Glam Cabin with Dentz Denim

YASSSSS! Its Christmas time, and I FINALLY have all my decorations up. With the help of my fabulous family I did a major overhaul on my Christmas decor. I wanted to change my Christmas decor theme from “Inherited from my Mother” to “Glam Cabin.” Now, this new theme includes, plaid, glitter, and fur. Basically my 3 favorite things, to wear and decorate with! Of course I pinned 1000 things on Pinterest and carefully curated a vision for my Christmas decor. But what really is the point of all the home decor if you aren’t going to have something fabulous to wear with it on Christmas morning?

What are you wearing on Christmas morning? Have you thought about it? Well, if you haven’t then think about a cute slouchy sweatshirt and some leggings. Every year, I wish and wish I had some cute and cozy little outfit to wear on Christmas morning, and every year I am a loser and I end up in some lame ass PJ’s that aren’t cute and don’t look festive AT ALL. Well this year, is going to be different because I have a slouchy Christmas sweatshirt from Dentz Denim. I am not going to be lame, I am going to be freaking adorable.

This cute little top would also be complete perfection with skinnies and some boots to go holiday shopping, or to pick that perfect Christmas tree. Do you have an ugly sweater party coming up? This slouchy sweatshirt would be perfect for that, maybe with some Ponte pants, and some booties. Just enough sass, and so comfortable. Rock it girl!

Some of my other favorites from Dentz Denim

  1. Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal
  2. Happy Holla Days
  3. Wifey
  4. Merry Crustmas

Poncho Style

What is not to love about a poncho, easy to wear, super cute and so on trend right now. A poncho is a great way to add another layer to your look while amping up the cozy factor. I am sure I have shared in the past my love of cozy looks.

When styling a Poncho, you need to balance the loose fit of the poncho with fitted clothing underneath. That can come in the form of some leggings and boots, or a shear top and skinny jeans. A poncho can be the perfect piece of light outerwear to throw on when Christmas shopping, when I head into the Mall I hate wearing my big bulky coat, but its to cold to go without something. A poncho is the perfect piece of outerwear that will keep you looking chic, and warm enough to get in and out of the Mall during the Holidays.

Poncho options-

Dotted Line Poncho

Bonfire Poncho

Cardigan Poncho

Cable Knit Poncho

Hooded Blanket Cape

 Right now, my favorite Ponchos are coming from Loft. AND TODAY they are all 50% off!

The New Neutral

Ahh, this pink is so so gorgeous, its the perfect Marie Antoinette meets Mean Girls pink. A fantastic shade on virtually anyone, AND its so in for Fall and Winter! I really happened to stumble upon this entire outfit, you know how sometimes things just really come together? That is this outfit for me, the bag was an LA Neiman’s find, the Jeans are classic leggings, booties are last year from Dr. Scholls of all places, the scarf is a last minute I need a scarf and I happen to be at TJ Maxx find, and the top was a Nordstrom Rack 80% grab. IN FACT I have the same tunic top in green and gray(which I did pay full price for…boo).

In case you happen to be wondering. MY pumpkins and fall stuff is still out, because I don’t start Christmas until AFTER Thanksgiving. So. There.

Back to this pink, super easy and glam to pair with creams and whites. Pastel pink is the new neutral for me. From sunnies to tunics, its easy to wear but just lends that little extra “I am sassier than I look” vibe. Perfect for every woman I know.

Pink Options-

  1. NYDJ Cowl Neck Sweater
  2. Melissa McCarthy Crystal Shoulder Tunic Top
  3. Short Sleeve Lace Top
  4. Chiffon Blouse with Openwork 
  5. Lacy Blouse with Bell Sleeves

Sweaters and Skinnies Pt. 2

My new favorite outfit of all time. The softest sweater ever, plaid and some skinny jeans. Now I know what you might be thinking, um hello that outfit does NOT show off your curvaceous bod Anne. I agree, but its so soft and comfortable. This sweater is relaxed and falls easily over my flannel and curves. I wanted to balance this sweater with some skinny jeans that are very fitted. I wore this particular look with wedge booties, but it would also work great with some riding boots. When shopping for a sweater that you want to layer with, really consider how its going to lay over the top of the button up you have in mind. I like a looser look, so I sized up in the sweater.

I love BIG jewelry, so I picked a bold statement necklace to pair with the sweater and skinnies. But smaller subtle accessories would be just as chic.

How do you layer your sweaters in the Fall?

Sweater Options-

  1. Loft Relaxed V-Neck
  2. Loft Fauxmere Sweater
  3. BB Dakota “Karen” Long Sleeve
  4. Merona Womens Pullover Sweater

Sweaters and Skinnies

Its that time of year again. Where you find yourself getting ready to walk out the door in morning and you question if you need to grab that coat or not. I put off the inevitable “Coat” weather for the longest that I can bear it. I love to layer my look with sweaters, scarves and heavier fabrics through the fall. My down coat doesn’t see the light of day until December. I will dutifully wear my big down coat from December to March 1. Then all bets are off, I go back to layering and boycott “Coat” weather once again.

Sweaters and Skinnies, I know you have both in your closet. These two staple items for the Fall Fashionista can be whatever you want them to be, cozy, sexy, or relaxed. I like to pair my skinnies with everything from riding boots, to moccasins. But when I want to lend my look a sexier vibe I grab my wedge booties, effortlessly chic and comfortable the wedge bootie can really lend that cozier look a sexy vibe. AND WHO DOESNT WANT TO FEEL SEXY!

