What to Wear : Winter Outfit

I don’t know about you but I’m sitting here wondering, “What happened to Fall?!”  It feels like it went from 70* to 40* in just a few days.  Eek!  I wasn’t prepared.  Now I’m scrambling to get my Fall and Winter assembles dredged out of my closet.  Note to self: Next year, no matter how warm October is, get your closet ready for Winter.  So here’s my first Winter outfit.  You can never go wrong with stripes!

Winter Beach Wedding

This winter beach wedding that took place in Malibu, California looks effortlessly romantic!  Muted blues, soft whites and a sandy shore wrap up this small and personal event.  I think the table setting is my favorite with pieces of coral and coastal poetry written on translucent paper.  Not to mention I’d love to take those plates home with me!  Take a peek at what I’m talking about:

I think one of the challenges for winter brides is finding a chic way to stay warm.

Winter Brunch Cocktail Recipe

I love the idea of hosting brunch at home instead of always going out.  Especially during the winter when you may have to wait in a breezy entry way for a table to become available!  I think as far as brunch cocktails go, it’s pretty standard to have bloody marys and mimosas but I also like the idea of having something a little more unique to offer my guests.  This plum-filled cocktail from My Diary of Us fits the bill.  Grab the recipe below:

winter brunch cocktail recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 Plums
    6 Thyme Sprigs
    Juice from one Lemon
    4 Tbsp. Thyme Simple Syrup (1/2 Cup of Sugar, 1/2 Cup of Water, bring to a boil, remove from heat, add thyme sprigs, stir, and let cool. Chill until ready to use.)
    1 Bottle of Prosecco or your favorite bubbly

Directions:

Peel and chop 2 plums.
Muddle the plums with the thyme simple syrup and lemon juice until all of the plum juices have been released. (You can also muddle right in the glass if you prefer to have bits of fruit in your cocktail!)
Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker.
Pour over crushed ice evenly between two glasses.
Top off with prosecco and garnish with extra plum slices and thyme sprigs.
Serve immediately.
