Weekly Roundup

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you all had the best week. It was our first ‘norma’ week since before the holidays. Immediately after the new year we dealt with multiple rounds of sickness, so it felt so nice to actually work a regular week. Of course, it also felt long, after so many short weeks/works from home days. I am popping in to share a weekly roundup before we get slammed with a snow storm this afternoon. Tis the season in Minnesota, right!?

Weekly Roundup

Amazon Try On

I shared an Amazon try-on over on Instagram this week, and it included some of my favorite pieces ever! I asked what your favorite was, and, literally, 99% of people responded that it was the brown sweater! It is as cute in person as online 🙂 All try ons are saved to my highlights on Instagram, so you can head over to check them out!

Athleisure Look

This cozy look is one of my favorite outfits I have shot this winter. For whatever reason, I tend to not shoot many ‘casual’ looks, but the reality is I am definitely rocking leggings and jogger pants most of the time on the weekend! 🙂 My coatigan is from Chicwish, and i love how it can be totally dressed up or down. All other items are linked below-my white tennis shoes are under $25 and my hat is from amazon and comes in about twenty flavas!

Cozy Hearts

Another day, another Valentine’s Day sweater 😉 I just could not resist this one-the pink hearts are FUZZY and are so soft. The inside is actually lined with the same fuzzy material (I would say it is an ‘eyelash’ material) and it is so darn cozy to wear. It comes in joint sizing, I am wearing a large/extra-large.

The Cutest Running Shoes

No pun intended, but RUN to get these running shoes! They are currently in stock in all sizes except for 11, and ship free! These sold out in 24 hours the last time I saw them in stock, they are definitely a hot ticket item. The sizing is unisex so they run big, so while many shoes often run small on me (I am a ‘big’ 11), these fit me perfectly! Otherwise, go down 1/2 size!

New Skincare

I do not know what is going on this winter, but my skin is more dry than it has EVER been. I will blame it on turning 30 this fall-I had a conversation with a group of ladies last weekend and EVERYONE swore your body KNOWS when you turn 30 and makes sure that you feel old 😉 This cleansing oil can be used to remove makeup, but is also a cleanser for dry/sensitive skin. I have been using it this week in place of my normal facewash to give my skin a break. Trust me, it leaves your skin feeling SO clean, even though it is an oil. I was skeptical, but am sold! Use code MACKENSEY to snag 20% off of your order through January 31st!

Cleanser (take 20% off with code MACKENSEY-goes down to 15% on February 1st!)

Runway Show

A little bit of real life FUN to share below! Last weekend I was able to walk in another runway show for our local wedding expo. I actually did a modeling job for the local brides magazine right after we got married, and have been involved and doing the runway shows ever since. I have even walked in a few with a baby bump, which was entertaining!

I think that this was my FAVORITE dress of the show. During the shows, we wear so many dresses and are taking them off and putting them on so quickly, we rarely actually get a good look at them. When I saw the picture of the back of this dress, I was blown away by how beautiful it is. So darn pretty!

I called this my ‘black swan dress’. Seriously, playing dress up at these shows is one of my favorite things!

I hope you all have the best weekend! They have already ordered an early dismissal for tomorrow in preparation for the snow storm, and Mike’s famous mac n cheese is on the menu for dinner, so I am a happy camper!

100+ Winter Jackets for All Weather

Happy Monday friends! It is the last full ‘normal’ week until the holiday craziness begins, and I cannot believe it. With the holiday season also comes lots of COLD-we are struggling with a fall that super cold very quickly. So, I have been forced to pull out the winter jackets early! Last week I shared over 100 hats, mittens and scarves. Today, I thought I would do something similar and round up some of the best winter jackets. I broke them down by category, so keep reading to see 100+ winter jackets for all weather!

100+ Winter Jackets For All Weather

Puffer Coats

Puffer coats are one of my favorite jackets to wear, especially during the transitional seasons. Many of these won’t hold up to the dead of winter (at least here in Minnesota). But the packable material make these amazing jackets that keep you warm without being bulky. 

Moto and Faux Leather Jackets

Moto jackets are a GREAT staple piece. I have lived in the one I have all fall long. They add a touch of edge to any outfit, and there are SO many options out there right now. 

Sherpa and Faux Fur

This trend speaks to my heart! I am loving that sherpa and faux fur are EVERYWHERE right now. Sherpa is one of the warmest fabrics-I actually have some sherpa sweaters that are so warm, I have to save them for the coldest of days. These styles will keep you cozy and trendy all at once!

