It's so easy to fall into a rut this time of year! I find myself defaulting to jeans, or only wearing black and gray. I loved this colorful maxi skirt so much this summer, and thought, "why not bust it out again now?!" The colorful print has a sunny effect on my day, as does the cheerful yellow coat, and the chunky sweater is super warm. (I discovered that wearing your jacket "draped" can actually be really practical... like when your sweater is so chunky that it won't fit inside the sleeves, ha!) It's certainly a fun look to break me out of denim repeats!

Today's Everyday Fashion: Two Winter Coats at Santa's Farm

Only a couple weeks until Christmas, and we still didn't have a tree! So we headed up to Santa's Farm in Eustis, FL to pick one out. While were there, we snapped several outfit photos that I'll be sharing over the next few weeks. With temps in the 40-50 degree range, it made for the perfect wintery backdrop (okay... wintery for Florida anyway!!). Today's looks are the same outfit twice - only the coat was switched, from ivory to red. It's crazy how different they look with that one little change, and honestly I'm sharing both because I couldn't decide which one I liked better! The outfit recipe here that I'm taking away: pairing a stripe sweater and a plaid scarf is easy print mixing, and it could work with any color combo. Which coat do you like best with this look?

I am so totally smitten with these gorgeous dresses from Ever Pretty!! I may need to commit to a few more holiday events just so I have enough occasions to wear all of them!! 

Ever Pretty is truly one of the best resources I’ve ever seen on the 'net to find the “look for less” - for the holidays, bridesmaids, for a wedding guest, you name it. I’ve reviewed Ever Pretty several times over the years and the dresses just keep getting better (quality, cut, fabric) with every order!
