Happy Monday friends!  I’m here today to let you all know I’ve decided to take a break from blogging.  To be perfectly honest, there are so many personal things going on in my life right now that need my attention, that I found myself struggling to keep the blog afloat…not to mention, I had no time to grow it the way I wanted to.

The truth is, though, I love blogging and I certainly don’t see this as the end of My Closet and Hers.  Just a little break to get everything else in order.  Hopefully I will be back in a couple of months time!  Until then, stay stylish!

xoxo, Christi

My wardrobe is mostly a mixture of casual pieces and one-and-done pieces, like dresses, so I don’t own many blouses.  I recently picked this one up and I love the femininity of it with the pretty blush color and the delicate ruffles.  I wore it with black pants for a balance appropriate for the season.  I plan on pairing it with lighter colors in the spring.  It was such a good addition to my closet…it’s made me think I need to start looking for more blouses to add to the rotation.

Brand Spotlight_ Mango

Puffed Sleeves Blouse/ Asymmetric Blouse/ Flared Sleeves Dress

A lot of my Brand Spotlight posts feature brands that are modern and stay up to date with current fashion trends, but are also affordable.  Today’s post is no different.  Mango is a great place to shop when you want to try out the latest trends without spending way too much money.  As I was browsing Mango’s website for this post, it seemed like all of the pieces I was choosing had some sort of statement sleeves.  That makes perfect sense because the detailed sleeves that were big in 2016 are going to stick around and be a big trend for this spring also.  So while Mango has plenty of pieces that I’m loving, I naturally gravitated to the three above.  The pink puffed sleeved blouse knocks out two major trends for spring 2017…the color pink and the detailed sleeves.  The asymmetric blouse is slightly more dressy and would be the perfect piece for a date night or a girls night out.  And the flare sleeve dress is just darling and seems so airy and light…I totally want it in my dress rotation for those warmer months.  All of these pieces are under $60!  So if you’re looking to add some new trendy pieces to your closet, I recommend checking out Mango.

It usually takes me a while to warm up to retro style trends, and that was the case for the recent 90s fashion trend.  I have not worn light wash high rise jeans since the 90s and I had no plans to, but like a lot of trends, the more I saw them styled, the more I liked them.  So I got this pair from Old Navy that is a better version of the “mom jeans.”  I like that they add variety to my denim rotation and of course any denim purchase is well worth it, because denim can be styled in so many different ways.  Because I was feeling very 90s when I put on these jeans, I added a pair of plain white sneakers…because that’s obviously what I would have done in the 90s.  I wore this combination along with a solid black sweater for a casual weekend in the mountains with family.

Happy Friday!  Are you guys as excited about the fact that it’s the weekend as I am?  All of the snow days we had put me off schedule, but I’m excited to reset this weekend and start next week off on track!

As you know, I am a huge fan of oversized sweaters, so I was so excited when I saw this oversized sweater dress from Everly Oak!  I first saw it on the shop’s Instagram feed, and I fell in love.  The way it drapes…the color…how cozy it looked.  I bought it immediately!  I had my mind made up that I was going to purchase this dress no matter what, but I was thrilled to see it’s only $54!  It is the absolute perfect piece for this winter and I can already see myself living in it the next couple of months.

Winter Neutrals

I love wearing neutrals…especially in the winter.  Having plenty of neutrals to choose from makes it easy to mix and match and to layer up.  I know we already have a few cold weather months under our belt but we still have a couple left, so if you are looking for some more versatile pieces to add to your wardrobe this season, I’ve rounded up my favorites that are all under $100.  I’m really into trying to find pieces I want for the best deals, so this H&M faux fur jacket caught my eye immediately.  It looks so luxe, but get this.  It’s on sale for $60!  Any of the pieces above can be styled so many different ways, and at under $100, they are more than worth their money.

