“There’s Six pink peppermints til Christmas! And there are lots and lots of things we need to doooo” …Ten points if you can sing the rest of this chorus! Ohhhhh it brings me right back to my elementary years… Six days, guys! We can do it!
On the agenda for today I’ve got a fitness class, an errand or two to run, and lots of thank you notes to write. You can bet my Nest holiday candle is lit and Bing Crosby is playing in the background. I’ll also be working on several blog posts now that I have a little more time and am feeling a bit inspired. YAY!
I wanted to share this look with you before Christmas because this blanket scarf is SO perfect for it and I love this easy casual look. It goes with so many things! I bought this long sleeve basic tee at Gap’s outlet over Thanksgiving and it quickly sold out, but there’s a very similar one at Old Navy that’s currently under $10. Yes, please! I love how easy it is to put yourself together with a simple shirt and a scarf. My Frye boots are in their fourth season and one of my favorite investment pieces to date. Prepare to see them on repeat as we move into this winter weather.
Now let’s talk Kelly Wynne. Kelly is a local entrepreneur who started her handbag company three years ago and has opened her first store at the Domain in Austin. I love supporting local businesses but even more so when I ADORE their product. I was lucky to meet Kelly at an event in November and she is as sweet as can be and full of energy. I loved hearing her story and the hurdles she overcame to follow her dream. You can read (and watch!) a little more about her here. Because I attended that event, I received a 50% off coupon and treated myself to two of my favorite KW bags. I wore this Mingle Mini in four recent outfit shoots, so it will be all over The Autumn Girl these next few weeks. The thing is, it’s a perfect winter (or as she would say it: WYNNEter) evening bag for those sparkly outfits and nights out, but also my go-to for running errands and just keeping my purse items light! I am excited for Kelly’s spring collection because I want the exact same bag in a bright color.
What’s different about Kelly Wynne beyond her clever branding is her style. I love the beautiful W logo she has on each and every bag and even her welcoming doors outside her shop! I love the texture and material of her products as well as the unique patterns and designs. Her collection is darling, yet affordable, and she has plenty of gorgeous bags to choose from!
I can’t wait to show your future outfits with this same bag :) I hope you have a lovely Monday! Stay warm, friends. It’s below 40 in Austin and this Chicagoan has obviously gotten used to Texas weather because I am FREEZING! Wish me luck when I head home in a few days!
