LOTD Winter Weekend Wardrobe | Knit Wit

I wore this look last weekend to Christmas On The Farm. I don't follow a lot of rules these days when I get dressed so while some may think this is a lot of knit in one outfit, I loved how it came together and the comfort level was equal to wearing a blanket.

I remember when I was a girl I would make fun of my mom for dressing super warm but not always looking super chic. Now that I am a mom (and mature woman) I am so over sacrificing warmth for style (sorry mom now I get it) but I think I struck an even balance with this outfit. I did wear a coat to Christmas On The Farm  and my rule for winter coats these days is, they need to cover my bum to truly do the job. Lessons learned along the road I guess.

All of the pieces in this outfit are items I have had for years but I found similar items and showcased them in the carousel below if you want to shop this look. I featured some key makeup pieces I am wearing as well.

Please share your Canadian winter dressing rules, tips and tricks in the comments.

James 1:17

This was my memory Bible verse from two weeks ago. I love reading and reciting these Bible verses daily, they strengthen me. I have always heard people say "let the word penetrate your soul" reading the same verse everyday for a week really does that, it penetrates me on a deep level and lifts me up each morning. 

EVERY, I need the reminder regularly that all this good and all the successes in my life are from above. It is not by my own strength or ability that I have obtained or accomplished anything, it is all a blessing from God. It is my hearts desire to know God, submit to Him and live a life lead by Him. Thank you Lord for taking this hot mess woman and turning me into someone who is able to do some good work for you. 

Walking and learning by faith everyday....

Christmas On The Farm Sarnia

I have been known to say that Sarnia is the most fun in the summer but it might be the most fun all year long. Christmas On The Farm hosted by the Seaway Kiwanis  was a holiday event right from a Hallmark movie and we loved it. There were horse drawn buggy rides, chestnuts roasting on an open fire, ice sculptures and Christmas cheer for all.

I am so grateful for our Sarnia community, the organizations and volunteers who work hard to bring these events to life. I can only imagine the work that goes into creating them. I would love to say thank you for all the work, it was completely enjoyed by my family. With busy little ones, these events allow us to get out of the house, experience new things, connect with our community and create wonderful family memories. 

Below is a video of our day and some pictures of our adventure on the farm, I hope you will take a few minutes to check it out. Please comment and let me know what your favourite Sarnia events are during the Christmas season.

Merry Christmas
