Tis the happiest season of all! I love this time of year to sit at home, be cozy, enjoy good drinks, warp gifts and enjoy family time!

If you have been watching my vlogs on my YouTube channel, you know what a dilemma we’ve had with our Christmas tree this year, but it’s finally up!! Better late than never right?! Every year we purchase a real Christmas tree and go with a different theme. This year we stepped out of our comfort zones with a faux white tree adorned with black, white and gold ornaments and we are so glad we did! Cute huh?! It matches better with our place and décor and is so much easier to set up and dismantle when you live in an apartment building (only apartment residents understand the struggle! lol…). This is also #FancyP ‘s first Christmas with us (can you spot Cheezie- our late beagle on our tree?) . We are so happy so obvs. we had to document it. Of course, setting up a tree means being cozy and cute with Old Navy (up to 60% off entire site!). I’ve been really enjoying shopping at Old Navy lately, (remember this post?) especially the Pop Preppy collection. I must confess that I truly enjoyed the black Friday sales they had! I scored many items including this gorgeous scarf for only $10 bucks! I ended up picking up two; one for me and one for you, which you can score during today’s Instagram giveaway Have you entered any? Don’t forget, I will be gifting items throughout the entire month as a token of appreciation to all of you! I adore you guys and appreciate the constant love and support!

Hi fancy friends!

I’m that girl that takes sweaters and jackets with me every time I go out of the house, even if it never leaves the car… Year round, true story! Hubby is even used to reminding me, “Don’t forget a sweater,” and to turn off the hair iron (but that’s a whole other blog post). He knows me so well, and if there’s one thing that I hate the most in this life it’s to be cold. I’d rather sweat my heart out than spend a minute being cold. Hence, why I love Miami. I’m a tropical girl! I love visiting cooler places, but have to be very well prepared. I remember traveling to NYC, and once we arrived, the weather was so cold that we went back to the hotel room and stayed there for the rest of the night and admired the city form the window. I take sweaters to the beach and on the boat so you can only imagine whet fall and winter look like for me. Ponchos, blanket scarves and oversized cardigans are my FAVES for this time of year. They are so easy to carry and your best friend for travelling. They can be used as blanket, pillow and look stylish at the same time.

This generously sized poncho from Old Navy is perfect for windy and chilly weather. You can throw it over your shoulder and instantly adds that fall cozy feel to your look. Michael and I take Penelope to play at the park by our house every Saturday afternoon and just let her run around. It’s always so much fun to see her out and about and it’s so mentally healing to disconnect for half an hour and do what we do best… Enjoy each other’s company.

Penelope aka “Fancy P” is already 6 months old. She weighs about 3 pounds and is the most playful fur ball ever. Michael and I really contemplated getting another dog (read more about Penelope here).  We felt so free not having a dog and being able to just pack and go, but now we couldn’t be happier with her. We are enjoying her so much that I’m having doggy fever and want another one. I keep catching myself looking at miniature King Charles Cavaliers and miniature Cocker Spaniels. No decisions have been made yet. LOL.

Thank you for stopping and till next time. Stay chic!
