Faux Fur Stole + Black Blazer

0

Over the weekend, I celebrated a good friend’s bachelorette weekend here in Chicago. We ate sushi, got our nails done, gifted the bride-to-be with lingerie and danced the night away. It was THE perfect girls weekend.

Plus, I was able to wear this new high-low blouse that is going to be a great staple in my wardrobe because of the shape, material and texture. Here I’ve paired it with a leather-sleeved black blazer (similar versions here and here) and this super-cozy faux fur stole (on sale!).

Welcome to Everyday Cuvée!

Here you will find me sharing a blend of fashion, lifestyle, home decor and travel – the best bits and pieces that come together to create my “Everyday Cuvée.”

If you have been following my work, Courtney Callahan Paper, then you may have seen some of these topics pop up throughout my work. Why, you ask? Because I really enjoy talking and sharing about style just as much as I love talking about weddings every day (and many nights).

But, I realized that even though they are both creative fields, they should remain separate. Work will be work…although admittedly very fun work, and this blog and my Instagram (@courtneycallahanmyers) will be a little lighter and more personal.

I hope you’ll follow along to see where this road leads!

Aztec Sweater Coat | Everyday Cuvee – A Fashion + Lifestyle Blog by Courtney Callahan Myers

This Aztec Sweater Coat  has been on heavy rotation this winter. In addition to it be warm and cozy, the color combination is easy to match with black and white which is a major portion of my wardrobe.

This is the first time I had ordered from that company and honestly was a little wary of “one size fits all” but it really doesn’t matter because it’s oversized. Plus, it is under $30 which is a major steal!

My Running Essentials | Everyday Cuvee – A Fashion + Lifestyle Blog by Courtney Callahan Myers

Last week on what would have been my dad’s 67th birthday, I took a long cruise along Lake Michigan on my bike. During my ride, I thought a lot about my dad and the things we used to enjoy together – mainly, running.

We had run two half marathons together, one full marathon and shared countless conversations about training, articles we had read in Runnner’s World and our running essentials. It was something we shared in common, something I highly valued and definitely the reason I started running in the first place.

But, life, work and excuses have gotten in the way of me signing up for any races longer than an 8K in the past three years and I realized how much I missed it. So the moment I got home that day, I registered for a half-marathon in April. Even though it is still five months away, I have already increased my weekly mileage to prep my body for the run and potentially beat my PR.

Since I run along Lake Michigan, it is important to have the right clothing and accessories to keep me protected from the wind and cold plus keep me motivated to pick up the pace. These warm, running tights are going to be in heavy rotation this winter and are a good alternative to my basic black running pants.

I am looking forward to hitting the pavement, working toward a goal and reconnecting with my dad out on the path.

Leather-trimmed coat | Everyday Cuvee – A Fashion + Lifestyle Blog by Courtney Callahan Myers

Yesterday, it snowed in Chicago…snowed. It was a harsh reality after the Indian-summer weather we had earlier in the week and I was not too happy.

You know the kind of day where all you want to do is wrap yourself up in your coziest blanket and start a fire? Well, this leather-trimmed number is pretty much the coat version of that cozy blanket. You should probably pick one up for yourself. And maybe start a fire too.

Florals at the Beach

I am spending the week with my family in sunny Watercolor, Florida (right next to Seaside), and feeling quite spoiled by all the warm temperatures, bright sun and soothing sounds of the ocean. This is our second trip as a family to the same location, but Michael and I took the opportunity to head out to a new beach town for a date night before everyone arrived for our vacation.

We chose Caliza Restaurant in Alys Beach which is this all-white, super-luxe resort community and had THE most amazing meal – red snapper for me and surf & turf for Michael based on a recommendation from our friends.

Since the nights are still super warm, I chose this easy-breezy hibiscus floral dress I snagged on super-sale from J. Crew; paired with my favorite white Kendra Scott earrings and a rattan purse also from J. Crew. It was the perfect, summery outfit for poolside dining.
