Coat and similar // Similar Bootcut Jeans // Men’s Hoodie // Fendi Flip Bag // Western Boots This coat looks like the Moncler or SAM but a fraction of the price! I’m wearing the XS. I didn’t use the finger openings since I have long arms. I like the warmth and overall construction of the coat.

I’ll list my 5 goals for 2021 below, but first . . . .

We’re working on something new! Hopefully we’ll roll it out January 30 and I honestly can’t wait to show you guys! Reid and I are having so much fun putting this project together and we hope you love it too! 

Thank YOU for your invaluable support of my corner of the internet. 2021 will be full of pieces I’ve LOVED and styled MANY times for easy dressing as busy moms, career women, and everything in between. As usual, it’s all about looking as beautiful as possible while keeping it as simple as possible. Here’s to 2021!

Anyone else (I’m looking at you mamas) love the ease of stylish activewear? I for one, am obsessed. And who does activewear better than lululemon? My outfit here is all lululemon – from the jacket down to my bra. All the materials they use are amazing, so when they launched their Cloudscape Jacket, I knew it would be amazing! It’s the perfect puffer for fall layering but is also warm enough to carry you into winter. Because I’m so obsessed (with everything lululemon, to be honest), here are three reasons why I love the new jacket and think it would be a great addition to your activewear!

  1. I couldn’t believe something so warm could be so lightweight! The jacket is perfect for travel and hiking and is under $250. I had a similar jacket last winter that was 4x the price, which is great quality, but this one is just as good!
  2. I love how lululemon nails the details. For example, the two interior pockets and soft stretchy material at the wrist seam. It’s things like this that take a purchase from good to great, in my opinion. If we go skiing this winter, I’ll be sure to pack it – no snow is getting up my sleeves this time! 
  3. It’s FLATTERING. From a styling point of view, the large scale of the Cloudscape Jacket worn with leggings makes the legs look skinny – I’m a fan!

Have you checked out the summer/fall essentials at lululemon!? These leggings are a fave because of the texture, and the tee I’m wearing here is also a go-to of mine. I even found some gems like cute shorts for my girls on lululemon’s “We Made too Much” page. They were under $20, and I love quality clothes that can be worn over and over again. My girls beg to wear them every day, which is another problem, and a future blog post. But in the meantime, I’m wearing these leggings over and over again – this time with a tank and camel coat. And I’m definitely packing my Cloudscape Jacket for a long weekend in Lake Arrowhead.

How would you wear your cloudscape jacket? Now, I can’t wait to wear mine with a hoodie.

Thank you lululemon for sponsoring this post!

A good coat goes a long way. I love wearing just a plain tee under a great statement or teddy coat with classic denim. So, the investment goes a long way. Which is your favorite?

I’ll admit I have a leopard problem right now. I’ve got leopard coming out of my ears in the form of pretty pointed flats, sexy coats and pencil skirts. However, the moment you touch this soft coat, you’ll find a similar obsession at hand. I cannot wait to dress it down with cropped denim and a thin sweater. Maybe even these boots? After all, I’m pretty sure leopard’s a neutral.
