Holiday Style with Evereve

It's that time of year again, holiday season! We have Thanksgiving this week and then my family rolls right into our Christmas parties starting as early as December 9th. And we can't forget about NYE and all the fun events in-between.Yes, it all happening so in my opinion it's best to have your outfits planned out in advance, that way you'll have one less thing to worry about. Weather you are hosting or attending, dressing up or keeping it casual, Evereve has you covered

Now lets talk a bit about Evereve, shall we? Evereve is a store that was created by a mom for moms alike. Megan Temte (the Co-Founder & Co-CEO) created a place that is not only kid friendly, but stocked with clothing and stylists on hand to make it a great experience for you, the shopper. What this means is, the isles between the clothing racks are extra wide so you can easily get a stroller though, there is a kid area with toys and snacks so your kids look forward to coming in as much as you will, the dressing rooms are family sized, and they have lots of brands for the ever changing mom body. Brands like Free People, 7 for all Mankind, Hudson, BB Dakota (to name a few), plus three brands that can only be found at Evereve. 

The stylists can not only pull looks ahead of time (simply call ahead, give them your size and what event you need a pairing for and they will happily pull looks), but they can also help you as a walk-in if you're not knowing your style or want to try something new. I don't know about you, but after I had my kids, I didn't recognize my body. How wonderful that there is a store where people are very well educated on all of their inventory and can help you find styles that are flattering for your body? All I have to say is I wish I knew about Evereve years ago. Better late then never! ;)

If you were not following me over on my IG stories this day, check out the video recap below. I went to their South Barrington location and had such great help from Gina, the head stylist and manager. She pulled three holiday inspired looks for me to try out, and then I went through the store and pulled some items too. I had so much fun playing dress-up and ended up loving items I probably would have never tried on. That's another great thing about having a stylist help you. They have ideas for your body type that you maybe wouldn't have tried on or picked out for yourself, and then you put them on and fall in love. It's truly such a fun process. I ended up with a lot of great pieces after this day!

If you follow me over on my IG stories, then you saw how I came up with our family Christmas card photo outfits in one hour flat. Yes, this momma knows how to shop and shop fast for that matter! With only two stops, I was able to grab pieces for both my kids, the hubby, and myself to add to what we already had in our wardrobe. I can't wait to share those photos with you (full blog post coming soon), but in the meantime I wanted to share what I wore. Here is the look I tossed together to match with my family this day. (What...this old thing?) ;)

Holy freezing temps in the Midwest Batman! I think it's safe to say, we skipped fall all together and went from summer temps right into winter ones. Which means it is officially sweater weather aka my favorite time of year. I am loving all the fun sleeved sweaters out this season and also the amazing price points. This beauty comes in three colors and is on sale for $35! I mean...the maroon one is calling my is the red one, but I digress...

Giveaway: Kavalis Jewelry

You guys, it's giveaway day! I have teamed up with Kavalis Jewelry and one lucky winner will receive a sterling silver bar pendant like the one I'm wearing in these photos (a $150 value!). The more I read about Kavalis, the more I loved what the brand stood for. They are all about capturing moments and stories in our lives and turning them into wearable memories. You can literally take your children's drawings and/or handwriting, upload it on their site, and turn it into a piece! I mean, how cool is that?

I personally have a few pieces in mind, and a few gifts in mind too! Wouldn't these make great holiday gifts for mom and dad? That said, when I picked out my bar pendent, I wanted to write something I needed in my life right now. It is so important to take the high road, in all aspects of our lives. And in this day and age, it is important to be what you want the world to look like, no matter how the world treats you. So for me, it was "be the light". And that is something I am really trying to do everyday and teach my kids to do everyday as well. I have to say, I truly love the quality of this pendant! For me the best part is that it's lightweight, I have cervical spinal stenosis and saying wearing heavy necklaces is a pain is an understatement. ;) I love layering necklaces and this one is a perfect length to add to my favorite layering necklaces.
