In the Valentine’s Day Mood

Is anyone else really in the Valentine’s Day mood this week?? This past weekend, we made Kennedy’s Valentine’s Day box for school (if you saw our IG stories, you saw how obnoxiously amazing it is😁), put together all of her candy and bags, and made some final plans for our little family getaway this week!

I figured what better way to express my excitement, than wear my heart on my sleeve (literally)! I found the cutest “Lost in Love” sweatshirt on sale for only $13.99! I also found some other cute tops if you’re feeling festive this week!

Find my sweatshirt here! It’s only $13.99!

How cute is this blouse?! The hearts are so subtle, and this would be such a cute work to date night top. Find it here.

If you’re lucky enough to be in warmer temps this week, this cute t-shirt would be perfect for you! Find it here.

Not a fan of the typical red and pink for Valentine’s Day? Then this vintage sweatshirt is for you! Find it here.

If you are REALLY in the Valentine’s Day spirit, then this blouse is for you! Find it here!

Chic Ski Wear

If you guys were following along on our IG stories and feed last weekend, you know I took a weekend trip to a ski resort with my mom and sister for our mom’s birthday! A weekend getaway was definitely needed, and we had such a fun time!

After I posted this picture and some videos, I got so many questions about my ski wear! I bought my outfit a few years ago from Athleta, and after searching, they don’t have these exact pieces anymore. But I found some chic and trendy options below for your next weekend on the slopes!!

Goggles: Similar here // Gloves: Similar here

How chic is this jacket?? It comes in black, olive and grey, and a few colors are on sale! Find it here!

This jacket might not look warm, but the Primaloft Eco insulation will keep you warm on the slopes all day! Find it here!

These are the cutest ski pants! They are made for medium and high impact workouts in cold weather, so even though they aren’t like the normal thick and bulky pants, you’ll still be warm all day. If you’re worried they won’t be warm enough, wear a pair of leggings underneath and you’ll be good to go! Find them here!

And they come in black here!

Beauty Edit: R+R Mask by Summer Fridays

This weekend, my sister and I took our mom to a ski resort to celebrate her birthday! We obviously indulged in lots of food, cocktails and outdoor activities all weekend. We had the best time, but between the winter cold, alcohol and not much sleep, my skin wasn’t too happy with me!

So after some much needed R+R on the slopes and at the resort, my skin needed the R+R mask from Summer Fridays!

The R+R mask is a face mask and face oil in one, and it’s exactly what my dull and dry skin needed after this weekend. The ingredients, including ground wild rose powder, which buffs away dead skin cells, and natural oils, including argan, sesame, avocado and grape seed oil (among others), left my skin feeling polished and it looked noticeably brighter. You can follow this mask with a moisturizer. I used my L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream, and my skin felt good as new! I’m definitely going to add this to my skincare routine, and alternate between this and the Fresh Sugar Face Polish on the days I exfoliate.

Long, Oversized Coats

Someone once said, “A coat is a first impression to make on someone.” I couldn’t agree more. I have an obsession with fall and winter coats. I love how it pulls together any outfit. Lately, I’ve been crushing on oversized coats for the winter. Not only does it keep your whole body warm, it leaves a lot of room for layering under. It also just looks fabulous! The Vince coat I am wearing in the picture is sold out. However, I linked some of my top picks for spring- light neutral pastels. (Anyone else excited for spring?!)

Also- Check out my white accessories linked in the picture!

Coat: Vince (sold out) // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Booties: Stuart Weitzman (Bella Hadid wore these boots… just saying…)

PVC Sandals FTW!

For the last few years, PVC sandals and flip flops (or jellys as Ken likes to call them!) have been my go-to sandals for the pool and vacations. Not only are they comfortable, but they are very durable, especially in the water, sun and sand.

The pink pair I’m wearing in the below pic from our vacation this week are Valentino. While they aren’t cheap, I’ve had them for over 3 years and they still look new! I wear them all the time in summer and on vacations, so to me, they’re worth the price based on the cost per wear alone.

Check out some other cute options below!

I’ve been eyeing this color for a while now (I hope my husband is reading this because Valentine’s Day is coming up😉). You might as well take the plunge and buy these now before they go up in price again (they went up $50 within the last few years). I normally wear a 7-7.5 US, and I purchase this brand in a 38. Check them out here.

If you’re looking for a less expensive PVC flip flop, I would definitely recommend MELISSA. Most are under $60, and they have really cute styles and colors. They only come in whole sizes, so I purchase size 8. Buy these ones here.

These cute slides are the ones Ken is wearing in the photo above! They are Cat & Jack from Target, and they also come in pink. Get them here.

These are similar to the adult MELISSA flip flops above. They are MEL by MELISSA kids Harmonic Bow Flip Flops, and you can buy them here.

Schutz Obsessed

This blog post is solely dedicated to one of my favorite shoe brands: Schutz!! Not only are there shoes well made, but they look more expensive than they actually are. They tend to run from about $170 and up, but they frequently have sales, so you’re sure to score a pair for under $100.

CI have a few styles of pumps, flats, high heel sandals and even flat sandals. All of them are comfortable, and in my opinion, well worth the price tag! Check out some great options by Schutz below!

I bought these last summer and wore them more than I would like to admit! They went with everything! Check them out here.

I love the detail on this classic pump. These can be found here.

I love this style, because they can easily be dressed up or down! These can be found here.

And they look so similar to these Manolo Blahnik’s!

And if you’re looking for a pop of color, they also come in beige and neon yellow!

Find them here.

DITA Eyewear

As someone who needs to wear glasses every day, the quality and style of my frames are important to me. When I was younger, I tended to get the flashy designer frames because I thought they were “trendy” but really they were poorly made and didn’t last long.

My best friend, who also happens to be my eye doctor, introduced me to DITA Eyewear 3 years ago, and I haven’t looked back since!! All of their frames, both optical and sunglasses, are beautifully made, and the designs are like no other. DITA is definitely considered luxury eyewear, but the branding is discreet, which is perfect for a corporate environment. You KNOW they are high-end, luxury glasses, without the logo being plastered on the sides!

Check out some beautiful frames below!

You can find my glasses here: DITA VIDA

I’ve been eyeing these rose gold and silver frames forever! Dr. LP…I think these might be my next purchase😁 Find them here: DITA ARISE

I love the shape of this frame, and the tortoise pattern is subtle and classy! Find them here: DITA LACQUER

Check out other styles, optical and sun, for men and women on!