Dressy Coats

Every woman needs a classic dress coat in their closet. Perfect for wearing over a dress on date night, or to the office, while still keeping you warm. Peacoats are one of my favorite jacket styles-they are so cute and there are SO many styles!

Cold Weather Jackets

This one is for all of my Midwestern friends 😉 Sometimes, all that you are concerned about is warmth and making sure you don’t freeze. These jackets will have you covered, and keep you warm even when the polar vortex swings through1

Shell Jackets

Shell jackets are so great for transitional weather, or if you plan to be outside and active. They are lightweight but keep you warm. I have always thought they look so sleek while being sporty, too!

As always, thank you for reading! If there is anything you would like to see more of, let me know!

Weekly Roundup

Hello hello, how are we already to another weekend!? Today offically marks being halfway through November, and I cannot believe it! This is our last low key weekend for quite awhile, so I am going to soak it all up. I have been working hard on LOTS of blog content, so hopefully I can breathe a bit in December. Blogging is so much fun, but the holidays are truly the busiest time of the year, there is so much to be done. I have published a ton of blog posts in the past few weeks to help assist with all of your holiday shopping. And of course, you can find me over on Instagram every day sharing my looks, a healthy dose of real life, and more! Keep reading to see my weekly roundup. And if you don’t already, you can subscribe to my newsletter! I round up the week’s content in one easy to read place that is quick and easy to scan through 🙂

Over On Instagram

Below you can find all of the outfits that I shared over on Instagram this week! Lots of beanies and cozy sweaters. Winter is here, and so is my cozy wardrobe 😉

My colorblock sweater and black hat are both from my latest Red Dress Boutique try on! I love how these colors are a change of pace from the typical fall shades.

My beanie shown below is currently 40% off (use code CHILL) PLUS an extra 10% taken off at checkout!

This buffalo plaid vest is sherpa lined, and is about as comfy as it gets. It is the perfect piece to wear on chilly days and casual holiday get togethers.

This is my ultimate ‘momiform’. Every year I try to grab a new flannel shirt, and the lighter colors on this one are so pretty! Everything shown in the photo below (besides the hat and bag) are currently on sale!

I am not one bit sad that the snow from last weekend is gone, but how fun is my cozy season sweatshirt!? I paired it with a red beanie and took the boys for a sled ride!

Red Dress Try-On

I shared some fun new styles from Red Dress Boutique. They are all cozy and the perfect items as we enter winter!

Over 100 Hats, Scarves, and Mittens for Winter!

Raise your hand if you live in a cold weather state!? To all of you in the south, 40 degrees in January does not count as cold 😉 Kidding!..kind of. But really, after the past few winters, I am so afraid of what is to come, but I am also SO much more prepared for the weather. I have been stocking up on hats, mittens, and scarves, and rounded up over 100 options for you all! Whether you are looking for something fashionable or function (or both!) I have lots of options below. Keep reading to see over 100 hats, scarves, and mittens for winter!

Over 100 Hats, Mittens, and Scarves for Winter

Hats

So many hats, so little time! I cannot stop buying cute beanies. I was sure to include items with different levels of ‘warmth’, so you can rock cute hats no matter where you live!

Ear Warmers

Ear warmers are one of those winter items that never get enough credit! I remember as a child hating getting hat hair, and to a certain extent this is still true! If a hat isn’t a part of my outfit, or if I am not trying to hide dirty hair 😉 I hate messing my style up with a hat! Ear muff and ear warmers are the perfect alternative to keep your ears warm and your hair in tact. I even found one with headphones!

Scarves

SO MANY SCARVES! I have been incredibly impressed by the selection of scarves this year at my go to retailers. Typically I am not much of a scarf person, but this year the styles are too cute to resist!

Mittens

If I had to choose between mittens and gloves, I would choose mittens any day. They are so cozy and my goodness, I found some cute styles below!

Gloves

While I prefer mittens, I also know that gloves are so important to have, especially if you live somewhere cold. While I love how cozy mittens are, sometimes you need the functionality of gloves! I included stylish options (perfect to wear with a dress coat), as well as some heavy duty, made for the cold options!

