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!

Snowshoe Adventure

Hi Guys!

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you had a great long weekend!  Jonny and I spent a few days in the mountains skiing then rushed down to Denver and enjoyed a Broncos win - woot woot! 

Growing up, my mom used to go snowshoeing and I though she was crazy for ever taking the time to snowshoe over ski.  Jonny and I adventured around our cabin on some snowshoes about a month ago and I have been hooked since!  

Recently, some friends and I took our pups on a little snowshoe adventure and now they are hooked too!!  It is such a fun way to spend time with your friends while enjoying the outdoors.  Living in beautiful Colorado it is the perfect way to explore our amazing environment - right in our backyard.

Liz and I both opted for vests and sweaters since it was a gorgeous, sunny day!  This vest that I wore is 30% off today and free shipping with code puzzle - limited sizes an colors left (also like this one and this one)! Her pup, Gus, and Charlie Brown are besties so it is always fun to do active outdoor things with them together.  I have been wearing pom pom hats as often as possible.  We got ours at little boutique in Breckenridge (and I have since purchased them in white, black, and orange!) but this is a great option with several colors to choose from.  I have said this a few times, but I never in a million years thought I would purchase a pair of "rain boots" living in CO, but I have gotten more wear out of these red Hunters more than any other boot this season!  And they are really actually great in snow, just need a thick sock to keep your toesies warm.  I have also been on the hunt to find an orange puffer like my friend Brit's (Brit is the adorable girlfriend of my lovely photographer, Corey, and a great photographer herself! Check out both of their work here and here)- no such luck in finding her exact jacket so far! But I do love this one (40% off)  and it will hopefully get here in time to cheer on the Broncos on Sunday!!!

Have a wonderful short week!
