Holidays With Feltman Brothers

The holidays are my favorite time of year! You can either be cozy at home with a cup of hot cocoa or get all dressed up for a festive affair! And the holidays have gotten even better in recent years, as now I have my little one to join in on the fun. During this season, it seems like Elle has an equally packed social calendar. Between play dates, our annual holiday tea, and fun activities at home, there’s always something to celebrate. In these moments, I turn to our favorite brand, Feltman Brothers, to make sure she’s dressed beautifully. I love Feltman’s vintage-inspired heritage pieces that never go out of style. I still have some Feltman Brothers dresses from when I was a child, so I’m excited to keep these classic pieces for Elle to hand down to her children one day.

From the intricate smocking to the embroidery, the details are always a gorgeous part of every Feltman Brother’s item. This holiday Elle will be wearing her dresses to family events, and even has some lounge wear for cozy cuddles at home. While the clothes will stand the test of time, I’m excited about the memories we’ll make that will last a lifetime. 

Happy Holidays Dolls and thank you to Feltman Brothers for partnering on this post!

Tuxedo Blazer

So I may have a little thing for tuxedo jackets. Cream with black, black with cream, all black, satin, velvet…you name it! Well, there was one type of tuxedo jacket that was missing from my repertoire – the cropped jacket! I’m absolutely in love with this shortened tuxedo silhouette that makes a typically formal piece more trendy. For my recent look, I opted for a simple pairing of a black tee and medium-wash jeans. You’ll find me wearing this to work, a casual dinner and beyond. What about you, Dolls? Would you rock the cropped tuxedo jacket?

Winter Garden Party

As you guys have probably seen, I’ve become obsessed with Zimmermann and the brand’s feminine and flattering dresses!

When I saw this ethereal mint green number, I couldn’t help but get it! This collection was inspired by the zodiac, and while I originally tried my own sign (Leo), I felt this Capricorn style was more my speed.  First, the colors are so dreamy, combined with the airy chiffon and blousy silhouette, it’s a no-brainer. I’m wearing this on warmer winter days and will probably save it for a special occasion such as Elle’s birthday. The pastels just speak to me at a time when we’re generally bombarded by jewel tones in the holiday season. To finish off my look, I opted for simple gold-heeled sandals and jewelry. The best part? This dress will totally still work in Spring and Summer. See you dolls at the next garden party!
