Michael Kors

A Casual NYE

Hi Friends,

I hope your holidays were extra special!  We had so much fun and joy spending time with family and friends.  

Mr. Silver and I are having a quiet NYE at the beach with dinner scheduled at our favorite restaurant on the water tonight.  So my outfit reflects the casual day ahead.  The t-shirt is one of my favorite Christmas gifts, from my daughter and SIL, custom made from Thug Life Shirts!  It reads "my favorite people call me Nannie!" LOVE!!  My cardigan is vintage J Crew, in metallic silver, paired with my "holy" denim jeans and fun silver metallic Michael Kors shoes.  Check out the photos below for links!

I don't know how you felt about this crazy year of 2016, but I plan to take all the great memories into 2017 and leave the rest behind.  Cheers to 2017 being the best year ever!!

As always... thanks for reading!

"Cabernet" Sweater

Hi Friends,

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  Ours was quiet this year...but much needed as we have been on the go all fall and are now ready for the busy holiday season.

When you live in the South, you understand the need to layer when you dress.  The day can start around 30 degrees and end up around 75.  For this reason,  I love merino sweaters.  They are lighter (can be layered) and breath.  I found this pretty Madewell Merino wool sweater in Cabernet, on sale for $39.95.  It comes in 4 additional colors and is a great wardrobe staple.  I paired this with Chico's So Slimming jeans... so comfortable (if you ate too much turkey.)

I love boots but do not to wear them when it's warm. So every fall when I add staples to my wardrobe, there is usually a pair or two of new flats.  This year one of my adds were these Michael Kors patent leather flats.  I have worn them with numerous outfits as they go with everything, are super comfy and are great quality.  These are also in the outfit plans, when I host a few holiday parties at home!

Are you ready for the holiday hustle?  Yikes!  Know you are not alone for the panic to set in!!  My advice is a nice cabernet and chill... by the water, the fire or wherever you are happiest!  Maybe even surfing the web, for those cyber Monday bargains!  

As always, thanks for reading,
