Over the Knee Boots

Bleeker Street Poncho (Atalie is wearing size petite, Shalice is wearing size regular)

Jeans // Boots (size up)

Sizing: generally if you’re 5’7″ and taller, we recommend getting the poncho, if you’re shorter than that, we recommend the petite size.

It was a dream of mine to make a matching set that me and my daughters could dress in. The poncho is flowy, heavy, warm and the perfect season-less layer. It is travel and nursing friendly and can be worn multiple ways. Did you know mother’s day is 13 days away? It’s a perfect gift to give and get!

When I was packing for 2 weeks in Omaha and Chicago this Christmas, I was struck by what pieces I continue to use over and over again. From a trusty camel coat and Gucci belt to flattering black jeans, you don’t need thousands of items to look chic, but really only a couple. I’ve traveled a lot, styled thousands of outfits and have scoured the internet for the practical yet chic pieces. I also am a firm believer in “investment buys” such as Stuart Weitzman OTK boots. Are they pricy, yeah! Will I wear them 25+ times this fall/Winter/Spring, YES. So the cost per wear is worth it. And you know what, I only used a couple like over the knee boots and black jeans that seemed to go with everything. Don’t tell Reid I didn’t need such a big bag. See below some faves the in the below categories.

Jackets and Coats  

Jackets and coats are worth the investment. After all, they coverup a whole outfit. So invest wisely.

Since our holiday plans are at a minimum since we’re moving, I like the idea of a $50 dress. It’s not only soft, but boasts a flattering mock-neck turtleneck. Since it’s too cold to sport the sleeveless dress outside, I paired it with my favorite faux-fur collar coat and slouchy boots. Now, if only moving was this easy! Stay tuned for my next holiday dress pick from TOPSHOP.  XO shalice
