Post Christmas Blues

I am totally one of those people that get super depressed after Christmas is over- especially since having kids.

The lead up to Christmas is always so fun- and becomes more and more magical as the days get closer. We keep our Christmas very low key. We do not buy extravagant gifts or tons of toys- I like to buy things that mean something, not buying just to buy. I believe this is one of the reasons the lead up to Christmas is so great!! I/we do not put too much stress on gift giving, parties, dinners, etc. it’s nice to just enjoy every moment and celebrate being together without anxiety.

That being said, I feel as though once it’s over, it just stops. Our family is not New Years Eve party people, so once Christmas is over, that’s the end of our holiday season. Honestly it makes me super depressed!! Don’t even get me started on when the Christmas decorations need to be taken down… I cry! Can anyone relate!?

How do you deal with the after holiday blues??

Post Christmas errand outfit details posted below.

I like to keep cozy as I can- especially after Christmas cookies!! :/

Basic Black Legging- I like the high rise style-

Black scoop neck long sleeve- F21

Faux Fur lined booties-—universal-thread–153–gray-7/-/A-53581420

Thick Grey Coatigan is Dip brand from Kroger Marketplace- at select stores

As Promised

As promised here is another holiday party look- with my current fave sweater jacket!

I have paired it with just a simple red dress and black heels- but depending on how dressy or glam you want to go, add your own style.

– statement necklace or statement earrings

– Sparkly heels

– even a belt

So much could be added to really make this outfit your own!! It could definitely be worn with a glitzy dress for a more glam or New Years Eve style outfit!

Faux Soft

So, I am always looking for new items to change up the basics…. honestly most of the time I am wearing neutrals, so I love to find ways to give those basics some life!!!

I just got this part sweater, part faux suede jacket with faux fur & I am living for it right now!! It is such a great piece to wear with neutrals OR because it is just black and white you could wear it with prints, bold colors, etc.

It is on sale, under $30!!! Super soft, light weight but warm… yes yes yes!! It comes in 3 colors- do yourself a favor and get one while you can. Item linked below

I will be posting other looks using this jacket in a future post!! Stay tuned! 🙂 xox


Stressing about what to wear for holiday parties?? Looking for something adorable but simple for the holiday season?

Looking like a disco ball is not for everyone… glitzing it up is great once in a while, but if you are feeling a little more laid back, try a festive plaid skirt and a simple top. Super low-key, but oh so cute!!

You could dress this outfit up with heels and sparkling statement jewelry or keep it simple and casual with booties or OTK boots. It could also be paired with a peacoat or trench coat OR feeling edgy???? Try it with a moto jacket!! The style possibilities are endless!!

Forever21 has some amazing options and affordable- even during the holidays!! 🎄(top & skirt shown from Forever21)

I have posted links to some similar options below. I will also be continuing to post holiday looks leading up to Christmas and New Years, so keep checking out the blog and my Instagram @happilyeverdwyer

Fall 2018

I love our annual fall vacation!! We get to spend time together as a “party of four” and enjoy FALL!! 🍁🍂

The cool crisp air, apple picking, hiking, fall colors, leaves, cool weather fashion- love it all. But most importantly we get to have uninterrupted TIME.

Today we went apple picking (as we do each year) and the boys always have such fun! We only pick a few apples, but that’s all we need.🍎

What does everyone enjoy most about fall??!!

Fall Weekend

It feels like fall finally and I am soooo happy!!! 🍁🍁

Had a wonderful weekend- love when family visits. It’s so important to surround yourself with good & kind people. My family brings such joy to me- we support each other and bring each other up….

My husband and I both have such loving families, our boys are so lucky. But even on a regular day it is so hard to get these two guys to sit still so with family around, no one wants to sit still!! SO I love these slip on sneakers!! So comfortable and practical!! They are super cute with faux snakeskin detail and a small platform sole- and totally affordable!! I got these from Amazon!! I paired them with the most comfortable outfit, black leggings, black shirt and a cardigan.

Rust is such a popular color for fall and looks great on everyone. My cardigan is from Target, but there are similar styles and colors pretty much everywhere!

I have my sneaker and cardigan details below 🙂

Happy Fall Y’all 🍁🍁
