 Last Christmas Gavin was finally fully into Christmas and not just the presents. He got very excited about decorating our Christmas tree, so after teaming up with Gymboree's campaign #TheBestTimeToBeAKid I thought it was the perfect time to give Christmas an early start and take him to the tree farm to get his own little Christmas tree for this year. Growing up, my family always had an artificial tree so the idea of going out and cutting down our own tree was a little foreign to me but was a tradition for Kevin and his family growing up so naturally when Kevin stole me from the city and brought me out to the country of New Jersey he dragged me out to the tree farm. Now we have also adopted the tradition of going to cut down our own tree. 

We were the only ones at the tree farm (who else would get a tree the first week of November?!)  But the perks were that we had the whole place to ourselves and Gavin was able to dress up without having to bundle up. The weather was perfection. 

Gavin's favorite color is Red, so he chose to wear Gymboree's Red flannel button down shirt. We then added Gymboree's Navy Vest, Olive Green sweats, and this cute multi color pom-pom hat to tie the look together. Gavin had a blast running in and out of the trees and playing hide and seek. We also brought some fake snow for him to throw around and he had a ball. 

We all watched Kevin do the hard work and cut down the tree then Gavin tried to help him load it into the wagon. He was excited to get it home. After the long day we all took a rest and decided we would decorate the next morning.

The next morning I heard Gavin's little footsteps heading to the living room. I looked at the time and it was only 6:30am! He usually wakes up from 8 to 9am, so I know he couldn't wait to start decorating. With one eye open, I went to check on him and he was already digging into the decorations bin. He just loves everything about Christmas, even these pajamas and Santa slippers made him happy, and he does not like wearing slippers. Anyway, we put some Christmas songs, danced and decorated the tree together. If you only saw him, he sure was having a whole lot of fun. For him, Christmas is definitely one of the best times to be a kid.

When I first started blogging in 2008, wearing sneakers was a no-no. If you weren't in 4 inch heels or higher you were not in trend which I thought was such bullshit. Now everywhere you go, you see sneakers paired with power suits, satin dresses and so on. I've always been a sneaker girl, and now with Gavin, even more. I love my heels, don't get me wrong, but I love the feeling of being able to run after Gavin without twisting my ankle. 

Anyway, here are some street style looks that I found on Pinterest and some sneakers that I think would be great for Fall.





Zara (old) blazer (shop blazers here) | Zara turtleneck | H&M jeans (shop similar frayed jeans here) | Rag & Bone boots (shop Red boots here)



So after not wanting Summer to leave, I am officially ready for Fall and Blue & Cream has some great fall essentials. Let's start with the oversized coat, it's perfect for those cold mornings while you make your quick run for coffee. 

The oversized sweater is a must have, pair it with these GRLFRND straight leg jeans and the IRO boots and you have yourself an effortless day look. The Smythe blazer is another favorite of mine. I love the print and I think it pairs up pretty nicely with these glitter Golden Goose sneakers. 

As for the A. L. C. velvet dress, I would wear it with some flare jeans during the day and take the jeans off for a girls night out, which I am very much in need of. 
Hope you like my picks!
