Herringbone Puffer Vest

This cute puffer vest is an early Christmas present and I love how cozy it is! I'm a sucker for anything in herringbone pattern and I already have lots of styling ideas for it. Plus, it will keep me warm during this cold Minnesota winter!

Plaid & Stripes

When I got these plaid pumps I knew they's be perfect for the holidays! And I loved mixing the plaid with the stripes. Here's what I wore to church on Sunday...

I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

I've always wanted to use pink to decorate for Christmas so this year I decided to go for it, and I love how it turned out! I'm loving bottle brush trees and vintage ornaments, which were both my inspiration this year.
Warning: this post is pic heavy :)

I love the simplicity of all the trees on the mantel, but also how they still make such a statement.

The stockings all hung by the chimney with care :) I got them at Pottery Barn but they are sold out, you can find similar ones here.

I bought a bunch of bottle brush trees and bleached most of them white, then dyed some in different shades of pink. And of course I had to add some glitter to some of them too!

I made the pom pom garland to bring in some more pink and the mercury glass garland is vintage.

The trees I got at Pottery Barn a few years ago (but you can find similar ones here) and they're decorated with vintage ornaments.

More bottle brush trees, which I got here. The banner was made by one of my favorite artists, Britt Bass Turner, and I love the whimsy of it!

The sweet little deer was made by my Grandmother so it's extra meaningful and extra special to me.

More twinkle lights, a little village, and some vintage flocked deer :)

I love Christmas trees. There's something so mesmerizing about sitting next to the twinkling lights at night and it brings back so many happy childhood memories. My favorite spot in the house right now is right next to our Christmas tree.

Most of the ornaments are vintage shiny brite ornaments, but I painted little hearts on the birch slice ornaments.

I also filled these glass ornaments with lots of pretty things -- printed paper, crepe paper, tinsel, sequins and glitter.

and another cute item from Britt Bass Turner, a hand painted ornament!

And the presents! I used silver and gold wrapping paper and wrapped some yarn around them.


I love my festive holiday pillow! And the cute deer blanket was a great little find at Target.

I made the tinsel garland and strung it everywhere...on the tree and on all my picture frames. :) I'm kinda obsessed with it and want to leave it up all year long!

And a view of the room. I really love how it all came together and how it still feels neutral with little pops of pink!

So that's it! I hope you enjoyed the tour. :)

Capriccio Lace Tunic

Love this little lace tunic! The lace detail is so pretty, and it comes in more colors. And FYI, I sized up one size since I wanted a more oversized look to wear with leggings.

Sparked Tulle Skirt

My look at church this past Sunday had a lot of sparkle going on, and I loved it! Both my sweater and my skirt have pretty sparkly beads sewn into them. I love that the beading on my skirt is sewn into little woodland creatures -- owls and squirrels oh my!
