All Dressed Up: Holiday Outfit

Last night Logan and I finally had a date night.  It's been a while since we've gone out but more concerning than that is that we are finding it difficult to spend quality time together lately = not connecting in the way we like.  I don't mean to complain but I will for just a minute.  I find that we are so exhausted by the time we have gone to work, gotten the kids to their activities (and our kids aren't even super busy), helped them with their homework, made supper for the next day, and  cleaned up that by the time we finally sit down at 9:30 or 10:00 we just passively watch TV and go to bed.  I know that we aren't the only ones so I am looking for some advice,  how do you and your significant other take the time to connect during the week?  


Anyway, as I was saying we went out to watch a Christmas Carol at our local theater and though it's not my favorite Christmas story, the show was amazing and we went with friends which made it even more special.  My parents couldn't babysit, so my 84 year old grandma came over to watch the girls.  I am beyond blessed to have lots of family around who love spending time with our girls, but I feel most blessed about having not one but two grandmas that are still alive.  


 This sweater dress is a definite go-to in my closet.  First off, I love the color.  Second, it's perfect with tights and booties, and the main reason for loving it is that  it's super comfortable of course!  I am pretty sure that this will be my holiday outfit for our family dinner.  Shhh, the vest works miracles to hide your belly when you've had a bit too much.    I've had it for a couple of seasons and am looking for a replacement as it's gotten a tad bit too clingy too my body :(  and it's beginning to pill from washing it so much (as mentioned above I wear it a LOT).  I am also getting a ton of wear out of my new fur vest featured   HERE and on my INSTAGRAM.  I paired it up with my H & B rose gold jewelry which I also wear all the time so it was well worth the investment, especially since some of pieces were gifts :) 

Sweater Dress Replacement Options:

Chickwish Cable Knit, Bell Sleeve Sweater Dress

Dex Cold-Shoulder Sweater Dress

RW & Co Cold Shoulder Sweater Dress


  1. Gorgeous- I love that vest! We went to the Christmas Carol too and loved it.

    1. It was so good. I would love to see them do Little Women again one year so that I can take the girls.

  2. Good you got to spend some quality time with you partner.
    You look so nice in this outfit. I love the jacket, the bag, the bracelet, really pretty.
    Have a great week dear :)

    1. Thank you for your kind words Sauniya. Making time to connect is so important and just this morning I read your blog that talks about "the happily ever after" and I completely agree you are constantly working towards that and you will never be able to just "have" it without working for it.

  3. Ohhh love that vest and that clutch!! So cute and perfect for the holidays :)
