Happy Tuesday ladies. Christmas is a week away – eek – how’d that happen so fast?

When EILEEN FISHER invited me to collaborate with their making space for the special people in your life campaign, I was thrilled. I’ve been wearing and singing the praises of EILEEN FISHER for years and know many of you love them too. This campaign is to remind us to slow down and remember the reason for the season. Here’s how I am making space for loved ones.
We never did find our Christmas tree decorations in the stack of moving boxes so I bought a cheap set of lights plus a box of ornaments at the supermarket and called it a day. That’s a big change for me because I usually nitpick every detail but really – it’s just a tree. I needed it done so my grandson could hang ornaments on it and it didn’t need to be perfect.
He and I attended a grandparents Christmas event on Saturday where he met Santa, made ornaments, and ate sugary things until his tummy felt “weird”. He’s gone from being a ham for the camera to camera shy so I left my phone in my purse and focused all my attention on him. It was perfect.
I wore this velvet notch collar blazer with simple jeans and booties. It’s a quintessential boyfriend shape that’s styled for a woman. Their velvet is amazingly soft and luxurious with lots of new shapes this season.

When I picked up my jacket in the store I made a beeline for this drapey velvet jacket. It’s the most gorgeous green imaginable. I may have to go back for it.
I also fell for this classic collared velvet shirt. The sales lady was wearing it in Haze, open over my all-time favorite pants and this velvet Tee in black. The look was casually elegant and stunning.
I’m so excited that my daughter Vanessa is arriving from Canada in three days. We’ve planned some private time together to explore San Francisco before the whole family converges. She lives too far away for frequent visits so I relish each moment we can spend together.
EILEEN FISHER wants to remind us this season is the time to make space for the special people in your life…including you. Who will you make space for?
Thank you EILEEN FISHER for sponsoring this post and reminding us all to make space for the special people in our lives.
