As Christmas approaches, I'm still amazed at the amount of green present.  I thought for sure we would have brown foliage, and white snow, but no,  Just damp, cold, still greenish stuff on the ground.  But hey, I'll take that over negative twenty degrees any day.

This year I'm trying to go as low-key as possible.  I've avoided all the possible holiday parties, and am attempting to have the least amount of stress and business.  Sometimes, some years, I'm all about the parties and people and events.  Others, I'm really about the quietest possible of days.  It's all about balance and figuring out what you need right?

What are you focusing on this year?

Just before the huge snowfall I managed to grab two outfits that I haven't yet shared with you.  I know, I know.  I should do things chronologically, but hey, I really wanted to show that pretty pretty dress, and then I wanted to complain talk about snow; so, I just bumped this a bit.

Hey, I always said I share my daily outfits, just may not be in the exact order I wore them in.  That's fair right?  Sometimes, I'm just plain lazy *read: pooped from working and mothering* to edit pics and  post them in the exact order they came in.

So shoot me.  Or just send coffee...that might be the less murdery option.

There was a snowstorm.
There. Was. A. Snowstorm.
There was a SNOWSTORM.

And it was cold.

I decided not to leave the house.

And tea.  I decided to drink a lot of tea.

Dress - c/o eShakti  //  Cardigan - Ruche *old*  //  Tights - gift  //  Socks - UO  //  Boots - Locale  //  Necklace - Free People  //  Rings *other than ring finger rings* - F21

I've worked with eShakti before.  They always have a great selection of classic pieces, and whenever we get the chance to work together, I always end up with a wonderful addition to my wardrobe.  This time was no exception.  I selected this gorgeous red boho dress from their holiday collection, and because their pieces are customizable, I decided to make the sleeves on the dress full length.

I wanted a dress that was geared more towards Winter, rather then towards Summer, not that you can't wear this dress on a cooler summer day, just that I had a specific idea in mind.  I'm so happy with the way the longer sleeves turned out.

The dress now has a great boho-folk feeling to it.  Something that's fitting, as I'm a girl from rural Poland *not 100% true, I split my time between urban and rural Poland - but still braided Polish lass here* so the braided farm girl thing is in my blood.

And as a last note, can we take a moment to talk about the red? I couldn't resist this bold red.   I'm having a love affair with red lately.  Something about it has me enchanted.

Any colors that have totally captured you right now?

Braids When You Don't Have Time

Can we talk about how awesome braids are?  They're really easy, and take little time *this took me 10 minutes* but look like you really put in an effort.  Oh, and you can pretend your hair is super clean when really you're just too darn busy to give it a wash.

Yeah, I can really get behind anything that allows me to save time.

How To BAM and Winterize an Outfit

Dress - Avenle  //  Sweater - thrifted  //  Necklaces - Ruche  //  Belt - came with dress  //  Boots - Locale
 
My distaste for putting summer clothes away at the end of summer is well documented - especially 'cause the awesome deals appear right as the weather gets colder and who wants to wait a whole year to wear the pretty things!  Not me.  Avenle was a store I stumbled upon on Instagram and when I went to the site, I discovered a plethora of vintage-esque and boho-chic clothing.  It's all really well priced and they have great deals for newsletter subscribers.

So when I nabbed this cute dress for an insanely ridiculous low price, I definitely didn't wait.  Enter, layering.  I've expounded on the wonders of layering *it's the only thing that gets me through these harsh Winters* and I will continue to do so.  A tank top, thick tights, thigh high socks, knee high boots, and a sweater over the dress, and BAM! The outfit is winterized.

It's all about the layering people.
And the BAM!
You gotta have the BAM!

CosPlay

For Halloween, my little girl decided to be a butterfly.  We made her costume, complete with antennae, from scratch using old cardboard boxes.  I love that she had to work to create her costume, it made her so proud to go out and show everyone her wings.

And of course our house is not immune to the Frozen craze.  She loves the music and asks me to put it on every afternoon after school so she can sing and dance along to it.  Being the awesome mom that I am, I went on Ebay and got her an Anna costume (she's an Anna, not an Elsa girl), and for an extra $13 got myself an Elsa costume.  Now, it's all about the Anna and Elsa cosplay as we sing and dance every afternoon.
