3 ways to wear with Weddington Way: The Holiday Dress Guide

With the holiday season upon us, I am sure your to-do list and social calendar are filling up fast!  What better way to stay on budget and save time than to plan your celebratory outfits by reusing one dress in multiple ways?!  Today I am happy to share with you this Alfred Sung dress from Weddington Way styled for three different holiday occasions.  (You can find tons of other great dresses for any event in their bridesmaid dress collection!) Also, how great is it that this dress has pockets?!  If you want to see more ways to re-style pieces from your closet, check out my one piece 3 ways posts.

Keep your outfit festive but comfortable for a Christmas dinner at home.  Add a little sparkle to your feet and keep your jewelry simple.  And, how great is this plaid scarf?
dress / flats / necklace / bracelet / scarf

For a festive celebration with your coworkers, maintain a professional aura with covered arms and legs.  However, sprinkle in the Christmas sparkle and shine in small details like rhinestones hidden in eyewear and a touch of patent leather on your toes.  Throw on a fun necklace for the after work hours and you are set!

Heading out on the town for a celebration with friends?  Add some heels, a clutch with sheen, and paint the town those nails red!

Thank you, Veterans

This Veterans Day, I want to send a special thank you to honor all of our brave and sacrificing Veterans.  Freedom is never free, and the men and women who have served, are serving, and will serve in our military to protect the U.S.A deserve all of our honor, compassion, and respect.  Thank you Veterans, and may God Bless America!

Nordstrom Clearance Sale Favorites

Better late than never, right?  It's the last day of the Nordstrom Clearance Event and I couldn't help but share a few of my favorites.  Is it ok that the back-to-school shopping fever is still hitting me this late in fall?  Anyone else on the same page as me?

Wonders from the weekend

The sunrises and sunsets from this weekend were simply breathtaking.  Beautiful colors splashed across the sky filled the start and end of the day with beauty only God could create.  I will be carrying the images of this natural art in my mind's eye as I tackle all this week has to bring!

A perfect fall outfit

Here you have it- an easy and perfect outfit for fall.  Simple to throw on in a hurry and sophisticated enough to feel collected and confident no matter what your day brings.  I just love the colors autumn brings to nature and our fall wardrobes- the berries and browns here speak to the season and make a great fashion statement.

Happy Halloween Decor

With the fall weather finally approaching now that its the middle of October, I have been happily enjoying some fall decorations around the 3P house.  Although I am not one to really decorate specifically for Halloween, there are some cute options out there to elude to the season but not the spookiness.  Here are a few tidbits I have spied here and there that would add a little Halloween festivity to your autumn decor.

Baby girl's 6 month photo shoot

It's no secret to anyone that knows her... #3PbabyB is pretty much the most beautiful and precious baby girl- not that I am in any way biased or anything (wink).  Time is flying by with this little one and she is in fact already 8 months old, but here are a few snapshots that my talented friend Nicole of Nic's Pics Photography took a few months ago.  I just can't stop perusing through these- thanks a million, Nic!

You can see some other work Nicole has captured for us here and here.

9 plaid scarves for fall

The days are still in the 90's in my sunny neck of the woods- I suppose I should be grateful but I really can't wait for fall!  While some of you might be lucky enough to be enjoying the crisp autumn weather and turn of the leaves, all I can do is dream about fall weather and the cozy fashion that comes with the days of pumpkin spice lattes.  Fall and winter are the perfect time to don a festive plaid print, and nothing is easier to keep you warm and festive looking than a scarf!  So here you have it, a roundup of plaid scarves that are perfect for taking you from those brisk fall days through the frosty winter months.

8. Heath Scarf $48.00

Fashionista photo shoot

A few months ago I was lucky enough to participate in a project that I styled and got all glammed up for.  The talented Annie from AEA Photography shot these photos and I could not be more pleased with the results!  This project left me feeling like I could style photo shoots for a living and be happy as a clam!

Fall Favorites: Altuzarra for Target

Hello again, 3P beauties! I know it has been a while but if you are following me on Instagram or Facebook, you know I am still around and loving life.  While this first month of fall is already flying by, it still feels much like summer in my neck of the woods.  Of course, I am thankful for the sunshine, but at the same time I cannot wait for cool fall weather and the cozy sweaters, scarves, pumpkin lattes and fall leaves that are brought around with those cooler days.  And of course, Target has a great fall designer collaboration out for all of us to enjoy- here are a few of my favorites from the Altuzarra for Target collection.  Do you have any favorites you are eying or have you scored a new closet gem from this collection already?

1. This orchid print maxi dress is elegant in its simplicity and I can picture it dressed down with a jean jacket and boots, or up with a statement necklace and sparkly heels.

2. Paired with a pencil skirt or jeans, this orchid print sweatshirt would make your daily fall uniform come together in a fashionable snap.

3. In fall's hottest hue, this green python sweatshirt is the perfect fall addition to your wardrobe.

4. For an instant strong, stylish statement, layer this contrast-sleeve trench over your favorite fall frock.

5. Over-the-Knee Boots are not anything I have ever worn before, but these designer beauties at an approachable price are enticing.

6. I love a good peasant blouse for fall, and this rich plum number has detailing galore to enjoy- no necklace required.

3PbabyB yellow and gray nursery

To continue on the Mother's Day theme here on the blog this week, I am happy to share our 3P Baby B's nursery.  This room came together in a snap after a few months of planning, and I could not be happier with this space.  Most of the furniture in this room was kindly gifted by friends and family, but are great bargain investments from Target.  I nixed the idea of a changing table in favor of a dresser, which can be used by our daughter after she outgrows the nursery.  The gallery wall is one of everyone's favorite designs, and the DIY mobile I fashioned above he changing pad is one of 3P Baby B's favorite things to look at!  Yellow, white and silver were the color inspirations for this room, and that inspiration produced some dreamy results!  So if you are looking for a little yellow and gray nursery design inspiration, look no further!
This glider is perfection- the back is tall enough to rest your head against, and the armrests are the perfect height for holding my little baby as I rock her to sleep.

Love these DIY shelves my man built and installed in our baby's room.  Love talking to her about dreams and laughter everyday when I point out those decorations- I had these on hand and spray painted them silver, but you can find something similar here or here.

Totally love how this nursery gallery wall came together!

I made this little mobile with some leftover decorations from a 3PbabyB baby shower.

Everyone loves this adorable clock from my childhood room- find a similar one here.
