What to wear to a holiday party

one · two · three · four

I like to buy one nice dress around the holidays to wear to everything festive. These are some of my favorites that really make a statement and distract from my tired eyes. :) I think they'd all look darling with zip-up ankle boots!

Happy Holidays!

3 Tips for Kid-friendly Holiday Decorating

Our gal @janereaction is sharing three simple tips to make your holiday decorating kid-friendly, and full of fun memories for your little ones.


1. Change up their bedding! I love changing up my kids' bedding for the months of November and December. It's an easy switch that they notice big time and really helps them feel like they are getting in the spirit! The flannel sheets are from Target and then I just got a couple of holiday pillows to throw on there as well.

4 Tips for Traveling with Kids

Traveling with kids can be challenging and complicated. So today we're sharing four expert tips from stellar globe-trotting mamas who travel often with their kids.



 TRAVEL TIP #1, from @thealisonshow:

My best travel tip is to try to have almost no expectations! Or more specifically decide on just one. When we went to Hawaii with 3 kids who are 6 and under, I set my top priority and expectation as: spending lots of quality time with my kids by giving them my undivided attention. So when Rad (3) threw up multiple times all over our rental car on a twisty road, or all the kids sobbed because sand is SANDY 🙄, I could say, "But we're together, and that's what I wanted!" And it really did help me from getting frustrated or grumpy when things, as they always will with kids (especially when you're trying to be fun!) didn't go exactly perfect. I was a more fun mom and wife and human because of it!