Some Skinny Jean Options-

  1. Not Your Daughters Jeans “Alina” Skinny
  2. Poetic Justice “Maya” Stretch Skinny
  3. Loft Curvy Sateen Five Pocket Jegging
  4. Loft Curvy High Waist Skinny

Adams Halloween Bash

So I have been planning a Halloween party for months, and I had it all planned perfectly. In my mind the weather was going to perfect! I had planned a tent with these amazing lights, and decorations, a bonfire, a hayride. My home and property would be full of people dressed in fantastic costumes on a beautiful Fall evening. We would bob for apples and drink to much mulled wine. This party that I had planned was perfection. THEN, real life smacked me in the head. It was going to RAIN. And not just a light sprinkle, like TORRENTIAL down pour. I had all these decorations that I had obsessively selected, I mean I committed an entire Pinterest board to this event. I had centerpieces that I had designed and a Photo Booth that I created from scratch. At this point I was so bummed over the rain that I just didn’t even have a second plan in place, my hubby stepped in and completely cleaned out his barn, and prepped it for me to host my event in.

Now you may be thinking, damn that is so redneck, and at first I really though that it would be that way. But somehow we pulled off a fantastic halloween bash right in the barn. I didn’t even notice the rain. I took some photos of what I put together in the house, but not in the barn of my decorations(I ran out of time when the party got going). I had a fantastic Photo Booth, that really was a hit at the party. Super easy to make and was so fun!

I used two big pieces of butcher paper, some black and red paint. I taped the paper together and sketched out the block lettering, then just some free hand painting, and voila! We had a Photo Booth back drop. I took pictures with my camera, and set up a construction light to make sure there was plenty of lighting. Curls and Contours, Halloween Party

I shopped mostly JoAnn’s and TJ Maxx for my decorations. I was really able to put together some great stuff AND get some fantastic deals!

Curls and Contours, Halloween Party

I picked up these decorations at JoAnn Fabrics for 70% off just a couple of days before the party! I saved over 300 dollars on everything!

The skull garland I found at Marshalls, they are fantastic BUT the bulbs broke really easy, boo.

The Wicked table runner was a TJ Maxx find, and of course we had some Michigan wine.

Curls and Contours, Halloween Party, Fiestaware

My pumpkin came from Home Goods, and the candlesticks were a wedding gift(they are Fiestaware). The adorable Tooth of Troll, and Bat Wing candles came from JoAnns they smelled like vanilla.

Curls and Contours, Forrest Gump Costume

We shopped Amazon for our costumes, I am a big fan of putting together your own costume and not buying a bag costume. Forrest and Jenny Gump, my hubby has been growing this beard, so he opted for the running across the country version of Forrest Gump, I went for the Hippie Jenny look. A post drug addict/pre HIV Jenny Gump was really the look I was trying for.

Curls and Contours, Forrest and Jenny

Because the party was outdoors, I had to think of ways to stay warm, without losing the look of my costume. So I grabbed a Faux Shearling coat, and some Figure Skater nude tights(perfect because they are thick and warm)and . Once our barn got warmed up I took off the coat. This dress came from Amazon, and was perfect for the whole look. For makeup and hair, I had to do a flower crown, I got a blowout and then had my hair curled and bangs parted in  70’s style. I went big with blue eyeshadow.

Dentz Denim

My Halloween Bash went down last night, and currently I am on the couch with a tea, and Sleepy Hollow on Hulu. I just want to be cozy today, so naturally I am in my favorite new sweatshirt from Dentz Denim. Its slouchy fit works perfectly with leggings, and later when I drag myself to the grocery store my favorite sneakers and vest will be on point with this adorable top.

Dentz Denim sent me this sweatshirt to try out, and I am IN LOVE, if being a “Wifey” isn’t  for you, your are in luck because they have hundreds of designs!!

All The Plaids

In the fall I find myself gravitating toward cozy fabrics and plaid. I crave cardigans, vests, and flannels.

I have this thing for cream fuzzy cardigans, every time I see one in a store I instantly want to have it. 99% of the time they aren’t flattering one me. So bummed. But I do have success with vests, I love a good vest and this year I finally indulged in the coveted J Crew style vest. I went with a plaid black vest, which initially I didn’t want. I thought that I needed a plain black vest, but a friend urged me to go with a black pattern and I am so glad that I did. Stepping outside of my comfort zone I have really been playing with pattern mixing.

Pattern mixing is so in right now, take a chance and step out of your comfort zone. Try that pattern vest, or jacket!

Here are some outerwear options with a little more sass!

  1. Lucky Brand
  2. Target Puffer Vest
  3. Old Navy Quilted
  4. Poncho
  5. Ralph Lauren

In Heaven Its Fall All the Time

 

Have you seen the colors, I mean its so beautiful and inspiring. I had to stop and snap some photos today of my favorite town. The colors are so vibrant its hard to look away. I happen to be wearing my favorite coatigan today that I have talked about before on Curls and Contours, but it sold out. Boo. I am attaching some options for you to get a similar look.

Coatigan Options-

  1. Colorblocked Coatigan
  2. Side Slit Duster
  3. Star Print
  4. Melissa McCarthy Snowflake

In the fall you can not go wrong with this simple outfit formula- boots, skinny pants, chambray, cardigan, scarf. Its THAT SIMPLE. So trendy and chic and effortlessly comfortable.

Don’t you just want a mug of warm apple cider, and a big chunky scarf when you look at these photos? All the feels.
