1/2 Day Fun!

My youngest child, Gracie, had a half day at school today and we spent the afternoon enjoying some quality mother-daughter time baking, playing in the snow and shopping #greenmonday sales!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

You have to try these Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies by Baker By Nature! They’re to die for and really not too bad for you! If you’re looking for more recipes or fashion inspiration, follow my boards on Pinterest. I love pinning my fashion posts and re-pinning what I think is quality content.

It was a cold but pretty day in Buffalo, NY today. The snow was lightly falling all day so we played outside and of course I took advantage of someone being home with me for a photo op of my #ootd! I think this shawl coat by Ann Taylor is so pretty and I love the modern grey color. Dress it up or down.



Shop my look by clicking on the carousel of images below. The sweater leggings can be found locally at The Perfect Gift in Clarence Center, NY! Be sure to say hello to Deb T., the owner for me! She has so many great things if you’re looking for that perfect gift! Shop local and feel good about it!

After playing in the snow, I decided to check out #greenmonday sales online while Gracie enjoyed playing inside with a friend. I didn’t even know #greenmonday existed until today but if it gives me another excuse to shop…well ok! I like it!

I did a little clicking, found some great sales and purchased some cute things to wear to holiday parties. I managed to spend less than $100. Whew! Love that! See below.
