I love embracing trends... to a point.  I've learned that I have to take a trend and incorporate it into my style and wardrobe that fits me.  My style is typically chic preppy and I like to mix trends with classic pieces. The black and white trend is hot the season along with stripes!  Don't you love how this sweater incorporates both?  The jacket I actually picked up at Christmas time and haven't had the perfect outfit to "blog it".  I think it was waiting for this moment!  My classic piece to balance out the trend?  Classic pearls!

Linking up with Marion Berry Style!  Check out her blog - been a follower for a while and not only does she have great style, but she's now a mama herself!  Also linked up with Shanna Said So & The Pleated Poppy.

Latest nugget story:
Yesterday was President's Day and my hubs had the day off.  So nice!  We had a good day, some chores (laundry - yeah..), but mostly enjoying time together.  As I was giving my nugs their lunch Jack asked for more milk.  Our conversation went something like this:
Jack, "Mamma, I need more milk."
Me, "Please may I have more milk?"
Jack, "Peeese!"
Me, "Here ya go bud."
Jack (taking the milk, no response)
Me, "Say thank you."
Jack, "Thank you... and Merry Christmas!"

What goes through their little minds?...

  18. I love this outfit! That sweater is so adorable! I agree with Jack! It should be Christmas year round :) Also, I didn't realize your sons name is Jack...I love that name! It's my grandpas name (well, his name is Edwin Jacques Wylie but everyone calls him Jack) and my husband and I have talked about, if we have a boy, naming him Jack.
