2010 was filled with fashion trends that I completely adored.  What trends are you going to be bringing with you to 2011?  Below are my favorites from the past year that I’m sure will have some staying power.

Fur, Fur, Everywhere

I get excited over sweatshirts.    I’m not sure why, but I think if a girl can look cute/sexy/attractive in a sweatshirt, she’s doing something right. Today, I visited Victoria’s Secret with a goal to find one of those uber-soft fleece ‘pink’ sweatshirts.  This goal was easily accomplished.  I found one in bright yellow and a size large that I’ll be sporting with leggings.  The oversized look is as comfy as it is stylish and I’m oddly excited over this purchase.  Are ‘Pink’ sweatshirts cheesy?  I know that highschool girls and younger have really taken a liking to Pink, but they have such a great fit, are oh-so warm and are always in the girliest of colors (can you see how I’m gushing over this!?)  This might be my new obsession.  The way that Abercombie and Fitch sweatshirts were once an obssession.  Okay, maybe they still are, I still sport them with pride.     Are you a sweatshirt girl?  Below are some sweats I’d wear any day.  Well, most days.

Wildfox Couture Baggy Beach Romper $108

Old Navy Women's Jersey Lounge Hoody $14.99

Markus Lupfer Fern Beaded Cotton Sweater $500

Victoria's Secret Everywhere Applique Pullover Hoody $25

Rebel Yell Hollywood Sweatshirt $98

Christmas is over and 2011 is quickly approaching.  I personally, can’t wait.  2010 was a good year.  Lots has happened, but I’m ready to be out with the old and in with the new.  I’ve also never been more serious about my New Year’s resolutions.    I’m completely ready to get a good (permanent) job, get fit, and make the most out of my time spent with friends and family.  I don’t think I’ve ever been so motivated, and althought I’m pretty good about sticking to my resoultions, the ones I’ve chosen this year are pretty life changing – but I’m ready for it.

– Not just workout, but get on a workout schedule. 

–  Eat right.  My diet starts January 1st, and I’m eating pasta, pizza, Tasty Tacos, and lots of bread until then.

– Get a job I love and put my all into it.

– Shop in my closet more than I do actual stores.

Pretty lofty goals, ay?  I’m ready for it, bring on 2011!

This makes me cry every time I watch it.  To be truthful I’m wiping away tears right now.  Merry Christmas, everyone, and lets not forget what Christmas is all about. 

I arrived home for Christmas in Wisconsin last night and couldn’t be happier to be back with my family.  The night was spent relaxing with a ham dinner and lots of HGTV (both pretty typical at the Berget household.)  The comfort and familiarty of these activities got me thinking about the random things that are tradition in our family around the holidays. 

Bailey’s  At Random Times – Anyone who knows my mom knows she’s not much of a drinker, but she does have a love for Bailey’s.  A couple years ago, we were working on Christmas cards in the middle of the afternoon and she decided it was a good time for some of the Creamy liquor.  Since then, we’ve made Bailey’s a Christmas tradition and it really does make the perfect nightcap on a snowy evening.

– Laying by the Fire – My sister and I take turns laying directly in front of our fireplace.  We’ve done this for as long as I can remember and it’s our favorite spot in the house.  I mentioned my love for fire places here and am certain in stems from there constantly being a fire in the fireplace during all the chilly winter months.

Fondu & Cranberry Pudding – Fondu is my family’s favorite meal and one that we always had on Christmas day along with my mom’s delicious cranberry pudding (expect a post on this in the future & get excited for it cause it’s amazing.)  The best part of fondu, is it makes it a long, drawn out meal, perfect for a snowy evening.

Horses in the Snow – The re’s nothing like going out to the barn on a snowy day.  The horses at our house aren’t really rideable, but it’s still fun to go out and see how furry they’ve become and chase them around (I’m sure the neighbors wonder, but that’s okay.)

Christmas Eve Car Ride –  Every Christmas Eve we go to my Grandma and Grandpa Erickson’s.  The ride home is always late, and there’s something very cozy about all of us being stuck in the car for an hour while listening to Christmas music on the way home. 

What are your favorite holiday traditions?

Santa came early to my house!   And who knew he had such good fashion sense, for he brought me some adorable J Brand Houlihans that I’ve been lusting over for MONTHS now.   When I first tried this particular style of pant on in the army green, I was disappointed – they were unflattering in every possible way.  But when I found them in black and tried them on, it was love.  The cut is flattering, the ankle zipper details adorably edgy, and the cargo pockets look streamline when in an all black hue.  Merry Christmas my loves, and here’s hoping Santa is as good to you as he was to me!
