Happy Holidays Loves! It’s the most wonderful time of the year indeed. Since our baby boy turned 8 months old recently, we decided to do another family shoot. This was the first time he actually had a full on laughing session in front of the camera so I think we took like 2000 photos. Editing this set was serious work since I couldn’t decide which photos I wanted to keep. There were so many good ones! I guess that’s not a bad problem to have. :)

Being a mom has changed my life so much. Despite having so little time to do anything for myself (hence, I haven’t posted as often), I wouldn’t want it any other way. He brings so much fun, love and happiness to my life. Every day with him is a surprise and an adventure. We are so grateful for him.

For this holiday shoot, I’m wearing a slouchy sweater, suede skirt and pair of stunning black over the knee boots. The photos don’t do these boots justice. They’re even more beautiful and flattering in person. As a petite woman, I have an affinity for shoes with heels. I prefer sleek, slim tall heels, but they’re hard to find in over the knee boots and in small sizes. So when I found this, I was so happy to find they came in size 5. I’m a 4 but with socks, they fit me perfectly. Love these boots? Get 15% off using “alina” at checkout on DelmanShoes.com.

Feminine, relaxed and elegant are the words that come to mind when I think of Parisian style. Luckily, I don’t have to travel too far to get a taste of beautiful Parisian fashion thanks to Maison Jules. Every piece in the Maison Jules collection embodies a sweet charm that is unique to Paris. Since I’ve been loving the plaid trends lately, I decided to create two distinct looks using some gorgeous plaid pieces from the Maison Jules collection.

First up is this plaid poncho, by far the most beautiful poncho I own. Love the vibrant color and material is super soft. Since I’m going a feminine and romantic vibe, I’m pairing the poncho with a beige long-sleeved sweater dress. The dress perfectly compliments the poncho while letting be the star of the outfit.

My second look is a classic plaid combo with jeans. It definitely resonates that cute tomboy vibe which is the essence of the Parisian street style in my opinion. Both the plaid shirt and jeans are very soft. I absolutely how they feel on my skin, especially the shirt which almost feels like silk! I got these Maison Jules jeans in size 0 and they fit fabulously on my petite frame. Although I’m not showing my backside in these photos, I love how it hugs and lifts your apple bottom so well. If you had a chance to stop a Macy’s store, you should definitely try these jeans!

Which of these outfits would you wear?