Happy Shopping! xoxo

We had plans last weekend to travel to Tennessee, but we ended up getting 8 inches of snow so we stayed put.  Before the snow  got too bad though, I went out for a quick girls’ night.  Before heading out, I threw a faux fur vest over a pretty lace top, with skinny jeans and nude pumps. I certainly love dressing cozy in the winter and this vest is as cozy as it gets.  I had been wanting to add more vests to my wardrobe, so I was very happy when I received this as a Christmas gift.  The layered fringe is so much fun, but the neutral color allows for more versatility with styling options.  Trendy and neutral….a great combination.  This vest was so comfortable, I even wore it the next day when I was lounging around the house.  That’s the best part about the vest…you can dress it up or down.  I can’t wait to wear it next paired with a swing dress and booties.

Happy Happy Friday!  It’s so hard to believe that this weekend we’re getting snow with a high in the 20s, and only a few days ago I was able to wear this off-the-shoulder sweater without a coat.  This marshmallow colored sweater was a gift from my sweet stepsister and I have already worn it twice now.  As far as OTS tops go, this one is extremely comfortable the way it hangs on the body, and the shoulders don’t slide up like some of my other OTS tops.  Having bare shoulders made me forget for a minute that it was winter…which I have to admit, was really nice for this girl who is not a fan of cold weather.  This sweater is soft and sleek and comes in black as well!

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of Old Navy denim.  I am so happy I discovered this a few years ago, because I have saved hundreds and hundreds of dollars on jeans.  I still love my designer jeans and will splurge when I find a pair I really love, but when I am wanting to add to my denim rotation, I always check Old Navy first now.  This pair I’m wearing fits well, feels great, and I’ve already gotten so many wears out of them.  And get this……they are only $15!  I am still shocked every time I remember that.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and stays safe! xoxo

I am not what you would call a beauty junkie.  Until a few years ago, I didn’t pay too much attention to the beauty products I bought.  But as I get older, I realize more and more how important they are to keep you looking your best.  While I still go for a more natural look when it comes to beauty, I have been adding more products to my rotation.  Below, I’ve rounded up my favorite products I’ve recently begun using, as well as products that I want to start using in this new year.

2016-beauty-favorites

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit  2. BeautyBlender Makeup Sponge  3. NARS Tinted Moisturizer  4. DHC Eye Masks         5. L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Face Mask  6.  Aveda Damage Remedy Hair Repair

All of these, are products I have just started using within the past year or two.  I never wore makeup on my face, other than concealer and an occasional powder, until I found this NARS tinted moisturizer.  It is perfect for me because it is so light, yet it still provides the perfect amount of coverage.  I put it on using the BeautyBlender sponge for even application.  The contour kit is the newest addition and I’m still learning how to use it…I’m telling you, these things don’t come naturally to me.  I have been watching how-tos on YouTube and the couple of times I’ve used it, I’ve loved the subtle difference it made to my overall look.

beauty-wants-2017

1. Living Proof Dry Volume Blast  2. Dior Lip Glow  3. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion  4. NeuLash Lash Enhancing Serum  5. Dior Nail Glow  6. Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Brush Set

These are the products I want to use starting in this new year.  The Living Proof Volume Blast, I have heard such great things about and it is just what my hair needs.  I am also very excited to try the lash enhancing serum, because I would love to have longer, fuller lashes.  The Dior Nail Glow is a product I’ve wanted for a while and I’m not really sure why I haven’t scooped it up yet.  It instantly brightens your nails and I absolutely love the way it makes them look.

Happy New Year!  I am so happy to see 2017 you guys…2016 was a tough one, but I am so excited to see where this new year takes me.  I have so many goals for this year and I can’t wait to get started on them!

This is the kind of look I like to wear in the winter for running errands and tackling my to-do list.  On days where I don’t have any grand plans, it’s easy for me to stay in lounge clothes all day, which is all well and good…until I realize I actually do have to go out in public.  Then I try to come up with reasons to not actually leave the house, because starting to get ready in the middle of the day…I mean, what’s the point?  For this reason, I try to make sure that I get up and make an effort to get ready on the mornings where I plan on staying home to get things done.  Because chances are, I’m going to have to go somewhere.  A cozy sweater and comfy pants are always my go-to for these days.  When walking out the door, I just add a colorful scarf to elevate the outfit a bit.  This one from Loft is so pretty with all of its different shades of pink.  Plus it’s so warm.  The perfect winter scarf in my opinion.
