Holiday Outfit Ideas 2020 with Express

holiday outfits 2020 - coated jeans with puff shoulder sweater

Hey hey! I’m happy to have you here. Today I’m sharing some holiday outfits and gifting ideas in collaboration with Express. Since “parties” look a bit different thanks to the social distancing guidelines of 2020 I figured there might be a need for both Zoom party attire as well as the usual holiday glam style. I feel like I’ve been socially deprived this year so I think no matter how we are celebrating I’ll be glitzed out more than ever!…

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas with Loungewear to Dressy Options

When it comes to the holidays my outfit formula is very simple.   Oversized top and leggings (or jeggings).   The oversized top or sweater and elastic waist allow you to embrace the FEAST of the holidays. You could even do a loose-fitting, but flattering sweater dress. From there I decide on how comfortable and accessorized I want to be. Booties are a great way to stay comfortable or you can add a pair of pumps if your holiday dinner is fancy.  My family has…

Easy Apple Pie Recipe (courtesy of my friend Lori)

easy apple pie recipe

As promised here is a super simple fall pie recipe I’ve been making for years. Using a premade crust saves me a lot of time. My mother in law and many other bakers will be appalled that I never opt to make my own pie crust. If you do – hats off! This simple apple pie recipe will take a bit longer but will be even more delish! Special thanks to my friend Lori for sharing this easy apple pie…
