Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Today I'm heading back up to the mountains with my favorite boy for another day of skiing and a low-key New Year's Eve. Champagne and excellent scotch are sure to make for a fun night. I hope you have a safe and fantastic New Year's Eve! 

Here's to a great 2012 and an even better 2013.

I had a bit too much fun with hats on Christmas, but isn't this pile of poinsettias gorgeous? I love it. And I hope you like this jacket as much as I do! I lived in it in California, and I apologize in advance for the abundance of posts featuring it that are sure to appear here shortly.

A Very Charlie Brown Christmas

While the hotel lobby had excellent decor, the family Christmas Tree was much more Charlie Brown friendly. Of course I dressed accordingly. 

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas if you celebrated it! I'm on my way back to Colorado today, and am hoping to get some good skiing in before the New Year. Follow along on instagram @jkschroeder

Duluth Pack's Stormy Kromer Rancher Cap, J. Crew shirt, J Brand jeans. And Christmas socks, naturally.

One More Sleep Till Christmas

Spending Christmas in a hotel is made significantly better by two things: my wonderful family, and excellent lobby decor. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of my fabulous readers out there. This blog wouldn't be the  same without you, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love and support. I hope you have fun celebrating this holiday season! I'll be dreaming of snow in the mountains in Colorado.

It's a Wonderful Life!

 After some last minute shopping, baking, and packing, the weekend is finally here. Later today, I'm picking up a special someone from the airport whom I can't wait to see, and then tomorrow I'm off to Christmas with the family. Life certainly is wonderful at the moment! How are you spending the holiday if you celebrate it? I'd love to hear your plans! 

Have a fabulous weekend, and a very Merry Christmas!!

On Outerwear

The best part about the right outerwear is how it has the ability to pull an entire outfit together, or to make the outfit, really. Because of this, and because of the fact that I've spent most of my life in Wisconsin and Minnesota, I've invested heavily in outerwear. This particular coat I bought at J. Crew years ago, and have continued to love every winter since. Double-breasted pieces have always been a favorite of mine, and the camel color made this coat far too pretty to pass up. I was living in Minneapolis at the time, and had reservations about the shortened sleeve length, but between long-sleeved layers and super warm mittens, it has never been a problem. 

And even after all these years, it still makes an oversized hoodie-tunic thing and leggings into an outfit.

Joyeux Noël

Something about this outfit feels very French, though there's nothing particularly French about it. Regardless, Joyeux Noël! I'm so excited for Christmas. 

I also want to send my love and prayers to the families of those people whose lives were tragically taken from them on Friday morning in connection with the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. I'll be thinking of them this holiday season.

Christmas is Coming

With Christmas only eleven days away, and tons more to do before then, it's nice when those little things remind you of the season. For example: Starbucks' red cups. Especially when they coordinate perfectly with my green sweater to make these photos a bit more seasonally appropriate. And A Charlie Brown Christmas album, on repeat. It's my favorite. Do you have a favorite Christmas album? Or Christmas song? 

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Céline sunglasses, Nordstrom scarf (similar), Dolce Vita sweater (similar style), vintage tee, Lululemon Athletica leggings, Stuart Weitzman boots, Mike & Chris jacket (similar), Balenciaga bag.

Thank you, Alice, for these photos! And the fabulous lunch date :)
