carhartt & catskills

Vest:  Gap (similar here)  |  Sweater:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Scarf:  Etsy  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Bans  |  Hat:  Carhartt  |  Turtleneck:  J.Crew  |  Denim:  Banana Republic (lighter wash here)  |  Shoes:  Hush Puppies 

Here's my last look for the 2015 season!  I've assembled another comfortable kick-it look that is perfect for errands or heading to the Catskills like I am doing for NYE!  The shoes are extremely comfortable (no lie!) and I had a hard time deciding on a color as there are so many!  Can you believe they are really Hush Puppies!?!?!  I wore this scarf tons of times over our Ireland trip as I love the orange stripe all throughout.  The Carhartt hat is also a major staple!


John and I are headed down to the Catskills for a little ski resort fun!  We're renting a house with a bunch of friends and we're looking forward to the low(er) key weekend.  So, no fancy outfit here for me this NYE!  Whew!  I've been off my game anyways with finding good dresses/fancy outfits this season and I've missed out on a few looks I've wanted to share with you.  In 2016 I hope I can prepare and plan further ahead so I'm not far behind on posts/looks (plus it'll help you, the shopper find the looks too).  I think the biggest challenge is juggling a 9-5 and our busy schedules on top of the blog, but I'm hoping to make this a bigger priority and give you a bit more variety throughout the posts.

Speaking of lack there of...I didn't do a wine down Wednesday post as John headed to bed pretty early as he's covering part of a coworker's shift as well as his own, so I figured I would just share an easy family holiday cocktail (with or without alcohol) that you could whip up for NYE festivities!  Perhaps I'll take a picture on my Instagram account so you can see what it looks like! ;)


1 46 oz can of Dole pineapple juice

1 12 oz Minute Maid lemonade juice concentrate (thawed)

1 12 oz Minute Maid orange juice concentrate (thawed)

Mix all three ingredients in a large glass bowl.  Leave room as you will fill the 46 oz can full of water and mix again.  Freeze.  Scoop out some of the frozen mixture into a tall glass.  Leave room for Ginger Ale.  Alcohol is optional.  John prefers to add his favorite whiskey.  I prefer to substitute the Ginger Ale with Prosecco or another bubbly beverage!  It's perfect for a brunch cocktail too!

Drink & Enjoy!