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings Styled 15 Ways

Raise your hand if you have jumped on the faux leather legging trend. It took me awhile, but after regretting not getting them during sale season ALL year long, I knew I had to snag them right away this year. I cannot tell you how many times I have worn them already. They can be dressed up, down, and everything in between. I never really understood the hype, but trust me when I saw, these are good. It can be hard to justify in investing in something like leggings, but this is an investment piece you will get so much use out of! To show you just how versatile they are, I am bringing you Spanx faux leather leggings styled 15 ways! No matter what your style is, I am certain there is a look that will register with you 🙂 I would love to know which look is your favorite, so feel free to leave a comment!

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings Styled 15 Ways

One

This look might be my favorite, because who can say no to a fur vest? I layered it over one of my favorite white sweaters, and added my snakeskin booties for a fun pop!

Vest // Sweater // Leggings // Booties

Two

There are few things I love more than an all black look. This vest is a staple piece that can be worn so many different ways, and my black plush top is so cozy.

Vest // Shirt // Leggings // Booties

Three

I don’t know about you, but I love a good henley top! This one is a top seller and has been going in and out of stock all year, and is a must have if you can get your hands on it!

Shirt // Leggings // Shoes

Four

Possibly my favorite sweatshirt ever. Who else watches The Office?! I love Jim and Pam, do you guys remember when she said this line? This is probably my most casual look in the list, but I simply threw on this sweatshirt, some duck boots, and a cozy hat. I am ready for winter 😉

Sweatshirt // Leggings // Boots // Hat

Five

Another cozy henley top, but one is never enough. This one has been another top seller, and comes in a ton of colors! The sleeves are nice and long, and it runs true to size with a roomy fit. My black sneakers have cushioned support and are so comfy!

Shirt // Leggings // Shoes

Six

Lots of mixing and matching happening with these items. This is the henley from above, paired with the vest shown earlier! I am really trying to create new outfits with what exists in my closet, and love how staple pieces like these can add versatility to your wardrobe!

Vest // Shirt // Leggings // Shoes

Seven

My opinion on these faux leather leggings is that they can totally work for the office. Throw on a sweater that covers the booty, a fun blazer, and some chic booties, and you have a class (and comfy!) office ready look.

Blazer // Sweater // Leggings // Booties

Eight

From office to couch, how cute are the faux leather leggings paired with this camo shirt!? I would call this a very lightweight sweatshirt, and it is so soft. The length is great, making it perfect for leggings. And these are another color of the slip on sneakers I mentioned above. I may or may not own them in three colors!

Shirt // Leggings // Shoes

Nine

One of my absolute FAVORITE trends is buffalo plaid. I love how casual it is, and you can wear it so many different ways. I decided to throw on a black and white option for the outfit below, and paired it with a comfy white t-shirt.

Flannel // Tee // Leggings // Shoes

Ten

This is the same outfit as above, I just moved the shirt and tied it around my waist!

Tee // Flannel // Leggings // Shoes

Eleven

Okay, this is another favorite of mine. This turtleneck poncho is one of my absolute favorite purchases of the season, and I love how stylish this outfit feels. You can also snag it in black and tan! It is a great piece for the holidays, and so perfect for feeling classy and cozy all at once.

Sweater // Leggings // Booties

Twelve

Another top selling item of the year, this sweater is where it’s at. I love the oversized fit, and thought the outfit tied together so well with some tan over the knee boots! This look will definitely keep you warm, and has all of the colors of fall.

Sweater // Leggings // Boots

Thirteen

This cardigan is the other investment piece on the list, but is worth every penny. You can almost always find it on sale at this retailer, and they allow easy pay in 6 installments. I once again threw on my over the knee boots. Such a cozy outfit, perfect four lounge days.

Cardigan // Tee // Leggings // Boots

Fourteen

You know I had to throw in a (faux) leather on leather look, right!? I love how edgy a black moto jacket feels against these faux leather leggings. And with a pair of black studded booties!? Probably as cool as this mom of toddlers has felt in awhile 😉

Jacket // Long Sleeve Tee // Leggings // Boots

Fifteen

This is the last look, and probably the most simple. I love a good utility shirt, and I love that this one comes in tall and petite. I prefer my shirts to be a bit more of an oversized fit, so I did a large tall in this one. You can grab it in other colors, and it is on sale often!

Utility Shirt // Leggings // Booties

Which look is your fovorite!? I would love to know how you style your faux leather leggings. And if you love the look but cannot justify the price tag, I linked up a few more affordable faux leather legging options below!
