What I Wore to My Daughters Christening


outfit details // See By Chloe Belted Tiered Dress, Sam Edelman Hazel Pump

This past Sunday Eleanor was Christened. She wore the same dress I wore as a baby during my christening. It was such a special event being surrounded by our family and friends. Being that her outfit was decided long ago, I took time figuring out what I would wear. I wanted to wear pants and a sweater but I am still not back into my pre-pregnancy size. They were a little tight and I didn’t feel like being uncomfortable on such a special day. After finding this See By Chloe dress online, it was settled. I loved the cut, the color, and that I can wear it all spring and summer. It also didn’t hurt that the dress was 50% off! I bought it without a second thought.

Being that my husband knows all too well what Net-a-Porter is he asked what I had purchased from them. I brushed him off and said something for Eleanor. When it arrived he mentioned what a beautiful dress it was and I said, “oh thank you. It is from NAP.” He looked at me and said, “you told me you bought something for Eleanor?” I laughed and responded, “Yes, it was a dress for me to WEAR to Eleanor’s Christening.” I was busted! But sometimes it is worth skirting the truth!

The Investment Jacket that is Worth It

Moncler Jacket, Warmest Winter Coat

If you are reading this post in a place that isn’t cold, you can probably skip over it. However, if you live in a cold place or travel to a cold place keep reading.  I have solved all of your problems. Throw away any old puffer or warm weather jackets you have. You won’t need them or any future jackets. I have found the holy grail of winter coats. I will be honest, it comes with a price, however, imagine how not having to buy another cold weather jacket for as long as you want. This jacket won’t go out of style, it doesn’t lose its’ structure and it is the warmest thing money can buy.

The jacket I am talking about? The Moncler Jacket. I have wanted a Moncler jacket for years. I remember seeing them in 2014 while on a trip to Switzerland. I kept seeing this little logo on these really chic jackets. I found out they were from a company called Moncler and it was settled, I had to have one. However, they are a bit pricy (worth every penny) so I spent my money on other jackets (including a Canada Goose). No matter which jacket I bought (and didn’t love) I couldn’t get Moncler out of my head. Well 4 years later I finally got my hands on my first Moncler. I debated going with short or long, black or blue. I decided on long and black (the Taleva)  and never looked back!

Y’all, I can’t even tell you how much I wear this jacket. I am not far off in saying I probably wear it 6 out of 7 days in the winter. It is so warm I can wear a t-shirt under it and be super warm in 40 degree weather. I am pretty sure there are mini heaters inside because I have never felt cold while wearing it. And warmth aside, this thing is gorgeous. I never feel like I am wearing one of those winter jackets that could also double as a construction jacket. It is so sliming and so chic!

This is way more winded than I wanted this post to be but that is just how much I adore this jacket! I want to save you all $hundreds$ if not $thousands$ of dollars wasting your money on jackets that are too bulky, not warmth enough, and/0r too trendy.

 

The Megan Pleated- Hem Dress

Outfit Details // Modern Citizen ‘Megan Pleated-Hem Jacket’ dress, Sam Edelman ‘Tristan’ pumpElizabeth and James sunglasses

For the longest time I have wanted to buy a blazer dress. I remember falling in love with the look when seeing Julia Roberts wear something similar in Pretty Woman. When it is done right, it is so chic. However, finding the right dress has been way harder than I thought. I have taken my time and have been really picky when it comes to purchasing this dress (try three years). The problem: they are either too short, too cheap (looking), or the buttons are in am awkward location. I had all but given up the search until I found this Megan Pleated Him Jacket dress from Modern Citizen. It isn’t your typical blazer dress but that makes me love it even more.

The cut is super flatter, especially for a mummy tummy. The pleat on the bottom not only adds length but also makes it very unique. I absolutely love this dress and am excited to wear it to a dinner I have this week, as well as, an event I have  next week!
