Fashion, Life

Hello, Winter // Life Update + OOTD


Jacket // Adrienne Vittadini at TJ Maxx *This coat is no longer available, but I found it on Poshmark here! My coat is a size small for reference. 🙂 I also found very similar coat linked here.)

Jeans // Calvin Klein

Boots // American Eagle 

Gloves // Received them as a gift years ago! Linked similar here.

I cannot believe it is December 8th. The wedding is only 2 months away, and my bridal shower is tomorrow!!! Time is moving incredibly fast. I can’t keep up! I feel as if it was just summer, but winter has definitely arrived in Pennsylvania. I am so happy that we are in the midst of the Christmas season, and I’m trying to enjoy every second. Life has been a bit hectic balancing two jobs, makeup work, this lovely little blog, wedding planning, and preparing for Christmas. I must admit, I have been stressed his past week. I always try to share happy and inspiring posts here, but I also want this blog to be a true reflection of me. I get easily anxious and stressed, but I do the best I can to manage that. Lists are my best friend. 🙂 I’m slowly getting on top of things.

On a more exciting note, I am planning my 12 Days of Christmas series! Last year was so much fun, and I’ve enjoyed looking back on my previous posts (almost like a little online scrapbook.) I can’t wait to share some festive recipes, outfits, activities, and a possible giveaway with you all. I’ll be posting every day for 12 days leading up to Christmas! Is there anything specific you’d like to see? Please feel free to let me know in the comments below. Also, if any of you would like to join me in the 12 Days of Christmas blog series, feel free to email me here and let me know! The more the merrier. 🙂

Have a lovely weekend!
xx, Madison

    Your coat is everything! I am in need of a sturdy coat like this for the Winter season. I can’t believe how quickly your wedding is approaching it’s so exciting! Btw, your hair looks stunning!
