Ugly Christmas sweaters!

I love Christmas time and wearing an “Ugly” Christmas Sweater! Now I know that right now there is much debate about when Christmas time actually starts. I am not here to debate that, let it start when you want! I am here to show you how to dress for it when you choose!

That being said an UGS(Ugly Christmas Sweater) can be chic and fashionable as well as outlandish!

I have put together a few looks to show you how to achieve a chic way to wear the classic UGS!

Until next time, stay chic dolls 💜

Classic: Denim and a Sweater!!

Hey dolls,

I hope all is well with you! Last weekend I had a party to attend and with little ones then we added a few surprises I had to take on so I was running late. I made the mistake of not laying out an outfit the night before which put me in a pinch. I decided to rely on a classic set Denim and a sweater!

Now in my last blog you have seen me wear a pair of similar pants. I have really been attracted to the vintage pairs lately! So much so I bought several pairs in the same style!

To achieve this classic look find a pair of comfy high waisted jeans and cozy sweater! I added kitten heels for a chic addition!

Have a wonderful weekend!

A Touch of Nostalgia!

If you’ve noticed everything old appears to be new again! TV and movie reboots of the classics have been happening left and right. Of course with this renewal vintage clothing has been becoming steadily rising in popularity!

I love the fact that chic high rise styles are in because they are flattering on my mom figure since I just had a baby 4 months ago!

I decided to pair my stonewashed high-waisted jeans with a Saved By The Bell T-shirt to give it a super vintage feel!

I hope you all are enjoying your day! Have a happy week ahead!

Thanksgiving Attire 🧡

Thanksgiving as you well know is this Thursday! If you still find yourself unsure of what to wear I have a few ideas that will hopefully ease those worries. Now I know we are only going to be walking from the living room to The dining room to the basement and back again! However, it’s great to look good while doing it!

My go-to is a maxi dress! A maxi allows you to move around freely and not worry too much about being cold. If you’re in a super cold climate like me(Minnesota) you should still opt for tights; however the long length adds that extra layer of warmth! Photo Credit: J.Crew.comPhoto Credit: J. Crew.com

Spaghetti-strap cha-cha maxi dress in leopard print

Another personal favorite is the versatile midi dress! It’s long enough to say “hey I’m fancy” yet at the same time is short enough to were you aren’t having to walk around holding your dress up!

Classic lace is always an option! A lace dress is perfect for being your dressy go-to! You know that you’ll instantly feel fancy when you slip on a lace dress!

Pleats are feminine and flirty and make an understated yet chic statement!

A slip dress is a great versatile option and would be perfect with a sweater layered over it! Make sure the sweater is a bit slouchy so go up a size if needed!
Note: Technical Glitch! For whatever reason the link to the slip dress and sweater below are at the top of the post! Both from J. Crew!

Nevereven seamed satin slip dress $98

Jeweled embellished Fair Isle crewneck sweater $120

If you really want to go all out opt for a sequined number!

Cool Girl Maxi Dress

$300.00

If dresses aren’t really your style a jumpsuit is a great alternative!

All Natural Velvet Jumpsuit

$128.00

Last but not least a cozy sweater and jeans works if you prefer to take a laidback approach to the day!

Whatever you choose to wear on Thanksgiving I hope you have a spectacular day and it’s filled with love.

With Love,

Trenda

Sweet and Chic-Shoulders

 I’m loving the shoulder baring trend which is flattering on almost everyone!

This trend is one of my faves because the hint of bare skin is just enough to be flirty yet demure enough to be sweet!

Wearing Off-the Shoulder looks great casually or dressed up. For a dressy look that you could wear on a date or a night out try a dress with a clutch and strappy sandals!

Black Similar Dress

Similar White Dress

To make the look work for Day try an Off-the shoulder top with denim or leggings( if it’s tunic length) for a more easygoing casual vibe!

Similar Sweater
Pants By One Teaspoon

No matter how you decide to wear the trend make sure to keep the look simple and keep accessories to a minimum. Most importantly have fun!

Spring-Layers!

I love Spring! It’s one of the best times to play dress up because of the fun layering you can do! This outfit is simple yet has fun details!

For Spring layering I like to wear lighter pieces because it can be warmer during the day so you want to be comfortable and not overheat. 
I paired a netted long sweater with a short sleeved sweatshirt to add depth and interest!
I kept the bottom half of the outfit simple with a strappy sandal and dark leggings!
I hope this inspires some Spring Layering!

My Green Drink 🍵

The Hubby says I look like the perfect, milennial hipster in this pic! Yes, I’m a millennial. Therefore, I can laugh at myself; which I do often because what’s life without laughter! Moving Forward!

I, like a lot of people have embarked on a healthy eating journey this January. I actually have been doing a detox every January for the last 4 years and I have actually stuck it out each time and come away feeling better. This is not to brag, it is a challenge for me like most people to stick to a healthy eating routine. However, I have a few tricks up my sleeve to make it a bit bearable! I will share one of them here!

I typically try to eat healthy Year-round, however, at Christmas time I indulge a lot!  Therefore,  January is the perfect time to reset my body and get it back to normal. For my detox I can’t have milk, which really cramps my style because I love drinking coffee, Tea and Flat Whites, it’s literally an everyday thing. I usually drink tea as a replacement for my coffee during this time. More specifically as of late I’ve been drinking Matcha. Which are green tea leaves crushed into a powder form.

I love drinking Matcha because to me it has a creamier texture on its own. It helps me deal with the lack of milk I can have. I also like how filling it is!

Click To Buy Matcha!

Click the pic for a link to buy Matcha. I bought mine at Lunds and Byerlys in Edina, MN. 

Green Tea has many benefits one of which is it contains antioxidants! For me, I use it to help curb my hunger during my detox and it’s also a great way to take a relaxing moment to yourself.


You can read more about Green Tea benefits here: Green Tea Facts

Back to how I drink it!

I follow the instructions on the tea’s packaging.

Then I add: Stevia( 0 calorie all natural sweetener), Vanilla Extract, and cream when I can!


I use a honey spoon to stir my Matcha!


I hope you enjoy this yummy drink! I love to drink Matcha whether I’m detoxing or not because to me it’s delicious!

Have a great Week!

Until next time, stay chic dolls 💜
