Winter Basics


Gooooood morning!

I finally got to sleep in a little today (woke up at 7:30am wahoo!) and wanted to share with you guys a simple winter outfit. I remember stepping out of the car a few years ago in Denver, when there happened to be a huge blizzard in Michigan, and I couldn't even believe a place like this existed. Sunny, slightly chilly with snow on the ground. You could definitely say it was a perfect move for Alex and myself. I could never wear an outfit like this in Michigan in January due to the fact that I would turn (literally) in a popsicle. 




Boots (on sale!) & Tights- Target :: Skirt & Jean Jacket- Forever21
Sweater- H&M :: Lip Color- Rumor GloMinerals

I love building a closet with basics and neutral colors so I can mix and match and get more use out of everything. I linked everything above for easy shopping!

Alex and I are going skiiing tomorrow, then my Mom and Stepdad arrive Saturday for a week. We're headed to a condo in the mountains next week and I couldn't be MORE EXCITED! Skiing, quality time, hot cocoa, wine and good food with my fam bam.

Have a lovely week!

2016-Year in Review

Well, I don't know about everyone else, but this last year has FLOWN by. I learned so much about myself and the person I want to become. Here's some of the great things that happened to me from 2016!



Alex and I road tripped to see the sunrise at the Grand Canyon and it was breath taking. We drove up to the park and it was complete darkness. After pulling up to a pull off, we found a spot and watched the Grand Canyon slowly appear-it's definitely a must see!!



I started to find my style-and fell in love with blogging all over again.



Made fitness and eating healthy part of my daily routine ever since my Doctor told me I had high cholesterol! I was able to change that naturally through healthy eating and exercise. It also gave me so much more confidence and energy!



I explored more of Colorado and disconnected from the world to be with the gorgeous nature God gave us.



I loved my husband even more with every passing day.



NOW-here are a few things I want to focus on in 2017:

1. Be more intentional
2. Go on a date once a month with Alex
3. Hike at least 2 more 14ers
4. Dedicate more time to things I love - blogging, hiking, camping and skiing
5. Give more of everything
6. Travel, travel, travel (so many places to see, so little time!)
7. Challenge myself in my faith

I could go on and on. I love setting goals, but I think I should stop and focus on these 7. Did anyone else make some un-stoppable goals for 2017? I want to hear them!

Here's to another year we are gifted life and the craziness that comes along with it.

Thanks for reading and following along!

NYE Velvet

So here we are, another year has completely almost passed and it almost feels like a dream! I've had three different jobs, watched the sunrise over the Grand Canyon, visited friends in Mexico and California, went home to Michigan for the perfect summer week, and the list goes on. I think more importantly I've learned that letting the negativity of the world around me into my life and my happiness is the most miserable thing you can do. Also-fake it till you make it and you can't make everyone happy are becoming common mantras in my life.

Anyways, I put together this simple but cute NYE outfit together and I have to say I can't help but be obsessed with all things VELVET. I couldn't help but take the photos in front of this gorgeous and huge Christmas Tree at Cherry Creek Shopping Center since Alex and I didn't put a tree up this year. I was then bribed with doughtnuts so I didn't go into the mall and spend hours window shopping ;)

I hope everyone had a good holiday! Time to set some new and epic goals for 2017.
Who's with me?!
