THE ODELLS RETREAT COLLECTION

AS I’VE GOTTEN OLDER, I’VE REALLY COME TO APPRECIATE THE CHANGING SEASONS. WHEN THE CLOCKS FALL BACK AND THE NIGHTS GET LONGER, I FIND MYSELF REACHING FOR CLOTHES THAT HAVE AN EFFORTLESS EASE, ARE NOT FUSSY, AND CAN EASILY BE WORN CASUALLY WITH SNEAKERS AND A BEANIE OR DRESSED UP A BIT WITH HEELED MULES AND SOME RED LIPSTICK. FOR OUR FAMILY, WE SPEND A LOT OF WEEKENDS DURING THIS TIME OF YEAR AT OUR BIG BEAR CABIN. IT’S A TIME OF REFLECTION FOR ME. I LOVE THINKING ABOUT THE YEAR WHICH HAS PASSED IN ANTICIPATION OF THE SEEDS I PLAN TO SOW FOR THE YEAR TO COME. READING, JOURNALING, TAKING EVENING BATHS AND AND PREPPING MY VISION BOARD FOR THE NEW YEAR ARE JUST A FEW OF MY TREASURED NIGHTTIME ACTIVITIES DURING THE MONTH OF DECEMBER. HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE PIECES FROM OUR RETREAT DELIVERY ALONG WITH HOW I PLAN TO WEAR THEM. I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS TIME OF YEAR AS MUCH AS I DO.

MY FAVORITE NEW DRESS OF THE SEASON IS THE FAUX WRAP DRESS. I LOVE THAT THIS IS A SOMEWHAT SLIM FITTING DRESS BUT IT STILL EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE. IT’S A GREAT DRESS TO WEAR IF YOU HAVE AN IMPORTANT MEETING AT WORK AND WANT TO LOOK SHARP. IT’S ALSO A GREAT STYLE TO THROW ON BEFORE YOU MEET UP WITH YOUR GIRLFRIENDS FOR A COCKTAIL.

I’M ALL ABOUT A STYLISH COMFY DRESS AND THE EASY MID LENGTH DRESS IS NO EXCEPTION. I PLAN TO PAIR THIS BEAUTY WITH SNEAKERS AND OUR SLOUCH SWEATER IN INK LAYERED ON TOP. IT’S THE PERFECT WEEKEND DRESS.

I LOVE OUR CLASSIC TUNIC AS A STYLE IN GENERAL, BUT THIS ONE IS PARTICULARLY SPECIAL BECAUSE OF THE BEAUTIFUL COLORS AND MODERN PRINT. I’M GOING TO PAIR IT BACK TO SOME BLACK ANKLE SKINNY MOTHER JEANS THAT HAVE HOLES IN THE KNEES. IT WILL LOOK FANTASTIC WORN WITH OUR BLACK MULE FROM FALL AND A SHRUNKEN BLAZER.

EVERY WOMAN NEEDS A STAPLE WARM COAT IN HER CLOSET. BUT FOR ME, I TEND TO STEER AWAY FROM SUPER BASIC ONES. I LOVE OUR COLOR BLOCK WOOL COAT. IT CAN BE WORN OVER A DRESS FOR DATE NIGHT OUT OR EASILY WORN CASUALLY WITH JEANS AND A T-SHIRT. THE WEIGHT IS ALSO VERY SUBSTANTIAL, SO I PLAN ON TAKING IT WITH ME TO NY THIS WINTER WHEN WE TRAVEL FOR WORK.

THIS WINTER, FIND YOUR ADVENTURE, SEEK RELAXATION AND PRESS REPEAT.
