    46. 5 Easy Holiday Style Updates

    Getting dressed for all your holiday events doesn't have to mean a complete wardrobe
    overhaul. With a few simple style updates you'll be ready for every event that comes
    your way!

    Quick! You’ve been invited to another holiday soiree – what are you going to wear? This
    question just may strike fear in the hearts of many this season. The holidays can be
    overwhelming enough, but add in multiple occasions for ‘holiday dress’ and it can be enough to
    make you want to hide behind all the black pants hanging in your closet and wait until
    December 26th.

    Let me let you in on a few stylist secrets! First, dressing for the holidays can be easier than you
    think! Instead of feeling that you need to run out and buy a brand new wardrobe, focus on a
    few small pieces that can transform your most basic pieces into something fabulous!
    Sometimes it’s the small things that can have a big impact, so focus in on those few pieces that
    can work with what’s already in your wardrobe to transform it into something that’s perfect for
    your next invite.

    What’s great about the holidays is that most occasions call for what I like to call ‘Christmas
    casual’. While you may have some dressier events, Christmas casual is perfect for open houses,
    caroling, dinners with friends and many holiday parties. Focus your efforts here and you’ll
    always have several go-to options when that unexpected invitation arrives!

    1/ Three is the Magic Number
    Adding in a third layer to a simple top and pants can be transformational and the power of the
    third layer is a wonderful thing to tap into this time of year for an easy addition of both holiday
    cheer, as well as warmth. But don’t wear just any old thing – try something that has some
    pizzazz and panache. A faux fur vest, liquid leather jacket or blazer in holiday jewel tones can
    be added to most tops already in your closet, as well as a few dresses, and will have you fielding
    compliments left and right.

    2/ Faux Real – Why not top your look off with a faux fur collar, wrap or jacket? Just adding this
    simple piece over your top, dress or even your basic black coat can transform it into something
    far more special. It elevates the most basic outfit and turns it into something special, making it
    greater than the sum of its parts.

    3/ All That Glitters – While jewelry that sparkles can add a lot to your look, why not try a top or
    sweater with the bling already built in? Try a rhinestone-studded sweater with your best pair of jeans or trousers and booties and see how it can elevate your look in an instant! It brings light
    to your face and makes you shine! Just add your fave bottoms and you’re set.

    4/ Pop of Pink – Whether it’s blush, cranberry, fuschia or wine, adding a little pink is a chic and updated way to look festive. Pink has been a hot color for 2021 and its been all the rage for so
    many reasons. Try it with your black, with camel or with winter white and gold for a gorgeous
    and unexpected look! Blush faux fur, bright pink top under a jacket or a fabulous pink top is all
    you need to look festive this season.

    5/ Down Under – Why let the upper half of your body have all the fun? Swapping out your
    basic jeans or black pants for something a little more festive can make your look Christmas
    casual in no time flat! Try faux suede or coated jeans in black or a chic pattern for some serious
    fun, or add in a pair of metallic printed pants to add a little sparkle to your ensemble.

    Dressing for all your holiday events doesn’t have to be overwhelming. With a few tricks up your
    sleeve, your friends will wonder if you secretly have a stylist on speed dial!

    44. 7 Everyday Habits to Bring Ease and Joy to your Day

    Aristotle said “We are what we repeatedly do.”
    Our life is the result of our habits. Not the things we do every once in a
    while, but those things we do day in and day out. These habits are what
    create our results.
    Our habits can support us during a busy time, provide comfort and they can
    free us up to go through our day with ease. When we’re freed up from
    having to make a decision at every turn, life is just more enjoyable.
    In this episode we discuss:
    The importance of having routines and habits The negative side effects of NOT having routines My 7 habits for success How creating routines in your day can save you time, money AND

    42. What To Wear For Thanksgiving

    42. What To Wear For Thanksgiving

    “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you
    don’t have you’ll never, ever have enough.” - Oprah

    What you wear on Thanksgiving Day can help you determine what kind of day you have. While
    it’s not about the clothes, it’s about HOW the clothes make you feel – relaxed rather than
    uptight; calm versus chaotic; and fabulous rather than frumpy.

    There are many things that go into a family dinner, and wearing something that can help you to
    flex your superpowers of staying calm in the midst of a storm goes a long way towards creating
    a day that’s memorable for all the right reasons. You’ve ordered your turkey, planned your
    menu and are prepping for guests. But have you planned your outfit?

    A good Thanksgiving outfit should accomplish three things:
    help you to feel confident feel comfortable no matter what you eat and – most importantly – help to ground you so that you stay calm, cool and collected
    no matter what meltdowns are happening around you. Juggling multiple sides, relatives running late, your husband burning the turkey, a spat between
    your siblings, Uncle G. arriving a bit tipsy….many things can go wrong on a day that is meant to
    express our gratitude. Your clothes can be like armor, providing a source of comfort and
    protection against all the outside influences around you. You may not be able to control what
    happens around you, but you can control how you feel – and that starts with feeling confident,
    comfortable and grounded in your clothes.

    Here’s how:

    1/ Choose something you LOVE!
    It’s no secret that when you wear something you love, it just makes you feel good! It helps you
    to be more connected to who you are and boosts your confidence like crazy. This confidence
    will carry you through the day and remind you of the amazing woman you are – thereby
    potentially preventing you from losing your cool when your in-laws arrive and demand that
    their dishes take up the entire oven.

    2/ Pants that you can eat in
    As one of our models recently proclaimed about her new favorite pair of pants, “I can eat in
    these.” This is your mantra. Some of our picks include leggings and jeans from Liverpool that
    are so comfy we can do yoga in them – and that will NOT leave you having to unbutton after
    that second piece of pie.
    3/ Accessorize with Ease
    Adding in just the right necklace, earrings or scarf will take your look to new heights while
    keeping things simple and understated. Thanksgiving is not the time to pile on the accessories,
    so a little goes a long way.

    4/ Layers
    Being indoors with a group of people means the temperature will probably fluctuate. Wearing
    layers allows you to be prepared for lounging in front of a roaring fire, stepping outside on the
    deck or enjoying an afternoon stroll with ease. This is NOT the time to wear your fleece lined
    leggings or your heaviest sweater. Think light layers that give you options and you’ll be much
    less grumpy than if you had to suffer in silence.

    5/ Footloose and Fancy Free
    I’ll admit I’m not a big fan of wearing shoes in the house, so I’ll most likely be barefoot on
    Thanksgiving day. If you’re the hostess, you could consider wearing some cute slippers or
    mules that look chic but can easily slip off if you desire.

    If you’re a guest, choose something low-key for a meal at home rather than your over-the-knee
    boots or your spiky heels. I’m a big fan of low-heeled or wedge booties, athleisure sneakers,
    flats or mid-calf boots. Be sure to wear cute socks in case you want to take them off!

    With these tips you’re bound to master your Thanksgiving outfit in no time flat! Feeling good
    means you have more time to enjoy those around you and to focus on why you’re actually
    together in the first place. Take time to give thanks for those you love AND for the amazing
    woman that YOU have become. You’ve got this! Bon appetit.
