Give your winter wardrobe a break from black and a breathe of fresh air with all white! Now that our February heat wave has come to a halt and there should be a light dusting of snow in Denver today, it’s the perfect time to try the monochromatic color coding in a palette of winter white.
This past weekend, Scott and I spent a long weekend in New York City. We’re lucky enough to have friends who live in the city and they always show us a good time, taking us to historical bars, hip restaurants and recommending fun tourist activities a little off the beaten path. For those without friends in NYC, here’s my long-weekend guide to New York City.
Scott and I are headed to The Big Apple! We have a ton of great activities planned including a viewing of The Jimmy Fallon Show, hanging with one of my best friends from college and lots of culinary delights. And while it may seem like Spring in Denver, NYC is a bit colder and the forecast is even predicting some snow flurries while we’re there. See my selections for everything you need to pack for a long winter weekend in the city!

I’m finally getting around to posting about our trip to Chicago over New Year’s Eve. I don’t know where January has gone, but life seems to be moving incredibly fast these days. January was a terrific month filled with lots of time spent with friends, naps, Netflix and relaxation, and the Broncos kicking butt all the way to the Super Bowl!!!! Woot! Woot!
New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and I’ve teamed up with June Ruby to provide a little outfit inspiration for when the ball drops!
We’ll be welcoming 2016 in with friends in Chicago. Scott and I will be in town for one of my sorority sister’s weddings, the wonderful Kate of Kel + Kate – a fashion and lifestyle blog based out of The Windy City. And since we’ll be in Chicago for her winter wedding, we figured we might as well spend a night out on the town for New Year’s Eve.

We spent this past weekend in Vail, Colorado. It snowed pretty much the entire time we were there which made it all that more magical. It was the perfect mini-getaway, just me and the hubs.
To celebrate the start of the holiday season, my friend Katie and I took time to attend the Champagne Cascade at The Brown Palace…. a champagne-lover’s paradise.
This weekend was spent running around prepping for Thanksgiving and I enjoyed every second of it. I absolutely love the holidays and I couldn’t be more excited to be hosting our family again. This year will be the third consecutive year that we’ve hosted Thanksgiving and it’s becoming one of my favorite traditions.
The temperatures have really dropped here in Denver, so it’s time to bundle. And nothing screams wintry warmth like a Fair Isle sweater. It’s the perfect layer to cozy up in.
