving" to strangers (as creepy as that sounds) because maybe they will pass along the gesture.  I love the saying, "it is not happy people who are thankful, but thankful people who are happy."

Today's gift guide is all about the guys in our life!  I am so incredibly thankful for all of the guys in mine.  I tried to keep them all in mind when putting this together.  Jonny actually had a say (or two) while I was picking things out in today's guide.

  1. Kiehl's Travel Ready Starter Kit $43
  2. Bose Quiet Comfort Noise Cancelling Headphones $349.95 and Wool Smart Phone Gloves $49
  3. Monogrammed Wallet $80 Cozy Slippers $110
  4. Onsie Jammies $70 Robe $165
  5. Weekender $395 (Jonny uses this one! $129)
  6. Zip Front Jacket $139 Puffer Coat $900 (splurge!) love this one too and 40% off with code holiday
  7. Embossed tie case $149 Plaid Shirt $145

My dad and Jonny both travel quite a bit for work so last year they requested a nice weekender (like this one $395).  Previously, (for all of my dad's professional life) he used a backpack for short trips and he has loved his new bag.  Jonny has this one $129, and recommends it to everyone.  Our family does Christmas jammies every year and I am planning on getting these for Jonny, they crack me up and will actually be perfect and so cozy for after skiing (fingers crossed we get some snow!).  I think this tie case would make a wonderful gift and I love that it can be personalized.  

5 years ago I got Jonny his first pair of Uggs - sometimes we don't think of Ugg as a product for guys, but I think guys like soft, cozy things just as much as we do! He wears his boots to work during the winter, under jeans and after skiing (similar pair here).  I also love these slippers that I am planning to get him - I think the rubber sole will be nice for taking Stanley out in the morning.  As for whats on his wishlist for this year... he mentioned that how this jacket is (I also like this one that is 40% off with code holiday).  He has this one that he throws on for work, but this one would be nice for really cold days.  We will see ;).

I will be adding new things to my Holiday Shop all this week and will be doing my best to keep you all updated with the best sale info! So make sure to check back often this week for Black Friday sale tips and round-ups and please let me know if there is anything you have your eye on that I should be looking out for too!

Gearing up for the Holidays!

Happy Friday!

I hope you had a wonderful week! It is finally feeling like November in Colorado.  We had our first snow yesterday (which is crazy late) so now I am officially ready for the holidays to begin.  Until yesterday there has been little need for coats or boots - or even sweaters which are usually standard attire during this time of year.

You guys all know that I love J Crew Factory, there is a location near our place in the mountains and Jonny and I stopped in last weekend and coincidentally were both decked out - head to toe in Factory apparel.  We always try and knock out some of our holiday shopping early there because they have fantastic sales and the good stuff always goes quickly! 

I got my coat ($134) on sale last year (also comes in festive red and black) and it so comfy and warm and is wonderful quality! It is pretty much an exact duplicate of the non factory version (I do love this plaid version on sale: with code Festive!).  I wear this shirt ($16.99) year round, with white jeans and skirts in the summer, and with tights/skirts or jeans and boots in the winter.  I think a scarf is always a lovely gift.  I bought this scarf in different patterns (like this one) for myself and my sisters and we are planning on wearing them for our family Christmas card this year.

What are you up to this weekend?! Hope its a great one!

Adventures with Woodzee

Hi Friends,

I hope you are having a great week so far.  I am getting so excited for Thanksgiving... I can't believe how quickly the holidays have snuck up on us!!  Jonny and I have a full weekend of fun ahead, first celebrating my Nana and Papa's 65th wedding anniversary (watch out for some adorable snaps on my instagram story), and then the first of about a million Thanksgiving feasts.  

I am pretty sure the pants that I am wearing here and love so much will no longer fit after next week.  Oh well... YOLO?  These distressed jeans are great, but I also love a bargain and found two pair for less than half the price (here $70 and here $59).

Jonny and I were so thankful to get a way last weekend before the craziness of the holidays begins.  We took Stanley on his first hike and Jonny golfed - which is semi terrifying because it means our ski resorts won't be opening any time soon :/.  I thought my new sunglasses from Woodzee were the perfect accessory to bring along on our weekend adventure.  I love that each pair is unique and made from buffalo horn.  Jonny got these! Both would make great Christmas gifts.  Also, think the tassels on my sweater are so fun, it is almost out of stock, so I found several more that I love (here, here and here!)

Have a great day! Cheers!

Gifts for your host and hostess with the mostess!

Morning Friends!

I hope you have had a chance to relax this weekend after a long and interesting week.

Jonny and I are both from Colorado so between the two of us, the holidays can be CRAZY busy.  We have big families which means multiple celebrations for both of us, but we would not have it any other way.  And with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it could be helpful to share some of my favorite hostess gifts.  

Hosting a holiday is no small feat.  We hosted Friendsgiving last year and it was a blast!  But, my goodness was it tough.  I remember thinking "how did my mom do this all the time?".  She was the hostess with the mostess and seemed to do it so effortlessly.  I now know the real time and energy that it takes to make a holiday go smoothly.  

I love bringing a small hostess gift to each gathering we attend throughout the holidays.  Something small like these Sugarfina boxes are perfect, adorable (and delicious!), they come in several designs and various flavors.  I think this CHEESE BOARD is so special (yes, it is a cheese board!)... almost too pretty to put cheese on, almost ;).  I am planning on getting one for our home for a few of our upcoming gatherings.  Also I love the this cocktail guide cutting board for the great bartending host!

  1. Dessert Plate $18
  2. Gilded Candle $39
  3. Handblown Vase $59
  4. Gratitude Gift Tray $48
  5. Soap and Towel Gift Set $35
  6. Coasters $49
  7. Agate Cheese Board $78
  8. Fabulous Mug $15
  9. Glitter Frame $40
  10. Bartender Prep Board $69
  11. Wax Seal $45
  12. Cheers! Candy Bento Box $29

V - Is for Vote!

Happy Election Day Friends!

My dad first ran for office when I was in first grade - so Election Day has always been a big deal in our house. I will never, ever discuss politics here, except today and only to remind you how important it is to vote!   You can find voter information here!

Campaigning has always been a family activity for us.  Tossing out candy at parades, knocking on doors to hand out literature after soccer practice... and making phone calls on election day - it is so much fun and such a big part of who my sisters and I are.  Fall during an election year, the campaign office was our second home.  And as a daughter, it is my right to put a little plug in for my dad and ask you to vote for him if you live in the 7th congressional district of Colorado :)!  

I wore this outfit to dinner over the weekend in the mountains.  It is pretty crazy that we can still go tightsless in the mountains in November, but I'll take it! I snagged this skirt $79 at J Crew Factory (love it there!) and am planning on wearing it tonight for election night festivities tonight!  I like that it is conservative, but still fun with the tie on the side.  It also comes in burgundy! This blanket scarf is my favorite for this time of the year and is perfect to carry through the holidays - and let me tell you, is so cozy (and under $45)!  I wear these booties All. The. Time. - so comfy and love that the neutral color goes with pretty much anything!  Also, I used to be a necklace and studs girl, but these earrings have changed that! They are a little heavy, but I have still been wearing them every chance I get!

I hope you have a wonderful Election Day! Follow Zoe and me along on some Election Day adventures today on my instagram stories.
