Travel Talk

638 850 Melissa Mayer

With March around the corner, we are having a major travel itch! Do you guys have travel plans coming up? Lately, I have been so inspired when traveling to pack simply and pack things that I know are comfortable, versatile, and easy. It sounds obvious, but focusing on this makes a big difference in my overall travel mindset.

Traveling is such a sweet experience- a chance to explore a new place, revisit a favorite spot, and connect with whoever you are traveling with. It is so important to me that my mind and heart are in a relaxed, joyful place when traveling so that I get to fully embrace the special time away. When I start the travel process by simply packing tried & true items (favorite denim jacket, easy breezy joggers, comfortable sneaks, forever white tee, and a great hat), I find that it sets a peaceful tone for the whole trip and helps me focus on the journey that I am about to go on, rather that what I am bringing along.

What do you guys think? How does your packing strategy affect your travel?

Comfy Clothes To Live In

Who else has been living in comfy clothes lately? The winter season definitely brings upon an urge and desire for coziness, comfort, and relaxation and comfy clothes fit that bill perfectly. We rounded up some New Year’s Eve outfit ideas last week for the party-goers and dinner dates, but this post is for those that have a movie date at-home planned. From joggers to slouchy sweatshirts and comfortable yet pretty bralettes, scroll down to see a list of comfy clothes to live in. Wear them to ring-in the New Year at home or stock up for nights-in and slow mornings in January and February. Enjoy xo

NYE LOOKS

With Christmas in less than a week, we all know that New Year’s Eve is right around the corner. Below are a few things that we are loving for NYE looks, depending on your plans. We’ll be doing a comfy clothes round-up next week if your plans are to stay in with some yummy food and a glass of wine or two 🙂 Today’s round-up though is for the ladies who have a fancy soiree to attend. We are loving a variety of metallics, different textures, and of course anything black- the epitome and classic and chic. A gorgeous shade of yellow-gold also has our hearts this year and looks so elegant when paired with black. Let us know what you are planning to wear in the comments and feel free to share any links to things that you are loving. xo

Dressed-Up In December

1024 683 Melissa Mayer

There is something about getting dressed-up in December that just feels right. Of course there are days though that wearing jeans, oversized sweaters, and boots totally feels right, too! I love this look because to me it is dressed-up in a practical, casual way. It can totally go from lunch with the girls to a holiday get-together that night. Also, as you guys know, this hat (sold out at Free People, but similar here) and this bag (read more about my love for Cuyana, here) have been on-repeat for me lately. It is fair to say that they are my go-to accessories this season and complete almost any look, dressed-up or dressed-down. Those are the best kind of accessories- versatile, minimal, and tres chic. Scroll down for the rest of the outfit links, xo.

With gift shopping in full swing, even nearing an end soon, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite things with you guys! It’s not too late to gift these items, add them to your wishlist, or gift yourself 🙂 I can’t say enough good things about these items- they are what I find myself reaching for time and time again. From makeup wipes to sneaks to pajamas, these things are on my most-used, most-loved list. Also, check out our collection of gift guides, here. Enjoy! xo

 

December Thoughts

1024 683 Melissa Mayer

Oh, December. What a magical time of year! From cozy clothes, to comfort cooking, Christmas decor, extra time spent with family, and shorter days and longer nights, this time of year is without a doubt so special and always one that we look forward to each year.

In one way this time of year is so busy between holiday parties, gift shopping, family plans and everything else, but in another way this season is also marked by rest, relaxation, peace, and reflection. We pray that this year we prioritize time to rest in order to focus on the reason for joy this time of year.

Similar to our note about Thanksgiving and Black Friday, we believe that there is a way to exist in the “busy” without getting caught up in it. When we do this, we will have a peace that lifts us up above the chaos. We also hope that we stay close to loved ones this time of year and lean on friends and family, for that is what this time of year is designed for- rejoicing in Him with those that we love!

Sometimes the holidays can be difficult if you are experiencing a challenging season personally, and if that is the case, we are praying diligently for you and know that the Lord is wrapping his arms extra close around you with His great comfort, love, and peace.

There is a song that we are totally obsessed with right now on Hillsong Worship’s holiday album, The Peace Project, called Seasons. It is linked to Spotify there and I highly recommend listening to it. It has been on repeat lately!! It is also on our LSK Worship Playlist that we are constantly adding songs to. Here are lyrics from Seasons that we absolutely love–

I can see the promise
I can see the future
You’re the God of seasons
I’m just in the winter
If all I know of harvest
Is that it’s worth my patience
Then if You’re not done working
God I’m not done waiting

We hope that this month is a wonderful one for you and we look forward to spending it with you here on the blog! With love, xo.
