Happy Monday guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! Is anyone else feeling like Less Monday, More Sunday?

If you are starting to think joggers are giving my denim collection a run for it’s money, you are right haha. Something happens to me in the winter and I just want to be in cozy clothes all the time! I love having pieces that can go from the sofa to the street ;). I’ve been wearing these grey joggers on repeat! Add a few accessories like a knit beanie or a chunky scarf pull your cozy look together to make it perfect for running errands.

Cody and I have started doing weekly Facebook Live’s on Sunday night. If you missed them, you can see yesterday’s here. We talked about 7 things you need to do this Holiday season!

5 Gourmet Hot Cocoa Recipes

Happy Sunday guys! I hope you all have been having the best weekend! This week in Utah we had our first real snow fall. The kids loved playing in the snow all weekend and it was so fun to experience their excitement. Due to the colder weather we have stayed extra bundled up and the kids love to warm up with some hot chocolate after being outside, can you blame them?! I found some really yummy recipes on pinterest that I’m obsessed with – I can’t wait to try them all!

How beautiful are these heels!! Obsessed with all things velvet!

1. With a moto jacket & joggers: There’s something about swapping our your jeans for joggers that gives you a little more freedom to bare some skin in a cropped sweater. The athleisure trend is all about cropped tops right now, so you can pull in that sporty vibe with joggers but still keep your look polished with a cozy cropped sweater and heels (this velvet pair last seen in this post). Throw on a moto jacket for a look you can take from day to date night.

2. Layered with a tee: Don’t cross cropped sweaters off your list just because you don’t want to bare your midriff! I’m obsessed with this cozy cropped turtleneck (on sale under $50). Layer it over a long tee to add some texture and dimension to your look or over a button-down and trousers for an office-ready outfit.

3. With all things high-waisted: When in doubt, just throw your cropped sweater over anything high-waisted. That peek-a-boo is the perfect balance when you are worried about baring too much but still want to show a little skin or layer a tight tank underneath to keep it conservative. I love this chunky turtleneck with this metallic pleated skirt (ON SALE UNDER $100) – such a cozy combo for the holidays! You can also layer it over your favorite bodycon or slip dresses this season for something equally feminine and flirty.

Below are a few more of my favorite ways to wear your cropped knits this season! Hope you guys all have a great weekend – can you believe it’s already December!?
