Holiday Decor

Our new home is mostly french country with some modern and industrial accents, where our previous home was slightly more modern with urban undertones. So this year for our first holiday season in Connecticut, I wanted new decor that complimented the gray and white color scheme without adding the fussy, traditional plaids, golds, and red and green. I did most of our holiday home shopping at Pottery Barn, a perennial favorite, and got some great sales.

a perfect accent for the holiday mantel

cozy and cute faux-fur stockings in cream for everyone (including baby V)

faux-fur tree skirt to compliment the color scheme in the house

silver flames-less candles, a must for a a home with a toddler!

Holiday Wish List

Its never too early to begin a wish list for the upcoming holidays! And with Nordstrom's amazing holiday gift sets, I've been in the spirit since early October :)

1. Makeup

I am loving the YSL Rouge shine formula, So I'd love a few more in my stocking, like No.48 (plum) and No.49 (Rose St. Germain). You also can't go wrong with this trio of glosses from YSL so add that to the list. Finally, I'd like this concealer from Cle de Peau, which I can't buy for myself with its $70 price tag. When the baby arrives Ill need the best under eye concealer money can buy.

2. Body

Who doesnt love Kiehls? I would love the large size of this body lotion which is worth every penny of its $48. My pregnant skin deserves it.

3. Accessories

On the daily, I lug my LV never-full, and I really do love it. But I'd like a new tote for 2017, with a more palatable price tag, like the Tory Burch Perry Tote in a fresh color like navy. Id also like another gold bar necklace with our new son's name engraved, like I have for my Tuck.

Maternity Friendly Finds

The numerous emails announcing large percentage off sales at some of my favorite retailers have been nearly intolerable lately (Loft and Ann Taylor, I'm looking at you). My will power at 28+ weeks pregnant is only so strong. So I caved, and order a bunch of things that I can wear now, and later as well. I am not a big fan of maternity clothing so these pieces give me my usual style without the ill-fitting, baggy and constantly falling associated with most maternity pieces.

Loft cape for less than $40

Cozy Loft open front, perfect for Thanksgiving over a cute tank

Cannot resist the speckled gray and the draped sleeve on this Loft sweater ($59)

This olive tweed moto style came out to be under $100 with thew Ann sale

My fav new blouse of the season- got this with 50% off at Ann Taylor!

I have this in plain black from Loft last winter so the updated color is a must, $98
