Stripes & Leopard

Sweater Gap ~ Leggings Target ~ Scarf Express ~ Clutch Malibu Bows c/o ~ Cuff Accessory Mercado c/o ~ Shoe Tory Burch ~ Sunnies Chanel

The weather was frightfully cold last week, and the lake was beginning to freeze.  A few hints of snow and it was a perfectly cold day with a sunny sky!  If you have been following along for a while, you know a leopard clutch has been on my radar.  I searched for sometime and found a darling Etsy shop Malibu Bows.  Eeeekkk with excitement over this beauty, it is super cute.  Seriously you need to check out her Etsy shop.  Malibu Bows has so many sizes and styles of affordable clutches and bags!  I love a good find!!  The front is soft calf hair, and the back is leather.  Perfect in size and shape, I couldn't be happier! 
 My tortoise cuff was also a new treat to me from the sweet girls at Accessory Mercado. If you haven't shopped there yet you are seriously missing out!  With statement necklaces galore, and tons of colors to choose from, you need to spend some time and shop their site! Neither one of these shops promoted this post, I am seriously that excited about them both is all!  And another great buy is my leopard scarf.  Seriously great buy at Express on super duper sale right now too!  Picked up my flats on sale on black Friday, Thank heavens for THAT sale!!!
On another note, life is craaazy  right now!  A little personal details. My mother has her follow up appointment today to see if she is still cancer free!  Keeping my finger crossed there!   My daughter in law had her second knee replacement on Friday, and all went well for her.  They have been staying with me for a few days so my house is full!!  My other son and his family have been living with me for the past three months.  Yes, you read that right, living with me! That would be two adults, and a 15 month old.  Yea me!   Ugh!  When grown kids move home and expect to be the kids again it makes for a crowded home!  They have a plan to move out to their own apartment the first week of January.  I am really looking forward to a quiet home soon! Between baby gates, toys,  everyone on a different eating schedule, and well the overall amount of commotion in the house,  I am stressed out!  I usually don't rant here, so I will stop with the update!  The blessing is everyone is healthy, recovering, and getting their act together (lets hope) and my home is filled with brotherly love, haha, and grand babies.  The tree is trimmed and loaded with gifts, and I am ready for the next few weeks off to enjoy some me time. 
I plan on making my traditional cut out sugar cookies this week, lets hope I give them all away and not munch on them!!
