Hello and happy Friday!! Today I'm bringing another gift guide but this time for guys. I seem to always find shopping for the men in my life whether it be my dad, brother or husband to be easier than the girls. They are clear on what they like and don't like and usually are happy with anything you get them because they don't shop much for clothes and accessories for themselves. Hope you find some inspiration for gift ideas! Enjoy and have a happy weekend! xo

Christmas is near so I thought I'd share a holiday inspired outfit without being too obvious about the color scheme. I stuck to just red on the lips and green on the legs and ears.
I love this coat! I adore a classic winter coat with toggle buttons and for me this is just that coat. And it's a great length that's not too short and not too long.
Got these boots a while ago from Forever 21. They're so unique with the mix of textures making them more than just the normal black boot.

I like to mix up my holiday outfits with some being subtle and others being bold Christmas themes. I have an adorable gingerbread skirt I will be featuring soon. It's always fun to dress up for this time of year.
Hope you all are having a wonderful week! I'm busy at it again with home projects and painting for myself and Alex to do. I'm glad it's cold outside so we don't have to feel bad about staying in working on things. Work has been getting crazy so it's nice to relax by doing these projects. I recently found out my team will be split up and going to different areas. I'm sad to be leaving everyone I have been working with even though I will still be able to see them. I'm excited for the new opportunity, and it's very good for me career wise. However, I'm nervous because I know nothing about the new people I will be working with. Hope everyone is getting all their holiday shopping done and getting prepared for the holidays since Christmas is next week!
Thanks for reading! xo

Happy Monday everyone! Lumbersexual seems to be the new style for guys recently but why can't girls take a try at it as well. I know Alex has been a fan of dressing in this style of flannels and whatnot before it even became a thing and he even has a beard and all. It's funny to see the style get defined with that name, but it's so perfect combining lumberjack and metrosexual. I swear Alex spends more time on his beard than I do on my hair.
Excuse my flannel with all the stuff on it, I was out in the trees and bushes to get photos for our first family Christmas card before this. We decided to take the photos this past weekend and all wore flannels including the four pups. We wanted something different than the usual "dress up for pictures" type of style. It was fun to try and get all the dogs to stay still for photos. Of course, the only one not listening was Ellie (the only girl dog). She wanted to run off and do her own thing which was going to the neighbor girls who wanted to play with her.

I have to say I do love a good flannel for days like this past weekend when it wasn't too cold. It keeps you warm without a coat. I opted to dress my flannel up with a statement necklace and hat to bring some feminine flair. Girls are able to do the lumberjack style just as good or even better than the boys!
I hope everyone had a good weekend! I was able to be productive getting pictures and cards done, wrapping gifts, and painting one of our bathrooms. I feel so accomplished when we are able to get a lot done especially on the house even if it means sacrificing sleep. Now it's on to another week and hope it's just as productive!
Thanks for reading and have a great day! xo
