Casual and Comfy

I don't know about you all, but my holiday season has been super chill.  No rushing around to get last minute presents (probably because I still have to get them...), no stressing over what to get who.  We try to keep it simple for Christmas presents for our boys.  In fact, because we move a lot we have had to keep everything very minimal.  I am not about to start toting boxes of toys to all these different countries!  I have come to like this because each gift my boys receive they cherish.  They are very appreciative, even over the small stuff.  I hope we can keep it this way.  I don't want to get caught up in having to keep up with the Joneses.  Because honestly, the Joneses are broke. 

So this is what I have been living in lately.  Not this exact outfit over and over again, although I kinda wish.  No makeup and I haven't really done much to my hair.  Just something comfortable and casual and warm.  We had our first snow this last weekend and it is perfect.
I am hoping to dress up the boys and husband and take some cute Christmas pictures in the snow.  Since we are going to Nice on Saturday (haven't started laundry or packing) I wanted to take the pic before we leave.  It't not looking too good as of now.
Outfit: Jeans: Rock&Republic // Shoes: Nordstrom Rack // Shirt: Gift // Vest: Gap // Hat: Italian market

So is everyone having a merry Christmas?  I sure hope so!!  If not, sit down, take a breather, have a cup of coffee or tea whichever you fancy and relax!  Remember the reason for the season, Jesus' birth, and then get back at it!

Oh and I will most likely be laying low for the rest of the year, we will be in Nice and enjoying some family time.  Anyone interested in doing a guest post for me?  I would love to have you!  Shoot me an e-mail : natalia{at}manouvellemode{dot}com

Merry Christmas!

I love your hat!!

I love that look! I always feel frumpy though while you look so chic. Do you have a hard time keeping your hat on? I have one similar to that and I love it but it is constantly sliding off. I've tried to fasten it with a few well hidden bobby pins and it helps a little. Have a great time with your family in Nice!

I just found your blog through your holiday hairstyles post for SITSgirls. You inspired me this week to play with my hair. Yesterday I teased the crown, put it in a bun and put a double, thin black headband on. Fun!

Anyway, just wanted to tell you that I'm enjoying your posts. Have a wonderful holiday!
