Our Maple Tree

Keeping up with The Maples

Mama + Mini Monday: Black & White

| Leave a comment

“The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful…” This pretty much sums up our days here at the Maples’ house. It has been very cold and rainy for days now – the kind of weather that you really don’t want to take a toddler into. We have spent a lot of time snuggling up by the fire in our pjs. But we have gotten out and enjoyed some Christmas festivities. So today I am sharing a casual holiday outfit to wear when it is too cold to wear a dress! 😉

As I have said before, buffalo check is one of my favorite prints for Christmas. And the black and white buffalo check is perfect to pair with holiday colors. You can pair it with red, emerald green, metallic silver or gold. Today, we paired it with gold.

My shirt is very warm and soft – just perfect for these cold days (similar). My scarf is a favorite of mine. It is really soft, like a silky material and the color is the prettiest mustard/gold color. I finally found some black jeans. I have been on the hunt for a little while for black jeans and got them during the Black Friday sale at Loft. My black pom pom beanie is from TJMaxx, but you can find these anywhere. I have been wearing this hat on repeat because it is so warm and because, who has the energy to fix their hair during this crazy holiday season?! 😉

I purchased Ada’s shirt through Kidizen. Have you heard of this app, yet? A friend introduced me and I love it. It is a place to easily sell all of your baby’s clothes. And they have beautiful, practically new clothes for a great price. This shirt is from Gap (similar) and it was brand new with tags for $8! I love the details in this shirt – it has ruffles around the buttons and there is a metallic gold stripe woven in with the plaid – perfect for Christmas! I have started to sell some of Ada’s clothes, for anyone interested, go check us out (JamaMaples)! Ada’s bow is my new favorite. Small Peanuts Shop have the prettiest velvet bows you have ever seen. I really struggled to pick out a color, but you all knew that I had to get the gold one, right? 😉

As we were taking these pictures, the lights came one. Ada was so excited when they turned on. This girl loves her some Christmas lights! 🙂 #makesmyhearthappy

And some of my favorites. I love all the faces she makes. She is so sweet….

Well, most of the time! 😉

I hope you are all staying warm and enjoying all the fun that Christmas brings! Happy Monday ya’ll!
