All Aboard The Polar Express



Sorry for being MIA the last two days! (If you didn't see my snapchat @casuallystyled) A pipe burst in my hall bathroom resulting in major water damage throughout my entire home. Just about every ceiling, flooring and wall needed to be removed. My house is looking like a complete demolition site right now, which is so depressing, especially with Christmas next week. Thankfully, no one was injured and of course everything can be replaced. 

Sunday, my mom and sister and I, took the kids to Phillipsburg, New Jersey for a Polar Express Train Ride along the Delaware River Excursion. The train ride, set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, we enjoyed a trip complete with hot chocolate and cookies, with live singing and performances from hobos and juggling chefs. Santa made a special appearance for pictures and gave each child their own sleigh bell, just like in the movie, to those who believe! This has been a family tradition of ours for the last several years and the kids just absolutely love it! This time of year is just so magical and despite a few rough months, nothing makes me happier than seeing my kids smile. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! 

Have a great day,

Happy Monday! Today, I am excited to share a new look with you that's a bit different from my normal style. One of the reason's why I love the holiday season so much, is for the opportunity to dress up for holiday parties. I absolutely loved wearing this polka dotted tutu from Dainty Jewell's to a recent holiday party over the weekend. It's just so chic and feminine but still subtle than most tutus.

Dainty Jewell's began as a creative outlet for the founder, Charity Jewell. She designs all her pieces for women who want to dress conservative but still maintain a chic and fashionable appearance.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I am still recovering from a food coma (We had two Thanksgivings!) Saturday night, I hosted a "friendsgiving" and cooked my first ever turkey all by myself. I was quite scared to tackle such a main part of the meal but it turned out well. I'm now thinking about cooking Thanksgiving next year! 

The rest of my weekend consisted of cleaning and shopping. I'm a huge black friday shopper (as well as an anytime shopper lol). It's a tradition every year that my mom and sisters and I go out early Friday morning. I usually focus more on my kids and getting their Christmas shopping done. I have to say, I did score some pretty good deals for myself this year. Pac Sun was buy one get one free on denim, so I just couldn't resist these olive green cargo pants. Express was 50% off the entire store so I made sure to stock up on some of my favorite basics.

Shop my look below (all on sale!) and the rest of my scores from Black Friday! Happy Cyber Monday!





Have a great day!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! 

I needed a fun and playful party dress for a friend's birthday party this weekend and was surprised to find exactly what I was looking for at Target. This blush tulle skirt was calling my name  when it caught my eye and I just couldn't resist it.    I love that it was adorned with a decorative silver waistband, giving it a playful but delicate touch. The lace peasant style top added an extra touch of femininity to complete my overall party ready outfit.

Have a great day!
