Hello ladies! Christmas will be here before we know it, so I wanted to share this festive red Christmas sweater I picked up over Black Friday.  This sweater is so warm and cozy.  I love the oversized fit for a little dessert indulging.  The cowl neck detail is a perfect little something extra on this sweater.  I always love little details that take something a step above basic.

I noticed this sweater is still 30% off too!  I paired it with my black jeans and slouchy boots.  You could also go with leopard flats or blue jeans and brown boots.

Happy Friday! I know it’s only the first week of December, but I think I’m ready to declare this my favorite outfit post of the month!  It’s the perfect chic and effortless mix.  I had to give this off the shoulder sweater trend a try.  I found this gorgeous neutral toned sweater, and ya’ll I’m in love.

The cable knit design makes this sweater soft, warm, and cozy.  The off the shoulder portion is actually really comfortable too.  You never really know with off the shoulder, sometimes it can feel very restricting.  I think this style really works with a sweater design with the large overhang like this one.  The overlay helps hold the off the shoulder in place, and the loose knit helps you be able to move you arms.

Also, you can pop the material up to create a cowl neck sweater for the office.  I did that HERE.  I love that this sweater can be both classic office friendly and weekend trendy.

I love an all neutral look, so I went with my white jeans and nude heels on this one.  To keep that earth tone feel, I also added on my stone pendant necklace.  This outfit will definitely be making an appearance at an upcoming holiday party!  If you want another option, you could do black jeans and brown boots too.

I hope ya’ll have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

If you thought I was going super casual last week, you haven’t seen anything yet. Ha! I know this one is a bit different then my normal dressy casual style, but I wanted to share a super comfy travel outfit for you guys.  For many, holidays mean a flight or road trip is in the books.  If you don’t have big travel plans, this look would also be the perfect athleisure outfit for errand running or tree hunting.

I know I say I love lots of different pieces of my wardrobe, and I do love all of them.  BUT these leggings are one of my favorite things in my closet!  I own two pairs of them because I wear them so much during the winter.  They are called Live In Leggings, and I do just that.  I wear them as loungewear around the house, under tunic sweaters and tops outside of the house, and under skirts and dresses for those really cold days at work.

The best thing about these leggings, besides being super comfy, they are not see through!  The material is super thick, so no worries of your panties peeking through.  Despite the thicker material, these leggings are still so comfy and have a lightweight feel to them.  When I was grabbing the link to share with ya’ll, I saw they have over 3,000 5-Star reviews, so I guess I’m not the only one obsessed with them.

For those of you curious on sizing, I’m a 27 in jeans, and I wear a small in these.  They are a little long on my petite frame.  I let the material bunch up around my ankle.  You can see it in some of the pictures.

As for the rest of my athleisure travel outfit, this olive cocoon pullover is the perfect lightweight top for a Texas winter.  I love the looser fit for traveling.  If you are on a road trip or plane, it makes it easier to move around in your seat and makes me overall just more comfortable.  Also, these sneakers are really comfy for walking.  I wear these for my gym workouts and some errand running, so they have been tested and approved.

I hope ya’ll are having a great week so far! Don’t forget to keep scrolling to check out today’s Style File Link Up. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Hello! Well, I’m sure we are all in the middle of our holiday gift shopping, so today I’m sharing Christmas gift ideas for him.  Many of the items on this list are man-approved by my husband, family, and friends.

I think Christmas and Birthdays are the perfect time to improve enhance a guy’s wardrobe.  I picked a few items I think would work for a variety of men and ages.  Most men could use a new pair of pj pants and a nice pullover, something to wear to family gatherings or date night.  You can also look at what items they may need updated versions of like a new briefcase or a splurge item like a new pair of sunglasses.

Last year, travel gift ideas were pretty popular, so I included a few more ideas.  The toiletry kit is a repeat from last year because I think it’s a really good gift idea.  It’s one of those items most guys don’t think about, ziploc bags are not a toiletry kit guys. 😉  I gave one as a gift last year, and it was a HUGE hit!  A sturdy duffel bag is perfect for the guy who heads out for weekend adventures.  One fun idea I found this year for the gadget guy is a travel cable and accessories kit.  It’s a small pouch with all the organizational needs for storing cables, plugs, and other gadget necessities for a trip.

If you have a football fan or avid camper/hunter/fisher, I found a few ideas that would work for them all.  A few husband approved items are this cooler which has now become my husband’s lunch kit and tailgating cooler.  This portable grill/smoker is a favorite brand of his too. It’s perfect to pack away for a camping trip.   He loved this one so much he just upgraded to a larger non-portable one by the same brand so he can smoke more meat.  Man games like corn hole and a bluetooth speaker to play music are also great ideas for entertainment.

Hopefully this holiday gift guide gave you a few ideas for the man in your life, even the difficult to shop for guy.  A few other ideas are sports tickets, a bottle of their favorite liquor/wine, and gift certificate to a nice steak restaurant.  Bonus points on the last one if you get to go too.
